Not saying our O line played well, but dang, some of you will blame anyone and anything before looking at Drew.

I am thankful for Drew, but I am a saints fan first, and right now I am eager to see what Payton can do with a different QB. Last time he had a different QB we went 5-0 and the games werenít close.
I'm eager to see what we can do without Payton. It was proved earlier in the season that regardless of QB, we can win if we run the ball and play defense.

Payton just refuses to commit to the run now. Gets way too pass happy and Brees either checks down or throws into double coverage, nothing in between.

Yep. Ted Ginn is done.

Saints cannot ignore the WR situation any longer. It cost us a chance to advance in the tournament.

Zimmer's back ground is all defense and he knew Sean P tendencies. He did what most were afraid of ... taking away our biggest threat, limiting Michael Thomas & daring other WR's to beat you.

This was one of the worst WR rosters NOT NAMED MT I've seen under Sean Payton in a long time.

And on the rare occasion he happens to be open, and Drew throws him the ball, there is a better than 50/50 chance he is going to drop it.

To be fair though our defense was playing totally different in that 5-0 stretch. Brees didn't have much time but there is no excuse for him being loose with the ball in that situation.

Re: Payton's Play Calling

The possession where they forced the ball to Kamara three times and then punted still aggravates me plus I’m still don’t understand calling that deep pass for Brees that lead to his INT

Ginn and SP cost Grayson an opportunity to shine this year.

Re: Payton's Play Calling

I can’t believe we never tried something with Lil’Jordan Humphrey. A slant, a seam route where he could outmuscle a DB on a jump ball, a crossing route, anything...

I get not having trust yet or familiarity, but damn it man just try something.

Re: Payton's Play Calling

All I can say is Sean Payton has his "favorites" on offense ... for whatever reason that is.

But I agree XVI, the Saints desperately needed a spark. Whose to say Humphrey couldn't make a play if you throw it in his direction?

Ginn should have been benched weeks ago. SP is stubborn.

"Saints became the first-ever team to lose in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs after completing a regular season with 13 or more wins".

Frustrating.

Everyone on the board knows it
Most definitely, Iíve been hoping for another QB for some time now. I think drew has gone down hill significantly and has proven there is no more deep ball left to be thrown. Some folks are finally coming to that conclusion as well. With all that said, there are many other reasons why we lost that game along with Drew, I focus on Drew because for years he gets a pass from everyone and thatís coming to an end.
