Looking at the way Brees was pin-pointing his passes before the injury, I'm positive the Saints would have taken this game. The season will depend on the seriousness of Drew's thumb injury.
But the Rams aren't the class of the NFC by any means. The Saints really played poorly today after Brees went down.
The offensive play really wore down the defense. The officiating had a tremendous impact on the offense though.

There was the SNAFU that took away a TD, but the real referee telling tale was when TQ Smith gets his helmet ripped off - no call. Next play a good pickup by Bridgewater on a scramble and, of course, a "hold" on Clapp that was very lame, especially in comparison to the muggings that Cam Jordan endured. There was no way this game was going to be close.

The backup job is Bridgewaters. He will get a few games at least to prove he can do it. So yall best just get ready for it.

Dude, I could not agree more and think I made the same comments earlier in the thread (can't remember bc I didn't post even half of what I thought).

One thing I've gotta mention though that I don't think has gotten enough attention in the #2 QB debate is TB's apparent inability to scramble/run the ball like he did pre-injury (which is the QB we traded for) like he did in his "Pro Bowl" season while Hill has shown he can not only go through his progressions but also tuck it and pick up substantial yardage when he does.

I just went and had a jam session on the drums to literally beat out the frustration of that game. Took me like 11 tries to make this an error free reply, of course. (13 now with that last sentence - heck, 15 if I can finish this parenthetical without screwing up...)

Why? They're a good team.
So...I guess your take seems to be that my comment came about because I think the Rams are a bad team. Don't you think it would be more objective to consider there could be reasons for an individual to dislike a certain team, other than them having an untalented roster?
I must say I find the idea rather alien that just because a given team is "good" that we're all meant to like them. I guess people have different ideas of what fandom should look like. What else can I tell you?

That's why I asked. Wanted to know your take.
