Man i still love our boys and will always be a fan but i think we are becoming to pass happy.I hate to say it but i think coach is not using the run game we had no business passing at the goalline like that plus we were passing to much when we were only down by 3. Another thing why dont we change mm to ft's spot when he is getting beat like that?

Take away the picks and we score 37 points. Nothing wrong with pass happy offenses. I love it. Love the West Coast more than anything, more than the "let us establish the run early and set up the pass."

As for why we don't change CBs, I don't know...it is what it is...

probably because as bad as thomas and craft have been, we might even have worse sitting on the bench...

Being pass-happy wasn't the problem today. We racked up over 500 yards through the air and wound up in the red zone several times.

Horrible decisions by Drew Brees was the problem today. But I don't think that's gonna be a trend.

Well take away the 4 loses and we are undefeated..... What if's don't mean much. We have had two very winable games against so-so teams. We should be at 8-2, but we are 6-4 and 1/2 game out of the division lead instead of 2 games in the lead.

A question answered with a question.

"Are we an effective run blocking team?"

They run block well enough for 91 yard on 23 carries between 2 backs i know its easy to second guess after the fact but you got to give duece the ball when you are inside the ten

Exactly. And IF we ran the ball more, we don't know what happens. We may just get obvious and let the LBers crowd the box and force us into 3rd and longs. Maybe we get Deuce hurt more - he's still not 100%. What has all this pounding done for KC? Priest Holmes is gone and soon Larry Johnson will be gone. Payton's offense keeps Deuce healthy longer.

I'm not going to comment on the "why aren't we doing this" game. To the point, I comment on what I see. And what I saw was a great gameplan, great playcalling, but horrendous quarterback execution at the absolute worst time. Brees didn't check for the LB playing the hook-zone and got schooled, period. You don't just change your offensive philisophy 180 in the middle of the season, especially when you've established yourself as one of the most potent offenses in the league...

Absolutely! We obviously can move the ball passing, but live by the pass die by the pass. We can't forget that we have a pro-bowl running back in Duece and Reggie has been much better running the past two games. The scoreboard is the only thing that matters. The Saints win games when they run the ball and control the clock.

Well, perhaps with less passing you don't get the picks.

If you look at when our offense is executing best, it is when we are balanced on offense. There is no reason why we can't be. We have the playmakers to be effective in both arenas. When we have been relying heavily on the passing game, it has come back to bite us in the form of turnovers. I don't care how pretty the numbers look, it hasn't done us much good in the W-L column. We need to get back to a balanced offensive attack
