I Can't Be Alone ...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; First things first --- I've been a FAN since age 4 ... That's 29 years, so save your "bandwagon fan" comments. Okay, am I the ONLY one who doesn't see us as having real problems? The offense is sluggish, Brees ...

I Can't Be Alone ...

First things first --- I've been a FAN since age 4 ... That's 29 years, so save your "bandwagon fan" comments.

Okay, am I the ONLY one who doesn't see us as having real problems? The offense is sluggish, Brees looks pretty average, the D has issues, etc, etc, etc. We look NOTHING like last year ... NOTHING. I know we all LOVE the Saints, but is it time to be real about what is going on with this team?

I fear that all the interviews, book writing, parades, etc in the offseason have taken a bigger toll than any of us (including the players) expected ... We've made Favre, Smith, Ryan (who is pretty good) AND Clausen look A LOT better than any of them actually are. (Keeping in mind that Favre is 40+) I'm just confused ... We are 3-1 and there is NO NEED to panic, but honestly ... Don't ugly wins eventually lead to ugly losses?

I'm just irritated.

3-1. Should be 4-0. Cleanup the turnovers. Get Thomas, Bush, and Sharper back. Hope somehow Ingram will contribute at OLB. No team in the NFL has looked lights out. I've certainly seen worse in my 40 years as a fan. LOL.

You're not alone. Something is wrong. Maybe it's the dreaded Super Bowl hangover. I don't know. I, too, am happy to be 3-1 with the way we've played. We are a chip shot field goal away from being 4-0. But at the same time we are a play or two away from being 1-3 or 0-4. It's not time to panic but I'm starting to feel juuuuuust a tiny bit uneasy.

You're absolutely right, but I believe our issues are able to be corrected, and that is what gives me hope

There's alot of us that feel the same way but we could be 4-0 and if we hadn't gone for that damn field goal against the Falcons, but you're right it could be alot worse and we've been lucky

the offense seems sluggish and something is missing thats for sure. i hate to say it but i'm starting to wonder if there isn't something wrong with drew's arm. we have not been taking shots downfield and his passes don't look as crisp as they have been in previous years.

that being said, we're 3-1, so there's no need to panic. it's not important to be playing your best football in sept and october. there is a lot of room for improvement to be found, starting with dropped passes. i don't believe that our problems aren't fixable. its a long season and we'll get better.
