Well, I think this is one topic we can all agree on. Even if SOMEONE tries to take away our fandom, and trade us to other teams for expressing ourselves. They almost seem bored out there at times to me. It's like there isn't that same spark anymore, no fire. I don't know.....

Well, I agree strat. But something else to consider, is that just like this team, we've never been in this position before, defending superbowl champions. New ground for saints nation as a whole.

Here's my problem with that theory though. We play the AFC North this year. Pitt, and Baltimore, both have BEASTLY defenses. Cincy, and Cleveland, are no slouches on that side of the ball either. We make these same mistakes when we play them? We could easily lose all four games.

I'm with you C17. I remember a time when we would lose games like that on a regular basis. I know we can play better than this. I don't know what is happening offensively. If there is some miscommunication between Brees and our receivers, who knows. We can sit here and analyze what's wrong with the team until we are blue in the face. I am happy that we are 3-1, but the next 12 games are going to be an uphill battle if the team doesn't improve.

I just wonder that because we finally won the Superbowl last season after spending so many years trying to win it, does the team have the same desire to go an do it again.

I'm sure they have the desire to try and win it again, but is it with the same intensity, the same passion, the same need, the same hunger?.

Winning the Superbowl for the first time in club history was the thing everyone wanted, well now we have done it.

It maybe hard on some occasions for the coachES to try and fire the team up and get them to play with the same desire and drive as last year now that they already own the ultimate prize.

Just a thought!

GEAUX SAINTS!

Week1=UGLY, Week2=UGLIER, Week3=UGLIEST, Week4=OOOGLY.
There are real problems that have to be fixed if we are going to be positioned for post-season success. There are things that are beyond our control and many things that we can actually do something about. O-line looked a little better this week. D-line and linebackers still have issues. Our corners and safeties can't continue to be our leading tacklers each week: injuries are going to continue to plague us if it continues. Mental mistakes are eating us alive. I am not impressed at all rolling the dice for wins each week.

My sentiments exactly. You could see a difference in play calling last year once we were slotted for the playoffs. I told everyone that had doubts that, I believed, SP had an 'A' playbook and a 'B' playbook. It feels as though he's got the 'B' playbook out again.

One thing I am happy about...we're 3-1 and we haven't even had a breakout game yet.

There are obvious issues I have noticed like Bree's being a bit off... Drops we have had... which isn't new for this team.

I think what we are seeing is the same team over the last few years. Nothing new though.

I don't think people realize dispite our record last year we were in some crazy games that finished crazy. We are the very same team as we have been. I am surprised you guys don't realize this.
