Why this is what needed to happen to our Team
 
A lot of questions have risen since our dismal 5-5 stretch has been displayed.
Where's the real Jimmy Graham ? Why is Drew so drastically different on the Road ? What's with the fake field goal ? Why are we not running the flipping ball ? Why is nobody ever open ? Why is the play calling worse than ask madden on rookie ?

Look I know , but there is a question that can explain the others that follow it , I ask this ...

Are we too Humble ?

Sunday Night , Prime time , in the dome , Black on Gold ... The Dome is rocking. Galette and Jordan are going ape with the sack dances ! We're cocky , arrogant , good impossible to beat ... And we know it .

Then we go on the road and Have a hard time catching up on the scoreboard to a team that's not even close to the playoffs.

I think we have no road swagger ... That's what made that 09 squad so darn good. The refusal to be a good chump and take one on the chin. We just kept swinging for the fences. This team doesn't have that. It's more or less damage control from the opening kick when on the road.

I know basketball doesn't have many parallels to football bit I found what Michael Jordan Said about his team that still posses the record for most wins in a regular season intriguing . He said they were trying to flat out embarrass folks home and away. They felt their opponents weren't good enough to be on the same court as them. He set himself on fire for his entire career. He had something to prove. And that's what this situation presents us , when's the last time we had anything to prove ?

Remind everyone 3 last of the 4 Super Bowl winners are wild cards. The one that wasn't ? That was us in 09. Some teams catch fire , the great teams light their own fire.

We can be respectful and classy after the games over. Let the testosterone flow. No white flags ...

Maybe so. The road/home discrepancy is definitely mental. Maybe a little more in your face trash talk would loosen us up.

One good road win can swing this mentality and start a Superbowl run, just have to get the first one.

That is true. All winning streaks start somewhere. Ours hopefully will in a wildcard game in Philly.

I like the MJ reference. My daughters softball team has the same mentality when they play. They always have a "They are not worthy enough to be on the same field as us and we are going to embarrass them!" They have 5 State Championships to prove that, that mentality works. Do they lose? Yes, but in a 34 game season they have never lost more than 6 games a season. The Saints don't have that mentality. I feel like they thought with SP back that everything was going to take care of itself. The team needs to do a little soul searching and find out who they are.
