Cracking game of football!
Their off couldn't have played a better game, Brown in particular was brilliant and their off line just didn't allow any pressure on Ben.
As it's been the last few weeks it was down to the def making a BIG play to change the game, that tackle and fumble from Rankins was amazing.
In saying that though we were lucky with some of those penalties, that PI on Kamara was JUST there, and that penalty on 4th down was vital.

When drew had that fumble at the end of the first I was ready to call game.
Brilliant response by the Saints, in particular the def who really stood up.
Lattimore was insane and Thomas and Kamara were fantastic.
Bring on the Rams!
I haven't double checked but I'm pretty sure the eagles made no yards on our side of the field after quarter time. That's beyond nuts.

Feel bad for Alshon letting that ball go through but that’s football.
Our O line was really undisciplined with penalties - hopefully we amend that moving forward.
Sean Payton has a massive set on him calling those 2 plays on fourth down but the team needed a spark.
Bring on the Rams.
That's why I love this team, they take risks and usually they pay off.
As a Cats fan it's very much like 2007-2010 Cats, takes a high risk high reward type of system and back yourself to make those plays.
He does it all the time, and the team responds.
I mean this IS the dude who onsided to start the second half in a SB....
Those 2 4th downs, I reckon a lot of teams would have gone for the first but most would have taken a FG with the second, not this coach, not this team.

That INT was probably on Brees. But Ginn was rusty in the first Q.
Great to see the O get some rythm going. Brees had more time to sling it than he has in 2 months.
Good work defence, obviously couldn't stop foles flying high on his first 2 drives but broke his spirit with the first INT.

2 years in a row we've had a team good enough to win it.
Blew it last year by a miracle and ******* robbed this year.

I don't know if I can handle this.
If it's rams v pats I'll smash my TV and never watch NFL again.

Just picked up Malcolm Brown from the pats, thoughts guys?
Seems a quality pickup to me at an ok price (15/3) and adds to our run def really well, especially with rankins likely to miss atleast half the year (I know, different positions and all but still).
Starting to make a quality def line....

So who else have we lost? I can't seem to find too much info on any other moves, other than Ingram.
Hopefully we get Jared Cook, that'll finish up some fantastic signings!
