|His momma called him AINT! Ima call him AINT!|
If we can understand that simple analogy then why is it so hard for people to except it when we bring up the New Orleans Saints? Let's keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The Saints without head coach Sean Payton is merely a shell of itself! Sure, they've got all of their offensive weapons back from a year ago including Drew Brees. However, the head coach is chillin' at the crib.
The Saints won't even make the playoffs this year bruh! Write it down, carve it in stone or tag it in the ghetto right along side of all of the gang affiliations. THE SAINTS WON'T MAKE THE PLAYOFFS! Not only is Payton out for the entire year the assistant head coach Joe Vitt, who is running training camp right now, will be suspended for the first 6 games and another cat will have to take over until he gets back. That's like the substitute teacher having a substitute bruh!
That means that the Saints will be down to the 3rd cat on the depth chart in terms of LEADERSHIP! You can holler they've got Drew Brees all day long pimpin' but he "AINT" the head coach. There is a reason that every team has one. If the head coach wasn't important they'd still have player coaches like they had back in the day and they sure wouldn't be paying them a king's ransom to stand around and look important.
Do you really think that the Patriots could have won those Super Bowls without Bellichick or the Giants without Coughlin? Do you really think that the Packers would be who they are as an organization without Lombardi? Do you really think that the Bulls or Lakers would have won all of those titles without Phil? Really? If the head coach isn't important why do people even have them? Why not just eliminate the position altogether?
So how disrespectful is it to the other 31 head coaches in the league to even suggest that the Saints will make the playoffs without a coach? I've heard boyz saying that they'll even make it to the Super Bowl. I just want to know how much of that stuff you smoked, injected, inhaled and drank before you came up with that? Not only are they missing Payton and soon to be Vitt but they've lost significant contributors on defense as a result of this whole Bounty Gate joint. Does Johnathon Vilma, Anthony Hargrove, Will Smith and Scott Fujita ring a bell bruh? Forgot all of them huh? Now I know that a couple of them aren't even on the team anymore but you can't just replace that production on the fly. It's not like they were scrubs carrying somebody's shoulder pads around. So how are they going to win without all of that on the field?
What are guys around the league saying behind closed doors when they hear this foolishness? They're on scholarship too! They're getting paid handsomely to go out an win ball games too and they have coaches. So they sure aren't trying to let the Saints show up and beat them without a head. The boyz in the NFC South especially aren't trying to get embarrassed by the not so long ago "AINTS." You know how cats grow up in the hood with a nickname like Flip or Slickhomie. Then go out and get educated, get a great job and you run into them later in life and they try to act like they ain't Slickhomie from around the way? Well... the Saints are still the Aints bruh no matter how you try to dress it up and put a ring on it. They're still the Aints from around the way!
Every team in the league has a certain amount of pride. For the Saints to show up and beat them would be like letting some cat from the suburbs show up in the ghetto and start taking boyz lunch money with a butter knife.
That's like trying to fly to the Super Bowl without a pilot. Everybody gets on the joint and sits down with their head phones on and the plane never takes off. Why, because there isn't anybody flying the joint. You can't just go get the 3rd man down and expect that he's gonna take you to the promise land. God only went down to the 2nd man on the depth chart when he chose Joshua to take over for Moses! Although he could have gone as far down the chart as he wanted to because he's the ultimate but stop with all of this Drew Brees foolishness. He's a player on the field. He's not the head coach. He can't play and see everything too.
Sure, the head coach isn't calling plays because under normal circumstances he has offensive and defensive coordinators to do that and the Saints still do. However, you've disturbed the head so everything else is shook. That's why there is an old proverb written by the O'Jays that says, "Your body's here with me but your mind is on the other side of town. You messing me around." Also the most famous joint of them all was written by an old wise man named Jim Mora! "What's that? Playoffs? Don't talk about- playoffs?! You kidding me?! Playoffs?! I just hope we can win a game!" The Aints will be singing both of those joints by mid season bruh!
Holla At Ya Boy!
