from beautiful Miami, Florida (February 7, 2010)!

After all the mess the Saints and City of New Orleans went through since 2005! They are clearly the underdog in this game. Will Sean Payton call this game with his hands stuck up his ass like he did against the Vikings? Will Reggie Bush be having too much fun with Kim Kardassian?

We'll find out soon. In the meantime:

As for the Colts, they could have went 18-0 and be playing this game for the undefeated season. Instead, manangement just wanted to one-up the Patriots on the regular season record. People knocked them for weeks, but it doesn't matter know. Colts are in the big game. Will Manning's big forehead help the Colts win the game (Saints have some nice defensive schemes)? We'll see in two weeks!

Agreed. I thought Payton called a curious game against a team that had an injury or two to the secondary. He is going to have to open it up if he wants to keep up with Manning and the Colts.

I have a feeling this Super Bowl is going to be epic.

Sorry. You don't BLINDSIDE a QB at the knees after he's CLEARLY released the football. That equals bad karma for your own offense. If you have a horseshoe on your helmet and the guys with that cute little fleur de le try to do the same thing to Manning that they got away with on Favre...it's gonna be ugly. As much as I don't like the Colts I'm pullin' for them in this one. I want to see the Manning brother who SHOULD have the fat contract surpass his dad yet again by beating his old team.

Maybe not throwing the flag there was payback for the earlier flag when the guy was already in the air when Favre threw and the just barely put a hand on the out of bounds player flag.

I'm fairly conflicted about the game. I'm not exactly sure who I support as of yet.

I like Indy because Manning is one of the greatest QBs of all time and deserves his day in the sun. I dislike Indy because they are a division rival and I would love it if they got their butts kicked.

I like the Saints just because of who they are, and it's their first time there. I disklike the Saints because of Reggie Flying Bush.

But I have to say it's not going to take up a lot of space in my mind thinking on this. I don't care who wins because neither team is the Texans.

Should be an interesting game and a good one. The media will focus on the "business as usual" mantra that is the Colts vs the drama of the Saints making it after all these years.

I really wish they wouldn't talk about Katrina and all that but they will ad nauseum. I think I'll skip all the pre game blowhard media reports and just watch the game. Some of it anyway.

I think the Colts take it...Peyton being the difference maker. He handled the Jets D. He can do the same with the Saints.

I could only hope....

but I've seen this accusation thrown around pretty liberally and it's pretty much bullshit

as a Saints fan, I found plenty to complain about.

They got flagged five times while we got 9 flags thrown at us for 50+ more yards - 2 of them were protecting Favre and were terrible calls. The McCray shot at his knees should've been. The Hargrove one was garbage as was the one where McCray took Favre out when he was clearly squaring up to lay a block. Though there was some confusion on who the penalty was one - was it a bad penalty on Favre who was blocking or a ticky tack hit-out-of-bounds - they called McCray's number and he was the one who hit Favre.

If they wanted the Saints to win, the penalty discrepancy would not have been so pronounced. They would've given Reggie a TD without forcing Payton use a challenge. They don't call PI on Porter in the end zone. They call holding for the OLine mugging that was going on all game. Etc.

It was a pretty poorly officiated game for both teams.

As for this conspiracy theory? What does the NFL stand to gain? Seems to me most people wanted Favre/Manning badly. Higher ratings. More people watching. More interest. Etc....

Personally, I do agree with a lot of people that the Katrina-related reportage can get old and tiresome and, at times, can be unrelated. As a result, people will speculate that the NFL wants a title for this hurricane-ravaged region.

My counter to that would be that if there's one thing that I see more coverage of and comments about - its Brett Favre. If there's one NFL story that trumps Saints/Katrina, it's Brett Favre. If there's one storyline the media would be more obsessed with going into the Super Bowl, it's Brett Favre. If there's one story most deserving of a quick and painful death, imo, it's Brett Favre's. Perhaps the tin foil hat wouldn't appear as tight if the story opposite this nonsensical Saints conspiracy was the story that won't die. Ever.

Like I said, I think it's a pretty baseless charge and always seems to be the last argument in the defense of an argument that's poor to begin with.

I am not going to say the Saints didn't benefit from bad calls.

But so did the Vikes - led to two TDs for them.

Bad officiating. Both sides. There is no conspiracy.

If it benefited the Saints, I'd take it - and wouldn't apologize or feel bad.

Hell, I wish you were right.

People act like the New Orleans defense didn't cause those turnovers though. The Saints offense couldn't capitalize on them. Also, the Colts defense has not played an offense as good as the Saints' this playoffs (Ravens and Jets? Nah). The Saints defense has (Cardinals and Vikings? Yep). Should be a good game. I think people are overrating Indy's defense actually.

