Way too much

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We are getting entirely too much love in the press. I sense that all this attention is distracting and causing a loss of focus. How do we stop this? Where’s the trash talk?...

I've heard a couple folks on TV say we can do it, but most say we can't.

Personally I'm not confident enough to call a win, their defense is for real, even if they did have a cake schedule, but I sure think we can hang 20+ on 'em, and that could be good enough.

Re: Way too much

IDK ... winning 8 straight games, arguably the best RB tandem in the history of the NFL, ELITE rookie play the entire season, Free Agents stepping up, possible unanimous rookie(s) of the year on OFFENSE AND DEFENSE.

Why wouldn't we get "love" from the press? This is a very good team.

The Saints are going to win. I have no doubt about it. It is a given.

15-5 Baby!

Re: Way too much

Gonna take a high caliber QB to defeat the Vikes D at this stage. Saw that last week, Panthers did about as best they could against Brees. He still made the throws. That's probably what the media is taking into account but I don't think any real Saints fan thinks it will be any easier.

I'm as real as you can get and I feel like it will be easier than the first meeting AND easier than facing Carolina.

Re: Way too much

Wear out the Vikings defense for 4 quarters. The Saints have a good O line. A Strength.

Griffin vs Armstead
Ramz vs Hunter

Playoff football is about dominating in the trenches. You win here, you take away their will. If this offense gets to the second level, Vikes will be back pedaling.

Footnote - the bye week could be a liability for MN. No one on the roster has significant playoff experience. Saints now have every player with a playoff win, a SB MVP and a Ambush Coach. Take advantage of "jitters" early, tee off on Keenum second half.

I like my chances with the Black and Gold. Let's go.

Re: Way too much

Their team is probably the most complete in the NFL at this moment. They have talent at every position.

That being said, their fans know that their team is good and aren't afraid to say we are going to lose, it would be fantastic if we shut their fans up.

Re: Way too much

Oh please we gots lots of love in 2009.

The thing is the Saints are a loveable team. There isn't much to hate and we don't find oursleves in BS drama situations.

Plus we are the only pro sports team with a Flower for a logo. I got laid at the Ravens stadium because I was a Saints fan at that game, LMAO.
