  1. No need. I'm off to bed, to wait for Santa to bring a playoff berth. Oh, wait....we've already got one of those, huh? Tell you what...if Santa brings us another one in the morning, maybe we'll give to you guys. You know...in the spirit of the season and sharing with the less fortunate and all.
  2. That "class" being the one composed of teams with NFL championships? A class for which the Falcons find themselves conspicuously absent from the student rolls...
  3. LOL You guys are so predictable, so easy, and most of all, so **** touchy with the whole inferiority complex thing. BTW, it was seven seasons ago. Is that more recent than never?
  4. No, but I've been to Atlanta and have seen what a waste of space an empty trophy case looks like.
  5. Oh...looking at the clock here in the central time zone, I see that I am remiss. Merry Christmas, all. Hope you all have a wonderful day and rest of the week.
  6. Apparently you don't speak "championship" either...but we'll be happy to translate for you. LOL
  7. BTW, we all were required to set our cellphones to "Falcons" setting on the way into the Dome. "No ring."
  8. Hey, you think Ryan and Jones or anyone else stopped off at the Saints facility on the way to the airport? You know, to see what a Lombardi trophy looks like close up? LOL
  9. Odd that the league would wait four years to institute that nefarious plan, but whatever.
  10. Ten large, I think. And correct, the fine was technically for running onto the field after they wouldn't grant his time out request, but that was just the more egregious offense such that they didn't have to issue a fine for the comments themselves.
  11. BTW......absolutely HATE the all-black uniforms. Looks like a bunch of overweight ballerinas running around in leotards. OTOH, I LOVE our white-on-white color rush togs we wore for the last game...and feel sorry for you guys and most of the other teams in the league who end up having to wear red/red, or green/green (UGH!!), etc. I'd actually love to see that white-jersey, gold-number top and those sweetly-striped pants as one of our regular uniforms.
  12. I would say you probably shouldn't count on nine first downs by penalty this time, but you never know...
  13. Also, there's always a big difference in play for a team when they know going through the week that a particular weapon won't be playing and can create a game plan based on that (your game last week without Coleman) as opposed to a game where the expected-to-be-heavily-involved weapon is lost a few plays in (our game against you without Kamara). You can often look "mundane" when you're scrapping 50% of your game plan partway into the first drive.
  14. For you guys? I'd suggest you go with the least-ripped overalls, your dress flannel shirt, and maybe the Red Man cap....
  15. Nine first downs by penalty will sort of do that. Oh, and come back to this board after a Falcons loss for a graduate-level course on whining and conspiracy theories. LOL
  16. Formula: Knock out 7 starters by injury, including most explosive offensive weapon; Gain 10 first downs by penalty; Produce last-second interception in end zone to prevent winning TD or chance at chip shot tying FG; And do it all on road rather than at home. Simple. Victory!
  17. Well, I can't argue with the logic. CLEARLY there's no diversity among the New Orleans Saints fan base....
  18. And all meant in good clean fun. If it makes you feel any better, you CLEARLY have us beaten in MLB success.....
  19. Just expressing solidarity with a fellow NFL Championship winner......
  20. LOL.....Again....Come see a trophy up close and personal. In New Orleans. LOL
  21. Yeah, NASCAR's ratings have been down this year by an even higher percentage than those of the NFL. Wanna explain how the whole "I'm so offended by these people" snowflakes are killing THOSE ratings? Seriously...the easily offended types wanna feel that whatever they think is the most important and impactful thing in the world at that moment, but really, TV ratings have been down for just about ALL sports over the past season or two, and in particular this season. Unless Billy Joe Cowpatty has been kneeling before he gets into his car, I'm gonna call BS on the "we're killing the NFL ratings with our righteous outrage!" stuff.
  22. Oh, man.....as a Saints fan, I'm SO sorry I didn't get to be the first one to post this....LOL As for the leak itself..at least it took something the magnitude of Katrina to get ours to leak. Of course, then it really, REALLY leaked.
  23. "What team has a rabid fanbase that hasn't won the Super Bowl? Winning championships changes everything with fans" 2014 marks the ninth consecutive season ticket sellout of the Mercedes Benz Superdome. If you're good at math, you can calculate that the streak began with the 2006 season...three seasons before the Super Bowl win at the end of the 2009 season, and coming off a 3-13, no-home-games season. Sure, there were extenuating circumstances leading up to the first season sellout (communal rebirth after the horrors of Katrina had put the very future of the franchise if not the city itself in question, etc.) but those positive factors making the ticket sales more likely were easily more than balanced out by many negative factors (loss of the very concept of "disposable wealth" for so many NOLA area residents, not to mention the loss of so many NOLA residents themselves). Post-Katrina, NOLA has had probably it's largest influx of new residents, originally from other parts of the country, that it has had since the oil boom of the Sixties. We're not talking Atlanta-levels of new residents, but there is a much higher percentage now of New Orleanians who were born elsewhere than there had been for at least fifty years. And that's one of the points-they look at themselves as "New Orleanians". The new residents show all evidence of having come here specifically to be "New Orleanians", embracing everything (or at least everything they think, bless 'em) it means to be a "new native". One can easily get the impression that many Atlanta residents, especially those who are transplants, see themselves less as "Atlanteans" and more as "people who happen to be living in Atlanta". To close...New Orleans, metro population 1.2 million and median household income $38,880, nine straight seasons of selling every available seat in the stadium on a season ticket basis; Atlanta, metro population 6.1 million and median household income $55,733...well, what you see in the Georgia Dome on Sundays. Make of it what you will.
