    The Saints losses

    Was hurricane Katrina just an excuse for the Saints terrible performance last year?

    There are 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    I think that the Saints were very unlucky last year, and were in a lot of very close games. They were better then the record indicated

    katrina was definitely a part of what happened last year...but they just weren't that good of a team to begin with and they also had some key injuries as well.

    The Saints probably weren't going to the play-offs anyway, but they did have a lot more off the field distractions. The oddsmakers give a 3 point advantage for homefield; if you give them just that and add it to the point totals of their home games, Atlanta and Chicago go into overtime and they beat Detroit.

    New Orleans wasnt a terrible team. Katrina was just destructive. A lot of the players live in New Orleans and they had to deal with the hurricane destroying their homes. Then they had to go play football. Despite all of the distractions though, the only game I can think of where they were blown out was the Packers game.
    The Roman and The Prince. Playmakers until the end.

    a la Duece Mcallister. This guy is a real warrior (and not to mention he wears #28). He was pretty much their Tiki Barber. Aaron Brooks really had a Brett Farve type year.

    Off-the-field issues can really affect performance, and they played 16 road games. You can say it is a "home" game, but they weren't home.

    They did have a few questionable calls that cost them some games. (Pull and shoot when NO was defending the FG. He missed but nailed it on the 2nd try from the penalty. Interception by Mike Furrey).
