  1. You can rationalize this loss all you want. Bottom line is this game was taken away with that non-call and no one will convince me otherwise. I never thought I'd see the day that I would turn my back on the NFL, but that day has come. What hurts the most is knowing the blood, sweat and tears those players and coaches put into this season only to have it ripped away. I know how crappy if feels as a fan, I can't imagine how they must feel. I will always be a fan of the New Orleans Saints and the Whodatzone and I'm sure I will lurk here from time to time, but the NFL is no longer worth my time, energy or $$.
  2. Saints' Super Bowl takeover in Atlanta would extend to Falcons facility, locker room: report
  3. I'm all for going after them in the run game as well. They are undersized, so we should have the advantage. Suh and Donald might prove problematic when trying to get to the 2nd level, however.
  4. I expect a heavy dose of Kamara this game. I think Payton will try to get the ball out quickly and get him isolated one on one with the Rams linebackers. This will enable them to attack their weakness, while at the same time mitigating the pass rush from Suh and Donald. I expect the Rams to focus a lot of their attention on Thomas, so Ginn and Co. need to step up. And as always, they need to RUN THE BALL to keep the Rams Offense on the sideline and open up the play action.
  5. Home-field is usually good for 3 pts. So basically its a pick-em game.
  6. Fwiw, neither team gave up a sack in the first game. After divisional weekend this is the vibe from the talking heads that seems to be out there for each team.... Kansas City Chiefs: They have a defense now to go with their mvp quarterback. Look out. New England Patriots: Everyone left them for dead and forgot how dominant they are. Los Angeles Rams: Resurgent running game and defense is much improved. New Orleans Saints: Most vulnerable team left. O-line sucks. Offense out of sync. It was nothing the Saints did, Philly made too many mistakes.
  7. linkage Foles underthrew the ball a little, opening a door that the Saints would moonwalk through. From there, Lattimore said, the game “changed tremendously”, and he wasn’t kidding. Consider the before and after: Pre-pick Eagles 20 plays, 169 yards Saints 10 plays, 21 yards Eagles 14, Saints 0 Post-pick Eagles 27 plays, 81 yards Saints 61 plays 399 yards Saints 20, Eagles 0
  8. I wear my "black-n-gold colored glasses" proudly when I say, I hope this team wins the Super Bowl this year. Because it seems the individual awards aren't really in the cards this year. Obviously, the guys on the other teams that are getting the recognition, are very talent players in their own right. But if this team, with this record, was in New York, LA , Dallas or Chicago the narrative would be vastly different.
  9. That is correct.
  10. The regular season ends with a resounding thud. Lookin' at Seahawks, Cowboys or Eagles. Seahawks struggled to beat Arizona, Cowboys gave up 35 to the Giants and the Eagles may be down to QB#3. The Bears D is down right scary. That being said, time for a 3 game win streak. Sunday, Jan. 13 NFC No. 4/5/6 at New Orleans Saints, 4:40 p.m. (FOX)
  11. Need to establish the run game. Behind a makeshift O-line Teddy may be under pressure a bit more than usual.
  12. linkage It's Teddy time in New Orleans. With the New Orleans Saints already locking up home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will start over Drew Brees in Sunday's regular-season finaleagainst the Carolina Panthers, coach Sean Payton said. LATEST ANALYSIS ▶ Game picks: Colts beat Titans ▶ Vikings' plan to stop Mack ▶ Mariota among those with most at stake ▶ Previewing offseason QB market ▶ MJD: Ranking top 5 rushing tandems ▶ Coach candidates: Names to know ▶ Five rookies who landed in best spots ▶ Power Rankings: Bears up to No. 2 ▶ Nine guys who need change of scenery Brees hinted at the move earlier this week when he told reporters he expected Bridgewater to see significant playing time against the Panthers. After suffering a devastating knee injury before the 2016 season, Bridgewater has attempted just three passes in two years. The 26-year-old isn't worried about the long break from meaningful action. "I never turned it off," Bridgewater said Wednesday, per Nick Underhill of The Advocate. "Being in the position that I'm in you always have to stay ready. That's been my mindset since I arrived here. Approach each day with the same mindset that your opportunity can come within a blink of an eye." Bridgewater has appeared in four games for the Saints since being acquired in a trade with the New York Jets in August. He has only attempted one pass in a Saints uniform, but Sunday's start will give him a chance to show what he can accomplish in a regular-season game. With Bridgewater set to hit free agency this offseason, his start against the Panthers could draw plenty of attention from QB-hungry general managers. He put in a few very strong performances for the Jetsduring the preseason and there's a chance that a strong game on Sunday could lead to a potential starting job somewhere else in the league.
  13. Couple the mid-season Saints offense with the late season Saints defense and you have what you seek. If that happens come playoff time. Game over.
