So what made everyone think we would be ok this season without coach?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm kind of amazed honestly at everyone's meltdown. Coach Payton has his job for a reason. If we weren't sucking and we were in fact clicking along like the last couple of years I'd kind of wonder why he did ...

Head Coach's have their job for a reason. It's that simple.

I truly thought the defense would improve, even without Sean. Boy was I wrong.

I truly though we have enough talent and that with Drew's leadership the offense would be at least okay without Sean. Boy was I wrong.

Hey man- apparently you are right. I miss the guy, even if we had won I would have wanted him back. All that said, hey I hope we find a way to salvage the season. Doesn't look likely, but I'll be a fan no matter what

Re: So what made everyone think we would be ok this season without coach?

For me its simple. I've heard NUMEROUS times that the NFL is about players, not coaches. Even the morons in the studio said "coaches coach and players play" meaning don't blame the coaches for the players stinking it up.

I've always thought coaches had more to do with a teams success than many thought, but apparently I under-estimated my own opinion greatly.

Drew isn't nearly the leader I thought he was. He's just an important cog in Sean Paytons well oiled machine. Ditto for his assistant coaches.

Sean is officially the HMFWIC!

I was very angry at this game..... Offense shut down in the second half, and the defense shut down before the game started..... Brees looks lost out there..... Sean Payton is definately missed....

Honestly I think no Coach Sean Payton is breaking our back, but it's no Joe Vitt or Payton for six games that is really what's killing us RIGHT NOW. The combo of the two missing head coach and assistant coach = headless chicken running around.

Beer, whiskey, other things I want mention, dilusional, dumb, mentally challanged, take your pick why. Benson hired one he!! of a coach in Payton. Brees looks ordinary without him, the O-line looks undiciplined and the D needs help, make no mistake Payton makes the Saints tick without him this is what we are.

Me too. A lot of us were saying how bad the D was last year. Compared to this year, I think I would take last years D any day. I just can't understand how they can be this bad. We upgraded the LB position, which was a HUGE problem last year and yet we still have a terrible D. I give up on them until I see an improvement.
