Need your "vote." Biggest Problem?

Results so far:

Coaching - 4
Linebacker - 3
Brooks - 1
Injuries - 1

Well, it\'s close as of right now. We need some more votes. Come on people, give us some votes. And thanks to the folks who voted!!
Should have asked everyone for the top 3.

And clarify. Does linebackers mean the personnel, or the coaching of this unit. I believe the talent is there. They just aren\'t being coached up.
I challenge you to show me a LB that has improved under Winston Moss.

heres my breakdown
Problem areas listed from most troubling to least troubling

Def Coordinator/coaches
Head Coach
Offensive Coordinator/coaches
LB (Players)
CB (Players)
O-line (Players)
D-Line (Players)
Special Teams (Coaching)
WR (Players)
QB (Players)
Special Teams (Players)
TE (Players)
RB (Players)

Danno --

I thought about asking something along those lines. But, it complicates things. Gets into too many areas and off topic too much.

If someone feels like it\'s coaching, no matter what coach, just say coaching and explain what you mean. If it\'s talent at linebacker ... list that and explain.

I\'m interested in what the MAJORITY thinks our # 1 problem is.

I have 2 reasons for asking this question:

1. I\'m torn between what I think the biggest problem is.
2. It\'s always interesting to see what everyone else thinks.

Now, someone give us some votes. !!! :exclam:

Linebacker, when your safety is leading the race in # of tackles, that means Linebackers are not doing their job.

I agree with you too Shrume, the linebacking corps has alot of questions to answer in a very short time. With the players we have in the best case scenario they will be average this year in my opinion. I don\'t think Grant will have much of an impact if any at all, the jury\'s still out on Watson, Ruff could be very good, Bockwoldt needs a shot, a few others are good with talent. I think we need to just find the right combination.

Consistency (which comes from coaching).

That is CLOSELY followed by what Danno said. Potential becoming good play. That is also coaching.

Latest count:

Coaching: 5
Linebackers: 5
Brooks: 1
Injuries: 1

It\'s closer than a George W. vs. Al Gore race!!

Well, I\'ll be the supreme court and cast my vote for ..... Coaching. :P

I was torn between coaching and linebackers. After reading what everyone had to say, some of you swayed me to go with coaching.

I do agree with those who think our linebackers are a weak area. Lets hope and pray. I\'m sure Haslett is !!

But lets talk about coaching. Let\'s take one more vote. This vote will be about coaching. It can be about any coach on the Saints. Doesn\'t have to be just about Haslett.

For those of you who voted for something other than coaching, let\'s hear your opinion on our coaching staff also...

Here\'s the question:

What is the biggest weakness of our coaching staff? What area of coaching is our biggest liability?

P.S. -- Again, just list ONE area. And give an explaination. Maybe we can get to the bottom of this. Or, at least we can learn a little more.

It would be presumptious of me to say that i know that the CB coach, or LB coach is the problem. I do not go to their practices, I do not know what happens out there.

So I have to put the blame squarely on Haz\'s shoulders. I am a fan of Haz\'s. Just like his attitude. He MAY become a good coach, he MAY be becoming one, and this year can prove it one way or the other.

BUT, as head coach, if as Danno thinks, the LB coach is not getting the most out of your players, find someone else. Def Coordinator not scheming well, get someone else.

I love loyalty, I love faith in fellow members, but crappy performance should be accepted only so long. So I would have to lay the blame on Haz.

Man, if Haz and co. get the can this year, you talk about the hottest job opening in the NFL!! Who wouldn\'t want to step in and take all the talent we have and just have to turn it up a notch or 2 to get us over the hump.

Since mine was a singular vote, I feel the need to explain further (although I thought it was self-explanatory).

As compared to the LBs, if Aaron improves his play and playsat least 80% of his potential I think we win most games regardless of whether the LBs get better. I don\'t think the converse, that if the LBs improve and Aaron doesn\'t, we win, is true.

This little vote I\'m conducting is taking more time than I thought.

The majority says that \"coaching\" is the biggest problem.

Now that we\'ve got it narrowed down. What\'s is THE BIGGEST problem with the coaching??

B&B has tabbed Venturi as BIGGEST of the problems with our coaching staff. I agree with that.

Don\'t make me call you guys OUT (lummOx ) Let\'s hear it. Might as well vote. I ain\'t going no where.

And neither is this thread...LMAO... :P
