  1. It might have been believable if Kuharich were still GM or Ditka was head coach.
  2. The owners have approved a 17 game schedule starting next season. 3 preseason games, 17 regular season games. Only 1 bye week. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31166690/nfl-owners-approve-17-game-season-2021 The 17th game is a 5th non-conference game. This season, AFC teams will get a 9th home game. NFC teams get the extra home game next season. The extra game is against the team that finished in the same division position last year from the division teams played 2 years ago. So, the Saints won the NFC South last season, meaning we play the first play team from last season in the AFC division we played 2 seasons ago. We played the AFC South 2 seasons ago (2019), and the Titans won it in 2020, so our extra game is at Tennessee. There is also some stuff about international games, which I am not a fan of. I'm torn. On one hand, I love the idea of an extra game. But on the other, it is another opportunity to lose key players before the playoffs.
  3. This one will never get old.
  4. I think it will cost me any Saints game that is on Thursday night since NFL ticket doesn't carry the Thursday games. Unless I decide to get Amazon.
  5. I just saw an article on ESPN.com about the NFL's new TV deals. Most everything stays the same, but it reads that Amazon is now the exclusive home for Thursday night games with over the air availability on the markets of the competing teams. So hear is to the Saints not playing on Thursday nights for those of us outside of the New Orleans market. I pay for NFL ticket so I can see all my games. This BS will probably cost me at least 1 game next year. I'm pissed. I really hope I am reading it wrong. I do not have Amazon and I do not want to have to get it.
  6. Beat up the Clippers. Then beat up the Blazers for 3 1/2 quarters. 17 point lead with 6 minutes left. And they gave the game away. Ingram missed 2 free throws with around 10 seconds left that would have iced it. Then Lillard gets his 10384949489484th foul call of the game to finish off a 50 point game from the line. Blazers by 1. F!!!
  7. That was a fun game to watch. I can't believe they t'd him up on that. I don't know what he did wrong. He didn't stand over the guy. It's no more taunting than any other big dunk. But this one should get a poster.
  8. Thank you Drew Brees for 15 great years of football. You will be missed. Now I will join you in crying like a baby.
  9. I agree. I didn't expect much out of the team this year. Redick has regressed. I think father time has caught up with him. Ball, Bledsoe, and Hart can be good at times, and WTF at others. Zion and BI turn it over too much. I think Zion will improve though. He's very young. Only 1 college season and he missed part of that, and less than a full season in the NBA with very little practice time due to the current restrictions. And we have exciting young players in Lewis, Walker, and Hayes too.
  10. The only things this team is consistent about is poor defense and being frustrating as hell. They beat the Jazz one night, then lose to the Bulls. Who knows which team will show up.
  11. I think Wilson would be an awesome addition to the Saints. But I don't see how the Saints could do it. I'm sure the asking price is astronomical. I think Wilson is better than Stafford and the lines got a ton for Stafford. And then there are the cap issues the Saints have.
  12. Pelicans 120 Celtics 115 in OT. Largest comeback in franchise history. BI finished with 33, Zion with 28. Great defensive performance in the 4th and overtime. This team could be pretty good if they played like that all game. But that is a really big IF.
  13. And the Pelicans make a great comeback only to be F!!ed by the refs. Overturned an out of bounds to the Pelicans call to give it back to Boston with 14 seconds left. And they get the basket on a travel with 10.5 to take the lead. Then Zion gets the basket after the timeout to take a 1 point lead with 6.9 left and he makes the free throw for a 2 point lead. Damn it. Boston tied it with 0.2 to go. Looks like overtime. Pelicans came back from 24 down late in the 3rd.
  14. The refs just confirmed it. They are doing diddly-poo work today. They called 2 technicals on JJ Redick in about 10 seconds. 1 on a basket made my Zion. Then he got fouled on the next possession and he spun the ball back to the ref and they tossed him. He should gone up to the ref and told him to go F!! himself and gotten myself suspended. Ha. Needless to say, I don't agree with the call. I don't even know what the first T was for. We scored and he got the T.
  15. My goodness this time is awful. Watching the Celtics Pelicans game. 63-47 at halftime. Zion has only 4 points. He's not seeing the ball enough either. I don't think he is getting any calls. In fact, I think all the calls are going Boston's way. Ignoring the calls or lack of them, turnovers, turnovers, turnovers. And piss poor defense. Sounds like a broken record.
