No, I get the fact that our two of our top defensive draft choices who were both poised to have a huge impact both went down with injuries. And I get the fact that our best free agent CB (Lewis) blew out a knee and left a huge unexpected hole in the roster. And I get the fact that our top remaining CB broke a femur and was forced to leave a game in which he would probably have made a huge difference. Every team misses on free agents. Couple that with the key injuries we have faced and many would give up. I am not. This team can still win and I believe in them.

*****ing about things will not make them better, even if they did exist. Can we please stop the *****ing and just pull for our team to win? Or is *****ing simply too important to you?

It hasn't been all bad

Vilma was pretty good.
Lofton wasn't bad
Grubbs was solid
Jabari Greer was excellent
Keenan Lewis was a shut down corner until injuries
Randall Gay worked out well
Darren Sharper helped us get to the Super Bowl
Darren Sproles broke NFL records for the Saints
And we made out pretty well in the Jimmy Graham trade

Re: Saints Cut C.J. Spiller

I do pull for them to win every week like I said in one of my threads I want them to win every game but I know the can't but in my perfect world its what I want them to win every week every single one. Just like everyone else here. However when your front office is cutting their nose off their face with bad moves its tough to be the positive Pete and nor question things they do at times

Take a break, go get some fresh air.

You are taking people critiquing the team way too personally.

It's not like they want the bad moves. They can't read the future. It doesn't do any of us fans any good to worry and stress over what has been or what could have been or what might be because they are all out of our control. The one single thing that is in our control is to pull for them like I know we can all do, win or lose, and leave all of those other matters that we cannot affect aside. THAT is something that we all CAN do.

Re: Saints Cut C.J. Spiller

The reason why people are complaining is we have had a taste of winning and we remember what it was like when we had bags over our heads and we don't want to Go back to that.I sure as heck don't.however if they did I'd still be here but I rather be a fan of a winning team its way more fun

We're together on that, for sure. But the complaining doesn't fix anything and gets in the way of enjoyment and that's what it is all about.

Re: Saints Cut C.J. Spiller

At this point, they should put the dead money figures up on the scoreboard along with the stats during the games every week. Or use the dead money players for the "Get loud!!!" or "Shhh! Offense At Work!" videos. Have dead money players compete in the Copeland's boat race or something. The team should get SOMETHING for their money, because this is getting ridiculous.

Re: Saints Cut C.J. Spiller

See I don't see it as complaining but more of having discussion's about what we as fans feel we need to do to get the ball rolling in the right directions. I don't think anyone actually thinks they can do or say anything that will sway the team in changing anything its more about letting out frustrations or things they would like to see more or less of
