Now that I’ve allowed myself to calm down some since last night, I tried my best to collect a rational mind and think forward to what will be the next moves for the New Orleans Saints after their loss to the San Francisco 49ers last night in the Divisional round of the playoffs.

I thought about writing an article not long after the game was over.  However, I didn’t want to let my emotions take over and do a spewing rant.  Good thing.  Most of the people on Twitter took care of that issue, which I’ll bring up later.

After what most fans, including myself, thought would be another legitimate Super Bowl run, the Saints shot themselves in the foot with five turnovers and a defensive meltdown that gave up two touchdowns in the final four minutes of the game.

Hard to believe that within two minutes, myself, my wife and daughter would go from screaming and hugging in excitement to blank stares and somber silence.  The season was over.  As I sat in my chair, my thoughts drifted between shock and anger. 

The five turnovers, the lack of execution at certain times, the defense and worst of all…knowing that I’ll have to fork over about 20%  of my yearly salary within the next few months to renew my season tickets.  That’s included in the anger part.

I tried to set my mind on next season and what moves the Saints or those that are within the franchise will make.  Needless to say, some big ones will have to be made if the Saints want to play in the Super Bowl that will be hosted in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
