Sometimes it's good to be a record-breaking veteran QB. I kinda felt like the likes of Brady, Rogers, Manning and Brees will get that call, get that spot, but most other ordinary QB's might not have. Drew is a warrior and the refs know it. Sometimes, if you pay your dues and prove you love the game enough, the game loves you right back, and that's Drew.
It looked like a for-sure safety to me. I was shocked the replay wasn't reviewed. Thought I must've just seen that wrong.

Re: Observations from the Saints' win against the Titans

This team came out flat footed and unmotivated then got pi$$ed off after they got handed 14 points. One thing that no one has mentioned is how DA allowed 14 points to be put up then the adjustments came and he made them go three and out repeatedly until we had a large lead and DA took his foot off the throttle again.

Re: Observations from the Saints' win against the Titans

I observe that we won this game on the road, outside, where it was cold, and raining, and the field was in terrible shape.

We ain't just a "Dome Team" fellas.

But I think if there was any hint of him being disgruntled with his touches or him not being happy or fussing about off-the-field issues (other than his injuries) I didn't see any trace of it in his body language yesterday AT ALL. Looked like he was "in the moment" and totally wanted to be there, period.


Hes been gone for 14 games hope hes back

Home record - 6-2
Away Record - 6-1

Our one road loss was on a grass field but considering that was the game Brees' was injured, kind of hard to blame it on the turf, especialy considering that we won in Chicago, Tampa, Tennessee and Jacksonville.

Re: Observations from the Saints' win against the Titans

A lot has been covered but...

- Titans first three TDs came from huge plays 41,49,36 yards... Our defensive secondary is a big play liability.

- Titans ran on us.. 150 yards at 5.7 YPC... The Ravens are going to give us fits.

- 11 ****ing penalties. No it wasnt the Refs we committed penalties. 3 false starts are not on any Ref.

We won on a natural surface, on the road, and came from behind against a QB that was 6-1..

I am very high on this team. Couldn't ask for more.
