    Every team has injuries. But teams that are this banged up generally don't make the Super Bowl or in the Saints case were a blown call away from the Super Bowl. One of the things that's come out of New Orleans since the game has been the fact the Saints had to ditch a large part of their run game when Josh Hill was injured. Without Hill or Ben Watson the Saints were left without a blocking TE.
    I know about the Saints' injuries. I follow them. I watch that show on CST "Saints Tonight" with all the inside scoop, the interviews, the real news from camp, etc... First, I haven't heard anyone connected to the team, not Payton, not Brees, not anyone, use the injury list as an excuse. That's because they know that's all it would be...excuses.

    Josh Hill was lost early in the 1st qtr thanks to a helmet to helmet hit, one of several the Rams got away with. So, due to NFL protocols, he had to be sent off. The Rams commit an illegal hit and it's the Saints who got "penalized" for it...losing Hill. And not having Watson was just plain old bad luck...appendicitis!? R U kidding me!? I can just see old Ben telling his grandkids about it someday...had to miss the championship game for medical reasons. Oh? ya had a knee injury, grandpa? Nope! bad appendix!

    Still, the Saints were able to put 11 players on the field every play. Professional...well-paid, and assumingly coached players. And none of the injury news excuses Brees' play.

    It is what it is (or was). It's over now.

    Last year we had to live with the "Miracle in Minnysoda." This year it's a non-call by a former Rams' player and 4 of the crew who live in L.A.. This too shall pass.

    That sounds pretty silly.

    Blah, blah, blah. Some of you guys are the worst losers I've ever seen.

    Oh...so we're now going to listen to one of the world's greatest cheaters tell us someone else is cheating?

    That article just makes Eric Dickerson sound like a whiny, little, has been. Have you forgotten that Dickerson himself, was one of the worst cheaters of all time in college? He and his school (SMU) cheated so bad in college, his school ended up suffering the death penalty in 1987 & 1988. And make no mistake, Dickerson and Craig James --a/k/a the Pony Express-- were right in the middle of it. Does that sound like someone we should really listen to about being cheated? LOL!!

    I am NO Patriots fan. Never have been. Not by a long shot. But even my own "hatred" of the Pats has nothing to do with spy gate, illegal walk-thru filming or under-inflated footballs. (It's always something, isn't it?) Most of that stuff is just silly, nonsense, by jealous people that are simply tired of losing to 'em. I get it. But people hate 'em, because they win too much, not because of any of that other nonsense. It's the same syndrome the Dallas Cowboys, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the New York Yankees and John Wooden's UCLA Bruins had to face at one time or another in their sports history. Nick Saban's Alabama program is starting to feel the same blow back. A few weeks ago, I heard a lot of people say they were cheering for Clemson to beat Alabama in the NC game, because they were tired of BAMA winning all the time.

    People just don't like it when you win too much.

    The Patriots have the longest active consecutive NFL playoff appearance streak, at 10. The Pats have now made it to 11 Super Bowls, including this years. Frankly, that record makes the rest of the league look like a bunch of goobers & donkey's who can't keep up with the game.

    National media now beginning to pick up on a story that's been a mostly local story in and around New Orleans for the past week.

    Four NFC Championship Game officials reside in southern California:

    I think we have to look no further than the sports book offering credits on the game...

    Without intergrity in gambling/books there is no market

    I think that says all that needs to be said about the call and the outcome of the game

    It's a sad state of affairs when a sports books has more morality than the league and it's office

There were bad calls in that game that favored both teams. There are bad calls in every game that favor both teams. Yeah, the no call was terrible, but you can't put yourself in a position where a call like that matters.

    Re: NFL Playoff Picture

    Brees got popped hard in the helmet/facemask twice in the Rams' game..no call either time. Would it have mattered? No one can know for sure, but since both of those plays would have given the Saints a 1st down on drives that petered out...maybe.

    That no-call, by any estimation, was one of the most egregious mess-ups in NFL reffing history (should have left it at "effing" history). Even the guilty party, the Rams' DB, admitted after the game he knew he had been beat and didn't want to give up an easy, walk-in touchdown. So he deliberately took out Lewis.

    Still, as I point out to any who will listen. The Saints kicked a FG and took the lead 23-20 with 1:40 left, and couldn't hold the Rams from scoring. Then the Saints won the toss in OT and had a chance to win it, but Brees threw the INT. And yes, there were some missed calls that went both ways, although I think any fair-minded observers would agree the Saints got the short end of that stick too. Everyone knew it was gonna be a close, tough game, and when that's the case, you can always go back to just ONE PLAY and say, change that one, and you change the outcome.

    Water under the bridge now...

    Not part of the boycott movement. I am a football fan first, and this is the last football game for 7 months. Ugh!
