it is just one kick. it was just one loss.

i have faith and believe in the staff and the team... WAY more than I have faith in some fans.

fairweather fans are not actual fans.
Well I'm not a fairweather fan, trust me. I've basically said "we'll win the superbowl" every year, shook my fist, and continued on for years.

But, it seems, note I said seems, we have a different swagger. I've felt it since pre-season.

Ok How many times and how many languages can you say NOT FREAKING OUT NOT PANICKING. WOW. To say that we are not as aggressive as last year, does that sound crazy.

To me it seems, that when the offense is playing well, the defense slacks off. And when the defense is playing well, the offense seems to slack off. They don't seem to play well at the same time.

In my mind, we are 3-0...but we got penalized 1 game because our kicker all the sudden this year got "Steve Sax disease."

Though never regarded as one of the top fielding second basemen in the league, Steve Sax inexplicably became incapable of making routine throws to first base in 1983, committing 30 errors that season. This is referred to in baseball terminology as "Steve Sax Syndrome", the fielder's variant of "Steve Blass disease", named after the Pirates pitcher who suffered a similar breakdown of basic mechanics. As his accuracy suffered, fans sitting behind the first base dugout began wearing batting helmets as mock protection. (Teammate Pedro Guerrero, an outfielder pressed into service at third base in 1983, once reportedly stated that his first thought whenever he was in the field was "I hope they don't hit it to me," while his second thought was "I hope they don't hit it to Sax.") By 1989, however, Sax seemed to be completely "cured", leading the American League in both fielding percentage and double plays.
I swear the following is true.

After I made my comment, I went to google to see if there really is a term, "Steve Sax disease", and low and behold...there it is. When I went to type it in the search box, I got as far as "Steve Sax di"...and it finished it for me.

OMG let's hope Hartley doesn't have Steve Sax Disease or Knoblauchitis or he won't make it to the bye week.

I think, on the defensive front seven , the problem is a lack of talent. Smith and Ellis are very good on the D-Line. Vilma is a very good. Everyone else is either average, below average, or unproven....or they've proven to be terrible.

I'm worried about:

Anger and extremism as a foundation for political governance.
China manipulating our currency.
Willful ignorance.
Unjustifiable tax breaks for the top 3%.

Porter and Harper's injuries. Those absenses Sunday were the primary cause for alarm. Too many rookies in the defensive backfield made GW's gameplan limited and gave Ryan too much time to pick us apart.

Cover 4. We cannot dominate the line of scrimmage, we cannot defeat the cover 4. Brees needs time, at least 3.5 seconds, to make a 10 yard pass running through progressions, and he's not getting it against a 4 man front. Something is wrong here.

Agreed Xan. It seems everyone is playing the game a little different this year. The defense is a little different this year. Not sure if it is because Sharper isn't back there or if we are really missing Fuji. I'm not going to panic, but it would be nice to have Sharper, Bush and a Fujita clone back.

I think the Saints will start hitting on all cylinders soon. Starting with the Panthers game.
