    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 shit before, and it's just that, bullshit. 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 bullshit 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.

    Sounds like the sort of griping fans do when they got their azz kicked.

    That makes me happy. :spin:

    Good post though. I'll have to check them again later tonight and see if they replied. I'm tempted to get a login and go ahead and start some shit before the regular season game, but I think I'll hold off for now.

    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.
