While the New Orleans Saints may be struggling on the field and now hold just a seven percent chance of making the playoffs, some longtime fans still believe the team can rebound.
“We just need a few things to bounce our way,” said Ronnie Munch as he circled some rope around his neck and set his fantasy lineups for the rest of the year.
“This team is loaded with so many game-changing players that can affect the outcome at any given moment that I can’t even begin to name them all.”
Eighty-seven-year-old Who Dat George Liberto, who has followed the team since 1967 and suffers from dementia, believes the key to a turnaround is having a short memory.
Said Liberto: “They have to forget about the losses and focus on the next game. They have smart players who I think will clean up the things they need to correct. I tell you what, though, that Gary Cuozzo is going to do some great things for this team. I’m excited to see what he and Fenerty can do together the more time they have to gel.”
According to a poll conducted by ESPN, 68% of all Saints fans believe the team can still make the playoffs if all the players of the other NFC South teams, the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, were to develop season-ending staph infections.
“Sometimes you just need a little luck on your side, and if history has taught us one thing it’s that saints are some of the luckiest people you’ll ever read about,” said Munch.
