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.
It's hard to get mad when it's your own damn fault.

I don't think we got rolled, though. We rolled over.

We were just bad today -- both sides of the ball. Couldn't stop the run ( we were famous for that all season ). I mean Jesus -- we know who Adam Thelin is, ok? Don't get me started on the O Line. Can't blame this one on the refs. So.... yeah. Rolled over and went to sleep. Tomorrow, I bet there are many questions in the locker room and front office.

because I told you its what the league wanted. I just figured theyd make it more realistic than losing to the Vikings lol. if you are a grown man between 30 and 60 etc. and you still think youre watching a natural competition. You need to re-look at your life and perceptions. The Saints have always lost when it counts but for 2006. they arent going back for another 50 years

Re: The Saints lost because...

We lost because we had 'em and Payton called off the dogs and pulled Taysom out of the game on what was a game winning drive...

WE HAD THEM...

Re: The Saints lost because...

So much for "saving" the run game for the playoffs huh ?

Peat was getting skull drug throughout the game pre injury. If you are struggling in a PLAYOFF game, make adjustments. Instead of inserting Easton (had played well while AP was injured), coach throws Onameh out there instead.

Unclear why SP would activate & start Peat when Easton had been playing so well. The former 1st rounder played poorly in a game that meant everything. Not a bust, but he's close for me. I see no way to defend this guy. 2 seasons and he's still missing assignments/blocks.

Stubborn coach .

Side note observation inside a minute -

Remember the false start penalty on Kamara late in the game when guys weren't set? All I know is that Brees had to wait on Tre to get on the field. That miscue cost us 11 seconds to run off and go back 5 yards.

Trequan Smith has been a huge disappointment in New Orleans.

I'm positive we'll see big money or a high draft pick on OG in the offseason.
Often overlooked but the main reason we were so successful in 2009 was Carl Nicks and Jari Evans. Interior lineman are always the unsung heroes.
