If we Win out! (a voice of reason)
 
We will be .500 Nothing more...


Did your blood boil from the title? :)

Start laughing about this season, seriously. If you don't the next 3 games will make you want to watch the Home Shopping Network.


We KNEW this season was coming, we KNEW how it would be before the start of preseason. Learn to be satisfied with what wins we ended up with.

Hopefully at the end of this season, we as fans will understand that no one player or coach was the cause. We should also understand that "One Sunday at a time" is not all about just looking at the upcoming week, but letting last week go. As we near the end of the season, we are falling apart, not because our players are bad but because we have no coach to look our players in the eyes and tell them, "LET IT GO" and focus on the now.

The stress, strain, changes, have taken its mental toll on everyone. Fans included. The team is at 100% frustration and if you do a job where frustration can get involved you understand that when you are frustrated you do not preform as well. No matter how professional you are.

This is just the voice of reason.

Go in peace.

Pretty much sums it up, it is the cards we were dealt no real surprises.
If you put it in prospective like Oak did you will keep your sanity. If you took Bill Belichick away from the Patriots for a year I'm sure they would have a similar fate as the Saints. I will admit the loss to the Giants ripped out whatever guts I had left even worse than the Atlanta game.

I didn't expect this at all man. I mean they are professional athletes. I thought they'd be so pumped up and ready for the season. Not only should they've been inspired to play with ALL that happened. But a home town SB should've made them all the more inspired to play lights out football. No I didn't expect this kinda season at all. Even with the 0-4 start. I lost hope after the falcons game.

To go with the expectations that since they were "professional" there would be little negative effect. You would have to also surmise the opposite, that professional soldiers gained nothing from Patton's speech.

Motivation and focus have nothing to do with being a Professional. Motivation and focus through controversy even less so. In the simplest of terms, human nature has nothing to do with professionalism.

Didn't expect it to be this bad. Colts are handling the lost of their head coach a lot better than us although completely different circumstances and softer schedule. I still figured us to be 11-5 with the talent we have but I overlooked the stubbornness of wanting to pass deep every down instead of running the ball or check downs.

The Great General George S Patton Speech To The Troops - YouTube

Didn't think about that. Your 100% right. And that was a heck of a speech.

Back when the Saints were 0-4 or 1-4, I had said to people that a 7-9 record would be fairly decent considering the turmoil this year. I'll expect more though when Payton's back and Spags is in his second year.

I was about to blast the OP until I read it. If we win out...we get a worse draft pick, that's about it
