I know there are a lot of eternal optimists out there but we as fans have to face the music...this team is just a step or two behind what it takes to truly contend for anything worthwhile. The Defense is a perfect example...how do you come off a performance where you only give up 9 points on the road and then follow it up by allowing 5 straight TDs???? Are you kidding me????????? Special Teams???? What a joke...if it wasn't for Lutz hitting a 57 yarder right before halftime I would say why even have a special teams unit...The only noteworthy stop the Defense got was negated by a stupid fluky play that virtually gave Atlanta 7 points...it's like the Steve Gleason play in reverse..and I think that was the theme for the night..REVERSE!!!! This team seems to be going backwards right when they keep saying they're right "there" Give me a break...It's so frustrating to be a Saints fan right now....either we're getting screwed by the refs, or the defense is just leaky giving away yards and points, or our special teams proves to be anything but special....The Offense did all they could I guess but I have to question one crucial moment in the game...We're down 45-32...Brees gets the team in the redzone with I believe more than 7 minutes to play......but yet what do we do...continue to pass the ball when Atlanta was giving up yards up the middle via draw plays all night...Ingram was killing it....when you're so pass happy in the redzone that's how those silly pick 6's happen...You guys can red thumb me, flame me or whatever...I don't care!!! I know what I saw and it could've been a win but we're just not "there" yet and I don't know when this team will ever get "there"
