Re: Your WORST "I Can't Believe It" moment with the Saints...

There's been a lot of bad moment but off the list l'm going with the Lynch run for couple of reasons. I'm not cooker so I invited all my boys over to my new house to watch the game. I've been amped all week talking s&$t and look what happen. I forget about the food it burns, second I get so mad I'm ripping planks of the fence in the back yard, third after the game I get drunk to easy the pain and I hit on my new next door neighbor and last after my gets on my ass the next day its raining and I have to go out in the rain and fix the fence.

Re: Your WORST "I Can't Believe It" moment with the Saints...

I was able to break down these options other than "Other" pretty easily.

1. Losing the last three games in 2002 hurt pretty bad, but it was then that I realized that Haslett was a complete moron by playing a hurt Aaron Brooks instead of a healthy Jake Delhomme.

2. I was three years old for the 21-point halftime letdown against the Raiders.

3. I wasn't even born for the Falcons blowout in Tulane Stadium.

4. I wasn't surprised about anything our defense DIDN'T DO against the Seahawks in the 2010 playoff game. They were horrendous all day long.

5. In 1983, I was seven years old and still a Steelers' fan, so I was unaware of anything the Saints were doing that year or anything outside of my Star Wars action figures.

6. Aaron Brooks made some many bonehead plays that nothing ever shocked me about the guy.

I was able to narrow this down to the Alex Smith TD run and Carney's missed extra point. While watching the Saints give up a run like that to the Bernie Kosar-esque Alex Smith was about as painful as having bamboo shoots jammed under your fingernails, it was just edged out by the most bi-polar moment in Saints' fans history when Carney botched the extra point. I guarantee every single Saints fan went from pure elation to absolutely rage faster than a Ferrari can go 0 to 60. It would take something MONSTROUSLY stupid for anything to replace that for me.

More like Sixty to ZERO! After that Graham TD, you just KNEW the Saints had the game in the bag.

But as you mentioned, our defense made Alex Smith look "All-World" that game!

I had to edit my original post to clarify that I chose the Carney play (or non-play, I should say) over the Alex Smith TD.

I picked the Marshawn Lynch run. We has a great opportunity for a Two-Dat that year, and we literally let it slip through our hands on that one stupid play. Instead, that jack-ass Aaron Rodgers led the Packers to the Superbowl. I was angy for weeks. Hell, I'm still angry about that play.

Re: Your WORST "I Can't Believe It" moment with the Saints...

I don't see it. We had no running game. The defense had been on the field for about eighty percent of the past six - seven games. Of course a running back, any running back was going to bust one loose sooner or later. The defense was gassed. I was really surprised that we'd made it that far that year. Now that %^*#^%@!!! run by Smith? The ONLY excuse for that was GW's unbelievably bad play calling. Smith walks backwards for a 28 yard touchdown while the entire Saints' defense is running toward the opposite side of the field on their 97th all out blitz of the game. And that was AFTER GW puts Shanle back alone in long distance coverage for a touchdown pass or two. I'm hoping Smith shared his playoff payoff for that game with Williams, he earned it. Damn, I need a Superbowl win to wash the taste of that play out of my mouth!

Re: Your WORST "I Can't Believe It" moment with the Saints...

I was in high school for the MNF loss to the Raiders. I had a bet on the game with a friend of mine, even called him up at halftime to gloat. What a total disappointment that was. My memory might be wrong but I think Muncie fumbled 3 times in the 2nd half, deep in our own territory and thats what gave them the chance to comeback and beat us. If we had won that game we would have been in the playoffs for the first time.

Re: Your WORST "I Can't Believe It" moment with the Saints...

With the history the Saints have we are full of I can't believe it moments. I was pretty much expect anything and nothing surprises me anymore. The score by Smith and the run by Lynch were sucky, but definitely not one of the biggest oh **** moments. Must be a lot of younguns voting. For me it was the river city relay. That was so amazing, but somehow I know when we lined up to kick the extra point we would miss it. God Im still pissed off about that.

They all suck, but I have hurt less from personal tragedies than I did for the River City Relay. It gets my vote.
