The era ended in 2012; we just didn't know it until now!

I'm here at the game and we suck the life out of our own home fans!
This was walking into the game from Champion Square. Granted it was 100 degrees so lots of people taking shelter in shade. You could feel the enthusiasm and excitement.



Midway through the 3rd quarter after there was only 1(one) time fans had to cheer about anything the entire game. People started filing out in droves. In the 40 plus years I've attended opening home games, this was one of the worst. Just remember, the Saints have NOT won a single game this year including preseason. Again, fans would start to get revved up only to be squashed by penalty, turnover, drop pass, long run, bad everything.

Re: Posts of the day

I felt strongly we should have traded both 1's to move up for a WR or DT. This receiving corp is bad, they can't get open or haul in a tough one now and then. Can't do it. It has to be a perfect throw with nobody around and even that might not be good enough. We are better on defense but need another pusher to kill 3rd and long. I have never seen a team get smoked so many times in 3rd and long. It's a real problem.

Frankly I am not surprised. I followed every snap and at a distance it was ominous. Alas.

I agree, but I only remember one stretch (not counting before kickoff) during the game where I felt like the fans were really getting revved up and not waiting for the other shoe to drop. So then when it did, it was instant deflation. I get the feel that if it is not a blow out, there is no faith.
Not that I am saying there should be, just saying.
