It's funny, because I was just talking about this to my brother yesterday.

I can't stand the chants. The reason? Because I know that in order for him to do that he first has to spend some time thinking about it, making it up, memorizing it, whatever...then he has to take the time to teach the rest of the team. Tell me that doesn't sound like a cheerleader practice.

Sure, it's a little bit like cheerleader practice. But the important part of it is the "leader" in cheerleader. He leads the team. If he spends a little bit of time working out the chants for the team, it's probably time well spent... it can help motivate the team (because maybe the big paychecks don't?). Whatever it takes to win, I say.

Now, the chant last year sucked... maybe they should have reused the one from the '09 season?

I think the defense is just becoming where GW envisioned it to be, and that is a hard thing to play against.

So they are going to struggle on offense sometimes in practice. But its going to make them better, and more able to win games against other great defense we play this year like packers/bears/failclowns/bucs/and yes Rams.

I like that Brees and the offense is struggling. We have had the #1 rated offense sense 2006, most will admit, and I think we are better on offense than we have ever been. So that means our defense is finally catching up and GW has a lot of the players he wanted ( you never will get all of them).

Failure is the mother of success, my dad always said. Let them struggle in practice and learn how to play a great defense. So when we play the packers , Brees and the offense will be ready for #2 ranked defense last year, and show the packer fans how lucky they where Not to face a healthy Saints team in the playoffs.
The more I read this argument, the more I am swayed by it. If you think about it, if Drew wasn't having a "bad camp" then we would have to talk about how the defense is having a "bad camp" because Brees and Co. was shredding them. Doesn't mean they are actually bad in the grand scheme of the NFL, it just means they aren't the best unit on the team right now, which I think is exciting because our Offense is REALLY good.

The way Drew plays, he needs to get in sync with to OL. They have a new Center and now a new starter at RT. So he needs to get a good feeling with them, if your not comfortable you going to throw some bad passes. So hopefully by the start of the season the OL will get it together and get in sync with Drew.

I remember a couple posters saying something didn't look right with Brees last year, and thought he might be hurt. They were beaten about the head and neck area relentlessly. Turns out there was something wrong with Drew last year.

Its obviously too early to draw any conclusions, but I'm not gonna just dismiss the posiibility that he's not at 100% right now either.
