Ray Edwards says he would have sought revenge for Favre

Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards says he didn’t know that the Saints were pounding quarterback Brett Favre during the NFC title game. 

And Edwards says that, if he had known, he would have done something about it.

“Taking those hit that he took [against New Orleans] I wish I would
have known that they did that because I don’t really watch the
offense,” Edwards told Paul Allen and Paul Charchian of KFAN on Friday, per Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  “I would have sure done the same thing to [Saints quarterback Drew] Brees
because that wasn’t right.”

Edwards’ position marks a dramatic change in his attitude toward the team’s starting quarterback for the 2009 season.  Before Favre unretired for the second straight year, Edwards went on the record to say he didn’t want him on the team.

Now, Edwards is among those who want Favre to come back for another year.

“Definitely, I think he has the ability [to return],” Edwards said.  “Now OTAs and training camp, maybe
not.  But come the start of the season, I’m pretty sure there wouldn’t
be a problem with that with most guys and we’d love to have him back if
that’s the case.”

And if, as we believe, the Vikings will open the 2010 season with a return to the Superdome, Edwards might finally get a chance to do that which he would have done if he had known what the Saints were doing to Favre.

    Edwards would have to get to the quarterback before he could hit the quarterback. I am assuming he was already trying to do that.
    After all, that’s his job, isn’t it?

  2. pimpinaintbreesy says: Feb 13, 2010 12:00 AM

    Now let’s play this quote all over the place like they did with Greg Williams. His head would have had to have been up his ass to not know Favre was getting pounded. Did he not see him get carried off the field? I hope they do play next year at the Superdome in the first game, they will get pounded because the Saints are better….period!

  3. this class sucks says: Feb 13, 2010 12:02 AM

    I’m not buying that he didn’t know Favre was getting hit like that all game. Why did he think he left the game? As Bill Beliceck would say “thats a lot of talk from a team that just lost another game.”

  4. sven_ftw says: Feb 13, 2010 12:07 AM

    i’d welcome the rematch. hell of a way to kick off the new season.

  5. Rip says: Feb 13, 2010 12:08 AM

    More whining from the losers. They were trying to do the same thing, they just weren’t good enough to accomplish it.

  6. gopher says: Feb 13, 2010 12:09 AM

    You can always hit late and low and take a 15 yarder if the ref sees it.

  7. Postman says: Feb 13, 2010 12:09 AM

    Why are you always force-feeding Vikings stories? 1/3 of all your write-ups are Vikings-related.

  8. VoxVagina says: Feb 13, 2010 12:10 AM

    Well hey, don’t count out the possibility that Ray Edwards ends up on another team. He’d be a hot commodity if the price was right and the team that offers him a deal in restricted FA is loaded with picks.

  9. GobiasINC_1 says: Feb 13, 2010 12:12 AM

    Since when is it a penalty to try to hit the other team’s quarterback? Just because the golden god, Mariah Carey-esqu diva was getting hit people are having a fit over it!
    What about when Aaron Rodgers was getting hit by the Vikings defensive line? I didn’t hear anyone crying over that.
    But it’s old silver-fox and he didn’t get to the Super Bowl because those nasty Saints actually tackled the quarterback! What is the NFL coming to?

  10. DAS says: Feb 13, 2010 12:21 AM

    Ray Edwards – Theoretical BadAss…

  11. TheFoo says: Feb 13, 2010 12:21 AM

    Yes, but unlike the Saints he wasn’t being coached to hit the QB late illegally.

  12. thediesel28 says: Feb 13, 2010 12:24 AM

    Edwards DESTROYED the cowboys, and still had a sack AND a forced fumble in the conference championship game, the NFL admitted that there were missed roughing the passer calls against Favre. I would say Ray did his job without breaking the rules, the saints D line played dirty and hit a 40 yearold qb who was picking them apart late more than a few times and thanks to a missed rouging the passer call, made the supper bowl and beat the colts. dont you ever say ray didnt do his job

  13. Mactator says: Feb 13, 2010 12:25 AM

    The Queens suck! The Lions will overtake them next season.

  14. Tompadre says: Feb 13, 2010 12:25 AM

    nerd -
    I’m sure Edwards was referring to the illegal hits the Saints were applying to Favre. You can always arrive late or low without too much extra effort.

  15. FumbleNuts says: Feb 13, 2010 12:27 AM

    “And if, as we believe, the Vikings will open the 2010 season with a return to the Superdome.”
    If that happens, it will be a WAR to start the 2010 season!

  16. Akshun says: Feb 13, 2010 12:28 AM

    good to know that the people on the sidelines weren’t going around telling each other DURING THE GAME the way the Saints were pounding Favre after every play

  17. sullivat says: Feb 13, 2010 12:32 AM

    I do believe he was refering to the fact that the Saints had several late/dirty hits on Favre including the one the McRay got fined $20,000 dollars for and made Favre’s leg reflect the color of his uniform. Given Gregg William’s comments about hitting Peyton Manning so he would not get up again, I imagine the same thing was said about Favre before the game. In which case, no, that type of hit is not Edward’s job. That could have turned into a really ugly situation.

  18. God's Own Silver and Blue says: Feb 13, 2010 12:38 AM

    ROFL! Ray Edwards “didn’t know” Favre was getting bitchslapped around? He was PLAYING IN THE FRIGGIN’ GAME!.What was he doing that he was apparently the only one out of 100,000 people who DIDN’T know – playing PSP or talking to his agent on his cell?

  19. Kam88 says: Feb 13, 2010 12:44 AM

    Someone get him a pacifier, games been over for bout a month now son!

  20. loudgazelle says: Feb 13, 2010 12:45 AM

    how the hell did he not notice that Favre was getting pummeled by the Saints defense? I can’t fathom a way that anyone watching that game – let alone participating in it- could miss the beating that old man was taking.

  21. faulkn22 says: Feb 13, 2010 12:48 AM

    You’re an idiot Nerd. He meant that he would hit Brees even if he’s already passed the ball. Jesus, some people are dense. Do you even watch football?

  22. The Notorious V.I.C. says: Feb 13, 2010 12:48 AM

    Yeah, but all you media idiots keep talking about what a jerk Favre is and how all his teammates hate him.
    Shows what you pencilneck couch jockeys know.

