After getting some sleep Im leaning toward the idea that yesterdays game was a total fluke. After all didn't we beat the Bears something like 49-7 in the 2003 opener only to go 7-9 for the season?
My point is, just like fluke wins...there are weird losses. I'm hoping (in my little niner homer heart) that this was one of them and we just got a wake up call.
Beating the saints would be huge.
agreed, beating the damn saints will let me forget this crap. i honestly know that wasnt our team out there yesterday.
No, unfortunately that was our team out there. That's been our team for the last 4 years; nothing has changed. We are going to get smoked by the Saints; say hello to 0-2. Think we can cover their receivers? What's Brees going to do to us with all that time. Again, people, with the koolaid, lay off it. Again and again, every year. Until we make some major changes, status quo.
