New Orleans Saints Have Many Weapons
That's right, we have something to say!
Our guys are on their way to something great, and we are right there on the sidelines cheering them on. The view we have from week to week far surpasses anything you see on TV—or even from your seat if you are at the game.
But it’s the sounds we hear that really sends chills down our spines. The thunderous clash of shoulder pads is only silenced by the unmistakable roar of the crowd when our boys sack a quarterback.
Oh, the Ground View
Just ask Mr. Warner.
This was his view quite a bit last weekend.
Now, Brett, you know the city has supported you many times through many playoffs. We love our Kiln, Miss., quarterback—just not as much as we love our Drew Brees.
Let's face it, we cheered for you as you won Super Bowl XXXI here on our ground—but this Sunday, you are just another quarterback of the opposing team.
Ask Eli how his return to the Dome went.
Darren Sharper Can Shake, Rattle and Roll
I am sure Brett and his Vikings will launch an aerial attack. Let's get real: He isn't a 40-year-old NFL starting quarterback for nothing.
But I thought Vikings were known for attacking by sea.
Either way, our backfield's in motion, and the Domeland Defense will be waiting.
Darren, just because you have a record-setting nine interceptions so far this year, that doesn't make a Saintsation. You have to try out in April—just like the rest of us.
But thanks for showcasing our moves.
Better Bring Your Earplugs
Oh, Coach Childress...This was not a good move. You really have provoked the Who Dat Nation beyond what you intended, I'm sure.
It is a good thing that you had your players fitted this past week with special earplugs. They’re gonna need them.
Here's a breakdown for those who want to know more:
• 60 decibels: Normal conversation
• 70 decibels: Vacuum cleaner
• 80 decibels: A crying baby or a freight train
• 85 decibels: Busy city traffic
• 90 decibels: A diesel truck or a hair dryer
Now here is where the Superdome noise level generally sits:
• 100 decibels: Motorcycle, chain saw
• 115 decibels: A rock concert
• 120 decibels: A thunderclap, a jackhammer
FYI: When the Patriots took the field for that Monday Night Football game, the fans hit 99 decibels with their boos—and that was before kickoff.
By the fourth quarter, it was peaking at 119 decibels.
Percy Harvin may want to stay away if he is already having migraines.
That's Not Going to Help
This is not the first time Favre has faced a Gregg Williams defense.
Truth is, he has seen his defense five times.
What he did have to say about Coach Williams’ unit was that it is ever changing: "Even if it's Cover Two, it's how they get to it that gets you."
Brett's numbers for those five games: six touchdowns to eight interceptions.
Even saying that he was always a Saints fan won't stop Darren Sharper, Jonathan Vilma or the rest of Coach Williams’ defense from marching in.
The Saints are coming!
Yes, Reggie is back.
He never really left—just because he wasn't making big plays didn't mean he was gone.
He is and will always be a threat whenever the ball is in his hands.
He is just as happy scoring touchdowns on special teams as he is on offense. What can we say other than Reggie is multi-talented. And he can fly too!
According to word out of Minnesota, they will try not punt to him. No problem; we have many other ways to score.
And here is yet another way.
Darnell Dinkins...Who Dat?
Just another one of our 19 players that have scored a touchdown for the Saints during this magical season.
It is understandable if many are unfamiliar with these fellas: Eight of those 19 players were undrafted.
Now compare that to Peyton Manning and his rookies. I'd say Brees has done more with less.
The Saints have an explosive offense with many ways to score. If you couple that with a defense that can cause turnovers, the Saints are far from one-dimensional.
We have Tom Benson to thank for that...and before I forget, we have one more for you!
Rita and Her Boys Of Black and Gold
This is the most secret of weapons that will no longer be a secret.
Meet Rita Benson LeBlanc, owner and executive vice president of the New Orleans Saints. Now, I have to ask: Don't you wish your owner was hot like her? She is a force to be reckoned with as she continues her journey to the top.
A few months ago, this beautiful lady donated a fee to jump off of a perfectly good building—all for a Special Olympics fundraiser. Her football knowledge is secondary only to her beauty and grace.
This Southern Belle is supportive of her team and city. We all say: "Bless You and your boys, Rita."
You are making it happen, and we will support you at 5:30 p.m. Sunday on our way to Miami.
