Saints vs. Chiefs: Notebook scribbles from Superdome press box; Add yours

*Wow2 (square) Was that a fumble? No, Kansas City RB Shaun Draughn was down. Come on back, Roman. Play some more D...

* Wow.. Dwayne Bowe has caught the Slipsies from the Saints. He had that long catch down the field on first down, placing the Chiefs in scoring range... But he dropped it in the air...

* Three consecutive incompletions to start overtime? Offensive start couldn't have been much worse for Saints.

*Overtime... Didn't see this coming earlier in the week...

*The Saints are intent on making this a tight game. And Jamaal Charles is doing his best to oblige. So is the Saints offensive line. The guys can't seem to handle Kansas City's rushers; Drew Brees gets sacked for a safety, and what was supposed to be a home game displaying vast improvements by the Saints has transformed into a nail-biter.

*Lance Moore is playing like he wants to become Brees' first WR option... 

*The Saints defense appears to be content to make things difficult on itself this season... Make a play, give up a bigger one... 

*Chiefs QB Matt Cassell was sacked twice by Junior Galette and once by Will Smith, but he still enjoyed too much time in the pocket...

*About time Darren Sproles got a few carries... Not that I expected his 47-yard run to open the game, but the offense was looking predictable 

*I didn't know FB Jed Collins had rhythm. He showed it off in the end zone after his short TD reception...

*I've watched the Pierre Thomas non-catch, non-touchdown several times and I'm still convinced he had his right wrist/arm under the ball as it made impact with the turf...

*If Jimmy Graham catches that routine third-and-long pass across the middle in the third quarter, the Saints keep most of the momentum they lost by punting.
