So, last year in the down time between the OTAs and training camp, I did a "Future HIstory of the Saints 2007" Obviously it was WAY off (we went 12-4 and won the SB), but I thought it was fun for everyone.

Future History of the Saints 2007 **SuperBowl** - SaintsReport Community Forums

That link has links to the whole season. I think the best one besides the SB was this one:

Future History of the Saints 2007 **WEEK 17** - SaintsReport Community Forums

I was just curious if you guys thought it was worth doing a "Future History of the Saints 2008?" It was a lot of work. A LOT of work. The first time I did it, I didn't realize how much time and effort it would take and kind of fell into it. This time I think I have a plan on how to get started and I think it will go faster.

I would love to do it again, but it's really only worth it if you guys really wanted me to do it again. I'm not looking for accolades, I'm looking for a real opinion on whether I should put the time in to do it again.

I will not be hurt if I hear "It wasn't that big a deal man, let it go" I will also be excited to do it again for you guys if you want me to.

If I do it, I need to start working on it right after the draft in order to have it ready for you guys after the OTAs.

With only 18 votes, I think that answers my question. :) :) I will have more free time between OTAs and Training Camp now!

It is a lot of work and last time I did the full season planned ahead instead of each game one by one. I could create each game one by one and see how it turns out... That would be quicker than doing it the way I did it last time. I don't know if the storyline would come out as smooth, but it would probably be fun for all of us. It would take me longer to reveal each week than every few days like I did last time. It took me WEEKS to do the whole season last time.

I would say just do that... do a game at a time. I think the lack of interest last year sort of stemmed from the fact that there was no anticipation for each game because you posted them so close together...

I feel bad asking you to go through all of that for my enjoyment, but I would definitely read them again if you were to do it. Although I voted to do them, it's up to you as to how you spend your time.

Never thought of that. Maybe if I post them on specific days so that people know they are coming, it might help.

I have NO problem putting in the time and effort if people truly are interested in seeing them. It just seemed... minimal last time is all. :)

I tried guys. I just don't have the time right now to really get it done. I worked on it the other weekend and didn't get far enough. Last time I had a long time to prep for the unveiling and a lot of time to work on it. This time, work, church, girl all have me busy. If I had more time or less pull on my time, I might have gotten it done...

Sorry guys... It'll be a long month waiting for training camp. I'll remember this thread next year and see if I can start working on it as soon as the draft is done...
