The Saints lost because...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm not even mad. More disappointed because Minnesota came in a whipped our ass. Straight up. Two years ago I was destroyed by the play. Last year I was infuriated by the no call. This year however... We just got ...

Two years ago I was destroyed by the play.
Last year I was infuriated by the no call.
This year however... We just got rolled. And we couldn't do enough to come back.

Maybe the Antonio Brown curse is legit. Even a workout was too much.

Raiders - on playoff bubble and came up short
Steelers - same
Patriots - bounced in first round at home
Saints - same

Re: The Saints lost because...

I want to pick four of those choices.

Ok.
Real.
Saints win with and lose with Brees.
He IS THAT good when he is on and when he is off, the whole thing falls apart.
What to do with a qb that cost a fortune and is 40?
If that qb is Brees, you keep him and let him retire from your team.
Saints have other weak spots to strengthen.

My question, comment.
Next year, if Brees is off, send in Bridgewater.
Hindsight now. Just talk.
Because Brees was off today, Hill was hot, Bridgewater was waiting in the wings, maybe they should have been sent in.

Like I said , hindsight.

Ginn, off. Kamarea has an injury and never got back like he was.

SB, Saints would not have been there.
SanFran is going all the way winning it.

Saints probably would have been knocked out by GreenBay.
If not, definitely by the 49ers.
I would have liked, really thought Saints would have won today.
Vikings are going to get crushed by GreenBay.

Respectfully, Vikings found our Achilles heel and they beat it like a drum for 3 quarters. Just like Atlanta did. We still had no answer until it was too late.

Re: The Saints lost because...

Pressure up the middle has always given Brees trouble. This is nothing new. Every team knows it. Minnesota had the D-line to succeed doing it.

Its why we have always valued interior linemen highly. Our interior line just got beat today, which is one of the reasons Brees looked so awful.

I'm positive we'll see big money or a high draft pick on OG in the offseason.

Re: The Saints lost because...

This was an all around loss and you should be able to pick multiple options.

I have no problem with the refs from today. I don't care about a non-call at the end of the game after giving up a 40+ yard bomb pass to set them up first and goal. When Cousins dropped back and threw that bomb, I thought to myself - yep, here it is. That one big play in our playoff losses we are known for.

Brees' fumble in the red zone with 5 minutes to go was the dagger to this game. I swear by it that it was a miracle we even got to OT after that.

Minnesota should've blew us out if it weren't for them running such a conservative run-heavy game plan.
