Forecast: Without Sean Payton, Saints turned into road kill

4

As the 2012 Saints season enters the final two weeks, it's become clear the Saints miss Sean Payton the most when they are on the road. Going into 2012 the question everyone kept asking was, "Where will the Saints miss Sean Payton the most?" It’s a hard question to answer using statistics or facts, but I’m going to try to at least use one.

Forecast: Besides Goodell, what killed 2012 Saints season?

+

Once the Seahawks Russell Wilson threw an overtime touchdown in Chicago, the New Orleans Saints 2012 playoff dreams for all practical purposes died, so what besides Roger Goodell killed them?

Forecast: 2011 Saints offense rides to the rescue

I would like to thank the 2011 New Orleans Saints offense for time traveling into the future and saving the 2012 New Orleans Saints season. Do you have a better explanation about what happened Sunday in Tampa?

Forecast: Magnificent Brees effort wasted

2

We are about three more of these kind of losses from an angry Joe Vitt arriving at his post game press conference wearing nothing but a stained t-shirt and having a cigarette in one hand and a scotch in the other. He’ll be angry, belligerent and end the press conference with tears in his eyes sobbing, "Dam right we miss Sean! I miss him. Come home Sean we need you." Then Drew Brees will come to the podium and hug Vitt, look directly into the camera and say, "ARE YOU HAPPY NOW ROGER? YOU DID THIS. ARE. YOU. HAPPY. NOW?" If you saw an emotional Aaron Kromer in the post game after another knife to the belly loss, you know I’m only half kidding.

Forecast: Why is the Saints defense so awful?

1

Who or what is to blame for the Saints defensive disaster? Could it be Steve Spagnuolo and his new plan? I mean we all grew tired of the Gregg Williams strategy of taking kerosene, matches, fireworks, a blitzing Roman Harper then hoping for the best, but maybe old Gregg had it right; the Saints defense is so devoid of talent or ability to run a complicated scheme let’s just set the house on fire to keep warm in the winter and hope for the best. Whatever happens it will burn real pretty. Arson as a defensive philosophy has holes of course (see Smith, Alex) but as much as it pains me to say it I think I’d prefer the Gregg Williams defense to the 2012 Saints. At least Gregg Williams defense was interesting and whatever was going to happen usually did so very quickly.

Forecast: What can we expect rest of 2012? PAIN

5

There is only one question worth asking about the 2012 New Orleans Saints, How big and how bright is the fire, which is their season, going to burn? The Saints coughed up a 24-6 third quarter lead in such a slow painful way if you argue they are anything other than a four win team you are just lying to yourself to block out the pain. That’s ok, I get it because I was using adult beverages almost the entire second half to survive Sunday. As Drew Brees said after the game, "Third and fourth quarters were pretty abysmal." Yeah, pretty much Drew. I think you’ll be using that word abysmal a lot this year.

Forecast: Fear the replacement referees

11

Players don’t respect them and the Rams/Redskins seemed THIS CLOSE to having a messy, full-on brawl. I can easily see a scenario where replacement refs lose control of a game completely, make a couple horrendous late calls, players and coaches go crazy along with fans and suddenly we have a sports riot any European soccer fan would be proud of. It would be horrible but I’ll admit if it happens and makes Tim Tebow cry, Roger Goodell look horrible, and nobody is seriously injured I’m all for it. Also the Saints ARE IN BIG TROUBLE Sunday against the Chiefs.

Forecast: Will the Payton-less Saints be inconsistent all year?

26

After having a few days to digest the Saints awful opening week loss, I wonder if the biggest thing the Saints will lose without Sean Payton is their consistency. Watching an inconsistent football team takes years off your life. If you don’t believe me, just close your eyes and travel back in time to the Jim Haslett era. The Saints could go to St. Louis and make a wild comeback on the Super Bowl Kurt Warner Rams and then go to Arizona and have 45-year-old Emmitt Smith run for 125 yards and two scores.

Forecast: Saints opener a big, hot mess

6

The Saints as some people in the South like to say, "A big hot mess." Penalties, turnovers, and confusion were the key ingredients in a 40-32 beat down. The most concerning thing about Sunday's game and the thing which should worry you the most is the secondary. Right now it's a fatal flaw. I'm not talking a keep-you-out-of-the-Super Bowl flaw, I'm talking keep you from the playoffs and will make you mediocre flaw. The Saints were without Jabari Greer and lost Johnny Patrick and proceeded to get burned to the ground.