  23. Ross'sSweetMinus says: Feb 13, 2010 12:57 AM

    Edwards is a douche bag.
    Hey percy_harvin your a shart stain.

  24. Sports-Enthusiast says: Feb 13, 2010 1:07 AM

    Hilarious! What a joke! This is coming from a hypocrite who didn’t even want Favre on the team before he really had the chance to know him. Are we really supposed to believe this garbage. This is more whining coming from a player who obviously didn’t make an impact during the game and now wants to complain and make excuses for their loss, as well as draw attention to himself. That is the definition of a sore loser.
    Most of us across the country saw the game, as the viewer ratings were very high. The Vikings defenders talked trash all week about how they were going to put Brees on the ground repeatedly. The barely even got to him (apparently the biased media was drooling over the wrong offensive line, as the Saints line full of Pro Bowlers turned out to be the dominant group). The least everyone can do for hyping up the wrong group is to give credit where it is due.
    The objective for the defense is to disrupt the quarterback and ulimately sack him. How would Edwards have “sought revenge” when he and the defenders couldn’t even get close to Brees the whole game. They were so far from him that if they did try to hit Brees late, they would have been ejected from the game because the shot would have occurred several seconds late.
    Let’s face it… we all saw the 2 hits that everyone is complaining about. The consensus is that the first hit where Favre is still in motion after the handoff and gets hit and draws a flag was a bogus call. The subsequent play where Favre was tackled below his knees should’ve drawn a penalty but didn’t because it a make-up no call for the bad penalty before. The rest of the hits on Favre were all part of an aggressive defense playing good football. Vikings fans complained because their star was getting beaten up and their defense couldn’t get to Brees. The whole nation is fed up with all the complaining about dirty play. We also don’t care who the Vikings outgained in terms of yardage. That is not what wins games. The Saints had less yardage, better special teams play, more turnovers, and had defensive stops where it counted. We all questioned the Saints’ opportunistic defense, but they clearly showed throughout the season, in the playoffs, and in the Super Bowl that it works and their team scored more points than the opposition, despite how many yards they surrendered. I ran across the following clip on a chat board that shows some questionable calls in the NFC Championship game and why they weren’t called – the interesting thing here is that they weren’t called against the Vikings (I didn’t see these until now and wonder myself how the he|| these weren’t called):

  25. Sports-Enthusiast says: Feb 13, 2010 1:16 AM

    I love it when writers or fans of a team stick up for their team when other fans try to dismiss a win or rain on their parade. I’ve seen a few articles floating around this season that addressed just that, and here is another one that arose in a search of the NFC Championship game comments and observations (it pretty accurately reflects how the nation feels about all the complaining that we’ve had to endure from the Vikings ever since they lost the game):

    The Vikes are going to be a force in 2010 – I can’t wait!!!

  27. benniehifive says: Feb 13, 2010 1:29 AM

    I kept waiting for the vikings to start taking some late shots on Brees, because that’s what they seemed to be doing to Favre…I’m not saying it was dirty, but they were definately willing to take a 15 yard penalty in exchange for getting to Brett a half second too late and getting him on the ground. Perhaps we’ll see if they can really do it come this fall’s opener!

  28. myasylum says: Feb 13, 2010 1:41 AM

    Well, I got to say… After watching that game the Saints were being assholes. There was no reason for it. I don’t understand the refs either? It just drives me nuts… Yet the team is fined $20,000.00, but no penalties called… WTF?

  29. Gergie says: Feb 13, 2010 1:45 AM

    By the looks of the $30,000 dollars in fines handed out for those hits it looks like the Saints were a little late at getting to the Quarterback also.

  30. Codename says: Feb 13, 2010 1:52 AM

    I believe he was mostly referring to Bobby “cheap shot after the whistle” McCray.

  31. frank booth says: Feb 13, 2010 2:05 AM

    Is Ray Edwards that wacky country singer that sang “The Streak” and “Gitarzan”?

  32. VonClausewitz says: Feb 13, 2010 2:17 AM

    And this is exactly why Favre is coming back next year. This team now knows what it is like to have a guy who can get them to the promised land. They came about as close as a team can get to the Superbowl against the team that ended up winning it. That’s like Winning Crack. They’ve had a taste and they need more. And hey, Favre’s still got it. The wear and tear is the question, but I’m sure the Vikes can find a way to minimize that. Winning a championship would be a hell of a way to go out too.

  33. raven4life says: Feb 13, 2010 2:24 AM

    how do you not know what’s going on when your a.) at the game, b.) on the sidelines, and c.) watching your qb getting helped off the field, edwards is all talk

  34. Johnnyb612 says: Feb 13, 2010 2:28 AM

    The queens play in the Metrodome, florio.

  35. DieHardSkinsFan21 says: Feb 13, 2010 2:33 AM

    I hope he gets to him and knocks his block off, just shouldn’t have broadcast it. Brees will be in a boat load of trouble when they play each other next year and I can’t wait to see the Vike’s kick their ass.

  36. bspurloc says: Feb 13, 2010 2:45 AM

    How does he know when to go back on the field if he isnt watching the offense?
    really? I am sure even Sanchez eating a hot dog was watching the defense, so what does this retard do?

  37. nps6724 says: Feb 13, 2010 2:57 AM

    What a bunch of crazy people, going after the QB like that! What do they think they’re doing?! It’s almost like they’re paid for this or something.

  38. Adam says: Feb 13, 2010 3:28 AM

    Stay classy Minnesota

  39. lilhopo says: Feb 13, 2010 4:22 AM

    Edwards how could you not watch your offense, hey I guess you had better things to do in the NFC Championship

  40. Joe in Toronto, Canada says: Feb 13, 2010 5:59 AM

    I kept waiting for an O-lineman to take out McCray, I still can’t believe nobody did.

  41. Floyd the Barber says: Feb 13, 2010 6:30 AM

    Oh, Ray will most certainly get to the quarterback. He will most certainly come, Ray. And if it happens to be late, and cheap, and penalized, and snaps Drew Brees in half. It’ll just be a part of the strategy, I guess. So long as he remembers. that’s the important thing.

  42. straightup says: Feb 13, 2010 6:40 AM

    So he’s saying he will intentionally try to hurt Brees. Who’s dirty now?

