Two weeks from now, someone will bring this game up in an argument. Most likely citing it as a bad game by Matt Schaub. But the stats are going to say Matt had a great game & that's all we will remember.
We had a 6 point lead going into the second half & scored 17 points in the second half. That should have been enough to win. We picked Brees twice, sacked him twice (Schaub only got sacked once, picked once)
As great as our defense played in the first half, they folded when we had the lead. Someone said it in the gameday thread. We were asking too much from our defense.
