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.
Exactly, the porous defensive backfield was masked by the pressure last year, which we have seen NONE of this year.

Big IF. Likely won't happen with our remaining schedule, but certainly not impossible.
I see what you're saying Barry but the schedule is much tougher that our first 5 games. Outlook, not so good. Appreciate the optimism though.

Whoa...slow down. I ain't spouting roses, but I ain't burying them either.

Last year ended last year. This season hasn't ended yet.

No, but I am breaking out the irons next Sunday. Ill be working on my golf game while the Saints barely beat TB in a nail bitter. Then when they play Detroit ill go play 18-holes, because who wants to watch the Lions beat our ass.

Got to find something to do on Sunday until next year.

You really think Byrd played well? You must not have watched the game...if he was a rookie or 2nd string player I'd say he did ok...good? No way in hell for the highest paid safety.

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

Coaches quote........Playoffs?!?! Playoffs?!?! Playoffs?!?!
Players quote.........Practice?!?! Practice?!?! Practice?!?!

The offense is finesse. Predictable. Unbalanced.
The defense has no playmakers. Thinking instead of playing. Soft overall.
Another long year for Saints fans.

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

And I'll be watching every snap the rest of this year. I've seen much, much worse than this, my friends.

Byrd was literally the only one making plays... he can't compensate for everyone.

Earl Thomas would look just as bad.

We've still got a tough schedule, even on the road (@ PIT, @ DET, @ CHI). If we win the quarters of the season from this point on (i.e 3-1, 4-0) at best we are 13-3 and at worst 10-6. We go 2-2 during any quarter of this season, playoffs are gonna be tough to get into this year.
Yep. It is still awfully early but GB, Cincy and San Fran are all looking like they will be playoff caliber teams this year. Unless we make a drastic improvement on both sides of the ball, this could get real ugly for us on the road and at HOME.
