Brad Childress is still complaining about the Saints defense

More than seven months ago, Vikings coach Brad Childress intimated that he thought the Saints were intentionally trying to injure Brett Favre in the NFC Championship.

And with the Vikings season opening in New Orleans in four days, Childress is being asked about the Saints’ tactics once again.  (Editor’s Note: Only four days.  Finally.  Hell yes.) 

“I understand a quarterback’s going to get hit, people are going to get
hit. It’s football. I don’t have any illusions about that. What I hate
to see are late hits or attempts to hurt anybody. I don’t think there’s
a place for that in the game,” Childress said Sunday.

As our friend Bob Glauber of Newsday points out in an article behind a paywall you don’t pay for, Chilly is likely just trying to get the attention of officials and perhaps a few Saints players.

Brett Favre doesn’t sound too worried about it.

“I’ve heard that from a lot of people and you no what my response is? It’s football,” Favre said.

Drew Brees said nearly the same thing: “I don’t think they hit him illegally in any way. Do I think they hit
hard? Yeah. . . .  Everybody loves hitting the quarterback.”
 
And with that, we’d like to retire the dirty hit theme for the week.  Four days.

    I hate to say it, but Chilly is right…..and the video tape proves it. There were late hits and player(s) have admitted publically they were attempting to take Favre out of the game.

  2. BigBear123 says: Sep 5, 2010 4:53 PM

    Saints are going to hit Favre like Katrina, a falling bridge, blown oil well, etc.

  3. MrHumble says: Sep 5, 2010 4:55 PM

    I agree….leave it go but it does make me smile how Brees has changed his tune. He and the Saints talked trash for 7 months about their handling of BF in that game (keeping in mind that a couple of Saints players were fined for late hits thus the NFL agrees they were illegal) but now that the game is on the doorstep, Brees too has to emphasize “no illegal hits”. I’ve never thought of the Vikings as being dirty players in the games i’ve watched throughout the years (Bud Grant would have a heartattack, lol) but I wouldn’t blame the vikings if a couple of their players just happened to “get some fines” for hits on Brees. What goes around comes around!!

    Always remember what goes around comes around … so if Brees gets hurt this Thursday … I don’t want to hear about any cheap shots.

  6. flake13 says: Sep 5, 2010 4:56 PM

    Chilly is a whiner!
    He whined after the Steelers beat them, too.
    whine! whine! whine!

  7. Bun McSticky says: Sep 5, 2010 4:58 PM

    The Saints players got fined afterwards, so FU Rosenthal. It was dirty and the NFL agreed.

  8. BENCHTJACK says: Sep 5, 2010 4:59 PM

    In case anyone cares, I hate the Saints.

  10. nps6724 says: Sep 5, 2010 5:01 PM

    As usual, Chilly knows nothing. His own QB said the hits weren’t dirty.
    Nosredna, EVERY defender tries to knock EVERY offensive player out of the game. Don’t act surprised. There was ONE late hit in the game BTW.

  11. philwauke says: Sep 5, 2010 5:01 PM

    Show where the players said that. Childress needs to worry about not having smart players. All the physical talent in the world will not help if your players aren’t very smart. You can talk about the other team cheating all you want and make excuses all day but how do you correct all of the turnovers, dumb penalties “12 men in the huddle” and overall screwups? Face it vikings you are your own worst enemies.

  12. stay classy says: Sep 5, 2010 5:01 PM

    Brees better keep his head on a pivot considering the way that Vikings D line play in preseason (including the “back-ups”)

  13. VKGSFN says: Sep 5, 2010 5:02 PM

    I agree, of course they tried to take Farve out of the game. The Saints suck…….

  14. rovibe says: Sep 5, 2010 5:04 PM

    Of course he’s right. League officials admitted as much in the weeks after the game, saying the refs were letting late hits slide that should have been flagged.

  15. lsutiger3008 says: Sep 5, 2010 5:04 PM

    What a cry baby bitch! This is football you wus. Just because you are a chicken sh*t cross dressing pedophile doesnt mean people are gonna treat it like a flag football game. Hope the Queens can hurry up and fire you so you can go back to your old occupation of driving an ice cream truck in attempt to lure little children over for a game of show me yours and i’ll show you mine!

