There was no Lattimore, no Crawly, Kamara was a nobody, and they had Bradford. Experience counts. Brees has it, Keenum doesn’t.
We are a completely different team with an identity. If our receivers show up like they did today we win. They won’t shut down the run like Carolina either.
I really think they **** the bed against us.

Re: Saints get chance at redemption in playoff return to Minnesota

They beat us in our first ever play off appearance ('87) at home. Again in the metro dome after our first ever playoff win ('00) but we beat them at home ('09) for the conferences championship...

2 of my 3 top most heartbreaking losses and my second favorite win in franchise history. The Vikings too, have their claim to underdog destiny so don't think they won't be fighting - and the metro dome (if they still call it that) will be rocking - they are like 9 time losers at this and their 12th man will be up for the task.

Didn't Mel Gray, our all pro returner, fumble the opening kickoff? I remember he fumbled and it was downhill from there. That 87 team was shocked to just be in the playoffs. The second playoff game we played vs the Vikes, I remember Moss was unstoppable. He took a WR screen the distance and it looked like everyone but him was dragging a spare tire around. We've had some crucial meetings for sure. Round 4. Here we go. WhoDat!

The last 2 games alone in our Dome have been so loud, the noise in the Minn dome may not be that big of a factor for the Saints.

Find a way to stop that stud Theilen (sp), utilize Alvin in space & generate a consistent pass rush.

BTW, Cameron Jordan is my vote for Defensive Player of the Year. Dominating performance on Sunday in a playoff game.

Bring it.
