this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Since this is a poll, why not add.... "who do ya'll think will win the south the season?"...

Not at all. But it definitely doesn't help, we are dead last in a lot of categories. Dead last in defense for the past couple years, can't get a defense right under Sean Payton and now leading the lead in dead money.
So no, I would sat we are the laughing stock. We are just a average nfl team that won't get it right for years to come.

I think we have slipped into mediocrity. If back to back seasons of 7-9 aren't mediocrity I don't know what is. Actually 8-8 is mediocre so what's that make us?
I'm not talking about wins and losses anyway. I'm talking about our dead money and a front office that LOOKS like its incompetent.

I'm curious about this myself, because I wonder how much longer the organization will go before they might start to consider maybe, just maybe the issue(s) are some of the coaches. Players come and go but some coaches remain there and yet the results are the same or similar. Often (especially in the past 3+ years) I've wondered if the organization is just too loyal to some of these coaches.

The best thing that happen to this organization wasn't Sean or Mickey, it was actually Greg Williams.

I think we miss Kromer too although until this season our offense has continued to be bad ass. As soon as Kromer left though Drew started throwing a lot more interceptions based on pressure.

How Vitt has kept his job baffles me.

I dunno. Losing to the Raiders in your home opener on a two point conversion for the win in the final minute kinda does make you at least a punchline if not the laughing stock.

I think Loomis is spread out too thinly. He doesn't have time to run two franchises. He needs to focus on the Saints again.
