0-2: Gotta be a Rope-a-Dope...Right? Right?

Ugh. You knew that the Colts were probably going to beat the Saints in Week One. It's pretty much written in the United States Constitution that Peyton Manning win every game he ever plays in and also must star in every NFL commercial ever. I don't mind Peyton. In fact, I find him to be quite humorous. And, there's that whole 6'5", 245 lb quarterback with the laser, rocket arm thing he's got going. He's good...no, he's great. We get it. But, after the dismantling the Saints took two Thursdays ago, you really didn't expect a team of Sean Payton's to just bend over and spread 'em like they did yesterday againts the Buccaneers.

How stupid is the secondary in New Orleans? The Bucaneers threw to only one receiver...his name is Joey Galloway. Don't the coaches know that Galloway absolutely shreds this defense every time they play Tampa Bay? Hell, they might trot out another receiver just for semantics, sure. But, throw to another receiver than Galloway? Uheard of. From now on, I want to see five defenders all over Joey Galloway until the Bucs prove that they can do something else to beat us.

Next on my shit list is Jeff Garcia. Just when I thought we had burried this shitkicker for good in last year's playoff game against the Eagles, he resurrects himself from the dead and is now the new Joe Montana? Kiss my ass, you Sloth look-alike.

And finally...what the hell happened to this offense? I'll tell you what happened. We can't stop the pressure from getting to Drew Brees. Although he is fairly good at avoiding sacks by getting rid of the ball, pressure leads itself to many inaccurate passes and on rare occasions, interceptions. Not good for the whole "winning" idea. Our receivers can't catch this year, and our running backs can't hold on to the ball. It was just a terrible game all around.

The Saints are in last in the NFC South. However, with the three other teams at 1-1, that only puts the Saints a single game out of first with 14 games left on the year. Next up is Tennessee on Monday night. Let's hope to Jeebus almighty that this ship gets turned around...and quick.

You're starting to lose me, kid.

bocaj said...

In a Nutsack said...

This site is MUCH worse than dick cancer... Believe me, Tom Green told me that it was like Disney Land compared to here.

Well dub, you'll be happy to know that the boys on ESPN last night said that the Saints were the most likely 0-2 team to make the playoffs. Can't wait till Monday night!

ESPN also things USC is the best college team in the country. Fools.

whatever the freaking problem is with your saints, can you please get them to fix it? now?

brees is on my fantasy team, and i keep starting him in front of young and mcnabb.

In a Nutsack said...

Well, WV, we're hoping it gets turned around in a 180 kind of way this Monday night.

It's basically the same team as last year's, and right now they're not playing like the 2006 club. We'll see...hopefully it'll happen, but you can keep Brees starting. He gets a man defense in Tennessee, and he'll likely pick them apart.

bocaj said...

Ya, the Saints will do a complete 360 and turn around the season! Should I start Reggie, Swammy?

bocaj said...

I need an answer within 12 hours...

In a Nutsack said...

Boc, go ahead and start every Saint you have.

To late...
