They caught only 4 of 16 targets last night. The TEs caught 4 of 4 targets of course Trautman had that horrible fumble, Kamara of 10 of 11.

I don't think any team has in last 20 years has won a game where the recieving corp caught 4 passes. The fact against Seattle's horrible secondary that they caught only 4 passes highlights how bad this group truly is.

I really don't think Seattle's defense is as bad as it's being made out to be, honestly. Look at their schedule, there's some heavy-hitters in there. AJ Brown/Julio Jones/Derrick Henry, Justin Jefferson/Adam Thielen, Deebo Samuel/Kittle (+Division game), Kupp/Woods/Jackson/Jefferson. Those guys (and coaches, in McVay's case) are going to get theirs. Just like DK did tonight (even if it was OPI).

I think those number are just slightly skewed in the same way the Saints numbers are defensively (Don't come at me, just stating that the Saint's haven't exactly played explosive offenses. You could argue that Carolina and NY were, but we all saw the result of those games.). They're probably a bit better than the numbers say they are. That said, I haven't watch any Seahawks games since we played them last (and was immediately reminded why. That entire team lack class.), so I'm just going by stats.

Sound argument there.

Still people put it on Jameis who actually had a pretty good game.

Great decisions! No turnovers from his side. Quick released when necessary

He ran the ball very smart when he had to!

Considering the weather and our horrible receiving corps, Jameis did a tremendous job under center

The drops were horrible. One of worse games I’ve seen in years. Got to be something we work on. If we pull that this week, we will be in trouble!

Doesn't anyone consider the weather conditions last night as a factor for the passing game? It constantly rained through the entire game. Sometimes it was pouring. THAT has to come into play. The game plan going into this game was to RUN THE BALL because of the weather. Haters will be haters. Those are the same people that blasted Winston before the season began about his interception ratio. Now that that can't be addressed, they need to complain about something else.

Look, every game is different and the elements of each game has to be factored in for the outcome of the game. The Saints are 4-2, should be 5-1, but sh*t happens. This team is constantly getting better each week. The kicker last night did a phenomenal job in those wet conditions. Gilikin was great again. The defense, with the exception of one play was outstanding. The Saints are still getting players back from IR which will make this team even better.

When Thomas comes back, that will make our offense unstoppable. Our second and third receivers will stand out better because they will not have the #1 CB on them anymore, which will create better passing zones. CGM will make this receiving corp that much better. Callaway will be a true #2 receiver, which is what he really is. And that will open up the lanes for the TE and Kamara.

Oyemata coming back will only help a defense that has already been lights out most of the year. Even if this team were to go 14-3, the haters will still be out there complaining about something. Please just enjoy the win.

The rain played a factor but the receiving Corp has been bad all year. So it’s tough to blame it on the rain…yeah yeah.

The defense is good and so is the punter.

Don’t count the CGM egg until it hatches.

Saints can run the ball , and stop the run, and play elite defense...That's a recipe for a playoff spot and maybe a deep run. Yea we need better receivers, but that will come. Missing Taysom and Deonte last night didnt help either.

And you are right, about not knowing what Mike Thomas will return. Just keeping my fingers crossed that it is our record breaking wide receiver and not the injured wide receiver that returns.

💯 agree. Could this group on the field at WR be the worst in NFL history? They’re the worst I’ve seen in my 40 years as a Saints fan. Even back to the Carl Smith days.

There is no doubt they are the worst. We knew this going in. We can also reasonably assume that very few will be on an nfl roster at this time next years.
