How to improve this team for 2008

Unlike most people I am not caught up this emotional roller coaster ride we are on in 2007. This is year 2 of building a team. Yes there are growing pains. The pain for me is the lack of rookie involvement on the field. I am sure it is the same with most of you. We expect to get a couple of instant starters like we did in 2006. But to date the only real contributor has been CB young. Thomas has yet to get involved in the game except as a kick returner....

"We Are Exactly Who We Thought We Were Years Ago"

Posted 11-16-2007 at 01:20 PM by Euphoria

We are no better or no worse than we were 3-4-5 years ago.

Poor and inconsistant play on both sides of the ball. This team isn't built to impose there will on other teams and failing to make adjustments during the game. You can point your finger at anyone and anywhere you like but the Head Coach is responsible. He is to see to it people are doing there jobs and set the tone and philosophy where the team is headed. Also, to fix whats going wrong with the ship before it sinks....

TODAY: November 8th marks the 37 year old record of the longest field goal in NFL history. Tom Dempsey still hanging on to the record he established in 1970. I know this will go unnoticed this year by its good that we take a moment out and reflect on this feat, well ok his foot.

Most Saints become legends based on well that not so good things. Other than that, we have not to many Saints that go off and become NFL Legends. But here read up on a GREAT SAINT LEGEND and an NFL...

Glamore Position in Flux for 2007

Eric Johnson - 28
John Owens - 27
Billy Miller - 30
Ronnie Ghent - 27
Mark Campbell - 31 (IR)

I actually like the group as a unit. Like the defensive unit some youth would be nice. Johnson has teased us with his abilities at TE and we have yet seen him do half the things he can do.

Draft watch

Darius Hill*, Ball State, 6-6, 233, 4.67, Ball State in the 4th

Marques Colston - 24
David Patton - 33...

Since 1998 the Super Bowl has been dominated by the AFC winning 6 of the last 8 Super Bowls and currently enjoying a 4 game win streak. The elite teams in the NFL are resting in the AFC with the likes of Colts and the Patriots. You can also look at several other AFC teams who can be serious contenders to the thrown. While in the NFC it can be a crap shoot.

The problem is that were have all the rivalries gone? When teams seem to excell is when they are being pushed by a rival....
