Drew Brees: We’ll see the Seahawks again and play better

breeswilson AP

The Seahawks’ Monday night win over the Saints makes it almost certain that Seattle will have home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. But New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees isn’t ready to concede that winning in Seattle in January is going to be impossible for his team.

Instead, Brees said after the game that he thinks he and his teammates can play better in a future meeting with the Seahawks.

“We know they are a team we are going to have to deal with in the future,” Brees said, via NOLA.com. “We are going to have to find a way to play better against these guys when that time comes.”

Saints running back Mark Ingram may have had the most accurate assessment of what happened on Monday night: “We got our butts smacked around pretty good tonight,” Ingram said.

The biggest question facing the Saints is whether they can improve enough in six or seven weeks that if they travel to Seattle again in the playoffs, they’ll avoid getting their butts smacked again. Right now, the gap between the Seahawks and the Saints looks huge.

    No you won’t Drew. Seattaderall is a fluke and isn’t reaching the Superbowl letting alone winning it. #ZeroSuperbowls

    I hope so, would love to stomp you again Drew! You may play better, but you will then only lose by less?

  4. crisper57 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:05 PM

    Who Dat? Dat’s the team that can’t win a game out West! Dat’s who!

    “Better” may mean you only lose 33-7. That’s not saying much.

    No you won’t. You need to figure out a way to win your own division first. Otherwise you’ll be playing your playoff games on the road.

    Serious question: when was last time the front-runner won the Super Bowl?

  10. barbeaux says: Dec 3, 2013 1:10 PM

    The saints often don’t play well outdoors in cold weather…

  11. mvp43 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:11 PM

    Umm Drew- If you need an explanation….

    Your team is not nearly as good as Seattle on both sides of the ball. Even at home, the score would be maybe 34-21.

  12. ingraven says: Dec 3, 2013 1:12 PM

    Saints vs Broncos in the SuperBowl. NFL is rigged so the match is set in stone already.

  13. Gdelarocks says: Dec 3, 2013 1:13 PM

    Remember a few years ago when the Pats embarassed the Jets late in the regular season, then lost to them on their own field on the divisional round? Remember last year when the Broncos embarassed the Ravens in Denver in week 15 and then lost to them in their own house a month later?

    Point is anything is possible. The Seahawks are good, very good, no doubt about it. But their fans, the media, everyone else needs to stop acting like last night’s win was the Superbowl and focus on getting to the Superbowl.

  14. lovethelions says: Dec 3, 2013 1:13 PM

    LOL! New Orleans is a bunch of cheaters and now they are too old to be a threat.

    Thank you Seahawks….it’s nice to see the Saints go shuffling out. They won’t be back to Seattle any time soon! LOL

    Go LIONS!!!

  15. sg419 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:19 PM

    The last time a no 1 seed won the SB was the Saints. I don’t remember Seattle winning a Super Bowl, except last night, at least according to the media.

  16. thebirdofprey2 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:20 PM

    People talk about the Seattle fans and the national media has to be focused so they actually can win the Super Bowl.

    Its about the players being focused. Every week Seattle has the approach under Pete Carroll the next game is the big game. Russell Wilson preaches it at his press conference and the players each week. Its hard to believe it when Tampa Bay or a struggling Falcons team but they come out of there with a win.

    We fans all know what talent and the way this team is playing. But I have listened to these players talk and anything less than a Super Bowl will be a failure to them. 2 more years until Russell contract needs to get signed. They are still the 3rd youngest roster in NFL. I hope there will be multiple cracks at the big one.

  17. jetsmmt says: Dec 3, 2013 1:21 PM

    At least Brees doesn’t have to get better at feigning being hurt. Little wimp.

  18. @HowdyDoobie says: Dec 3, 2013 1:23 PM

    I don’t think so. The weather is only going to get worse in Seattle sir.

  19. nyjetsfan08 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:23 PM

    I think everyone needs to calm down. Any Given Sunday. There is still a lot of football left to be played. Seattle looks very formidable now. Things change quickly in this league, week to week. If they lose in the playoffs, at home, everyone will be shocked. But you know what? That’s the way this league is. Teams that shouldn’t lose win and teams that shouldn’t lose win. It happens. I won’t be shocked if they make the Super Bowl, but I won’t be that surprised if they lose at home in the playoffs. This is not a 7-game series. It’s a 1-game series in the playoffs. All you need is one off day to be kicked out of the playoffs. Certainly, the Seahawks are a favorite to make it to the Super Bowl. But it’s not over yet. That’s why they play the games.

