Harper and Evans wouldn't even be here if we had addressed the roster needs accordingly.

Harper is done, I didn't think he could get any slower but he has.
He had the angle on a 3rd down run and still lost the race.

Re: Why can other teams succeed when injuries occur

While some would argue that blaming all the injuries is cop out, but I'd still identify it as the biggest reason why the Saints are struggling.

And IMO you can't compare the Vikes and the Saints. The two teams are in a very different situation both from the standpoint of the roster and the staff.

1) Poor draft Choices
2) Lack of draft choices.
3) Poor Free agent signings.
4) Injuries.
5) Payton is not Bellicheck.
6) Poor scouting.
7) Causing loss of CAP control, signing left overs from other teams.

Re: Why can other teams succeed when injuries occur

At this point it doesn't matter how much money you have left since there's absolutely no proven talent available that you can sign to combat the avalanche of injuries.

I don't care how great your front office or roster is - any team that would face the amount of injuries the Saints have - would have serious obstacles in staying competitive.

Just look at the CB position...

Lewis (cut because of health)
Breaux
Williams
Wilson
Swann

That's your top 5 corners heading into this year - all sidelined because of health issues.

Physical conditioning is not so much the problem. The small assumption is we are overworking the players in that department.
