ESPN Saints rumors

On the Monday Night ESPN pre-game it was said "That earlier this week, the normally quiet Darren Howard became such a distraction that the team considered letting him go." They also said that Haslett got so frustrated with Brooks' mistakes during practice that he tore into him. Does anyone know anymore on these topics, or have any links to this info?

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

On the Mort report on ESPN just now he said that it is very unlikely that AB will be back and close Haslett friends say that they would be surprised if Haslett came back. Also he stated that the Saints were a possibility for Pete Carroll in the near future. Also he said that Tags is going to fight Benson with the San Antonio thing because the NFL thinks they should play and practice as much as possible in Louisiana and Benson wants it all in San Antonio.

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

no offense but they should be playing all their games next year in san antonio. they can always go back to new orleans the next year. but they can't be all over the place next year or that hurts our free agent choices. we need one place to play games only. you have to forget all of the people crying for you to play in new orleans and do what is best for the team first

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

Hey 25, they were also talking about way to attract more free agents to New Orleans because of the present situation. We don't know what those enticements might be yet?

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

yeah i know but it will still be hard even if you can offer more money. just in all honesty they need to play in one place only next year. that is just how i see things. you can't be all over the place again

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

hey 25, how can you think playing in san antionio next year is a good thing. the facilities in metarie are unblemished, many of the communites that current saints players live in are back in the old swing of things.
why in the world would they play in san antonio?
arizona and chicago both played in college stadiums for at least on full season. why not us also? why would we further alienate our fanbase and community when we could play in friggin high school stadium next year. as far as im concerned we can play on a pee wee leauge field and ill be ok, but san antonio can end this wet dream of getting our team.

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

According to Brooks' interview (see other post), 8 or 9 players' home were damaged by the storm. Out of 62. The facilities are pristine and the City is gaining speed. Jefferson Parish is motoring along as is the North Shore. The Jets travel 40 miles through the worst traffic imaginable to play in the Meadowlands.

25, What is your argument that SA is better than NO? Can't be better practice facilities. Can't be a bigger stadium or that it is too far away (3 games max at LSU, 5 in the DOME). Can't be undamaged homes. Can't be that there's no support/infrastructure in Greater New Orleans. Enlighten me, please.

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

More people will go to a game in San Antonio than in New Orleans at this point in time. S.A. just passed Dallas for the second largest city in Texas. They'll do whatever it takes to get their greasy, slimy, no-good hands on our Saints (even if it means kicking Louisiana while it's down).

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

I am not sure why they cant be based in Louisiana and play one or two games at LSU and and some in say shreveport at Independance stadium, it has some new sky boxes, we know Benson likes those, or even somewhere that may be starving for some NDL action like Memphis or Little Rock, both cities have some decent facilities for play, I know its not Louisiana, but they are all potential sellouts, who would like to see Deuce run wild in Oxford or Jackson MS?
