The Bears were far more physical. We got no significant pressure on Grossman. Brees wasn't quite as sharp as normal. The Bears were the better team today. However, I have to mention 2 questionable calls, the Michael Lewis "fumble" and the push off called on Copper at the beginning of the 2nd quarter.

It's tough watching this, but I have to. I hope this is just a stepping stone for this team to only improve in the future. It's a shame we had no leader today.

Go Colts.

If you hadn't noticed, there hasn't been any stellar QB play at all this postseason. And Drew got us to the NFC championship with solid play last week.

But I understand, you need the emotional release right now. Good luck to you.
Don't patronize me. Drew was great before '07 hit. Last week he was decent, didn't make mistakes, but he played like Peyton today. He just couldn't handle the pressure and couldn't move the best offense in football. Most of his incompletions were just poorly-thrown balls. You can't win when you don't protect the football and he didn't do that today. He is a terrific QB and I'm glad we have him, but if you deny he looked like Indy's #18 in January you're high. This team will be good next year, but Brees didn't do much leading today.

But you know what this is going to be a team to be wreckin with next year. These are the types of games that you remember that make a good team. In the short term this is going to put a nasty taste in our mouth, but in the long term this is going to make our team better. When we play the bears next year, I know that this game will be a different outcome.

Good luck next year Saints... you will be back... that is the good thing about the NFC there are three or four good teams and I don't see that changing..
