Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

Im not going to give on this team no matter what.

What has me baffled is that we are a good team on paper but just cannot put it all together. I truly think it is mental, from top to bottom. I have seen teams loaded like us not gel. Even after watching the post game presser with Payton, he looks lost.

Here is my take. We don't have an identity, we are not playing with passion, guys don't know what their jobs are, & the team as a whole looks separated.

I expect this team to go 7-9 or 8-8. Plain and simple, this football team is just not that good and we all had HIGH hopes going into this year. Hopefully they can finish the season respectfully and give it their all.

BTW, it is time to install SJB. Why draft a guy in the 2nd round and not give him live game reps. What the hell are they waiting on??

We didn't upgrade our O-Line this off-season or our Linebackers and we let our starting FS, starting SS, and Sproles walk. It shows now. But our division sucks and blows (us included at this point), so who knows?

The reality is that in this division we are now 1 game back and in the cellar of possibly the worst division in the NFL right now. Anything is possible.

Big IF. Likely won't happen with our remaining schedule, but certainly not impossible.
I like your optimism, Barry. Screw the newbies. Even if we only win another 4 games this season -- I love this team -- OK, maybe not this particular team -- but the Saints are my team.

There is ALWAYS a chance to pull this season out. Will it happen, probably not -- but I'm a Saints fan -- win or lose.

AND, the Vikes just put a 40-burger on the Failclowns -- so this is a happy day.

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

What hurts is all the hype, local and national media pulling our chain. It starts with coaching of course, then if you ask me both our lines are just bad. Then how can anyone in the backfield ( both sides of the ball ) get anything done. Our team is just not what we bought into...... hype .
My opinion, we're on the downside slide now. No way we come out swinging. This team doesn't believe in themselves. But once a fan always a fan . I'm in the sinking ship too boys. Take me down with yall

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

You pay your QB anything he wants and this is what you get. They are always better when they are hungry, not well-fed.

Same with Graham. He played with more passion at <3 years. The boy's hands are turning to stone already.

Pete Carmichael has outlived his usefulness. Sean Payton has "Got my Ring syndrome" and hasn't been the same since. That fake punt tonight will make the "Cmon Man" reel. That should have been Drew if we were going to give it away like that.

This team is embarrassing.

Yeah but apparently venting frustration when the team is as it is means you are not a fan to some people around here.

Re: THis team just aint worth watching.

Your not hungry when you got all the money in the world Alaska. My uncle and I were talking about that very point during the game.

These guys get the fat contract, get fat and don't give a Sh!t.
