For all of you people saying "No, it was the defense", did you see the defensive play calls? It wasn't like players were being burned. Saints WRs were wide open because coverage was almost always backed off.
When your team scores 27 points and still loses, its the defense. Not enough pressure. Soft coverage. Still sucking at DT. Poor tackling. Making things easy for opposing offenses. We have a vanilla defense.

Chud did well today
Wrong. Anytime you REFUSE to run Stewart & Williams in goal line situations (ALL SEASON LONG), and instead choose to bang your Quarterback into the defense over and over on goal line situations, you called a bad game.
Rivera's a rookie head coach. I think he'll learn, just like his QB, but I always preferred Harbaugh.

how could he not just leave the base defense on the field in that situation? There was no reason to substitute.

Chud did a great job today.
I like the mix of calls.
I don't like that DWill went had 115 yards at the half, then had 115 yards at the end of the game. Why leave your go-to guy out of the game?

The timeout was a mistake.
I question the decision on 3rd and 2, I would have liked there to be more options on such a crucial play.
Spread them out give Cam the chance to throw hot against a bltiz or have a hi-lo read then if the play isn't there the defense is already spread out which would give Newton a chance to run.
But, despite their mistakes its very hard for me to find fault with the coaching staff on offense.
