The biggest thing I noticed out there was, a huge lack of energy. Imo, these guys have been on the road for so long they might've been a little tired and ready to get some home cooking. Let see how different they are gonna look now that they are home. Not ready to wave the white towel

Well, it's only the 2nd preseason game, so keep the faith.

I agree with this and actually told my wife while watching the game. They looked lethargic. Tired, uninterested, what ever it may be. I think they are longing for home. We will see next week at home. Being away from your family that long can mess with your mind a bit. Just 2 cents worth.

You need to watch that abysmal effort by our offensive line again tonight on TiVo and then come back and tell everyone to relax.

There are real, unnerving concerns about our O-line that were brought to the forefront tonight. Speaking on those concerns =/= waving the white flag.

Saints have historically had awful games after breaking camp when they've trained out of town. I'm not sure that was the reason tonight though.

True true. But if the o-line isn't going to step up more than what we have seen in two games, Brees will be an ink spot on the carpet. I am curious to know what the coaches saw in ota's that made them think this o-line was cohesive. 2 games, not seeing it.

Everyone knows the O-Line has issues, but I don't believe they will be this bad. Today they took bad to a whole new level. By week 1 IMO, they'll be much better. Relax.

Again, these are concerns we had last season that have spilled over into this season. Real issues.

I suppose we will come back mid season and you will admit this is actually a big issue. The health of our future HOF QB depends on how well the big men up front protect him. Right now, whether you like it or not, the question marks are there.

I was more concerned about getting gassed by the heat and humidity. I'm trusting that this team will get their legs under them so to speak and come out of the gate with guns a blazing.

They have demonstrated that lack of effort for a few years now and frequently at home during the regular season. That is directly attributable to the coaching staff. The team shirt should read, no excuses.