  16. danielcp0303 says: Sep 5, 2010 5:04 PM

    Don’t care much for either of these teams, but the Vikings need to stop crying. If the Saints were going after Favre and trying to take him out of the game, it worked. They got him to make a stupid decision and throw the ball across his body. Maybe if Childress wasn’t a terrible coach, he could figure out some protections that wouldn’t get his qb killed.

  17. mr.bozojones says: Sep 5, 2010 5:06 PM

    The name of the game defensively these days is, stop the run and get to the QB. With the current rules, it’s almost impossible to cover the receivers. Favre and Brees know how the game is played, it don’t faze them. It opens up other things in the passing game. The refs will have a quick whistle Thursday, due to last year’s playoff game. Chilli’s blabbing changes nothing.

  18. Fonetik says: Sep 5, 2010 5:06 PM

    I don’t remember any specific examples from that game, so I’ll just speak generally. I love seeing a good hit as much as anybody, but headhunting and late shots piss me off. They’re the refuge of those who can’t beat their opponent fairly and cleanly.
    One of the many reasons I have zero respect for Buddy Ryan… and I’m a lifelong Eagles fan.

  19. NOwillrepeat says: Sep 5, 2010 5:08 PM

    If Chilly wasn’t such a dumbass and had the right amount of people in the huddle instead of making one of the most bone-headed mistakes in playoff history, none of this would matter.
    Go put another dress on Childress, cause your acting like a whinny little b!tch!

  20. BrentFavre says: Sep 5, 2010 5:08 PM

    Awww. poor Chilly.

  21. pga5 says: Sep 5, 2010 5:09 PM

    Perhaps Childress should complain about his own players putting the ball on the ground or throwing pix instead of taking a page out of the “Phil Jackson Manual of Referee Manipulation.”
    No, that’s assuming responsibility for your own doings. Wouldn’t want to start doing that now, would we?

  22. rcunningham says: Sep 5, 2010 5:10 PM

    In before 100 comments about “HAHA STUPID VIQUEENS CRY MORE” and other such ignorant comments.
    It’s amazing how predictable all of you are.
    I agree with Favre and Brees: It’s football, let’s just play.

  23. robert ethen says: Sep 5, 2010 5:10 PM

    The Swamp Scum absolutely deliberately injured Favre in that game. But the worst part is that the criminals in stripes hired to watch out for that stuff allowed it to happen. With impunity.

  24. rovibe says: Sep 5, 2010 5:10 PM

    You know what he’s doing here — he’s putting the officials on notice so they’ll be a little quicker to throw the flag when Faver gets hit without the ball in his hands. Smart move.

  25. Norseman says: Sep 5, 2010 5:11 PM

    We’ll see what all the Saints whiners have to say when 700 pounds of Williams Wall does a flop on Brees. Or Jerrod Allen and Ray Edwards does a high-low on him. They’ll change their tune in a hurry.

  26. mike says: Sep 5, 2010 5:11 PM

    Chilly is trying to get favre injured so tjack can lead the team

  27. PercyChuggs says: Sep 5, 2010 5:12 PM

    Oh, they were definitely going out of their way to injure Favre. The most blatant example was on a HANDOFF, in which Favre gave the ball to Peterson, and was rolling out AWAY from the direction of the run, and was creamed by a Saints player.
    People like Florio are pretty much assuming Favre won’t make it through the season. What they forget is, aside from the Saints game, and the 49ers game early last year, the Vikings offensive line, and offensive schemes, did a great job of keeping Favre from taking big hits. The media loves to talk up that vaunted Packers “#1 ranked” defense as a reason why THEY should be the team to beat in the NFC North. Funny, that awesome defense didn’t even breathe on Favre in 2 games last season. Oh, and their best pass rusher (Aaron Kampman) doesn’t play for them anymore.

