    If you detect a bit of confidence in Saints fans, this is why

    You know what I think, none of these past statistics have any impact on the game on Monday night. I will refer to the statistic brought up by the announcers on Fox heading against the Falcons last Sunday. The statistic was that the Falcons were 43-1 when they were ahead entering the 4th quarter in the Mike Smith era. Guess what, they are now 43-2! Statistics are irrelevant when it comes to a future match up, both teams have a chance to win the game. As the saying goes, "Any Given Sunday", or in this case "Any Given Monday".

    The past means nothing. Both teams are different from last season.

    We are the streak busters.The colts had a 10-1 record at home and we beat them,the falcons were 43-1 when leading and we beat them.

    Bring on the aints

    Just don't be shocked when Brees goes off for like 350 yds 5 TD

    you guys have a good team. but it's the wrong place at the wrong time.

    The game was tied entering the 4th quarter.

    On topic, someone is going to expose that Saints defense for the mediocre at best pile that it is. Hope it's us.

    nice

    I'd love to see another Brees vs Manning superbowl. win #2

    btw, why am I seeing so many Brees - Manning comparisons around here?? you would think this was a Denver fan forum


    I would like Brees to avoid that little bastard for sure. I think he has like 2 picks in 5 games

    Just like Andre Luck's 4th quarter comeback drives and being so good at home and like 9-1 in close game and yada yada yada..... it means nothing.

    I hate it when people do this, bring up stats that have no bearing on games. A lot of Vegas "odds-makers" do this too. Ok I'll pull some stats outta my a@3 too. The Dolphins have never lost to the Saints in September. The Dolphins are undefeated against the Saints on MNF. The Dolphins haven't lost to the Saints at the Superdome in the last 13 years. Stats can be stacked up all day long depending on which side you're trying to prove. ESPN is terrible at trying to prove their point this way. Let it go.

    And how many times the Saints beat Falcons with Grimes since Brees came to New Orleans? 10-2. Yeah now sit down and pay attention.

    I love our team as much as anyone but lets not guarantee a victory over an excellent team.
    Don't be an uber homer douche.

    oh so we are bringing up things that don't matter to the actual game? Cool! Dolphins haven't lost since I moved. So pretty much game over for the Saints. Sucks to suck.

    LOL! Look at my post history, and you'll see that i'm the last person that should be called homer. Or heck, just ask some of the hard-working mods that have suspended me over the years. Anyway, a fan of a rival team is here looking for banter, and I was bored at work, so I decided to fire back. Sue me.

    :lol:

    Every time you think fans of our opponents can't top it there is another bunch popping up. At this rate the Saints fans approach the level of Jets fans rather quickly. :lol:

    I agree but, you can easily dismantle those stats compared to the other ones thrown out. I mean we have played the saints 3 times in the last 14 years. Probably never on monday night, probably not in september, oh and the saints used to suck.

    Its funny because I'm old enough to remember the Archie Manning days and the days of the Aints, when fans would wear paper bags on their heads. These Saints fans don't have a long winning tradition to brag about. They are the nouveau riche of the NFL. Graceless in victory, ugly in defeat.

    I know the Saints are a good team these days but man to see the audacity their fanbase has now is kinda ridiculous.The fans for the Saints seem to come in here with no knowledge whatsoever of this years Dolphins and throw all these Saints stats out like we should be afraid as fans... Man is it Monday yet?

    Thought I'd bring some reasoning to this discussion. The list and teams look impressive but if you really break it down it's not as good as it seems as about 50% of the games were against non quality teams or teams playing very poorly at the time.

    2012 Eagles - finished 4-12 (not a quality win)
    2012 Chargers - finished 7-9 (not a quality win)
    2011 Lions - wildcard round of playoffs (quality win although 2nd time playing them at home this year)
    2011 Falcons - playoff team (quality win)
    2011 Giants - Giants were in the mist of the 3rd of a 4 game losing streak and playing like crap, some thinking Coughlin would loose his job (not a quality win)
    2011 Colts - finished 2-14 without Manning (non quality win)
    2011 Lions - playoff team (quality win)
    2010 Steelers - playoff team (quality win)
    2010 Vikings - finished 6-10 (not a quality win)
    2009 Vikings - NFC Championship (quality win although most say the refs blew a 3rd down roughing the passer call when Favre was high lowed, brady rule, without the ball in his hand, 15 more yards would have made a big difference in the game and probably not sent it into overtime which the Saints won in)
    2009 Cowboys - Playoff team (quality win)
    2009 Patriots - Playoff Team (quality win)
    2009 Falcons - 9-7 (not a quality win vs a lesser talented Falcons team)
    2008 Packers - Finished 6-10 (not a quality win)

    There is no question that Payton, Brees & Co. are going to put up a very strong offense. With a Ryan coaching their defense, you know they'll have all the insight on us they want. Their record at home is great and in prime time is impeccable. I'd say the best thing we have going for us is that nobody is giving us a chance. We're the underdogs. Maybe a twinge of overconfidence early and panic late is just the recipe to knocking them off that perch. ;)

    obviously, because they were losses and selective memory blocks those out
