14th Saint on IR for season

6 posts in this topic

We had a season with 15, if I recall correctly.

(I forget when, 2004 maybe?)

Falcons had seasons like that in 05 as well. No excuses. Good teams overcome it.

That can be true, but I don't put as much stock in it as others.

When you look at the teams that make playoffsand/or the Super Bowl, you'll find in the majority of cases the teams that are the healthiest tend to be the ones that hang around over teams with arguably more talent, better coaching, etc.

No, it's not an excuse, but to utterly discount the effect of injuries is ludicrous.

I do agree but the Saints weren't doing anything special before these guys went on IR was my main point.

I don't know...I mean when we had that problem in '04 what was once a Super Bowl team was turned into a shell...if not for some fantastic play by Delhomme and Muhammed having his best season ever, (and Nick Goings of course) then we'd've probably gone like 1-15. We went 7-9 anyway. :rolleyes5:

    • And yes, Smitty would've been absolutely hell on wheels in MMA.
    • Smitty would've tried to have literally killed Talib for that poo he pulled on Philly in the SB.
    • SSDs are mostly good if you need fast read or write speeds, eg watching or editing large files like raw audio or video.  They won't help much for standard stuff, and are one of the larger premium price points.  They are very nice in that they produce less heat and are more stable, no spinning discs, but you won't notice much of a performance gain for general use. The biggest bang for your buck is RAM.  I always get as much RAM as I can afford.  That will improve performance of everything on the system.  Upgrade CPU/cores next, for overall performance. Again, depending on what you're doing, the graphics card can make as big a difference as anything else.  That's mostly for gaming and video playing/editing, however.  But with more and more video streaming going on, the graphics card can be very helpful to improve performance and quality.
