That's the whole issue. They aren't out of it.

This wasn't just losing to a 3-5 team. This was losing to our most hated rival, and giving them a chance to get back in the hunt. Seriously. The NFC is wide open. There is a huge difference in 3-6 and 4 and 5.

There were so many reasons to step on their throat, and dominate a weaker team. But Smitty got scared and had to stick to the script.

I think they are, they would have to go 7-0 to be 11-5, 6-1 to be 10-6 and that isn't gonna happen with their defense.

Green Bay and New England have done it with bad defenses and far worse running games.

It's more than just winning a game. It's about keeping a team that has been a thorn in our side out of our way come playoff time. If the Saints make it to the playoffs at 9-7, and wreak havoc, we will all look back at this game.

This was the single most important regular season game of the year. We gave it away as if it was just an inevitable loss that needed to happen. This team has had plenty of "moral victories" to learn from. This loss makes me doubt this team for the first time this season. We refuse to address our most obvious issues until it's too late.

Last year we got blown out in New Orleans, this year we nearly won the game. I think you're putting too much emphasis on this one game. Defense should play much better with a healthy spoon and next time we play them, we're not gonna be running Turner up the middle 15 times.

I was totally pissed right after the game. We left plays out on the field. I think that is what got most of us fans out of whack. But, now that I have time to think about it, I don't think we did a bad job in this game. Of course they're reasons for concern. None the less, here is my take.

A lot of fans had us splitting with the Saints before the season. They still have a great offense.

The NFL is all about matchups. You see it every week when teams get upset. ex. Miami vs Tn today. Minn has been back sliding and they took it to the hot Lions today.-----> edited part. Saints have always matched up against us good. The Bucs, even in their off years, match up good against the Saints and We have had the Bucs number for the past few years. They're some hiccups here and there in all these match ups. But I believe the next game will be different with a healthy spoon and a game with our coordinators to make adjustments to this game plan. Nolan did do a great job making some adjustments at the half imo.

With a Chicago loss, we are still in control of our own destiny.

It blows that we let this one get away.

We definitely have to fix our run game. Offense and Defense. Our Defense tried to cover everything on every play today. We did not blitz much. The aggressiveness that we have came to love out of our Defense has been slipping the past few weeks. With our Offense we should be playing aggressive on that side of the ball. We can recover from a big play.

This isn't the end of the world and I think we will adjust and we will see great improvement in 18 days on the national stage. We will show the world why we still have the best record in the league.

We didn't do the things that we did against Manning on Brees, which I can't really wrap my head around. Where is Nolan's walk around def?

None the less, our boys didn't quit today. We were 2 or 3 plays away from winning. Sometimes they fall our way(Carolina game) and sometimes they don't like today.
