  • Those of you wanting to see a little early view of the Saints boards, here's a good one. This is what some Saints fans expect for the remainder of their season. Obviously, many of them have little knowledge of our team. This thread may be worthy of an invasion of 'Hawks fans... :twisted:

    Enemy Forum post will be up on Friday after the Saints play the Falcons Thursday night. GO FALCONS!!!

  • Yeah, I didn't see anything crazy. They're confident in their team and they see Carolina as a bigger threat than Seattle for the most part. They are familiar w/ Carolina and that makes sense.

    As you said, they probably aren't aware of what our team has dealt with while going 9-1 (not counting Sunday because we were actually healthy). I'm fine with that. I do believe that they'll feel differently after their trip to SEA.

    If they think that Carolina is tough....wait until they come to Seattle!

  • You would think by now EVERY NFL team's fanbase would know about Seattle being the most intimidating and difficult place to play in the entire league unless they are living under a rock.

    Monkey stomp...sounds like a plan to me.

    BTW, I realize that we're all aware of this but, they sound no more confident in their team, at their fan forum, than we do in ours.
    Just saying, of course the Saints fans believe they can beat us. Sure they're delusional, but that's part of being a fan. All objectivity gets pushed aside in fandom.

  • For the most part they seem cool they care about Carolina which is understandable. They do have a couple glaring holes of knowledge about the Seahawks though.


    1. Percy Harvin being full go.

    2. And Graham likely being matched up with Sherman more often then not if for some reason Kam forgot how to cover TE's of his ilk (Vernon Davis).

    3. We rule MNF.

    Regardless it's going to be an awesome game right up there with Denver's next two games, our tilt with San Francisco, and their matchups with Carolina all upcoming.

    I have met a few Saints fans. They know intellectually, but deep down, I really don't think they really understand just how intimidating and difficult it is to play as a visitor in the Clink. Unless you experience it for yourself, it's hard to fathom. TV doesn't do it justice.

    Likewise, a lot of Saints fans will readily (if reluctantly) agree that the Saints don't do well outside a dome, but from my experience, they really don't understand what a huge difference it makes for the Saints. The stats are there, but I don't think most understand what the stats say instinctively.

    In short, I think part of it is denial.

  • Wonder if they've thought about how they fared against the Niners vs how the Hawks did?

    Both teams have played the Niners at home, so there should've been plenty of HFA for each.

    At Clink: 29-3 Hawks
    At Dome: 23-20 Saints (leaving aside the understandable, but bad call on Brooks' sack)


    Either the Hawks have a better HFA, are a better team, or both.
    Also, the Hawks have improved since then.

  • The Saints fans would argue that football isn't transitive and that the Saints merely had a bad day and that the Niners always seem to have their number (and there is some truth to it). Like I said, I think most of it is a combination of ignorance and denial.

    That's why I said they seem cool. They are very confident but no more than us really and the vast majority are in no way cocky like Pittsburgh, San Francisco, or Washington fans in my opinion.

    I'm feeling good about it but the saints are fairly solid.
    If I was forced to pick 3 teams that stood a chance of beating us at home, I think the saints would make the list.

    Meh. They're way sick of that one, plus it was a long time ago. We're a much different team now. Same with them.

  • Was just there and registered. They are quite humble, for the most part. Way different experience than I expected. It was refreshing actually, compared to my 2 weeks of trolling the Whiners' forums. Dont know too many Saints fans down here in Tampa, but if their forum is any indication of average Saints fans, I'm impressed.

    really good poll question there.... which current NFL team do we think could come in here and win?

    I'm just not sure. you'd want to say Denver (maybe) then you watch them get pummeled by Indy. Carolina? I like our D against Cam. 9ers.... nope. Saints... maybe, but they (Brees) clearly struggle (to a point) outside of their dome.

    tough question really. Detroit kind of scares me in the playoffs (should they make it)

    No doubt Vegas will put this line at Seahawks -3 or so. It might start at a -4 to get New Orleans fans betting then move to -2.5 or possibly closer to -1.5.

  • I was reading (thanks for the link) and for the most part the Saints fanbase seems knowledgable. Yes a lot of those people think their team is ready to come to Clink and whip our ass. I cant blame them for thinking this. They have a great coach and qb ,and all is possible if you have this. They are better than most teams we will face this year.

    I don't see this happening. Were too damn good this year. We just now have our starting o-line and #11.


    Not trying to be a jerk , I don't see anyone coming to Seattle and leaving with a win.

    Are you referring to the crowd noise or to the Seahawks team that gave up 36 points to Brees and won because Matt Hasselbeck knew how to pick on a strong safety having a bad day? This isn't the 2010 team anymore.

    ...this is BETTER. :twisted:

    I hope the Saints are looking past us the same way their fans are.

    No doubt? I completely disagree. I think the line will end at around Seattle -5 or 6.
