Nice win yesterday over the Panthers. Good to be 3-0 in division. Probably need to run the table to get a bye.


I don't think that will even happen because it will take 2 Minnesota losses... that's not going to happen

I think Minnesota will probably lose 2 more, but that also assumes the saints go undefeated

And now I'm mad about officiating all over again. Thursday night football is garbage and I hope the NFLPA can find some leverage in doing something about it.

Last night had nothing on this past Monday's Steelers/Bengals game. It seems like the more they try to regulate out the injurious hits, the more of them occur.

Why wasn't Deion Jones ejected for a hitting Kamara in the head? Not even a flag for roughness. Reminded me of the hit on Pierre Thomas in that playoff game with the 49ers. Jones was clearly looking to knock Kamara out of the game. Kamara was held up and in the process of going down. Of course all the LSU types are excusing it.

9 first downs by penalty to zero. There's your game. Give the Saints Kamara throughout and just three FD's by penalty and they win that game by two touchdowns.

Quite a few of those types aren't. I didn't think it was intentional.

They need to start ejecting players for targeting along with a 1 game suspension. That will put an end to it.

I disagree. Kamara was held up and Jones was going in for the knockout blow.

No it won't. Targeting in CFP is a crap rule badly enforced. It should be done away with in college, forget about bringing it to the pros. I say that knowing that it's coming.

Agree on all accounts. It’s a mini death penalty and it has to be so egregious that unless someone is knocked unconscious and being carted off, no zebra wants to be second guessed.

That hit wasn't against any rules as Kamara had caught the ball and ran and therefore wasn't defenseless.

Yeah, we're still ticked off. We're also still going to the playoffs.

Pretty sure spearing a player on the side of his head is against the rules.

The Bengals /Steelers game wasn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. There were two bad hits in the game (Schuster and Iloka). Schuster wasn't suspended for the hit so much as for the taunting and lack of caring (kind of proving he wanted to hurt him). Golden Tate did the exact same thing a few years ago (minus the taunting) and got nothing. The Iloka hit was a suspension but reversed. Now there were other hard hits on the game but were all pretty much legal. The hit by Shazier was his own fault. He clearly lead and launched with his helmet. He was trying to make a big hit and did it wrong. Unfortunately he is the one paying for it. It wasn't a dirty hit by a Bengal that injured him, it was a dirty hit by him.

Now, don't get me started on the poor officiating in that game. It sounds like the NO/Atlanta game was just as bad.

I think technically, mlw is right, althought that is the problem, the interpretation varies too much. I would not call that a penalty, but Rankins roughing the passer on Ryan that allowed them to score their first TD was an absolute joke. If you're going to call that, then the Kamara hit should have been as well. That being said, Brees has had more than his share of "soft" calls over the years too.

While the Saints can still win the NFL South, the Vikes have the ultimate mental advantage. If they do win the NFC advantage, they will also have the advantage of the SB bring played at their home field in Minny.

Look, he's done well, I get it, but you'd put your money on Case Keenum taking his team to the SB? No way. There's still no one I'd trust among the NFC leaders right now more than #9 wearing black and gold. Hopefully, injuries won't derail a run.
