How is it
 
That the play Jenkins makes in the Dallas game doesn't even make the top ten plays of the week on ESPN?

Look, I get the fact that we are not the media darlings everyone likes to talk about, and I like flying under the radar. But, C'mon, this is ridiculous. We are the Superbowl Champs. How can this play possibly be overlooked by everyone involved in putting that segment together?

Jenkins, you are the man, and I love you bro! It's really a shame, for our players' sake, that we don't get the credit our team deserves. It's effing BS.

73Saint 11-30-2010 06:45 PM

That's good to know, I voted for it there. Still doesn't change my point.

pherein 11-30-2010 06:57 PM

No idea, He missed his mark, ran down the receiver and stripped the ball. When does that ever happen?

B_Dub_Saint 11-30-2010 07:17 PM

Because the play happened on Thurs and they forgot about us. Screw it, we will just have to prove the naysayers wrong again this year.

st thomas 11-30-2010 07:29 PM

its the same reason you see every terrible team playing on sunday and monday nights instead of the world champions. they have already forgot but thats fine with me.

I agree, I didn't want the press for us, we don't need it to fill our egos, Jenkins made a great play and it deserved to be noticed.

But there were TWO plays from the Detroit, New England game, so you really can't make the Thursday argument.

Beastmode 11-30-2010 08:20 PM

If Dallas made that play you wouldn't hear the end of it. I will say that if he had returned it for a TD there is no way that is not the play of the year.

Saintswrath 11-30-2010 08:34 PM

It was "Dallas" thats why.. we were expected to beat Dallas so it's not a big deal even with the great plays but had Dallas beaten us it would be on every bulletin board, magazine, sports site, news ticker, radio show, Tv show, bottled water, milk carton, refrigerator magnet, Donuts box, Burger wrapping, X-box cover and probably painted on the side of the Cowboys stadium for weeks.

Yeah what else is new welcome to New Orleans. But what happened to our Super-Bowl buddies they sure did a slide.

skymike 12-01-2010 07:37 AM

ehhh... Everybody knows that Rankin Smith and that guy that owns ESPN, Mr. ABC, are good friends. Yeah, they got uh... an "arrangement." If you look closely, you can see em sitting together on tha bus where they bob their heads and go play outside with them underpriviledged kids. Yeah, they dont even recognize All Saints Day in New York. And if you get one of them big shaggy dogs, the just call it a "Bernard." Its ya basic common knowledge. Hey, who ya thinks gonna win Sunday?

Da Saints!

Because we are a small market team. The networks play up to their largest audiance. Dallas could be 0-10 and they would have a weekly special on them. I don't think it has anything to do with favortism.

skymike 12-01-2010 08:08 AM

Thats crazy. We're small market like Green Bay is small market, true, but we both inspire much passion across the country. And again, they fail to recognize the scope of Who Dat Nation. New Orleans proper might be a smaller NFL city, but Who Dat Nation blankets the Gulf Coast, several Southern states, and owns Houston!

I agree with all of that. I can't really explain Green bay but to say that it might have to do with a long running tradition as one of the leagues oldest teams? I don't think Green Bay will get as much attention now that Farve is gone. It's all about who is tuning in and will buy the Gatoraide after they play the commercial. They will get a larger audience in philly than N.O.

Hell even North Louisiana are Dallas fans. Our market "area" is still the southern coast and that isn't as populated as say the Dallas market area.

I was also figuring on watching the Saints/Cowboys game on NFL Replay. :bng::mad:
