Saints fan here. Not here to troll. Your D played its butt off. In regards to the hit on Brees, yes it was a penalty. It shouldn't have come down to a fg if our idiot backup db can just hold onto the ball to score a td. What surprised me was how well the Saints D controlled the line of scrimmage and kept the running game in check. Please beat the sea chickens at home. I still think you guys will get one of the wild card spots. Hope you guys have strong finish free from injuries.
That play was clean, but in real time I understand why it was called. BUT the NFL needs to review these plays.
People are saying it was only one play, blah blah blah, the team could have played better in other areas. Fact of the matter is, these games come down to 3 or 4 big plays. To have the ref fumble the ball on this one is crazy. Congratulations, your corner fumbled away a pick 6....vernon davis was also held in the endzone and Frank Gore dropped a probable touch down.
You didn't do anything special, all decent defenses have been controlling the LOS bc they stack the box and Kap/coaches cant figure out how to throw the ball.
The 49ers probably won't beat the seahawks, you guys have no chance against them, at all - hopefully the 49ers can make the playoffs, be at 100% with all our players back and in condition, i.e. Aldon Smith no puking on the sidelines because he's sick, and pay you a visit in the playoffs. THEN we'll see what happens to Mr. Brees and his long neck.
