    Playing Saints 1st game a good thing???

    Hey,my 1st post! I was thinking about the Saints in the 1st game.Is it really our 1st choice to start the season? Let's face it, last season, the Saints offense was by far the best in the NFL. They'll be at home.The crowd will be pumped and Farve may not be back.
    As far as Allen and the rest of the DL wanting to put some "remember me" hits on Brees, why didn't they didn't do it the last time? Maybe our DL isn't as good as we have been led to believe.Dunno.Just my thoughts.

    I'm not overly worried about it. I don't think we'll be pressured like we were last game. Last time was the playoffs, do or die for the saints, and they were in do mode. I don't see Favre getting pummeled this game like he did last.

    Having said that, its no walk in the park though. A win in week 1 is a great way to start the season fired up.

    Yes it is a good idea so the fraud Saints can start 0-1 and we can break Brees's back, ending his season and the Saints chances to ever be a good team again.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I want Favre and the Vikings to pull a "The Longest Yard" on the first couple of plays and let a couple of Saints through the line untouched and have Brett nail them square between the eyes with a fastball.

    Bad karma.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a couple of "remember me" hits put on Brees - but I don't want to take it to an extreme.

    If you believe in Karma, then the Saints will get theirs without the Vikings needing to try, based upon the NFC Championship stuff.

    I guess I need a good shot of homerism because nothing I have seen from New Orleans makes me think it'll be an easy win. What if it's a T-Jack standing under center for the Viks?Then, we're 0-1.

    Jackson would mop the floor with the Saints.

    No such thing as a bad matchup in week 1.

    NO has a lot more to lose in this game than the Vikes. If we go in and mop up the place with the Saints, they will be labeled as a one year wonder and struggle to get their swagger going. If we lose, we lose to the SB winners at their place in week one. Just a measuring stick for us, nothing more.

    I'm glad we're starting out the season in style.

    Well, Brees is going to be on the cover of Madden 11, and our DL is pissed.

    My money is on Brees gets both of his legs broken, forced to retire, and JA walks over to Gregg Williams and spits on him after the game.
