Rocky III

The Saints remind me of Rocky III; Stallone gets to stylin on his new success and then along comes a mean, bad SOB who smacks him in the mouth, offers to satisfy his woman, and punks his mentor...

On the radio today, I kept hearing over and over "the Saints are soft"...

Mick tried to tell Rocky, but it was too late...

We need an Apollo Creed to come in and get that "eye of the tiger" back for the Saints...

But with big soft characters like Charles Brown, Zach Strief, Roman Harper, Curtis Lofton, Malcom Jenkins, Ben Grubbs, Garret Hartley, Brian de la Puente, Lance Moore, and soon to add Jimmy Graham - I'm not liking where this thing is heading...

Re: Rocky III

We could get Dombrowski, Brenner, Tommy Myers, Rickey Jackson, Pat Swilling, Vaughan Johnson, Eric Martin to come in and have a 'Come To Jesus' meeting, but then we would have people complaining that the Saints are professionals and shouldn't need it!

Re: Rocky III

Vaccaro and Cam Jordan need to call a team meeting and get them pumped and angry.

Re: Rocky III

I thought the "back to basics" was pretty much Rocky 2-6

He went back to basics in Russia, then with Creed, then took the young pup back to basics... Etc... All but 1 were about not forgetting where you came from and how you got there.

You list of soft is strange. Harper, Lofton, and Grubbs aren't soft. I wouldn't even say Strief is soft.

Re: Rocky III

Strief is cuddly but I wouldn't say soft.
