    More like just Hopkins. This offense is in serious trouble if he ever gets hurt. Watson is average at best without Hopkins. I guess nobody else can see how often he bails Watson out.

    This loss would be funny if it all weren't so bloody predictable.

    Year SIX and we're still looking at moral victories.

    The two timeouts in the 1st half were so on brand for BoB. "Well, I could challenge the call... or... I could call a timeout to think about challenging and then challenge. Wait? I lose a 2nd timeout if I'm wrong? Ahh hell."

    Exactly why I have no faith in this team. OB is clueless about football.

    Don't matter.
    We got to have at least a "star" player somehow; sometimes we have two.

    The point is O'Brien.

    If you think Watson is average at best, take it up with his gang, on a better day

    Not my beef.

    O'Brien is terrible but firing him will not sole the problem..
    You have to look at ownership.
    I believe teams reflect their ownership and this ownership is clueless..
    The sheer fact they allow this team to function without a GM is proof enough..
    As long at the McNair family is running the team they will be mediocre, they must sell to get this team a fresh start.

    Which is why they traded for Tunsil.

    You must have missed the memo, we're going to the super bowl this year.

    How many of you were thinking he should have challenged that spot instead of calling a timeout?

    Seriously. I had to look at the clock to see if he was giving them time to challenge it... but nope, outside of 2 minutes don't work that way.

    Then when they said they were reviewing it I thought, "hmmm I guess it does work that way. I was wrong."

    Then when they charged him two timeouts & a challenge I lost it. I was screaming, "Penalize the Dumas for calling back to back timeouts why don't you?"

    I was perfectly okay with him challenging the spot. It's the taking the timeout before challenging that had me banging my head against the wall. Either way you get a timeout, so may as well challenge it if it's close. For a coach who receives as much game management criticism as he has, he walked right on into more with that timeout then challenge decision.

    He needed the timeout to determine if it was worth a challenge (refs got it wrong imo), it was at the end of the 1st half so no big loss

    edit: I was pissed at the time too

    Not me,

    I'm happy with the new direction of the franchise.

    For the 1st time since their inception, there's finally some accountability.

    Oh lord! That was probably the best response I’ve seen all day! Lol. Someone must have forgotten that Fuller and Stills are the ones that stretched the field and caught them deep bombs. While Hopkins is great, I cannot even begin to understand why that guy would make that claim! Lol

    One entertaining game we almost won isn't enough to erase five years of transgressions.

    I'm not interested in moral victories. He was brought in five years ago to take us past that.

    I probably would've fired Romeo on the spot (too old, too experienced for that level of stupid), but isn't this in the familiar "not my job" territory of our Head Coach? Your defensive coordinator is right there on the sideline next to you, he has a mic to the mike ... recognize what's happening and scream in his ear to scream to the rest of the team to pull up. The Saints weren't in any hurry, you had plenty of time to recognize a problem and fix it ... why didn't you? Too busy being the offensive coordinator and Gm and playcaller and QB coach and remembering that time you ... wait, we lost? The announcers were able to describe exactly what was going to happen in detail because Romeo had a brain fart and our head coach was ... what were you doing?

    Most Qb's are relegated to average at best when they don't have any consistent weapons. I think Watson did plenty of good things Monday night. It is not like he was up against traditional bottom feeders such as the NY Jets or the Detroit Lions.

    We have weapons now and I think our offense is a work in progress. Around week four or five we should see an offense that spreads the ball around more frequently like the best teams such as the KC Chiefs do.
