Moore was the player of the game against the Chiefs. He had four receptions for 70 yards and caught a touchdown pass on the Saints first offensive drive.
It's hard to pick a "winner" from the game defensively, but Galette had two sacks, a forced fumble, and two solo tackles.
Finally, a Saints defender caught an interception. Greer also had five solo tackles and had pretty good coverage throughout the game.
The Refs and Goodell
The combined one-two punch of the replacement refs and The Rog just officially crippled the Saints. Any pride or hope that they had left was just ripped away. These refs are as lost as last year's Easter eggs and are getting worse by the game. I picture The Rog chuckling as he watches the Saints get defeated.
I think it's safe to say that Spags could be the goat of the season. He came to the Saints expecting to turn this woeful defense around. Alternatively, his swiss cheese defense just gave up 510 yards to the 0-2 Kansas City Chiefs. 288 of those yards was dealt by one man, Jamaal Charles, who single handedly destroyed the Saints. All game, the Saints defense just couldn't get off of the field. Kansas City had the ball for about forty-two and a half minutes and had 92 offensive plays. If that's not a league record, then it's close.
I wonder if Kromer is pondering his history as a NFL coach in the picture shown. If not, he should be because so far his performance is dreadful. Does this guy even have a soul? The only time I see him talk is in his post game press conferences. We want Vitt!
Brees is once again a loser. On the opening drive, he looked hot as a fire cracker. But as the game progressed, his flame fizzled out. On a pretty good offensive drive, he under threw Devery Henderson for an interception. After that, Brees paced the sidelines and looked tight on the field. He finished with 240 yards, 3 touchdown passes, and an interception.
Graham only had four receptions for 16 yards on the night. While he did find the endzone once, he dropped a few important passes. He has been playing sloppy lately.
I think it's pretty safe to say that Ingram is a bust. He had five carries for 11 yards. Why are the Saints wasting a roster spot on this guy who is under performing, when they have Cadet and Ivory in street clothes on the sidelines. It makes no sense whatsoever.
Although Hartley's missed field goal came after an awful call by the zebras, he still had a chance to get the team some points. It turns out that his miss was the difference in the game. He was 1/2 and had three extra points.
The Offensive Line
This group is getting worse each week. They surrendered four sacks a safety. Brees was having to scramble all game.
The Defensive Line
These guys are getting no rush at all. They did get three sacks against the Chiefs, but they just couldn't stop the run. It seems like there was a gaping hole on every play.
