The New Orleans Saints are stuck on a merry-go-round

NEW ORLEANS, LA - SEPTEMBER 17: Rex Burkhead /

The New Orleans Saints stunk up the place again to move to 0-2. Arguably, the next two games could change the direction of the organization forever.

Merry-go-round. One of the definitions listed is: “a never-ending cycle of activities or events.” This is where the Saints are. Above all, the ride doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Meanwhile, the money is being paid to ride again and again. Fans keep coming. A long waiting list awaits any newcomer to the New Orleans Saints carousel.

Although carousels are supposed to be enjoyable, this torturous circle of roundabout turns seems endless. Somehow, someway the Saints need to get off this rewind of Groundhog Day. The answers are getting stale from Sean Payton and Drew Brees. As a matter of fact, the ride into meaningless circles is becoming too commonplace.

There seems like something is missing. Every single compass was pointing towards a winning season until kickoff on September 11th. Even yesterday, the Dome turned silent at times. In fact, the game almost felt like a road game more than ever. The visiting crowd was overwhelmingly drowning out any chants of a Black and Gold clap.

In addition, the body language late in the game looked demoralizing. Of course, there are millions of stats, missed tackles, and mishaps that have plagued the Saints on the stat sheet. Anyone can see it. The numbers aren’t adding up. The offense isn’t even clicking as normal. Something is amiss.

Firing this person or the Water Boy isn’t going to change the roster though. The players are going to have to go out there and play regardless if it’s Sean Payton or Sean Connery. Be that as it may, no one seems to have the answers so far. Every press conference seems to mimic the one before. The merry-go-around has spun like a needle on a broken record. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again.

By and large, the biggest challenge at the moment is TIME. The Saints have two games on the road that are must wins. The term “must win” can sometimes can overused. However, this time around, an 0-3 start would mean about a 3% chance of making the playoffs.

Who Dat Nation is gonna have to ponder these thoughts for another week. The next stop is at Carolina.
