My Thoughts On Next Year

Well I have sat here long enough today and read all of your post, so let me see where to start.

All of you fair weather fans just need to stop with the whole this player can’t play and that player can’t catch BS. You sit and say that you are tired of Cheering for the Saints because the “Season is done�, once again I say BS. I‘ve been guilty of wanting to point the finger my-self until I came to the realization that maybe the team isn’t producing because of the coaching staff. (And I know that we have all agreed that it is the coaching). Haslett’s playoff win was a result of what Ditka had done the three years previous. MM and Haslett have already tangled? I think that a lot of the players refuse to play under Haslett. We all want to bash Brooks, but wait before you do think about this. What if we actually got Romeo as a coach and a new staff, do you think that he could turn this team around? He would come here with the respect of the players, (which Haslett don’t have). And then I think that AB could be a top 5 QB and the receivers would step up as well. Find a D cord. That was tuff on his player like Ditka was and make them work for their spot on the roster. You want to write off players that will one day be stars in the league if its with the Saints or another team, and then you will say I wish we had Brooks back. So think about all the intangibles before posting you anti-player post. We know it’s the coaching and just like you at work you do what your boss tells you to do!

Once again, why is it Saints fans criticize other fans about being too critical.

Saints are 2-4 and had a good shot at being 0-6 if not for come from behind victorys. Beside the Time Pic and every other Saints related media group have been just as critical and blasted the Org from QB to coach just the same.

I\'ll say this once again for the 100th time. AB is not THE problem, but his play is too INCONSISTANT for us to win basically b/c the margin for error is so small b/c OUR COACH hasn\'t improved the defense in FOUR YEARS of drafts and free agency. I don\'t hate AB, but I hate some of the bone headed mistakes he continues to make. But I\'d rather him succeed here than somewhere else.

On top of that AB can succeed here, but NEVER, NEVER, NEVER under Haslett basically b/c AB was cuddled and given special treatment that has alienated him from the rest of his teammates.

They know he\'s above them and is married to Haslett, therefore what AB says goes, through Haslett\'s mouth to the players ears.

Thats why this org is lost. The coach has ZERO Creditablity with the team because of his own failures and alliances with AB.

In part, AB & Haslett have destroyed themselves in New Orleans. The boos aren\'t soley intended for AB. They are the fans voicing displeasure in the Coach\'s marriage to AB.

To salvage this horrible wreck of a team, Haslett needs to go and some new coach needs to come in and let the ENTIRE TEAM FIGHT FOR THEIR SPOTS. We need to dump Bowman for a backup that pressures AB for his spot etc, etc, etc.

We need a new coach. I can handle the BOOS after 4 years out of the playoffs and playing lousy boasting a 2-4 record.
Gator :salute: this is perhaps the clearest and most lucid post I think you\'ve ever written. I think you\'ve zeroed in on the problems facing this franchise. Thanks for posting.

It\'s not often but I agree with you Gator, as a fan of this team from day one, if I were in the Dome watching this team, I\'d boo also. Not anyone in particular but the complete team effort. These guys will never play for Haslett,McCarthy or Venturi there\'s no respect for them. Hell it\'s obvious that the fans,or at least most of them don\'t respect them. I love this team, I will support them as long as I live, but I also reserve my right to show my displeasure in the quality of effort they put on the field. Before anyone gets up in arms, I\'ve spent many dollars going to Saints games and driving 6 hours to see them. So my investment is there.
All I want is I\'m sure the same as the rest of you want, a good solid effort by ALL players,coachs and management. Then if we lose, at least we lost in style.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!!

Very, very interesting to see Joe say this. I remember a time when you had to have an AGENDA to SPECULATE that the players had lost faith in Haslett or AB. Now it seems to be common knowledge. It\'s a shame that it has come to this...
