Re: Still can't swallow this pill.

The thing is, all year long it was compounded by the fact that (yes, I know it's a cruel world out there) in game after game, other teams basically smelled the blood in the water, they knew the Saints were on the ropes and at a disadvantage in their coaching, and they all exploited it. You could see that people were picking on the team, rubbing their noses in it, going after us, kicking the Saints while they were down, etc etc. Going all the way back to the Jacksonville preseason game, where they kicked a freaking onside kick against us, to start the second half. WTF kind of team pulls a stunt like that in a preseason game, unless you are trying to get somebody's goat or make a statement or just eff with somebody, because their back is against the wall and because you can punk them and get away with it. That's what made it hurt.

But if you get some distance on it, look at it objectively, other than a few flashes of brilliance, they straight up looked like a team without a head coach out there, it really showed. Beating this year's Saints was not really that big of an accomplishment.

I seriously don't know what the NFL's problem is. This read option offense isn't all that hard. College teams defense it all the time and the NFL can't adjust??? What's wrong with this picture?

You damn right.

If their is one season with asterisk, its 2012, not just for the Saints, but the entire NFL season.

Lets not forget the first 2-3 games with those replacement refs either, that has what swung the playoffs enough for teams like Seattle and Washington to get in the playoffs.

We couldn't finish games this season, that was our big problem, letting teams back into the game and it didn't always go our way
Payton will get that ironed out, we have all the trust in the world he will get it sorted
Look to the future! Who dat

I blame Aaron Kromer. If Vitt was there from the begining we would have been at least 10-6
