The good thing is that it doesn't matter how much points were scored against us... our record is still 0-2.

I hear ya LTF!

Some of you guys really need to look at the money these guys are being paid to be the "Best" in the league.

Grant: Big new contract = not hitting on CRAP!
Thomas: Big contract = FAT and not hitting on CRAP!
Jason David: Big contract = SUCKS and not hitting on CRAP!

I think the guys that want to doomsay, have the RIGHT TO!

This team RIGHT NOW...SUCKS. I know it, you know it, the other teams know it, the world knows it, and the Saints know it.

Am I saying the season is wrote off?????? Of coarse not. The Titans will show us what is yet to come.

Hope springs eternal ... of course ... however, the quality of play leaves much to be desired ... the Oline resembles the levees that broke after Katrina as they can't seem to block for Brees very well right now. If you don't have time to throw, you can't go downfield with the same success as they did last year ... and the new Mr. Toast, #29, is making headlines for the wrong reasons ... Bottom line ... Chicago showed the NFL how to defense the Saints in the NFC finals.... all other teams are following the same blueprint ... As one of the Times-Pic reporters aptly wrote, it's time to see really how good a coach we have and what adjustments will be made.

The Saints will be home next week, maybe that will motivate them some but it won't be an easy task going up against the Titans, no matter where they play them..
Talent? Do you mean Reggie Bush, who falls down flat when he gets a hand-swat from a defender? Bush? Who spends most of his time running from one sideline to the other?

Talent? What talent on the Defensive side of the ball? The Defense is pretty weak, and everybody in the world knows it. The Falcons have a better Defense than the Saints right now.

Talent? Did we upgrade our kicking game by getting rid of John Carney?

For 0-2 teams, playoff chances declining - USATODAY.com

"The cut and paste did not work well but in short a playoff run is likely not in the cards down 0-2...

A look at the 0-2 starts since 2000:
Season-----No. teams------Reached playoffs

2000-------10 teams------------0

2001--------9 teams------------1 (New England, 11-5)

2002--------8 teams------------2 (Pittsburgh, 10-5-1; Atlanta, 9-6-1)

2003--------8 teams------------1 (Philadelphia, 12-4)

2004--------7 teams------------0

2005--------7 teams------------0

2006--------10 teams-----------1 (Kansas City, 9-7)

0-2 teams that have reached the Super Bowl

1993 Dallas Champion

1996 N.E. Runner-up

2003 N.E. Champion"

These guys have not been home in a while. Philly game. Stand behind them and believe and judge them after that. If there is still no fire, no passion, we have a problem. If it's just X&O's that's another thing. I have faith in SP to right this ship and get a string going.

I couldn't agree more. Until we moved in 1999 we had season tickets and needless to say they were easy to come by. We're in the process of moving back and are now on the Season Ticket waiting list and happy to be on it.... it meant the dome was sold out. I'm even happy paying the increased price on 2nd hand tickets as long as there are butts in the seats. This means we have a much better chance of keep the Saints in New Orleans; Goodell would never allow Benson to move the Saints if they're sold out.

What scares me is the Fairweather Fans are going to give up their tickets if the Saints have a bad year.

I currently live in Michigan and everyone knows the Detroit Lions suck beyond belief, but guess what..... all of their season tickets are sold out and have been since we moved here in 1999. Last year the Lions record was 3 - 13 and they still have a sold out stadium. Notice there is no talk about moving the Lions....

If you're a fan than you're a fan NO MATTER WHAT!

Stop your whining and go to the Pep Rally on Friday, support your team and show a little pride. If you don't there could be yet another change coming for the city of New Orleans.... we could be Saints-less. Keep in mind, they're only obligated until 2010.
