I listen to a lot of talk radio while I'm driving. Mainly I tune into ESPN radio or something sports related hoping to catch bits and pieces of something to write about. Well, today I heard Colin Cowherd refer to the Saints as dysfunctional (by the way I'm spelling it with a "y" for a reason).
I don't want to start slinging mud because someone at some point felt like Colin deserved to have his own radio show. I agree with some things he says, but I don't think I would use the word dysfunctional to describe the Saints. Personally I think the team is more functional than any other team in the NFL.
Several other teams are similar, but even teams like the Patriots or the Packers would be a lot worse off if they had to face the same issues the Saints faced this offseason.
Join me after the jump to see how funtional the franchise was, is, and will continue to be.First let's have a short vocabulary lesson to begin. Today we are examining the definition of the word "disfunctional." According to dictionary.com, the origin of "disfuntional" stems from the word "dysfunctional." Here is their defintion of "dysfunction"...
