  1. Was this the worst call in NFL history?

    I had changed my password and wasn't planning on posting here again, but I recovered it just to respond to this post, and it's the last thing I'll ever say here. I feel sad for you. I mean, don't get me wrong. I know what it's like to feel upset over a football game. But it's one thing to be mad about a football game 6 days later. You're here NINE YEARS LATER and you're still there, wallowing in your anger and bitterness. How miserable your life must be! Here's the thing though: Saints fans will get over this long before the Vikings fans get over their misery, even though you've had a nine year headstart. Why? Because we've been to the top of the mountain. We've cried our tears of unrestrained joy and felt the sublime, surreal experience of "Oh my God, I can't believe it finally happened!" When Bobby McCray and Remi Ayodele flattened Brett Favre, I pumped my fist. When Reggie Bush pulled a contortionist act to hit the pylon and score the TD, I high-fived all my friends. When Favre threw the interception to Tracy Porter at the end of regulation, I laughed. When Pierre Thomas returned the opening kickoff of overtime out to midfield, I was running right there with him, my arms spread with glee, knowing that we were about to finally take the biggest stage in sports. When Thomas converted the 4th down later in that drive, I felt the pride swelling in me. And when Drew leapt over the pile, arms outstretched like a black-and-gold clad Superman, or an ethereal angel being come to take us to the promised land, I knew it would happen. It was destiny. When Garrett Hartley's kick split the uprights, I was soaring as high as the football. And two weeks later, I sat with the crowd in Miami, five of my closest friends with me, eating the best Cuban sandwich I've ever had in my life and watching my team on its way to The Greatest Joy. When Tracy Porter returned that interception, my heart burst through my chest. And when Vilma broke up the final pass attempt to truly seal the game, it burst through again. 31-28 and 31-17. Two sets of numbers emblazoned forever on my heart, my mind and my soul. Those are the scores of the games you see. The game we beat the Vikings in to get to the Super Bowl, and the score of the Super Bowl. I bought the Blu-Ray set of the entire playoff run. It's beautiful. Once a year or so, I take it out and watch it and experience those moments all over again, as if it were yesterday. My beautiful sons are 7 and 5. They are too young to remember the Saints Super Bowl win, but I tell them about it often. They ask to hear the story of how it all happened. I tell them again. They can't get enough of The Greatest Story Ever. But you won't ever get to feel that. Your Vikings are simply, sadly, the biggest chokers in sports history. That's all they'll ever be. You have had so many chances and you blew them all. From Fran Tarkenton to Gary Andersen to Brett Favre to getting disposed of by the Eagles like a wayward piece of garbage on the freeway. And now you have Kirk Cousins. And that is your destiny. You'll never know that feeling. And that makes me happy. And also sad for you at the same time. This is the last post I will ever make here. I hope you find peace someday.

    Removed You're better than this. I can't begin to understand your frustration, but I'm asking you to take a deep breath. I've got a ton of respect for you, so I'm asking to tone it down. Thanks. - ET

    I'm just going to leave this board and not come back for a while. Tired of the trash talk. If your team got screwed over, you'd be mad too, and don't even try to say otherwise. Really tired of hearing about how we're "whining" and all this and that. It's garbage. The game was stolen. You can try to justify it and make excuses and lash out at Saints fans, but you all know damn well if you were in the same position you'd be mad too. End of story. It's bad enough to lose that game in that way without having every Tom **** and Harry on this message board trying to tell you how it really was your fault and trying to act like you've been victimized by us being mad about the result. **** that. **** that up the *** sideways with a refrigerator. I've had enough of this horse****.

    If I wanted to, I could allow all the sore winner comments from Rams fans here let me "hate them more than any team in the league." But I'm not, and my team lost the game. You all won it and you're acting like you've been horribly wronged anyway. Who cares? Your team is going to the Super Bowl. Seriously! If I was a Rams fan right now I wouldn't give half a wet fart if somebody didn't like it.
  6. I would lose Coleman, Crawley and Teo (I like Teo but hell he wasn't even active most of the season). I'm also not sure we need a 32-year-old Patrick Robinson at $5.4 million.
  7. I don't think Unger is nearly as expendable as some of you seem to think. I know the middle of the line had its issues at the end of the season but I'm putting that on Peat and Warford way more than Unger. We simply had too many injuries and people trying to play hurt. Peat I'm on the fence about. We know how good he can be when he is healthy. He was not ever healthy this year. But even if he is 100% I don't love him at that cap number. I don't think Ingram is at all expendable either. We clearly had issues on offense when he was suspended those first 4 games. We need that dude. You're not going to draft a RB who will just waltz in and fill his shoes like nothing ever happened. And obviously we need a TE. We at least need somebody on Watson's level, doesn't have to be a superstar just a guy who can block and catch 45-50 passes.

    Nobody is asking you to apologize or to not be happy. I think there is some insecurity going on here, where you're tired of people saying "the Saints should've won" because you feel like they're saying your team should've lost. And believe me, if anybody knows how that feels, it's a Saints fan, after having to put up with Vikings fan comments from 2009 for almost a decade now. I'm tired of trolls and sore winners, no matter what team they root for.
  9. GDT - NFCCG Rams (13-3) @ Saints (13-3): Get loud.

    I never had a problem with the Vikings fans until they started talking Katrina smack and then made it a huge thing for like the next 5 years where you literally could not read any Saints article on the web without 10,000 of them showing their hatefulness and ugliness in the comments. But I'm not stupid enough to think that's all of them either. Actually one of my very best friends in the world is a Viking fan. Wonderful guy. It's easy to demonize people from afar.

    The picture tells the story. Not sure how you can dispute that it happened. We could go around all day and all night whining about who had more calls go against them but it seems pretty stupid and pointless to do so. Rams fans would be better off devoting their energy to what's ahead instead of trying to play the victim over a game they won.

    on the INT Brees was hit up high. The defender had both hands on his helmet/facemask. Should've been a personal foul/auto first down. At least that's what I'm assuming he's referring to.
  13. Who is a tougher matchup for New England, Rams or Saints?

    Also hands to the face on the defender on the INT play. Nobody's talking about that, but if Rams fans want to go through a littany of missed calls then that should've been a personal foul auto first down for the Saints.
  14. Is the Saints Window Closed?

    What have I said here that amounts to homerism or blindness, or that is not eminently true? Please explain yourself. Or else stop talking **** and lose the worthless trash hot takes.
  15. Is the Saints Window Closed?

    Then the Saints have "been in trouble" since he signed with the team. Yet here he is holding multiple NFL career passing records and the Saints have made 7 playoff runs in 13 years despite fielding some of the worst defenses in NFL history.
