Re: I think I am slowly learning something here

I'm sure Coach Payton is thrilled with you for putting us "casual Saints fans" in our place.

Seriously guy, remove your head from your own behind and stop believing you are on some sort of pedestal.

It's normally pretty easy to see why a team lost a game, us "casual fans" talk about the problems but admit we have no control and therefore, have no need to analyse. Seriously, the game is done, why over analyse and then brag about it, life's too short.

One must have a life to begin with before deeming it too short, diz.

Stop with the "we" crap... You've admitted you only follow the Saints for fantasy purposes.

People like myself, JP, and Hagan probably analyze this offense better than anyone here. Not including the Ingram stuff, we have been right on this offense not doing what it used to.

My posts are all over the place and it leads to me making more erratic posts because I am arguing with those who not do their research or study the game. I cannot argue with unintelligence.
Will, if you do use statistics like you say you already know that they can never tell the real story, only a small part of it. Sean has said as much. He ignores stats most fans argue about and focuses only a handful as useful such as third down conversion percentage. I would expect you would find many folks on this site use analytics in their professional life.

The offense is still very good but not dominant. It may very well be dominant this year. Our O line is better than it's been since the 2011 season. Yes, the offense does impact the defense and vice versa. Complimentary football. But the vice versa is the reason this team has not done well. Drew has bad games. It's not always the defense's fault. But it usually is of late.

Will(insert team name here)81 doesn't use statistics at all. He does appear to make some up at times, but what he mostly spouts are useless diatribes about how the Saints have let down his fantasy teams in the past.

Re: I think I am slowly learning something here

Most of the Saints players are out playing golf or similarly enjoying themselves, it's the offseason. There's nothing of consequence going on right now. Just like the NBA conference finals .

The sky isn't exactly falling right now.

Re: I think I am slowly learning something here

I wouldn't take the liberty of inserting yourself into a group with those two. They are rational adults that know what they are talking about and have something educated to say. You on the other hand are an attention seeking child who likes to blather about stats and how YOU want to see the game. You just like to see how many pages your threads will get.
