New Orleans Saints: 5 things to help fans get over a bad year

1 of 6

The New Orleans Saints have depreciated beyond recognition, and there is no reversing the miserable play we’ve seen in 2015.  It’s time for fans across the Who Dat Nation to think positive, or at least try to.

The New Orleans Saints are bad.  And when I mean bad, I mean they’re riding a four-game losing streak, sitting dead last in the NFC South at 4-8, and playing like the worst team in the NFL at the moment.

Between poor free agent acquisitions, questionable coaching decisions, protection issues across the offensive line, little depth at just about every position, and a historically bad defense (again), all hope is lost for the 2015 season.

It’s a shame to have all these problems when your most prized possession, Drew Brees, is on the back end of his career but still playing at an unimaginable level for a 36 going on 37-year-old quarterback.  Time is of the essence for another shot at a world title before No. 9 hangs up his hat, but the Saints just can’t get it right.

As depleted New Orleans and its afflicted defense continue to be one of the laughingstocks of the league, it’s time for Saints fans look at some things than can help make this living nightmare a little more bearable.
