I usually just lurk on these boards, but wanted to wish y'all luck today.

There's nothing that would make today sweeter than seeing the Giants extend the Falcons playoff losing streak.

As a Saints fan, I notice it's usually a pretty good idea to keep my mouth shut around here, especially lately. There's a lot of hate for the Saints. I'm not going to sit here and try to convince you otherwise. Me? I've always liked the Giants (as much as you can like a conference/nondivisional team) and enjoy watching them play. Sharing a division with some of my most hated NFC teams doesn't hurt, either ;)

Like I said, I'm not going to try to change anyone's minds on the Saints. I generally enjoy the boards and look to keep it that way.

I'm glad that y'all got into the playoffs (and the Cowboys, Eagles, Seahawks, and Bears didn't) and for today, we've got common cause. I hope y'all flatten Atlanta.

I've seen some posts about how the Saints are "dirty" or the OLine gets away with holding - well, the Falcons OLine is dirtier. And keep an eye out for offensive pass interference. Roddy White loves to pushoff and it's so frustrating.

Good luck!

I appreciate your post and congrats on your win. I don't necessarily hate the Saints, although you guys have owned us in recent times. I think what most Giants fans hate is how the league in general seems to favor offenses and passing. Teams like ours, which has always prided itself about having a great defense, have suffered a loss with these new rules that have been put in place. I'm sure Steeler and Raven fans from the old school also feel the same way.

Alot of people around here are hoping if we make a long playoff run, that the saints get knocked out. They like our chances better vs GB and SF.

I would love to grace saints again for a trip to SB. I say u have face the bully that has kicked sand on u lat few times now that we are a bit healthier. Nothing like a little revenge.

But first things first. Falcons and if we win today, packers are not going to just lay down for us.

Come back in two weeks... And see if we are talking playoff football or draft picks.

We can have some good sparring if we are both still alive

Thanks for the responses, everyone.

To the larger issue of today's offensive performances - I can't say I fully disagree. While I enjoy watching the Saints offense operate and I think we run the ball quite well (it's not just a chuck-and-duck offense; the Saints OLine in the middle allows for a lot of running and we can run the screen quite well), I don't want the NFL to turn into what we saw with Baylor vs. Washington with each team scoring 50-60 points. That wasn't fun and it became quite boring.

I said multiple times last night that I think the Saints' Chris Ivory is my favorite running back to watch. Nothing against Thomas who ran like a man possessed last night and excels on screens. Nothing against Sproles who is electrifying. I love them both. But when Chris Ivory runs, he really runs hard and is hard to bring down and manages to find room where I thought there wasn't any.

I also like watching excellent defense. The Saints don't have that up front with regard to QB pressure.

I can understand where y'all are coming from in that regard.

And I hope today that when the Falcons try to open it up and run that no huddle, the Giants QB pressure gets to Ryan. he doesn't perform well under pressure. His arm isn't great and his accuracy falls off a cliff the farther down the field he has to pass it. I really want to see a different game than last night.

Well, I'll amend that. I'd like to see better QB pressure from the Giants defense than I saw from the Saints or Lions last night. However, I'm not going to be upset if Manning and Co. put 40+ on that Falcons defense :)

I despise the Saints...I HATE them.

Ask me why?

I have no real reason...I just hate them

I hate them so much that seeing them lose next week would be equivalent to seeing the Eagles/cowboys/redskins lose the Superbowl in the last 15 seconds because one of their WR's started to show off before scored and defensive player forces fumble and the fattest defensive player on the field returned it for a TD


I hate the Saints.

terrific game!

Even with the refs blowing some terrible calls - from the beginning of the game to the end, y'all managed to demolish the "'Ferrari" offense.

I loved the defense. Loved the swagger. Loved the dirty bird TD celebration. Love the 4th down stops.

Oh, how I hate the Falcons and oh how sweet this was to watch.

Best of luck next week!

You too, maybe we'll see you in the super dome. I hope not, because I want the giants to win the super bowl and nobody's beating the saints in the superdome, but you get my point. Good luck

After Katrina it is hard for me not to support the city except when their a competitor. Nevertheless, we are hoping the 49ers woop you so we can get some redemption.

And noone wants to play in your dome.

bump...

Good luck again today, G-Men and fans. As I've said before, I've always found it easy to root for NYG when there's no conflict of interest re: my Saints.

Of the teams remaining, the Giants are the team I'd like to see win most. I'd love to see the Giants defense play inspired ball and get after Aaron Rodgers. I'd also like to see Manning stretch the field and connect with the WR corps while the rush keeps the guys up front bruised and honest.

It was a great game to watch - rooting for the Giants - last week. Hoping for more of the same this week.

Best of luck the rest of the way!

Props for this post man. Its no secret that I hate the Saints. Mainly cause we've had to play at their dome and get our *** kicked. Plus with all the recent success that they have had, they've garnered a lot of obnoxious bandwagon jumpers that are total trash.

Not all saints fans are like this however. And you seem like a good dude. I remember reading one of your boards after the Seattle loss and most of the guys there were classy and took it well. Also gave Seattle their props.

Thanks for the well wishes. I hope we smother the Packers.

okay

I am a superstitous fan. I made this thread before the Falcons game. I bumped it before the Packers game. I have to bump it again, today. And hopefully I get the chance to bump it on Super Bowl Sunday.

I cannot stand the 49ers, going back to the 80s-90s misery they gave the Saints as rivals in the NFC West. We should have taken care of business last week - no doubt. But we had too many mistakes and it was painful to watch. So they go on, and it's up to NYG to knock them out of the playoffs.

Good luck making that happen today!
