Anybody else about ready to pack it in?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I've been a Saints fan for most of my 30 years on this earth but I think I'm just about done. I was stupid enough to get my hopes up again, but it's becoming more and more clear to me ...

Anybody else about ready to pack it in?

I've been a Saints fan for most of my 30 years on this earth but I think I'm just about done. I was stupid enough to get my hopes up again, but it's becoming more and more clear to me this is just the latest chapter in a long, long, LONG line of disappointments.

Call it a curse, destiny, fate, whatever you want. But nothing has ever changed, and nothing ever will.

I'm not mad, I'm not really upset. I've just checked out emotionally. I am getting married in a couple months and moving to the Midwest, and I honestly think it'll be a relief to leave all of this behind me. It's just not healthy. Maybe I'm being a bad fan or whatever, but it's not worth my personal well-being to keep doing this to myself.

I'll stick it out through the rest of this season but I'll be happy to move on to a Saints-less existence. I just can't do it anymore.

Kudos to all you guys who choose to keep sticking it out. You're made of sterner stuff than I am.

Nah...I'll be a lifer with the Saints. If it's one thing the Saints have taught me in +30 years is that nothing is a given. Bless you, Saints, you never fail to disappoint.

You are done with a 13-2 team but you stuck with them through the crap? We won't miss you.

I know exactly what you mean. I've been a fan for 40+ years. I thought I had reached a point where they could never fool me again. But they come out and look like the best team in the league for 13 games then roll over and play dead against a pathetic team like the Bucs.

This is the NFL. Any team can lose any week. Still no excuse for our poor play.

It's just going to make the joy that much sweeter.

I'm sticking with us until the final whistle of our last game - whenever that game might be.
