We have a suckyish defense every year.... actually all of the last 5 years except for one and we didnt have a 100 mm QB then.
It's just the number elite QB's are getting now. Next year someone will be higher. Can't hate him for pushing for his deal. For that matter, with the US 16 trillion in debt, there isn't a whole lot of good $ management anywhere it seems. His holdout was just one brick in the ****ty offseason this year.

Re: Mid Season Evaluation

Bingo regarding Vitt, Kromer & Spags the real Head Coachs are few and far between. If you think a team like the Saints can operate without someone like SP than you are delusional. RG knew what he was doing and the effect the suspensions would have on the team. The agony will continue for this team until next season. Our main achievement at this point will be to knock off Atlanta both games.

Re: Mid Season Evaluation

Here is a thought.. maybe its not Spags or the players, maybe Spags defense is a bad fit for the Saints?

2006-2011 Super aggressive defense and offense - Good Match
2012 Aggressive offense and French defense - Oil and Water

Re: Mid Season Evaluation

I agree that the coaches need to be held responsible. We have talent on the team. But apparently not football talent. Either way our coaches need to be coaching or working on their resumes. Benson needs to hire someone to reevaluate our coaching staff. Why the hell is our special teams coach still here?(McMahon) We've been calling for his head for years. Sproles made him look good last year. Look at us this year.
Loomis(who I still think is brilliant) needs to shake things up and bring in some fresh ideas.

2006-2008, 2010-2011 Super aggressive defense and offense - OK Match
2012 Aggressive offense and French defense - Oil and Water
2009 Darren Sharper and the rest of the team - Great Match

I fixed it for you...

Re: Mid Season Evaluation

"Williams had success not because of his abilities or the abilities of his personnel but because he won before the snap, he ALWAYS kept QBs guessing. With the exception of the 4 down linemen everyone else was constantly moving around like jumping beans before the snap. "

Totally agree with this. I think Spags calls a defensive play and they stick to it. Sort of a read and react. GW had the Offense trying to read and react to the defense. I don't see our defense taking charge on teh field like Vilma has done in years past. It's like here is the play and stick to it.
