    I think Jeff Blake brought us through the season. Aaron Brooks was cleanup. When Blake returned to service the next season, he wasn't even given a chance to return as the starter.

    Jim Haslett was a fool.... I digress.

    I too want that recipe for Crawfish Chowder! Sounds delish!!!



    Back on topic... things are so much better with this organization since Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis run things. Offseason is actually an exciting adventure as opposed to "WTF ARE THEY DOING!!"

    Good Blog JimmyB!

    You are not alone in your feelings. While I feel like you do; I make myself remember how good of a team we have now. Pre 2006; I don't have to wonder "If" we are going to have a good team this year. Let me get something off my chest... I HATE LOSING (Period). With that said; this Saints team no longer makes me wonder "If" we are going to have a good year. I know we are. The only "IF" now; is, do I cook Crawfish Chowder or Red Beans "IF" we go to the Super Bowl this year. For me, that's a good "IF" to ponder every year.

    Think we're a player or 2 from seeing real results on defense. We need a stud d-lineman and at least 1 new linebacker. May also need to add a veteran corner.

    I don't think we have bad players. Think some are overpaid, others need to be added.

    Yeah, hopefully he'll get more out of our defensive "stars" and bring in one guy who will give the defense a boost in attitude as well as some energy. I don't even know how much we lost this year with the lack of takeaways. But those are more than just an additional possession. They give momentum which is worth much more than the extra drive. We went 14-4 WITHOUT that!

    It stung for me too, but that soon will pass. It all ended for me when we hired Spagnoulo as defensive coordinator. That gave me tons of hope an excitement for the upcoming season.

    Are the Saints in a very bad position going into 2012?

    Long as we keep brees we are ok cause we have the number one tight end and three dominating running backs but we shore need colston for shore we need some one on the other side of the field to jump instead of going to Jimmy everytime and Robert Meacham this guy is fast man I say cut people who's not playing to much and keep Robert and Markus I know we need secondary and its all about the salary cap we need impact players for next season because super bowl is in our house next year and we gotta be one of the teams plyin in it and the team winning it

    IMO, losing a heartbreaker like this builds more character than a blowout loss. It's damn tough to take, thinking what might have been. It takes big balls and big guts to move forward, but we can take solace in knowing that the Saints left it all out on the field and we'll be motivated next year. After the shock is gone, it's empowering.
    That's why I'm so excited they're moving in another direction on defense. Look, Gregg Williams brought us to the promised land where our defense STUNK before. But it was a flash in the pan.... 1 and done. Once the rest of the NFL figures out what you're doing, they adjust.

    Glad we have something to look forward to!
