I am TRULY disappointed

This sunday's game vs the Cons is a defining moment for the 2011 Saints, and this board has virtually no spewing vitriol or meaningful handwringing over how it might play out.

Are we bored? Too much alcohol? Overconfident?

It feels like the week before the Rams.

What is it going to take to get the team fired up if we aren't drooling for feathered carcass?

I think everybody might be tired of getting all worked up, overconfident, and feeling good about a game, just to be kicked in the head. Everyone knows we have the ability to win this game, we, at least I, am approaching this game very cautiosly.

I think the lack of discussion can be attributed to how well both teams know each other. I think we can take overconfidence out of the equation because it's always been a tight good game btw the two teams. Before the Rams game, we along with the media(and Rams fans), were talking about how we were going to annihilate team and tear them a new butt hole.

It's just the calm before the storm.

Also the fact that we have yet to establish our identity.

I think the WHO_DAT Nation is very cautious about this game. We haven't shown yet that we can dominate each and every opponent, and the loss to the Rams is like an dark cloud reminding us about how inconsistent this team has been. In my case...I'm fully aware of the implications about the game...I am, however, flat out worried!

I want to beat them so bad but like most, I am leary. We haven't shown that we can put 2 complete games together. We haven't shown that we can stop the run. We all know what there game plan is going to be. Run, run, run.

This is a tough division. No matter how good any team is, it's always a dog fight. Will the Saints team that made Tampa look good show up or will it be the team that made Tampa look like who they really are?

OK XAN...i will bite...had to get some java in my body..lol...I think we will go in and make a statement...ok the Bucs beat them ..we shut Blout and Freeman down..ran all over the Bucs...

We need to do the same thing..RuN Run Run and then run some more..O-Line you hear that...and keep Drew clean!

Drew needs to to carve them up when he has the openings.. NO INTs Drew!....Receivers need to get open..block down field..

Jimmy Graham needs to step up..this is where he can really help solidify his premier TE status..

Run the screen !..P.T and Sproles can feast on this..

On D our front four needs to own the Falqueens O-Line and knock the crap out of Meggy...he will **** himself...LBs need to gang tackle...if Turner bust threw..hold on and wait for help..just TACKLE!

Our DBs worry me the most here..were banged up..and i hope Johnny Patrick might come in on Nickel D....get his feet wet against some good receivers..i have a feeling with our injuries at the DB spot ..we will need him later this year..

Roman...yes im talking to you...Please dont let T.G school you..pop him when you get a chance and just pressure him off the line to disrupt his timing with Meg...

And M.J...please give us some remember me shots like you have against them in the past... Most important..watch their dirty play and don't get sucked into penalties ..this is a dirty team..let them kill themselves

BRING THE WOOD!...


P.S
Refs...stay out of it and let the Falqueens take their ass whipping...bet on another game!


Saints- 27
Falcons-20

Great plan Strat. I had my java and you saw what I came up with..lol

I am not as worried about our DB's as you though. We know the Falcants game plan. RUN. I am worried more about our inability to stop the run. We are 17th against the run and that stat is skewed by how other teams have to pass to catch up. If we let them get there running game going and get balanced, then your worry about our DB will become true.

I agree...but i think we go into this game trying to stop Turner...and make them beat us with the pass..DBs have to lockdown and play smart...I hope Darren S...comes and helps coach em...come on Benson pay for his flight..
