It is admirable for the Saints to stick together, and say the right thing. We win as a team, we lose as a team.

So, if they won`t say it, let me do the honors.

The Saints pass defense is horrendous, and the lack of production by the Saints in that area could implode a season of such high hopes.

The numbers don`t lie. In 2013, the Saints allowed 194.1 yards a game passing.

This season the Saints are dead last in the league, allowed 323.5 yards a game.

The Saints are not getting enough heat on the quarterback. And, they are blowing assignments, like the one that led to Cleveland`s game winning field goal Sunday.

In the past two games, the Saints needed one stop at the end of the game to win.

And, they failed twice.

And, what`s scary is how much the Saints have invested in their secondary, in free agent money and first round draft choices.

In the business of football, the Saints were looking for ROI: return on investment. And, that return simply isn`t there.
