Re: WHAT CAN POSSIBLY MAKE THIS A WINNING THANKSGIVING?

Guido...I blocked you but unfortunately I still see your posts when people quote you. That being said..15-5? Dude...being optimistic is one thing. But 15-5?

That's not logical or rational. Or realistic.

Must be a neat little world you live in. Is there fairy's and talking animals? Are the houses made of cupcakes and the rivers are chocolate?

Lol...dude...if your true and absolute expectation is 15-5...you should stop drinking this early in the morning. But I think you just say that because you LOOOOVE that attention. Lol.

I respect everyone's right to their own opinion. But what you're saying isn't opinion. it's just BS.

I'm sorry, but why must I try to come up with some realistic expectations? I am a fan. I hope for a win every week. Those hopes are periodically not met but I will continue to have them. If that somehow bothers you or anyone else then that is your issue.

I always have and always will expect the very best when it comes to my Saints whether or not others feel it is realistic. Is this somehow wrong? I have never gone into a Saints game since 1967 thinking that the Saints were going to lose. I am usually able to accept the fact when they do not, but I see nothing to gain by having the expectation.

Same. Its why I want to see Book. It has nothing to do with diminished hope. For me its looking forward. I'm old enough to remember Troy Aikman getting the hell kicked out of him his rookie year. 1 win. It. Was. Brutal.

Put the kid in. Under pressure. If he sucks or is overwhelmed put Taysom or Trevor back in. Preach it to the team so they rally around the kid. Let him play it out the rest of the way. Jameis is your starter next year unless this kid pulls a Brady or a Delhomme or even a Brooks. If he's competent at all you know our fans will get behind him. We are starving for a leader.

I would be blown away if Coach actually did it, but I wouldn't be mad at him if he did. I fully expect we're about to drop at least one of our next two. I'd say we will be expected to lose 2 of our next three. If that plays out, maybe Sean would consider it.

Look, we had a WR over the middle...Calloway against Slay I think. Good ball and good coverage. Thomas would have caught it. Colston would have caught it. Irvin would have caught it. Calloway is an NFL WR, but he's not one of those kinds of receivers. That's why he didn't catch it. Brees would have led him a little more. It would have been an even better ball, but still good coverage and I swear Calloway would still drop it. It's why you pay MT a lot more than you pay Calloway.

Book doesn't fix that. We don't have anybody on the roster that'll fix that. These guys will flash. Hope springs eternal. We drafted the kid. Put him in and keep hoping.

C'mon Man...

My wife and I went to the Packers/Cowboys game his rookie year. The Cowboys were horrible. They had nothing to lose putting Aikman in there. The playoffs were not even a dream. But, it was the Cowboys' plan to start Aikman day one. It was why he was drafted. Book wasn't drafted to play at all in 2021 and the playoffs are still a very real possibility. Perhaps if we were somehow mathematically eliminated it might be a possibility. But, with the way things are looking in the NFC the final couple of wild cards spots may very well be open to half the teams in the conference up until the final week.

I am hereby letting everyone know that I have submitted the terms "prebreesian" and "postbreesian" for copyright consideration.

A winning Thanksgiving? Only eat turkeys that commit suicide.
