Sometimes change brings concern, which creates panic, which creates rumors and speculation.

No one really knows what is going on, so they begin guessing. And once enough people start making similar guesses, itís perceived as fact. This is the reality the New Orleans Saints recently found themselves in. As they read and listened and watched the reports about what was happening, or supposedly happening, in New Orleans the past few weeks, it was almost comical.

Coach Sean Payton found himself looking down on his screen, reading a report from a New York newspaper that the Jets should or could trade for Drew Brees. There was another one about Cam Jordan being shopped to the New York Giants. He heard the reports that his organization was trying to trade anyone and everyone who wore a Saints uniform last year.

Itís all false. Brees was never discussed in a trade, New Orleans is discussing a long-term deal with Jordan, and there were only a handful of players the Saints were willing to trade.

It might not look like it to the outside, but the team has a calm and measured plan to rebound from last seasonís 7-9 finish. It doesnít involve trading away the quarterback and then trading up for former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. Itís about building around Brees, finding a way to improve last yearís defense, and ultimately becoming better.

The talk is all garbage to him. Itís annoying. But itís something Payton knows he has to deal with.

ďYou just wad that up and throw it in the garbage, and hopefully it doesnít come across your eyes again,Ē Payton said. ďHow do you react to it all? Youíd go nuts. So, tune it out.Ē

Clearly enough people still aren't reading blackandgold.com

Otherwise stories like those would never gain traction.

Our members rock.

Oh, I get it. Sean threw a dart that hit "Tell everyone there is a plan"

Re: While it might look confusing to observers, Saints offseason has been mapped out with clear plan

i am not in a panic really

it is more of a guarded optimism really

defense can not get any worse really. top or bottom of a turd filled bowl at the nfl level really does not mean much.

offense? rhythm for Drew is my biggest concern, he will be throwing to yet another large group of new faces, that takes some time. the OL will need to do some adjusting also in the passing game.

Its the same plan they used when Sean first arrived in NO.

We didn't have a TE like Jimmy so ditch him and get players that fit the mold when they arrived here in NO.
