this game is not our d's fought

I foresee another rough yearfor me and all SAINTS fans. It starts getting really OLD when no matter what level of talent our team is able to cobble together, they still find a way to make the very least of it.

I for one can\'t put all (or even most) of the blame on Brooks for today\'s debacle. It belongs squarely on the back of the coaching staff.

Sure, Brooks could\'ve been better. He could be more of the leader and playmaker that we all wish he was and puled the game out of his a$$ with extraordinary runs, throws while under endless pursuit and just plain finesse. But that just is not likely ever going to be the case.

It\'s also just not in Brooks\' genetic makeup to be the cheerleader, the one that fires up the troops. And he will never (IMHO) be compared to Farve or any other great scrambling, throw-on-the-run QB. BUT, he could be a significantly better than average QB if he is given adequate protection and was coached better so that he learns how to make the most out of the protection and opportunities he is given. And no, I don\'t think he has been!

The real underlying problem with this loss and countless other disappointments over the past few years is that the team as a whole has not been shown how to win. And that is the fault of Haz.

You can have the greatest players in the world on your team, but if you don\'t teach them the right skills, put them in the right positions, play them when you should and not be affraid to pull them when they can\'t do the job, as well as be creative, call the right plays and schemes on both sides of the ball, use the right mix of encouragement and discipline, lead by example (which also means placing blame where it belongs and accepting it when you deserve it) and most of all. instill in them the drive to win, you\'ll never wear a Superbowl ring.

I just don\'t think Haz and his staff have done these things anywhere near as well as they could be done. Our record proves that and that\'s why we keep losing when we should be winning.

BTW, it would not hurt if people would learn to hold onto the ball a little better. My solution: run drills 6, 8, 10, 12 hours a day until this improves. But hey, that\'s Haz\'s department.

As always, this is just my opinion.

Geaux SAINTS,

Oh I see now, nothing but geniuses around here. We suck because we can\'t execute screen passes. Thats right. My bad.

You can name every successful quarterback in the league, but I guarantee you that their wide receivers dont drop the ball like we do. Also, our play calling is so predictable and just doesnt make sense.