  28. vikingcole says: Sep 5, 2010 5:12 PM

    i really hope that the Vikings defensive players have enough balls to get some vengeance and completely annihilate every Saints player they can get their hands or helmets on. We owe it to Brett to destroy their best players for the season. Here’s to blown out knees, concussions and decapitations! make our Viking ancestors proud!!! SKOL VIKINGS SKOL!!!
    gonna be one HELL of a game! ;)

  29. frederj says: Sep 5, 2010 5:12 PM

    I hate to agree with Childress to but the Saints damn blatent late hits and the non calls by the blind officials were ridiculous. Guees they had money riding on the game. Even friends who are not Viking fans said the same thing. I saw at least 4-5 hits that were well after he got rid of the ball and not once were they penalized . To lose games like that is totally uncalled for. If that had been Either Manning or Romo there probably would have been ten flags thrown.
    I hope the vikes retaliate and knock Brees on his geister on every play.

  30. JimmySmith says: Sep 5, 2010 5:14 PM

    Living up to their nickname; CryQueens. What about Jared Allen, how many times has he dived at a QB’s knees?
    The Saints played the game hard, as it should be played. If Childress really wants to look for an excuse in choking the game away, I would suggest they start with 5 fumbles, 12 men in the huddle and then BrINT’s annual playoff INT. To accuse the Saints is just bush league, much like Childress’s refusal to shake another coach’s hand after a game that you lost. That tells you more about his character than anything else.
    Its sad but Childress isn’t emotionally equipped to perform at the NFL level, this is just the first example in 2010 in what looks to be one of major disappointment for the franchise.

  31. mattgso says: Sep 5, 2010 5:14 PM

    Chilly… you’re no Phil Jackson. Don’t try working the refs already. There will be no “Jordan” calls for faver.

  32. PatricktheDookie says: Sep 5, 2010 5:16 PM

    Unfortunately, Childress is correct this time. Some of those hits on Favre were absurd.

  33. Bob Nelson says: Sep 5, 2010 5:17 PM

    There was nothing illegal. The tapes have been reviewed and reviewed and the calls made were correct.
    viklings always whine about not having any trophies. They think someone else is always to blame except their own incompetent selves.

  36. Nosredna says: Sep 5, 2010 5:20 PM

    BTW dumbass……making a statement of fact is not complaining.

  37. mike says: Sep 5, 2010 5:20 PM

    It’s the playoffs. It ain’t no regular-season game. If you lose, you go home. We take no pity on them. Do they expect us to? I don’t care about no Brooking. He can say whatever he wants to say.”

  38. va4favre says: Sep 5, 2010 5:21 PM

    Simmons of ESPN had a story saying how Rodgers and some Packers were at a film festival cheering for the Saints including when Favre got hurt. Rodgers is close to Brees so that is not a surprise but openly cheering for Favre to get hit is another. Rodgers has a vicious side which will soon be exposed along with why he was at a film festival on the first place.

  39. DanRooney says: Sep 5, 2010 5:23 PM

    Doesn’t matter Bree will be placed on IR early because he thought pleasing xbox and playstation fans were more important than football.

  40. bump says: Sep 5, 2010 5:23 PM

    now its time to cue the vikqueens ,, last year is over , they all have different players ,,, they lost get over it ,,, maybe they will have luck this year ,, ap hold on to the ball,, brett don’t pass to saints defenders LOL whooooooooooooooooo datttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt

  41. Gaiterdan65 says: Sep 5, 2010 5:24 PM

    Chilly may be right, but that’s besides the point. The two people, who are MORE right, are Favre and Brees. QB’s are going to get hit, and defensive players love hitting them.
    Moreover, it’s good strategy to try to knock the other teams starting QB out of the game, and I think that can be done without the, “intent to injure” that Chilly is insinuating.
    How can you try to knock someone out of a game without intentianaly trying to hurt them. Again, the key word is intent, you can intend to knock the shit out of someone, to the point that they don’t want to / are incapable of playing, without intending to injure.
    Clear, confusing?
    Anyway, it seems the only one with his gash leaking about this whole issue is Chilly. The boys taking the hits understand the D really does want them out of games, but probably doesn’t want them to suffer some horrible injury.

