You are Exhibit A of Saint fan-ism. It's like the Saints are an expansion team born in 2005. All you swamp tards ever talk about is "since 2006". You know the Taints existed for a long ass time before 2006 and sucked royal fuging ass. I mean really sucked.
And my Panthers still lead the all time series against you craw dad eating inbreds.
Thanks for the retort.
i doubt ccc was a fan before 06, being in missouri and all.
You guys think that maybe Payton realized that we might have to play Seattle again in the playoffs and that even if we came back to win there was pretty much no way we beat them twice in one season even in the superdome? Could explain the vanilla play calling that someone else mentioned
and another thread...
The road to MetLife goes thru Seattle (did Sean lay a trap?)
Tough loss for the home team... I don't know why many are shocked, because we do it to teams all the time. A team comes to our stadium and get sandblasted, and sent back home wondering what happened.
I think last night's game was hard to swallow because of how "average" the Seattle defense made our offense look. And it didn't help that Seattle's offense made our defense look incompetent.
But again... it happens.
I haven't (and won't) watch much football news this week, but I'm sure the Seattle hype train is in full throttle, and I also know that the Carolina bandwagon is filling to capacity, but come Sunday night... Carolina will get the same (or worse) beatdown that we took last night. We are just a different team at home (especially at night) than we are on the road.
Speaking of which... let's not think for a second that we're the worse road team in the league. Drew said this in an interview not long ago, but Denver's 2 losses were ON THE ROAD. New England's losses were all ON THE ROAD. Seattle's lone loss was ON THE ROAD. But all you'll hear is how the Saints are a bad road team (road record since 2009 be damm'd).
Anyway... the reality is this... if we want to get to the Super Bowl, we'll have to beat Seattle in their house. After last night's game I know that seems to be a tough task, but last night's game seemed VERY "vanilla" to me.
I don't know why... but to me it just seemed Sean's play-calling had absolutely no "imagination" to it. We ran the same route combos over and over (and it was open alot).
It makes me wonder if Sean Payton knew that it was gonna be tough, and just went into the game thinking that he'll play it close to the vest, and hold some of his wildcards for the next meeting. I'm not saying that we "threw the game"... it just seemed to me that we were just out there with no life. I attribute alot of that to Seattle's aggressiveness, but Payton is a slick dude, and I just wonder if he wanted to hold back and not put too much on film.
In the end... we still need to beat the stuffing out of Carolina twice and go up to St Lou and win (they've had our number lately). I look for us to get the #2 seed, and make another trip up to Seattle for the ticket to MetLife.
I think the whole Panther's organization is smelling blood today. Can't count on the Rams or Bucs to give NO one more loss. Screw the wild card. Win the division.
i can see the saints going the rest of the season without another win.
i can see us sweeping them. i can easily see them losing to the rams in st. louis (away game with loud noises scares them). and i can see the bucs finishing the season strong. they almost beat the seahawks in seattle. they can beat the saints in new orleans. at any rate, i see them more than likely losing two of their next four games. it wouldnt surprise me to even see them miss the playoffs getting beat out of a wildcard game by the 49ers and either the cowboys or the eagles.
