So I'm watching the NFL Network show "Playbook," and they are previewing the NFC South. They get to the Saints and have soooo many things to say. Let's see if I can rememeber...

Hosts:
Solomon Wilcots
Mike Mayock
Paul Burmeister
Glen Parker
The Saints are one of the most inconsistant and underacheiving teams in the league. This starts at the QB position, with Aaron Brooks showing flashes of brilliant play, only to look like a clown at other times.

Poor scouting has resulted in bad draft picks.

Bad coaching has led to some players not fulfilling their potential.

Front office hasn't addressed the main areas of need in the offseason. They can't understand why the defense hasn't been upgraded with better players since they were last in the NFL last year.
These are not direct quotes, but they are paraphrasing from the hosts of the show. I was a little surprised that they were as harsh as they were, but I agreed with everything they said. Do you think they have an agenda? Maybe they just see a realistic picture of what the New Orleans Saints have been doing for the past few years.

By the way, they said that the Saints should look at Burnett with the #16 pick. I didn't really agree with that. However, some of the footage they showed of him showed a hard hitter.

The guys on playbook are Saint haters, they never have anything good to say about them and the only one that ever has S. Sharp is gone.

I don\'t think they\'re hatin\' on the Saints as much as they\'re wary of them. They don\'t like looking like fools, and when they were on the Bandwagon, the Saints made them look like they were clueless in their picks.The only real consistency the Saints have shown has been the ability to be inconsistent. IMO, some of the players believe they\'re much better than they actually are which explains why they are so erratic...HEAD CASES!!!!!

How can you argue with anything they said -- its all true -- AB looks brilliant one play like a rookie the next play. We wasted 2 number ones on Sullivan -- looks like a bad move so far -- We are relatively inactive for star caliber players in the offseason preferring to go with players with potential -- our coaching is suspect =- I don\'t see an agenda I see them calling it like I see it -- a team with a tremendous amount of talent that consistently plays below their capabilities

Is that why Parker proclaimed that Brooks would have an MVP type season last year (he made the prediction before the season began, and did some severe backpeddling midway through the season).

Saints fans....take those GOLD-colored glasses off and face the truth! These guys aren\'t vested Saints fans like us. They are able to see the team more objectively than we ever could. Sure they don\'t follow the team as closely as we do, but most people can see that what those analyst said is 100% true. I don\'t want them to say anything nice about us because they feel obligated to say so.

Now that being said, I do think that Cris Collinsworth on CBS has it in for the Saints.

There\'s only one way to shut up all the critics... START MAKING BETTER DECISIONS AS AN ORGANIZATION! I hate the way the Falcons are building under Blank& Mora&McKay... We are going to be cellar perennial cellardwellers if we don\'t get better quality scouting,coaching,and management! The first year of Haslett\'s reign in N.O., they were aggressive and dictated to teams they played... Here we come!!!- now they\'re too busy looking for \"the right type of players\"... the hell with that!!!!! Get the best football players you can when you can and coach them to win!!!! We haven\'t been the same team since Zook left!!!!

Did I write this script? Have they been reading my posts? Seriously, I thought I was reading something I had written. Hammer meet nail.

Hey Billy - what\'s up with the media agenda?
