As long as Drew and the Saints don 't shoot themselves in the foot and dig a RIDONKULOUS 14 or 17 POINT HOLE for themselves, in the first ten minutes of the game, with a Football Follies-esque assortment of fumbles, pick 6's, onside kicks, botched kick returns, bobbled drops, 3-and-outs, personal fouls out of bounds and other ABSURD assorted nonsense, before they even get a first down....as long the first quarter is anything resembling NORMAL sensible football, instead of a total Saints meltdown, the Saints have every chance of winning this game EASILY. Even possibly running away with it.



But if the TV cuts back from a commercial to start the second quarter and they're down 14 or 17 to nothing again, and you see Morstead lining up to punt after another 3 and out, then I think we can all pretty safely reach for the whiskey and start looking to next year ....



Look at what happens in SO MANY of the famous heartbreaker road losses under Sean Payton, over the years: Seattle this year, Rams this year, SF '11, Ravens '10, even Chicago NFCCG in '06? In all those disappointing games, things got crazy and out of control VERY early in the game, first quarter. Everything goes nuts -- Saints get punched in the mouth, the plan goes out the window, they get in a huge ridiculous deep hole, and the Saints try but can't come back from it. Key to this game IMHO, is to AVOID that. To win in Carolina they need to control the first quarter and do everything they can think of that is, uh, NOT THAT.

Your neglecting to remember all te famous comebacks as well. Miami, Washington, Houston, just to name a few.

nothing any of us say matters however.

not one of us would qualify as a player or coach.

drink your beer, get fat on your couch, and enjoy watching men do things you never could.
That would make for a pretty boring message board, wouldn't it?

Webster's is a great place, while you are there look up "huge".

Here is my favorite from Merriam-Webster's:
Main Entry: drama queen
Function: noun
Date: 1979
: a person given to often excessively emotional performances or reactions.

Here is Merriam-Websters definition of insanity:
Main Entry: inĚsanĚiĚty
Pronunciation: \in-ˈsa-nə-tē\
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural inĚsanĚiĚties
Date: 1590

3 b: something utterly foolish or unreasonable.

Sounds like repeating the same action and expecting a different out come to me.

I just want to see us actually run the ball when it makes sense. I absolutely hate when it's 3rd and 1 and we bomb it deep. And we do this numerous times a game. Just give Pierre the damn ball and move the chains.