  20. Go-Hawks! says: Dec 3, 2013 1:23 PM

    Yes. We all get it. The Seahawks have Zero Superbowls. But at least the Seahawks have been to a Superbowl in the last decade. When was the last time the Redskins had a team good enough to get to a Superbowl? 1991? Yeah, that’s right. Us Seahawks fans are very impressed by your teams trophy case, but what have you done lately?? Nothing. That’s what.

    Bandwagoners aside, most Seahawks fans have been with the team through thick and thin from the start and we are galvanized by it. We’ve hung tough with the team through seasons with only 2 wins. And we’ll stand by our team even if they don’t make it to a Superbowl this year. Because we are true fans and we love this game and our team. And this year, we have a better chance of winning a Superbowl than most teams.

    Oh and by the way… The Redskins have had 5 PED suspensions since 2011.

    It’s not like he was talking smack. I thought he was very cool & humble in his post-game presser. What’s he supposed to say, “we have no chance to beat these guys”?

  23. wannabear says: Dec 3, 2013 1:27 PM

    It’s just one game. Come playoffs, anything is possible.

  24. sb44champs says: Dec 3, 2013 1:29 PM

    Right now, the gap between the Seahawks and the Saints looks huge.
    ===========================
    Its only as big as the advantage the Seahawks gain with what should be an illegally constructed stadium designed to pipe the crowd noise onto the field of play… Jacksonville would probably win 90% of their games there lol… Saints win 10 out of 10 against Seahawks in Superdome, that’s the difference

  25. trollhammer20 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:32 PM

    Anything can happen, and in a rematch, it’s likely Brees would have a better game. But it’s the NO defense that really needs to step up.

    Last night, they clearly were so worried about Lynch they oversold on stopping the run, and let big pass plays beat them. Seattle has the receivers to make plays down the field, and putting nine in the box to stop Lynch left the Saints exposed.

    Of course, if you do put more emphasis on stopping the pass, then Beast Mode can take over the game. It’s not a pretty situation Seattle puts defenses into.

    If the Saints aren’t careful, though, they may have to go through Detroit/Philly/Dallas in the first round. Better worry about the Panthers before worrying about a possible rematch in Seattle.

    Maybe then the league will have a rule about pumping extra noise through the stadium speakers.

  29. metalhead65 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:43 PM

    drew brees is the biggest wuss in the NFL . did you see that crybaby turn to the ref and cry when the seahawk defender’s hand grazed his facemask after jumping up to knock down his pass. you would have though he had been hit again by the 49er’s defense by his reaction. he got the flag but come the way he acted was ridiculous.

  30. glmore says: Dec 3, 2013 1:45 PM

    Brees is wrong….Steve Smith said after week 1 that the Panthers would see Seattle in Jan….maybe Drew meant he would see them on tv

  31. johnclaytonsponytail says: Dec 3, 2013 1:45 PM

    Saints layed an egg last night but it doesnt take away from what were capable of. Every team has an off day and we arent the first ones to do it at the Sausage Link. Any given Sunday. And how about them breaking a noise record with megaphones aiding? I thought there is a NFL rule for using noise makers?

  32. greenbaypackersowner says: Dec 3, 2013 1:46 PM

    And behind the scenes Lil’ Drew is resurrecting the bounty program cuz he knows that’s the only way the Saints can win a Super Bowl.

  33. myeaglescantwin says: Dec 3, 2013 1:47 PM

    I think that , if anything, Seattle is just getting better.
    They are healthy on the OL now, that defense has come together even more, and Wilson is playing like a top 5 QB.

    I don’t know what team outside of the Broncos that will be able to give them a run for their money…
    especially not in Seattle.

  34. realfootballfan says: Dec 3, 2013 1:51 PM

    I don’t know, Drew. Something tells me your team would get run through 10 out of 10 times if you played them that many times in a row. If I were a Saint fan, I’d be thanking the NFL referees for that questionable call on Ahmad Brooks that helped them win that game because based on how they’ve played against every team that gets physical with them so far this season, Carolina and possibly even Tampa might be hanging 2 or 3 more losses on you, which would not be a good thing with Arizona right in the mix for the last playoff spot.

