FYI....we did not close out the Saints like we should have....we actually gave the Saints way too many opportunities to come back and beat us. Clock management during the 4th quarter actually sucked pretty bad.

for the record, I don't HATE Rivera. I do question some of his calls/non-calls.

Not talking about his play calling but when It's fourth and short why not call for

a measurement. Last year he called a time out allowing the opposing team just

enough time for a field goal. I realize he's new to the head coach stuff but he

needs to get up to speed... QUICK. I don't want to lose a game because the head coach

didn't remember/know what to do. Your taking the game out of the players hands

at that point (imho).

I'll be more impressed with him when he outduels a guy like Coughlin, not whoever the Saints* 3rd string coach is.

I get what you're saying and won't argue. But our team made some great defensive adjustments after their first two series, especially on Graham and Sproles out of the backfield(not including those screens).

The best thing Rivera ever did in my eyes was take over his team, and call that timeout.

This is very true. We won, but it wasn't coaching and smart play calling late in the 4th and got us the W. It looked and felt to me like a same old complaint from last year. We were not closers. We handed a guy like Brees plenty of time to tie the game on a silver platter.

Only out of the Saints*** fatigue, their frustration, and the grace of Beason, did we pull this one off the way we did. Even with no TO's left, a scoring machine like NO, although sputtering, has to be respected, unlike their fans, coaches, and numerous defensive cheap shot artists.

WHERE ARE THE CHUD-HATERS NOW?

I'm no Chud hater, but he had a bad game plan going into Tampa and he didn't make the necessary adjustments as the game went on.

Against the Saints, we consistently gave more protection (blockers) to Cam and the running backs, and the results were excellent. I honestly believe Chud used Tampa almost as a 5th preseason game, thinking we could afford to go 3 to 4 wide all game, eschew the running game, and still get the win. It blew up on him.

Calling out coaching mistakes does not make one a "hater".

Oh please, there's like a grand total of ONE Rivera *hater*.

There's others that come out and bash Rivera about everything. From what I remember there's at least 5 anti-rivera guys. I rather not even name names.

I criticize him at times, but then again, I'm just a fan.

After the Dan Henning and Jeff Davison years...it will take A LOT of bad play and losing seasons for me to ever Hate on Chud..

Remember where this team came from...I was wishing for a freaking meteor to hit the earth ever Sunday in 2010...

I still watched every snap and post game interview...as much as I hated it and it was the worst football ever played...at any level that I have ever seen.

This team is not moving but ACCELERATING toward something special..

Except for the blockbuster Free Agency moves during the Super Bowl run this is the most excited I have been for the team in the last 10 years..actually this is more exciting bc our coach "aint afraid."

Yeah, that was good to see....he saw something and called a timeout I believe and pointed it out that the D wasn't set up right for it.

But Rivera should of NEVER let Chud get cute on that 4th down near the goal. unneeded.

You sayin' we shouldn't have gone for it on 4th down or just that you disagreed with the play call?

When did we become obligated just to be cheerleaders.I think most of us had a WTF moment after watching that game.They were out coached and out played but that does not make anyone a hater.We all knew what the offense was capable of and it did not show up on the field
