Saints vs. Seahawks Playoff Recap: Lack Of Offense Again Dooms The 2013 Saints, Season Over

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Who'd have thought going into the offseason we'd be wondering how Payton and the Saints can fix their offense for 2014? Credit Rob Ryan and his squad for keeping the game within reach all the way until the end. Ryan is easily the Saints' coach of the year. We Saints fans shouldn't be too bummed about yesterday as we knew beforehand how difficult it was going to be to win there. I'm confident Payton and Mickey Loomis will figure out the team's shortcomings and will have the Saints come out much stronger for next season.
