Room for Optimism.....oh yeah

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We are 21st against the run and would be 4th against the run if we take away that 75 yard run by the Raiders. We are 10th in total offense and will get better. We wouldn't have lost either game ...

Room for Optimism.....oh yeah

We are 21st against the run and would be 4th against the run if we take away that 75 yard run by the Raiders.

We are 10th in total offense and will get better.

We wouldn't have lost either game without all of the injuries in our secondary. It changes everything in the game. Our defense has done a great job considering. When you look at the numbers it doesn't give you the entire picture. We've lost 2 games by a total of 4 points, 4 points, we're talking about 4 points.

2 pass interference calls on the Raiders last drive, secondary injuries and the FG miss killed us.

The field goal miss, secondary injuries and the fumble killed us.

Now we know what we have to do so let's get it done Payton. WE NEED VETS IN THE SECONDARY NOW! GET TO TRADIN!

Everyone hop back on the bandwagon and get this s**t started!

Whilst you're correct, it's the same every year. We have made a habit of losing by close margins or with seconds to go.

Let's hope with players coming back we can make some kind of run.

I don't blame the loss on Breaux, Swann or PJ being injured. Getting people back will not help us. Lighting a fire under our own ass and realizing that scoring 0 points off 3 Giants turnovers is unacceptable will.

On the positive side, our defensive line looked a lot better than last year, definitely did not get gashed between the tackles like last year.

If Fleener could catch a pass we would have won. The team does have more grit than I have seen in years. That's one thing the youth movement brought to the table. I think our year is next year. A year of experience is going to go a long way.

Re: Room for Optimism.....oh yeah

The above posts sum up my thinking and I'm OK with the direction of things compared to the last few seasons.
I'm a glass half full kind of person in general, but 0-2 really doesn't feel so bad when I consider the effort and promise of our young doodz.
SUNSHINE is still pumping in my veins.
A loss to the Hated Atlantiens would really suck though.
But, I'm confident that I will feel wonderful after we beat the brakes off of those fools next week!

Definitely room and reason for optimism. I'm still beating the drum for the defense. Most of them are greener than the turf they're playing on, but I believe they have some fight in them this year. If...and it's a big if...they can learn from their mistakes and grow, watch out.

Thank you. I was about to stop coming to this site until after we beat Atlanta.

Re: Room for Optimism.....oh yeah

We are only 1 game back in the division and I've seen some real potential with this team. Far too early to start discounting this team. Everything I've seen this season has been a move in a positive direction from last year, even though we are 0-2. The wins will start coming when everything clicks together.
