Re: why are the saints 0-3?

"A suspect offensive line that appeared to overachieve last season has been manhandled this season, disrupting everything that an offense that was No. 1 in the NFL last season has tried to do".

Hmm, who has been sayin this...

For me, I don't care what you reputation is, how many probowls you've gone to etc. You play like CRAP for 3 games straight, your as* is getting benched.
Yeah I would like to agree with you but sometimes whats sitting behind those players maybe not the answer as well. They may not be ready to go and handle it. We are just screwed until the offseason. If we really are going to do this right we need to take a couple of years and rebuild, not just a quick fix.

It's 3 freaking games!!!! If it goes to 0-7 then start to think about rebuilding. There have been winning streaks in the past where teams have won 10 games in row you know. And the way the NFC looks this year, 9-7 should make the playoffs.

We are only 4 weeks from being 0-7. As far as regular season goes we are 10-9. Thats not very promising either with all the expectation and over-hyped promies we were given. So do you want to take up this conversation in 4 weeks? lol.

I'm still trying to figure out what happened to the O-Line. They were great last year. WTF happened?!?

Marrone is listed as the OC/OLC on the team's website.

Re: why are the saints 0-3?

As I said in another thread, the Saints can't block so the our running game is suffering and so is Brees, if they can somehow figure out how to protect Brees and make some holes the running game will get better but it starts up front, question is did the bye week give them time to work on the problem.
