    Got back late from the game. It was incredibly loud and intimidating! The Dome and Saints fans are worth an easily 3 - 5 points or more by themselves in a playoff game IMHO.

    Rankins being injured is a huge blow for the defense as he became a sack machine and run stuffer this year for us from his DT position.
    That said, we can take beat the Rams with a quick start on offense next week and our D is better vs. theirs.

    Photo on Facebook making the rounds of post game prayer, players from both teams kneeling/praying together. Front and center in that photo...#49 of the Eagles, our very own Boston Scott.

    Love the NFL or hate it - the one thing you have to admit is that they have the best play-off sit up there is

    Perfect number

    Perfect framework

    Perfect timing

    All with a very meaningful regular season with divisional play (I know some would rather have top 6 regardless of division)

    Over and done with championship in basically one month

    Agreed. I know there is talk of going to 8 for FBS, but 12 might be the magic number. Give out 4 byes to reward strength of schedule and keep the P5s happy. Take the top 8 conference champs and award 4 at large selections. First two rounds at home of higher seeds, and semifinal and final at a bowl site.

    So very true.

    And at least in the games I've seen, all of the players and staff of both teams are standing during the National Anthem.

    That's the interesting thing about the Chief's defense. They give up 27 points on the road but just 17 at home.

    Geaux Saints!
    Because the Saints won the game the missed calls and the phantom calls were pushed to the backburner. But head referee Carl Cheffers really had a bad night. Two of the holding calls on the Saints - one on Andrus Peat where Fletcher Cox bull rushed him to the ground and then fell on top of him- and the other on Max Unger, where the d lineman fell to the ground while being blocked - were both phantom calls. The other was the hand to Brees' face on that last drive of the first half. A correct call would have set the Saints up for a possible TD just before the half. They settled for 3.

    There is speculation floating around that maybe Cheffers was "compensating" after this article was published. It correctly pointed out that the Saints are 11-1 when Cheffers calls a game.

    I hope the refs do a great job...and may the best team win. But, if the refs have an influence on the outcome, I hope that favors the Saints. What I expect is the Saints to get screwed again. It's not just the calls made, it's also the calls not made that cause the refs to influence an outcome.

    I know this, we fans can get all upset and rant & rave before, during and after the game about the refs, but the players can't let that bother them. You see games when the players start worrying about the refs, arguing every call, and lose focus on their jobs. That gets you beat.

    And this petition can cause the refs to over-compensate just so they prove the Rams' fans wrong. Seen that happen before too.
