Saints Rant

Well, Here we are, Monday morning, and both the Saints and Eagles, two teams I thought would win this week, did not. 

Being an Eagles fan, I can only say that I know exactly what your going through Saints fans.  Your team has been without their stars all year long, and now it seems as if every time they get a player back, another one bites the dust.  This team has serious problems.  The defense could not stop the Falcons, who don't look now but are fighting for a playoff spot.  Now the Saint's will be without Mike McKenzie for the remainder of the season.

Looking ahead it is not going to be an easy road for my preseason superbowl prediction to take place.  I had the Saints beating the Chargers in the Super Bowl.  This is not looking very likely considering the Saints just got spanked by the Falcons, and the Chargers could barely handle the Chiefs AT HOME!!!!! 

What is going on in the NFL this year?  You have the NFC dominating the AFC and you have teams looking more and more likely to finish 10-6 or even 11-5 and not make the playoffs.  (insert Jim Mora sound byte here).

I guess the best thing you can do as a Saints fan is hope that your team gets it together. You have your Quarterback who is probably the MVP of the league fighting with a tight end that should have never been signed.  So at this point I suggest to you, just take it one game at a time and hope things work out in your favor, because your going to need A LOT of help. 

The Saints play the Kansas City Chiefs next week and if there is one thing I learned about this team, is that they are no easy win.  The Saints will likely struggle to beat the Chiefs next week but I do believe they will find a way to do so.  If they don't the season is over.  Next week's game against KC is a MUST WIN to say the least.  Reggie Bush says that he will be back.  So for the love of god coach, PLEASE UTILIZE REGGIE BUSH. 

PLEASE!, do not be like Andy Reid and get the ball to your best player only 13 times a game. Make sure you get Reggie Bush involved early and often. Get creative!! your season is on the line, now is not the time to be apprehensive about attempting to win the game. (Insert Herm Edwards sound byte)
