[quote]i don't really fault anyone. i feel bad for monty to an extent because i really do think he's going to be a good coach in the league but between shite teams and an unlucky injury history, he just has not been able to do anything. and yes, you're right, this team is not built for him.

I love hearing talking heads say we'd be a very good team with a new coach. I totally agree. I think one of the main problems is that Dell and Monty aren't on the same page. Dells moves don't make sense with Monty's coaching style. But I really like this team. I hope we hire a new coach this offseas...

I'm honestly all for tanking to get a top 5 pick. I hate to say that, but we aren't going to compete for a playoff spot. And the Jrue trade really could start to look bad if we get a 6-10 pick and have to forfeit it to Philly. We really should have gone lottery protected. ...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Rush D Re-visited - higgsBoson on 11/4/13 at 5:42 pm|
We definitely are better against the pass. You also have to remember that Rex knows Robs defense very well. In fact he's 6-0 against him. Also worthy of mention is that most teams feel like they have to pass on us to keep up with our offensive pace. We have to put pressure on the opposing team to pa...

It's really not a devastating loss in terms of a future this year. Everything is still in front of us, but it really does hurt my perception of this team. Our line was blown up on both sides of the ball. And it could definitely be a problem with this brutal stretch we have coming up. I don't want to...

Louisiana is more than just Baton Rouge. Our second best economic city is about as promising as Alabama's first. And as someone said, Houston and Dallas have huge connections to LSU.
