All of that offensive line shifting positions really showed today as they're looking confused and frustrated with their latest roles...

AP sure seemed to show he still had it, but we weren't running the ball early enough for it to be effective...

Thought Ingram should have gotten more touches than he received; he's in his prime and finally adapted his game...

Marcus Williams is another guy who's growing with confidence and by mid-season should be special, though the season's in doubt...

WTH? WTF? What is going on with rookie DE Trey Hendrickson?!? This kid can't get out of his way - back, hamstring, knee, illness - c'mon, kid...

And lastly why are Ken Crawley and Al Muhammad on the inactive lists? We need even more energy on that defense...

Most Disappointing Player through two games - Sheldon Rankins - can't even provide complementary game to Cam Jordan...
I agree. I really had high hopes for Rankins this season but so far he has done nothing. I don't understand why Al Muhammad is inactive. Like you said we need all the energy we can get going into next week. I also want to see Tommy Lee Lewis used more. Ginn is just keeping his raw talent on the bench.

I don't think we are done either....done giving up points and scoring 1-2 TD's a game on offense.

Re: Somehow I don't think we are done

The Saints are really bad. Gronk's TD was a perfect example of our defense. We almost sacked Brady, almost covered Gronk and almost tackled him. We seem to always be a half step from making plays on defense. The surprising part is unfortunately the offense is not much better right now. We struggle running the ball. We have no big plays and receivers in general just dont get open much. Brees' numbers end up looking OK because in the 4th quarter when teams are in prevent we get some yards. Hopefully when we can get the line healthy and Snead provides a spark when he returns. I thought Tommylee Lewis or Coleman would be able to shine in Sneads absence, but we really miss him right now. Terrible weekend for Louisiana football. Whats worse, getting lit up by Tom Brady or Nick Fitzgerald? Yuk!

Re: Somehow I don't think we are done

The way we looked yesterday, vs. an injury depleted Pats team, I can see us going 0-16, possibly.

Nevertheless, I am a Saints fan. Ive probably seen worse.
I will continue Hoping.
We Hou-Dats will be at the Boot Sunday for the Carolina game.
Got friends going to England.

Screw it. Lets pretend our guys are in The Hunt, and raise holy hell, and
have a good time with it in the Dome. Me & the Viking Princess will be in NOLA for the Lions game.
I'll See some of you in 4 weeks.

Re: Somehow I don't think we are done

I applaud the optimism. As a life long Saints fan, hope springs eternal. But, this season, the coaching staff, and Brees in black and gold, is at most 14 games away from being done. Sorry. That is just the painful reality of the 2017 New Orleans Saints.

Re: Somehow I don't think we are done

This season is far from over and we may very likely be laughing at ourselves by December...

There's no question this team is in a transient phase right now and we're seeing the regurgitation of poor management these past five years plus...

We've been in the "transient phase" far too long. SP's record the last 50 games is 21-29. Saints aren't even competitive & we look like little leaguers on Sundays. I actually thought we would take advantage of Pats short comings who were missing Amendola, Donte' Hightower, Edelman etc. One of our only play makers is the punter .

Not sure if you caught Tony Romo's analysis on how our D was giving out so many different looks in coverage, yet there were repeated mental lapses. It's a bad sign to see KV benched this early & Vonn B has been just as suspect.

We are already close to "wait until next year mode". Outside of Cam, Brees and a few others, I don't see guys playing with any heart.

No, we're seeing better use of the draft with more and more of the draft being turned over to Ireland...

We're seeing much better drafts than we were three, four, five years ago...

Does the team still need organizational change, no doubt; but we've got better talent and better coaching than we had three years ago...

But things are transitioning and while emotions are rightfully running high after two nationally televised embarrassments, things are going to get better...
