Diehard Saints fan here, but after the way tonight and this season has gone in addition to the rise of the Pelicans and Tulane, the Who Dats are looking at being 3rd fiddle when it comes to NOLA sports teams (LSU doesn't count), Tulane can continue to build up fan interest in the city and over time in the region with the Saints looking like a dumpster fire at this moment. A win in the Cotton Bowl will even get more attention.

I said a few months ago that the Saints wouldn’t win as many games as Tulane in spite of having 4-5 more games. Absolutely poor coaching tonight. 16-3 I saw 17-16 coming once they passed on 3rd and one then punted. FG’s are for losers.

This quote from The Athletic sums it all up:
The Saints’ bizarre season is over. New Orleans had a 97 percent chance to win this game with 3:23 left. A masterful defensive performance was nullified by an offense that could not muster more than a field goal when it needed touchdowns, or waste enough clock to put the game away. A talented roster is 4-9 and questions about the first-year coaching staff are here. RIP, 2022 playoff hopes. They probably win if Mark Ingram gets one more yard here. Brutal.

Also, don’t forget that the Saints’ first-round pick next year — slated to be in the top five after last night’s loss — belongs to the 11-1 Eagles.

It's unbelievable how this game was bungled by professional coaches and athletes making millions of dollars. So many bone-headed decisions and now they're already out of the playoffs and December barely started.

Really was. Totally embarrassing. They basically gave it to Brady on a platter.

Even sadder is the Eagles 11-1 have our first round pick which might end up in the top 5.

I have a few friends that pay a fortune going to Saints games that aren’t renewing next year if Allen is back as HC.

Can't see why anyone supports the billionaire owner and millionaire players for the Saints. State tax dollars give billionaire Benson tax breaks at the expense of higher education, Millionaire Kamara mauls a man on the ground that had passed out, just like a wild animal, still allowed to work and make millions while his criminal act was on camara. Show me results for the tax breaks and the thousands in season tickets where does that money go to other states where many players live. How about sending some of that money to support college athletes and students.

Have to give him credit for actually stepping up and acknowledging he screwed up. If he puts his head down and stays in bounds, they get the first, and they win the game.
