Just a complete choke job all around by Drew and the offense.

The defense did its part. But Brees lost this game (even though receivers did him no favors).

Too much was on the line to choke away a game like this. Just a terrible way to end any realistic shot at a special season.

Dallas was also back to back TNF.

We did not respond, they did.
True, but Dallas does this every season. They're used to it. Not to mention both of their Thursday games were at home. If the Saints had last night's game at home, I have no doubt the outcome would have been different.

That said, this was a fluke performance by the offense, it happens. They'll be fine.

If the Saints are going to win a championship, I don't want to see Dallas again. They are a matchup nightmare. I don't care about getting even with a 7-5 team.
I absolutely want to see Dallas again. We play that game 100 times and we win 99 of them. That was a fluke.

Because it only takes one game to ruin the whole season. Sarcasm off

You need to go back to your Madden team. Play 50 seasons on rookie level, enjoy all those championships with your quarterback who throws for 7k a year, and leave reality to the rest of us.

Reality is that we need HFA to win the NFC, IMO. We threw it away, not only for the moment but also any realistic shot of getting it back.

Ha! Nah, I still support this team and will root for them.

But reason says last night drastically lowered our chances of winning a Super Bowl.
No, it doesn't. We are still division leaders, have the #2 seed, and will be in the playoffs. Reason suggests the opposite.

History overwhelmingly supports us not winning the Super Bowl, so it's not that far-fetched to suggest that any missteps we make along the way might further lessen our chances.
