    Of course, I just don't see the grounds for saying this team will do worse this year than they did last. That's all. If you want to say they won't be that much improved, an argument could be made. I'd disagree, but an argument can be made. But to say that we're going to be worse? Ignorant. (that would be aimed at Peter King, not you)

    I can agree with that, I want them to improve myself, but the wool has been pulled over my eyes far too many times with the Saints. I hoping for a better year and a better run franchise.

    We still have Will Smith and Charles Grant. That's a downgrade every year they stay with the team.

    On paper the Saints look a lot better than last year. But I agree with MM, the Saints have under-performed way too many times for me to get too excited.

    The Saints should be a playoff team this year, but we all know shoulda, coulda, woulda...

    OTA's under way. From Mike Triplett, nola.com:

    I find these comments very encouraging. Williams is already making an impact on our team.

    Top 15 defense = playoffs.
    Top 10 defense = playoff wins.
    Top 5 = Super Bowl Baby. :hihi:

    Article about Pierre Thomas in today's paper. I still like him more than I do Reggie in the backfield, though

    Thomas, bigger, embraces challenge to run inside - AP - NOLA.com

    "The Saints ain't good enough. We're close, and close don't mean ****. I'm tired of coming close. I'm pissed off right now. You bet your ass I am. I'm sick of coulda, woulda, shoulda, coming close, if only".
