No bullets today as breaking down the individual poor play in the player grades will be painful enough.
Final score: Tampa 26 New Orleans 20.
It's a tough loss but it's not devastating. Tampa needed this much more than the Saints did. I am confident this Saints team will rebound and will play better offensively. Defensively, I still have yet to see them play at anywhere close to a playoff quality level.
Stay tuned for the grades...
I used to be a Harper fan but I agree his performance has been incredibly poor since the playoff game.
Can we please start a petition to replace Roman Harper?! I can't say how many big plays (for the other teams) that he is a part of. I know he's the Safety, and there are at least 10 other players that should be tackling people, but dang, he can't make an open field tackle. He's let DeAngelo Williams and Earnest Graham have the biggest games of their seasons...somebody check his knees, because he crumbles on the slightest juke...GET RID OF #41
Indeed Brees his game was not the best, though you can only credit him fully for the int he threw to colston. Meachem should have had the first ball and the last was a must throw he would not have made on any other down.
