    From lossers to mentally insane

    I don't agree with the idea, that for 42 years we sucked either. I remember some very good seasons with Mora as coach, and some very great players back then. Did we win a play off, or a superbowl? No, but I definately got "spoiled", watching great defense with the dome patrol every week. I don't understand why people seem to think we never won a game before 09.

    I disagree completely. The Falcons beat us. They did so because we allowed them to do it. We would be 3-0 but by our own accord. Atlanta didn't study film and beat us through the determination of beating the defending Super Bowl champs. We lost because we are not playing championship calibre football. 40+ years of losing notwithstanding, we are right to expect our team to play MUCH better than it has played thus far.

    I'm not about to give this year's team a pass on poor play because previous teams didn't measure up - I fail to grasp that concept.

    The fact is the offense is sputtering. The Vikings game should not have been so close. San Francisco was doing quite well in "poor passing conditions", and Atlanta's Falcons used their TE to exploit our defense for 4 quarters.

    Rarely have I been pessimistic about my New Orleans Saints, and I'm not saying the sky is falling, but I believe too many people are willing to overlook things because we, as a group, are proud of what last year's team was finally able to accomplish.

    This is a new year, a new team, and, unfortunately, thus far different results are being seen. I am frustrated because we aren't playing with swagger. We aren't playing with the same passion, the same immediacy, the same heart.

    Unfortunately, our losses are squarely on our own shoulders. They are not the result of being game planned as Champions.

    Nicely put. I remember when the Bills went four times in a row and lost each time. What we have is a gumbo that has been simmering for 43 years, and every body wants some. The longer the wait the better the pay off I say. I hope folks don't get whinny like the spoiled rotten Steeler fans when they come up short.

    The Saints have as good a chance as any body of a repeat. Buffalo went four times in a row, lost them all, but hey.

    I have been a Saints fan since 1976. I can remember when Morten Andersen was a rookie. I live in Central Cal. Niner and Raider fans are all nuts. We have never looked better.
