Re: What to do next week versus Tampa?

Obvious to me is you play all of the young guys. Hopefully learn who wants to be here and come up short on the scoreboard. I would certainly sit Gallete to eliminate that bonus. I would sit Drew and make him think about the INT"s all offseason. Unless Jordan has incentives I would play till his tongue was dragging the turf. Every D snap, all ST's and maybe even make him play some on Offense. Make him so frustrated he quits for good.

Never mail it in. Bring your A game with you B side. Take one of the guards out each half and see which one is the weakest link or who performs better when the other guard isn't in the game. Most likely one of them is gone next year. Also, let me see what Lelito has for crying out loud.....Sit Goodwin.

I agree. I do not agree with with , well, let it go for a higher pick.

Saints will be in high draft as it is.

You play to win each game and they should play to win each game and each qrtr.

That seems part of the many problems for this year.

"Oh well, the other guy is running too fast and is almost in the redzone so I'll just do a light jog behind my opponent."

"Oppsy daisy. I dropped the ball...again."


Finishing 8-8 would been good to be .500 , save face, some kind of pride.
Now, they are 6-9.
Next week, 7-9 or 6-10.
I think 7-9 is better, but still a losing season and still mailing it in for an unproven draft picks, trades, regrouping, etc. for 2015.

Good idea. Let these guys get out there on the public field and try to secure their place for next year. Maybe they can stay on Saints practice field or maybe go elsewhere . Maybe some can show up and out too . Being hungry 2nd, 3rd string can make you do that.

In case Carolina wins, I would want to win out to avoid the third place curse.
