Outlook for the future

Outlook for the future 


Real disappointing, but what I think you have seen the last 2 weeks is a team and a QB that has had the pressure build and build on them.

0-4 was too great of a hole to dig out of and when they were 0-4 and even 1-5 it was easy to rally the team and have an us and the world mentality.  As the Saints started to climb back out of the cellar the pressure was back and the idea was there---Could they get back to .500, could they make the playoffs?

In the end the pressure was too much and got to Brees and the Saints. 

At this time we do not know what the future will hold for the Saints.  Will Payton be back?  we don't know.  If he is not I don't mind giving Vitt the job.  I think with everyone back on the same page you could see different results.  They will know how to find the run game earlier in the season and take some of the pressure of of Brees and the passing game.  Another year for the defense to learn the scheme and make the necessary changes, draft some new personel and get better.

Good post and insightful as always Tiger.

I feel the same about Vitt.  If we don't get SP back, I wouldn't mind giving him a real shot.

This season had "Doom" written all over it...to much negativity from the start...we were hamstrung without our headcoach...had an interim to the interim head coach lead this team for 6 weeks...totally unprecedented territory we threaded upon...it ain't over yet...and to think we accomplished what we've done so far is amazing....your average team would have gone 0-16 in my opinion.....

Agreed Bubba. 

For me personally, its been a gruelling year as a Saints fan.  We've been called everything in the book by other fans, and we're only fans.

I can't imagine what it must have been like for the guys in the middle of it.

I haven't heard anyone calling you queen-fans so at least you're not that low.    devil

If this team makes it back to 8-8 it will be a great season with everything that has gone down IMO

That would actually be a decent result.

That would be 8-4 after the 0-4 start.

8-8 would be an accomplishment after everything you guys have been faced with.

So after today the best record we could finish with is 8-8 and that is if we won out.

Currently we would pick around 10th-12th.
