Think of it like this. We won a superbowl, there are like plenty of teams who have never won 1. WhoDat till I die!

Re: Games like this...

Never lived in Louisiana, total insanity brought me to this team. Been insane since 1981 and still insane to this day. However we did win a
Super Bowl which I truly thought I'd never live to see. So I'm very grateful for that you see and that's one memory they can't take away from me. When they finally commit me and take away my belt and stuff
I'm just hoping they will leave me my Saints blanket. Who Dat!

Re: Games like this...

It's times like this that I wish I hated football. I envy people who walk in front of a television during a game and have to ask what the score is, because apparently reading the scoreboard right in front of their face is too confusing. Or they ask why the team punted on 4th down when they still had a down left... Being completely unaware of what happens when you don't convert on 4th down.

Those people can just check in and pretend to be fans whenever they feel like it, and not even notice when anything bad is happening. But since I am a football fan, I could never switch teams no matter where I live.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I am 52 and have been a Saints fan since I was old enough to know Louisiana had a football team. I live in Shreveport so it was, and sadly still is, rare to see them on TV.

I didn't get to see a lot of Saints games until the Mora era, so I am well aware of the Saints history.

My point is that there is ABSOLUTELY no reason for the Saints to play they are!

Even back in the 'bad old days' of the 70s at least the Saints TRIED! This bunch is just going through the motions!

I don't see that at all. I see a team that's frustrated and rightfully so. It's hard to win in this league, know it's cliché but that's a fact. This team is struggling mightily but they aren't going through the motions. At least not yet, we'll see as the season progresses. I think people soon forget days of old. I would rather watch this team than an Aaron Brooks & Haslett-led team and I can't even believe I am having to say that. Not even close.

Re: Games like this...

I kinda blame SP for this. He keeps players/staff that he likes instead of what we NEED...Vitt is here because??? Strief is here because?? We let Bushrod leave too early but paid Jimmy?? Mike Bell was the turning point in our run game and we let him leave after the superbowl?? He fires Spags and didn't even give the man a chance to build a defense
