Re: Have the 2014 Saints peaked?

We haven't even played our a-game yet. How could we have peaked?

Re: Have the 2014 Saints peaked?

We looked great against the Pack, we gutted out a road win against Carolina. We lost a very close game against a tough conference opponent in San Fran. Then came a massive let down game. I think we come back very pissed off against Baltimore and have a really good showing. I truly think we have an excellent chance of losing 1-2 of our last 6 and taking this division. Atlanta has a brutal schedule and Carolina is plummeting faster than Cam Newton's passes. This team needs to pull their heads out of their asses and man up and take this thing.

I tend to agree. At least from a talent standpoint.

But against inferior opponents, why hasn't our "A game" materialized?

Because our defense has struggled mightily, and for the most part its looked mental.

If our defense had performed as expected, or even middle of the road, we'd be looking at 6-4 (maybe even 7-3) instead of 4-6.

Since we have basically the same or better talent than we did last year when we were a top 10 defense, I have to put the blame on Rob Ryan and his crew.

Re: Have the 2014 Saints peaked?

If we peaked with GB & CAR, these last 6 games will be hard to watch.

With us & ATL tied at 4-6, we should see a waaaay better showing on MNF than against CIN yesterday.

But I can't help wondering is this: If Cleveland beats ATL on Sunday, will we actually show up on MNF against Baltimore since we wouldn't lose any ground in the division with a loss? I think this is a very legitimate question now, and it is sad, sad, sad that it'd even be a question worth wondering with a professional football team.

Well the defense isn't going to improve especially considering recent injuries.

So we're F'd is what you're saying.