  43. God's Own Silver and Blue says: Feb 13, 2010 7:18 AM

    This is the second time in two days the moderators here have tombstoned one of my comments about a Viking player because it apparently wasn’t fawning enough or they didn’t like it personally.
    Do they feed you moderators less or something when I point out that it is the height of whininess for Ray Edwards to cry about Favre’s allegedly bad treatment on the field when he is one of the very people who had a golden opportunity (i.e. was wearing pads) to do something about it during the entire game?
    Warning to everybody here – DON’T CRITICIZE THE VIKINGS OR ANY VIKINGS PLAYER OR YOUR COMMENTS WON’T GET POSTED.

  44. SFrancis1680 says: Feb 13, 2010 7:19 AM

    i’m sure Edwards passed up on chances to hit Brees during that game, {SARCASAM}… there is one huge difference between the two QBs, Brees gets rid of the ball quickly, which negates the pass rush, while Farve will hold the ball a little longer looking for the big play,…and the fact that he’s a DRAMA QUEEN, …they had trouble protecting him against Carolina, maybe Edwards should talk to Chilly, and tell me about keeping more guys in to help pass block

  45. Florio-is-a-tool says: Feb 13, 2010 7:22 AM

    Regarding your last sentence: what’s different is that Brees won’t do to his team what Farte always does to his – every stinking year.
    What’s funny is that Brent clearly wants to come back but if he returned to the Vikings he’d have to attend training camp. Wonder if that’ll push him over the edge.

  46. packerfanfornot4life says: Feb 13, 2010 7:32 AM

    was he in the crapper while the team was on offense??
    how does he not know how hard he was getting hit?

  47. JimmySmith says: Feb 13, 2010 7:44 AM

    Keep in mind, Ray Edwards also predicted that he would break Michael Strahan’s single season sack record so we can all assess how accurate he is in his bold predictions. But he shares that unsavory trait of smack talking with his fellow Viking fans; is there any fan base in the NFL that comes close to the Viking for claiming superiority and then delivering disappointment? No, I didn’t think so either.
    So what if Brent got hit a few times, he has to expect that in the NFL. The Saints strategy actually paid huge dividends on that fateful play when all Brent had to do was run about 5 yards (but he was too big of a pussy to take another hit) to set up the game winning FG and instead he throws an INT to write another historic chapter in the Viking’s book of futility. (which is approaching epic proportions on the scale of War & Peace).
    That plus karma; you can’t snub your nose at the football gods by hiding behind the MN state judges, tampering with other players, and then running to the airport with no sense of dignity and still expect to win a Superbowl. The football gods demand at least a minimal level of decency & character, both sorely missing in the Viking organization and their intellectually challenged fan base.

  48. OutlawOrder says: Feb 13, 2010 7:59 AM

    nerd’s a tard, lol.
    they were getting to brees but unlike the saints, the vikes pulled up instead of throwing late hit after late hit. guarantee had the vikes put the late hits on brees the way the saints did favre, it would have been a flag fest.
    but i guess paying the fines that allow you to cheat is worth a super bowl ring.

  49. last starfighter says: Feb 13, 2010 8:01 AM

    While Edwards is at it he should dive at favres knees to get revenge for Favre’s preseason cheap shot on a defender. Seriously, what a bunch of cry babies. The Saints played hard hitting football, they didn’t take head shots or dive at knees, they just hit favre hard. Just get over it all ready, you got beat fair and square.

  50. Zatko says: Feb 13, 2010 8:04 AM

    That’s more like it.

  51. bearsrule says: Feb 13, 2010 8:10 AM

    He didn’t know ? That’s baloney.

  52. shadowman1433 says: Feb 13, 2010 8:10 AM

    He should have taken revenge against farve for throwing away their season.

  53. Bun McSticky says: Feb 13, 2010 8:33 AM

    Edwards had 8.5 sacks last year in the regular season and 3 against the Cowboys before injuring his knee….to say some of you are dense is an understatement.

  54. lilhopo says: Feb 13, 2010 8:38 AM

    So Ray you did not have time watch the offense in this game, what other things are important during the NFC championship. I guess well never know

  55. Floyd the Barber says: Feb 13, 2010 8:43 AM

    Fines are cool for Ray. Just like they are for Greg Williams. Just so long as Ray gets his money’s worth by breaking Brees’ bones. hopefully they meet in the season opener so they can put any talk of a repeat to bed early.

  56. hckcm7315 says: Feb 13, 2010 8:47 AM

    This is one of the very few examples where hockey is better than football; the gloves would have been dropped and the cheap shots, and late hits would have stopped.
    You never saw Wayne Gretzky get hit like that, and if anyone dared to Marty McSorley was out the next shift with orders to break someone’s face.

  57. Firefly says: Feb 13, 2010 8:49 AM

    Mike Pereira said that the play that Favre’s ankle was injured in should have definitely been a penalty. That would have nullified the first interception and put the ball on the 19 in scoring range. I also wonder why they didn’t call a penalty on another play that was blown dead and the Saints player still plowed Favre. If you can’t hear the whistle because your own home crowd interfers, you should still be penalized.

  58. TrentDilferisaDouche says: Feb 13, 2010 8:53 AM

    What a beautiful world it would be without Jimmy Smith in it…………..Hey scumbag, get off your sister and go brush your tooth. You are just mad that we crushed your beloved packers twice.
    As far as the saints, dirty team, dirty coaches and dirty fans. Can you imagine what all those pussies would be saying if the Vikings would have taken a shot at Brees’ legs? Most QB’s would have sat down unlike Favre the warrior. You have to respect that.

  59. ADX says: Feb 13, 2010 8:55 AM

    JimmySmith,
    His name is Brett not Brent
    Stop doing so much blow

  60. tmainj says: Feb 13, 2010 9:07 AM

    The Vikings loss to the Saints was a team loss. The interception was just the final contributing piece. Those who pile on Quarterbacks (like the great Bret Favre, Tom Brady, Donovan McNabb, Drew Brees, and Peyton Manning) are frustrated losers to these leaders or are loser gamblers.

