Saints stuck in Seattle after plane breaks down

A short week just became shorter and a terrible night got worse Monday for the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints' plane broke down, and the team was having trouble finding a hotel following its demoralizing 34-7 road loss to the Seattle Seahawks, NFL Media's Amber Theoharis reported late Monday.

Specific details were not readily available and it is unknown when the Saints will return home on Tuesday, ESPN.com's Mike Triplett reported.

The Saints (9-3) already were facing a difficult assignment against the Carolina Panthers (9-3) on a short week with the NFC South lead on the line Sunday. That week just got a day shorter.

After the nightmare performance, in which Drew Brees threw for just 147 yards -- his lowest output in a complete game since 2006 -- the Saints get the prize of facing a surging Panthers team, winners of eight straight games.

The Saints struggled to stop the Seahawks' pass rush on Monday and now face another ferocious front seven. Expect a lot of mid-air film sessions to be taking place whenever the Saints are able to hit the friendly skies.

Did they paint a goal line on the runway?

They did tell brees, "you must be this tall in order to fly (6'0")". "and most meet a qouta of throwing more then 150 yards".

Hey, sometimes chit happens. I'm just surprised it happened to the Saints and not the BUCS or Falcons.

For both teams this would just be another day at the office, more so for the BUCS than anyone.rolleyes.gif

im sure mike smith prefers the team to only travel by train.
