I have to be 100% honest, if I didn't live in Louisiana I wouldn't give a fat rat's ass about this team!

Since 2006 they have had the opportunity to be something special but have managed, for the most part to piss it away.

Sometimes I wish the Saints would leave New Orleans so that I wouldn't get upset about them losing to teams they should dominate, which IMHO is how this season has gone.

Awful day. Felt like a team displaced due to mother nature but, there was no mother nature involved, only awful play. Colston, love the guy but time to go. Drops are now consistent. It's time. Cooks, find a way to get open like other #1 draft picks. Keeps hanging out way underneath the marker and still can't get open. He pretty much sucks. The only one making plays is Snead.

I feel your pain WhoDat!656. I left New Orleans in 1988. Lived in Alabama (no NFL) for 12 years and South Carolina (no NFL) for 9 before moving to Indy 6 years ago. I'm still a Saints fan but don't live and die over them.

I don't live in Louisiana anymore but I still live and die by my Saints. I'm disappointed of course. But I don't wish I wasn't a fan anymore. I've seen team much worse then this one. Lol.

Re: Games like this...

I'm of the school of thought that they did it before (SP/ML), they can do it again. No one else in the history of our franchise has taken us to the levels we have seen. Ever. If we clean house and our HC & GM move on (& they will/would get scooped up in a heartbeat), well that's not anything I'd personally like to see. To me, it sends us into a downward spiral at the worst possible time. If I were N.O. brass, I would give these guys my utmost confidence NOW MORE THAN EVER, and then challenge them to FIX it like they did the first time!!!

I guess that's why I'm not an owner of a sports franchise but that's how I feel. One of the best things about this regime, even more than one lombardi was relevance they brought to the Saints. I hope we don't lose it completely.

SP is just worn down, I have a feeling he's gonna leave after this year. I don't think he really wants to be here now.

In a way its understandable. First you have the shape of the organization when he got here. There was great success but I bet you it took a great effort and a lot of energy. Then you had the vicodin scandal. A divorce. Then the whole bounty gate debacle. It hasn't exactly been a smooth ride.
