Saints keeping bad company.

The setback dropped the Saints to 7-8 and eliminated them from playoff contention. It's the third consecutive season the Saints have failed to earn a postseason berth. Only Arizona, Buffalo, Detroit, Jacksonville, San Diego and Washington have also missed the playoffs during that same stretch.
We are in some pretty bad company there. Anyone can say what they want to, but this isn't acceptable. Miss the playoffs one year, with the talent we have...OK, sure, no problem. Miss the playoffs 2-years in a row.........Well, just bad luck. Miss them 3 years in a row.....Ummmmm...............Bad luck or whatever, it's time to get a coach in here that has a lucky rabbit's foot.

Click on link of the rest.............Pretty good article.

Saints keeping bad company.

Is there any scenario (other than the Buffalo rumor, which I think is complete BS) in which Benson and the Saints rid themselves of Haslet?

Someone give me some hope, because as of right now, I think it\'s a lock that he\'ll be on the Saints\' sideline next year.

Interesting Billy - I\'ve been saying this for a while. Glad you finally came around. ;)

The coach that I\'ve most compared Haslett to (at least privately) is Wannstadt. Same kind of situation. One playoff appearance in 4 years, plenty of talent to compete, but it seems like they underachieve. Of course, over that time period the Dolphins have been 11-5, 10-6 twice I think and 9-7 once. Not getting in with those kind of records to me is forgivable to some degree. Being .500 over the last three seasons with the talent that the Saints have and the free reign Haslett has gotten to work with in NO is completely unacceptible.
