Total different team chemistry. Main difference though is Carolina has not won squat yet so really no point in comparing them. Go win the SB then write the article. I'm not taking away their record, they have had success but still a lot of football. Way to early too compare these teams.

And just like last year, they believed their own hype and thought they were the bees' knees.

Read that paragraph by Harper carefully again, folks. I'd say he is definitely talking in an oblique way about Payton and the current locker room culture of the Saints. He is still friends with a lot of those guys here, and loves them.
That might be the reason Payton is taking them away from NOLA for training camp....to get them away from that culture. I don't care what they do in their personal time, as long as they win championships, I could care less. The Saints used to be an organization where FA's had a good shot to play because regardless of draft status we had a "best player play" culture. I didn't really care what players did because at the end of the day, they chose the fate of their job with the decisions they made on and off the field. That doesn't seem to be the case anymore. I think we lack accountability amongst other problems. Whatever the case,this ship will be righted and I hope its sooner than later.

nicely put but they do try to get rid of the wrong attitudes and rule breakers as in galette, hope this move saves this team, we are young and making to many mistakes. that's the reason we are 4-6. I believe this nucleus will get better and better, just think the panthers got kuelkey lb just before us. the guy is special. we got to stick together.

I'm not just talking about players like Galette and that type of drama, I'm also including players staying out late and coming into meetings or getting on the bus/plane late. If a player stays out late,but still does all the things he needs to do as a professional and shows up on game day, its all good. But,if a playeris out late causing problems,showing up late, not performing at 100%,then that's a problem. I know players are gonna have bad games or not be in a zone,playing 100% all the time,but if its because of of field shenanigans, they should be benched for as long as it takes...I don't care who it is.

Re: Roman Harper: Why We’re Undefeated

Like Max McGee who scored the first two touchdowns in Super Bowl history! Got plastered the night before Super Bowl I because he knew he wouldn't play and had to borrow a helmet when he was put in. As he said after the game. “When it’s third-and-10, you can take the milk drinkers and I’ll take the whiskey drinkers every time.”

That's why we need Johnnie Football!!! He can walk from the Quarter to the dome and play then walk back!! Bring back the old Raiders of the 60's and 70's. "Just win Baby!!" We need Junior back and get Hardy from the Cowboys. Our new motto: "We don't want players with character, we wan't Characters who can Play"

IDK, I kinda' like that kind of player but that was then and this is now. It mighta' worked back then, but today's professional athletes have a different mindset, are too self-centered and only worried about "gettin' mine", IMO. Different era, .

Yeah Carolina hasn't made it the SB yet. Seen a lot of big gunslingers get knocked off on the way to the Saloon.

Re: Roman Harper: Why We’re Undefeated

Good Read.

As an outsider / visitor to NO / before & after Katrina, I resented these words, "...embraced our role as celebrities of a small market.."

He forgot history. He forgot what that building represented, the loss of life, dignity and hope. He forgot as 80,000 filled in with renewed hope focused on not what was lost but what lifted their soul; 80,000 lost their life earlier that morning in Haiti.

My numbers may be wrong; I will never forget making that observation between the death toll in Haiti and attendance at the playoff game.

For a brief moment in time, Harper was part of something larger than a team that won a Superbowl.

Yes, a good read but selfish.


Perhaps, he missed that the team was greater than a roster.