  61. JimmySmithReallyBlows!! says: Feb 13, 2010 9:09 AM

    The Vikes had the right to retaliate and knock the shit out of Brees by hitting him late too. Especially after Greg Williams made those comments about knocking the QB’s out of the games.
    An eye for an eye baby!!!
    The Saints better start Bobby Herbert against the Vikes next year because there will be a bounty againt Brees…or, maybe they should just go take out williams on the sideline!!!
    vikes….2010 Super Bowl Champs!!!

  62. Wick says: Feb 13, 2010 9:19 AM

    @ OutlawOrder:
    I completely agree with your take. No question. The Vikings were not laying out salvo after salvo of the cheap stuff. The garbage. The stuff that gets you a FedEx package containing a 5 figure fine from New York City signed by R. Goodell.
    Next point.
    One other matter raised by this piece that is not being discussed – but is certainly one that bears mentioning is as follows.
    In August of ’09, Favre had tremendous weight on his shoulders – flak coming at him from nearly all fronts.
    The Jets experience soured, and he was not popular in Gotham.
    Green Bay – where he was a legend for over 15 years – then largely reviled Favre as a traitor, though most of them too would change jobs if a better opportunity was availed to them.
    Many in the media also resented Favre – and presented him in a myriad of derogatory ways meant to denigrate what he’s all about, and how tired his act had become.
    And it’s not the media’s fault — many NFL fans felt similarly. That was the widely held perception on Favre. Resentment. “Would you finally just go away?”
    Then, on top of all this — he rolls into a locker room in Minnesota that was considered so fractured that Favre was largely blamed for a “schism.”
    So if catching heat on all those fronts isn’t enough, oh yeah — one of the hardest jobs, if not the hardest, in all of professional sports is playing QB at the NFL level — in today’s game …. at 40 years old.
    What did Favre do? Throw 37 TD passes to only 7 picks … plus Ray Edwards’ comments noted above underscore that he also succeeded in completely winning over the entire locker room.
    Not too shabby. Performance and leadership – at an unbelievable level.
    Huge credit to Favre in my book. Huge. Look what he was up against 6 months ago — catching heat on nearly all fronts — and how he rose up.
    So many focus on Favre throwing that last pick, as if he’s a worthless pussy and an abject failure. Those people should take a good hard look in the mirror – and ask themselves, what kind of man are they?

  63. Buck Stallion says: Feb 13, 2010 9:21 AM

    Edwards and Brooking should hang out together. They can paint each others nails and stay up all night and cry on each others shoulders.

  64. Lurch says: Feb 13, 2010 9:23 AM

    Well Ray, it’s not too late. You can go over to his house and hit him on the head.

  65. JimmySmithReallyBlows!! says: Feb 13, 2010 9:30 AM

    Hey Purple Fans…..have you ever noticed when Florio posts a story about the Vikes or Favre,
    that these stories receive about 4 times as many comments as any other story that gets posted?
    That’s what happens when you load your team up with a bunch of pro bowl players that people want to watch and hear about….you’re also gonna get a lot of HATERS that want you to fail because the national media constantly puts the Vikes in the spotlight.
    So, why don’t you HATERS just worry about your own shitty ass franchises for once. Obviously, they’re not good enough garner as much attention as the vikes and that obviously bothers all of you!!!
    I loved Favre even when he was a packers so having him on the Vikes is just icing on the cake:)

  66. Rip says: Feb 13, 2010 9:31 AM

    No wonder they hit beat, idiots don’t care enough to pay attention to their own game.

  67. ShimSham says: Feb 13, 2010 9:38 AM

    Never thought I’d see a pass rusher get bothered by any QB being hit.

  68. FootballOnly says: Feb 13, 2010 9:46 AM

    i gotta admit, the saints deserved to win the SB, as they soundly defeated the Colts…….they didn’t deserve to get to the SB as the vikings soundly out played them and had it not been for the dirty playing and bad officiating calls, the saints would not have been in the SB. don’t care what some of you say, it is quite ridiculous when 3 players get fined 30 grand for dirty playing but yet no penalties called.

  69. 40for58 says: Feb 13, 2010 9:48 AM

    It’t too bad Edwards didn’t take a cheap shot on Brees. The Saints fans don’t see it, but their team played dirty. These fans feel like all they have to say is Vikings fans are crying and whining and that makes it ok that their team played dirty. Or they can say Jarad Allen did this or that in the past. What the Saints D did was far more blatant and the NFL slapped them on the wrist. I hope next season the Vikings gun for Brees.
    There were numerous objective observers who plainly saw the Saints were trying to injure Favre. I thought that ‘wasn’t cool’ to quote Mike Tericho to try and injure another teams player. I know next season the Vikings wont seek revenge, but they should.
    From here on out, every game the Saints lose is good news to me, every call that doesn’t go their way is good to me.

    Ok so visual proof that calls were missed on both sides. Yeah Ray we get it. If you knew you would have done something about it. Translation, if I could get within 5 feet of the QB before the play was dead, I would have done something. Dude let it rest. There are only two types of people who care at this point – those who are Vikings Fans and those who are fans of Vikings Fans.

    as a vikings fan i wouldn’t want them to hurt drew brees. but i would want him to be hit hard in fair play. not late, and cheap, like mccray.
    you can see the vikings d line let up after brees threw passes in that game.
    the saints, on the other hand, kept driving in hopes to somehow tangle up favre, and they did.
    viking fans are outraged because favre was hit late, and it was a cheap shot. and no flag. the nfl even said there should have been one. our bitterness won’t go away, and if it was your team, you wouldn’t either if it was the game before the superbowl.
    there is a difference between hitting a QB in fair play, and hitting one so blatantly late.

  73. FireJerryJones says: Feb 13, 2010 10:00 AM

    … so i guess he would’ve tried harder?

  74. Sallier says: Feb 13, 2010 10:00 AM

    Too funny! Favre was peddling backwards and McCray gets pushed from behind while trying to wrap Favre up – this fine will be over turned and only come out of pitiful outcry in the first place. And really do all of you whiners even remember that illegal crack-back Favre threw on Wilson? After all it was a Pre-Season Monday Night game. Favre should not have been playing this season due to being suspended for that hit and McCray getting pushed into him during the playoff’s is nowhere near the same neighborhood; not even the same Solar System.

