View Full Version : Saints Fans Complaining about Cut-Blocking


HOU-TEX
08-22-2011, 02:04 PM
I'm not a member of the SaintsReport message board, but I was reading a few threads they had on the game. It's kinda ironic to me. They're bitching about our cut blocking, yet their Olineman tried doing a similar block on Mario during a screen.

To be honest, as a guy who played a lot of football at the DE position, I hated getting cut. Then again, it's legal. Which means it's football.

A lot of the comments are moronic

Boohoo. It was Kubiak's master plan to keep our offense on the field... he was so terrified of Reggie Bush playing Decoy he forgot the dude was in Miami now.

I've heard this **** before, and it's just that, bull****. If it was that dangerous, the NFL would outlaw it. Jesus H Christ you can't even tackle people anymore with flags being thrown at you. They are kicking off from the 35 to prevent runbacks and injuries on returns, you can't look at a frigging QB crosseyed or you get a flag.

Come on now. If cut blocking was that much of a problem (other than in fans minds) it would have gone away by now. And all 32 teams do it, they just don't do it on ALL their running plays like we do.

It's just bull**** from pissed off Ain'ts fans, pay no attention to it.

Ive cut many of people, and Ive been cut many of times, and Ill say this. A blindside hit does alot more than a cut block. I have never even hurt a single person cutting them. Its a complete myth that it actually hurts your knees, unless it is a fluke head placement. And like was stated before, not a word of the cut block on Mario trying to nab the pick.

I don't recall a single instance of an opposing defender being injured by a cut block in the 5+ years Kubiak has been here.

The league addressed this by making it illegal to cut block a player that is engaged already.

Now the Texans are a dirty team :rolleyes:. According to that board we are a pathetic franchise, probably why they are so butt hurt about losing to us even if only pre-season. Which is funny coming from fans of a franchise that set the standard for exercising their right to futility in the NFL.

Saints get pushed around in one pre-season game and their fans get a "sand in the clam" attitude. Doubt there would have been a peep out of them if they would have won that game.

I imagine Carr_Bombed stirred up the nest over there too.

1. Quit acting like every single play, down, situation the entire ol, any blocking backs, te or wideouts instantly dive like Raiden on old Mortal Kombat at defenders.

2. Quit acting like people are having their careers ruined over it.

3. Quit acting like every - single - team but yours does it.

While we're on the subject of blocking, how bout workman Joel Dreesen seeking and DESTROYING linebackers with his blocks?!?! Dude has game if you notice, it's just not catching 20 yard passes like OD.

Quoted from SaintsReport board:

If it's legal, then our guys will be coached up to counter it. I personally don't agree with hitting guys in the knees, but if it's legal then we have to find a way to stop it. Houston has always had a chip on their shoulder towards us, and we should've been ready for them to play like they've actually been to the playoffs. SP and GW will have something for them in a month or so. This I know.

In my version of Dante's Inferno, there's a 10th ring reserved just for them. sAint's fans have suffered so long and hard, they earned some obnoxiousness in my opinion.
EDIT: I'm only about 30 miles from Pittsburgh right now and talking as much trash as a Texans fan can. That basically reduces me to the victory we had when we only had like 48 yds of offense, but I'm milking it for all I can. I'ma go broke if we lose our game to them!!!

That is what has been tough. Just nothing to hang your hat on (no Texas pun intended). I'm not a guy to trash another guy for wearing another jersey, but when they do that to me it woulld be nice if they, for once, gave props for sticking with my team.

that was painful to watch... props to the Texans on the performance

I think at least some of the frustration about the cut blocking stems from the injury that Franklin sustained - he's going to be a key front 7 cog and the MCL strain wasn't happy news. If he doesn't get injured and the DLine doesn't get manhandled, then this isn't a big issue.

after the hurting the D put on the '9ers last week, I think they looked awfully complacent whereas the Texans OLine looked like they wanted it more, and that's got nothing to do with cut blocking - hopefully the D has learned a lesson from this and they'll want some vindication when the teams meet up in the regular season

Wow, a win of a meaningless preseason game in which neither side purposely game planed and suddenly your team is relevant enough to come trolling our boards? Tell the other Texan trolls waiting for confirmation email to come back when the Texans become relevant, until then, see ya in week 3. Thanks for dropping by to beg for respect for your team, not an uncommon site here since we beat down so many teams!

