I don't fault Brees for a sub-par game because he gave me SOME points.
Even if Smith gave me a couple points, I wouldn't point the finger at him.
Doesn't matter. I lost last week in the semis by 0.14 points. My team lost the game because they didn't score more points than the other team. If my QB had 4 more yards I win. If my RB's, WR's, or TE had 2 more yards or 1 more reception (0.5 PPR) I win. If my kicker had another FG or 2 more XP's I win. If my D held their opponent to 3 less points, had 2 more sacks or 1 more turnover I win.
And today I lost a SB game to a team who had Smith give him -0.5 points. You know why? The rest of his team picked up the slack and scored more points than my team.
Smith scoring 0 sucks but he didn't lose you the game by himself. Your team lost because it didn't score more points than your opponent.
