Why did this happen?

Everyone made some very good point. Here\'s my take.........


I don\'t buy the not being in shape excuse thing. When I look at last year, what I see is that the offense wasn\'t as effective in most of those games, for what ever reason, which made us rely on our defense. What happened is the defense was exposed for what they were. Which was a defense that had a lot of players that were lacking in speed and talent.

When I look at the offensive break downs of last year, I see the injurys to Brooks and Duece as major factors. The coaching staff could have been more creative in their play calling and schemes.


For the most part I think the saints defense will be much beter this year. The offense will be very explosive, barring injurys.

Saints 13-3 this year.


If ya scared say ya scared !!!

When your defense is as bad as it was, then it never leaves your opponents out of a game, especially in the fourth quarter. Also, youth has a lot to do with it.

Let\'s review our offense, shall we?

Aaron Brooks:1999
Deuce Mcallister:2001
Terrelle Smith:2000
Joe Horn:1996(although didn\'t really have a season til 2000)
Donte\' Stallworth:2002
Lecharles Bentley:2002
Spencer Falauo:first year player for New Orleans

basically the only vet on the offensive side was Jerry Fontenot and Jerome Pathon, a center and a number 3 receiver. This is one of the reasons many columnists believe that it will be a couple of years before the Saints get to where they need to be, and sadly they may be right. When you have a young team with little experience it\'s tough to come up big in crunch time.
