This sums up New Orleans Football
Favre threw three touchdown passes despite playing without four offensive starters and losing running back Najeh Davenport to a season-ending ankle injury in the second quarter of Green Bay's 52-3 rout of the New Orleans Saints.

After going three-and-out and giving up a field goal, Green Bay (1-4) scored 52 unanswered points.

"When you have a lot of pent-up frustration, you can kind of explode like that," kicker Ryan Longwell said after Green Bay's most lopsided win since Oct. 23, 1966, when it routed Atlanta 56-3.


"That's the first time I've ever played in a game where we scored 50 points," Favre said. "Who would have guessed it? We're 0-4, struggling, more guys hurt and even lose guys during the course of the game. But I've played long enough to know that if you do things the right way, if you study, prepare and believe, things will go your way."


The Saints (2-3) couldn't stop a depleted Packers offense that was missing starting center Mike Flanagan, Pro Bowlers Javon Walker, Ahman Green and Bubba Franks (for all but one snap) and also had both tackles playing on gimpy left legs.

It wasn't the type of homecoming Mike McKenzie anticipated a year after forcing a trade from the Packers.

"They were excellent in every phase of the game," said McKenzie, who saw no evidence of over-the-hill from the team he cited in wanting his walking papers.

"The only thing I can see is 52-3," McKenzie said. "The Packers are looking quite good."

The continuing mistakes of this team. I still believe it is 80% of coaching failures as to why our team is this way. Farves' qoute is why our players have NO HEART.
