    It's not Alex's arm I worry about but the receivers catching his throws. Vernon Davis dropped a sure TD pass in the yesterday's game.
    Crabtree seems to be finding some chemistry with Alex as does a rookie named Williams. He's kinda small but has real soft hands. He could be a break-thru player on our play-off run.(much like Starks was last year for the Pack)

    :( Poor Sean. He enunciates swear words better when cussing players and referees than McCarthy though :p

    May want to worry about Patrick Willis more. I think he should be fine but saw he might miss "a little bit of time."

    Maybe this is Saints voodoo already in action here.

    Not exactly.


    Once upon a time the Falcons used to almost always sweep them, like 5 years in a row. That rivalry is always back and forth from what I remember.

    Yep that's right, if the Saints had home field, EVERY team in the NFC would be scared to death of them.

    I haven't been to the dome in over 10 years, but I know even back then it had magic powers for them to beat the defending Super Bowl champ Rams in the wild card game :D

    Luckily, the Saints at home in a cozy dome and the Saints in Lambeau in 10 degree weather are totally different teams.

    Holy smokes. What a game, what a game. And you were actually there? Gosh I can't imagine how much the Dome was rocking.

    As long as he's ready for Pittsburg I think we'll be OK.

    I was at the dome that year, but that particular game. I've been there 4 times (1991, 1992, 1994, 1995, 2000) but I haven't seen it in person since the hurricane, they claim it's bigger than it used to be.

    No way the Packers pull an '09 Colts. They need to stay hot and they know it....

    The 9ers aren't going to hold the Saints to a few FGs. I don't care how good their D is, it ain't gonna happen.

    I want to see how well the Saints handle Chris Johnson on the road this weekend. Saints are 31st in the league giving up yards per carry at, at 5.1.


    The Packers also had no issues it seemed getting decent yardage on the ground vs.the Saints in week 1 with Starks 4.8 ypc and Grant 4.4.

    Okay, so now it's official that the Packers have clinched a first-round bye, and now clinching the #1 seed is simple to figure out: either a Packers win or a 49ers loss wraps it up. (On another note, bad loss for the 49ers - could it be that they have peaked?)

    I was not that impressed with NO either today.
    Not a great road team.

    Refs played a huge role in that game.


    Final score should have been 30-17.

    The only obstacle between us and the #1 seed is the Chiefs, and they got destroyed by the Jets 37-10. Of course, the game takes place at Arrowhead, and GB never really plays well against them.

    What happened to the 49ers? I thought they were going to crush the Cards.

    Same ol Niner offense... moves the ball great down the field then stalls in the red zone. Had to kick 4 FGs today. Frustrating!!! :(

    Akers has been kicking so many FGs for the Niners this year that he's about to break Jerry Rice's record for total points in a season.

    Thank you. The officiating was horrific today.

    The refs play a role in a lot of games Bogie, I still am not impressed though with the Saints on the road, regardless.


    I don't think much has changed. People here mostly seemed to think the Saints would be in GB for the title game. Now the Niners lose and they still think the Saints will be in GB for the title game. I don't think there was much change.

    Depends. The Niners have a few tough weeks coming up. Steelers at home will be big. But, Ben is banged up vs. a good D and so is Pouncey. Tough game.

    Then on a short week going to Seattle won't be a walk in the park either. Seahawks are a different team at home with that noise.

    You're right. Like the last play where the Saints knock two receivers to the ground and got called for neither.

    Or when one of the Titans waited until Brees threw the ball before grabbing him by the jersey and throwing him to the ground, which went uncalled?

    Saw the receivers get knocked down, didn't see Brees get knocked down.

    And what's worse, not seeing one foul, or not seeing two separate ones in the same play?

    He did. It was ridiculous that wasn't called, and was one of many bad calls. Bad calls and non calls, I should say, which went both ways, but primarily hurt the Saints.

    I think you should have watched that game. 2 TD's called back, and Locker's touchdown he didn't even cross the plain. Even after the game, people are talking about the Graham touchdown that was called back. That was HORRIBLE officiating. Who ever called that game made the refs in the Patriots/Raiders game form 2002 very proud. I'm still trying to learn how the Graham Touchdown with a knee and 2 feet down was not a TD, but Locker crossing the goal out of bounds is a TD? That was just total BS.

    Honestly, the officiating is not even a real concern to me. I will try to watch it all sometime this week but overall I still don't think the Saints are a great road team and as big a threat outside the dome. Simple as that. I think the Saints are a very good team but I am not going to panic over them either right now. It's probably much how the Pats fans felt about the Colts years back. Yeah they are great, yeah they score a lot, yeah they have receivers, yeah the QB is going to the HOF, but get them in our house in January and they have a good shot at being toast in our house by the end of the game. I KNEW the Colts would lose those playoff games in Foxboro ahead of time. I knew it. I used to try to deny it but it was almost inevitable. The Colts were a dome team with a D that did not travel well and a QB who was his best indoors.
