Not totally true. A couple of analysts that didn't have an axe to grind (Schlereth, Shaun O'Hara) did a pretty good job of showing why the Saints would win the game.
but how can you blame neon deon from an analytic perspective? prior to saturday's victory the saints were 0-5 on the road in playoff games as a franchise (popeyes chicken didnt work back then no pon intended), we just lost the last 3 road games of our season one of them to the RAMS!!!!, philly was the hot team going into the playoffs winning i believe their last 8 games in a row,
eventhough they squeeked by dallas it was a division game which are always tough to win and the saints lost a 2.5 game lead in the nfc south division to the carolina panthers (which everyone knows have squeeked by this year) to earn a wild card spot in which we had to go on the road where historically we stunk up the place to a very cold and hostile environment like philly, who would have picked the saints to win?
I believe the point was that even after the game, the discussion was why did Philly lose instead of how the Saints took it to them. Everything you said made sense pregame. But after the game, a game the Saints won, to continue to focus on Philly shows a marked bias.
who dats we're the only ones that had (a little) hope and rightfully so (WE'RE FANS!). now what i'm tee'd off about is now no one is acknowledging this fact, the saints have now won its 1st playoff game in franchise history!
Road playoff game. In fact most of the analysis that I've seen since the game starts with that fact.
that's a big deal i'm sick and tired of the so called experts down playing that! we went into the cold, played against one of the hottest teams in the playoffs on their home terf and beat them handily. now all i'm hearing is how the eagles isnt as good as the seahawks, the seahawks have a better defense a more mobile and accurate qb, the 12th man is gonna play a factor so once again the saints are underdogs and once again we gonna go out there and prove everyone wrong. i'm just wondering what the so call experts say next monday once we beat the seahawks 37-17! (and i'm not backing down off that score either) WHO DAT! !!
That score isn't out of the question. Everything with the Saints this season hinges on how well does the offense respond early. I was heartened by the team committing to the run. I believe that it'll help in the next game.
If Brees doesn't make too many mistakes, and the offense can get somewhat on track in the first half, then the Saints have a good chance of coming away with the win.
The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.
I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.
