Game Thread W14 - Atlanta V New Orleans (1 Viewer)

Interception was a huge momentum swing. Looks like they changed uniforms after that. Maybe we can get a bit of momentum back after that stop for a FG. What the hell was Ryan thinking?

 
Whats up with L. Moore? He is hardly in any of the offensive packages. When he is in he's making the most of it. It looks like he's getting played like a number 3 instead of a number 2 reciever.

 
No hyperbole, but Ryan may be the best rookie I've ever seen. He's unreal.
He's good alright. He made about 3 3rd down conversions on that drive, but I'm more and more impressed with Roddy White. Every time Ryan needs a play made, White makes it.
 
Mr. Payton, in the future, please don't run Bush up the middle for 2 point conversions. Thanks.

 
Why they do anything but hand the ball to Pierre Thomas the rest of the game is a mystery to me. No one can seem to tackle him.

 
Hate to second guess, but I was thinking when we punted that we probably wouldn't see the ball again. I would have liked to have seen us go for it. Ryan was great on 3rd down all day - sure 4th and 5 is a gamble, but I'd rather have done that than depend on a defensive stop. Missed opportunity today.

 
Michael Boley gets the goat award. After the kick return, had an interception IN HIS HANDS and dropped it. This wasn't a tough catch, it was a bonehead drop that would've saved the game for us. The D that won it at SD, totally blew it in NO.

Kudos to the Saint's. Good game plan, good execution, and Pierre Thomas just flat out wore us out. Bush was a big factor as well. We had the chance and this time, the defense let us down.

I thought the Falcons would have gone for it on 4th down. I agree that when they decided to punt it, I didn't think they would get the ball back.

I thought it was the right call at the time. You miss that, and it's lights out. I thought that was the best chance to win, and the D just did not make it happen.I just rewound to the Boley botched interception. Just inexcusable. I mean, the NO WR wasn't even IN THE PICTURE. It literally looked like a screen to Boley. He catches that, two first downs, we win. un-freakin-believable.
 
nice game called and executed by Payton this week. we ran and stuck with it. the saints secondary was being abused but did a decent job against turner. offseason priority for the saints ought to be a safety.

While Reggie didn't make a play on the ball, he certainly was in the picture running next to Boley (are talking about the swing pass in the red zone on 3rd and 1 after which the Saints went for 4th and 1 and got it right?).I thought at the time they should have gone for it on 4th. They hadn't stopped the Saints running game much all day and all of a sudden they asked for a stand. Sorry but Ryan over came holding and false start penalties all day to get first downs while the defense was getting ripped for huge chunks of yards, gotta give it to Ryan and let him make another play since he had been succeeding more often than not today while the opposite was true for the defense.Bonehead call going for that challenge (wouldn't have mattered as the Saints would have run out the clock anyway) when it is near impossible to reverse a run up the middle in a pile since there is almost never an angle. Even if it didn't affect the end, you have to be smart with your challenges and that just wasn't smart. Didn't even wait for time to let anyone upstairs get a look, went off emotion.
 
Was Colston a victim of the offensive game plan or did he just flat out suck again?
He dropped two, maybe three, balls right in the bread basket. Didn't look good to me.I just can't get over my disappointment in the defense. Boley's drop will be running in my head all week. If Bree's had gone in the huddle and CALLED a screen to Boley, it couldn't have been an easier catch. Also, other Falcon fans help me out, I think that's the first big play we've given up on special teams all year. Bad time for it.Ugh, so disappointed, really had an opportunity here. Gotta hold serve against TB next week.

Yes, a bit of an exaggeration on my part with the Boley non-pick, but still, two yards of seperation, easily. Gotta make that catch. While you're correct in you assessment of our ability to stop them, if I'm the coach, I HAVE to be able to rely on my D to make a stop. I can't base a a 4th and five decision on that. Everyone in that zip code knew what the Saint's would do, and we couldn't stop them. Inexcusable.Our off-season program must be focused on a obtaining a dominating D Tackle.

Honestly I'm not sure the defense did know what to expect. The Saints are not a team that shies away from being cute even when they should just keep it simple. Who knew if the Saints would have faith in their running game or call a play action pass, screen pass, etc. I don't think the defense could completely sit on the run especially on first down when they were probably hugely concerned with a play action pass. Once they got the huge run on first you knew they would run but stopping a yard for a first is always hard knowing it is coming or not. The defense is expected to make a stop there though but with the Saints coming in with not the strongest running game and a great passing game, I don't think the defense was able to sit on run completely on the first down.

You could be right. And, of course, we'll never know. But, at the time, I agreed with the decision. :mellow: In either case, the one fact in my mind is, the defense lost this game, however it was that we got there.
