Re: Preseason Football 101

It's very possible some of us just refuse to be the Manchurian candidate of fans. We actually see through our eyes and see this team isn't good at anything except QB. Yes going on record to say this team will not have a winning year. I highly doubt they reach what they did last year. My prediction 6-10 is the best I can see us being. So go ahead and say he is a idiot but come Jan. I'll be here and let's just say guys like you Asylumquido and others will have excuse after excuse and defend the coach and front office til your blue in the face.

Besides it's my opinion we suck I'm entitled to it just like you are entitled to yours. but to say people are idiots ,buffoons,non football educated is just wrong and as a so called ambassador you should be ashamed to have that moniker and how dare you in my opinion cause excuse me sir who the hell are you i dont see your name on the teams website as anyone connected to the organization. Your just another Tom Dick And Harry with a opinion just like the rest of us

Re: Preseason Football 101

You know what really sucks? Loosing the first game of the season at home.
Should that happen it will set the tone, once again, as it did in the last 2 seasons. On the positive side it would be a confidence booster to win that first game. This is where the focus should be for coach & the team.

Now it's possible to see some trends in the preseason. Some I've seen this preseason:

1. The defense that will hit the field in September is improved from the last two years. Better rush, better coverage, less penalties, better communication, less mental errors.

2. Most of the starting offensive skill players are showing promise.

3. The O-line needs work. There have been not so good plays from starters such as Peat, Strief, and Lelito. Also there have been some blitz pickup issues with Spiller.

4. The team has been sloppy with the ball from 1st team to 4th team. Too many turnovers. Period. This more than anything else is worrysome.

So what I'd really like to see is 3 and 4 cleaned up in the first half of the next game. If Brees comes out of the half clean and there are no turnovers, then things will be looking up in terms of the regular season.

good stuff here

I'm not talking about preseason wins, I'm talking about how they look. Shoddy offensive line play and turnovers will definitely carry into the regular season. Looking flat and vanilla on the other hand won't.
We look like the kind of bad that will carry into the regular season. Our offense does anyway.

There were threads labeled "it's just preseason" each of the last two years and we know how that turned out.
I agree about the continuous sloppy play and the shat play of the oline. That can be fixed when it happens once, when it becomes the norm it is the norm

I can't disagree with you because the oline looks so bad that I don't think we can fix that in the next 2 weeks. To be honest I don't think we are a bad team minus our oline..we need help or this is going to be a long season

Re: Preseason Football 101

Per SP:

Sean Payton some of the Saints' run game problems can be attributed to just running the "training camp offense" instead of game-planning. But he stressed that "it needs to be better."

Re: Preseason Football 101

blame it on who he wants but the O still sucks. Moving Peat around not only hurts Peat but it hurts the entire unit. These guys take more time to gel than any other position and by moving around so much it just means the whole line will be difficult to bring together to play as one.

Re: Preseason Football 101

Funny how every year we all go through this starting with the Draft,
Off-Season Trades, Coaching Changes and Training Camp.
Also wondering which Benson family member is getting the shaft
and whether we should keep Drew and for some reason we keep
talking about Jimmy. But in the end the seasons under SP have
been competitive and I never feel that we have lost our integrity
at any game. (except for the Redskins Game). For those of us that
have been around from the earlier days of this Franchise it's hard to
forget that old sinking feeling game after game.

Good OR bad - it's just preseason.

And he states exactly what the people I base my input upon. And I stick to my guns. It is idiotic to base any real judgement upon two totally useless preseason games. Once again, it is downright stupid to attempt to project into the regular season what backups and players destined to be cut do in a faux game void of any meaningful game planning on either side of the ball.