  35. patriotwayspygate says: Dec 3, 2013 1:52 PM

    The Cheathawks are tainted by their cheating ways. A team that endorses the use of performance enhancing drugs should be stripped of all their accomplishments.

  36. oreo51 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:53 PM

    The league should outlaw those ear plugs. That is a piece of equipment that has not been authorized for use in the NFL. The crowd noise is a part of the game and one of the reasons people go to the stadium rather than stay home. Just as the league protects the QB they need to protect the fans role in the game.

  37. stealthjunk says: Dec 3, 2013 1:53 PM

    Very reminiscent of the Broncos demolishing the Ravens late in the regular season last year, then the Ravens beating them in the playoffs. Just because a team has one bad game doesn’t mean they have no chance the next time, especially with the benefit of watching tape and figuring out ways to improve.

  38. packergator says: Dec 3, 2013 1:58 PM

    It just doesn’t seem like Payton’s offense is built for outdoors bad weather, does it? I won’t count them out, but it’s interesting that in their Super Bowl year, they had home-field and played their two playoff games in their dome. Then they played the Super Bowl in a warm city on a dry night. When they played outdoors in the wild-card round the next year, they lost.

  39. 49ersmartinez52 says: Dec 3, 2013 1:59 PM

    I don’t think New Orleans has a chance at beating Seattle, they couldn’t do it when they were the defending Super Bowl champs and Seattle was the worst team to ever enter the playoffs at 7-9. They are definitely not going to do it now when Seattle is the best team in football and have Russell Wilson, that kid is an amazing qb and is the only reason I can stand the Seahawks.

  40. pacnw66 says: Dec 3, 2013 2:00 PM

    “Oh and by the way… The Redskins have had 5 PED suspensions since 2011.”

    Your point? The Seahawks lead the league in PED suspensions. What is it now 9? With Sherman’s overturned on a technicality. Not that he wasn’t using, just that he successfully had it overturned.
    I suppose you are proud of that statistic?

  41. juliusanonymous says: Dec 3, 2013 2:01 PM

    I want a pair of these speakers the Seahawks are supposedly using to reach 138 decibels. Last I checked, no speaker driver ever made could reach anything close to that sound level. The loudest “speaker” ever made was an air raid siren, and the loudest of the air raid sirens reached about 135 decibels. From Wikipedia:

    “…the loudest confirmed siren ever produced was the Chrysler Air Raid Siren, producing 138 dB at 100 feet. The Chrysler Air Raid Siren used a 180 hp V-8 Hemi engine to drive the siren and weighed 5543 lb.[2] ”

    It’s hilarious being an engineer and listening to other teams’ jealous fans make physically impossible claims, and knowing how wrong (and dumb) they are. Unless you haters are claiming the Seahawks were using an air raid siren, you should realize the natural sound created by the fans would have drowned out any speaker system on Earth.

    You haters crack me up. Feels GOOD being on top, and being the loudest and most passionate fans in the NFL.

    Lets see, amphetamines for the game, then chill afterward with some weed, all the while listening to the pumped in fan noise on the PA system.

  45. jaltreality says: Dec 3, 2013 2:13 PM

    I hope these people claiming PEDs + pumped in fan noises aren’t Saints fan. As a Saints fan, you’ve got to admit that just happened: we got our asses kicked in every stage. Couldn’t make anything happen on special teams, our offense kept shooting itself in the foot with penalties, their defense was lights out even with 2 of their corners out, and we dared them to win without Lynch and they did, easily.

    But I’m glad we suffered this loss now, and hopefully not later in the playoffs. Hopefully the Saints will learn from this.

  46. nycscott says: Dec 3, 2013 2:17 PM

    “The stadium has fake noise”
    “SEAdderall has never won a Super Bowl”
    “Pete the Cheat”

    Excuses, whine, whine some more.

    FACT: Saints lost big on national TV to the Seahawks. Big. You lost, it happens. Drew Brees is a classy guy, Saint’s fans, not SEAU much.

