Everyone needs to chill out
 
Okay so the Saints lost a game they should've won. The offense was flat, play call was questionable, the secondary was missing it's two best cover guys and the special teams gave up big returns.

Bad game. That's it. I'm sure SP will have the team ready for the Panthers this week.

Let's be honest here, we're 8-3. I don't know about you guys but if you'd have told me that before the season started, I would've been ecstatic. And if you would've told me after those first two games that we were going to go 8-3 by week 12 I wouldn't have believed you.

The Saints have a good team this year. But it's a dog fight in the NFC for the top teams. Especially the NFC South. Falcons and Kittens aren't going away.

The 8 game streak was awesome, and unbelievable at times. But hey, eventually every team has to lose. So better to the Rams then someone in the NFC South.

The team will get their **** together and be ready for this week. And hopefully we get our starting CBs back. If not, with how Harris got benched in the last game (thankfully), we should see more of Moore.

We lost to Dallas during our Super Bowl run.

Agreed. It was a tough game and unfortunately the offense and special teams both made life even more difficult for our defense, who played admirably all things considered. We played a good team at a really bad time for us and still could've won the game if not for a small handful of plays. Hopefully we get healthy again. If so I still think this team has a legitimate shot at a championship.

This is still a dangerous team. I'm relieved they lost. Now they can experience some humbleness and make adjustments that need to be made. Even the Patriots have a bad day at the office.

I think we win our next 3 at least and put everyone behind us for good. If that happens we will own all the tie breakers in the division.

I'll take 8-3 any year. We're in a good spot to make the playoffs. Crazy that 3 teams from the NFCS may all make it in. Playoffs will be extremely tough. We win the division and we likely have a home game against an NFCS team. Then, go to Rams, Minny, Philly depending on seeding and have to have 2 big road wins to get to the big game. One game at a time and keep pounding.

I agree, it's mostly frustration bubbling to the surface. Especially since we're better than the Rams, I know we could've won that game, even as busted up as we were.

We were also 13-0 before we started losing, Smash...

No, I'm excited about the season, just disappointed Payton forgot to run the damn ball...
