The New Orleans Saints remain confident after their 0-2 start. But they arenít ignoring the very real problems that need to be corrected.

Coach Sean Payton pointed out to the team on Wednesday morning that theyíre actually 7-8 over their past 15 games, including the playoffs (2-8 on the road). And the biggest problem has been their inability to finish.

During that stretch, the Saints have surrendered late leads to the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers in 2012, as well as the Atlanta Falcons and Cleveland Browns in the first two weeks this year. They also had late rallies fall short last season at the New York Jets and at the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs.

Re: Saints Not Ignoring 7-8 Record Over 15 Games

Dang...that playoff game win @PHI certainly distorts that 2-8 on the road record. 7-8 over the last 15 games ain't pretty, either. Are the wheels comin' off? No, but it is a surreal and sobering fact. Those #'s don't lie.

Re: Saints Not Ignoring 7-8 Record Over 15 Games

We were screwed at New England and at Carolina.

But nonetheless, even 9-6 isn't exactly domination.

But lets not lose sight of the fact that 2 of those 8 road losses were at Seattle, which was clearly the very best team in the NFL last year and unbeatable at home.

And the stat conveniently leaves out the 5-0 record right before the New England game.

So it looks ominous, until you look closer.

TALK IS CHEAP!! Make the moves you need to make to get the team straightened out like cutting Patrick Robinson. It just boggles the mind that he beat out Champ Baily unless Baily is still hurt. Still, play the rook and let him get some experience. Can't be worse than it already is.

Oh it can get much much worse MM. There's a reason Rob Ryan is starting Robinson over SJB and Dixon.

I don't have PFF access but I read elsewhere that the worst rated starting CB in the entire NFL is... Keenan Lewis?

That can't be true, can it?

Well they must be ignoring it because I haven't seen any changes to improve in that area.

Ugh...seriously? Lewis is the worst? Numbers-wise, possibly. Can't figure that one out at all. Pretty sure Ryan wouldn't tank his credibility as a DC by not playing the best player at each position, and that includes at corner. SJB & Dixon ain't ready for the big time...they struggled at times in the preseason against 2nd, 3rd & 4th string WRs. And both probably haven't grasped the RR defense yet against complex NFL offenses. Teams don't play a very complex offense in the preseason, and I think you'd find SJB & Dixon as or more lost than PRob-blem did last week. But who knows...I'm just a weather dude.

Re: Saints Not Ignoring 7-8 Record Over 15 Games

We need to get pressure on the QB. No corner in the league is good enough to cover receivers with the time we have given the first two teams. It makes Prob look worse than he really is.
