I will say that was one crazy game! And it stings like hell. And I would like to add we had a very good season. I wanted so badly to get that second ring. But we fell short. The good news? We weren't one and done. I'm not settling or anything of that matter, but if we're going to shoot for that second ring, we must improve on defense. Our offense was phenominal all season long. And Drew Brees will always be my hero till the end. He's a true leader and a winner. He did his job fighting us back to a possible win at the end. But the defense.....alot to be desired.
The 9ers have a great defense, and it certainly showed today by creating 5 turnovers. Even though we had a chance to win at the end, the 9ers Earned that victory. We didn't protect the football early on, 5 turnovers and still put up 32 points. Fought back after being down 17-0. Nothing wrong with this offense. The defense hung in there most of the game, but broke in the end. The better team won today. Congrats to the 9ers. You were the better team today, you proved it on the field.
No whining from me. You won't hear me say, oh we could have won even with 5 turnovers or this wasn't called, that wasn't called, the refs blah blah. I won't stoop to that level if you guys know what I mean. We got beat in an epic thriller. But I'm extremely proud of the offense fighting back in the game and at least giving us a chance. I love Sean Payton, Drew Brees and this team.
However, Dear God, please in the off-season, give us at least an "Improved Defense"
