The most important thing for 2015

What was the most important thing that was missing from the 2014 iteration of the Saints?

HEART!!

How many games did you see last year where it looked like they just didn't care? There was no fire. I think back to the 2007 team that got off to an 0-4 start. It was torture watching that after such a great season in 06 but that team never quit. Payton was out there dropping F bombs and and slapping people up side the head. He even benched his all-pro LT and got in face for all the football world to see. They turned it around and went 8-4 to close out the season 8-8.

Last years team was just the opposite. They had multiple chances to lock up a pathetic division and finish with a winning season but no, they got worse when it counted the most.

You have to have talent to be successful in the NFL but even more important is the drive to win. It's time to see if Payton can still get that out of this team. He obviously didn't think some of those guys were all in.

He probably took a look in the mirror too. Hopefully he can get his own inner fire burning again. If he does that we'll have a team to be proud of again. If not it's just a matter of time till he pulls a Dick Vermiel.

Heart wasn't the problem. I saw a lot of effort out there.

The problem was focus, leadership and accountability.

There is nothing good that came out of last season, except that Ingram finally showed up. He was probably the only one on the team that wasn't a tin man.

I call total BS on this. Even several of our players that flat out sucked showed heart.

You guys don't know the difference between effort and results.

^^^^ I dont g.a.s. what you call. I didnt see it and apparently others felt the same way. We were in the crappiest division w a boatload of talent and we couldnt pull out the wins when we needed it. Even got swept by the falcons for the first time in I dont know how long.
