Last I checked, New Orleans is arguably the team with the best chance to beat Green Bay in the playoffs, and make it to the Super Bowl. So apparently playoff bound teams (even those expected to make some noise when they get there) do occasionally lose to one win teams.
New Orleans also beat the Colts 62 - 7.
And our rookie QB did not lose the game to the Colts. Our "elite" #2 defense lost it in the two minute warning to Dan freakin' Orlavsky.
That should be a concern for anyone thinking that our defense can carry this team to the Super Bowl.
