Why did it take the play calling 3 quarters to get in to the quick drop 2 sec max ball out passing game that has worked in the past ... when defenses are pressuring constant pressure and he canít step up. I just donít get it .... adapt and overcome.

All this slow developing run and passing scheme cost us today.
We should have kept pounding with Murray. Kamara was playing soft all season.

Re: The Saints lost because...

Sure Kamara didn’t have a standout season but to say he was the reason we lost is ridiculous. As for Brees, he was garbage. The OL was not stellar in particular Peat. Brees as a veteran should know to protect the ball and not to throw into tight double coverage to Ginn or any other receivers beside Thomas because Thomas will more likely fight to make it a incompletion if he had no chance to make the catch. The throw was unnecessary and the risk was not worth the reward. Instead of competing to win he was competing with the Hill big play. Brees drank the koolaid thinking he gotta carry this team in reality he just needed to manage by throwing short underneath passes which he couldn’t do. BYE BYE Brees and his groupies.

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.

Re: The Saints lost because...

Kind of a combination but I had to put it on Drew... bright lights come on and he disappears. Time to move on.

2nd for me... too many injuries on D. The line got zero pressure all game and gave up the run all day. We need Davenport and Rankins, those guys play and itís a different game.

That TD they didn't get called back where clearly Cook doesn't cross the goal line

Davenport is much better against the run than Hendrickson. The combo was working great.

Re: The Saints lost because...

Brees was indecisive all day

OL was garbage

Receivers created zero separation

Kamara has lost his magic

FG miss was costly

Lattimore brain farted


Bright spots:
Davis
T. Hill
J. Jenkins

Iíll say this after playing DB all the way through high school. That was clearly a push off and when you are 6í getting pushed by a 6í6 TE an arms length is a lot of space is created and it also creates a lot of leverage to high point a ball. Itís like making a triangle of space. I am all for letting them play but I hate that a play like that ends a game and for the league to say that itís not even worth a review.
