Re: CONSPIRACY

So far, each of the hyped teams going into this weekend got smoked, except for the Colts, who didn't get much disrespect all things being equal.

Let'm continue to over hype Favre and the Vikes. Let's just ignore the predicted beat down their d-line is going to give the 2nd best o-line in the NFL for the run and the 4th for the pass. Let them talk up the Vikings o-line, which is rated 14th in pass protection and 20th! in run blocking.

At this point, you are what your record is and you are what your previous performance is. Objective analysis indicates that the Saints played against 10 games against the top 16 pass rushing d-lines and 9 games against the top 16 rushing defensive lines.

I'm sure that the Vikes will get pressure. The good ones did. The key is limiting those incursions and putting pressure on them to make plays on the back end. For the season, MN's defense was actually rated lower than the Saints. Even worse, they got to play the Lions twice, the Bears twice, Seattle, Rams and SF, as well as the Browns. Half their schedule was against teams in such disarray making it to the stadium to get beat was the highlight of their day.

Prepare, study, watch, identify, anticipate and react. I'm modestly optimistic that we're only being totally dissed instead of casually insulted by the media.

But they also could want a Colts/Saints SB as well for the obvious connections. I do think we will get the wrong end of at least a couple calls against the Vikings however. It is something we will just have to overcome on the way to the SB.

Awesome, Vikes fans think the same thing. There isnt much difference between in a Saints and a Vikings fan- our team has just failed more times on bigger stages. Secretly, I think both fan bases are waiting for the kick to the teeth but someone HAS to win and it shouldnt come down to a bad call anyways. If it does, the loser probably wont have deserved it anyway.

(Just so you know, I'm pretty sure the Saints only played 4 playoff teams in a weaker division than the North.)

So who all is in on this conspiracy? A couple of refs? Mike Pereira? Roger Goodell?

My wife used to work for a VP in the NFL in New York. Believe me, there are no conspiracies that the league is involved with.

Re: CONSPIRACY

If there was a conspiracy going on the Pats would still be in the playoffs.

Re: CONSPIRACY

My point is that there are obvious cases where the league has shown preference to certain teams and players and the Saints have never been one of them while Favre has. From terrible calls to "home" games overseas, the list of ways the league has wronged us goes on and on. I'm not going to throw out names in a sweeping net attempt to accuse anyone. But just because your wife is not aware of any bias doesn't mean it isn't there. I'm not surprised the perpetrators, whoever they are, did not share it with her. I have seen too many examples of it happen. You can believe it is bad luck or human error. I believe dollars has more to do with it. It is like the Jordan rules in basketball or the steroid era in baseball. When star players and teams win games and put up big stats it attracts more fans, and that is what they are hoping for. It doesn't take a big secretive agenda to realize the league sells more tickets, sells more merchandise, and sells more TV time to sponsors when certain teams and players win.

Re: CONSPIRACY

Obvious cases???

You can't say that unless you list them?

The league hasn't wrong the Saints?

This is not a question, but I did list two cases earlier with the Steeler’s SB wins. If you have watched as much football as you claim then I am sure you can think of a few more yourself. Your comment about the Pats indicates you think the league favors them, hence proving my point.

Not sure what you are saying with this grammar.

I personally think that the Patriots only made it to the Superbowl in the 2001/2002 season because of extra help from refs. After 9-11, they became the favorites and they had to win as a sort of Patriotic symbol.
