Do we as fans have a responability for the player culture and not supporting Brees as we did before ?
In 2009 a ton of youtude videos and songs came out to support the guys. I noticed in 2010 that was not happening anymore.
Remember



Do you think we are at fault in some way by not creating the belief environment that we know Brees thrives on? Did we mess up ?
We dont show up at the airport that much anymore. Are we as fans a problem and not supporting the team as we used to ?
Song wise and youtube its a 100% yes in my book. But what do you think ? We know the guys watch our stuff. Are we lazy ?

I think they're not doing well because they can't cover/rush the passer most of the time.

Re: Are Saints losing because of us

I've been a Saints fan since birth (1972). The Who Dat song is the main one I remember. A lot of people came out of the wood work when the Saints were on the road to the SuperBowl. If the fans had a real stake in our "Support" of the team, The Dome Patrol would have won at least 2 SuperBowls. IMO, if the team isn't playing like professionals because the fans aren't singing songs and what not, then we have a bigger problem than we thought.

Hell no... That's absurd. They can't even win at home anymore but the Dome is still packed.

Players don't give a flying **** about what fans do. As long as they have fans attending games and pulling for them they are fine. Sticks and stones scenario

Re: Are Saints losing because of us

It's a great thread and question.
I think after we won Superbowl 44, Saints fans pined for a second ring.
2011 was the year that wasn't meant to be.

2009 was simply put - a bandwagon haul for Saints fans. Undefeated and the way we played was unreal and almost magical. That team is arguably one of the best teams in NFL history.

When you reach those heights it's hard to replicate the magic.

Re: Are Saints losing because of us

The feeling and emotions of the '09 season will never be replicated. From '67 to '08; the only thing we could do is pray and wonder if we would EVER make it to the SuperBowl. 3/4 of the way through '09, we could taste it. It was on everyone's mind. Even to people who weren't Saints fans.

So has the flame died? No. We did like any child would do when he/she taste that first piece of candy. We want MORE! We went from being able to be satisfied with 7-9, 8-8, 9-7 seasons to; "9-7? NINE AND FREAKIN SEVEN!?!?! JEEBUS WE SUCK!!!!!!!". The flame hasn't died. It's a full blown forest fire, burning out of control. It's burned so far out of control that we can't see through the smoke. I include myself in that.

Re: Are Saints losing because of us

All we need to start it up again is the Interception by Wash then the strip to return it for a TD play to happen again. I think that was a spark that anything could happen and that the ball and football Gods were finally looking at us.

Then Beating the Patriots.. I don't think at that point there was much doubt that we were on a SB run the rest of the year.

Re: Are Saints losing because of us

You can't get the stuffy season ticket holders in the middle on their feet except to go to the Clubhouse for food. Last time I sat down there I swore to never do so again. I got told to sit down and stop screaming.

Now I sit up top.
