Saints outdoors
 
Looking at the Saints schedule, 6 of the 8 road games will be outdoors: Bucs, Panthers, Giants, Packers, Broncos, Raiders; the other 2 games are Falcons & Cowboys.

Last year the Saints were 5-3 on the road; should have been a perfect season for the Saints, but it is what it is.

I, like most other Saints fans, was sick and tired of hearing/reading about how the Saints don't score as much when they play outside.

It may be over-simplistic, but why score 35 points if 17 will win?

Most of the teams we face outdoors have pretty good defenses, I don't mind when the talking heads say we don't play well outdoors it just more incintive to shut them up. Our backyard or theirs we usually win or it's a tight game, so let them talk.

As long as we have one more point than who we are playing, it's all good. I'll take 2-0 or 3-2 in an ugly win, as long as it's a win.

It would be incredibly unrealistic to even demand that a pass-heavy team should score as many points outside than they do inside... why would that even be a discussion?

Thats just the game. We play indoors an other teams play outdoors. The Saints half to play both.

Most people think we don't play well outdoors. Other coaches probably think so too. We know better. The elements do limit us but not that much. Coach Payton knows how to adjust to the conditions.
Besides if everything works out we'll be playing our final game in the Superdome and that means winning the Superbowl.

Coach payton learned a lot from the 2006 NFCCG in Chicago, road games in troublesome weather have always been played better since that day

The chicken-shyt Bears re-sodded the middle of the field before that game and knew that the only places to have any success running was to the outside so they concentrated their defense there.
