Right. Correct a few things. Clean up some mistakes Refine some techniques. We can just put that on a loop and replay it all season....

To be fair, a slight adjustment on four or five plays would have easily been the difference between the preferred outcome and what actually occurred.

This reminds me of the Mora "Coulda, woulda, shoulda" remark. At some point, you stop making excuses and execute in critical situations. How many years has it been since the Saints could do that?

Sounds like the usual nothing. Brees and some of the other O players must be really nice guys to not gripe about the awful D play, year after year after year after year.

The problem is that we have been living for 3 years now with the same problem.

Don't get me wrong, l think we have a way better team then last year, but a couple of coaching decisions influenced the final result of this game.

I'm speaking more to on field issues. Like Crawley not turning his head around on a few Crabtree completions. Or Craig Robinson getting turned around by the pulling guard on the 75 yard run. Or Lutz pulling the long kicks slightly left. Or Murphy not reading his blocks correctly on returns.

As for coaching decisions, the timeout after the fumble was crucial, but I'm not sure what better recourse was afforded Payton there. Otherwise, I'm also not sure what better the staff could've done to gain the edge on Oakland.


It seems like we are forgetting that we weren't playing South Texas A&M State at Kingsville here. This is a top level offense with Pro Bowl level receivers and a pretty great young quarterback that shredded the defense. They did just as much to win this game as the Saints did to lose it. The deserve a much larger share of credit than we are giving them.

Speaking of that timeout, what on earth? The refs wouldn't spot the ball, what were we supposed to do? Then they had an on field conference for about 10 minutes while the clock continued to countdown....this is absolutely ridiculous.

We were in hurry up, hurry up and spot the damn ball you stupid refs!!!
