Payton has wasted the latter half of a HOF QB career. He is the one common denominator. He needs to go.

is it sad for me to be honest that I don't want SP to win if it means keeping him. unless we were going to make the playoffs i'd rather just lose so we fire him. four years and same tired product.

I knew our defense would be bad today... We all did. But the Patriots defense is awful, and I thought this offense should be able to reach the thirties against them. What do they do? They put up over 400 yards and score 20 big ol' points.

Meaningless stats leading to meaningless offensive rankings, but not nearly enough points when they need them. Yep, this all sounds familiar.

I NEVER want to lose a game. If I ever get to the point that I ever wish for my Saints to lose I would just as soon be hit by a truck.



What the hell?

Missing Snead is huge. He has been Mr. Automatic 3rd Down Conversion.

The inability to convert on 3rd downs has been the culprit on offense.

Man you not lying. our Offense looks so stagnate this year. Unimaginative is the word that fits best. Our O line is also a mess. So with a offense that can't score points and a defense that can't stop anything, this is a recipe for failure.

There in lies the difference, my friend.

I watch my Saints, as I have for 50 years, for the game to game entertainment value. Win or lose I love my Saints. I also know that there is nothing I can do to change anything about present or future outcomes. I get into the games as they unfold, of course. But then I let it be until the next week or the next season as I know I have no impact whatsoever on anything to do with the success or failure of my Saints.

Can't wait until next week!

14-2, Baby!
