Re: Saints' Staff are Gamblers

Nah 504 your fine. you have an emotional feelings on a topic and you let them out. Thats cool. I think we all can handle it. Feel free to vent here if you need. You can even cry if you want. please

Coaches for years have talked about the battle on the field as a war. I am sure that in no way would one of them actual be stupid enough to compare the two equally. It is just a way to get players focused. We all know it two worlds apart. In todays society we have to use terminology very carefully. I full understand the difference in intent of the usages. But I also understand that this understanding does not let me ignore another persons feeling on the topic. I was taught by coaches that used it all my life. They were Vets of WWII, Korea and Nam also. They felt at ease with it then but today they may not. Hmm I might have ask next time I run into a few of the ones that are still alive and see how their view on this has changed, if at all. So in many ways I am in the same boat as you here 504. Old school habits die hard. It is hard for me to become this "sensitive new age male" after so many years of being an insensitive SOB. It does seem to be quick way to loose a lady though. That could be good thing

As for the risks I say go for broke and take both Cinnci headaches on, Chris Henry and Odell Thurman. As long as they sign a play for pay contract. They would be cheap and little or no risk. 1 screw up and off you go. Henry without a doubt is one of the top 5 #3WR in the NFL. Odell has the speed and skills to work at WLB in this league. Then again I think of a wasted roster spot as soon as one or both mess up.

As for wanting it now I fully understand. I was there at the first camp. 1st game and all the crap. I know WIN IT ALL NOW PLEASE, I am not getting younger here so lets get this show on the road.

Re: Saints' Staff are Gamblers

Question is:

Do you prefer not taking a risk such as when Mora was here playing the percentages, teasing us with 10-6 records and never winning a playoff game, but being "respectable" to...

Seeing a chick with a nice rack with a F&#@ Da Eagles shirt, watching a power running back finish off a team in Quarter No. 4, just stuffing the living $#!% of it down the opponents throat and winning a playoff game against a larger market...

Americans take Risks, that's how this country became Great...

While Finks was here picking the talent and Mora was coaching and Sidwell was running the D, that was THEE most impressive team the Saints have fielded. IMO

It was fun watching Deuce beat the Eagles in the playoff game, but the 06 Saints were not the best Saints team IMO.

If you prefer roller coasters, then so be it.

I am more impressed with teams that go to the playoffs year in, year out.

Eagles, Pats, Colts, Steelers and the like.

Hey, call me a conservative.

And Lee Greenwood, please! - He is a nice guy, but he should leave music to musicians.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

Re: Saints' Staff are Gamblers

Well, like the ocean waves, we've passed over an interesting point...

504, you raised an interesting point in brining up the off season moves over our division rivals. I haven't paid too close attention to them, but I was underwhelmed by their performances in the draft. Are there key additions that have you especially nervous, or is it just a general malaise?

JK, I will speak for myself.

This time of year invites malaise.

p.s. your AB quote is my all time favorite!

Right up there with "I am a top five quarterback in this league."

Sidwell was the key under Mora, not so much Jim himself. Remember Mora inherited a ton of talent from Bum Phillips too. Unlike most I do not give Mora that much credit.

yes the playoff game was great but I like the victory against the eagles during that season better. The 8 Minute Drive to win the game was a work of art.

I agree. Conservative takes time. I give this rebuilding thing two more years till we are young enough and deep enough to start thinking along these lines of being a dominate force year in and year out. I still say this going to be a key year to measure how far we have come. I can not wait. Lets see what we got on the bench.

Yes that was a piece of art and we did it to the perfect team. Beatem and kept them beat.
But the philli game was a game that champions must have. drive the ball and eat up the clock. Then put the nail in the coffin as the clock runs out. That is a true test of character. 8 minute drive are you kidding me to win the game. I watch that drive all the time. I still find it unbelievable.

Re: Saints' Staff are Gamblers

RockyMountain, agreed it is the time of year for malaise. Wait until they take the field, and people will settle down.

I like that quote too!

Canton, it was just an homage to the poetry of the thread... smile.
