"Here we go again" Saints have no heart under Haz
from Pro Football Weekly after the Titans debacle:
Haslett taking blame to protect the fragile psyche of Saints players
After taking a 27-12 pounding at the hands of the Titans in Week Three, Saints head coach Jim Haslett admitted that he had been outcoached and simply did not have his team prepared to play. WeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢re told Haslett was trying to deflect some of the blame from his team to his coaching staff because there is concern that the teamÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s already-fragile psyche wouldnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t be able to take a week of getting bashed by the fans and media. Insiders suggest that the team lacks heart, as it fails to fight through adversity when it presents itself and instead takes a ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“Here we go againÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬? attitude when the going gets rough. Because Haslett doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t want his team throwing up its hands due to the slow start, he is trying to make people think that he didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t have his team properly prepared to play. The downside of that strategy is that it may lead people to think that Haslett isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t the man to lead the team back to the playoffs.
