Thats why i want the saints to take another risk on WR early in the draft. we need to reload the WR corp. so Graham can get a break and last a bit longer in a saints uni. we have not done it since Mechuem and that was a reach in the first place, time to revisit that position in the draft.

i say it is as simple as playing on grass. teams play with the length of the grass according to what team they are playing. example chicago had their turf at league max when they played us.

look gotta practice out doors. grass slows everything down. that IMO is the big difference for us. throws our timing off.

I figured out or offensive woes and it has to do with the 0-line but its fairly contrary to popular opinions.... It will not be fixed this season but is easily fixable.

Had a page worth of thread started then FireFox crashed.

what good will a #1 receiver do if Drew is getting pressured still. Gotta start there.

Re: One big reason why the saints lose on the road

alot of people agreed with me on yahoo that certain defenses get away with anything.

49ers, Ravens, Seahawks, to name 3 right there, but it seems the road woes is more to do with officiating than anything, its inconsistent to a pretty high degree. All it has done this season is alter playoff seedings and screw some teams out of the post season, last 2 years they been wanting big marketable teams in the playoffs and SB and then add story lines behind it, almost as bad as wrestling, we know how fake that is.

Re: One big reason why the saints lose on the road

While its hard NOT to believe in some type of conspiracy, watching some of the games, I'm not ready to bite the conspiracy theory. I know the Comissar would prefer certain teams in the SB, but just don't buy it. I think the rookie contracts and current salary cap and wussy rule changes has more to do with the eff'd state of affairs than anything.

Steve Smith's (Carolina Panther version) getting his Hall of Fame jacket sized in 5-7 years if he played w/ Drew Brees.

Re: One big reason why the saints lose on the road

I posted about this in another thread, but I suppose it was probably tl:dr or else I am on a lot of people's ignore list

But the people whining about the refs are such babies. They're like a bunch of crybaby liberals who want the refs to PICK UP and advance the football FOR the Saints, when the Saints can't get a first down on their own, because waaaah, it's NOT FAIR for the other team to stop them! We should score every time, it's not fair, wah wah wah.

Okay, the refs -- what is their JOB??? The refs are basically there to REWARD good football, and to punish BAD football! That's what they do!

If you are playing GOOD football -- disciplined,smart, sportsmanlike, solid, and if you are the better team of the two -- the refs will GIVE YOU all the calls you need. They will inch that ball forward to give you the first down; they will throw that pass interference flag for you, or delay of game, or call an obvious incompletion a catch -- they will GIVE YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED to win.

If you are playing BAD FOOTBALL, if you're getting manhandled, outphysicaled, sloppy, undisciplined, overpowered, and are complaining about everything, they will look the other way, or tell you to TALK TO THE HAND.

It happens all the time. For the Saints, the way to get more of the calls to start going your way, is to man up and start NOT SUCKING ON THE ROAD.
