    Did anyone else see that nasty side hit on AJ's knee when he was planted? Looked pretty bad.

    Anyone worried about him?

    Did Kubiak say anything?

    I hope he's ok, but how is that hit not illegal? If AJ was a QB that would've been a penalty and a big time fine. The DB just went straight for his knees!

    I saw it and it kind of pissed me off, but AJ seemed to shake it off pretty quickly and that was that. I'm not saying anything was intentional, but I didn't care for the technique being as low as it was. I'll bet the knee is sore today though.

    It totally freaked me out when I saw it, as it looked even worse thanmany of the same shots that put QBs out of commission.

    Larry Fitz kept playing after his injury. Im hoping we dont get a bad surprise come monday

    AJ's a big dude, and this is football. The hit didn't upset me one bit.

    Upset me a little that Kubiak didn't take him out of the game immediately.

    I don't see the problem.

    Most coach's preseason schedule is about the same:

    Game 1 starters play a few series (10-15 snaps)
    Game 2 starters play most of the first half (20-30 snaps)
    Game 3 starters play into the third quarter
    Game 4 starters generally play a series or not at all

    The Saints had pro bowlers and all pros out there for most of the first half. Maybe Payton needs a lesson in coaching 101. Hell they had Greer (their #1 corner) out there in the 3rd when I stopped watching.

    The Texans' Offense barely got any snaps due to turnovers. You can't go only by time.

    The Texans played the 1st string everything the entire 1st half.

    Whats your point? They should have taken it easy on the Texans. I thought they did. The Saints had there 2nd string in there early in the 2nd quarter. They kicked the crap out of the Texans.

    They pulled Brees early. Most of their starters continued to play.

    I'm trying to understand your reasons and mentality for posting here so much.

    Are you one of those people who loves to talk trash and harass people? Because that's what it feels like.

    I just put you on my ignore list because every damn post by you is some junior-high level trash talk that says how bad we are. We aren't THAT bad, but you seem to try and make it so.

    I have dealt with enough of your stoopidity and you're gone from my viewing experience. I suggest other people do this as well. :worldpeace:

    If I'm not mistaken, sans Drew Brees, the Saints were still playing most of their first string/normal rotation players...

    I am not sure, but I specifically remember Bush being in and Chase throwing a pass to Colston...

    That hit looked really nasty. I was worried that Andre was gonna miss some time.

    Rubbish. There is no set standard. You also need to realize that it may take one team longer to ge those 20 - 30 snaps. These things don't line up nicely with quarters. It also depends on if the coach wants to see some success or not.

    Add that to the fact that the Saints played their 3rd string QB most of the game.

    Trash Talk? Where is trash talk? Do you even know what Trash Talk is? Really? I may be negative, but I am not trash talking.

    Good GP. Put me on ignore. You have no clue what you are talking about.

    If you cant handle both sides of the coin then ignore is the place for me.
