It was the collars!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; 2012 introduced the new collars signaling the downfall of the Saints' elite run. We bounce back in 2013 but the collars quickly smite us down starting in 2014 keeping us down for the next 3 years. #COLLARGATE Or was it ...

It's was either the collars or Greenbriar.
I blame the collars on that sell-out Goodell.
Greenbriar must have been delivering hookers to players and coaches at every call for room service or something. Our dudes would come back weak and drained.

I believe the collars was the problem. That was some ugly stuff.

Re: It was the collars!

The collars? Maybe. But the Color Rush Crap has got to go, yesterday, along with this soccerizing of the league...

Personally, I don't like when one entity, in this case Nike, is given control over ALL the uniform designs...

Let the individual teams come up with their own concepts where they'll be motivated to put out their best product...

Not sure, don't trust a NFL/Nike bureacracy to have all teams best interest as a priority...

Definitely Greenbrier, the ghost of, was an issue. Texans are cursed now with that ailment.

Yep. Said it before, no Head Coach in the history of the league handicapped himself more than Sean Payton...

That was an awful location for this team...

I love the color rush uniforms, especially ours. The all white is a nice look for us. I want to see some all gold as well and I still want a TRUE blackout uniform with Black helmets and everything.
