Saints are still celebrating that NFCS Pre-season crown.

When did The History Channel start covering the NFL?

#2948159 Damn we're good

I once punched a horse to the ground




#2944945 At this point.... why not....

Posted by Sasquatch on 12 September 2014 - 05:23 AM

Why the hell was that game not called "Monkey Kong". Is he half barnyard animal?



Shigeru Miyamoto, the game's inventor and the one person who unquestionably knows the origins of the name he chose, has repeatedly affirmed that he used the word "donkey" to convey a sense of stubbornness and the name "Kong" to invoke the image of a gorilla.

#2930392 So why was my huddle store topic deleted?

You'll find your answer RIGHT HERE.

#2917068 Barner got cut by Eagles

Posted by Sasquatch on 30 August 2014 - 03:17 PM

They can always resign him to circumvent the conditional part correct?



The condition was that, IF he was on the Eagles active roster for 4 games this year, Panthers get the Eagles 7th round pick for 2015. Resigning him would still meet that condition.

#2915429 Saints just won the division

Posted by Sasquatch on 29 August 2014 - 05:50 PM

Last time Saints went 3-1 in preseason was 2009 and guess how that ended since you brought it up.


I believe it ended up with a great big * and your coach suspended for a year.

#2901605 Cooks drawing double coverage already.

Posted by Sasquatch on 21 August 2014 - 06:27 PM

The 3rd string QB overthrew a 55+ yard TD to Cooks who had a couple feet of separation, but he couldn't pull it in and bounced off his fingertips. 



Alright Dumbass, How about an explanation of how an overthrown incomplete pass results in a TD? 

#2896236 Things you take more seriously than Big Anus

Posted by Sasquatch on 18 August 2014 - 01:56 AM

I usually ignore 10 year olds but I'll bite

6 catches - 71 yards - TD

3 catches - 69 yards - TD

So our 4th/5th receiving option Cooks had more catches, more yards, and same TDs so far as the Pampers #1 receiver. Ooohhh burrn! At the same time sCammie looked great with the 4 completed passes, picking up where he left off last year.


I usually ignore ignorance but I'll bite


Please explain your 4th/5th option  claim. Your boy Cooks leads your team in targets with 12. Our guy has 6 putting him tied for 3rd on our team.. 

#2890546 Deepest and best backfield?

Posted by Sasquatch on 14 August 2014 - 04:33 PM

What stats did "I make up"?



You took them from PFF.


Same thing.

#2889755 NFL poll on offensive rookies

Posted by Sasquatch on 14 August 2014 - 01:54 AM

The guys I posted tweets from are the local newspapers Saints beat writer, other local newspapers sports writer, and Detillier is very respected pro football analyst that writes for many papers and sites and has a radio show too. So common thing is all these tweets are from people that get paid to write SAINTS content, 



#2883365 WR Brandon Coleman (the guy that's taller than KB) Most Improved

Posted by Sasquatch on 09 August 2014 - 03:36 AM

Panthers picking up where they left off last year on offense,


Then we can count on being back to back NFCS champs?

#2881950 WR Brandon Coleman (the guy that's taller than KB) Most Improved

At least I can say KBs movie was kinda funny!


I don't think anybody will be surprised that you enjoyed a movie about fast food.
