For the 47th straight year, there won't be a home team in the Super Bowl.

As long as the bird droppings dont make it!!!!


This is not exactly true; when San Francisco made the Super Bowl in January 1985, the game was played in Palo Alto on the Stanford campus. Close enough to be a home game, just not in the home stadium. Ditto the Rams in Pasadena in 1980. But the Saints losing for the eighth time this year means New Orleans will host the game this year and have a chip on its shoulder with the homeboys not playing.

As Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com said Sunday night, "The commissioner better have his Popemobile when he goes to the Super Bowl this year." He's right: New Orleans will be an unfriendly place, and that's putting it mildly, for commissioner Roger Goodell, with Saints fans certain he went too far in the punishment over the bounty scandal.

(In the next few days, we'll see if the supposed neutral appeals officer hearing the player appeals, ex-commissioner Paul Tagliabue, cuts the four players some slack.)

Anyway, I thought interim coach Joe Vitt said something prescient after the 52-27 mauling at the hands of the Giants Sunday: "When you're losing the way that were losing, you're a fragile football team. We've got a lot of guys who are used to winning and doing things the right way around here. But unfortunately, we don't have enough of them. All of a sudden something goes bad and its, oh, here we go again, instead of just setting your jaw and drawing a line in the sand and having some mental toughness to get it done."

The Saints have a lot of work to do, particularly on defense, to make sure they don't waste year 14 of the career of Drew Brees next season ... and to make sure they get Sean Payton back as coach.

He just got extra security! He's going to be walking around with his own damn army at the SB.

An army still can't stop the people of New Orleans letting goodell know what they think of him, he will leave the Super Bowl early

Maybe he will get the guy he replaced as commissioner to do his job for him........wait a minute.......whoa deja vu right there

Has he done that before? Lol

I just want to see a news story about him going somewhere publicly and being refused service ... a restaurant, a store, a gas station ... anywhere, anything, refuse to sell him a pack of gum, don't let him use the restroom ... just let him know he's nothing outside of his cozy little throne in New York. Bet.
