Where do they get some of the stuff they write about the Saints?
 
The New Orleans Saints are bullies.

They’re not the “stuff you in a locker, rough you up a bit, give you a wedgie in the locker room” kind of bullies we knew and feared in high school. They’re the “embarrass you in front of the entire class, talk down to you when you’re at your most vulnerable, and gloat about it afterwards” kind of bullies that were even worse.

To the great delight of fantasy football owners, Vegas bettors (New Orleans is 13-4 overall and 9-0 at home against the spread this season) and lovers of endless fireworks shows everywhere, the Saints have blown out opponents, used the deep pass when up 20 points in the fourth quarter and have kept the pedal on the medal all season — regardless of the score — with no apologies or regret.

In short, they’ve thrown conventional football “etiquette” out the window, and because it’s just so damn fun to watch, they’ve gotten away with it with very little resistance.

“Don’t like it? Then, stop it,” seems to be their motto.

And in a 2011 season that saw the NFL single-season record for 20-point comebacks broken by October, you can’t really blame them. No lead is a safe lead in today’s NFL, and the Saints — as 1990’s Steve Spurrier as it may seem — have no shame in punishing their opponents through the air for the full 60 minutes, regardless of the story on the scoreboard.

The 2011 San Francisco 49ers are the Saints’ foils.

Coach Jim Harbaugh’s team is more suited for the league’s leather-helmet era than the one they’re playing in today. Despite rules greatly favoring the passing game and big scoring, San Francisco won 13 games by going back to football’s most basic strategies: controlling the line of scrimmage, owning the time of possession game, dominating in special teams and defense and limiting turnovers on offense.

The Lions had the #5 offense in the league and even they didn't out play Drew

Such a stupid article. If Detroit wanted the Saints to call off the dogs, then they should not have stacked the line of scrimmage and sent pressure packages. As it was, the Saints killed the last two minutes at Detroit's 2 yard line. It would have been easy to put up 7 more points if running up the score was their intention.

Nothing would be finer than a 40-burger on the 49Whiners...

Happened to the Cowboys back in there day, Green Bay when Farve was in his prime, and more recently its happened to the Patriots. When you have an elite teams and teams can't beat you on the field they start hating you for what you have done. Same goes for the media and the fans of other teams. Consider it an honor guys to be a hated team. It means we are winning, and will continue to win.

There is a lot of crap, written by jerk-offs, about sports.

1. (New Orleans is 13-4 overall and 9-0 at home against the spread this season)
2. kept the pedal on the medal all season

Those two glaring mistakes kept me from giving the author any credibility whatsoever. We're 14-3 overall and its "pedal to the metal"!!!