RazorOye
01-26-2010, 01:02 PM
People act like the New Orleans defense didn't cause those turnovers though.

it's the easy man's and lazy fan's out - the Saints defense did what it did ALL season - gave up yards, but fought for turnover opportunities

The Saints do not have world beaters up front. Ellis is phenomenal as a second year tackle up front - but he's been hobbled a fair bit. The other DTs are journeymen for a reason - Hargrove has moments, but the rest are just bleh. Will Smith is sporadic and doesn't keep containment. Grant has been decent against the run.

Our LB corps isn't great to begin with and we have no depth. Our OLB are adequate with each having flashes from time to time. Vilma is the heart and mind and soul of that defense in the middle. Love him.

The strength is in our secondary.

Greer is FINALLY getting noticed - a couple of prominent articles make reference to him as a something of a poor man's Revis. The truth is, he's been amazing this year. His closing speed is among the best in the NFL and despite being challenged a lot before he got hurt, he had amazing statistics and performed admirably.

Porter gambles a bit more, but he's been a surprise since his rookie year. Between the two seasons (he's missed a lot of time due to injuries and that's a concern), he's got nearly a full season under his belt and looks good. Sharper and Harper have also been $$$$ this year.

So when Williams comes in, he looks at the personnel and says that with the front 7 we have, we MUST create turnovers because we aren't going to be able to contain a lot of offenses.

So they PRACTICE turnovers.

Did you see Porter's forced fumble? He punched the ball out while Berrian was in the air and had his other hand wrapped. It was a really impressive play. And Smith's forced fumble? He had a good look at the ball in Harvin's hand and made a good play.

Even the offense sees it - Meachem in the Redskins game had that strip and TD after an interception in what I think was one of the most - if not THE most - impressive individual play of the year. He credited Williams for that - for the mentality of turnovers he preaches, the strip tactics and drills practiced every day.

And Greer almost had a third INT - hit him square.

The two interceptions - I read that Vilma called an audible on BOTH of those defensive formations/assignments and people were in position to make a play. And did.

This defense - out of necessity - has to be an opportunistic one because we don't have the personnel of a Ravens or Jets or Vikings defense.

We've done it all year - live by it, die by it.

And yet, people act like they were gifts. Some of them were no doubt mishaps by the Vikings - like the bad handoff. That one I'd call a "gimme" turnover. Well, we had one, too - with Reggie on the muffed punt.

Giving up yards and taking away the ball is how we have to play defense.

And it's entirely possible that if we don't get turnovers against the Colts, it could be very, very, very ugly. No doubt. The game scares me. But so did Warner. And so did Favre.

I like our CBs very much. Our LBs end up matching up against slot receivers or Dallas Clark or a RB out of the backfield - that's worrisome.

But we are in the game - we have a chance. And only a couple of teams can still say that.

Mr teX
01-26-2010, 01:38 PM
manning will handle them the same way he handled the jets defense. Initially, williams will be coming & coming hard for manning until they get burned a few times thru the air & with screens & draws. Williams will then back off & at that point, it'll be open season on their secondary who by the way don't have a Revis shutting down 1 side of the field.

The little thought about advantages indy have (outside of manning that is) is that indy's lb's can run and cover a bit which will help them in the long run whereas NO's lb's really can't. That's going to leave lots of complete mismatches on Clark. Also, Indy's edge rushers can generate pressure fairly consistently by themselves (without blitzing, this is not the case with NO) & both of them are speed rushers which won't really allow them to shift protection just 1 way like they did with Minny against Allen. Also, after watching Minny fumbling their season away, U can bet that emphasis in practice for the colts will be on ball security. So i don't anticipate NO getting as many turnovers.

Great post.

And Warner and Favre have something in common. Before playing the Saints, those two were barely touched (during the playoffs at least). When they played them, they were rocked...

I think we should ALL be rooting for the Colts.... why?

So New Orleans and all the bandwagon Saints fans can taste the pain we Texans fans feel twice a year every year recently when facing the Colts. I truly enjoyed the Jets and Ravens getting a taste of this, I had friends who were SO confident going into their games and laughed at me for telling them they'll feel my pain and they all came out giving the Texans credit for the way they've played the Colts in past years even though we haven't beat them. The Texans certainly have given the Colts the most difficulty this year, excluding the two games at the end of the year where the Colts threw in the towel.

So Texans fans SHOULD be rooting for the Colts so others can feel our pain and realize how tough it is to beat Manning.

