Re: OK, so we're 1 game off pace...

I front-loaded my traveling to games this year in case it was bad. Suspicion: Confirmed.

The only player who played like a super star today has never started an NFL game until today. I think we've found the future QB, no questions asked, it's the remainder of the team that is a question mark.

[edit - stand corrected, Luke started a game for the Bucs in '07]

There were basic-blown coverages and lack of coverages that were mind-boggling. We put a rookie OLB in front of Greg Olson and he wasn't even stuck to him. Once Olson got by him he was to let him disappear into our backfield only to be found by the football. WHAT?!

I honestly think Rob Ryan lacks basic coverage concept. He makes no corrections and repeats errors over and over.

The constant bickering between Ryan and Payton reminds me of two brothers who fight at every opportunity and blame each other for everything. There were times that Ryan was screaming and ranting BACK AT PAYTON. Unbelievable.

Sean Payton has lost control of this team.

HERE WE COME, TA GE' CHU!!!!

So the consensus was after 5 games we'd be 2-3 or 3-2 at best.

If we win our next two we're right back on our 10-6 pace.

I ain't bailing.
I'm with you. You know as well as anyone that I am usually pretty negative but there I something about this team that makes me think its not over.

Re: OK, so we're 1 game off pace...

I'd like to think optimistically & hope we can pace then overtake the Panthers & Falcons. We are 3 games back with 13 to play. We can gain 3 games on them head-to-head. However...

Right now, we can't stop anybody on defense and cannot put pressure on any QB on any team in this league. Our offense is stale, predictable, & can't score TD's efficiently in the red zone. We have missed two extra points which have come back to bite us in the last 2 games and we give up unreal field position after we score on return yardage.

We basically suck more than all teams in all 3 phases of the game; 0-3 confirms this right now. Yes, we have some flashes of brilliance like Murphy's punt return today and Kiki's sacks and Swann's coverage...love seeing this and I am excited when all the lights click on consistently for all of them.

But you are what your record says you are. 0-3. A young, "uncoached" team along with your future HoF QB injured for 1 1/2 of those games.

It can be reversed. These youngsters are talented...they are our hope. They must overcome our coaching staff.

Really... luke is the future?

Hope you don't mean that. He is nothing more than a backup. He played ok today but nothing great lots of short passes and a great pick at the end of the game.

Re: OK, so we're 1 game off pace...

I think they can win 11 games. But, reality creeps back in and I see them winning 6. The offense just has no margin of error with this defense. A simple penalty, dropped pass, or turnover leaves them coming up short.

The defense has no pass rush and isn't good at stopping the run. They have no play-makers at all and frankly just aren't coached well on top of that.

I love my Saints and so far have no problem rooting for and being hopeful on Sundays. They are competing. They have been in every game at the end. This week against a Romo and Bryant less team, at home in the dome, is the season. If they can't rise up, show up, and make something happen, it's time to pull the plug on the aging veterans and coaching staff.

Couldn't agree more.

Not bailing on the team, would never stop supporting, but we are the laughing stock now.

Time to make significant changes.

It's not that we're losing.

It's the ways we're losing. Dropped passes, no pressure, wide open receivers....breakdown after breakdown.
