Kamara- 17 touches, 43 yards, 1 fumble loss- 2.5 yards per touch

Taysom- 6 touches, 25 yards, 4.1 yards per touch. 0/1 passing

Brees- 29/40, 349 yards, 5 TD. 1 carry, 1 yard, 1 TD

Murray- 9 touches, 94 yards. 10.5 yards per touch


Don't get me wrong, I adore Taysom Hill but when Brees comes out on fire DEAR GOD please do not put Hill in at QB.

Kamara should be used as nothing more than a decoy and as a 3rd down back moving forward. Until we can scare defenses with something other than Michael Thomas, Kamara is just getting too much attention and is unable to overcome that.



With all that said. Hell of an offensive performance.


That game falls squarely on the defense. The officiating had a little run of bad calls but all in all, it was the least we got screwed this season.

Kamara as flat out awful today. People can come up with all the excuses in the world for him but LM is making his touches work. Why can't AK?

SP has lost his mind with how he's using LM. Our two best games all year where when LM started and got back to back 100+ yard games.

Does anyone actually think it’s a good idea to put hill in as QB when Brees is operating like he was today? Serious question btw. What is the argument for that? I know you want to show different looks but you can do that with number 9 behind center.

It's an unpopular opinion, but the Taysom plays are forking stupid unless Brees is struggling and we need to shake things up.

You have one of the GOAT QBs under center. No play with Taysom hill has a higher chance of getting a first down than Brees throwing the ball.

I think our inability to stretch the field is hurting Kamara a lot. Losing cook in the first half did not help.
I think it has a lot to do with NFL defenses adjusting to the NFL being a passing league and treating Kamara as a WR because he rarely ever gets matched up on LB's anymore.

It’s been a passing league for his whole career tho. This year if i had to put my finger on what’s different, I’d say health and teams not afraid to play a little closer to the LOS against us.

Loss is on the coaching both sides of the ball. Payton is too arrogant and gambles too much...n needs humbling.
1.)LM needs to run the ball more
2.)Payton had no reason to go for two. Too much of a gambler for me.
3.)DA defensive secondary sucks...Why have we stood pat with it.
4.)Coaches were outcoached.
5.) If the head coach is undisciplined with his playcalling how can expect the team to disciplined.?

Some of you need to stop with the silly comments. Alvin is one of the best backs in the league, Murray dled better because the niner’s focus was on shutting Alvin down. Ingram was As great as Alvin, so the both did well, if Murray was on his game, every game, then they couldn’t shadow Kimura all the time. Saints “O” played great, trust me the TH incomplete pass didn’t cost us because Drew didn’t throw it. It’s because of the extremely obvious pass interference call (and not the only one), not called (another message by the NFL refs union, smacking Sean for his part in the rule change). In case you chuckleheads didn’t notice, our “O” put up 45 points against arguably one of the best (if not the best), Defense maybe in the league, and TH’s 2.6 rushing average, as well as the critical 4 Th down pick up, and 12 yard reception helped, it didn’t hurt. It wouldn’t have been better replaced by Drew’s 1 yard run.

Oh, and stop with the Hill Bashing, neither Drew nor Teddy’s jobs are in danger because of Hill. He is a great athlete, and if you studied his college career at all you’d realize he was a great quarterback dispite his injuries, besides, the idiots on the “TH salary contract forum” on Nov 3, 2019 who don’t think any NFL team will want him to QB some of these sorry teams in the league because he’ll be 30, are smoking crack. (Hold off on reply’s to the TH comments until the contracts done, you’ll just make your self look foolish.)

Idk what it’ll take for SP to realize it, but he has to realize it soon. LM has to get more touches. I’m wondering if LM isn’t doing something right during the week to not be utilized come gameday.

I love finding ways to nitpick the usage of kamara and taysom hill when we score 46 points
