Not gave up on them in my heart, but I was like "Okay, I've seen enough of this to know where this is headed" and just kind of patiently tuned out on Sundays for a couple of years until there was a coaching change (who I knew would then change the QB). I did however just happen to turn on the TV randomly, in the middle of a game, just in time to see the famous backwards pass
Don't feel bad. In 2005, I got so sick of Aaron Brooks & Jim Haslett that I went temporarily insane, committed BnG boardicide and went turncoat to the Panthers for a season. I even bought a Delhomme Panthers jersey!

Luckily, the Saints FINALLY showed Brooks & Haslett the door following that awful year. And I quietly came crawling back. Still embarrassed about that one, and I don't embarrass easily!

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

I thought PT was glass and would last one season
I wanted Culpepper over Brees
Mike Ditka would lead us to a SB
Danny Wuerffel would be the best QB since Archie
We should not have let Turley or Glover go.

Great thread BTW

6 years ago, I didn't want some cast off coach from the Cowboys.

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

1. I thought PT was a waste of a roster spot (love him now, best RB in the league on screens)
2. I thought Aaron Brooks could get us to the promised land at one point
3. I was legitimately excited about Tebucky Jones
4. I thought Reggie would be a Pro Bowler every year
5. I was on the Jason David bandwagon big time before he actually played haha

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

1. I thought Boo Williams would become one of the best TE's in the league
2. Same goes for Cam Cleeland
3. I loved the Wuerffel draft pick thinking this guy is just a winner.
4. After the Mario Bates - Lorenzo Neal fight I couldn't wait til Neal was punted out. Turns out the wrong guy got tossed.
5. Thought Renaldo Turnbull was gonna be the next Reggie White.

Hoping and thinking in regards to the Saints is something I have learned to avoid.

It will be what it will be.

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

I thought the Dome Patrol was strong enough to get us at least TO a Super Bowl.

I thought Morten Andersen would retire a Saint.

I thought Archie would somehow find a way for one of his sons to finish what he helped to start.

I thought we would blow out the Seattle Seahawks and repeat, even with a weak defense and wounded offense.

I thought Mark Ingram would be Rookie of the Year last year.

Forgot all about him. I thought the same.

I thought Irv Smith was going to be a Pro Bowler also.

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

I thought billy Joe hobert was the qb of the future.

I thought Ricky was worth everything da coach gave up for him

I thought cie grant was bound for stardom (did anyone not fall for that one?)

I thought picking deuce was a total garbage pick and bemoaned it clear up until he broke off that 50 something yard run for a td his rookie year

I thought Joe horn probably wouldn't make the team

Re: The Official: Time to 'fess-up' THREAD...

Well ok... Ill play along:

I thought Seattle would have been crushed.
I thought Tampa bay would have been crushed.
I thought Garrett Hartley would have made a 29 yard field goal.
......

Then I stopped thinking and hoping.
