nono.... he said the most "disappointing" loss. We've been blown out, and we've blown big leads, of course, but he said "most disappointing," and I can see it being true. The Rams loss in December '83 would have given us our first winning season, and a playoff berth, but the Rams were good. Same deal for the Dolphins game in late '86. The Viking playoff game in '87 was pretty sorry too, but again, we didnt start off 13-0.

This one would have meant top seed in the Conference. We combined a 1. blown lead 2. to one of league's worst teams, 3. at home 4. win makes you top dog. 5. A successful kick from our idiot kicker starts a huge party throughout the city.

I am most disappointed, yes.

... and Bobby has lived Saints history.

Couldn't agree more. This was undoubtedly a tough loss. Worst ever? C'mon. The Saints are still in the playoffs, they still have a first round bye, they still have HFA throughout the playoffs until they play poorly again. What the Saints lost in this game is just a game and a chance to be named something they are not -- the top-seeded NFC team. I have seen countless low moments for this franchise. To call this the worst is a temper tantrum that will cool down if and when the Saints right their listing ship.

Bobby Hebert's article is overreaction in its purest form, typical of Bobby Hebert. At the beginning of the season, he had them picked as a Super Bowl contender. Another overreaction. He dreams too big, so he is hugely disappointed. Calm down, Bobby. You're out of control.

Re: Hebert says it well

Hopefully 1-3 in December doesn't lead to a one and done in January.

Re: Hebert says it well

I have not been a big Hebert fan but he just did a realistic analysis of where are as a team. We will not survive the playoffs playing like we did against TB. It will be one and done. We, as Darren Sharper said, have lost that sense of urgency. Call it urgency, call it mojo, depend on our gris gris the bottom line is we are not playing with heart like we did in the first 13 games. Something fundamentally went wrong after the NE game. It was like that game was our Super Bowl, like we had nothing to prove after that game.

Hey Goodell . . . This year we will kick ass for free!

Re: Hebert says it well

On a related note, I got a special autograph from The Cajun Cannon himself yesterday. I have had 2 copies of this SI cover for about 19 years.



So I went to Deanies for the Point After. My wife & I had just bought some pretty stuff from Royal St, and I thought I'd give it a try on the way back, so I snaked my way through the people-jam. The WWL promotions man liked my SI Cover, and gestured that I'd be next, and also commented on how polite me and a girl standing next to me were.

As a radio guy myself, I can say Bobby is outstanding. How he can concentrate, make his points, interact with fellow commentators and listeners, keep his stats & notes together with all those drunk people hollering at him & trying to distract him is amazing. Remember he's not an English major or trained speaker--- he's a quarterback. He does all this, and remembers not to cuss!

Not to mention, he's actually fairly photogenic. I wont call him a leading man type, but I'm guessing Hebert's never had trouble getting a date. Again, he's not a model, he's a quarterback, but you could have done worse. He could look like the Ft. Hood Jihadist. He could look like Elway. Bobby's aging well, and chicks dig him.

And I still say Hebert is probably the best match for a listening demographic you could ask for--- He sounds like Louisiana sports.

I would say to his detractors, grab a mic & see how you sound. See how you deal with people, live, with 1 million critics listening. I'll bet you'd choke like Garrett Hartley.

Anyway, the little 20 yr. old cutie next to me is getting a nice jersey signed, and tells me she loves Hebert. I say, "Yeah, he was an awesome player," and she says, "He played?" People, she's 20, ok? She's one year older than my magazine cover, so take it easy. As I told her a little Saints history, every other 20-something nearby wanted to see the magazine cover. They were "wow"ed. None of them had ever seen it. They wanted to know when it came out. I wanted to pat them on the head & give them cookies. so cute.

And then I was up front, waiting for the station break. I stood in place & tried to not do anything annoying. One guy actually touched his hand-written notes, and I wanted to slap him, but Bobby didnt seem fazed, patient, as if he were babysitting small children. So when the break came, I asked him to sign my cover "to Skymike," which he did, and I complimented how natural his dental implants look, (The front teeth were knocked out in a collision in Tampa with two defensive backs.) He shrugged at first, then realized the incident I was speaking of, which brought a smile. I asked him if he remembered the hit, but he said he only remembers the locker room afterward. I told him how excited we were after the USFL folded, when he announced his interest in the Saints, then gave a polite fist bump, and said "thanks."

It was cool to meet Bobby Hebert and let him know a lot of us remember and appreciate him. As someone who is sometimes asked to autograph things in my own line of work, I can tell you a nice word from people on the street is always enjoyable.

GEAUX!

I gotta give you credit for having passion, and sticking with your belief.
