I think haz is a good coach, I just don\'t think he\'s the right coach for this team, this team has never rallied around haz or given him their best, young teams like this one need a good amount of motivation, haz doesn\'t seem to have that ability, I think with more veterans like we had in 2000 haz could excel

I hope that he isn\'t fired because i think that would impact the teams morale negatively, the last thing this team needs is more negativity

the more important question here is: who do we replace him with?

My guess is that Haslett and all of the assistants will be back next year. They\'ll go out and sign some free agents, draft a few players, and find some kind of way to spin it............
Billy is starting to sound like me!!

OK, so most everyone thinks he SHOULD go, but probably WON\'T go. Is that right? If that\'s the case, will any of you be excited about the Saints next year? Can they be better than 8-8 or 9-7? Can they compete for a SB?

Yes, I do think they can be better than 8-8 or 9-7. I always have and always will believe that the PLAYERS are more responsible for winning games than COACHES. If Haslett can go out and get some PLAYERS to address some of the weaknesses, then I think it would even be probable. Problem is, I don\'t see that happening. Besides that, I don\'t like some things that I\'ve seen over the past couple of years and I feel that Haslett has no one to blame but himself.

As far as getting excited? I\'ll always be excited when a new season rolls around. Ever known a Saints fan that wasn\'t?

Way back myself and LummOx had a discussion on if players or coaches had more to do with winning. I said that players were more responsible for winning and he said coaches were. Now, I\'m not trying to bring back up that same debate between myself and LummOx, but I was looking at the records of some possible coaching cadidates and one thing I noticed about all head coaches is that once the talent was gone their records suffered. That supports my theory that players are more responsible for wins.

Just for fun, here are some examples :


Jimmy Johnson -- Notice Jimmy wasn\'t NEARLY as successful without ALL that talent in Dallas.

1989 dal | 1 15 0 | 0 0 |
| 1990 dal | 7 9 0 | 0 0 |
| 1991 dal | 11 5 0 | 1 1 |

| 1998 mia | 10 6 0 | 1 1 |
| 1999 mia | 9 7 0 | 1 1 |
+----------+--------------+----------+

Jim Mora -- When the Dome Patrol was gone, so were the winning seasons.

| 1996 nor | 2 6 0 | 0 0 |


Bill Parcells
-- Even the great Parcells couldn\'t get it done without talent. Look at how much his record flucuated during his coaching career. What do you think the reason for that was?

Observations: -- None of those coaches did well when the talent wasn\'t there. As good as those coaches were, not any scheme, or anything else, could get them to the promised land. Now, sure, coaching plays a big part when you have talent, but my point is -- Until we get enough talented players on the Saints, we aren\'t going to do anything no matter what coach we have. So, yes, Haslett can be successful if we have enough talented players.

Billy, let\'s not forget the main player who had more to do with his team winning than the coach...Michael Vick. And that\'s just ONE player vs. a future hall of famer coach.

All I know is Haslett has MORE negitives than he does positives. I said earleir that I couldn\'t think of any positives and I meant it. What are the positives? I suppose you could come up with something.

This team has collapsed at then end of the last 2-years. This year we come out in preseason stumbling, bumbling, fumbling, and it carried right over into the regular season. This team was no more prepared to start the regular season than Iraq\'s army was to face the Americans. You can\'t blame that on the players, that has to go on Jim Haslett. I\'d be real curious to know who Jim Haslett blames.

Who\'s fault are these?

1. Collapsed at the end of 2001 season.
2. Collapsed at the end of 2002 season.
3. Weren\'t prepared to play at the beginning of 2003 season.
4. Have the highest player turnover of any team in the league.
5. Bad offseason aquisitions.
6. Teams aren\'t disciplined.
7. Players don\'t progress under his direction.

He is doing an ok job. I am happy with the teams personel grade overall c+ but we need something to happen on that OL and D. I think he needs to go... I think we need to look at getting rid of a coach every 4 years unless we have a Ring to show for it. The team is to comfortable with just doing there jobs and needs a shake up.

The loss of Zook now looks to have been a death blow to an up and coming team.

Lets go out and get a NEW Defensive Coordinator and rock the boat. I don\'t know what to think about McCarthy. Considering how good the offense plays when AB is playing well I can\'t blame him.
But some how Zook always put a Defense on the field and had success. Venturi has bombed. But the injuries will probably save his job.
One thing I liked about the firey Zook, his defenses played like they wanted blood. Good old fashioned smashmouth football. Venturi may know all the X\'s and O\'s as well as anyone but I don\'t think he can get his players in kill-mode. Zook did.
Venturi will probably stay around because of his knowledge of the game, but we need a Zook type to light a fire under some assses and get them to play like their hair\'s on fire.
Remember the Game Whitehead had where he left everything on the field. Our best defensive effort this year. That kind of effort happened weekly when Zook was here.

Zook + our players + a few key additions = top 10 smashmouth unit.
