Two terrible teams, both picked to win their division by many this offseason.One has suspensions looming over their players' heads and is already on its third-string head coach, possibly caused by a little-known curse, while the other is rebuilding under a new head coach and looks positively inept.The Saints at least have a reason.They didn't look this out of sync last season, despite a lockout, but they at least had player-run minicamps and the coaches were able to strategize while the players were locked out. This year, they are without their head coach, who designs the offense himself. That lack of extra wrinkles and halftime adjustments may be killing the Saints' offense, and the defense (with a new defensive coordinator, Steve Spagnuolo) certainly seems to miss the bounty era.Meanwhile, the Chiefs are whiffing in all three phases. Last week, they only looked sharp after Buffalo was ready to shut things down and go home.

  • THE CHIEFS JUST NEED TO STICK EVERYBODY ON DEFENSE FIRST AND SHUT THIER OPPONENT DOWN FIRST AND THEN JUST POUND THE BALL ON THE GROUND. IF U CANT RUN THE BALL U AINT GOING TO WIN NOTHING. (THE GIANTS LAST YEAR MIGHT HAVE BEEN LAST GOING INTO PLAYOFFS BUT THEY SURE PICKED IT UP IN THE PLAYOFFS.) THE OFFENSE NEEDS TO STOP PLAY ACTION FAKING ON 2ND AND 1 AND 3RD AND SHORT CAUSE THATS EXACTLY WHERE THERE TURNOVERS COME FROM AND LOSS OF YARDS COME FROM. WHEN THEY TRY TO DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN POUND THAT BALL DOWN THE MIDDLE THEY FALL APART. THEY NEED TO START THE PLAYERS THAT ARE GOING TO GIVE IT THIER ALL. ONES THAT HOLD OUT FOR MONEY ARENT TRUE PLAYERS THAT LOVE THE GAME. I KNOW HIGH SCHOOL KIDS THAT WILL PLAY WITH MORE HEART THAN MOST OF THE NFL PLAYERS TODAY. WHEN U START ASKING FOR MORE MONEY TO PLAY THAN U JUST RETIRE CAUSE YOUR HEART AINT IN IT NO MORE.
