Week 17- Saints 27 vs Panthers 10 SAINTS FINISH SEASON ON 2 GAME WINING STREAK - FINISH 9-7 & OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS Carolina - Savage Mason Reporting New Orleans rolled into Carolina to finish off their season and try to end on a high note and end with a winning record. Carolina had already decided to sit their QB Delhomme and New Orleans was looking to let everyone finish the season on a high note. The game was a bit of a downer with Saints defense picking off Carolina most of the 1st half and Brees jumping out to a quick 21-0 lead. Saints sat Brees and the game was ho'hum the rest of the way. Carolina didn't look to want to win or try to win and there wasn't anything exciting to speak about. NO Saints CB Brown who got a start several weeks back, played very well as the Saints are looking to keep him as a starter next year. Here are some highlights from the game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mK4e2lrTVfI (F. Washington INT) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1cdLMSND3A (F.

Off to the offseason as the saints look to make just a hand full of moves to bring in a possible 3rd wr, a lb or two, possibly some olinemen and dlinemen. Player of the game: CB - F. Washington Washington has been nothing but splendid since coming over to NO. Washington ended the season with 9 picks and several pick 6's. Look for Washington to anchor down a very good defensive unit next year for NO.
