Forecast: 2012 Saints arenít going anywhere special

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; As bleak as things seem to be right now, he's essentially throwing in the towel after two games. I don't care if some of those things make sense... it's been two games. That's ridiculous. If you're going to call it ...

I don't care if some of those things make sense... it's been two games. That's ridiculous. If you're going to call it a season after two games, you're better off being a Falcons fan.

Well, speaking for me and only for me, I think he's pretty much telling it like it is. We can choose to base it on the potential we all know we have, but if we're looking at the evidence provided thus far, bleak is pretty fair.

He's making plenty of realistic points... I don't have an issue with that. Calling it a season is a whole different story.

Re: Forecast: 2012 Saints arenít going anywhere special

... when they go 0-16, shoot me a PM (Mr. Marbrough). Yeah, the Saints have had more then their fair share of ups & downs, but you haven't truly 'lived' until your team loses 'em all, .

I'm still in the frame of mind that it's not Kansas City 0-2, Cleveland Browns 0-2, Jacksonville Jaguars 0-2, or even Oakland Raiders 0-2 ... there's still light at the end of that tunnel for New Orleans ... just imagine if you were 0-2 and had wasted a first round pick to have Brandon Weeden taking snaps for ya' ... there's some fans that should be singing the blues, ... the NFL is a funny place; the Cardinals are 2-0, the Jets are atop their division, the Eagles have won 'ugly' two weeks in a row by one point, St. Louis beat Washington, NE loses on a last-minute 'wide left' field goal attempt (I think Gostkowski even missed the nets!) ... it's 'bizzaro' world, that's for sure.

Don't dwell on the losses (Mr. Marbrough), just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get ready for next week ... you'll live longer, eh?

... this space intentionally left blank ...

I am still optimistic but I am not going to bash somebody because he is speaking the truth.

The Saints could still having a winning season, still make the playoffs, and maybe even still win the Super Bowl and I could write that novel Iíve been thinking about or win an academy award, or run a triathlon. NOT HAPPENING. - another direct quote, typo included (apparently so ready to bash he didn't have time to proofread)

^ ^ ^ ^ THAT IS YOUR TRUTH??? ^ ^ ^ ^

Yikes. That is about the furthest thing from optimism I can conceive

I think the thing that bothers most of us the most, is the lack of passion, the lack of integrity, the lack of pride and the lack of anger. This team is playing timid and that'll get you beat every week.

I was more referring to the things he was saying was wrong with the team, hence the "I am still optimistic part", which would be the part of what he said I don't agree with.

This disturbed me:

The Saints havenít had an interception from a starting safety in 20 games. Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper are what they are and to expect anything different over the next 14 weeks would mean you are lying to yourself.

Sorry Mike, didn't mean to yell.

I'm just frustrated.

Hey, at least we can both agree on your avatar! That pretty much sums up my feelings exactly.
