Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

We have one if the most consistent offenses in NFL history so NO I won't blame the offense....the problem is the defense...NOTICE every play they're trying to get strips instead of tackles. Byrd is the only one not doing this. Cam is trying but Gallete is playing like a Diva....WE HAVE TO TACKLE...And get an EXPERIENCED corner from somewhere at the other side to even give this team a crack at a win streak

We have too much "talent" to be this bad on D. One thing I know for sure; our d-line may be the worst in the NFL, Jordan is a joke, Hicks is a no show and JR is getting paid to grow his beard. The biggest change in this D comes from the front four getting no pressure on the QB at all... Jordan is in a contract year and might be left to test FA market if he keeps this trash going.
High expectations from Jordan and Galette in preseason. Added help for safety with Byrd. The fall is further because of the stellar performance last year and what seemed to be some good pick ups/draft choices. It's hard to believe this is almost the same defense. They are fat and lazy and the other teams want it more. Dropped passes, missed tackles, etc. It is hard to watch a true -ss whipping. 8 and 8 will be tough to accomplish this year.

Uh huh. Ya know I remember fans calling for Tom Coughlins head right before he won the super bowl.

While the Saints offense has been very good other teams are now putting up similar numbers. Putting up 30pts now isnt what it was 3-5 years ago and will continue to get easier to score.

Yeah the defense is very bad, but is it their fault our offense didn't score a TD until the 3rd quarter?

Brees throwing into triple coverage, receivers dropping passes, no running game

Our D is pathetic, but that doesn't stop the offense from answering with a score and taking some pressure off, our high flying offense didnt score a TD until the 3rd quarter.

He sounds defeated. Haven't seen or heard him like this before.
You could tell in the 2nd quarter that the Cowboys had literally beaten the life out of us, players and coaches. Even Payton's mind-tricks aren't working on this bunch.

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

Turning Point: Graham misses a 41 yard field goal in beginning of 2nd quarter of a 7-0 game. We had just drove 65 yards from inside our own 15 yard line in 5 minutes to get ZERO.

It was a mess after that miss. Plenty of other jackass-ery in this game in all phases, but I can point to that 41 yard miss by that idiot as the point where this game changed drastically. After that miss, they score 17 points in over half a quarter. Halftime score: 24-0

No, saying you're giving up after 4 games and only 1 game out of 1st place or you're gonna cut grass instead of watch this team means you're not as much of a fan as the loyal fans that would watch this team every week even if they were 0-16.

Criticism is understandable, abandoning them is not what real fans do. Especially being that we're only 1 game behind some really weak teams in our division and we've played exactly 1 home game.

I'm still 100% convinced that we win this division, crappy defense and all.

Agree in every way. Our division is horrible. This Saint team can still pull it together, but they have to start with the defense no doubt. Man that defensive performance was hard to watch.
