Sad Day For Saints Fans


To say I was a little disheartened at today's decision regarding the New Orleans Saints would have been an understatement. Now that it's had a chance to soak in a bit, I think it best to take it as is and move on.

There is one thing left to be done. Get Drew Brees under contract ... NOW. The organization, the players, and the fans need someone to rally around. Drew is the guy. It's right in his wheelhouse, too. Just do it.

Those writing off the Saints chances to contend for a Super Bowl next season in the SuperDome are seriously underestimating them. There are quite a few of them including Don Banks and John Clayton. The offense will be fine next season and the defense will go as far as the new defensive coordinator takes them. This team has a lot of talent and the commissioner just placed a fairly large chip on their shoulder. That combination can do some wondrous things. What kind of reception will Roger Goodell get in New Orleans when he comes here for next year's Super Bowl, I wonder? Wouldn't bother me a bit if he had to present that Lombardi to someone with a Fleur-De-Lis.

Quote of the Day

Can't see nothin' in front of me
Can't see nothin' coming up behind
I make my way through this darkness
I can't feel nothing but this chain that binds me
Bruce Springsteen, The Rising

Quote from said blog: "We recognize our fans’ concerns and we regret the uncertainty this episode has created for them. We are humbled by the support our organization has received from our fans today in the wake of this announcement, and we ask them to continue to stand with us, as they have done in the past, when both our team and our city have overcome greater adversities"


It's a big blow to lose Payton, but it's too early to write off the season. I think you're right about signing Brees so people can rally around him and then people should give Benson some time to come up with a plan.
