For some reason I keep seeing the old Jim Mora "Playoffs" quote

With a reference to "Lit a fire" instead.

With everything that has happened to this team over the last year.

A lousy showing on a national stage is not what I believed would "lit a fire under this team".

Talk is cheap. And we have no Defense to speak of.

Something tells me we beat the Eagles, lose a squeaker to the Falcons, and then the wheels come completely off...

ďJust stick together. I think this is when a lot of teams or maybe less mentally tough individuals would start pointing the finger and starting getting overly frustrated or pessimistic.

Thereís never a more important time to circle the wagons and rally around each other and make it about each week once at a time. We canít look at anything else. We canít look at the rest of our schedule. We canít look at our division. We canít look at anything other than how do we win this week? I feel like thatís the approach weíve taken this entire season. I feel like weíve gotten better every week with the exception of last week. Last week was extremely disappointing, the result of the game and our overall performance as a team, just did not play up to our standard, certainly with the hype going into that game and we were all hurt by it, but it also lights a fire within all of us that we donít want that to be the lasting memory that people have of our team. Weíre better than that and we need to show them on Monday night.Ē
Great and it only took them to lose 5 games already to realize it.

$100 million don't burn Drew. And it consumes what little talent there is on the team.

Re: Drew Brees: The Denver Broncos Game Lit a Fire Within All of Us

Drew Brees is an exceptional QB. He is seriously a once in a lifetime event. With that said, he is on the down spiral of his career. He will indeed make a little noise and get close again, or do it again, who knows. What we do know is the defense is going to have a major rebuild after this season. The offense is not too far away, it is about 2 years into the future of having to rebuild that unit too.

I guess the point I am trying to make is time is quickly running out on the Saints. Right now is the time. It has been time for the past few years, but it didn't happen. Eventually Brees is going to be a washed up QB just trying to hang on. I just hope for the life of me the Saints don't have to go like 10 years before getting some hope.

Re: Drew Brees: The Denver Broncos Game Lit a Fire Within All of Us

Had he shown up to training camp on time instead of squeezing a few more million dollars out of the team we wouldn't need to have fires lit...

That I do blame him for... He didn't exactly play the greatest games week 1-3.
