Remains to be seen how well Pete Carroll does when his aren't the only professional players on the field.

All you need to know is:

The Saints make history again by being the first home Superbowl team!

Bounty? I got your bounty gate!

Looks like the NFL wants to settle with Vilma. What dont they want the public to know about the sham they put on the Saints?

Goodell and the NFL want an 18 game season to make more money.

Picking on the Saints is just one step in the process of pussifing the game to the point players can play the 18.

Why New Orleans when it's all over the league? Small market.

I was taught to take the opposing players out as a freshman in high school as was everybody else on the team.


Quote:
Most of the players who were the targets of questionable hits by the Saints, including Favre and Warner, claimed the bounties were merely part of the game. However, several former players interviewed by Sports Illustrated said that while payments for good hits and sacks were indeed considered part of the game, bounties for intentionally injuring opponents violated an unwritten code.
However on July 26, 2012 Jonathan Vilma and seven witnesses from the Saints testified in front of a federal judge in New Orleans that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell got his facts wrong in the bounty scandal."Everybody was sworn in under oath in front of a judge with the risk of perjury and jail time if we were lying, and categorically denied there was a bounty," Vilma said in a text message to ESPN's Ed Werder. "Seven people testified, 2 sworn affidavits (one by Drew Brees) all saying the same thing. I ask that you and ESPN report the facts. No more bias or b.s. or hearsay. I gave you facts that you can report if so choose."
Tulane University Sports Law Program Director Gabe Feldman (who attended the hearing in court) said, "Clearly the judge, by her questions, indicated she thinks Goodell overstepped his authority, and this case was always going to be about if he executed his power fairly... The NFL's retort is that with all due deference, you don't get to second guess (commissioner Roger Goodell). Judges only have limited jurisdiction over arbitration issues."
Fuck Goodell.

That's just hearsay.

Who cares? They haven't won a Super Bowl since the 2004 season. A lot of help that stellar offense is doing. You gotta have a defense to win it all. Doesn't need to be a stellar defense but you better have one that knows WTF it is doing.

I say you can win a Super Bowl with a so so offense and stellar defense. Giants did it twice...and some would argue four times. However, the last two did not have a defense that compared to the old chin rattlers.

Hell of a game last night between Dallas and Oakland.

You can tell it's a boring game when Raider fans don't even care enough to stab anyone.

They beat the Saints in the first round of the playoffs a couple of years ago. Granted, they got home field with a losing record, but I think all of the Saints' players are, in fact, paid...

I'd have to stab myself if I did that.

Looks like the Pat's may be signing olympic sprinter Demps.

http://tracking.si.com/2012/08/17/olympic-sprinter-jeff-demps-patriots/?sct=nfl_t2_a5

Would be a nice add to stretch the field a bit for the TE's.
