Unfortunately, the Saints were unable to duplicate the success of that season under the remainder of Haslett's tenure. The Haslett-era Saints were marred by inconsistency and mediocrity, and were known for being considered playoff contenders early in the season only to collapse later in the season and miss the playoffs. After losing their final four games in the 2001 season to finish 7-9, the Saints started strong the following season with a 9-4 record, only to lose their final three games (all to teams with losing records) to miss the playoffs in 2002. Winning just one of those games would have secured them a playoff spot. Conversely, in 2004, the Saints started off poorly, struggling to a 4-8 start, before coming alive late in the season to win their last four games. However, it was not enough to earn them a spot in the playoffs. The Saints did not return to the playoffs during Haslett's tenure.


Haslett was often criticized for his loyalty to Saints quarterback Aaron Brooks. During the 2002 season, Haslett chose to stick with Brooks instead of starting backup quarterback Jake Delhomme, even though Brooks had a hurt shoulder. Brooks' erratic play and poor decision-making was considered a major reason for their late-season collapse that year. The following year, Delhomme became the starting quarterback for the division-rival Carolina Panthers and led them to the Super Bowl, while Brooks led the Saints to a disappointing 8-8 season, further rubbing salt in the wounds of Saints fans.

In 2005, Haslett's sixth year with the Saints, the team stumbled to a 3-13 record after Hurricane Katrina forced the team to temporarily relocate their operations to San Antonio and play three of their home games there (in the Alamodome), four in Baton Rouge at LSU's Tiger Stadium, and one at Giants Stadium in New Jersey against the New York Giants.
