That is all great and everything, but if you don\'t remember the Saints are 7-7 and mostly likely will not make the playoff. So I guess we are the best average team out there.

We lost several key games early to mid season due to the fact the Saints have been out coached. We wait until the season is on the line to produce. I’ve always said our coaching is pitiful. AB’s game is what we saw Sunday night. If we had started the season like that we would have been in the thick of the playoff hunt. Now we are wishing and hoping for a berth. The Saints coaches are directly the blame

The only stat that means anything, and Deuce will back this up, is the wins vs the losses.

LMAO -- :P

We have some angry fan\'s out there. I with y\'all though. Wins are the only thing that matter. Just posting some \"interesting facts\"

I hope we make the playoffs next year, cause it\'s basically over this year.

1. But we were 1-5 over the previous 6 games.

2. Easy enough when you have Deuce hitting the holes for 5 yards a pop on 1st and 2nd downs.

3. Easy when you are 3rd and 1 or 3rd and 2, thanks to the running game

4. We should- we have better players on our team than the Cowboys do.

5. Where do we rank in touchdowns?

6. Teams tend to stick with running the ball, when it works.

7. Alot better than last year.

8. Not touching this one

9. or this one

10. or this one

11. or this one

12. Yeah, baby, kick that ass!!!

Stats mean a lot of things.
\"Stats are meaningless\" is a macho cliche used incorrectly too often.
Stats can tell you where many of your problems lie.
If stats were meaningless how could you identify areas that need to be addressed, and areas that don\'t?

Stats tell me we probably don\'t need to draft a RB in the 1st round.
Stats tell me Brooks has played pretty good.
Stats tell me Brooks needs to work on holding on to the ball.
Stats tell me early injuries probably cost this team a playoff spot.
Stats tell me we need to work more on pass protection.
Stats tell me our linebackers aren\'t making enough plays.
Stats tell me our WR\'s drop too many balls.

Stats tell me this team is indeed improving.
Stats tell me this team needs to improve more.

WTF does \"the only stat that matters is 7-7\" mean?
Since we\'re 7-7 should we replace the whole team?

Does Deuce McAllister suck?
Should we replace him?
After all we\'re 7-7 aren\'t we? And thats the only stat that matters! Cut the loser!
