So calling them put means we want someone new? It's called being realistic. I want them to play like/coach the brees and payton that won the superbowl in 2009. I'm happy that we are 12-2 and we really need to win sunday. I don't feel like we will be beat in the dome. The thing is when the playoffs come it will be a different ball game. There won't be another week to fix this or that.So....what is your fix? New coach and new QB when we are 12-2? HA!
Yup if Brees throws it too high it flies over Arnold's head and right into the Safeties hands for the same result, an Interception.There was a safety waiting back there for anything deeper.
Yeah I don’t care about winning out either, my ideal scenario was win tonight, beat the Steelers next week for the 1st seed, and then we can rest our players in the final match. That would be fine by me.Armstead is still a big problem. Peat is getting his tail whipped without Armstead to protect him. Then we missed Unger most of the game tonight. Ram went out hurt in the Dallas game and was in the tent again tonight.
None of these injuries appear serious, but they are affecting the offense's timing. In the end, we went on the road, for the 3rd straight week, and beat a division rival in a game most teams lose. I just can't complain too much about that.
I'm pretty certain Ginn is back this week. I agree we need him back. I don't even care about winning out. Just get one more W in the next two weeks and get healthy for the playoffs.
All of this is true.His WR aren't playing well. Not only have they dropped crucial balls, but they're constantly out of place at the line. You see Drew have to readjust them. But also, I feel like officiating has changed dramatically on pass interference. And its not just our game, I've noticed it all weekend. I don't see how you can push a WR without looking back and not get called.
It's not only about tonight. The fact is drew brees has not played like drew brees these last few games. No one should be talking to me about receivers. I know our receivers are a huge issue and i've started this time and time again. I was told that a back up o lineman was more important than have ted ginn back. I'm the biggest advocate that we need a legit number 2 receiver.Did you see the great throws he made tonight where the ball was dropped? He was great tonight! The INT was totally on Hill, the drop by Watson was HUGE....the penalties on big completed passes...You must not have watched the same game I saw tonight. Frankly, the patchwork line, especially at center, cause lots of issues on the sacks. Drew forced the 2pt play. Other than that he had no more or less bad throws than he typically has. Probably 2-3.
We can agree to disagree. Anyone with football IQ can see it, has nothing to do with homerism.
In 2009 they played 3 tough games to end the season. 0-3. This year 3 tough games 2-1. Surprisingly against the same 3 teams. We need to go .500 the rest of the season for home field advantage. Quit complaining.So calling them put means we want someone new? It's called being realistic. I want them to play like/coach the brees and payton that won the superbowl in 2009.

People act like criticizing your team makes you less of a fan,no we actually think highly of our team and coaches. I understand that they are human and will make mistakes,but god. I know that brees and payton are better than what i have seen from them.
This is true. Its harder and harder to win the more successful you get. This was their super bowl and they played with all they had. The Steelers still have a fighting chance at the post season, and they're going to play us tough as well. Thankfully we're built to stop big mobile QBs because of Carolina and Newton. Our Oline is going to have to step it up against their pass rush no matter who is playing.This is the type of game you win in order to go to the superb owl. It almost as ugly a game as you can get and we came out on top. I'll take it. We used to lose these all the time.
I believe the offense will get sorted out. One more game and we can rest starters for 2 weeks going into the first playoff game......AT HOME.
Didn't we rest our starters against carolina? I wouldn't count that.In 2009 they played 3 tough games to end the season. 0-3. This year 3 tough games 2-1. Surprisingly against the same 3 teams. We need to go .500 the rest of the season for home field advantage. Quit complaining.
Every week you have to fix this or that. Guys get beat up. You have opponents with different strengths. Coaches have big ideas, then the opposition does something unexpected. To be able to rest and not be constantly working on it is a joke.
What have Payton and Brees done other than win 2 out of three games on the road against 2 teams fighting for playoff lives and a Tampa team that only needs consistency from the QB to be very good.
