    And yet, the last few years we've won 10 (plus a playoff game), 9, and 13 games. Seems like the approach we've had has been ok after all.

    I'd like to sign a couple of good players too, but the only absurd thing I see is in some of our reactions. The sky is not falling.

      The plan was to keep them from passing for 400. Mission accomplished!!!
      I was on the draft LVE train. I was for trading for Amari before it happened.

        Saints just signed Malcolm Brown to a 3/15 deal. I was thinking earlier today about Brown as an option. IMO he would have been a good 1 tech run stuffer at a good price.

            Covington I think is more of a 3 tech.

              I think he is better suited at the 1 tech.

                He's primarily a 1T.

                  Didn't he play DE in the 3-4?

                    Are you happy being crowned the "Wade Phillips Regular Season Champion", or do you wish to actually get thru the playoffs and win a SB?

                    Because they aren't winning a SB with this kind of Front Office spend-thrifty bullshit.

                      I agree with Geng. It's not the talent on the team that is the problem. It's the coaching. And until that mess is fixed, we can expect to be stuck in neutral. We can win games in the regular season on talent alone. But when the cream starts to rise in the playoffs, our head coach sours everything.

                        Nobody fights more to maintain the traditional high standards that this team used to have than me. My point is that our approach to free agency lately has yielded as good as or better results than the "throw money are Brandon Carr" type of approach. It's certainly not absurd to not want to give out the ridiculous contracts like Flowers, or Collins, or Jackson, or whomever got. I don't think that gets you closer to a championship.

                        A much bigger issue is the inability to get a deal done with Lawrence. Without Lawrence our pass rush would be among the worst in the league.

                          Yep. We have a few holes like every team (and I'd like to see a few free agent signings so that we can just let the draft come to us), but overall talent isn't what is holding this team back.

                            A lot of it is coaching...but even as much as I hate Red...I can't blame him for the team giving up 200+ yards to the Rams. Some playmakers at DT or along the DL and that doesn't happen.That's on the Jones fucktards.

                              Of course we could always use better players. Every team can. But the way people carry on over one f'n game is ridiculous. It was one game. Not an entire season. Over all, our defense was pretty good. Can it improve? Of course. But one bad outing isn't the end all, be all. Also, our seeming to not give a shit about the D tackle position, isn't on the 'Jones fucktards'. That shit is all Marinelli. So, like I said. Coaching.

                                I believe that run defense against the rams was on the coaches.
