Beware the double digit home dog
 
I am now officially anxious. I don't care how much you might think the seahags suck, they are still an NFL team. They DO have talent and they don't usually beat themselves at home. I have seen the 2010 saints just not show up or mail it in after getting a lead. They have yet to stomp on the neck of any opponent. How likely it that they will learn how to do it today?

I'm not on the ledge, but the saints have not done well as the favorite, and this is uncharted territory for a favorite.

This game scraes the crap out of me.

I've watched the Saints lose these kinds of games my entire life.

These aren't my Dad's 'Aints, but it sure is hard to block out the memories of all the times we've snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

If we played Seattle 10 times, we'd win 9 of them. It's that 1 out of 10 that scares me to freakin' death.

Relax. Easy win.

I was sitting at my desk yesterday at work thinking and worrying about the game today. All of a sudden I had this feeling come over me, the same feeling I had before the Superbowl last year. I'm not worried in the least. I'm not saying that today's game is a sure win, but I am more relaxed about it. I think we'll be fine.

I posted the same thing in Facebook. Seattle is STILL on NFL team, and no I haven't lost faith...but holy smokes we're hurting...everywhere. We more or less did what we wanted to the last time we played these guys, but they rang up a LOT of yardage on our defense, and now we're without Jenkins, Clark, and Hargrove (did we lost anybody else while I was sleeping?).

We can still win. Certainly we 'should' win. I think we will win, but those feeling anxious - I can relate.

We have to score early and then the seahawks will fold. Beside snow is in the forcast and it should come by halftime. So theres another reason to score early.

And often!
Don't sit on a score. Run the score up if you can. 100-3 is ok wit me!

I think we win, but only a fool would bet that we cover that spread.

Hopefully we will, but something tells me we don't.

Well they can be famous for two different reasons. :mrgreen:
