Faithless in New Orleans?

When the offense has an off night, the debacle in Denver is what happens. Although this Saints defense has been historically bad, there was reason for optimism leading up to this past Sunday, after 3 consecutive weeks of holding opponents to 7 points in the 2nd half.

That indicates half time adjustments to put pressure on the quarterback. That indicates an understanding that what isn’t working in the first half will not work in the second half. We did not see that in Denver. 17 first half points, and 17 second half points.

There is no doubt that this qualifies as the worst loss of the year. Even after the Kansas City game you could clearly see what went wrong. There were specific things to point at and say, “If we fix this and this, that won’t happen again.”

Not so much after this game. There is a sense of faithlessness underlying the chance of winning games going forward. Hopelessness and faithlessness are not synonymous, and I hold out hope that this was just an aberration.

Bring on the Eagles and let’s get this taste out of our mouths.

Who Dat, y’all.

    Peyton Manning was doing things that I think the New Orleans Saints group leaders should be doing that is having group meeting. Tell the players what you want from them if the leader of offensive group don’t when you know the players messing up then the players think it’s alright. Everytime the offensive group of Denver comes off the field Peyton Manning is right there with the offensive group planning on they next play are talking about the problems he are having from his offensive group. This is keeping his players motivated same with their defensive group with their leaders. New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees need to do the samething, Drew Brees this is why you are the offensive leader DO YOUR JOB that is keeping your group motivated done set on bench with your head hung down get with your group let them know of your likes and don’t likes. The same with the defensive group leader get with your group tell them what you want of them, tell them about likes and don’t likes this is called motivation. The coaches can’t do everything they not playing the game, they not on the field. The coaches teaches the players the system but it’s up to the players to learn it and the players must want to learn. In football communications is very important team leaders keep your group motivated.