Man, Saints fans sure have gotten big heads these days. I mean, how long did it take the Saints to become "relevant"? You'd think they are a dynasty with the way these boneheads talk. And to think, just a few years ago they were one the worst NFL teams ever.

In the year they won the Superbowl they took so many cheap shots at Bret Favre AFTER he had thrown the football it wasn't even funny and a couple of those were blind side hits at the knee. Those muff-huggas need to watch a few episodes of "My Name is Earl" and move on.

Post that up over there. Someone should also get a still-frame of Nicks cutting Mario.

Yeah, Saints fans leaving the stadium were mouthing off like crazy. At least with Cowpoke's and Steelers they have actually been consistant power houses.

Maybe the Steelers.............I can't remember that far back when the Cowpokes and power house was used in the same sentence by anyone other than Cowpokes fans.:tiphat:

I'm glad now the 7-9 Seahawks beat them in the playoffs last year.

Now that you mention that, I remember cheering for the Seahawks that game. :lol:

If only we had a Mod from the Saints board here to help us through this.

Carr pointed that out and the response from one
I'm not going to deny that the Saints use it on occasion. But it's not the basis of their run blocking technique. Notice in that picture the entire OL is on their feet blocking (except for C. Brown chasing Brooks Reed). The player you pointed out is a fullback or TE making an open field block. Nice try though.

You aren't going to win over there it seems, one is crying about the blocking scheme and how each man should man up on another.

I hope we kick the **** out of the saints.

The OP over there keeps stating you can't cut block on passing plays. Didn't the Jets cut block Mario on a 3 step drop that ESPN kept replaying over and over again, not to mention the one during the Saints game on the screen that nearly resulted in a Mario interception?

And then a guy chimes in at the end about how sad of a franchise we have because of no playoff appearances and championships when it took the Saints 20 years to have their first winning record/playoff appearance. They really do live in their own world over there

LOL this is truly golden

Exactly right. Houston always plays the Saints like it's their Superbowl, because that's all they've got. No championships, no playoff victories (for that matter, no playoff appearances). What a sad sad team.


LOL, when did any of us give a rat's a$$ about this meaningless game? :vincepalm:

Every team cut blocks. Just some do it more often than others. In order to throw a three step drop pass, the tackle and/or guard has to cut to quickly create that passing lane.

The Saints overall history is one of the saddest in the NFL. These "message board" fans must not have been around when the Aints were playing every Sunday year after year.

I think they went like 12 or 13 seasons before their first non-losing season (8-8), and nearly 20 years before their first playoff appearance.

They went 20 years without a winning season. They had two .500 seaons, iirc.

That they would turn into obnoxious Cowboy-lite fan is disappointing. I used to root for them as an NFC team, but many of their fans have turned me off.

Now, I'm rooting for the Cardinals as my NFC team. Go Kevin Kolb!

Yup. Although contrary to popular belief there was one 8-8 season before Bum Phillips did it. The coach was Dick Nolan.

It's just the message board folks that are full of douche.baggery. We had a great time last year and the folks were awesome to us.

They sure were. Every fan I talked to was very hospitable and a few even bought a round on the Plaza. I had a great time, (Thanks again JB!) though I didn't go to the Dungeon with the group. I felt a need for a steak and was pointed to Brennen's. One of the best I've had in my life!

The Saint's fans were great folks IMO.

The only reason it is even being brought up is I think some fans where flabbergasted at how badly the Saints did against the Texans running game. If Arian Foster and Ben Tate don't combine for like 150 yards in the first half we don't hear a word about cut blocking.

The Saints never won more than FIVE games until their 12th season.
