Levon wears his war wound like a crown
He calls his child Jesus
`Cause he likes the name
And he sends him to the finest school in town
ohhhhhhhhhh!
hahaha... yeah... thats a really confusing song, btw. well maybe that's the "jesus" that elton john was talking about last week when he made those blasphemous comments.

You know its funny, I like Steve Young now. He's a super nice guy, I think, and well spoken. But I have this video of a Saints/Niners game from the 90's and there's this one play where he gets his bell rung, goes back to the huddle, then takes a knee realizing he cant function--- and I go crazy everytime I watch that. (in the tape, you can hear the crowd cheering, once they realize he's hurt) awful, isnt it?

Re: New Arch Rivals?

You got to remember these were the same fans that cheered when Wade Wilson got hurt so that doesn't surprise me that they would cheer when Young was hurt since they would cheer one of their own limping off the field

Close. Atlanta's first Division title was in 1980 with a 12-4 record and 14 seasons in the league. Their second wasn't until 1998, after another 18 seasons. On that average the Falcons are due again 2020.

Would you believe??? old guys help me out here, correct me if im wrong... would you believe we had a DIFFERENT guy, also named Wilson around '85? Dave Wilson. He was our "starter" for lack of a better word. And he SUUUUUUCKED! And he got hurt in a game... And we---cheered! myself included. (Im sorry... I was young)

It might have had something to do with the fact that his backup was Bobby Hebert.

Re: New Arch Rivals?

Oh my dad chewed my arse out for cheering when Wade got hurt that night. He was like how could you cheer for one of our own getting hurt, I was like he stinks and they need someone else out there (the backup was just as bad or worse)

Re: New Arch Rivals?

in 28 years, the only non-kicker Saints player i've ever boo'ed was Dave Wilson.

Yep. I remember Dave Wilson. Played 8 years for the Saints, from around 81-82 to about '88 (I looked him up recently). I don't think Dave ever actually got a decent chance to be the starter or he would have been better. There were a string of quarterbacks who kept relegating him to a backup. Kenny Stabler, Richard Todd, Bobby Hebert, John Fourcade...

Re: New Arch Rivals?

I say Cowpies for this reason... Falcons will always be your biggest rivalry since they're in the same division and with the history of the Saints/Falcons rivalry BUT unless the Falcons become Super Bowl contenders, you guys have bigger fish to fry!
