Well, if we are gonna have a wish list

1. Venturi Gone

2. Haslett, (can we trade him? ROFL), gone for Weiss or Jimmy Johnson

3. First Round DT in the draft

4. AB to Arizona for Davey and a pick or two, the guy is a tough tough winner that does not know how to give up and always knows he can win...He has seen how to when everywhere he has played (LSU and NE) and knows the Weiss playbook confidence purs out of that guy when he walks on the field, it is worth the chance because:

5. We get a pick for AB and we can use it to get a quality O-lineman in the draft

I've got more but I'm tired of whining

There are only a few I would keep. Horn, Conwell, McKenzie, Bullocks, Howard, Grant, Smith, Fincher, Deuce, Karney, A Smith, F Brown, D Smith, Henderson, J Brown, McPhearson and maybe a few more on the Offense and a couple more on defense, but we need an entirely new team, coach and all.

Like stallworth said, I would love to eat my own words if, IF the Saints turn it around.

I do agree with most of you and am glad other people see that it is time for a change. I am tired of the "Your not a REAL FAN", B.S. I am just tired of losing guys as I know all of you are well. Here is my wish list.

1. Haz and Venturi are both top priorities to get rid of, ASAP.

2. Head Coach? I don't see us getting Weis, ND won't let him go. I don't think Benson will pay what it would take to get him anyway. Maybe Mike Shula.

3. To Mr. Brooks....You have broke our hearts one too many times brother, time to go. His replacement????? I honsetly don't know, we do need a younger veteran, NO Kurt Warners.

4. Offense and Defense and Special Teams.....I think this problem could easily be solved with coaching. We do need one stronger leader on both sides of the ball. These guys have no confidence and no one to give it to them.

5. As far as the draft goes I agree with thedeuce on his last comment.

If we are not the best and most faithful fans in sports history I don't know who is. We complain and cuss because we love our team. Heres to "HOPE" and hoping things get better.

This team has talent on it, but there are still a few missing links.
We're good at WR, but I do feel we need a tight end that can catch and opens up the middle.
We also need a QB that can read a defense and make quick decisions and not hold onto the ball so long. That's one reason for the sacks/pressure, leading to dumb decisions. I think AB has a rocket for an arm and at times looks really good, but it's those dumb decisions and it's time for a change for the better, not worse (aka Heath Shuler, the Billy Joe's, Kerry Collins, all bad saint QB's)
We some good LB's and a DT. One more shut down corner to add depth and pay Brown, I think we are a better pass defending team with him in the lineup.
I also think we need a new Defensive Cord. along with a General Manager. I'm not that down on HAZ, more so, on Management and the lack of being able to notice true talent (aka Jonathan Sullivan, although he is playing a little better this year, but not worth two first round draft choices) Just all the dumb decisions made by management!!!
With that said, I can't stand our owner, I think he is a greedy cold hearted guy. I could be wrong, but that's how I see him
WITH ALL THE THINGS I'VE SAID AND EVERYBODY ELSE HAS SAID, THERE IS ONE MOVE THAT I WOULDN'T DO AND THATS MOVE THE SAINTS TO SAN ANTONIO OR LA OR ANYWERE ELSE. KEEP THEM WHERE THEY BELONG. THAT'S IN NOLA....

I want Randy Mueller back, I think Benson let him go because the guy actually did a good job and he just could not stand it that they were not any of his ideas...

i am praying for-
1. a new stadium leading to long term NO security. watch games in BR for a yr or two and cultivate statewide support.
2. old tom to hand over the reigns or have them taken from his senile self. i'd rather be damned by an evil that i don't know(rita) than one i know all to well.
3. a real football guy as g.m. very little expectation of it but it can't hurt to shoot your prayers high.
4. venturi gone. even less expectation of this but maybe he could find a paper shuffling spot in the front office and inflict less damage.
5. haz gone. he'll make someone a good asst. tho i have read his name already mentioned for other jobs
6. bye bye brooks. i hate that he will end up with some alltime No records over archie. somebody might be able to harness his talents. i'd like to see him back in green bay in the cold. they are gonna be pretty dreadful next year. no, arizona! that is a career resume- NO and ARZ lol.
7. at least an average defense. it is more than an axiom, defense wins championships. i'd trade anybody to get equal value and upgrade the defense. with some halfass LBs and a real coordinator it could turnaround quick.
