Seahawks Opponent Preview – New Orleans Saints

Overview: Following the 2000 season Jim Haslett was, to steal a line from James Cameron’s “Titanicâ⠂¬?, the “King of the Worldâ€?. At the very least he was King of Carnival in the “Big Easyâ€?. He had just led the Saints to a division title (the old NFC West) and the first playoff win in franchise history.

Expectations were high for the budding juggernaut that thrilled fans with tough defense and a big-play offense.

The luster of that great 2000 season wore off when the team went 7-9, 9-7 and 8-8 the following three seasons. Great starts were followed by inexplicably terrible endings in each season, resulting in missed playoff opportunities and angst among the Saint faithful.

If you’re looking for the coach on the hottest seat in the NFL, look no further than head Haslett. The former linebacker has assembled a great staff, plenty of playmakers on offense, and a talented defensive line Yet each year they are, by many accounts, the NFL’s number-one underachievers.

Franchise stability is also in question as the Saints are fighting with the city over improvements to the Superdome to help generate revenue and there is a possibility within the next few years they could be looking to move.

No doubt about it, 08. We have been underacheiving for too long. We\'ll see what happens this year .. If they do it again.. have me a glass of that 08er-aide wating. Maybe I can chase it down with some WhoTang.

I tell ya what though. I\'ve gotta have some payback with Seattle. I want blood!! I still have bad memories from that game.

I also remember some Seahawks fans coming over here and talking a lot of trash. I\'m sure we\'ll be hearing from them before the first game. Revenge is sweet!!! :exclam:

Not quite sure what \"Rhodes dismantled McCarthy\'s game plan\" is supposed to mean. Saints outgained Seahawks in that game 377 yards to 288 yards in total offense. The story of that game was the Saints defense surrendering two long TD drives along with a \"short field\" (38 yards) TD drive before the Seattle defense gave up a long TD drive of their own in the fourth quarter. Once Howard went out early the Saints couldn\'t get the Seahawks off of the field on third down.
