Gumbo, I can\'t give Haslett credit for anything. But I will give the TEAM credit for showing up the last two games and getting wins. Both victories were good cause they happened because of strong play from the defense, which has been our downfall for too long. So I will give the TEAM credit for being in a position to make the playoffs. Haslett just needs to go.

I think it\'s human nature to hope. I mean, come on, this is the Saints we\'re talking about here. Haven\'t you guys seen enough losing in your lifetime?
That\'s exactly the point Bill - it is human nature to hope. Those who are successful, IMO, are almost always the ones who hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. Unfortunately, in business, and that\'s what this is, sometimes you just have to face facts. Realism is an unparalleled identifier of success, in my experience.

Now, I don\'t want to get into the same old argument about who is more \"realistic\" on this board. Instead, I\'ll ask a simple question - what do you see in this coaching staff that makes you believe anything will change?

And with all due respect, please don\'t tell me about what OTHER teams have done - those rules don\'t really apply to the Saints. If you use the, well other teams have done it argument, why am I not free to use the \"history says them, not us\" argument?

I think if you address the question, really try to answer it, you\'ll peal back those layers of hope and see the reality of the situation. In any case, I leave you to answer this: what do you see in this coaching staff that makes you believe anything will change?

Question of the day WhoDat. Hell, question of the last 3 years.

Or even: why should anything change?

Haslett has made a career here of going about .500. It seems apparent that he\'s going to keep his job, so why change the rest of the coaching staff? I\'m sure he\'ll fire the WR\'s coach or something to make a token gesture, but how does that change or improve anything?

I don\'t see any reason to believe that we won\'t be having this same discussion next year.

Just so you know, we won 6 games straight under Haslett in his first season with Jeff Blake so that whining about not winning is illogical.
Ahh, yes ... and then Aaron Brooks came along...
Yes, Aaron did come along and won the only playoff game the Saints have ever won. There are always jealous people that attack people with a gift that they covet. Tom Brady played like monkey pooh last night. I guess you think he\'s horrible now too?

wow. What has the world come to that Aaron Brooks can get compared to a two time Superbowl MVP having one bad game in as long a time as anyone can remember, against one of the top defenses in the league. I guess that playoff win gives him a Brady-esque pass to screw us forever. Come on DJ, surely youdon\'t think that huh?

LOL! Yeah, Tom Brady sucks. You think the Pats will trade him straight up for Aaron Brooks? Surely they wanna get rid of him now, after losing two games out of his last 24 (or something like that)!

But seriously, if you read back on some other posts, you\'ll find that I offered an apology to AB for some of the relatively nasty things I\'ve been saying about him. In fact, I said if he could exhibit some legitimate leadership - as he did in the Tampa game - I\'d be more than happy to eat my harsh words. All I\'m asking of the guy is that he actually earn the ridiculous sum of money the team is paying him, and given how sorry the line played, he did Sunday.

As for being jealous of abilities you assume I covet, I\'m pretty sure I could fumble, throw backwards, and subsequently laugh about it with the best of \'em. Damn sure I could do it for $3 Million a year.

Sorry ... couldn\'t help myself.

DGL! Oh my G-d! Did you just say that Tom Brady was an NFL QB who had a bad game and AB is an NFL QB who didn\'t!

NOOOOOOOO!!!

That\'s impossible! The world will surely come to an end now that you\'ve uttered this horrible, impossible, incomprehensible statement!

NOOOOOOOOO!!!



Whodi, you know I couldn\'t resist.

JKool, not dissing you here, but do you really wanna discuss the NUMBER of bad games between the two? That might just turn out worse than the old Favre/Brooks comparison we loved so well!

I am gonna choose not to touch this one this time. As per your joke Kool, I am sure you already know where I stand on anyone comparing another NFL qb to that wanna be Brooks. :sulkoff:
