Why even play next season?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ok. We haven't signed anyone yet. And according to just about everyone, we won't, because we never do. Or if they do, it is guaranteed they'll be a bust. We've never brought in a FA that was worth anything during ...

Ok.

We haven't signed anyone yet. And according to just about everyone, we won't, because we never do. Or if they do, it is guaranteed they'll be a bust.

We've never brought in a FA that was worth anything during the entire Haz regime, so we never will. The only guy who is any good that we ever got is MM, and that is only because we HAD too; sheesh, we blow.

We are terrible in the draft, just look at Sully. After the first round, we never get anyone who is any good.

We never address areas of need in FA.

We have the same coaches (and I actually agree with this one), so what kind of improvement can we expect - NONE.

May as well just call it now. 0-16 next year. Yup. Anyone who thinks that we can be any good at all must be on crack.

We sucky, suck, suck.

Thank goodness there are so many around here who believe there is even a glimmer of hope!

Glad to have you as a Saints fan. Not. There is always a glimmer of hope and free agency nor the draft is over yet. At least we won\'t finish below .500 and in a weak NFC, there is always a chance of a miracle.

One last note on Sully, although he is a bust, he was rated at the second best DT at the time. Not only by us, but by many other teams and scouts.

I believe Darren Howard was a 2nd rounder and Montrae Holland a 4th rounder. Courtney Watson also was a 2nd rounder and Colby a 7th. Kenny Smith was a serviceable DT when healthy and he came in the 5 round. Gardner is still on the team and he was a 7th rounder.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Papz - I think you missed the sarchasm.

Perhaps you should have a word with the guys around here who think all the things I wrote here? I\'d be careful though, they don\'t like guys who think that there may be something good around the corner, or under that rock, or in any one in the organization\'s head...

agree with papz. Also, grabbin\' Deuce when he had questions marks and also Charles Grant when everyone thought he was just a \"workout warrior\". BUt then on the other hand their is T-buck,Connell,Sullivan,Stinchcomb etc. So i would say they are batting about .500(very ironic)

JKool -

I understand your frustration with \"some\" fans being negative about most everything. Then again, I can understand why \"some\" fans are negative about this team.

I try and be positive about things unless I\'m given a good reason to be negative. Right now, I\'m pretty negative about free-agency. But, it isn\'t over yet and it\'s no need to get all worked up about something that hasn\'t happened yet.

Some fans are going to bad-mouth this team until they go to the playoffs. That\'s just the way it is. But that stuff gets old pretty quick on a message board. I prefer not to be that way because I\'ve got much more important things to worry about other than how the Saints are going to stink it up.

As bad as this team might have been, they\'ve been on the cusp of making the playoffs every year. I have my own ideas of what they need to do in free-agency. But, if they only take care of offensive tackle and safety, I\'ll be happy. Can\'t fix everything!!!

Not only is it hope, it\'s even likely we could make the playoffs.

Wow. I think you are frustrated Kool and want to take that frustration out on someone, so I guess those who aren\'t enamored with doing NOTHING in free agency have to bear the brunt. Cool. I will. But maybe you should be frustrated with this team who does nothing to go that extra step to put this team on the right track. MAybe instead of defending at every turn, take a second and say Hey, they haven\'t done jack and I am pissed too, but I hold out hope, or whatever. But making some outlandish statements to belittle others pessimism I would have thought was below you. I guess not. School\'s in hey Gumbo? You got a new student.

May as well just call it now. 0-16 next year. Yup. Anyone who thinks that we can be any good at all must be on crack.
I don\'t recall ANYONE saying that, but again I feel your frustration is mis-directed. Usually when you have to go to this kind of extreme to make a point, someone has gotten the better of you in a disagreement. You are optimistic, as I have said 100x, great, but there\'s no need to make light of feelings others have that are opposite. But I guess this is where this goes now. I hope it got your point across. :shrug:
