A win is a win

Even though we had no business winning that game. I'll take it.

Going 3-3 would have killed this team.

i wonder how much blank slipped the refs...i gotta feel for saints fans, the saints outplayed the falcons in almost every facet of the game and for it to end like that!? sheesh!

IDK man, the Saints were getting a lot of calls too. That field goal flag was kind of weak though I will admit to that. I'm just glad we got the win we needed.

It was the correct call even though it had no baring on the kick. It is one of those "Just glad it wasn't my team" calls.

Only the Saints and the Falcons could have had a ball run back for a TD before half on a blocked field goal. Then to have the refs hand us the game... and you think WE get bad calls.

I think either way we should be 4-2, since I feel we should have won against New England and lost against the Saints. Looks like Karma came back to help us out.

Good post Maryland, and now that I think about it you're completely right. Looks like we took the fight out of NE for the Broncos at least...Karma got them too...lol

The Saints didn't deserve that outcome!

yeah, the more i think about it, the less i feel for the saints (at least for this game). i really doubt the pats fans were feeling bad about that crappy call on schuab going out of bounds and if it were the other way around im sure the saints would be just happy about the win.
mistakes by the other team, and questionable calls are just a part of the game. and as mora said, and im paraphrasing, after a game like that you just put it in your pocket and get on the plane as fast as you can so u can get home.
