Saintfan,

You need to post more. I\'d forgotten how clever you are. I laughed out loud at your post.
This weird blending of the personas of Billy and WhoDat really has me scratching my head. I\'m kind of worried that Billy has WhoDat locked in a footlocker somewhere while someone has assumed WhoDat\'s identity.

Saintfan,

If you really look at what WhoDat has said, it\'s not much different that last year. I think he\'s a LITTLE more optimistic than last year, but he\'s said he wouldn\'t be surprised to see an 8-8 finish.

But there\'s reason to be more optimistic at this point.

1. Stallworth appears to be ready for this season.
2. All Brooks needs to do is play like last year minus the fumbles and it should be good enough to get us to the playoffs.
3. The D-line appears to be in better shape.
4. We have one of the best runningbacks in the NFL.
5. John Pease seems to be making a difference and could be the biggest difference maker of them all.
6. Haslett is being tougher with the players.
7. The addition of Will Smith and Courtney Watson. Oh, and Devery Henderson.
8. Tebucky, Ruff and some other players know the system better now.
9. Going to the spread offense more.
10. Defense is going to play some 3-4 and it appears they are going to turn these players loose.

So, there\'s reason of optimisim. Now, I wouldn\'t go betting the house because if the Saints and Haslett have taught us anything ... this could be \"fools gold.\"

The truth is, nobody has a very good idea how this team will perform this year.


I\'d bet my last dollar if the Saints come out and stink it up against Seattle, WhoDat will be leading the charge for the moonshiners!!

You guys are all makin\' a big deal outta nuthin\'. All it\'s gonna take is one INT (Brooks), one missed tackle (Tbuck) or one case of getting burned deep (Ambrose) and the honeymoon\'ll be over. Whodat has stuck his head out the window for a bit of sunshine, but the elements will get to him.

LMAO!! Probably true.

If you really look at what WhoDat has said, it\'s not much different that last year. I think he\'s a LITTLE more optimistic than last year, but he\'s said he wouldn\'t be surprised to see an 8-8 finish.
Amazingly, Billy\'s finally starting to get it. Last year I was undecided between 8-8 and 9-7. SO far this year I\'m undecided between 9-7 and 10-6, but wouldn\'t be surprised to see 8-8. Billy said it, I am only a LITTLE more optimistic this year. The difference is YOUR perspective. Last year there was RAMPANT UNCHECKED optimism on this board that had people talking about the Saints being 13-3. Some of us REALISTS (hehehe) looked pessimistic because we saw things as they were, and compared to 13-3, 8-8 is considered far worse.

This year, the Sunshine Club is operating under partly cloudy skies, and they now see the lunar influences on this team. In other words, now that the rest of you can begin to see what\'s really going on, I don\'t look like some fanatic, even though my stance has been pretty consistent and realistic.

Funny that last year the \"Moonshiners\" were talking about, at worst, 7-9 or 8-8 and we were nuts. The 12-4 and 13-3 people knew what was really going on. Now the \"Moonshiners\" are talking about 8-8 and the \"Sunshiners\" are still talking about how nuts they are - it\'s obvious this team is going to be 10-6! CLEARLY, those guys are pessimistic just for the sake of being pessimistic.

You want a safe bet this year, the saints will be WORSE than 8-8 or BETTER than 10-6, b/c NO ONE is saying that they will be. Of course, they could be 9-7 too. LOL. This team is just too hard to figure out - amazing talent and amazing ability to misuse it.

What I find a bit misleading in the mooshiner\'s \"I told you so\" rants is that if I told you last year that we\'d lose our best defensive player halfway through the 1st game, lose a starting LB for 9 games, suffer the 2nd most injuries in NFL history, have two losses NFL officials apologized for causing, play several games with about half our starters out, have a solid special teams unit completely fold, ALL you moonshiners would have predicted about 5-11 or 6-10 or worse and you know it.

Meanwhile if you had asked the same question of the sunshiners who were predicting 13-3 (I said 10-6 BTW) they probably would have guesses around 9-7. I probably would have guessed 8-8 under those circumstances.

So don\'t give me that I told you so crap cause it doesn\'t flush.

A moment of silence please.

I\'ve been a member of BnG for a LONG time, and this is the first time I\'ve seen the coulda, woulda, shoulda defense. Given its popularity amongst the Saints, I\'m surprised this is the first time it ever came up. I\'m also disappointed in Tweek for pulling that one out. Never thought you\'d be the guy to pull a Mora... tisk, tisk. Can I get a PLAYOFFS rant our of you?
