SI NFC South Preview

This was obviously written before they knew we were in the semifinal for best uniform ever.

That being said, I'm still on the 6-8 win bandwagon until Rivera and Shula prove they can coach on Sunday's. Our talent is good enough to win if put in position to do so.

That Week 11 loss against The Bucs hurt so much. We had that game in the basket, and then our offense went on vacation and our defense gassed. Words could not describe how pissed off I was after that game.

 

 

I was at that game with a group of friends.  It was such an unbelievable collapse I could only laugh.

Saying we could be in the thick of it in the toughest division in the nfl with a team that went 13-3 is a compliment.

Ouch. I couldn't imagine attending a collapse like that. It was painful enough to watch it at the bar with a bunch of Buc fans. What else could you do? I laughed too.

Everyones says the same damn thing- "Atlanta has the division but NO can challenge because they have Payton coming back". Doesn't everyone get sick of writing the same damn blabber?

We can ignore the fact that Atlanta's pass rush is bad and the defense as a whole is suspect. And we can ALSO ignore the fact that the Saints had the worst statistic season as a defense, ever. The Saints are getting a head coach back, sure, but they're switching they're switching their base defense as well and I don't think they have the pieces to do so.

I wouldn't be surprised if us and Tampa were 1 and 2 in the division next season, it isn't all that far fetched, yet EVERY writer takes the safe, pu**y route and goes with "Atlanta , then NO because of Payton yet if everything in the world goes right with the other two teams, they can compete." Grow some balls writers. Damn.

    I was at that game as well sitting in the endzone about 6 rows back.  There was a Falcons fan of which I believed to be a player's significant other.  Anyway, she was screaming the entire first quarter and was extremely annoying.  When we started spanking the Buc's ass, she shut up.  But then, the Panthers blow the game and she is right back at it more obnoxious than ever.  Man I really hate the walk of shame after a home loss. 

 

    As for our record this year, every time I look at the schedule, I see 10-6 written all over it.

Don't take it personally. It's all about winning. The Saints are closer removed from a winning season than us. Since they have most of the same pieces and their coach back, it makes sense to see how they can easily pull it together. We on the other hand have had most of the same pieces and still cannot manage a winning season. Until we prove that we can win games CONSISTENTLY and when it matters, no one is gonna take us serious.
