Angry WTF?

Greetings! I am joining everyone here - because I am sitting in front of 10,000 channels from my "dish" and the famous NFL channel is talking about Mike Vick - Brett Farve - John Kitna - Let's see.... Buffalo... oh they're good... Bengals? T.O. say's, "We're terrible." They are... who else? Ok... now Cleveland. Jags. Hmmm... Bottom of the hour. No Saints. Who won the most recent Superbowl? Who beat the Steelers ("the best team in football") a few weeks ago? Did the Saints win today? I don't understand why the Saints are not in the conversation.

Ok... whoa. Prime just mentioned Drew Brees. one hour and five minutes later. 4 td passes 382 yards. Ok.

Let them fly under the radar. No problem.

Quite frankly most of those talking heads on the boob tube babble incessantly and never say a word.

I'd suggest the mute button and listen to some music.

I understand Sinner your feelings there. We all have had this
discussed before and I agree with KingCutta.
To see Saints news, you have to go to WWL online and the TP paper online.
Less national coverage is better.
Look at the Super Bowl 2010 team,Dallas Cowboys. Oh wait, guess that will not be happening, but the media hype picked DC over and over and still last week as being in 2010 SB.
It is better for your team here to get less to no national coverage. Play to win and win and then, as Emeril says, "BAM!"

Welcome aboard Sinner.

The old adage of "if it bleeds, it leads" has now found a home in sports coverage. Sportcenter focuses their energy on those kinds of stories almost exclusively now.

But by this time, the Saints aren't sneaking up on anyone. They just need to play to their potential and we'll all have the last laugh.

I was watching NFLN last night. They finally got to the Saints. One guy says we're talking about everyone else but the Saints. The other one says good point. Then they talked about somebody else. So I stayed up till midnight for a 20 second Saints recap.

Keep up the good work. You douchebags. Should have gone to bed after the local news.

I heard the comment made this weekend that if New Orleans beats Dallas we will be back in the discussions... for what ever it is worth.

As long as I get to hear our incredibly articulate, intelligent, and always elegantly dressed linebacker/defensive captain discuss the inner details of the game on Final Play, I could care less about what the national media talking heads think of the Saints. I don't even listen to drunken Bobby Hebert anymore after the games! But seeing Vilma in a well-cut suit in front of the camera, discussing the day's big plays, is pretty much all I need to make my Sunday complete after a big win.
