Re: Al Riveron explains why there was no OPI foul in final play of Saints-Vikings

I went back and re-watched this game today.

That was a tick-tacky call. The defender initiated contact and Rudolph shoved back. Again - shiny object being waved in front of your face here and distracting you all from the bigger picture.

I'm glad it wasn't called and can see where it possibly could've went either way. It's really a tick-tacky call being over-analyzed and again; shiny object waved in front of your face as a distraction. I kinda wish the Cousins bomb would've went for a TD, then we wouldn't be having this conversation. We always lose on big plays and that would've been it. It's humiliating but at this point, I've become numb to it. Speaking of that bomb pass play, where was the safety on the coverage to help out? No where to be seen. Yet again, Dennis Allen's schemes helping us lose.

7 pages in this thread complaining about refs... when you guys going to finally get it and start criticizing Payton, Allen and Brees?????? It's just a small minority of us that do and we're often shouted down for it, or like on SR forums and Canal Street Chronicles blogs, you get banned for it. They're the ones who lost this game for us. It was a miracle we even got to OT after how poorly we played, but this game was lost on the Brees' fumble as a nail in the coffin. Taysom Hill was single-handedly taking that game over, then Payton puts Brees back in for a passing play and he fumbles.

In my re-watch of this game, I don't know why Payton didn't attack the Vikings by rushing up the middle. Then again, we rushed only 17 times in the entire game and that is counting Brees scrambling. Murray had some good runs, but Payton kept force-feeding Kamara and he didn't bother taking advantage up the middle. Over 20+ minutes time of possession on the clock and could only score 20 points. That's on Payton and Brees, no one else.

There were mismatches all over the place for us and we didn't take advantage of any of them. And now we blame it on the refs.

Payton has been force feeding Kamara and neglecting Murray since the preseason.

Kamara ended up injured just as feared, and we lost a few games because he refused to play the hot hand in Latavius.

We been lamenting that since August

So happy shiny objects waved in front of YOUR face don't distract YOU EITHER. The view is nice from up here on OUR HIGH HORSE isn't it? Only WE KNOW what's really going on and who is to blame!!!
