I'm not a falcons fan or a bucs fan. In fact if I ever turned on the saints, it would be for the colts or packers. Those are my second and third teams. But I'm not that type now(I turned on KC years ago). However, I'm starting to hate the fans because they root for stuff that's holding us back.
We're one of the youngest teams in the NFL.

Re: There is more I hate about the saints than like right now

Well you have to deal with the hand your are delt. You are trying to win so that means you put the best men you can find out on the field. Doesn't matter if they are 24 or 99.

Some young players don't get better with experience some get shell shocked and fold under the pressure. Its a double edge sword.

I agree there is more I dislike than I like about this team. One if we did in fact start a youth movement then we should have traded away Brees. Start clearing cap space and stock piling picks

53 man roster, and you dislike more than 26 players on the team?

And we started the youth movement 2 years ago. We're one of the youngest teams in the league. (Edit: Defense age)

Actually, we're still one of the older teams. But really, this doesn't mean anything. The Saints average roster age is only a year and a half older than the youngest team in the league. I don't think there's ever been a correlation between the average age of the roster and success in the NFL. And there is only a 2.08 year difference between the youngest team and the oldest. And, keep in mind, even one outlier can have a drastic impact on this list. For example, Drew increases the Saints average age by just over .2 years. Without Drew, the Saints would drop to 19th on the list.

Average age per rosters as of 53 man cut off.

1. Rams - 25
2. Browns - 25.08
3. Packers - 25.36
4. Jaguars - 25.43
5. Broncos - 25.47
6. Chiefs - 25.54
7. Seahawks - 25.6
8. Buccaneers - 25.7
9. Chargers - 25.73
10. Bears - 25.85
11. Titans - 25.87
12. Cowboys - 26
13. Raiders - 26.02
14. Giants - 26.02
15. Patriots - 26.07
16. 49ers - 26.08
17. Cardinals - 26.09
18. Lions - 26.09
19. Texans - 26.17
20. Dolphins - 26.19
21. Jets - 26.23
22. Bils- 26.3
23. Bengals - 26.3
24. Steelers - 26.34
25. Redskins - 26.36
26. Saints - 26.4
27. Ravens - 26.43
28. Eagles - 26.49
29. Colts - 26.52
30. Panthers - 26.53
31. Vikings - 26.58
32. Falcons - 27.08

Yeah, I corrected it on another thread. We're one of the youngest defenses, not teams.

Brees, Strief, Finnegan, Laurenaitus, Kuhn and Harper skew the team age up a bit.

And notice the difference between top 5 and bottom 5 is only 1 year? I think its a meaningless stat.

I agree, the average age of a team means absolutely nothing when it comes to team success. Age really only comes into play when determining contracts of individual players. The Rams have been the youngest team in the league for 5 years running and they haven't been to the playoffs since 2004.
