Hard to be to upset about losing to KC, they are a legit team but it's just frustrating because I felt the Saints should have won. I give them props for the effort especially on defense. Given how banged up they are I felt they played hard with the exception of Byrd. The only problem is this team isn't quite good enough to overcome multiple mistakes. The pick 6 swerved the momentum and the Ingram fumble was a killer turnover that pretty much sealed their fate. The Fairley penalty was indeed foolish and costly but I'm not mad at him. The man just lost his mother and it was a miracle he even played. Hopefully this loss will be another painful experience in ultimately making the team better.

Yeah we turned the ball over way too much today. You can't turn the ball over like that and expect to win.

The Saints were in that game when many weren't giving them a chance. We are getting some key players back soon, I can't wait to see Rankins, Breaux locking down one side. It's not as bad as people think

I thought the Fairly penalty was a terrible call. Looked like Ware was holding onto him and wouldn't let him go. Probably the reason Fairly slung him around like he did. And besides, I've seen worse plays than that. But I agree....I thought the team played with good effort and never gave up. I am sick of seeing refs making ridiculous calls at the end of games that have a direct effect on the outcome.

I think we are on the right track... We are in a rebuilding year, yet remaining competitive despite all of the injuries.

It's becoming more and more obvious tge game is being controlled by Vegas to keep the point spread in line.

I actually thought we would win this game until Ingram fumbled.
I was very hopeful before the fumble. But that shows the lack of talent and depth. We have to play near perfect ball to win with his team. The Pick-6 was killer as was the fumble as was the Fairely penalty.

This may be the best Saints offense ever, but the defense is so weak and injured, we have to play flawless to win on the road.

To my untrained eye, it looked like Ware was holding him and he tried to get him off of him but when he did he flew a little faster than he expected, because of the size difference. He instantly realized this and he tried to catch him but when he did he lost his balance and fell also. Personally I gave him a pass because of this but unfortunately I'm not the referee.

You're right, he slung him around but held on to him. It was a BS call !
