The NFL isn't college football, there are no style points, a win is a win.
49er's probably would have won if Clement doesn't fumble. Cowboy's probably win if Williams holds on. Saint's would have won if Hartley makes a chip shot. Let's have cake...
the score with atl will be settled in a few weeks.
should clear right up in a few days.
When did our fanbase lose its cajones?
.......then so does Atlanta's win against San Francisco. I have always been proud of how intelligent Saints fans are compared to the rest of the NFL fanbase, particularly the members of this site. However, I can just see a select few here justifying why Atlanta should have one or two less wins than they do, while pointing to Nate Clement's fumble as a "gift" that Atlanta did not deserve. Roddy White ran down Clements and ripped that ball out with purpose just like Jenkins did yesterday, and both teams similarly went down the field for the winning score. Just saying - you can't have your cake and eat it too.
Now I'm going to go throw up for defending a Failcon win, but it will at least help me feel better about our win yesterday. To be completely honest, I have had a tough time not feeling like it was a loss. The Saints should have run that team out of their own building, but we let off the gas pedal way too early - something Sean Payton needs to work on as a head coach. When your foot is squarely against the back of their neck, and their teeth are flush against the concrete, you must complete the curb-stomp.
Sorry, but if you are trying to say the Atlanta strip and Jenkins strip are comparable then you fail. Yeah, they were both strips and they were near the end of the game but that's about where it ends.
Williams should have been trying to score.
The SF player should have just taken a knee and let his offense run out the clock.
If you feel like yesterday was a loss then that is entirely on you. I don't know what it takes to make some people happy, but I am certainly not inclined to join you in your misery.
Neg rep the guy all you want, but he's right. A gritty Atlanta team won a game they should have lost, and a gritty Saints team won a game they should have lost. The difference is that Atlanta has several of those wins this season, like the first game against us.
