How Screwed Are The Saints?

The month of March has not been kind to the Who Datters. It began with the reports that general manager Mikey Loomis was soft-pedaling the talents of his elite franchise quarterback and then proceeded to get exponentially worse with the fulmination of GregggggggGggggate. If only matters smoothed over, we’d assume that the team might be able to outlast this catastrophe, but, alas, such is not the case. We’ve on the verge on a full-on meltdown. In just the last 24 hours, there’s been a report that Drew Brees is “livid” about getting the franchise tag instead of a long-term deal. Former Saints lineman and fan base favorite Kyle Turley came forward to say that Brees probably deserves to be suspended if he had any knowledge of the bounties. And the team is working out Randy Moss, which isn’t necessarily a terrible thing on its own, unless the intention is for him to replace Marques Colston and/or Robert Meachem, both of whom could leave in free agency.

As you can see, the Saints are plenty screwed. But they could be more screwed. Who knows? Tiny Darren could be forever misplaced between couch cushions. Jimmy Graham may slip loose of the Earth’s gravitational pull by trying to dunk a football over the International Space Station. Tracy Porter could fracture everything actually attempting a tackle. What will put them over the top? We wait with bated breath.
