It's so funny when people don't agree with the team going 16-0 and winning the superbowl everyone gets their feelings hurt. Do I want that to happen too? Of course! Do i want Breaux to be a top shutdown corner in the league? Of course!
But I also have an ounce of realism about the entire situation. Breaux also got torched at times last year and this defense was epically bad. So you may have to overlook my "pessimism" when it comes to the saints defense being much improved through 5 days of camp.
My Agenda...is to look at what is being said by commentators, both of who are ex-professional football players and then say, but we need to wait until they play a meaningful game. I don't know what agenda that is other than to say things sound somewhat better than last year and I am optimistic. 16-0, WTF, that is an exaggeration and if you look at my post they are not sunshine and rainbows.

Much improved vs what my post said- somewhat better than the last two years. You're exaggerating the point I made to fit the narrative you need it to fit in order to come back with a comment like that.

Somewhat better is not the same as much improved...second, I openly stated but we need to wait and see what happens when a meaningful game is played. I never said much improved.

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Exactly what the post said- have to wait for a meaningful game, agree.

Sorry Spk, that wasn't to suggest you specifically said those things as much a rhetorical comment about predictions and the crazy optimism that often times gets thrown around on the board.

I as much as anyone desperately want to see improvements and have to constantly remind myself to temper the expectations I have when I hear the constant reporting of how amazing everyone is in camp. Other teams I am sure are reporting the same great things about their players, and it just doesn't necessarily translate into W's and record breaking stats.

Agreed!! But I still find myself at times wanting to beat the drum a little . But on the flip side I bought what was said about the D before just to watch a bunch of grown pro. atheletes play like a pee-wee team.

Agreed. How many times do you see a team look phenom in preseason and then **** the bed. I am right there with you. I think things will be better just because (like SP said) they can't get much worse, but how much better...who knows at this point

Re: Improved D says Bobby and Deuce

yeah you can't get any worse so saying improved is a safe bet but the problem this time of year is when all the bandwagon gathers and talks we are the best D on paper we have the best O on paper what do you mean we aren't going to the SB. We should beat the Falcons 100-0.

You have to take each game - game by game.

Re: Improved D says Bobby and Deuce

haha you can tell it's training camp, getting a little salty.

At this point, for me, other games can go either way -- as long as we clip the dirty bird's wings, and cause cam newton's season implode. I bet Harper can't wait to hit that clown in the jowls.

Last year Delvin Breaux looked great in TC. How did that translate?
