preseason

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; honestly gang, we all have to ask ourselves what we would rather.... would you rather the saints come out and dominate the preseason, not learn much because of a pseudo-sense of contentment, and then get thrashed by teams that learned ...

preseason

honestly gang, we all have to ask ourselves what we would rather.... would you rather the saints come out and dominate the preseason, not learn much because of a pseudo-sense of contentment, and then get thrashed by teams that learned their strengths and weaknesses and worked on them in preseason OR would you rather the saints take their licks in preseason, figure what works and accentuate that, figure out what doesn't work and forget that, and be a more balanced, prepared, hungry team when the regular season gets here? i vote for the latter, even if i get sick everytime i see the saints lose a preseason game... preseason losses are so much better than regular season losses, wouldn't you agree?

RE: preseason

I'd rather see us dominate the preseason and take it into the regular season. Granted it's a preseason loss, but who wouldn't rather having the scores switched. Not only would it be a sign of the team progressing in the right direction, it would have instilled confidence in the fans.

Next stop... New England.

well, papz that would obviously be ideal, but i was asking which of the two, if you had to choose between them, would you rather.... you chose option 3, which doesn't count.... i mean the preseason record really doesn't matter... just ask the carolina panthers, who won the last 10 preseason games they've played, which includes last year's 4-0 preseason, in which they finished the year out of the playoffs

Neither then...

I'll take the first statement of the first scenario and the last part of the second. :P