  42. ozzie41 says: Sep 5, 2010 5:29 PM

    As little as Chilly knows about football, he is right to be pissed about premeditated cheap shots with intent to injure his quarterback. he is also right to keep it in the awareness of the league and the officials. Contrary to what some Saints fans say it’s not part of the game and if it happened to Brees they would be complaining, too…..loudly.

  43. bump says: Sep 5, 2010 5:30 PM

    I hate to say it, but Chilly is right…..and the video tape proves it. There were late hits and player(s) have admitted publically they were attempting to take Favre out of the game. why take farve out the game ,, he throws to our defence backs ,, hope he makes all 4 quarters so he can throw us at least 3 more LOL

  44. PerryMason says: Sep 5, 2010 5:32 PM

    “You know what he’s doing here — he’s putting the officials on notice so they’ll be a little quicker to throw the flag when Faver gets hit without the ball in his hands. Smart move.”

    For all you cry baby bitch Queens fans. What a pathetic joke of a franchise you have. Guess what, Saints have a ring, how many you got? lol I got something for Dan Hampton as well. I hope the Saints DE’s rip through Favre’s legs like the planes did to the twin towers since you like to reference national disasters you prick! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qais_eGMnWk

    How naive are you…what is Favre suppose to say…dude’s a warrior.
    Just like Strahan’s recording breaking sack on Favre was legit, cuz Brett said so.

  47. Kennebec123 says: Sep 5, 2010 5:38 PM

    I have been a Vikings fan for about 30 years. You know what? I have seen Vikings players hit other quarterbacks below the knees too.
    My problem with it was the officals didn’t call it and it happened on a interception in the red zone.
    Of course the Saints were going after Farve. That was there plan. Brees is a schmuck to make a statement like that. He obviously didn’t watch any film of the game.
    Were some of the hits illegal? Yes. Was it intentional or a player just getting caught up in the game, going a 100 miles an hour and not letting up? Probablly! It is the officials and the league that are responsible for that one.
    Oh and by the way …
    lsutiger3008 s is a lost cause LOL
    I think Chilly is off base also.
    And I hate the Saints too!
    Hope you all enjoy the season. I have been dying for it to start again.

  48. NFLFollower says: Sep 5, 2010 5:38 PM

    Well Brees essentially said he’s fine w/ taking some of the cheap shots that Favre took in the championship game last year…..if Allen or Kevin Williams hits him like that he may end up knocked out of the game! Not a Vikings or Saints fan, but if I were the Vikings D-line, I’d do everything the Saints do late and maybe a bit more.

  49. BENCHTJACK says: Sep 5, 2010 5:39 PM

    vikingcole…. you are the man! Skol Vikings! I hope the Saints run out of stretchers for the injured and I pray Drew is the first to be carried out with his eyes rolled to the back of his cracked skull!

  50. SaintsBaby says: Sep 5, 2010 5:39 PM

    Yea, I am sure Brees is worried about the same defense that could not lay a finger on him last game.

  51. Pervy *Harvin says: Sep 5, 2010 5:40 PM

    Of course they were. now you go do the same. eye for an eye seems the only way to win respect in the nfl.

  53. seahawkfan says: Sep 5, 2010 5:49 PM

    Chilly needs to grow a pair. It was an illegal hit but what can the league do about it now. Its over and I think he needs to quit crying about it. Mistakes happen.

  54. Green n' Gold says: Sep 5, 2010 5:50 PM

    Shit happens when your star DE acts like a deuce bag after every sack. Get ready for round 2 Chilly!

  55. SpartaChris says: Sep 5, 2010 5:52 PM

    Sure, some of the hits the Saints put on Favre LAST SEASON were illegal. The NFL agreed and fined them accordingly.
    However, I question Chilly’s focus going into this game. The fact that he’s still dwelling on a game they lost LAST SEASON instead of focusing on winning the game THIS SEASON makes me believe he’s more concerned with potential hits Favre might take rather than actually winning the game.
    Eh well. I like what Sean Payton had to say:
    “Ultimately, two weeks later [we] played in Miami for the Super Bowl.”

