Saints @ Cowboys Recap: Saints Look Ridiculous in 38-17 Rout By Cowboys

New, comments

For a team that could have moved into a tie for first place in their division, the Saints looked uninspired and sluggish to start this game. What happened to the pride and integrity of this team to where they would play that poorly on Sunday Night Football? What a letdown not only for Saints fans but any football fan who was expecting a somewhat competitive primetime matchup! Has Sean Payton lost his influence on this team? Is Payton himself just burned out to where doesn't care as much as he once did? Did their time at the Greenbrier make this Saints team soft? Whatever the reasons, this group of men formerly known as a "team" totally imploded in Dallas. At 1-3, this team is exactly what their record says they are.
