I think the team is definitely better than last year but I wanna see them play against somebody before I get overly excited. ok now let the ripping commence.
Dude, you've got to do better than this to sound pessimistic. If you are willing I can mentor your development.

Lips getting tired on that horn?

You know you sound that way because that is exactly what it is, a negative view point, void of the other half of the story. You and the rest of the pessimistic fans go through a great deal of trouble to try to protect optimists from them selves don't you? All the while ignoring the huge lengthy list of Saints IR.

I am neither pessimist or optimist, I'm what you would call a realist. Consider this, the NFL season is a war of attrition. Teams do not lose because of an injury, they lose because of a lack of depth.... Teams also win because they have depth...

Hartley misses a FG, we lose; their kicker misses a FG and we should have lost... WTF is that?

Would be refreshing is if the eeyore's would kindly revisit the 2009 season and the injury reports in all of our opponents and please come back and tell us all the games we lost in theory but were lucky enough to have the winning score in the end.

Please list all of the NFL games where any team has had an empty injury report.

If you do not want to be excited then don't be..... other peoples excitement eating at you is your problem..... Not theirs. Let them enjoy what they like when they like.

Happy Sunday

Honestly granular sugar doesn't blow well and powered sugar requires a very dry "window" to get it though. If there is any moisture you end up with something that looks like this.

Yeah, and in those 3 games, the Saints weren't missing players either...
And the Cardinals defense was so awful, it gained 6 yards on the ground the first half.

I don't mind pessimistic, but at least let us be factual.