  60. 2Blackaces81 says: Sep 5, 2010 6:09 PM

    I would like to preface this by saying I love the “Kings”. Yes, the Saints did take several cheap shots, but CHILLY u f’n idiot…why dont u complain about leaving AP in after fumbling a million times, or having 12 men in the huddle right after a time out??? Or y dont u complain about how u traded our only legitmate backup QB for a conditional draft pick? Or complain about Bryant McFatass getting lit up like a phatty on every freaking play and letting Favre get killed! Stop blaming other people for us loosing a game we should have won!

  61. Allliiieee says: Sep 5, 2010 6:14 PM

  64. Sow Crates says: Sep 5, 2010 6:21 PM

    There were 3 calls the NFL decided were late hits on Brett Favre in that game, two on Bobby McCray alone. The other was on Hargrove for a body-slam.
    Bobby McCray is no longer a New Orleans Saint.
    After a full 2 seasons where most NFL fans complained about the ridiculous fluff that had been called as roughing the passer, including railing Brady for his call-seeking, the NFL kept the playoffs as physical as possible by being stingy with flags.
    In popular opinion, NFL positioning on QB health and the integrity of a contact sport is a lose-lose game.

  65. myasylum says: Sep 5, 2010 6:22 PM

    I even thought the Saints were pretty dirty in the Green Bay as well… I think it was “in the cards” that the Saints were to get to the Super bowl.

    Manipulation of the referees only works if you have credibility Chilly…that’s why you were canned as an offensive coordinator in college and that’s why you never did play calling in Philly.
    You’re laughed at because you’re the guy who kissed Favre’s rear-end and because you stuck with “your guy” Tavaris.

    Someone took their bitter pills today. Besides half the people on PFT.
    I’d take a decade or two of futility for one SB win. I’m sure a lot of franchises would; say Cleveland, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Buffalo, and so on. Some of them are working on it–Tampa and St. Louis.
    The Vikings would rather have one SB win and a decade or two of mediocrity, instead of complaints about officiating and coming up small in big games.

    Yea, I am sure Brees is worried about the same defense that could not lay a finger on him last game.
    I guess we need to spell it out for all the idiot Aints fans.
    The reason Brees didn’t get hit was the Vikings defense followed the rules and didn’t continue on to drill his ass AFTER the whistle when the OL quit their blocks. If the Saints have one late hit it will open the flood gates and there could be some serious injuries on both teams. Last years game is over but not forgotten and there is a lot of bad blood between these two teams.

  76. Citizen Strange says: Sep 5, 2010 6:40 PM

    Drew Brees is far from bullet proof himself.

  77. SpartaChris says: Sep 5, 2010 6:46 PM

    Here’s the other thing I find funny- The utter hypocrisy of Minnescrota Vikedweeb fans. It’s OK for you to continue to whine and whimper about Favre getting his ass kicked in last season’s NFCCG, but not ok for Packers fans to correctly point out the botched helmet to helmet and face mask calls on Rodgers against the Cardinals as reasons contributing to our loss.
    Here’s a newsflash, idiots- The shots on Favre didn’t cause you to lose the game. Not when you fumble the ball 6 times and then try and stick 12 men in the huddle at the end of the game, putting you out of field goal range.
    The Saints were the better team that day. God willing, they’ll be the better team this Thursday too.

  78. RobF2010 says: Sep 5, 2010 6:47 PM

    “Oh, they were definitely going out of their way to injure Favre. The most blatant example was on a HANDOFF, in which Favre gave the ball to Peterson, and was rolling out AWAY from the direction of the run, and was creamed by a Saints player.”
    That’s what a defensive player is supposed to do. That should have never been called. He kept rolling out so the defense would think he still had the ball. He was still in the play. That was a bogus call.

  79. CharmCity207 says: Sep 5, 2010 6:47 PM

    Of course they were trying to take him out of the game. That’s what NFL defenses do – they hit people as hard as they can. Get over yourself Chilly and all Viking’s fans.

  80. CaptainMarvel says: Sep 5, 2010 6:50 PM

    I’ll be honest and come straight out and say it. I hope Brees suffers a season-ending injury, and I don’t care if the hit is late or not.

