The amnesiac fans that believe all is well after a few wins, despite the garbage seasons served up by the same leadership?

The season is less than halfway in the books Who Dats.

Re: Saints mailbag: What's the biggest disappointment of the season?

DT3 is where I'm most disappointed...

I'd like to see where this defense could be had checked Fairley out thoroughly as he had known heart ailments, before rushing to sign him to an extension...

We'd have invaluable veteran help on in defensive interior...

Individually, disappointed DT Justin Zimmer who'd opened OTAs and Training Camp with great promise, amazing athleticism, just disappeared as camp progressed...

Man, could we use an athletic DT3 to rotate with Rankins right now; can't help but wonder why the Saints didn't get him more snaps to develop...

Justin Zimmer signed with the CFL Montreal Alouettes where he gets regular playing time, reps at game speed; Alouettes may suck, but he's flashed...

Also, I was disappointed we didn't make a trade for Bills DT Marcell Dareus as the stars were aligned for us to make this deal...

Could you imagine a reenergized Marcell Dareus in our front four right now?

What he could do to help progress the development of Rankins? The load he'd take off of Cam Jordan? The Saints D could be Top 5 with him in there right now...

Losing Anzalone.

Not being able to better use Peterson.

Fleener.

JP, remember when I was sad the Saints let go of McDaniel? Now you know why, they were, to my eyes, significantly more disruptive when he rotated in.

Re: Saints mailbag: What's the biggest disappointment of the season?

The offense the past 3 weeks;

Have become turnover prone
Can't convert third downs
Puts all the pressure on a young D

Still, I'm enjoying being above .500 for the first time in years!!
