At least there's no pressure to win now...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Sports media has pretty much declared Seattle as repeating. Only that stubborn old Tony Dungy seemed to step out on a limb and say they wouldn't. Now our boys can just go out and have fun roasting some Falcons. Since ...

At least there's no pressure to win now...

Sports media has pretty much declared Seattle as repeating. Only that stubborn old Tony Dungy seemed to step out on a limb and say they wouldn't.

Now our boys can just go out and have fun roasting some Falcons. Since we've been declared "also rans", there's no pressure!

I'm not buying... It's only the first game, not like we're trying to keep up with them yet. Division comes first...

They are definitely the front runner and favorite even in my eyes. They are the team to beat. Its a long season and we are a better team than we were last year. If anyone can knock them out of the playoffs we can.

The talking heads are stupid. I feel like I'm listening to a broken record. Every year, they seem to be all over the defending champs nuts, throwing words around like "repeat"...NEVER HAPPENS!

They are impressive and no denying 17-1 at home. Wilson though running around is a huge liability.

What the media says won't dictate how the Saints play against the Falcons. There's pressure to win every week.

You're crazy if you think Wilsons legs are a liability. It disrupts coverage , extends his time to find a receiver ( Coverage Won't Last Forever ) It's a huge asset.

Oh and to the notion that theres no pressure to win now and all we need to do is capture the division ? That's the same logic that will put us back In seattle come January. It's fact we need to keep pace if not outrun the Hawks in route to a home field advantage.

So as a team are they worrying about Seattle already? Or the upcoming division games?

Thinking to far ahead is putting pressure on yourself; unneeded pressure...

Seems pretty logical to me since every athlete says the same exact thing: "One game at a time"

Re: At least there's no pressure to win now...

Manning looked terrible in the Super Bowl
Rodgers looked bad last night, got rattled and didn't even look, less throw to Sherman's side of the field (really?)
Kaepernicke was rattled there
Brees looked bad the first game but came into his own when the elements cooperated in the playoff game

they can sometimes collapse a pocket with 3

we have a better o-line

I like our chances
Seattle or the dome

lets fly under the radar

Re: At least there's no pressure to win now...

From last year and from what I've seen this year, Seattle is in a league of their own. We're the best of the rest until proven otherwise. Their front seven is amazing.
