Sloppy Saints? C'mon, Folks! It's Pre-Season!

So, the defending world champion Saints played their first pre-season game of the coming football season on the road against the always formidable New England Patriots and lost 27-24. So what do the Times-Picayune sports reporters have to say about the game? Saints Are Sloppy!. I even read in the print edition this morning that the performance of the Saints was "disturbing."

My reaction: IT'S THE FRIGGIN' PRE-SEASON, FOLKS! Sloppiness rules the roost during pre-season. For every team. And there's nothing disturbing at all about it. It's expected.

I've never understood why anyone gets so invested in a pre-season game. The only folks who ever play with any kind of intensity during pre-season are those who are vying for roster positions. The starters play as if it's just another practice. Which it really is.

Suffice it to say that I HATE pre-season football coverage and analysis.