  75. mike says: Feb 13, 2010 10:11 AM

    Woulda coulda shoulda. Maybe Prince will write a song about the history of the vikings

  76. slipkid says: Feb 13, 2010 10:18 AM

    edwards is a dolt. it would be interesting to see him go elsewhere. without venus, serena, and the mullet, he is nobody. those guys can all draw more than one blocker. he cant even connect the dots.
    and the vikings dont exactly imitate mother teresa out there on the field, folks.
    and the important thing about favre is that in the end, he came thru, sans pressure, with an over the body across the field throw… to the opposition… in the playoffs.
    when even he could have tucked it down, gotten 5 yards back, and set up a make-able FG.
    dare one say… pants on the ground?

  77. nps6724 says: Feb 13, 2010 10:24 AM

    Call the WAHbulance, STAT!
    Viking fans are the biggest crybags I’ve ever seen. Yeah, they didn’t do anything illegal and not get called for it, no sirree. Jared Allen certainly didn’t slam Brees into the ground without a flag, nope. They’re perfect little angels.
    They should change that purple to pink and wear tutus because they’re acting like little baby girls.

  78. Rip says: Feb 13, 2010 10:29 AM

    Footbaloney, you’re an idiot. Saints had almost 100 yards of penalties and vikes got 14 points off of bogus calls. The vikes got beat, deal with it

    The Queens suck! The Lions will overtake them next season.
    ——————————————————
    So you are saying that vikes will take second in the division, the lions first and the bears and pack fighting to get out of the cellar?
    losing the NFC championship game actually makes the vikes the second best team in the conferance, unlike the shitty packers and torrid bears.
    Have you see American Football before?

  80. GBP says: Feb 13, 2010 10:47 AM

    Is everyone seriously still talking about poor old Favre and the ass kicking he received??? How long since the game has been played??? This story is dead but some choose to resurrect it again and again. We know the story and what happened. Ray Edwards is a punk for bringing out these comments now – who cares what you would have done, Ray? I’m sure your thoughts are striking fear in the heart of Drew Brees. Bottom line, the Vikes got beaten and football is a man’s game and if you can’t take the beating, get the hell out. Please, can we, for the love of everything holy, let this story go?????

    … when 3 players get fined 30 grand for dirty playing but yet no penalties called.
    Hmmm, I got the two on McCray and 1 was called. What was the third, it escapes me?
    Also, please weigh in on Favre doing the same thing in preseason to Wilson. At the very lease you should admit that for consistency purposes Favre is a dirty player…

  82. nps6724 says: Feb 13, 2010 10:54 AM

    “viking fans are outraged because favre was hit late, and it was a cheap shot. and no flag. the nfl even said there should have been one. our bitterness won’t go away, and if it was your team, you wouldn’t either if it was the game before the superbowl.”
    ONE play matched this criteria. And the Saints got called for a penalty that shouldn’t have been, so it evens out. And one of the Viking DL did the exact same thing Anthony Hargrove did (drove the QB into the ground unnecessarily) and wasn’t flagged.
    Funny how you Viking fans never mention that one or every illegal hit Allen has made. Here is a play on Matt Schaub that wasn’t called (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDbREIjpukk&NR=1&feature=fvwp). Or this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcqjClE7cuk) where he actually injured Schaub, tearing his MCL. So I guess Allen is a dirty player too.
    And on one play, Brees bobbles the snap on 3rd-and-2 (4th quarter, 8 minutes left) and tries to go up the middle. AFTER HE’S DOWN, Pat Williams, who already has a hold of his ankle, drags him over a yard backward. Oh, but that’s not dirty at all huh?
    Quit crying.

  83. bluestree says: Feb 13, 2010 10:59 AM

    So now it appears the incessant whining of Vikings fans has filtered down to the team. What a bunch of Crybabies! Man up and take responsibility for your failures for god’s sake! You got beat! You didn’t hold on to the ball! They ripped it out of your hands, picked it out of the air and stuck it up your ass! Deal with it like men, not sniveling, finger pointing losers! Whining is a perfect fit for Farve, though. If he had thrown that pick in the Super Bowl like Manning, he would have been making big, wide gestures frome 20 yards away to Reggie Wayne, so everyone would know it was a bad route. Tell me you haven’t seen him do that a hundred times after a game-killing pick. Ray Edwards and the Vikings remind me of the old Richard Pryor routine, where a bloody, beat up dude picks himself up off the playground and says “Where’d he go! Nobody stomps my ass for an hour and just walks away!”

  84. Rip says: Feb 13, 2010 11:10 AM

    Nps – don’t bother trying to apply reason to these whiners. They think a team that scores fewer points and coughs up the ball 8 times (and has 5 times as many turnovers as the winning team) “deserves” to win.
    We all saw two Viking drives extended and ultimately result in scores on 3rd down, bogus calls. The Vikings were the beneficiary of the horrible officiating much more so than the saints. There was one no-call over the Marsha Brady rule, that still gives the queens a plus one in that category, but to listen to these losers you’d think that that one single missed call cost them the game
    of course, they fail to mention the hit by Allen on brees that was most definitely an illegal hit that they got away with. That would put the queens right back at plus two in that category.
    But then, they’d actually have to take responsibility for the actions of their team, and it certainly can’t be their fault that they can’t hold on to the damned football
    whine, bitches, whine – you still got beat

  85. bluestree says: Feb 13, 2010 11:31 AM

    In a related story, Ray Edwards says he would have sought revenge for Tupac Shakur’s killing, had he known about it. Said Edwards “I definately would have gone after Biggie Smalls on that one, if I had known. I don’t really follow what happens with rap music, I’m a country and western guy.”

  86. philwauke says: Feb 13, 2010 11:34 AM

    You better hope there is a team in Minny in the next couple of years. Viking fans are whinny bitches “weee outplyeddd ya’ll”. Look at the scoreboard. If Edwards would have known what was going on during the game they could have had a chance.

