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

OK, folks. This thread is NOT for the faint of heart.

Give five (5) things you said/thought about the Saints that turned out to be nearly the OPPOSITE of what you thought when it was all done.

Please give NO MORE THAN 5 (...give others a chance to add to the list):

My blunders:

1. I thought that Earl Campbell still had a lot left in the tank, and would help make us a playoff contender. (NOT)!!

2. I thought that Mike Ditka would make the Saints a Super Bowl contender within 3 years. (YEAH, RIGHT)!

3. I assumed that Mike McKenzie would be a "locker room cancer" if the Saints picked him up (because of the problems he had with his contract in Green Bay). (OOPS)!

4. I felt that Steve Walsh would be a "gamer."

5. I thought that DeLa Puente was a horrible center, and would not make the team (...way, waaaaaaay off on that one)!

What's your list? Go all the way back to 1967 if you wish. You can also REPEAT something someone else said, but again, please limit it to five (5).

WhoDat!!!!!

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

I'll keep mine relatively current...

1-I thought Courtney Watson was gonna be the answer at MLB
2-I though Chip Vaughn was gonna stud out
3-I thought Keyou Craver was gonna become a solid starter
4-I thought Olindo Mare was our answer at Kicker.
5-I thought Adrian McPherson would develop better than he did

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

Oh, gosh.
I think I am going to kill your thread right here with one entry, so my apologies

1. I thought the Saints should've drafted Matt Leinart instead of signing Drew Brees because I had concerns over his surgically repaired shoulder.

There. 'Nuff said.

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

I thought Aaron Brooks could be a good QB.
I thought Jim Mora would win a Superbowl.
I thought Drew Brees would stink out the Superdome.
I thought Buddy Dilaberto would live forever.
I thought my cat actually gave a crap about me.

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

I thought Dale Carter was a good signing.
I thought Sedrick Ellis was going to be a beast.
I thought Reggie Bush was going to be a star.
I thought we overpaid for Drew coming off surgery.
I thought our rebuilding process was going to take longer than it did.

I thought FF's cat liked him too.

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

I thought Jason David was going to be the answer at CB (Way off on that one)

I thought Usama Young was going to start at CB and be the answer.

I thought Shawn Rogers was going to be a beast

I thought picking up QBs like Danny Wuerfel and Heath Shuler was going to put the Saints in the driver seat.


Was way off base with any of them. I cant remember all that much in the 80s and 90s rather then thinking those Saints teams were good enough to go to the SB but never got close to doing it.

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

This is an awesome thread, I love the honesty I'm seeing.


Mine:

-I thought Darren Sharper was too old and I didn't really completely know who we were getting as a player when he came to the Saints
-I doubted Pierre Thomas his first year or two, just because I was so used to Deuce
- I totally believed and thought Ditka was gonna do really well, like finally winning us a Super Bowl well
- I was ready to declare Jabari Greer a bust, when he got burned on some long game-winning pass against the Redskins in his first year
- I actually kinda gave up on the Saints in the Aaron Brooks/Haslett era, the Jake Delhomme thing. 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

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

1. After week 5 of the 1993 season, I thought we were going to go undefeated and win the Superbowl.
2. I hated the Deuce McAllister pick.
3. I thought Ditka was going to take us somewhere nice.
4. I thought Ricky Williams and Reggie Bush were going to kill it.
5. I thought Jonathan Sullivan was a waste of two first round picks. (Turns out "waste" was not a bad enough description.)

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

I thought Jim Everett was a good QB
I thought it would take Sean 5 years to build a winner
I thought Jeff Blake was the answer
I thought Kyle Turley was on crack (turns out it was just weed)
I thought Tracy Porter would retire a Saint
