In short, yes, we are.

They look like a wet dolphin on dry land trying to drink a cup of coffee.

So in 2014 everyone hammered the defense although we had a bunch of young guys with no real leadership from a veteran presence. However, in 2014 when all was hammering the defense I wasn't as much. I did see the offense struggling in a major way. A lot of people were defending the offense because it was so easy to point out the flaws of the defense. It was easy to throw out stats that would suggest otherwise. BUT IF YOU WATCH FOOTBALL AND/OR KNOW THE GAME you wouldn't deny that the offense wasn't doing much better as well. We got rid of some major offensive weapons. So in the off season to get rid of your best TE (no. 2 in the nfl) and in my opinion an up coming receiver K Stills I knew we were going to struggle even more on offense. Although a lot of people think that Drew is a god I felt that he has no offense threats. No one that would cause match up problems for opposing defenses. Now with the defense vastly improving, our offense is looking like they did towards the end of 2013, definitely looks like they did in 2014. Everyone said I sound like a broken record. No one saw the train wreck that was ahead. Now its apparent in 2 games into this year the very things I said last year, and during this off season has come to light (go figure). Two years in a row I preached this. However, its only 2 games into the season I feel they were very competitive against the cards which I felt was a season determining game. Yesterday we played very flat. However, I do feel its still early in the season, we will win games but not much to say play off caliber. I predict we will go 7-9 and miss the playoffs. I hope I'm wrong but with no notable stand outs on our offense, especially in the wide receiving and TE positions its hard not to think otherwise.
Well, just want to point out that Jimmy Graham only has 7 receptions this year and Kenny Stills only has 3. Don't think they are the reason we suck right now. A declining Evans and Strief and young Lelito, Armstead and new center Unger gives you a struggling OL which in turns puts too much pressure on Brees. The run blocking is terrible and any DE with speed gets around Strief. Fix the OL and you have a much better Saints team.

Good grief, this again?

No one, and I mean no one thought the offense didn't have issues last year.
Remember Brees being called out for his ridiculous int's?

All of the calls for a better interior line? Evans and Goodwin were being criticized weekly.

Colston being called over the hill for his drops and fumbles?

The Ingram and Cadet bashing?

The "forcing" of throws to Graham?

The fans constantly wanting to run the ball more?

Everyone could see the Offense had issues, but most everyone knew the defense was even worse. Its why we have so many new faces on defense.

We have 25 new players on this team, the vast majority play defense for us.

Our defense last year was one of the worst in NFL history, and we addressed it heavily in the off-season, as we should have. I think over half of our defense wasn't here last year.


The easily offended are easily manipulated

Not sure I can say ample amount of time? Drew was heavily pressured and abused most of the game I was watching. I do agree with no one was getting open though.

Yes, this is serious issue because Peat isn't any better at this moment.

I don't do bests or worsts. However we sure ain't good. We look like a team that will not put up touchdowns, our special teams are poor, and our defense looks like they will keep the opposition on the firld at any time.
