Tl;dr - defense still sucks and I'm venting.

Same old, same old. Unless the offense scores over 35, we lose.

What a complete and total collapse in the second half. We shouldn't have to hope for a stop on a blown PI call at the end. We gave up, what, 24 points in the second half? Then to top it off, they show no respect for the defense (hell, why should they?), go for, and convert a 2-pointer to win.

I bought into some of the training camp hype that the defense would improve. They did. For a half.

Sadly, I'm not shocked. Its just what we've gotten used to.

saw the same last year.
last year: the game tied at the half, slightly ahead, or slightly behind = complete collapse in the second half.

the team is not a second half team and this year it seems like nothing changed

I can't stand this feeling. I feel bad for Drew. We have one of the best in the most important position in football and we still can't win cause we can't field a half decent defense. It's gotta be the worst to know that you're powerless cause your defense will consistently let you down.

Two field goals. He missed two, and had a chip-shot batted when he kicked a line drive on a 20 yard field goal.

The defense fell asleep in the forth quarter, to the tune of 22 points ! Same damn crap as last year. It was amazing to watch the defensive backfield run around in a confusing daze,like a bunch of college rookies. It was awful to watch.

The Raiders got the Saints right where they wanted em. Down by 14 points means one dimensional forced to throw. Doom for the Saints!

Remember the years under Payton when we NEVER lost a game we were winning at halftime. With this D, that sense of security is long gone.
