Halo

Feelin good about the thought here

Now on to issues at hand .

Having been born a Saints fan , dealing with last years season finale is by far the worst most humiliating experience I could imagine .I have endured bad players , coaches and owners . Never have I had to endure a coach and his relentless desire to watch a team fall to pieces with an injured quarterback under center and a capable backup on the sidelines .Then have to hear him try to justify it to the local media in an after season all nighter .
By the way lets not forget that losing those games was partly the fault of the fans .......

My absense has been partly work and partly the unwilling desire to talk football when the coaching staff is not willing to do what it takes to win .Haslett lied to Saints fans about Brooks condition and has expected us as fans just to follow along and wag our tails , when Haslett decides it is better to lose the season rather then have a quarterback controversy and potentially upset Brooks frail ego .

Some will say \" Look Haslett went out and got Bouman to challenge Brooks \" , there is not much of a challenge from a 1 year unrestricted free agent , as Bouman is .Had Bouman been brought in and resigned for 5 years , he would pose a threat , as it stands now any playing time will only pad his contract next year when he signs with the Panthers .Not knocking Delhomme but that heavy Cajun acccent in Carolina has already caused some issues .

My only satisfaction is the thought that as season ticket sales reach an all time high , it is because 54, 000 + loyal Saints fans have the desire to make Haslett pay dearly for last seasons remarks about the fans ....................

Saintz08 is back...and in fine form I might add. Still on the Delhome bandwagon and still convinced Haz is purposfully trying to ruin the New Orleans Franchise. By the way, \"08\" wasn\'t working, he was out in Hollywood auditioning for the latest Oliver Stone Conspiracy Movie! LOL

You know I\'m Kiddin 08...along with Whodat and Gatorman you make this board a large part of what it is, and I\'m glad to see you\'re back. I love a good fight anyway!

That\'s pretty funny stuff, but why would Haslett have to lie about Brooks? He didn\'t need our permission to play Brooks. And as far as Bouman not being a threat to Brooks, I\'m sure that\'s the samething that Blake said about Aaron.

You need to jump on board the Haslett and Brooks band wagon.......

To me, the only decision that openly displayed a failure to achieve success was the release of Randy Mueller as GM. You hire a guy to run your company, he makes solid decisions and basically earns the praise of his peers around the league for his achievements in a short term, and then you axe him because he didn\'t get authorization for some of his purchases.
Brooks not getting pulled was a coaching judgement call. It was not to blatantly undermine the teams success, and I\'m sure the intention was for success, regardless of the potential motives. I have to take the act at face value and assume he never knew the extent of the injury and was basically telling Brooks to \"suck it up\" and prove you are a winner. Hindsight is always 20/20.
Turfing Mueller was an ego shot, and that\'s the only way I see it. So what if Mueller was a power trip. This is all about winning. Nothing else matters but winning. As much as the 49ers and the Cowboys of the 80\'s and 90\'s whored themselves in situations, they have rings to show for it. I\'d take a successful dictatorship for a ring anyday.
