So did L.A. throw the game?

Re: So did L.A. throw the game?

Can't blame the 9ers for putting full effort.

There's way too much bs over the last 6 years from the NFL hosing the Saints to not consider that the fix may have been in. Especially since the NFL was advertising the 9ers in the playoffs 2 days before the game. Media markets matter, and profits rely on ad revenues. Would you like to have the 6th largest media market in the playoffs or the 50th?

No calls, bs calls, covid calls, tanking. 1 point is an anomaly, 2 points is a line, 3 points is a trend, but this many is potentially a criminal conspiracy. I may be frustrated, but I'm not blind.

They are a soft team. I hope they get throttled next weekend.
We've been bombarded for years with talk of the 'Boy Genius' and his 'leading at halftime, unbeaten' streak. They went all in with OBJ, Stafford, Miller trades. I would love to see them get humiliated in the first round.

(I'm still salty over that no call DPI. Does it show?)

At least get me back to the time where we're all playing by the same rules from start to finish.
Canít use COVIDÖ

We werenít the only team that got the shaft on having to play abs remember last year when we played the Broncos. They played with a WR at QB.

Now regarding the Rams. They are not a physical teamÖ.never have been and thatís why the 49ers have a 6 game winning streak against them. Debo made the defense look super soft and their O-line is average at best in the running game and below average in pass blocking.

We lost two games that we had no business losing and it cost us.

We have a couple of areas to address on the offense and a few on defense this off-season. None the less, Iím proud of this team because through it all they kept fighting.

No one expected us to even be in the playoff race at the start of the season or have a winning record.

I'm sure Godhell finally got through to the refs calling that game saying the Saints don't deserve to be in the hunt and to make damn sure they weren't!

When was the last time one of those scenarios EVER played out for the Saints benefit in which so and so team needs to win?

I havent seen or recalled as such for as far back as i can remember.
