Scared?
 
I was just watching NFL Countdown on ESPN, why you ask, I don't know glutton for punishment I guess. Anyway, Keyshawn asked Berman if the Saints were scared because of all the things SP is and has been doing this week. Well I can see his point but I refuse to fall into that trap. Sean has never struck me as being scared, rattled, or nervous. I'm wondering is the practicing with loud noise, trying to set the fire sprinklers off at the practice facility, throwing wet footballs, painting the logo on the practice field, changing hotels in Seattle, etc. isn't a mind game to try and make the seahawks feel over confident thinking that we are scared. I wouldn't put it past him.

Seems more like trying to focus the players.

I see it as game prep.

Y'all bring up good points. I think that is all part of it too. It's just that there seems to be so much he is doing. When I heard he tried to get permission to set off the fire alarm in the building to set off the sprinklers I'm like man he's pulling out all the stops. But y'all are right our players need to be in the right frame of mind for this one.

I thinks its just good coaching! Makes sense to try and replicate, as much as is possible, what the game conditions, etc are going to be like!

Yea I agree but was just wondering if maybe he didn't say to himself, "you know this preperation could get into the heads of the hawks players, make them over confident." He wants to win this game bad. First we could'nt win on the road. Now we can't win in Seattle. I'm sure he's just as sick of hearing this as we are.

Choke, scared...... Once you have won a Super Bowl, neither applies.

Like Coach said - attention to detail - I like it!

"Its just trying to create that environment for your players that will be much like it is on game day and you try to think of a lot of different things in regards to your preparation and be really detailed and it really signifies the attention to detail weve got to pay this week."

These analysts man I'm telling you they come up with anything to justify their answers. Last week: Saints can't play on the road. Well you know how that went. This week: Saints can't play on the road. It has kind of fueled my fire, bring on the hate!