  87. CaptainFantastik says: Feb 13, 2010 11:37 AM

    I’m absolutely loving the whining/excuses coming from the sore loser Vikings fans who ran their mouths all year after every blowout over bad opponents on that cupcake schedule. They are the lowest common denominator in the NFL fanbase. They whine about missed/bad calls against the Saints but ignore the missed/bad calls that benefitted their own team in that game (and there were quite a few). Typical sore loser myopic “fans” that needed multiple extensions to avoid a blackout of their home playoff game last year.
    Enjoy that empty trophy case ladies……because it won’t be getting any hardware next year either. The schedule gets quite a bit tougher and the old man is one year older. It’s extremely unrealistic to expect another big year out of him. I doubt the Vikes even make the playoffs next year. They had their chance and blew it.

  88. GobiasINC_1 says: Feb 13, 2010 11:44 AM

    The Minnesota Vikings are the biggest embarrassment in the NFL. They are outraged when an other team’s defense goes after their quarterback, they bend over backwards to suck up to said quarterback, their coach cross-dresses and what is the most pathetic is that their own fans do not support a winning football team.
    Ray Edwards can whine and pout to Paul “heart-attack” Allen all he wants when their both buying houses in Los Angeles.

    It’s hilarious that people honestly say the Saits were a better team. They got their ass kicked all game. We had damn near 10 turnovers and still were driving to win the game. We lost cause of turnovers that’s it. The Saints didn’t beat us, we beat ourselves.

  91. artieblanksucsbigD says: Feb 13, 2010 12:11 PM

    Favre lovers are assuming that he will make a decision to play or not before the NFL hands out the official schedule. yeah we know who they will play however, it is about ratings i.e.”money” for the NFL. Farve has a contract w/Sears that is working for him right now(the more he waffles- the more it is good for both).
    bottom line is the NFL works on a deadline and Farve has a deadline(usually answer comes in time to miss training camp) which is much later than the deadline for scheduling.so why would we all assume the vikes will open the season in the Superdome?

    REALLY???? I mean, REALLY?????
    I find your post more hilarious, VikesandColts Fan. Let’s see… the Saints were 13-3 in the regular season (rested starters in last game as they had already clinched the #1 seed); the Vikings were 12-4. The Saints BEAT the Vikings head-to-head. In case you didn’t know, it’s still an works out that the team that scores the most points wins the game. Hilariously funny, isn’t it?

    Crazy how people feel the Saints, who had a better record and beat the Vikings, are better than the Vikings. CRAZY!
    I guess the Vikings should get someone on the Competition Committee to vote for the elimination of turnovers. By golly, they’re the first team to EVER lose due to turnovers. Their legalization must be revoked!
    Personally when my team loses due to turnovers, I blame the players who committed the turnovers. I don’t whine and cry about how we would’ve won had they not happened. If your uncle was a woman, he’d be your aunt. But I guess “ifs” are all you Viking fans can hang onto at this point.

    Ok Rsy Edwards. Now be a good boy and go lie down for a while.
    Maybe Ray should have actually shown up in the NFC championship game and he wouldn’t have to talking trash now.
    First, don’t give me this crap that you didn’t know they were beating up Favre. Everyone knew it. And if you really didn’t you’re a complete moron.
    Second, aside from the one hit that was low, none were illegal hits. They hit him and they hit him hard. Totally legal, so shut up.
    Lastly, Ray, there’s no need to talk about how you would have hit Brees because in order to do so you have to come within 12 steps of him. You guys were owned at the line of scrimmage. You didn’t hit Brees because you never got anywhere near Brees.
    You lost, period. You can say you deserved to win but you didn’t. Now the Saints are world champs. Suck it up princess and worry about how not to get schooled at the line of scrimmage come next year. God sake, even with Allen getting doubled, you only showed up for one game all year and that was against Dallas. Work on your own game.

    I am SO SICK of people say the Vikes were the better team, I watched Favre in GB he can do amazing things like win you the 9ers game, he can do AWFUL things like make stupid throws into triple coverage or across his body and field. Vikings fans watching him for 20 years should know that now, you wanted him. You got him.

  102. MaybeNextYear says: Feb 13, 2010 3:14 PM

    The comments of many Saints fans in this thread make it sound like they think they kicked the Vikings’ ass or something. Without getting into any of the controversial stuff, I am pretty sure it was obvious to anyone that watched the game and has any sense of reality that the Saints definitely did not kick the Vikings’ ass. Were the Saints so busy kicking the Vikes’ ass up and down the field all day that they just forgot to score enough points to win in regulation? And the way they stood at mid-field and won the OT coin toss because Hutchinson guessed heads instead of tails did not exactly strike me as dominant either. Maybe I watched a different game or something.

    Not one Saints fan has said they dominated Minnesota. OTOH, most of the Vikings fans have said they dominated and whined that they would’ve won despite the turnovers, which the Saints FORCED. You Minny fans act like they just dropped all of them and the Saints were lucky, when that is far from the truth.
    Fact is the Saints were the best team in the NFL. They had the best record and beat every single team that had a claim and beat nothing but Super Bowl-winning HOF QBs in the playoffs.
    I guarantee you if the Saints and Vikings replayed 10 times, the Saints offense wouldn’t play that poorly in more than 2 of them. And I would also say the Vikings wouldn’t commit 5 turnovers in more than 2 of them. In the end, both teams played well in some facets and poorly in others. But the better team won.

  104. FriarBob says: Feb 13, 2010 4:32 PM

    If Edwards had a brain, he wouldn’t have said anything. Now even IF he is able to get to Brees next year (which he didn’t do too well at last time around) the refs have been alerted and he’ll get flagged and fined for breathing on him.
    Not that I’m complaining about that, mind you…

    The hate being thrown at the Vikings by you small sacks proves one thing, Vikings are feared by the fans of the NFL. Face it tools, you are praying Favre don’t come back if you root for an NFC team. Obvious in recent threads. Any true football fan with knowledge knows the Vikings lost but by their own hands. Saints needed OT to beat a team that had a million turnovers. That says it all.

    Other teams may be scared, but Saints fans aren’t. You and other Minny fans love to say “If it weren’t for turnovers…”, but you assume the Saints offense would play as poorly as they did if the game were replayed. Apparently only Viking mistakes wouldn’t repeat but all Saint mistakes would. And the thing is, the Saints forced 3 or more turnovers in 15 of their 19 games so it’s not like it wasn’t expected. I told every Viking fan I talked to that they would turn the ball over at least 3 times. IT’s what the Saints do.
    You can say it took a lot of Viking turnovers for the Saints to win in OT, but it also took the Saints offense being extremely “off” for the Vikings to even get to OT. They failed to score on several of those turnovers, something they usually do well. I would consider myself lucky we only lost by 3 if I cheered for Minnesota.

