re: Basketball: NCAA Tournament prospects - Swsb44 on 1/17/16 at 6:53 pm
It will be the NIT this and maybe the best we can hope for the next several years. We will be inconsistent for the rest of the season. We are certainly not on an upward trajectory. Vanderbilt and certainly Kentucky are nowhere the teams we thought they would be, but good wins. Got some national att...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: Peter King claims Sean Payton is on the hotseat - Swsb44 on 7/6/15 at 12:25 am
Exactly! Peter King said nothing about a "hot seat". Payton is just waiting a "respectable" number of seasons after the suspension (and Benson's loyalty) to leave New Orleans. Unless the Saints go to the Superbowl and they probably won't even make the playoffs - Payton will leave on his own and wi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: I ain't scared check in thread - Swsb44 on 12/19/14 at 10:40 am
The Saints are in at 8-8. We had a couple of embarrassing losses, but so very, very close losses to good teams. Saints aren’t near as good as we thought they would be this year, but they’re not near as bad as people seem to make them out to be. We get two easy victories in the next two weeks; fin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Thanks, I think this is a big factor. We're not great, but we're not that bad and when you see us at the bottom of the Division it makes me sick. But, the Divsion and Conference - Wow, how can an even better than average (not saying we are) have much hope. However, a string of wins sure would fee...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

In this thread there have been about 2 or 3 relevant responses.

I’ve dismissed (to a point) the last two seasons because of the team’s youth and primarily ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

A few reasons for hope - Ryan has been in bad situations the past few years (Cleveland & injury problems at Dallas). I assume that Payton wants the Saints to win next year more than anyone in the universe and he picked Ryan. We had the worse defense in the history of the NFL last year, a suspe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I think the best we will do next year is 8-3.

For three years we said that JJ would improve and it never happened. What we saw with Mett last y...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
