I know we're still upset over the Saints complete no show today... but we can get right real real fast

obviously a Seattle win over SF tomorrow night would be huge

if that happens...

the Saints take care of business at Tampa (they better following the no show today)

Green Bay is at San Francisco next Sunday afternoon... so 1 of those 2 teams definitely takes a L next week

we take care of our business... we'll be right back where we were before today's absolute flub

Good points, but how does a team play SOOOO BAD at home one week and step it up against a division rival, away, the next week.
Its only ONE loss, but it was the way they lost that has gotta be VERY concerning

TB is a really bad matchup for us defensively, especially with Lattimore out. And on the other side of the ball, they make you one-dimensional. And we saw what happens today when we’re one dimensional.

I admire your positivity. Even after the game I said the gameplanning coaching and effort would improve, especially the run defense was not us today at all. One area I am worried about talk me up regarding the WR core, seems theres a blueprint out there to shift coverage to CGM and play a short field worked like a charm for a porous ATL defense that couldn't stop anyone and had their number one corner on the bench. So yeah make me feel better about that going forward who steps up?

Look in the mirror and stop worrying about everyone else.

I think we underestimated how the falcons moving Morris back to coaching the secondary would impact things. Also the falcons changed their defensive playcaller and kept it quiet until today. You could tell that the offense was caught off guard by what they were seeing.

I expect a better performance when we play them on thanksgiving. Whether we beat them or not is another matter.

I have looked in the mirror... this is literally the 1st time the Saints have had a complete and utter failure on both sides of the ball... and I don't expect it to happen again

yes the Peat & Lattimore injuries are concerning and I hope neither misses any time

but we HAVE to be able to beat Tampa

Expectations are like weather predictions, I admire your optimism but this is not the first time we have laid an egg. Maybe this season but it does happen from time to time.