Here are some thougts I have on the game. First, the Saints would be such a feel good story if they were to win the SB. They should attack the one Colts weakness their secondary and Drew has both the arm and the wideouts to do just that. N.O. has the 25th ranked D in the league everyone says, their D bends but does not break well, just remember with Manning at the helm it does not take much for him to turning just a bending D into one that breaks as is the case with almost every D he sets his eyes on. He will be the greatest QB of all time by the time he retires IMO. A largely suffering Indy running game should be exsposed by N.O. though there were some good sings being shown in the AFC C.G. Dallas C. and Reggie Wayne have to be slowed down because they just are not going to be stopped for the whole game. Try and slow down both of them ok, that just means more passes thrown to Austin C. and rookie WR P.G. Everything points to an Indy win on paper but this is the NFL where anything might happen on any given Sunday. For me, though I am just hoping for an all out good hard mouth slobber knocker of a football game and I am sure it will be that way no matter who wins at least I hope so. Also, I would not mind seeing Drew win a ring at all. I have said that before I know.

I don't think the Colts defense is good enough to stop the Saints defense. In the playoffs, they only had to play teams with strong running games and suspect passing games. They could load up in the box and not be hurt. They load the box against the Saints and Drew Brees will light them up. This will be the most balanced offense that the Colts defense has faced all season.

The Saints defense has had to play tough offenses in Arizona and Minnesota.

they are the strength of our D

The DLine and LB corps are much more suspect

Porter and Greer make up one of the best CB tandems in the NFL. Greer is finally getting a little bit of notice for his play this year - which has been a welcome surprise. Most Saints fans thought we were getting Jason David 2.0 and were doubtful. He made us believers. Steller corner play.

Porter is a 2nd year player who excels at press coverage - he gambles a bit more than Greer and as the year developed, opposing QBs stopped targeting Greer's side as much. Porter is more vulnerable, but learns quickly and is a strong corner.

Sharper is having a very solid year - he doesn't have the legs and closing speed and can get beaten over the top. But he's smart, savvy, and we've been very pleased with his performance. He has been stronger in run support than we had anticipated.

Harper is a strong safety who is poor at covering anyone more athletic than an eligible tackle. But in run support, he's a very good strong safety.

Our secondary unit features two Pro-Bowlers in Sharper and Harper. And if Greer had been healthy the entire season, I think he'd make it 3. Our LB corps and DLine has 1. While Pro-Bowl recognition isn't necessarily reflective of people who are completely deserving, I use it here to make the point that our LB and DL are weaker, as a defensive unit, than the back end.

When our CBs are healthy, the defense looks different. The passing yards - for people who watch Saints games - are typically products of mismatches, catches over the middle, and poor pressure from our front 7.

That's why Dallas Clark and slot receivers for the Colts scare me much more than whoever Greer is covering out wide.

I wouldn't be shocked to see Manning pass for 300+ yards - he's the game's best. But those numbers aren't solely the secondary's responsibility - and, in most Saints games this year, it's been a product of being beaten across the middle and such. We didn't get beat deep this year nearly as much as last.

I was referring to the CBs, didn't the Saints start several CBs this year?

we started more than I ever hoped :(

Porter and Greer both missed about half the season - and that's when things got really, really ugly for our D. They were just a completely different unit than the squad that started the year. Williams said from early on that our strength was the secondary and our CBs were the key to the defense. We schemed around them - when Porter and Greer got hurt we were left with little.

Gay is our 3rd CB and nickelback. He's a pretty smart and aware player, but man coverage is not his strength. But then he got hurt.

Jenkins was brutal in coverage much of the time - and anytime he was lined up, opposing QBs were targeting him constantly and he was getting burned with an uncomfortable regularity. I am not sure if he will make it as a CB. But I really love him as a player. He had two game-changing plays on special teams that showed awareness, work ethic, skill - he will be a good player for us I think in the long run. Perhaps not at CB.

But he played hurt as well and has been inactive the last couple of weeks due to injury.

Osama Young has played some at CB - drafted as a CB - but his future is at safety. Very good ST player. Instinctive and smart. Just probably not going to be a CB. But he was forced into coverage duty a few times because of attrition.

Then we had a couple of guys off the street: Mike McKenzie and Chris Macalister. McKenzie played out of his mind against the Pats - but the week after that, you could see a steady decline. He was eventually cut. Macalister met a similar fate, only earlier.

When you have to grab two guys off the street to play at CB, when that position is what the scheme has been built around, you're hurting. And it showed.

Sharper had to help in coverage more - not his strong suit. He played less the free roaming QB-reading safety than he'd like and his INTs went down, in opportunity and number.

