Re: No respect from nfl gameday

The Pats are a national mindshare game. The media has elephatine memory. As two examples, they still talk about the Saints/Falcons reopening after Katrina. Also the last mindshare game was the 2007 opener against Indy. Remember how Jason David completely f'ed that up.

In the NFC the media will talk about that Kiln dude because he has a SB championship (1996!) and went to the NFC championship game a scant 2 years ago. Until they are knocked out, they will be the story no matter what the Saints do.

But a sound beating of the Pats, especially after Idny strugged with them a couple of week ago would go a long way to turning the tide.

It's funny. From a playoff standpoint it's the most unimportant game left on out schedule. But from a mindshare standpoint, it's the most important non playoff game we'll play this season.

Think of it as a mini SB. One of the best in the AFC. National game all to our lonesome. SB contenders late in the season. One with an undefeated record. Both teams with a lot on the line.

The Saints need to shine in this one to capture attention.

Don't worry. You'll be seeing all Saints/Pats all the time for the next week.

The Saints have three consecutive 10 win seasons and a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

The media is fixated on the AFC powers and Favre. Let them take the brunt of the spotlight, the Saints will lie in weeds like a swamp gator.

I like the national coverage. Indy gets covered even when they play nobodies. Farve gets covered when he goes to take a dump.

The Saints are not there yet. Shining in the National Spotlight and winning the SB will change that.

Well not exactly. The Saints for the last few weeks have been trotted out for the "Who is the best team in the NFC" argument. No real interest in who they are playing, just the fact that they are undefeated with the ViQueens nipping at their heels.

That changes this week, at least for a week. Beat the Pats and it may change permanently for the season was the wins continue to roll up.

I agree 100%. If we beat the Pats on MNF, everyone will be forced to drink the koolaid!

Re: No respect from nfl gameday

We're gaining respect each week with some good come from behind wins and finding a way to win each week. The Saints are 10-0 baby. Soon the Black and Gold led by Drew Brees will be all people can talk about.
