    Short, but exactly to the point. The Saints were a borderline wild card team, that played way over their heads, got some incredible luck, and still played good enough to get a shot at the Super Bowl.

    Not having to play Aaron Rodgers, the botched intentional grounding against the Redskins, playing the Panthers in round 1 of the playoffs, and getting two rookie QB's in their first starts. Luck is a very important part to any playoff run.

    I can't attribute one players brain freeze to the whole team.

    Sounds like the nature of sports in general. Calling it luck is just a cheap dig.

    It takes more than one play to make a game.. win or lose. There were alot of things that contributed to the Saints losing that game. Not just one missed tackle at the end of the game.

    I disagree, while yes it is the nature of the game it is still luck, having said that almost every team that wins a championship or has a great run must have some luck involved. If it was anyone but Hawk saying it, this would just be an observation and not a cheap dig.

    You are describing sports in general, it often comes down to the last play.

    And it's not even a cheap dig...I gave the Saints credit for the gutsy comeback. I didn't think they had it in them.

    Not how we wanted it to end, but the future is bright. We sort of overacheived this year. Who Dat!
    And on top of Okafor, Klein, Anzalone,Breaux,Fairley and Peat, include Strief, Fleener, Kuhn, and Vaccaro and now you're talking 10 starters on IR.

    Not the time to take a swipe at you guys. Not after how it ended. I'm a savage, but not that savage.

    The cheap dig was your description of the lead up to how they found themselves in that game.

    Your gutsy comeback comment was spot on.

    The truth will set you free. It's not a stretch to say a team that went 7-9 the previous 3 seasons needed luck to get to 11-5.

    All you knuckleheads piling on Williams are forgetting what he did in the 59:50 before that play, including the brilliant interception of Keenum that set up the second touchdown. Dude made a mistake, which means he's human. And he owned up to it after the game, which means he's got integrity.

    I'm with the rookie. Hope he gets another chance.
