RE: I hate the bye week

Bye weeks kills me too, but two games I'll try to watch, Falcons & Steelers game and the Panthers & Bengals game.

If the Falcons lose to Pittsburgh we're 3 games up on them and if the Panthers lose to the Bengals then we're 2 games up them and we didn't take the field...

You've given me reason to pull for the Steelers and the Bengals this week LTF.

I don't think the Falcons can beat the Steelers, Carolina on the other hand has a chance beating the Bengals because the Bengals offensive line is terrible right now.

Don't like this, need my Saints fix!!!!!!!

It does seem strange not having a Saints game to follow this week. The bye can be helpfull to give players chance to sort out any minor injuries etc. which is a good thing, but the bye also stops the momentum the team have been building over the previous weeks. I just hope the team can come back stronger than ever and give the Ravens a good thrashing!!

Geaux Saints.

RE: Re: RE: I hate the bye week

It somehow feels wrong to pull for your rivals’ opponent.

I try hard not to do it, but it would be disingenuous to say I don’t smile when Charlotte or the ATL loose or any other rival looses – or when teams outside our division that we beat win. - or any other scenario that might help the Saints.

But I try to do all “routingâ⠂¬? for the black and gold – even on bye week.

"It somehow feels wrong to pull for your rivals’ opponent. "

I look at our rivals as the enemy, I look at it this way, every time someone in our division loses the Saints gain , I NEVER pull for the Falcons, Panthers or the Bucs, NEVER..
A good friend of mine has been a Saints fan as long as I have, his son on the other hand is a huge Falcon fan, when we played the Falcons on that Monday night game his son wore his Vick jersey & Falcon cap, my friend told me that the Saint fans gave him a hard time, in good fun though, anyway some Saint fan told the young boy (12 years old) to bring his Vick jersey & Falcon cap back where he bought them and ask for his money back because he was cheated, poor kid, but kid said he didn't care what the Saints fans told him because he was going to continue to wear his jersey & camp, seems like there's a trouble maker in every family.
Gotta love going to the Dome on game day..

Rest In Peace JoeSam, thanks for everything my friend.
