I no longer get my hopes up. I do get MADD at the reality of the situation though.
I get mad, actually its probably a bit closer to furious....but I usually end up laughing at the situation (though its more of that maniacal, I'm going crazy kind of laugh.)

I just noticed lastweek how little Cognac I drink when the Saints aren't playing.

CB I'm right there with 'ya... I manage to make the first home game every year and when you add flight, hotel, dining, drinks, merchandise, casino, etc... it gets way past ugly.

Despite what the organization has shown us for decades, I can't give up on the fact that things will be different "this year". My optimism is fading.

Guess free agency will be the first glimpse into what '08 has in store...

I want to see what Gibbs does if they let him sign better FA and draft defense. I am just wondering thats all.

Gibbs didn't do much in Dallas with Pro-bowl defensive players.

Re: greg williams skins dc let go

I am actually going to take up for Gibbs. Right now, he is coaching out of his element. The Saints need to get him the players that he needs to be successful. That is simply a transformation to the 3-4 scheme that Gibbs works best with. It would take a major over hall, but a major over hall is needed already. Why the Saints played the last two seasons in the typical 4-3 scheme is just beyond me.

With that in mind, remember before he came here The Tuna and Gibbs had just spent two years drafting and signing FA to switch to the 34 defense. So Gibbs only worked with the group for a couple of years. It takes time to build a defense. Right now you are seeing the fruits of his labor. So I am not going to ride anybody out of town just yet. Sean is safe because the two years spent building the offense has worked out great, It is still a work in progress and done yet. So lets see what happens with the defense, now that the offense is ahead of schedule in the rebuilding plan.

Orgeron will help Gibss tremendously. Gibbs as a few have said will never be fired. Gibbs is not a bad DC either and you'll see that once he gets some DB's and DL to help him a bit.
