Saints Reacts Results: Is the team headed in the right direction

Saints’ fans confidence destroyed after the loss to the Falcons last Sunday.

Earlier this week, we posted our weekly confidence poll to see how fans were feeling about the New Orleans Saints (5-6) after Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons (5-6) and times are tough in the Who Dat Nation. Only 2% of voters said that they feel that the team is headed in the right direction, and it is easy to understand why they feel like they do. This season started with so many expectations that have not come to fruition. We not only lost to our division rivals last week, but they now take over 1st place in the division. We also went into last week's game relatively healthy, but several players went out after suffering various injuries.

This week will be even tougher for the Saints as they have to face a pretty good Detroit Lions (8-3) team that is looking to bounce back big after a loss on Thanksgiving to the Green Bay Packers (5-6)

Let’s hope the Saints can find a way to get back on track with a win and get those numbers trending back up.