With Greer and Porter starting, it transforms our defense. I know it sounds homer-iffic to say that Greer is a Pro Bowl quality corner. But I really think it's true. Peter King (I know, I know...) wrote that "I think Jabari Greer is the poor man's Darrelle Revis (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/peter_king/01/24/titlegames/5.html). I will guarantee you that one of the first things Peyton Manning will do this week as he gathers video to watch to prep for the Super Bowl is study Greer, who he hasn't seen very much as a Buffalo corner before leaving for the Saints in free-agency" and called Greer one of the most underrated free agent acquisitions of last offseason.

With both of them healthy and playing, it allows Sharper to provide better support in the middle of the field. It allows Harper to play more run support. It gives the DLine a bit more time to get some push. It typically limits the deep plays.

One of the best ways to beat the defense was what Minny did on the first drive - short passes and routes over the middle of the field at intermediate depth, under the coverage exploiting the mismatches there, targeting receivers streaking down the seams, and forcing Shanle and Fujita to help in the coverage.

Peyton will recognize this, I know that. And he'll probably shred it.

In all honesty, i think the only chance we have is winning a game that is somewhat of a shootout and we manage to get our hands on some turnovers.

How do you think I feel! I m in the heart of the Black and Gold nation. Three of the local channels right now are having Saints special broadcasts. But I suppose the fans have a right too be.

But it really is not that bad! I can only imagine how it will be when the TEXANS finally make it to the big game one day. I have been living over here since the storm and is has been pretty cool to see how the Saints fans have been able to watch their team move up the NFL food chain. If there is another team as deserving as the TEXANS and Houston fans, it would be the Saints. The fans here have suffered a long time. As a huge Oiler fan and now a TEXAN fan, we all should understand that.

Brees does a great job of representing Lone Star State football talent as a product of Austin Westlake. He is absolutely loved over here and is a great Texas product.

Go Saints or Geaux Saints!

First time in franchise history that they've been in the Super Bowl. All the crap that's happened to the area of the country since 2005. Let them be happy. When the Saints made it to the Super Bowl, there wasn't one arrest or incident (reported at least) in New Orleans.

I don't think it'll be thank big of a deal if he has a big game and they win. People know by now that Mario is a very good player and Bush is not the reason why the Saints are where they are. Maybe if he produced like Chris Johnson (who Bush was suppose to be) over the season, but he didn't.

The Colts have pressure on them for two reasons: if they loose the Super Bowl, Colts fans will say "You should have gone 16-0 at least!" but if they win everyone will say "You could have gone 19-0, why didn't you?"

Aside from that, Peyton Manning is one of the best there is, he will find a way to rally his team and keep the game close. Also, without Freeney the Colts still have a solid defense that should be able to get pressure on Drew Brees.

BTW, no team that has lost to the Bucs in the regular season has gone on to win the Super Bowl just so you know.

They are getting more than a little long in the tooth. Every time I saw a closeup I cringed. I was just waiting for him to say "I hope I die before I get old."

Don't mean you can't turn up the volume though.

At least they can still sing and play unlike a lot of the older bands out there still playing today who've totally lost the vocals and can't play either.

I loved the show.

I dig the Who RZ. It sounded great (after some flubs at the beginning). IMO it was the best one since U2. But man they just look ancient. Though I would much rather have old men with talent than hacks like the Jonas Brothers.

For the record I didn't think Prince was awful. Not great, but not the worst.

Prince was ok, the Who are better for me. Yes they are old and look ancient except the drummer but they still have "IT".

I'm rooting for the Colts. here's why: I think Peyton Manning is the best QB in the NFL and one of the best of all time. But I have Tom Brady fans tell me all the time about how much Brady is better. And the only argument they have to fall back on is that "Peyton Manning can't get it done in the postseason, which is when it counts". If he leads the Colts to a victory, they won't have a leg to stand on

I was only a Saints fan for one night. If it had been the Jets playing, I probably would have rooted for them.

2. Nashville Hillbillies
3. Horse face and his merry band of Colts

Let the Reggie Bush love fest begin!

In order for it to begin (again) the original one would have had to stop at some point.

I just keep thinking that we've seen the Colts 16 times since 2002 and we still can't seem to figure them out. The Saints saw them once three seasons ago since Sean Payton got there and they study some film, get two weeks to practice, and take them to the woodshed in the second half in what is typically Texans epic-fail time.

I can't quit thinking of the discussions regarding Kubiak and Payton and how they coach in such different divisions (ours is so hard and theirs is so weak) and the idea that if their positions were reversed Kubiak might be having more success and Payton might be having a hard time getting over .500

I keep thinking of that and thinking "Horseshit!"

Congrats Saints, way to show the world how it's done against the Colts.
