Is The Curse back?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I meant the OP in the other thread, in terms of why I posted about that. This thread was a comment about people hating on anyone with a dissenting opinion on Brees. I've said that for years. It is nothing ...

Oh you wanna bang on Brees now? You don’t watch so I’ll fill you in - he single handidly beat the Panthers last week AND brought this team back against the top defense in the NFL. So whatever you’re thinking, save your breath.

Yes it is! Was in Santa's sleigh, with the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Tinker Bell acting as co-pilots. Delivered in a Flying Saucer Full of "Grays" who flew in from Roswell! You'll notice that at no time during the typing of this did any of my fingers leave my hand!!!!

I wonder how bad the Vikings are hurting today?

Bang on Brees? Did you even know what you were replying to when you made your snarky comment to me? I'm not banging on Brees. But I've said he isn't the player he used to be, and people always hate that. When someone else gave the same opinion I simply said, in so many words, get ready because the Brees defenders will come. And when I say "defender" I'm not talking about someone saying he's a good QB. I say he's still good, too. It's the people who will question someone's fandom, or intellect, because they think Brees isn't playing at as high of a level. They annoy me.

By the way, I'm aware Brees had a good game last week. Didn't say anything to the contrary. But no one "single handidly" wins a game. That kind of statement is just not accurate.

Yesterday, he didn't have such a good first half did he? But, to his credit, he pulled it together in the second half. That top rated defense? People told me it was overrated during the week, to which I objected a bit, and pointed to the Saints' struggles on both lines against them in the first meeting, and said this would be a difficult matchup. Not too many people, if any, agreed with me. Well it turns out it was a pretty tough matchup, wasn't it? They made a run. But it wasn't enough.

They had a good season and they lost to the #2 seed. I'm not bashing them by pointing out simple observable facts.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

very offensive, VipHoogy. So bigoted. The Correct term for Aliens is "Trans-Gallactic-Americans." They also prefer to be called "Space-Monkeys."

Please be more sensitive.

For someone who’s boycotting the NFL, you sure aren’t short on opinion.

Re: Is The Curse back?

I never felt we were cursed but I know what you mean by being a Saints fan - you looking twice - three times before crossing a road...

ok. enough, guys. you've both made your points on each other. Dont pee pee on my brilliant thread. This whole thing is, like most of my threads, purely for fun, and thought.

'76, I do want to disclose, that I sat out 2017 also for the Flag, Military, Police, and my beliefs. Agree or disagree with that, ok. (Lets not revisit that debate.) But its a new year, our team's protest was among the smallest, and as I looked at Marcus Williams yesterday, I noticed he has some blemishes. He made a dumb mistake last night. Almost every Saints player today is young enough to have acne. I was not who I am now, when I was young enough to have acne. -- Moreover, I missed my throng of Louisiana Friends, and they welcomed me back kindly last week at our hangout in Houston.

I dont think, after being a rabid Saints supporter 30+ years, going to the game, buying a warehouse full of merchandise, & spending thousands in Louisiana, & being a season ticket holder, that anyone will soberly call me
a "bandwagon," or question my passion. I met you in real life, and I know you're a reasonable guy. -married now, I think.

MetalI'd like to invite you to also end your protest. You can still boycott the merchandise, and numerous other income sources, if you like.
We made out point, and there was an effect, and I think it will be dealt with.

I think you're wrong about Brees, but you should enjoy your Saints fandom again with your friends in Rice Country, starting with the Draft. Do consider MudBugs IX.

Now, lets start some Sh*4 The Curse is real people. Or is it?
How do you get 20 guys on injured reserve? How do you consistently get the worst of the flags. When did Gumbo become a guy-in-a-suit ? Dont give me this-- oh we have great personnel, and the future is bright, etc etc etc.... The '92 Oilers were great top to bottom. So were the Bills, So were the Vikings of the '70s....

See you soon.

Re: Is The Curse back?

I believe in God and have been a Christian for decades. I don’t believe in superstition.

However, I’m beginning to think that the Saints are cursed.
Again.
They came up for air in ‘09 but have returned to the vile black magic.

I have ZERO issue with boycotting. In fact I respect someone who's at least taking a stand. But don't come back here and troll me about what I comment on.

Mike - I'm with you man... Saints season ticket holder too. Live in Atlanta. Give em hell every day. Travel to games with my aging Dad so we can spend fun times together. This team means something to me. And losing the way we did was a tough, chalky, no-water pill to swallow.

Metal, I probably gave you more wrath than you deserved but you rubbed me wrong man.

Here's to another great offseason. One that should get us the last few pieces we need to challenge anyone for a Superbowl.
