For 2015 - If we go into Halftime losing, we are terrible. When we have the lead at the end of the 1st Quarter, we are 7-0!
“+ Points” means the Saints are winning by that amount of points.
“- Points” means the Saints are losing by that amount of points.


In 2015, the Saints only won 2 games when “Losing at Halftime.” We lost 78% of the time

Loss – Cardinals, 1st Quarter = halftime = -4 Points
Loss – Tampa, 1st Quarter = halftime = -3 Points
Loss – Carolina, 1st Quarter = +4 points; halftime = 0 Points
Loss – Eagles, 1st Quarter = halftime = -3 Points
Loss – Titans, 1st Quarter = halftime = +4 Points
Loss – Skins, 1st Quarter = -halftime = -13 Points
Loss – Houston, 1st Quarter = halftime = -8 Points
Loss – Carolina, 1st Quarter = halftime = +3 Points
Loss – Lions, 1st Quarter = -halftime = -17 Points

In 2015, When “Leading after the 1st Quarter,” the Saints were 7-0 or we Won 100% of the time

Win – Cowgirls, 1st Quarter = +4 points
Win – Falcons, 1st Quarter = +14 points
Win – Colts, 1st Quarter = +7 points
Win – Giants, 1st Quarter = +7 points
Win – Tampa, 1st Quarter = +7 points
Win – Jags, 1st Quarter = +14 points
Win – Falcons, 1st Quarter = +4 points

It's a pretty simple formula for us. Jump out to a 1st quarter lead and we win - 100%. Fall behind at halftime and we lose 78% of the time

What do we need to do differently to jump out in front in Q1 and hold onto that lead at Halftime. A very surprising stat is that in the majority of games last year, the defense held the opponents in losses to 14 points or below at halftime. The offense started very slow in the majority of losses.

Those are some interesting stats. The offense has been overlooked as a problem, but they did have their struggles last year; and the defense wasn't strong enough to bail them out.

If we can get back to 2009 form (I know it'll be hard) but we'll be good to go. That year we jumped out to major leads, and ran down the clock in the 4th and somtimes 3rd quarter.

Why post this now? Can't we bask in Drew's extension before delving into football factors?

That is interesting. I don't know if I'd refer to it as a "Major Reason for Saints Winning and Losing in 2015" but interesting nonetheless.

This is a good topic. I noticed last year that the team was not a 2nd half team. I'm not sure why. The other team made adjustments? The defense lacked experience? The defense ran out of gas? Not really sure

Looks like we also need to play bad teams to win that's what stand out to me.

That's a good point. If we had beaten the other 3 teams with losing records we would have made the playoffs.

It looks like we didn't beat a team with a winning record. That Titan loss was brutal. Hopefully this year we go 8-0 in the Dome!

"There is no stat as powerful as the opinion of MSUsousaphone's eyes."

- Franklin Delano Roosevelt

That really happened.

I kid. I know nothing.

But yeah, the eye test shows that it was the slow starts that killed us. There were even a few games (just a few) where the defense would start out kind of like an NFL caliber D....but then after a few 3nOuts and a TO or two and BLAM....worst D ever witnessed. Most games the D was awful AND the offense started slow. It would heat up at the end to pad stats that other posters use to show the O was still elite.

We started out avging 19 ppg... We didn't need an NFL caliber defense to win. We need to have a top 5 defense to hold up that abysmal offensive output

Are we gonna blame the defense for this when their first halfs and esp first Qs were better?
