Re: Window closed...

True we should have beat Tampa, even though for the majority of the game their D-line looked like pro-bowlers, but after two take aways in the fourth and nothing to show for them, we didn't deserve to win anyway. Tampa was the better team, hands down, and that speaks volumes.

Re: Window closed...

If these losses continue to pile up, we're counting the days until Payton is a color analyst somewhere.

Re: Window closed...

Seasons not over yet! Lets see how things pan out over the next few games before we ditch Peyton, Drew and the Front office staff etc.

Hope this doesn't happen but if we do get to 0-8, then I would probably agree with most of the comments above!

I will still, always, be a Saints fan though!!!

Re: Window closed...

Brees hurt???

Given Payton's accuracy in initial injury reports, he's probably headed to IR - along with our season.

The sky has indeed fallen....

Re: Window closed...

I hate this window closed crap...

This isn't denial, just a different mindset...

We have an opportunity to find out what kind of quarterback we drafted in Grayson...

We just had one helluva draft and though two of the players did land on IR (we knew one was going to be there when we drafted Davis Tull), it was a foundation draft...

I don't want to come across as hating on Brees, but I, for one, am looking forward to seeing this new identity emerge with Anthony, Kikaha et al...

And am especially looking forward to getting rid of these bad and/or high end contracts in Brees, Byrd, Galette among others...

Plus, wouldn't mind seeing us unload Cam Jordan to say, NY Giants (so long as Jeff Ireland is handling the transaction and not Loomis, who usually pays sticker price at Benson's dealerships))...

I really believe we hit rock bottom last season in the Cincy and Carolina Games and we're now going back up...

IF not, we definitely put the sub on the bottom with the loss yesterday, but even still the team stuck together, kept fighting through the proverbial depth charge lumps, and waiting to rise again and send two up the league's collective arse...

And I wanna see us do it with Payton as the Saints head coach...

Actually, that is the one true, legit hit Coach Payton has taken with the fanbase is his credibility with regards to injury reports...

Re: Window closed...

After watching pre-season games twice and the first regular season game I picked Tampa by 5. This team is disfuntional, has been since last year and late season the year before. I have no problem with a losing Saints team but the disfunction comes from the coaching staff. It's time to replace the good ole' boys with fresh blood. There is plenty of talent on this team and a few pieces and a good coaching staff we could be stout pretty quick. I want to see Grason at the helm for quite a few reasons, the main one being how he performs before next seasons draft. From what little I have seen out of him he actually looks like a cool costomer at the helm, but can he keep it up is the question and if so we want have to look any futher than him.
