I've been kinda' anticipating seeing how Vaccarro would fare against Calvin, myself ... but signing Golden Tate has taken some of the spotlight off of Megatron ... that guy (Tate) is "Mr. Yards-after-the-Catch" and it's easy to see how he was Seattle's most productive (yds) receiver ... if I'm not mistaken, .

I have thought this type of thing, too. In fact I wonder if there may actually be two or three smaller separate things going on internally right now. John Jenkins is "healthy" but doesn't make the trip?? Why so few "rainbow" deep shots from Brees anymore, these days? And where the heck is Pierre Thomas?

To me this game was eerily reminiscent of the Saints/Broncos game in 2012, where fan hopes were high and the wheels totally fell off, in the middle of the road, for all to see.

Unfortunately "something internal is wrong with the team" is kinda what I'm smelling. There is clearly a disconnect between what is happening inside the Saints locker room/coaching bubble, and what is happening out on the field. Not sure if it's Payton-related, Ryan-related, or something else.

Colston and jimmy almost seem like they are intentionally not catching passes. Colston's no targets a couple of weeks ago and his demeanor seem to also be passive aggressive. I really think there is locker room mutiny going on.

Good point about Pierre Thomas!

It seems like he's vanished without trace!

I just don't get it!

Then he said if we lost Graham because we couldn't sign him, we'd be fine without him.
Every bit of that is made up.

Nah, they've started fast outta' the gate before & in recent history only to go something like 1-7/2-6 the second half of their schedule ... Wk #7 is when they start playing the good teams & we'll see if they're for real then, ... it makes for good conversation, but I gotta' think by the time Wk#7 rolls around, the Saints'll be good & tired of what's been going on thus far and be using the Lions game to "make a statement".

Good fit or not, winning be damned, we're stuck with some people.
Since you both called it out, I'll share what I know. I have an inside-the-organization source (legit) who says there are 2-3 factions in the locker room.

PT is disgruntled as hell about being buried on the depth chart and "shopped around" twice.

Jimmy and Junior have been total d i c k s since their payday. Players are not mad they got paid but in how they're treating everyone else.

So some are pissed some are like "f-it, I'm getting mine" but overall Payton is losing the respect of a lot of players. Quickly.

This should explain the canned answers we're hearing from players and coaches alike.

Buckle up Who Dats, it could be a long season if we lose to TB.

Not able to move the ball, not getting first down, not protecting drew, drew throwing redzone int's and pick 6's, getting the ball with 7 mins left in a game where you only have a one point lead and not creating a drive to what could have possibly done in the browns etc etc is what i said all along. so that's why i said the offense is equally responsible for thos losses as well as our "cant stop a damn soul" defense.
Thats still absurd. If our defense was even close to at least average our offense would have a 3 score lead in the 4th and we wouldn't have to worry about a bottom feeder going 96 yards with 50 seconds left to beat us on a last second FG.

Partly responsible I could kinda buy, but even thats a pretty hard sell. Equally responsible is exactly what I said it was, absurd. We gave up 600 yards to the Falcons and our offense scored 37 points.

On what planet does that mean the offense and defense are equally to blame?

That's some scary dramatic **** there. If Payton loses the locker room, the season is already over.