  81. badfish69 says: Sep 5, 2010 6:52 PM

    Mike McCarthy makes one comment about an illegal helmet to helmet no call and Viking fan gets their panties all bunched calling him a whiner, but Chilly has cried about this four times since then, and he is just stating fact? It’s over with. Maybe they should worry about not getting blown out on national TV instead of crying over one missed call seven months ago.

They have a dumb ass coach, that can’t coach little league….12 people in a huddle…U have 3:00 minutes on the clock and they throw the ball instead of them running the ball with a running back like Adrian Peterson… That’s dumb ass COACHING to me!!!!

  88. mike3775 says: Sep 5, 2010 7:15 PM

    Hey Chilly, care to explain why you had defensive players who failed drug testing playing all season long instead of doing their NFL mandated suspensions? Oh yeah, thats right, they got a local judge( a Crybaby fan) to put a hold on the suspensions, so that his team wouldn’t lose key pieces during the season.
    Make sure you have no skeletons in your locker room Chilly, before calling out the refs for blown calls, because you have players who have yet to sit out suspensions because they found a local judge to make the NFL back down

  89. MrHumble says: Sep 5, 2010 7:19 PM

    If any Saints fan would care to answer a simple question without any trash talkin’ crap. Forget about the NFC championship game…….seriously think about this ….How would you, as a fan, react if Drew Brees was knocked out of the first game and the season by a late hit by a Vikings player who would subsequently be fined by the league?
    Simple question, I’m just curious what your reaction would be. I have read all your posts and how you feel being on one side of the coin, but truthfully, how would you feel on the other side? Anything other than simply answering the question is just a feeble attempt at trash talk.

    I believe the Saints were fined a total of $30K for hits in Vikings game last season. All of this whining is a bit ironic. The Vikings have racked up some nice fines in the past themselves.
    Jared Allen was fined $50K for a hit on Matt Schaub.
    http://wcco.com/vikings/vikings.jared.allen.2.859227.html
    “The NFL notes that Allen was fined previously this season (Chicago game), and they note that he actually went after Schaub’s knee twice.” There was no flag on the play.
    Ray Edwards was fined that season $25K and his response was “We chose to play this game. We don’t cry when we get cracked unexpectedly. That fine is what it is. Just got to go out there and play ball and have fun.”
    “http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/27895004/”
    Jared Allen was fined $25K for a hit on Aaron Rodgers.
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3712895
    “Childress defended his player, arguing that the speed at which Allen rushes makes it difficult to stop in time.”
    I think the speed at which the Saints players rushed at Brett Favre made it difficult to stop in time.

    Oh, they were definitely going out of their way to injure Favre. The most blatant example was on a HANDOFF, in which Favre gave the ball to Peterson, and was rolling out AWAY from the direction of the run, and was creamed by a Saints player.
    People like Florio are pretty much assuming Favre won’t make it through the season. What they forget is, aside from the Saints game, and the 49ers game early last year, the Vikings offensive line, and offensive schemes, did a great job of keeping Favre from taking big hits. The media loves to talk up that vaunted Packers “#1 ranked” defense as a reason why THEY should be the team to beat in the NFC North. Funny, that awesome defense didn’t even breathe on Favre in 2 games last season. Oh, and their best pass rusher (Aaron Kampman) doesn’t play for them anymore.
    ————————————————–
    Hay dumb ass,how much did A.Kampman play for them last year? Not much since he was out IR, and when he did play he was non-factor due to he wasn’t very good in the 3-4. HE was pretty good when he played in the 4-3.

    I don’t think the Vikings have ever lost a playoff game according to the fans. They were always robbed by the refs, or some other excuse. I guess last year it was because the mean defense kept hitting the QB.

  103. Ambrose says: Sep 5, 2010 8:33 PM

    Favre got hit late once…that’s it. The other “late” hit, was actually a weak attempt on his part at blocking after he pitched the ball. He was no longer the QB at that point…he was a blocker. Get the hell out of the way or take your lumps. He took his lumps and STILL got a call out of it (for reasons unknown) except that the ref felt sorry for him…even helped him up. He’s a tough dudeouche.

