Everyone needs to take a breath and relax

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I wanted to win today but the truth is we deserved to be put to pasture. We need a DC with passion. That's the first order of business. 2nd, cut the fat and build a real OL. I don't care ...

I wanted to win today but the truth is we deserved to be put to pasture. We need a DC with passion. That's the first order of business. 2nd, cut the fat and build a real OL. I don't care who needs to be cut or traded but we have to have that side stout while we still have Brees.

I'll settle for players with passion. I saw very little this entire season.

Last years defense was a fluke that set the team back that came back to haunt them this year
It was a back breaking loss that ended our season. It fresh and people are going to want to vent. If it were a few weeks past and people are still crying and haven't moved on... I mean, I'd get it then. Telling everyone to suck it up and move on right away is easier said than done. If someone came to me and kicked my dog, it's going to resonate for a while before I got over it.

The o line is a problem yes but not the biggest
The OLINE is a HUGE ****ign problem. Has been all year.

Our record is due (at least in my opinion) from us losing on both LOS all year long

This is just an observation. Your sentences are the longest sentences without any punctuation that I have seen in a good minute.

Re: Everyone needs to take a breath and relax

The game yesterday, the rungame was non existant -why?
Because it is super predictable and you know what`s coming every single snap.

The passing game was non existant - why?
Because the plays take way to long to, the oline especially the interior is rubbish.

Special teams are horrible -why?
Because Graham is just horrible, we need a young kicker like a Blair Walsh or someone like him that can at least TRY a 50 yard Fieldgoal.. in the freakin Dome. This is just bad and has been like that for years.

So what to change:

Offense: first trade or cut any player that doesnīt have a lot of dead money involved. Rebuild the oline with Lelito and Armstead being the main pieces. Get some nasty players with attitude - but with that I donīt mean dumb players that get penalties. If the O-line creates wholes for the running game then the Passing game will follow. Change the scheme to Zoneblocking scheme maybe? Defenses just keep swarming whenever we call a runplay and when Thomas is in on a running down they know that 70% of the time a screen is coming.. Quick slants, WR screens just mix things up.

Defense: Try SJB in the last game, see what he can do. Sign veterans with leadership skills - in my opinion it was a horrible move to cut Champ Bailey. Should have kept him for leadership reasons. Donīt resign Cam Jordan, what has he done this season? The contract for Galette has been bad enough. Hicks has some talent, but we need players that perform and not just hand money out. The passrush was horrible, and was horrible last year as well from the start of the second half. Defensive numbers were inflated by some early games like the Bills game.

Special teams: get a kicker with a big leg so that we can at least try FG in the 50-60 yd range. restructure the morstead contract.

This team has too much talent to just completely overhaul, but some pieces are so dysfunctional - the oline and dline - that nobody should be safe.

I just hope we simply draft a player like Kuechly, Bowman, Watt.. a guy that`s just all business, no social media drama, want`s to get better and tells other players that are not performing to simply STFU.

Canīt wait for the Offseason and next year. This has been a season with so many up and downs.. Me heading to the Dome from Austria, after the team just won games against the Packers and Panthers fully expecting them to win against the 49ers and Bengals only to see a major beatdown. Then a win against the Steelers only to loose again at home.

Next year can only be better

Re: Everyone needs to take a breath and relax

I hoping we move down in the draft to secure a extra pick. With a probable top 10 pick even moving down to the mid teens should get at least a additional 2nd. Im hoping to see one of McKinney, Perryman or Kendricks in the second

Could also trade our third to move back up for Gurley while we are at it
