I like the jalapeno tabasco. I eat tabasco with everything.
I like the later games only because I can drink that much more heavily on Saturday evening. That's all I can say personally. Hurts you Mike with all the driving I'm sure!

Are the Saints going to allow teams to
stay close in the "Late Games" this year?

Just attempting to get a conversation going, but I guess not....

Can scheduling times can play a part on the performance of an entire team?

You can start a conversation any time, I'm just trying to understand what the actual point is. About the only 2 patterns I see in what you posted is that the Saints have not scored 40+ points in games @ 3PM and the defense has not allowed more than 10 points in games @ 3PM.

As for general performance, I think playing earlier would affect one's play more, like a West Coast team going to the East Coast and playing a 1PM EDT time, where the WC's team "body clock" would be at 10AM.

Re: Game TImes ???

I think early play would be a BIG adjustment for a West Coast team coming to the East Coast and playing an early game.

Not really sure what the Saints Practice schedule is... Are they practicing early and the 3PM time is when they are normally recouperating from Pratice/Sleeping...

I don't think this is a big issue, but if it all the late games wind up being what appears to be close games it would be recurring (and yes 2 games in a statistical view is INSANE - but maybe I am there).

I know moving from coast to coast is a BIG issue in College football. I'm sure it's the same for PRO. They fly in, try to get over jet lag, play and then leave.
