I spoke with Drew Brees following the Sunday game against San Fran, and he said the big turnovers were the big factor in the loss.
“Obviously there were a lot of opportunities out there that we felt like, man, we didn't take advantage of like we needed to,” Brees said. "The most important thing is taking care of the ball, it always is. I felt like defensively we got a big one, special teams we got a big one. Unfortunately, offensively, you kind of scratch those out by giving them two. The fact that both resulted in touchdowns was the dagger."
With the Black and Gold now at 5-6, does #9 see this Thursday’s divisional battle with Atlanta as a “must-win?”
"Well, I think each one of these is just that much more important. Huge sense of urgency...we're not banking our whole season on one game, and at the end of November. We still have a lot of football left, but certainly, we understand the importance of this one."
May the Good Lord Jesus bless you Drew with no turn-overs this game. May he also bless our defense to get turn-overs from the Atlanta Failcons and you and the offense score touchdowns on them, plus you regular offense drives get touchdowns as well. In Jesus's name we pray, and all Saints fans everywhere say: Amen, and Amen!
