I generally don't like doing the work that the person asking the question could so easily do themselves, but here you go Smyce.

I've seen all this before and I was never on the ship. I knew we would have our meltdown eventually. It was great while it lasted.

We played like crap last weekend. People were upset, and rightfully so. No one jumped off of the ship (at least no one i knew) but if you expect everyone to just be hunky dory after a game like last week well you are insane. When our teams plays like they played last week people will be upset, people will say things like "same ole Saints". It wasnt the fact that we lost to a good team, it was the fact that we didnt even show up to play the damn game. Thats what I was upset about, thats what lots of people were upset about. No one jump ship, no one gave up. It was just a very upsetting experience.

Obviously if that person was never on the ship, he/she couldnt "jump" off. Also, I wouldnt call that person a fan if he/she never believed in this team to begin with, which he/she made quite evident in that post.

Also, no one made you do the "work".

I don't know anyone that was "hunky dory" after last week. I wasn't and I didn't expect anyone else to be. Everyone was upset, but there is a difference in being upset and exacerbating the situation of us losing with comments like "looks like we're back to being Saints of the old". Don't we have enough people in the media taking shots at us, why do we take shots at ourselves?

At some point, we have be the team that expects to win, not hopes to win. The excuse "well we lost to a good team" should no longer be in our vocabulary. Think the loser of that Colts/Pats game tonight is gonna say "well we lost to a good team"? Hell no. We have to stop being content with losing to good teams and start beating those good teams. Until then, we will always be the Saints of old.

And everything that I have heard on TV or read about comments by players and coaches on this team, we are already that team that you say we need to be.

Fans will be fans and we can say stuff like "we lost to a good team". But I have YET to hear about anyone on this team resting on their laurels. I just heard Drew Brees in his post game conference and he talked about the big first quarter, but he also talked about how the 3 and outs in the second quarter and how that was completely unacceptable.

It seem as if we already HAVE our new team and it's some of the fans that need to change the way they think.

i don't think it was fans jumping off the band wagon last week, maybe they were just "expecting more" from their team.