  47. nawlinssaints1956 says: Dec 3, 2013 2:27 PM

    Seattle gets credit for a well played game; the Saints deserved to lose last night. Still, it is just one game. Time for the Saints to focus on beating the Panthers, which is the next team on the schedule. One game at a time, kids; the playoffs will be here soon enough…

  48. johnclaytonsponytail says: Dec 3, 2013 2:32 PM

    Pumped in noise and megaphones being used and some idiot thinks that earplugs should be against the rules? How about not using megaphones to beat a stupid noise record? I know noise makers are illegal in NFL stadiums. Let us do that in the Superdome and see whos the loudest

  49. natepalmer1 says: Dec 3, 2013 2:36 PM

    Hey Drew, get past the Panthers first…

  50. raiderlyfe510 says: Dec 3, 2013 2:50 PM

    Drew Brees needs to knock it off. Those cats couldn’t even beat a 7-9 Seahawks team in Seattle in 2010.

  51. thatwasntsological says: Dec 3, 2013 2:50 PM

    BREES May be right, but unfortunately for him if they do see them again the Seahawks will be home again so it’s not going to matter much. And I’m not a Seahawks fan by any means but it’s pretty obvious that they’re not losing at home anytime soon. I mean last night’s game was supposed to be a tight match, and Seahawks pulverized the saints. It wasn’t even a competition!

  52. realfootballfan says: Dec 3, 2013 2:54 PM

    stealthjunk,

    No, it’s not. The Saints simply don’t match up well with Seattle; the Ravens were ravaged with injuries and clearly were going through an identity crisis on offense with the Cam Cameron thing coming to a head.

    The Saints are doing it on defense with smoke and mirrors, and they have never won a playoff game away from the Super dome. Again, that’s never.

    Not to mention that they’ve played noticeably worse against teams with physical defenses this year going all the way back to week 2 against the lowly Bucs, the Jets, and the 49ers. Two of those teams are flat out bad, and they lost to the Jets while getting a gift call that saved them in the 49er game. They fundamentally have a problem, especially considering the top teams in their conference that they would have to go through to get to the Super Bowl play exactly that style that irks them. Even Detroit when they get out of their own way are pretty physical on defense.

  53. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 3, 2013 2:59 PM

    What a loser (sore at that) this guy is. All the excuses in the postgame, now this? You’d have to win in Seattle. You aren’t doing it. The Saints are soft front runners. Plain and simple.

  54. halkim says: Dec 3, 2013 3:00 PM

    After their big win over the Saints and their placement at the top of PFTs power rankings, Coach Carroll and Seahawk fans are excited about playing in the National Championship Game. So don’t tell them about the playoffs, it’ll hurt their mood.

    —————————————————–

    the number 1 seed from either AFC or NFC has won 23 times since the current format was adopted in 1975… or 60.5% of the time… out of a 10 team playoff

    in other words, it happens a LOT

  63. saintsly says: Dec 3, 2013 3:30 PM

    So here’s the poop guys…………. Last nights game was totally psychotic by definition. The trauma of losing the last wild card game and now this one is turning out to be my Saints kryptonite. This stigma has turned out to be a head game much like Atlanta see’s us as their Kryptonite. Until we can break the curse of the Clink and 12th Man, we will never win there but it’s not because they are better and it not because we are worse. It’s kinda like a VooDoo spell that makes my Saints feel inferior there even though they are not. Confidence is a hard thing to keep so far from home but the spell will be broken when the Hawks come to the dome and we prove us superior again.

    “I suppose you are proud of that statistic?”

    No. I’m not proud of any Seahawk player that has taken a PED. No fan worth their salt would be proud of that.

    I said that to show that it was the pot calling the kettle black. Logicalvoice spouts off about the Seahawks PED use in every Seahawks related article. And no, it’s not 9. The Seahawks have had 6 player suspensions due to PEDs since 2010. I’m not saying that because I’m okay with it, I’m just setting the record straight. If we’re going to talk about this then lets talk about facts. And the fact is that every team has problems with PEDs. So when someone goes spouting PEDhawks this or PEDhawks that, they fail to realize that the league allows a lot of legal drug use, so it’s no wonder so many players have issues with banned or illegal substances. The Seahawks aren’t perfect and Seahawks fans do not support the use PEDs.

    Serious question: when was last time the front-runner won the Super Bowl?

