Like being a top 3 offense for nearly a decade?

This is a bad football team. This is a mediocre franchise.

When the Owner and FO can admit this and commit to doing something about it, we will be on the road to excellence.

That's not how good NFL franchises roll, and the Saints are NOT one of the "good" franchises. It's a mediocre record overall with a bright spot in 2009.


How many teams have had better stretches than we have since 2006?
Definitely better:
Giants (who, by the way, have won 2 SBs but frequently looked like shite between)
Steelers

MAYBE better:
Colts (even though we beat them head to head in the SB, I'll give them the edge)
Packers

So, at most, 4 out of 31 teams would prefer their own outcomes over the past 6 seasons to what we accomplished.

The FO has shown NO ability to put ALL of the pieces in place to build a franchise that will consistently win playoff game, after playoff game, over the course of a decade


Playoff appearances in 06, 09, 10 and 11. Wins in all appearances but 10.

Only teams I can think on that level of success in that time frame are NE, BAL, Indy, Pitt, NYG and GB.

People need to realize that the Bucs once won a superbowl. Then they went back to being a dumpsterfire. There is nothing wrong with the OP.

10.5 wins per year over the last five (including the ONLY NFL season without a head coach) is NOT the product of a mediocre franchise.

And bottom 3 on defense during that same period.

This is a bad football team and a mediocre franchis



your title makes no sense. 7 and 9 isn't bad. and a team that has quite a few wins in the playoffs and a SB since 06 is not a bad team... and it's one of the most valuable franchises

I'm sorry, we might not be "superior."

Does that make us "mediocre?"
Please, someone answer me.

The Saints organization has been lauded as being a first class organization by players and coaches (current and former).

The team, this year, has been a poor one, but I fully expect 10+ wins next year with Payton back

Amazing

30ppg and 400 yards every week. Offense's fault for not being all time great...

Welcome to the NFL where your offense shouldn't have to score 8 million points to win. 30ppg should get the job done without a carnival show on defense.


Meh that nfl is becoming a distant memory. Multiple, multiple times this season the offense has gone on a sustained hiatus only to pad stats late in the game. Often times how and when you score those points tells the tale of the game.

There aren't enough synonyms of the word stupid to describe the OP. you could say the pats were lucky to get belichick and Brady. If this, if that. If my aunt had balls she'd be my uncle.

This is what he posted in the Falcons thread:

quote:

Yeah, they are stupid. Dimitroff and Smith, in five years, built up a roster on both sides of the ball -- a roster good enough to get the 1 seed twice in five years -- and they are stupid. Yeah. Meanwhile in the same five years, the Saints roster is slightly improved on O and horribly awful on D.


In his mind, a team that is 0-3 in the PO since 2006 is > a team that is 5-3 in the PO with a SB win.

There is a lot of trash on that defense. It has been like this since the Dome Patrol ended. These a-holes on defense cost this team at least two more Super Bowls.

This is a bad defense but not a completely bad football team.

History bears this out. Can't argue with this one.

Talk about knee-jerk reactions.

We have a bad season for OBVIOUS reasons and suddenly we're a "mediocre" franchise.

Champagne, you can absolutely go frick yourself.

ikr

Since 2006, Payton/Brees first season in New Orleans.. No other team in the entire fricking NFL had more wins than the Saints heading into this year.

OP wrap your little brain around that dumbass.

This is true. The offense wasn't what it has been. But it was still one of the 5 best in the league.

You simply can't watch the Saints this year, or the past 7 years for that matter, and decide offense is where the problems are

Also I want to add. Brees has been shite this season. Not all the blame goes on the defense.
