What happened to humility?
Last year the New Orleans Saints had a good bit of swagger coming out of training camp. But we were also humble. What happened to humility? Even on this board some people seem to think that we are unbeatable. I've heard more smack talk since we won the Superbowl and no one seems to think that we can lose. If I remember correctly we won several close games and had the ball bouncing our way all year long. We were a well coached team with something to prove. Now it seems like the team takes winning for granted and some of our players are talking smack too.
We need to remember the old adage--pride goeth before a fall. :bang:
I'm just sayin'.......

Seeing how we have never been able to talk smack about anything I say let the smack roll as long as you can back it up on the field.

After 40+ years of misery, we're simply not that good at it yet. lol

Let's just hope that the Patriots game was a wake up call.:poke:
My guess is Payton is working to keep the team humble.

I'm not sure this is true. We played poorly. It was preseason.

The offense and defense working on limited playbooks with limited action.

It's the preseason man...

I agree with you Rugby. I think they need to focus on this year. While I focus on '76's avatar.

We can be as cocky as we like, what I think the OP is talking about is the football team.
