So that was the season that was. 16 and done with a bunch of team and personal records in the locker. What I love about it is the Madden like numbers that I used to post as a kid on a console now playing out in real life. I mean its just unbelievable right down to the last game of the regular season and the most offensive yards in a game in team history! Here let's hand it off to 4th back Chris

Let me start by answering the latter question first.
Is it Matt Ryan?
Sure he's ugly as sin but hey so are most folk east of the Georgia line.
Is it THE Tony Gonzalez?
He of the trumped up self agrandized opinion whence he says his name in the starting Atlanta O players on TV?
Nah he's OK, he at least is good, played most of his career at the worst team in League history and deserves some

It's primetime TV and the nation is tuning in to watch a game from the Super Dome (I'm not calling it that sponsored thing ever). The analysts are on the mic and having just read up on the Saints they are all set to trot out a set of boringly predictable dross to try and clue up a nation. Here we yawn go:

A couple of years back, during our Super Bowl winning campaign, I used to flippantly joke that David Thomas was a future Hall of Famer. I did this from a sense of Saints luxury. Drew Brees seemed to have so many weapons at his disposal that anytime the ball made its way to Thomas I felt the guy needed an honorary beef up so marginalised was he from recognition.
Well now that same sense of

So the time has come, it's finally down to the real business, it's finally THE FALCONS GAME.
And what a game we have in store. A Saints win and we still have a decent chance of playing at least one game at home in the playoffs. A Saints loss and we're in trouble with the remaining schedule plus it will SUCK big balls to lose to the Spandex wearers.
So I have 5 tips to share with the team this
10/30/2011 17:37:00 PM
Well what can I say about that? The Saints couldn't run the ball against the most porous run defense in the league (not that that's a surprise given how uterally useless we've been all season at opening holes) and now they can't pass protect. It all comes from up front and we were hopeless.
It's one of the fundamentals of football. You run the ball to set up play action. We can't run the ball

I've waited all week to watch this game. I am out of the country and had to wait until it became available online. I've just watched it and I am pissed.
Why'd the Saints lose?
Was it because of the turnovers? Sure it was a big factor but it's not the rotten apple at the core of the problem.
Was it the needless penalties? Again they didn't help but they could have been over come.
Was it Sean

James, Jeff and Mike from the Times-Picayune talk about how the Saints D will be go after the Panthers QB Cam Newton. I say get a nice crisp Harper and Jenkins double Safety blitz hit early doors and watch him question what he's doing on the field.

We've waited a while but finally the Saints brought their A game on all sides of the ball. We looked more hungry than the Bears overall in fact.
On the D side we pursued harder, gang tackled, did an excellent job in man coverage (Jabari Greer outstanding!) and got penetration up front. 6 sacks was a telling end statistic.
On the O side I thought the line did an incredible job of keeping the

Do you remember those halcyon days when the Saints were total garbage and couldn't string a scoring drive together if Sugar Ray Robinson threatened to beat every last one of them to a pulp?

Guess who they are? One is a 6-6 TE with electric speed and all the attributes to be a stand out for years to come. The other is the next Emmitt Smith and future Saints Hall of Famer (hyperbowl - what hyperbowl?).

We go into the second half of the season in great shape. Not only do we have a winning record despite playing some patchy football we also have a much improved Defense.
In particular I'm loving the play of Roman Harper. His hustle to the ball, tackl

Boy was it good to watch last Sundays performance. It was great to see the offense finally clicking into gear and getting the ball moving effectively.

It appears some people I know have very short memories. Yes Garrett Hartley missed a field goal in over time but why were we even in that position in the first place?
Could it be that we couldn't run the ball yet again?
Could it be that we couldn't
