need a couple of days to get over this first.... But I did post on that "other" board a bit of perspective.... I think we are still in the Golden Age of Saints football.... Drew is very much in his prime.... young stable of RB's, WR's, 3 Pro Bowl OL...holes to be filled on defense to be sure.... but who on here does not trust Loomis/Payton to make the moves necessary to fill those holes....

I think we are the best team in football right now and that is what hurts so much... I think we will be the best team in football next year... As we saw yesterday that does not always translate into success...

I think next year this team will relaize you have to play every game in the NFL.... I dont think we will lose to the likes of St Louis and Tampa Bay... a win in either of those would have meant this game was in the dome....

So thats my perspective.... im gonna lick my wounds for a few days and then begin to focus more on next year.... but I'll leave it at this... I really do EXPECT to be the first to host a SB

I hate to say it, but I think next year is an off-year for us.

We're going to have at least one, if not two, changes to the coaching staff, we'll probably lose a few players in free agency, and we don't have a draft pick until the second (third?) round.

With the cap issues we already have, I don't see us making any moves to bring in big-time defensive talent and with the losses we may have on offense, I don't see record numbers again to make up for the defensive deficiencies.

I know SP is a genius and with Drew we always have a chance, but I don't see us being better than middle of the pack next year.

I really hope I am wrong...
