Lets Clear The Bandwagon!!

Honestly the Pre-Brees years of watching Saints football has prepared me for this year. I say WHO DAT!! Who dat jumping off our wagon!! Not me. I used to go into seasons expecting a few wins, upsetting the teams that were supposed to beat us etc etc.

Now, we are the worst team in the league..we are what our record is right?
Well now we can clear all the wagon riders, we get our team back, and next year when Sean is back ....there will be no room to jump back on.

Im still going to root every week like I have the last 20 ish years, and if we only win one freakin game, it better be a game that we ruin someones playoff chances.You old timers know what im talking about!!!

WHO DAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Lets Clear The Bandwagon!!

I'm too young to talk about the 60's-80's I really started following them in the mid 90's. I'm a Saints fan. N.O. is my home town and that's my home team. I know nothing else but Saints football. If this ship is going down this year I'm going down with it. Who Dat!!!!!!

Re: Lets Clear The Bandwagon!!

hmmm... little mixed metaphor here. Is it a bandwagon or a ship? Well, I'm not jumping off either one. and neither is the band. So I say, "Fire up the sousaphone and let that trumpet wail." - even if "When the Saints Go Marching In" is played at a more somber tempo. I have heard it played that way before. and if that's what I have to dance to - then dance I will.

Afterall, we are world famous for dancing at a funeral.

I'm still in just storing my gear for the rest of the season like the player have done. If they don't want to get thiers dirty why should I.

Re: Lets Clear The Bandwagon!!

I partially agree with you; the Saints are too GOOD a team to be 0-3.

IMO, the worst team in football is the Cleveland Browns; although I doubt Vegas would give you even odds on which team gets its first win before the other!

I still think a 11-5/10-6 season is still possible for the Saints.

If you are a glass half-full fan like me, I see a Saints team that has been in every game and if not for a handful of plays could, (and should) be 3-0 right now.

The defense, believe it or not, IS making improvements each week; they created turnovers yesterday, one of which the offense converted into a TD.
They are also slowly reducing the points scored by our opponents each week: 40, 35 & 34. I know that is so thin it is damn near invisible, but if the defense had prevented ONE score by those teams, we win!

Atlanta has yet to play a division or conference game yet, so their division-leading 3-0 mark is misleading.

I highly doubt that Carolina or Washington will make it to the playoffs, so the Saints probably won't have to worry about losing the tie-breaker to those teams.

I am not willingly to throw in the towel on this season yet; hell the Patriots, Steelers & Broncos are only one game better than the Saints so far!

As the Steelers, Packers and Giants (twice) have shown, all you need to do is sneak into the playoffs and you can win a Superbowl.

Re: Lets Clear The Bandwagon!!

They aren't playing completely horrible. It's not looking good but there is a lot more football left and who knows...we could be at 8-3 tied for 1st come November. We are keeping these games close and that's what I see. Get a win, get some confidence going. If that happens we could see something really amazing start to happen.
