I highly enjoy your squirming when it comes to the actual game, DrewBreesIsGod(-AwfulOnTheRoad). You continue to cling to certain statistics as some kind of proof that if a rematch happens in January the Saints would win. And you also site the Armstead/Hardy situation as another reason why suddenly your offense is going to score at will on our defense if only Brown plays.
To counter, let's first look at one of your former-fellow Who Dats response ( I pinky swear I didn't photoshop that large rainbow fish over-top the message, double, no triple pinky-swear ) -
Ahh, what a salient point. Why don't we take a look at those precious stats?
Hmm, wow. Looks like the Vikings won that one, wait what? They didn't? Nope, your classy former-franchise went on to win that game in pussified fashion with a long field goal after hitting Favre explicitly after the whistle on multiple occasions, getting flagged for it, and getting out gained in the air and on the ground and in the TOP.
On to your next toothpick-tower argument: in the first encounter this season between the Panthers and Saints, Byron Bell was criticized heavily for giving up almost all of the significant pressure on Cam which lead to field goals on the opening two-drives and to multiple stalls throughout the game.
I could just as easily say, "All that has to happen is Byron Bell play a better game and we will obliterate Rob Ryan's Finest." But I'm not as selectively-blind as you. Galette and Jordan are good players, who at times can take over games. Same goes for Hardy and Johnson (who was not playing fully healthy need I remind you). They didn't play up to their potential in NO, but the entire D-line generated more pressure in this past game. What makes you think Brown is so consistent that he would have been able to stop Hardy after getting clown-suited by Quinn a week earlier?
Let's summarize: You're an ass-clown who can't stomach the loss so you deflect with shitty silver-linings that Saints fans don't even agree with.
(aside: if you knew anything about Photoshop you'd know that if PhillyB did shop the image, the text would have a drop-shadow and a bevel+emboss because anyone who is good at PS knows those effects aren't played out, and totally still cool)