    “I think all fans, of any sport, can agree that the best team doesn’t always win and thats the point that Vikings fans are trying to make.”
    Except the best team DID win 3 Sundays ago. Best record in the NFL, won the head-to-head matchup, beat 4 Super Bowl-winning HOF QBs, won the Super Bowl. There is ZERO evidence that Minnesota was a better team. ZERO. You can point to the yardage stats all day long, but the Saints won the 2 most important battles in any game: turnovers and points. The team that wins the turnover battle usually wins the game.

    So all that “We were the better team if you discount a very key part of the game, i.e., turnovers” garbage is what?
    “We know Florio is going to write 3 Vikes articles a day, so we just sit back and enjoy them. You fools are seriously so obviously bitter and jealous that you are not getting the attention, you sound like little 4 year old Sally jumping up and down at daddy’s feet for not looking at her.”
    Considering most of the stories posted are about A) arrests, B) rule violations, C) someone saying something stupid, or D) all of the above, I’m happy when I don’t see the Saints on this page. Having your team mentioned on PFT is usually a bad thing.

  115. Sports-Enthusiast says: Feb 13, 2010 11:37 PM

    1) Anyone who says that crap about “you didn’t beat us, we beat ourselves” is a complete loser. The Saints forced turnovers (which they’ve done all year) and beat you. They also played better in special teams and focused on points rather than yardage (so you can talk about the various yards gained during each play while the Saints celebrate their Super Bowl win). Those who say “the best team doesn’t always win” falls into the loser category as well. The team that won the game IS the best team because they found a way to win it. A team that plays well one week and wins may not be the better team the following week because another team may play better. Drooling over your players because they have celebrity status due to writers like the ones from this website write about everything from how great their bathroom breaks are to how many speeding tickets of over 100 mph they can get in a week does NOT make them the better team every week.
    2) This website lost its credibility long ago when the ratio of Vikings articles to those about every other team grew to 10:1. The Vikings articles are written by closet-Vikings fans who give the Vikings fans (who whine and complain more than ANY other fan base of any sports team in the world) continuous opportunity to cry about anything and everything. They believe that if they can actually generate enough complaints, the NFL might reverse the outcome of the game so that the Vikings win. The entire nation has been tired of hearing the incessant whining from Vikings fans. You have lost all credibility on chat boards.
    3) Vikings fans are so fed up with losing the big games that they have become experts at making up laundry lists of excuses and spew things like “dirty play” and “we lost that game, not you” after each big game they lose.
    4) Watch the play where Favre was tackled low. In addition to McCray being pushed in the back into Favre, Will Smith was held on the play but it wasn’t called (you can see this in the video clip linked below). The same clip, which Saints fans created because they were tired of hearing all the Vikings whining (gotta love ‘em for defending their team), shows several plays involving really bad officiating in favor of the Vikings. I had not noticed some of those calls before watching the clip. Combined with the bad calls that I did see, I will definitely say that the Vikings were significantly favored by the refs throughout the game. The Vikings are all upset because the few calls that actually went in favor of the Saints all happened at the end of the game. The Saints got robbed all game (such as the Sharper interception that was overturned because of the defender who touched Favre’s helmet while pulling back) and overcame all of it. When the officiating is actually correct, the Vikings fans claim conspiracy because they could not overcome Favre’s “clutch” throw at the end, which they are still not living down. Yet there was no penalty called when Brees’ helmet was smacked (as shown in the video) or his leg was pulled by Allen or when he was piledriven much harder into the turf by a Vikings defender than Favre was by Hargrove.
    5) The Saints deserved every bit of what they earned… a Super Bowl victory and the right to call themselves World Champions. If the Vikings fans and players would focus their effort on supporting and contributing their team instead of making endless excuses, maybe, just maybe, they might be able to say the same thing one day.

    nps6724 says: You can say it took a lot of Viking turnovers for the Saints to win in OT, but it also took the Saints offense being extremely “off” for the Vikings to even get to OT. They failed to score on several of those turnovers, something they usually do well.

    Pervy…
    The Saints had the best start in the history of the NFC and earned homefield.
    The Saints beat all of the other teams in the “Final Four”.
    The Saints did not lose a game when Shockey played.
    The Saints did not lose a game with their starting cornerbacks.
    The Saints had a top ten defense before they had to play with two cornerbacks who were out on the street before they picked them up and were out on the street after they released them.
    The Saints were perfect in the red zone against the Vikes (all TDs); the Vikes failed in scoring territory multiple times not even mustering field goals.
    The Saints beat the Vikings even though the Saints played their worst game of the year. What does that say for the Vikes? The Saints did not have any Vikes/Cardinals or Vikes/Bears types of outings all year.
    The Saints offense did not turn the ball over; the Saints defense created multiple turnovers OR the Vikings defense did not create a single turnover; the Vikings offense turned it over multiple times. The result is the same no matter how it’s phrased.
    The Saints made two huge kickoff returns that led to points; Vikings zero.
    The Viking were in field goal range to win – run, run, penalty, interception; the Saints needed to get into field goal range to win and went for it on fourth down – the Saints aggressively went for the win. The Vikings had a chance at victory in their hands and showed no guts and even less poise. Both teams were in a similar position except the Vikings did not have the down side of giving up field position (only seconds left); the Saints rose to occasion in both instances; the Vikings shrunk in both instances.
    On third and fifteen I told the fans sitting around me in the Dome, “Don’t worry. They have Brett Favre. This is when he throws picks”. Brees did not throw a single pick in the post season.
    Every close play in OT was reviewed. The controversial interference call was not even a third down; if the penalty was not called the Saints could have still made a first down.
    The Saints won the Super Bowl with one of the gutsiest performances in Super Bowl history; the Vikings got to watch it.

    Saints still won…..WHODAT!