Forecast: 2012 will be all or nothing for the Saints

21

The 2012 Saints are Evel Knievel trying to jump his motorcycle over 50 school buses. It’s either the coolest thing you’ll ever see or complete disaster. Plus The Sean Payton sabbatical spot of the week. I love you football, I love You

Forecast:: Saints and Patriots succeed in boring us to death

15

If even good preseason football is awful what is awful preseason football? Indescribably horrible. Sometimes I think exhibition football is like losing your virginity; you are really excited for it to start but after it’s over you wonder why it wasn’t more fun. After watching the Saints and Patriots finish a 7-6 three plus hour pillow fight there are a couple of things I’m sure of…

Forecast: Savory Simon of Hubigs Pies should coach the Saints while Vitt is suspended

6

Four Words: Savory Simon Hubigs Pies. The Saints have decided to go over the top and slightly ridiculous route with a giant Sean Payton billboard in the training facility so why not do the same to begin the year on the sideline? It’s okay to admit the Sean Payton ‘Do your job’ billboard is both frightening in a Big-Brother-is-watching-you sort of way and hilarious in a did-the-Saints-really-make-a-giant-billboard/shrine-of-their-suspended-coach-that-would-make-dictators-in-foreign-countries-proud sort of way. Now I know you’ve heard all the usual suspects of Pete Carmichael, Steve Spagnuolo, or Aaron Kromer. So boring. Let’s try and think outside the box people. Why can’t the Saints have a different guy every week or why does the coach even need to be a person? Why discriminate against inanimate objects or food?

Forecast: History says losing coach not fatal to Saints season

10

Do you worry not having Sean Payton on the sideline is a death blow to the 2012 Saints? Two words: Barry Switzer. Still need convincing, Larry Coker won his first 24 games as coach of the Miami Hurricanes and you'll never guess where he is coaching now.

Forecast: Ready for longest off season ever?

3

You know how after the Saints won the Super Bowl following the 2009 season the offseason seemed to last 10 minutes? We partied, watched Tracy Porter's interception 5000 times, partied some more, and then the 2010 season started. The 2011 offseason is going to be the exact opposite. Watching the Packers get trounced by the Giants was the cherry on top of the rancid sundae of a loss to the 49ers. Welcome to the longest off season we've had in Saintsville in a long time. And the most important since Sean Payton and Drew Brees cane to town in 2006.

Forecast: Gregg Williams was right to blitz at end of game

103

After watching the most heartbreaking loss in Saints history, media and fans have done a fantastic job of tossing a Molotov cocktail made of anger and hypocrisy at Gregg Williams as he heads out the door to St. Louis.

Forecast: Why Saints/49ers might be like Bama/LSU

8

This game will at times remind you of LSU/Alabama in that I believe for stretches the 49ers like Alabama will dominate the game but not the scoreboard. The difference between LSU and the Saints is Brees.

Forecast: Normal rules don't apply to Saints offense

3

The only thing that would have made the night better is if the LSU band would have started playing ‘Hey Fightin Tiger’ when the clock hit zero to get everyone ready for Monday. In an NFL where the rules make everything about offense the Saints have managed to take theirs to another level. Normal football strategy doesn’t apply to them.

Forecast: Decision to rebuild Superdome helped lead to this wonderful weekend

6

History will show whether or not to rebuild the Superdome was one of the most important decisions in the history of New Orleans.

Forecast: How much did you savor the 2011 Saints?

2

It was the best offense in Saints history, and every week I’d remind myself, "This is not routine. Jimmy Graham isn’t supposed to look like he is playing against children. Drew Brees is 9-9 on third down and how is that possible? Has Thomas Morstead even punted this month?"

Forecast: Difference between the 2009 and 2011 Saints

30

How can we compare the 2011 New Orleans Saints with version from two years ago that won a Super Bowl? How similar are they? How are they different?

Forecast: Why the Saints going undefeated at home is so special

11

It might not seem a big deal to any of you who are under 25 and read this column but to those of us old enough to remember the 1980’s the thought of the Saints going 8-0 in the Superdome gives us the same feeling as being told a unicorn won the third race at the Fairgrounds. We’ll believe it when we see it but just knowing that it might be possible is fantastic.

Forecast: Brees has gone from great to ridiculous

10

Drew Brees has since the debacle in St. Louis put together maybe his best stretch of games. He’s thrown 19 touchdowns, one interception, and thrown for about 2000 yards. The frightening thing is he looks more athletic and mobile in the pocket than I’ve ever seen him. Brees seems to be avoiding sacks and throwing on the move BETTER.
