It took 3 "elite" teams ALL 60 minutes to put us away AFTER we basically GIFT WRAPPED the game for them.
The Superbowl Champion Saints had 10 days to get ready for us and they were at full strength (Bush and Thomas were healthy) and we had 5 Turnovers!!! 2 inside their 30 yard line, 1 inside their 5 yard line, a safety and a muffed punt.............. lost by 3 on a last second FG
IN ATL, the best team in the NFC and we led in that game for 59 minutes and 57 seconds and had 2 offensive turnovers inside their territory and Nate's fumble at their 7 YARD LINE.... lost by 2 on a last second FG
PHI came to town and although it took some embarrassment on National TV to get a response out of Alex, He still responded with two quick strike TD's when we needed them. We had 5 Turnovers against that high powered offense but yet, they only scored 20 Points on us plus a defensive TD. Not to mention, our defense stepped the hell up when it mattered the most and got a stop and got the ball back for our offense with plenty of time on the clock only to fall short at the end... lost by 3 on a last drive INT in their territory.
We played them down to the wire when our team was in disarray and practically handed them the game and they struggled to put us away.
YES we want to get to the damn playoffs because who in the NFC is just going to walk into San Francisco in that 1st round and just slap us around? I don't see it happening and IF we make it, it will mean we caught fire at the end of the year and anything can happen
