Re: Observations from the Saints win over the Falcons

1. Apple will be fine, I believe he’s starting smelling himself again.
2. Special Teams is terrible. Same stuff against da Bears.
3. Dropped passes and those two PI’s kept game close. 3rd one not as much.
4. Ryan gets mushed to grd and Cam gets flagged. 3 pts at least off board.
5. Don’t think I’ve ever seen Drew more pissed.
6. Sean seemed more pissed than after missed call against Rams.
7. Someone needs to get demoted and fired today.
8. Bye Ted Ginn
9. Where the heck is Kirkwood?

Who is getting demoted/fired on the Saints squad?

SP isn't getting rid of anyone at this point of the season.

Re: Observations from the Saints win over the Falcons

- too many lazy players giving low effort.

- WRs and Cook canít catch and we need something to change, bring someone up from the PS or sign Dez because outside of MT Drew has no one to throw to.

- Kamara continues to look like **** this season, since he has been back from injury he has been a negative for the team. Murray needs to be much more involved.

- bad penalties on Defense yet again

- the worst special teams play Iíve seen in years, again thanks to AK for playing scared.

Overall, very disappointing game. This game should have been 40-9 but because they canít catch and donít want to grab an onside kick ATL actually had a shot at winning.

If I had to describe this team right now in 1 word... lackluster

Aside from the defensive front 7 everyone should be back in for practice this week.

The Saints are 0-42 when running the ball less than 15 times in a game.

The guy he was yelling at after the 2nd recover. Buddy looked liked he wanted to cry anyway.

When Sean reviews the tape on today/tomorrow, trust me Dan Rizzo will get dog cussed as well as the entire "all hands" team.

Side note - some of these penalties have been "questionable" but most of those PI calls were legit last night. Those flags on 3rd down continue to haunt us. Saints must do better in film study and @ practice.

CGM & Kamara dropped passes too. Brees slung a rainbow to Cook and it went right through his hands . Just about everyone not including the D line looked lazy for some reason. Lots to clean up before the showdown vs 49ers.

Congrats on NFC South champs though. One goal accomplished.

Re: Observations from the Saints win over the Falcons

~ I can understand/accept the garbage time lackluster effort at the end of the game. I don't like it, but I get it.
~ But what really makes me throw the remote are the Dumb @$$ penalties. We get enough B.S. penalties, we don't need the dumb@$$ penalties.
~ Apple?... WTF are you doing son? You can't be that stupid? You push a receiver out of bounds that you had covered on the sideline that couldn't have caught the ball anyway? On 3rd down? Are you f$%^&* taking stupid pills?
~ Cam... dude, we love you but your killing us. You block Ryan in the back drawing a flag AFTER Tuttle stiff-arms him out of the play & puts our Offense on the doorstep of the endzone? Stop doing stupid stuff!

Re: Observations from the Saints win over the Falcons

It’s funny that Failclown fans are whining about their O-Line like we didn’t have backups at LT and LG with a rookie at C. Takk McKinley is straight up garbage.

Vonn Bell played 104 snaps last night on 3 days rest. We’ve gotta re-sign this guy this offseason.

Re: Observations from the Saints win over the Falcons

One thing I took away from last night, ZERO sacks given up by an offensive line starting back ups on the left side. They looked good, helped that Brees threw quick passes but it’s going to take a game like that plus their A++ game to handle the 49ers defensive line. Not even sure if having Armstead back would be good, teams don’t rotate Olineman
