The same could probably be said on the other side of the coin though.

There is a lot of national news about us and most ain't positive.

I would love to hear some opinions from fans of other teams.

OR
Is The Dude the laughing stock of the board?
It is the second choice. I belong to team boards all across the league and for the most part the only fans that comment about a supposed cap and dead money issue for the Saints are uneducated Saints fans. Those few that do bring up the subject are only repeating what they have read by those same uneducated Saints fans.

I was wrong in my OP. Apparently because of your holier than though know it all attitude you are the laughing stock.

Injuries have killed us but I think its problems in the front office that separates us from the Browns.

Not holy. Simply not ignorant as to facts. Nor too stubborn to admit them.

Oh, and it is "holier than thou", not "holier than though".

This has to be a decent candidate for worst thread of the year.
But to answer the actual question, no. The Saints are not the laughingstock of the league. Not even close.

Re: Are the Saints the laughing stock of the NFL?

given our offense despite the games the FO plays with the OL since the super bowl I am sure the NFL is amazed at the saints

Now given the the FO picks of DC since the super bowl and the moves those coaches have made the NFL is sighing and thank god we have screwed up.

I agree with Hagan. We are in danger of slipping in mediocrity. I don't see any miracle turn around. The organization cannot be held accountable by anyone unless Benson himself steps in and shakes this up I feel as Loomis is overextended and after a litany of errors probably not all his fault someone has to consider holding this management team responsible.
