Don't get nervous Saints fans
Don't break out the paper bags. Forget about taking your name off of the season ticket waiting list. Quit with all the talk of "there's always next year." Stop with the name calling. You know which one I'm talking about...sounds like "Saints" but without that first letter.
So the New Orleans Saints went out and picked up their second loss of the season on Sunday in Arizona. Yes, it's true that they didn't notch their second loss last season until there was one game remaining in the season, but does it really matter when it happens anyway? This isn't college football where a late loss hurts you more than an early loss.
What happened on Sunday in the loss to the Cardinals should be something opens up the eyes of every single member of the Saints' team and tells them that they need to clean up their act. Something just isn't right so far this season and everyone has been able to see it, but they haven't actually been able to pinpoint it. Maybe it's the running game or Drew Brees isn't up to speed or the defense isn't getting enough turnovers because Darren Sharper isn't out there. Fingers can be pointed in many directions and the blame can be laid wherever you choose, but it all boils down to one thing.

This may be news to some people, but it sure didn't catch me by surprise, and while we may not be in paper bag territory, watching this team - with all the talent on it - play this way, is as frustrating as trying to watch grass grow or cars rust.
If I had access to the bunker, I would have pushed the panic button about 3 weeks ago.
