Anyone else a bit concerned about our offense?

The whole night sucked. One of my many low points as a Saints fan.
Dude! You were there too? I feel better. I had Cowboy fans behind me too talking sh**. But they were friendlier than some of the guys I met from SR.com, whom I tailgated with. Looking back on it, I realize, though nobody said anything negative in my presence, some of them really had a problem with me. Too American, I guess.

My wife and I sat in the South Endzone (by the freeway) and the game was pretty disappointing. I did like getting rained on. Being a Dome fan all my life, its kind of exciting to get weather. I got it twice in San Francisco --- coldest cold I ever felt, sunburned the other time. And in Tampa, it was december in Florida; that was absolutely perfect. But anyway, I remember looking up at the rain thru the stadium lights--- and that was cool.

Everything up before the game was cool--- I like the Independence Bowl. Super-festive carnival atmosphere.... all the media, flocking to Shreveport, like it was the Super Bowl. I thought it was great. This is why all preseason games should be played in secondary cities-- college towns, etc.

I liked the aluminum stands you could stomp, the grass, the Air Force flyover, the whole outdoor thing. Oh, and did you hear the dueling, split crowd chant, "Defense!" "Offense!" that was actually really funny.

I remember Bobby Hebert after the game saying the team played like "garbage." And it took forever to get out of their rodeo parking lot.
How would we know that Sean Payton was merely playing poker face with his
playbook.

A couple of weeks later, on a perfect, cool, clear evening after green day & u-2, Steve Gleason's block broke the Curse, and the most amazing night at that point in the History of us happened.

So thats a story of us being concerned about the offense during preseason.

I was at that game, too. I was wearing my brand new Brees jersey. I also remember some kid nobody had heard of named Colston that had a pretty good game.

Re: Anyone else a bit concerned about our offense?

Jimmy graham and a lot of other starters weren't in New england so I wouldn't use that game as a good example of our offense. I think that game was a test of our defense just like the hall of fame game was a test of our running game.

We always have bad days in camp. We had bad days in camp last year for our offense. Then what happened? We became the #1 offense in the nfl. I've learned that it's unwise to look at camp for signs of how we're doing as a whole.

I agree....I think this seasons training camp's main goal is to install the new defense and intergrate the new defensive players into that system. For the offense its all about repetition getting back on the same page after the time apart from each other.
