Erase if posted elsewhere. To me, play of the game was the spike ball before the half. Anyone get mad like me and wonder why Brees moved over Kamara. Tackle was uncovered. Would of been illegal formation and 10 second runoff which would of resulted in halftime. Would of wiped off 7 points.

That was huge! He’s so calm under pressure.

We have a lot to fix coming out of this game, but at least I don't hear all the calls for Drew's head this week. Solid game by our QB.
I don't want Drew's head. I really just question how sustainable 14 play drives are and relying on physics-defying joystick plays by Kamara is. I think all this trickery gets snuffed out in the playoffs again.

If Armstead were healthy, Drew would have had an even bigger game today. He played well above average without perhaps his best O lineman (although Ram has probably ascended to that spot now) and his two starting receivers. Unreal.
Not to mention he doesn't get blindsided and fumble. That play made the game closer than it should have been.

That‘s where the defense comes in. We shouldn’t have to rely on Brees or Kamara’s heroics every game.

Scoring is up 16% this season opposed to the same period last season. I don't think you guys realize how impressive holding a team to 24 points is this season....

What more do you expect?
I expect us to not give up 70 yard bombs on blown coverages and I expect us to make textbook tackles. Is that too much to ask?

Oh and if Santa is really feeling nice in these pandemic times I wish we could stop making boneheaded PI penalties.

1 out of 32 QBs would have made that call. I didn't realize what was happening live.

You honestly think that was an impressive performance by the defense today?
No. It was just good enough. Which is all you can ask for in 2020. It wasn't horrible, it wasn't great.

16% is a crazy increase in scoring without any major rule changes to explain it away. You think firing DA is the solution?

I was telling my cousin last night....that play has to make you realize how much Brees will be missed when he's gone. Sure his arm may not be what it once was but his control of the line of scrimmage, leadership and mental acumen is a big reason the Saints are 4-2 instead of 2-4.