    Pervy Harvin:
    On Adrian Peterson:
    ————————————————–
    “That statement there strips you of the right to be taken seriously about football. You are a know nothing. 1400 yards and 18 td’s ….yah he really sucks don’t he?? Bush and Thomas together couldn’t carry his jock !”
    Both Bush and Thomas were injured this year and are complimentary players. Peterson is by far the #1 back for Minnesota. (If you want to go three deep, then we can add Chester Taylor (338 yards) and Albert Young (53 yards) for the Vikings and Mike Bell (654 yards) for the Saints. Look at the numbers (including playoff games, not including Super Bowl):
    Adrian Peterson:
    1585 yards rushing, 474 yards receiving, 6 fumbles lost. Total TD’s 21.
    Pierre Thomas:
    936 yards rushing, 413 yards receiving, 1 fumble lost. Total TD’s 11.
    Reggie Bush:
    507 yards rushing, 430 yards receiving, 2 fumbles lost. Total TD’s 11.
    (Again this is including playoff games, but not the Super Bowl because the Vikings did not play in one extra game like the Saints did.)
    So by your standards, (“Bush and Thomas together couldn’t carry his jock !”) it looks like Thomas and Bush combined for 2286 yards from scrimmage and scored 22 total TD’s. Peterson had 2059 yards from scrimmage and scored 21 total TD’s. Oh, I almost forgot, Thomas and Bush combined for 3 fumbles lost, while Peterson had 6 fumbles lost. (I am sure all of them were his fault and the defense didn’t force any of them….)
    So, it looks like, “Bush and Thomas together couldn’t carry his jock !”, is not only a false statement, given that they out gained him, outscored, and fumbled half as often, but should read, Peterson couldn’t carry Bush and Thomas’ jock strap…….and if he did he would probably drp one of them.
    If you insist on saying it’s two against one, which is true, you brought them up as combined, then why not look at the stats of the top three backs combined from both teams. (The Saints still look better than the Vikings.) Both Bush and Thomas were injured during the year. I would rather have both of them than one Adrian Peterson. They are also each going to be sporting a nice Super Bowl XLIV Champion ring in the near future.
    I am not a Viking hater, but you guys need to give it a rest. There were bad calls on both sides in that game. I was there, Favre got hit because he stood in the pocket late and delivered the ball. He knew he was going to get hit and stood his ground. The play that drew the later fine was bogus, the player was not trying to hurt Favre. Look at the video and see the calls that were not made in the hits on Brees and then keep complaining…….. The Vikings are a very good football team, the Saints did not play their best game in the NFC Championship, but still won the game. The Vikings did not play their best game either,……. and lost.

    Ray:
    When Brees throws the ball, it merely means you need to hit him at 85% instead of 100%. At least those are the rules according to Cheap Shot McCray.
    But don’t put golden boy Drew out for the season in the opening game. That would really screw up the Saints chance of a repeat.
    I’ll be looking the other way, though.

    Whatever, Studwell. Let me know when the Vikes win a Super Bowl. Better yet, let me know when they get to one.

    Pervy…
    I am fortunate enough to have been there. You were not there. Everyone around me heard me say what I said. I was nervous when it was first and ten in field goal range. After the penalty I expected the interception and was not nervous.
    Be honest with yourself. Were you really surprised that Favre threw a pick in that spot? Based on their past performances, who do you think would have been more likely to throw a pick in that situation, Favre or Brees? It’s what Favre does. He only threw 7 all year, but he threw 2 against the Saints (should have been 3 but a ticky tack penalty negated Sharper’s pick).
    Favre throws interceptions in big spots. That’s just Favre being Favre.

    Let’s face it… we all saw the 2 hits that everyone is complaining about. The consensus is that the first hit where Favre is still in motion after the handoff and gets hit and draws a flag was a bogus call. The subsequent play where Favre was tackled below his knees should’ve drawn a penalty but didn’t because it a make-up no call for the bad penalty before.

    Saints fans, congrats. You won the Super Bowl. You guys deserved it. You need a boost.
    Even with this dream season, you have the 5th worst winning percentage in the history of the NFL. Freaking hilarious that you are suddenly the tough guys, acting all macho.
    Your 2009 team was good (not great). I will freely admit that. But your franchise is about as heralded as the Bengals. Remember when the Bucs won the Super Bowl in 2002? Yeah, I really don’t either. they are right there with you on the all-time list for bad winning percentages.
    Here’s to the Saints getting to .500. In 2018.

  133. armyman says: Feb 15, 2010 9:06 PM

    Thanks Studwell. By the way, the Vikes have been in 4 Super Bowls. Congratulations. Unfortunately they lost 23-7 to the Chiefs, 16-6 to the Steelers, 24-7 to the Dolphins, and 32-14 to the Raiders. Your Super Bowl winning percentage is .000. The Saints’s Super Bowl winning percentage, along with that of the Ravens and the Bucs, is 1000.00.
    Those Viking teams in the Super Bowl were loaded with Hall-of-Famers: Page, Marshall, Yary, Tarkenton,…etc. And who knows for sure how many quarterbacks the Purple People Eaters put out of commission. What are you bitter about? That the Vikings didn’t get a chance to lose possibly a FIFTH Super Bowl?
    The Vikings also had other opportunities to get to the Super Bowl recently. In 98 they had probably the best team in the NFL but lost to Atlanta. In 2000, another great team, a huge loss to the Giants – 44-3 I think, correct me if I’m wrong. Plus there was the famous Hail Mary in the 70s when Drew Pearson caught a bomb to win. I guess I can understand your bitterness.

  134. armyman says: Feb 15, 2010 9:08 PM

    And who cares if you won’t remember our Super Bowl win? We’ll never forget it.

  135. Ghost of Studwell says: Feb 15, 2010 11:18 PM

    Yeah. It sucks that my team has never won a Super Bowl. It sucks that we’ve lost several NFC championship games where we outplayed the other team. (the team that played the Giants in 2001 was never expected to get there so I don’t count them).
    But in the scheme of things, I’m happy. Happy that every year, we know we are going to be in contention for the NFC North. Happy that every year we will make the playoffs, barring injury or bad coaching. Happy that we don’t have “rebuilding” eras.
    I would love for my team to win it all. I want my team to be competive every year, AND win a super bowl. I’m 1 of 2. And unless you are a Patriots fan of the ’00′s or Cowboy’s Fan of the 90′s, (and so on) so are you.