    —————————————————–

    the number 1 seed from either AFC or NFC has won 23 times since the current format was adopted in 1975… or 60.5% of the time… out of a 10 team playoff

    in other words, it happens a LOT
    **********
    The other side of that would be how often the number 1 seed has lost the superbowl. Or even when the number 1 seeds have played each other.
    Number 1 seed from either side definitely has its advantages.

    Right now, the gap between the Seahawks and the Saints looks huge.
    ===========================
    Its only as big as the advantage the Seahawks gain with what should be an illegally constructed stadium designed to pipe the crowd noise onto the field of play… Jacksonville would probably win 90% of their games there lol… Saints win 10 out of 10 against Seahawks in Superdome, that’s the difference

    ============================

    Waa!

    Think about this: Jimmy Graham, Marques Coltson, Kenny Stills and Lance Moore were shut down by KJ Wright, Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane.

    Who?

    Exactly.

  78. hawks77 says: Dec 3, 2013 4:26 PM

    To the folks claiming we “pipe” in our own noise, ridiculous Im responding to this, but ill just state that CLEARLY you’ve NEVER been to a game in Seattle in oh…30 years, particularly in the last 4 years. Ive been to many stadiums and many games here is what I observed. You pay for your seat in Sea, but you never sit in it, pre and halftime is about it. You cant talk to your neighbor, literally, you cannot speak to the guy/gal next to you, shoulder to shoulder you have to scream and that is 50/50 they hear you…Is the stadium designed to “create” noise? no, people create noise and until you see a game there, you just don’t get it, TV tries to get the point across but fails miserably to translate just how loud we get. I served on an aircraft carrier i.e., its like 4 F-18s simultaneously catapulting non stop while were on defense. No exaggeration…easy to hate on us when you haven’t seen/heard that in person, I get it, I respect the Saints and it wasn’t personal, its just what we do 8 times a year and God willing, in the playoffs…all your teams fans are great no doubt, we just collectively yell louder is all. Crowd noise is a legit advantage that 68,000 plus collectively understand.

  80. touchdownroddywhite says: Dec 3, 2013 4:36 PM

    Remember when Seattle won the division at 7-9 and everybody griped they got a home playoff game, and then they blasted the Saints in Seattle. Put that with last nights performance and it becomes very clear, Sean Payton doesn’t have an answer for that Seattle team….

  81. abqhawk says: Dec 3, 2013 4:40 PM

    As a Seahawk’s fan I’ve the utmost respect for NO, they are a good team as their record reflects. We know you had an off-day, happens to us all, so come on back anytime. However, be prepared for BeastQuake II and the same end result as we prepare for everyone, we take no team lightly. The Legion of Boom is ready 4U!

    Pumped in noise and megaphones being used and some idiot thinks that earplugs should be against the rules? How about not using megaphones to beat a stupid noise record? I know noise makers are illegal in NFL stadiums. Let us do that in the Superdome and see whos the loudest

    *********************************************

    Knock yourselves out. Not sure what it will prove or how much good it will do if you’re not playing any playoff games at home.

  83. shatho1 says: Dec 3, 2013 5:12 PM

    not with that Rob Ryan defense u got he is who we all knew he was lol!!!

  84. saintsallday says: Dec 3, 2013 5:27 PM

    Its disappointing the Saints couldn’t prove the doubter wrong by winning in Seattle. But I think they’ll be fine next week if that delayed flight back to new Orleans didnt delay their practice schedule. Panthers in 2 of the next 3 will be a huge test including St. Louis will prepare us. Payton is a great coach, they’ll get things figured out and get back on track into the playoffs.

    Go get um Saints!

  85. donnymacjack says: Dec 3, 2013 5:40 PM

    Judging from Brees’ post game interview you can see why/how Russell Wilson wants to emulate Drew Brees. Talk about a classy guy in defeat. He never blamed anyone else. He never pointed a finger at a coach, ref or fellow player. He simply acknowledged his team got outplayed and commented the need for them to get better when they see the Seahawks down the road.

    …/Tip o’ the hat to Brees, the Saints fans and the entire Saints organization.

  86. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 3, 2013 5:50 PM

    It isn’t about “doubters.”

    The Saints have a long track record of playing this way outside of that dome when it’s not optimal outside (so scrap those Tampa, Charlotte, and early season Chicago games, trying to lump those in to bolster the road record).

    Saints fans — the rubes that they are — are the last ones to realize that the Saints are a dome creation and aren’t going to beat anyone when it’s below 50 degrees. Never mind if there is weather.

