The Monarch Posted December 27, 2011 Share Posted December 27, 2011 Drew Brees routinely had 5 + seconds to get rid of the ball. He would drop back, scan the field on 3rd and long, and hit someone 30 yards down the field.Conversely, Ryan had little protection. Most glaringly, I'm thinking of the 3rd down play where they only sent three and still got to Matt before he could throw a quick out. Just sad.Yes, the officiating was terrible and destroyed our momentum. And yes, we couldn't stop their run game. But at the end of the day, it was yet again our inability to get pressure in 3rd down situations, and our inability to protect in 3rd down situations, that decided the game.
