Re: It's Official, '07 Saints worst Saints Team Ever!

The coaching was very naive. Look I am sure that I am not one of the best educated on American Football. But the Saints were not playing the basics well, and were oh so predictable. I was calling it in the Chat room.
1st down Reggie rush
2nd down pass.
I checked the playbook.
11 times that was the play for the 1st 2 downs.
22 plays in all out of how many.
Sheesh! Who needs a New England type spy to work out the Saints? Maybe our coaches do.

Mind you, our wonderful coach did fool me with the Weatherford 4th down play. And he also fooled me by not punching a second TD via Karney. Karney did it the first time. Heck if it works why not go again? Nah! mess it up until that dark subconscious of doom surfaces - (Night)Mare.

Tell me - in professional sports - what do you do if you are injured to the extent you will underperform to the detriment of the team? YOU DO NOT PLAY. Stand the Saints organization and explain Mare. If the guy wasn't injured, then he is bloody useless. Missed how many this season? 4 out of 7 or am I exaggerating. Where is this strong leg?

I cannot believe that Carolina got the "W" today. Carolina never played. The Saints, oh the Saints. We gave it to them. And I really do not understand why.

Oh sure, we have talent. Not quite as much as some would like to believe. Colston at WR, then who else? OK at RB we have options but they are poorly utilized. Poor Reggie. No need to waste him. We have others - just tell them to step up. The O-line - you are our weakest link. Or is our secondary the weakest link? Anyways, as I said we do have talent but not SB calibre. And for that I point to the organization and ask what was done to improve the areas of need.

Small rant over

Re: It's Official, '07 Saints worst Saints Team Ever!

Worst...... nah you must not have been a saints fan to long this isn't the worst saints team..... there have been some horrible years this team has had..... One thing I have noticed Drew Brees isn't playing good at all now the line hasn't been too good this year but today Brees wasn't making good throws the 1st int. the 2nd wasn't his fault.... and I have been wondering why saints haven't been playing henderson too much this season well he got a chance today and now i know why...... I thought the D did good today i think our offense is the worst on this team the D is better IMO maybe Payton should let somebody else to the play calling and how about we give those draft picks some playing time on the line it can't get much worse....

I just want a pass rush... Is that so hard to find.... Apparently....

And I mean that from an overall talent perspective and overall expectations, that 1 - 15 team didn't have the talent or the expectations as this team. And Euph, I'm dissapointed as hell in my home town team, but that don't mean I giving up on them, I've been doing this for a long, long time, and I will be doing this for a long time to come. You won't hear that bag talk for this fan, but I will be venting some frustration, you better believe that my friend, so please don't get it twisted.

It's hard to buy a jersey, hard to know how we feel etc. because we loved this team so much last year, and this year it's like they can do almost nothing right.

I think that's what BlackSaint is trying to say. I think the thread should be named "most disappointing Saints Team ever..."

But I also agree, how are we going to win 1 single game playing like this? I just don't see anyone playing with this much inconsistency in the NFL.
To use a line from The Waterboy ... "Oh no, we suck again."

"NL" South? This isn't baseball.

It's just a Sophomore Slump.

I see it in every aspect of life.

It's like the Freshman 10 or the Senior Scam. Write off this year, collect high draft picks and get on to 2008.

A statement like that says you are a young pup. You have no idea of what a truly bad team is.

It's been a long time since Ive been called a young pup. But you guys are missing my point. So let's analyze this for a second, this is the same exact offense that led the league in total offense with 6,264 yards, #1 in passing yards (4,503), #1 in passing yds. per game (281.4), fourth in TD's (49), fifth in points (413) and points per game [25.8], along with 330 first downs. This is the same team that went to the NFC Championship Game, won the NFC South and had a freaking first round bye. Now this exact same offense with a new pass catching TE has a total of 5 TD's in 4 games, a 2006 Pro Bowl, All Pro and second in MVP voting QB with 1 passing TD and 9 interceptions in 4 games. This same offense haven't scored more than 14 points in any of their games this season and have been blown out of each game except one (Carolina) in which the offense had several chances to run away with the game and couldn't even score three points to put the game away. Now I know that this is not the worst overall team in our history (duh), but no team in our history has ever accomplished so much the year before and look so inept and pathetic the next, hell excluding the Mora era, we never had nowhere near the talent that this team possess. Even when you add in the Mora era , we still had to over come an extremely predictable offense, the Joe Montana-Steve Young led 49ers, the Jim Everett led Rams, and those crazy ass Jerry Glanville led dirty birds of Atlanta to even come close to the expectations of this version of the New Orleans Saints. So again, FROM THE TALENT AND EXPECTATIONS aspects of this team, this is the worst team in our history, this is just my opinion and only mine. I just never seen a team that did that much the year before and accomplish absolutely nothing the next year, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Forget about in our history, but in the history of the NFL, I just don't remember a team dropping down this far without any major injuries or changes to the overall starting personnel(and they looked really bad before the injury to Deuce), so I hope I cleared it up for a few of you guys out there. Again, the reason that I think this is the worst Saints team ever is that they were suppose to be the best team we ever had in the history of our franchise.
