    I don't know that I've seen this article posted (if so, please merge), but it's worth reading in total. It makes Winston's remarks about (paraphrase) "I'm sure we'll go back and review tapes, and find some good things we did" pretty sad.

    I just want to see the "it's only preseason" line used because we killed some team 50-0.

    Gary is upset the team was killed by Drew Brees and some third string QB neither one of which is as good as Manning. Who would have thought?

    Brees had a terrible game. 5 of 10 for 36 yards and a QB rating of 58.8...

    he played far better than the stats showed. He also barely threw the ball too, considering they were running down our throats. And one of those passes was a clutch 3rd conversion near the end zone, while he was falling down. It was a pretty awesome play.

    That of course led to him hurrying up the line and getting an easy rushing "David Carr" type TD.

    After Saturday nights fiasco,if Kubes didn't want the title of this thread he should be fired immediately.

    More lip srevice,the proof will be in the substance not just in Kubes words.

    But wait a minute... I didnt think anything was wrong? Why is Kubiak so upset? Its just pre-season.

    Sorry y'all, but this is just another typical Kubiak team. I wish I felt differently about the matter, but I've lost confidence in our head coach. I hope I am proven wrong many times over this season, but last Saturday did not surprise me at all. Kubiak has been and remains a milquetoast head coach in my mind.

    The Saints ran the ball a lot more and Drew played better than it looked like he did no stats tell the whole story.

    Understood. That said, the Texans were fairly lucky that they caught Brees not playing at his normal standard. That was my point to Gary.

    I'm sure the defense and offense will improve once the season is underway and it's too late to make the playoffs... :(

    We don't need to be talking about Drew Brees. Chase freakin Daniel was beating our 1st string Defense.

    It's funny when you destroy someone in pre-season you can't feel good about it because it's preseason but when you get destroyed (like we did against the Saints) it's time to panic.

    Oh, how I loathe you, preseason. And I kind of like you some too. :kitten:

    The Saints just did very well with both QB's in the game as a team.

    The way he looked I hope he gets cut and we pick him up to be our 2nd string QB. He probably doesn't get cut though. He looked better than Patrick Ramsey, the Saints current 2nd string QB.
