Don't throw in the towel just yet...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; History tells me that we don't throw in towels, that is the team from Pittsburgh. Unfortunately we are known for our bags which I hope I never see again. Glad this thread came back up because I do see hints ...

History tells me that we don't throw in towels, that is the team from Pittsburgh. Unfortunately we are known for our bags which I hope I never see again. Glad this thread came back up because I do see hints of execution on the D. and against all odds we could have an interesting run.

It's the players we have too slow, or just lack of talent all together.
The only ones I would keep as of right on on d Greer, and Lofton as a starter. Some others would keep for a back up.

But I will never throw in a towel on this team, I never have before and will not start now.
I still don't know why people continue to beat this dead horse. I don't think lack of talent is the issue here. Shanle has already been replaced in the starting lineup so that issue has already been addressed. He's best suited as a backup and that's exactly where he's at... finally.

Cam Jordan is having a well above average year. Jenkins has always has the talent to be one of the best starting FS's in the league. Roman Harper is a Pro Bowl SS... he's actually been average to solid this year in coverage. We have a good although struggling corner in Greer. Lofton is a solid MLB. Vilma looks pretty good on the outside as does a healthy Casillas. Bunkley was a #1 DT when we signed him from Denver. Patrick Robinson flashes brillance at times and looks like a deer in the headlights the other times... but talent is not the issues with him. Tez Wilson has flashed plenty of pass rushing potential and Galette is a solid backup. Will Smith is still average to solid.

Lack of talent is not the issue. Getting them to play at a consistent level is... and that's on both the coaches and the players.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Don't throw in the towel just yet...

I was listening to the sports talk radio this morning and an interesting fact was made.

The question was; what team has the best chance of running the table?

The answer was NE. over the last 2 years NE is 17-0 during the second half of the season.

Do any of you know who has the second best record during the second half of the season?

Answer: Our New Orleans Saints 15-2

I found this very uplifting.
