Why are you 0-2 with your back against the wall?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Meanwhile the dirty birds put up 35 on a Oakland team many believe are a legitimate playoff contender. Saints better get in a good week of preparation, film study and treatment. Division rival games are never easy....

I wonder how badly the Giants hurt yesterday?

Yep.

This is the third straight season the Saints have started out 0-2. Both seasons ended with 7-9 records.

Monday is a must win.

Re: Why are you 0-2 with your back against the wall?

I'm not even sure that either of these teams are any good. Both had around the same record as we did last year and the Giants were in an easier division with Romo being hurt and all.
Yes we played hard and with heart but good teams win these close games. We lost because we weren't the better team.

Main thing I am exited about is it looks like by next year our defense could be special. It will likely be Brees last shot at a SB with us so I would like to see improvement throughout the season. Let's face it though, we aren't winning anything this year. Our schedule only gets harder.

Had we been manhandled in either game then dooming and glooming might be appropriate. But considering we have all divisional games remaining and sit only a game out of first it is too early to be giving up.
I am sorry, telling the truth about our record is now considered doom and gloom and giving up?

Re: Why are you 0-2 with your back against the wall?

Reading some of these comments is comical. We are 0-2 but we looked good doing it lol. That is funny thanks The fact of the matter is your 0-2. In your last 14 games preseason included your 3-11. In 5 years you have started 0-2 or worse 4 times that's awful no matter how much you try and spit shine a turd it's still a turd

7-19 inc preseason since August 2015. That tells you everything. Yes injuries and suspension happen but they happen to everyone. Yes we have lost close games but good teams wins more than they loose.


There is no "it was a close game" come next week. Its win or bust.