    U2Roberts, you said it perfectly but you can’t expect Viking fans to be logical. They think there is one set of rules for them, and one for everybody else. That’s why they’ve been pissing and moaning for 7 month’s over this. If you hit their QB late you’re dirty, if Jared Allen and Ray Edwards hit some other QB late they’re just playing the game. Viking fans whine like no other fan base in all of sports. At this point we should all be used to it. It’s been going on for 50 years.

    MrHumble, Here is your answer. I’d feel like crap but I’d sure as hell be over it 7 months later. You keep saying it was an illegal hit. Did you ask yourself this when Jared Allen took out Matt Schaub at the knees twice in the same game? Of course you didn’t because when it’s your guy doing the hitting it’s fine. You want it both ways, applaud your guys for doing it but it’s a horror when someone else does it. HYPOCRISY

  110. tjacksgay says: Sep 5, 2010 9:08 PM

    Most Vikings fans agree that the 12 men in the huddle penalty cost the Viking a win. Mr. Noodle is clearly trying to get a few calls from the officials in next weeks rematch.
    I hope that they get even with a couple of late hits on Brees. Then maybe the Saints coaches will think twice about bragging that they planned to take out Favre.

  111. PurplePeopleBeaters says: Sep 5, 2010 9:21 PM

    Imagine with all of the hype if one QB goes down the other team better pull their starter out of the game.
    Hard to imagine either team making it to the NFC championship game if their QB gets injured seriously.
    Guessing the over/under for fines might be around 150k for the game. Especially since fines will be heavier than normal due to the build up. Might even take the long shot of a suspension for someone.

    MrHumble : You say Brees has talked trash for seven months and has “changed his tune” — please give me one quote from the past months from Brees proving your case. Brees has not commented on it until now. Stop making crap up.
    MrSteve: If Drew Brees’ comments are off and he is a liar, than what does that make Brett Favre? In case you missed it, he pretty much says the same thing as Brees – that it was blown out of proportion.

    Maybe if the Vikes O-Line could protect better this may not have been an issue. But if the Vikes D can get to Brees the exact same way the Saints got to Favre, we know Saints fans will whine about dirty play just like Vikes fans hated the way their D treated Favre. I don’t wish for injuries to anyone but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Brees go down sometime this season. He is on the cover of Madden after all.

    Goodness Chilly..whining about the refs huh? Sure, I admit some of the officiating in the NFC Title Game was questionable but that’s life. Your team lost because of 5 turnovers,not the officials.
    Every team in the league could whine about the officials at some point. Here are a few off of the top of my head:
    Jets vs Seahawks in the Vinny Testaverde game back in 1998 I believe: Vinny did not get across the goalline.
    Packers vs 49ers 1998 NFC WilCard Game: Jerry Rice’s non fumble lead to TO’s great catch. Rice certainly did fumble on the last drive.
    If I were Chilly, I would not be focused on the officiating from the NFC Title Game, I’d be worried about stopping the defending champs at their place on Thursday.

    The Saints were completely bush league in the NFC championship game. They were hitting Favre late every chance they got. It was mostly ignored, because of the feel good “Katrina” angle.
    The Vikings overcame it, and out played the Saints for most of the game, but Peterson’s turnovers cost them the win.

    Simmons of ESPN had a story saying how Rodgers and some Packers were at a film festival cheering for the Saints including when Favre got hurt. Rodgers is close to Brees so that is not a surprise but openly cheering for Favre to get hit is another. Rodgers has a vicious side which will soon be exposed along with why he was at a film festival on the first place.
    —————————————————–
    The quote never stated he cheered when Favre got hurt, just that he was vehemently cheering against him, so stop making shit up.
    And why shouldn’t he? Favre’s last minute BS made life hell for him in 2007. He went to a guy who the whole fan base was accepting as the starter, to 3/4 of them hating him. Plus it is well known Favre resented the fact that the team even took him in the first place.

    I believe his name was… Brett Favre.
    What goes around, comes around.

