In 1993, the Cowboys were defending Champions and lost their first 2 games, including a 19-point blowout loss on the road to open the season, only to go 12-4 and win the Super Bowl that year.
In 2003, the Patriots lost their opening game to the Bills 31-0 and started 2-2, only to finish the seaso...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Why are White/Lewis getting a pass on that last pass play? - Geauxgurt on 9/16/14 at 11:51 am|
I know Robinson committed the holding penalty, but it was White and Lewis that both covered the same guy leaving Hawkins wide open.
Yes, the penalty was horrible, but it only would've put them at the 29 and still a 45+ yard field goal. It was the blown coverage that actually cost the Saints the g...

Right Fricking Here[/quote]
No offense, but Brees said that to try and pump up his image knowing that he wouldn't be asked for pay cut/restructure this past offseason. It made no sense to do so and was more damaging than anything had it been done.
I love Brees, but dude is a true po...

The two worst parts of this are:
1) Peterson wasn't suspended, but deactivated for one game, which means his punishment was getting paid to not play in a game.
2) The Vikings knew exactly what they were doing. They chose to sit him this game to try and buy some face for taking it seriously, an...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: So it's safe to say that SJB is not worthy of a 2nd rounder? - Geauxgurt on 9/15/14 at 11:34 am|
It honestly goes to the arrogance of the coaches. They think they are miracle workers and it is pretty bad.
Hell, our 3rd CB is a safety in college, was graded as a safety and doesn't have the skill set or talent to be a legit corner, yet we stuck with him as our #3.
This is the problem with t...

You do realize the Saudis, Qataris, etc are the ones that funded these POS to begin with right? They, along with the US and other Western powers, are the reason ISIS even exists at the levels it does now.

PRob is pressing. He may not physically be all the way back, and it's clear the coaching he and the other DBs have been receiving is piss poor. ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Hawthorne's improved play - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 10:41 pm|
Over the first two games of this season, I know the DB play and DL play has been pretty atrocious, but one pleasant surprise has been the play from Hawthorne. Guy has been playing some real solid ball so far this season. Anyone else feel this way?...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Time to activate Baptiste and deactivate PRob - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 10:39 pm|
Problem is in the position coaching and the fact that White is just as bad as PRob.
I know people are frustrated with PRob, and he's been downright awful, but White is no better and seems just as bad.
A lot of it was hidden last year because we actually got a legitimate pass rush, but these ...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Has Byrd earned his paycheck? - Geauxgurt on 9/14/14 at 10:34 pm|
He's had some good plays here and there, and randomly came up with a ball somehow that was just ignored by the refs, but it hasn't been overwhelming.
Hard to say how much of it is him and how much is just the crappy play of his teammates....

It's clear whatever the Saints did this off-season didn't work at getting them ready to play on the road and that is at all levels from coaching to play calling, to play by the players.
I think it will be tough, and if we go by history, losing your first two makes it tough to just make the playof...

The Browns aren't that bad, and that is the major problem people are having. Their record last year was bad, but not nearly a good representation of the talent on the team....
