Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

It's time to press the panic button, it's not time to press the abandon all hope this is the end button. Seriously we are 4 games into the season in a struggling division. We know this team is talented if they get their **** together. They need to iron out several different things, but we can turn this around. The fact that people are saying **** like the team isn't worth watching 4 weeks into the season after several winning seasons and a Super Bowl from our current staff shows that we have a few bandwagon fans.

I will admit it is more fun when they win. But, I'm a long, long way away from jumping off the bus. Word.

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

We are in the weakest division this year, which we are helping make the weakest division

Easily the worst saints team I've seen in a very long time, so glad I can cancel the days I've booked off to watch Monday night football, losing happens but I'd understand if we actually fought for the win

We just let Dallas do whatever they wanted, a full season of that and its not just RR that needs to go, SP needs to have a reality check

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

Someone said on here last week about things going stale with the same players,coaching staff etc. I agreed last week and still do (have not seen last nights game as its a 1am start over here).

The great teams that sustain long term success and multiple championships do it with a turnover of talent. The teams better players leave and are replaced by younger hungrier players. The tactics are changed to freshen things up and keep from being predicable.

Look through the main coaching staff and we have changed at DC but our head coach/OC is the same man and has been for 8 years.

The main player personnel is the same(Brees, Evans, Thomas, Strief, Colston, Meachem and Goodwin were even brought back) have all been here years, even Graham, Ingram have 4 years now. Only Cooks and Stills have offered anything different in recent years. Everyone knows the Saints tatics
screen pass, look for Colston/Graham through the middle, run 30/35% of plays and when under pressure force the ball to Graham. Brees has been and still is a great QB but I do not see how anyone can argue the zip and power on anything over medium range. The amount of under throws this year has been a real worry. As teams are finding it easier and easier to score points as the leagues keeps changing rules teams built on high powered offenses will not be able to blow anyone out the water any more. Only 5 teams are averaging under 19ppg this year.

The cap situation will not help next year as we sit well over the cap. Brees and other vets may restructure or extend to free up space but that just keeps the same players around longer and longer with diminishing performances and higher cap figures.

The LBs we have are one of if not the worst unit in the league, especially in coverage. Lofton racks up plenty of stats in tackles but how often do you see him make the impact at the line and not 5-6 yards down field. With all the restructuring the front 7 will earn 48.8ml next year. Even cutting Lofton, Hawthorne and Bunkley means you eat $11.2ml in dead money to save $9.7ml.


If you cannot get pressure you wont rush QBs to pass causing turnovers and nobody is getting pressure. Every teams knows hold Jordan and Gallete and you dont have to worry about anyone else getting multiple sacks. Keenan Lewis is generally a good CB but not going to get many interceptions. The only ball hawk in the team is Byrd. This isn't a defense to create turnovers and it has no depth at all.

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

Great post lee909

Brees has definitely lost some deep throw ability, he had Graham wide open with 2 steps on the defender and brees threw it short so that Graham had to slow down and the CB nearly picked it off

Like you said, our team as a whole is entirely too predictable, coach Payton barely changes his playbook over the years, we do the same thing with the same personel every year and its finally caught up with us

I know SP won't get fired, but he deserves to be on the hot seat for not preparing our team for the season

Whoever's bright idea it was to pay galette aswell, good job, he has officially given up since he now believes "he's made it"

After watching the saints offense under SP, I know when I've seen the same play run every year, this team is pathetic right now, complete embarrassment.

You mean the perennial top 10 offense for the past 8 years?