    Yea, I am sure Brees is worried about the same defense that could not lay a finger on him last game.
    I guess we need to spell it out for all the idiot Aints fans.
    The reason Brees didn’t get hit was the Vikings defense followed the rules and didn’t continue on to drill his ass AFTER the whistle when the OL quit their blocks. If the Saints have one late hit it will open the flood gates and there could be some serious injuries on both teams. Last years game is over but not forgotten and there is a lot of bad blood between these two teams.
    —-
    What game were you watching? The reason the Saints weren’t called for more than 1 late hit during the game was because they were actually in the backfield and in Brett’s face as he was throwing the ball. The Vikings, on the other hand, were never even close. So if by “followed the rules” you mean “were unable to penetrate the line and create pressure on the QB”, then yes, that is the reason.
    As has been said, EVERY defensive player wants to hurt EVERY offensive player. If you honestly believe that the Vikings didn’t want to hurt Brees – even last year – then you are a naive little fool. When you’re playing for a shot at the Super Bowl, would you rather your opponent be led by Drew Brees, or by whoever his backup is? Would you rather face Brett Favre or Tavaris Jackson? Peyton Manning or Jim Sorgi’s replacement?
    It’s a no-brainer, the backup is on the bench for a reason, so if you can force the starter out your chances to win go up. While a defensive player wouldn’t go out and try to snap a guy’s leg, I guarantee you he’s going to hit him as hard as possible and make the offensive player think twice about getting up.

    Vikings have always blamed their loses on referees and anything else they can come up with. It’s never that they played poorly. It’s getting really old. Wish they would all grow up and be the men they’re suppose to be.

    There has never been a more delusional bunch than Crykings fans. I used to be one, so I know!!! Anyway, doesn’t anyone else notice that the “12 men on the field” situation hasn’t been mentioned even one time throughout this thread? Or how about the fact that New Orleans outgained the Vikings on kickoff and punt return yardage to the tune of 166 to 50, putting them in prime field position repeatedly so their offense didn’t have to gain as many yards as the Vikings to get touchdowns.

    That’s not true at all, they held themselves accountable for the mistakes they made, read pretty much ALL of the post-game interviews from that game and they all say it. Unfortunately you guys just want to believe what you want to believe to make yourselves and your team look good, and your rivals that much worse. For that reason, you people should be in politics, because you and the PFT talking heads are very good at spin.

    Vikes fans, flood the NFL with calls 212 450 2000 ask for PR – they’re in charge of officiating, tell them what you think of Saints trying to illegally hurt Favre, They listen and take calls seriously
    _________________
    YES! DO THIS! While you’ve got them on the phone, let them know that you don’t approve of the NFL being a rigged sport because they want to hand the game to the saints from katrina that happened 5 years ago. It’s just not fair.
    Also, let them know that the Saints shouldn’t be allowed to hit Favre and that last year’s superbowl victory was just a fluke and the real winners are the fans of the minnesota vikings.
    Other points to mention when you viking fans call them…
    -9/11 was an inside job
    -man did not really land on the moon
    -WWE is real.
    -you’ll fax them the photo that you took which proves that bigfoot is real
    -your sister is one helluva woman and you should be allowed to marry. Can Goodell get his wife to go back to foxnews and do a story on that to get some media attention?

    1.- name a DE who, in 2009, got fined at least $75,000 Dlls for illegal hits on QBs.
    I’ll give you a hint: he wears #69 and plays for the Vikings.
    The next one is in 2 parts, so pay attention:
    2.- Name the coach who said “it’s our offense’s job to score points, it’s their defense’s job to stop us”
    2a.- Now, name the DC who says “it is our defense’s job to get to the QB, is their job to stop us”.

    Childress’ constant complaining about the Saints’ dirty tactics is getting as tiresome as the Democrats constant “Blame George Bush” mantra.
    If the Vikings lose tonight and nobody lays a hand on Favre, what will his excuse be this time?
    Eventually, Childress needs to do what I keep waiting for the Democrats to do…stop blaming somebody else for your problems and admit that your team just isn’t as good as you thought they were!
