Given the way the season started, I believe we were blessed to get to 13-3. We finished tied for our best regular season record. Also, with all the injuries, you have to wonder how DOMINANT we could have been. Oh, well...

To me, the most disappointing things about our season were:

1a. Brees lack of arm strength for the deep ball, and

1b. Finishing among the BEST in fewest turnovers, yet laying an egg with 2 giveaways in the Divisional round. We beat Minny, and I believe we'd be playing this weekend.

Would, coulda, shoulda... yeah, I know.

End of the season when we missed a different fate by mere inches.

Followed by TE’s.

The 4th and 2 conversion by Kittle to beat us and send us to our impending doom. Reminded me of the TE that broke my heart in 2011. Vernon.

The TE that officially ended our season. Again with about 2 yards to go.Kyle Rudolph.

You think Minnesota was the obstacle in our way of the Super Bowl?

"If we could have only gotten past that unbeatable Minnesota team....."

That's laughable.
Minny was "an obstacle," not the obstacle.

I don't think it's laughable. We seemed to be looking forward to Green Bay; we came out flat.

Let me ask you this: Had we made it to the GB game, would you have said we had NO CHANCE? And taking it a step further... would you have written us off for having a chance to beat the 49'ers?

Laughable? :jpshakehead:

Losing to the falcons was huge and ended up costing us a bye.
Every season we don't beat them twice is a failure.
Falcons beat the 49ers so losing to the 49ers cost us more.

Mine:

1. Vikings loss
2. 49ers loss
3. Emmanuel Sanders (we should have went for him and gotten him, we would be playing tomorrow)

The day that both Rankins and Davenport went on IR I knew we had lost our opportunity to win a ring this year. Even if we had gotten past Minnesota, we weren't getting anywhere without the dominant pass rush we had all season long. It was carrying our defense and it was masking some real liabilities in the back 7. They were both also really good against the run.
Sums it up for me. Everything was going as well as could be expected until those injuries. We lost our strong rotation of defensive linemen when they went out. Keeping defensive linemen fresh is very, very important, especially at the end of games.

Totally agree with Loose....The injuries....when both Rankins and Davenport were put on IR I knew our chances of contending were not good. I did not expect our OL to shat the bed against Minny though...

Oh and Kirkwood out all year really bummed me out....

Stop me if you've heard this one before...

Giving up on the RUN!!!

(And, surprise, surprise, the DEFENSE not doing their job - esp at the end of games.)

ETA: I'm getting tired of the Saints D being the Posters Boys immemorial for FAILED PLAYS: Beast Mode, Minny Miracle, Kittle Kalamity Kanter

Definitely losing to the Vikings AT HOME!!! It would have been easier to accept losing on the road to GB or San Fran.

1) The team coming out completely unprepared and flat against Atlanta after the by week.

2) The team having no answer to stop a 49er offense after having 10 days to prepare.

3) The team coming out completely unprepared and flat against the Vikings int the Wildcard playoff game...at home.

See a pattern here?
I'm with him. Consistency.

1-They should have forced Rankins to rest some more before returning.

2-They didnt run the ball enough. Murray was effective at times but we would go away from him.

3-It should be obvious by now that our guys can’t play the entire season playing at the current pace. Coaches need to have our playmakers on snap counts.

4-Cut ties with PJ Williams, Ginn, AJ Klein (the Vikings schemed Klein all game long) he was a backup in Carolina for a reason, Robertson or Teo should have played instead.

5-Besides Davis no one on defense really brings the passion, fire , energy every game. I’m not saying there is no effort, it’s just that Davis stands out week in and week out.
Just look at how TH plays on offense...he’s looking for contact, he’s looking to make the play. We need more of this in all 3 phases.

6- Niners game was our super bowl and we were not prepared. 48 points in the Dome, how many times has that happened in the last 15 years?

40+ points at home since 2004
2012 - 2
2014 - 1
2015 - 3
2016 - 1
2018 - 1
2019 - 1
