1) The No. 1 culprit was not the coaching or the injuries or the crowd. It was Roman Harper’s first-half performance.

Clearly, the Saints did not match the Seahawks’ intensity level after the 10-0 start. But without Harper’s inexplicable nightmare of a first half, New Orleans would have won. Relatively comfortably.
