jeffduncantp That'll do it. Pick Six by Rodgers-Cromartie makes it 30-20 'Zona with 10 ticks to go. Saints will fall to 3-2. Big win for Cards.

T_Porter22 RT @maxminelli: Its ok champs, nobody ever said it would be easy. We'll be ok. #whodat 4 life

T_Porter22 Man, two losses under our belt..the only thing this means is that we can't go 16-0 or 15-1. Doesn't mean anything else..

jeffduncantp Waiting for sean payton's post-game presser. Meantime, here's a stat: #saints ran 13 plays in the red zone today and gained 22 yards.

reggie_bush Tough loss for us today. We have to get better and find a way to win the next game. It's hard to win in this league but we are up 2 the task

sharper42 Tough loss,we will bounce back. Especially when we get healthy.

robyslyfe Stings, but we are a TEAM win or lose...still a lot of football ahead of us. Who Dat!!

jgoody76 That was a Frustrating game. No quit in me or this team though! We will get it right!

MalcolmJenkins This is gonna be the longest flight ever...#backtonola. Can't wait to get back home

JonVilma51 Tuff loss today...we win as a team, we lose as a team... and as a team... we got to get better. That's what champions do.

MalcolmJenkins I know the majority of saints fans are loyal as can be and have stuck with us through wayyy worse than two losses and that was my point

MalcolmJenkins We play for you guys... the real who dat nation!

alexbrown96 Tough loss out there today. We have got to improve as a team and understand this is a long season but the sooner we get on track the better.

FletcherMackel I talk a lot....a lot....and I'm speechless...not sure what to say after that game.

jeffduncantp How wild is the NFC? In one week, the Saints go from being tied for the best record in the NFC to being in third place in theirdivision.    

T_Porter22 Not time to panic bc it's still early...but WE have to make the proper corrections to get us back to playing SAINTS fball as we know it. True champions know what it takes. And WE WILL do whatever it takes!!
