You are correct - I dont care, means that I dont dwell on someone calling me names over a forum.

Oh man... I would love to know who ran the wrong route. Iím looking at a replay and weíre lined up four wide. Cook and Ginn on the outside with Smith and MT in the slots. Everybody runs a little curl route except for Thomas and thatís where Brees is looking first.

If I saw one thing about Brees that bothered me (other than the bad bomb into double coverage) it seemed like he was really struggling coming off his first reads and getting the ball out to check downs. It was puzzling.

We likely win going away if we had Rankins and Davenport. Those two injuries were brutal.

Brees was awful.

That was a push off.

Vikings made fewer mistakes. They were the better team today.

We know you don't care. We know this because you keep apologizing and then, every week, you're back being an asshat.

That fumble and pick were bad plays by him and ultimately cost us, but that man was underpressure the WHOLE game

What puzzled me was why Jared Cook was totally absent from the game until late 4th quarter. Then, it's like we were holding him out for something like a sneak attack and he comes in and catches like 4 balls in a row. We needed him all game!

What is that? Why do that? Why depend on receivers known to drop balls during the season and hold Cook out? Makes no sense whatsoever.

See now thatís a good observation. Iím as emotional as the next Saints fan after a loss like this, but I try to avoid sweeping generalizations like ďBrees sucks now.Ē It must be a lack of trust in his pass catchers.

Remember when we weren’t predictable?

FBs for TDs on wheel routes and stuff?

Re: Observations from Saints loss to the Vilings

For whatever reason the Saints are a finesse team at home but not on the road? Latavius Murray had 7 total carries today. Only 7.

Credit the Vikes for staying committed to the run but Dalvin C really abused us today.
