True but the longest tenured person we are counting on is not playing up to par. So while that may be true, Brees needs to get his head out his a$$

I don't think we overachieved, certainly not greatly. I think the problem is injuries at too many key positions. We are paper thin at this point and can't take on the Vikings AND the refs.

Injuries is a huge reason we look like this. I doubt any of the teams that made the playoffs lost as many starters as we did. Yet we overcame them. However, Minny is just a terrible matchup for us. Everything we do well, they can counter.

I think he just has no-one to throw it to. Our second best receiver is a RB... Its absolutely dire that we bring in a new TE and a couple of WRs this offseason.

That would of been a PI and an extra 15 yards for a late hit on the QB on our defense.

100% agree. Love to know what happened to Snead. Was he overachieving last yr? Cause he has done squat.