    You are saying they are going to beat Seattle IN Seattle and even if by some miracle that they do, that they are coming here to the northeast and win in East Rutherford, where it will be 17 degrees and probably a half foot of snow on the ground?

    Seems like you need to be proven wrong. The “doubters” are justified with what they are saying. Last night was just another piece of evidence to solidify that stance.

  87. chawk12thman says: Dec 3, 2013 6:02 PM

    I really appreciate the words of Go-Hawks: For the most part, NFL and specifically Seahawk Fans, do not support anyone using PED’s illegally, participating in illegal substance abuse, cheating, head hunting or trying to hurt another player intentionally illegally, etc…….

    Lets talk football.

    Go Hawks!

  88. spycam56 says: Dec 3, 2013 6:18 PM

    Funny how comments on here from N.O. Faints fans talk about “anything could happen if the Saints play Seattle again in the playoffs”….WRONG!!!

    If you are nothing but feeble in the BIGGEST GAME YOU WILL PLAY IN THE REGULAR SEASON, HOW IN THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU’LL FARE IN A PLAYOFF GAME!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Seriously, do you think just because it is a playoff game somehow Seattle will just roll over and die, because you are the N.O. Faints!?!?!?!?!?!?!? JUST THE OPPOSITE WILL HAPPEN…Seattle, will most likely not call off the dogs after the 3rd Qtr and run up the score to 55 – 7!!! Just to send a message, “Wake up Fainters, this is not 2010!”

  89. trippymane says: Dec 3, 2013 6:24 PM

    Lmao we are without Harvin, Rice, Thurmond, and Browner. And we still embarrassed the saints. Russell Wilson without a doubt the MVP. He doesn’t have his top 2 receivers and had a horrible o line almost all season and His defense couldn’t stop the run for like 5 games straight.

  90. darkneptune73 says: Dec 3, 2013 6:50 PM

    Brees should be asking his team an explanation why his team sucked.

    The Seahawks are good, very good, no doubt about it. But their fans, the media, everyone else needs to stop acting like last night’s win was the Superbowl and focus on getting to the Superbowl.
    ———————————————
    But that’s all Seattle fans know. They get overly excited about any win over a decent team. That’s all they have to cling to.

  93. mrlaloosh says: Dec 3, 2013 7:07 PM

    Kudos to the Seahawks. I’m a huge Saints fan but that was as a complete game as I have ever seen. Why isn’t Russell Wilson mentioned for league MVP? This guy is the real deal. Incredible talent.
    Hope my Saints get a do-over in the playoffs. We’ll see.

  94. cruiseon says: Dec 3, 2013 7:38 PM

    “Maybe then the league will have a rule about pumping extra noise through the stadium speakers.”

    The NFL does have rules concerning this and it is not allowed and it is done at CenturyLink field in Seattle. Jealousy and hate-filled losers persist in their attempts at discrediting the Seahawks in any under-handed way the can, from exaggerating PED use, to badmouthing their coach, and lying about piped-in noise. It only speaks to the lack of character of the trailer-trash making the claims, and the gullible fools who believe them.

  95. razzol says: Dec 3, 2013 7:47 PM

    uh..Seattle is undefeated ? or have they lost this year…same with Saints. Things change any given week…

    —————-
    They were in the Kingdome.

    You knew it as “Thunderdome”.

  97. txnative61 says: Dec 3, 2013 10:53 PM

    The 0fer Buccaneers came in and almost beat them, so the possibility exists, under the right circumstances. IF they stay healthy and don’t take victory’s for granted, even at home, they can make some noise in the playoffs. Lots of football before the Superbowl.

  98. mossking says: Dec 4, 2013 1:02 AM

    The Saints simply do not have enough defense. They are better then last year, but not that great.

  99. dboynola216 says: Dec 4, 2013 10:42 AM

    You Seahawks fans are great really yea your team won last night but what’s that say about a city who’s team wins a regular season game at home and gets all excited like they won their third super bowl in as many years c’mon 12th man you all know the boys from the bayou are coming back soon and gonna give you fits I just hope you people handle this let down that’s coming this year

  100. cri33 says: Dec 4, 2013 12:57 PM

    dboynola216 ..the Seattle is 11-1? so far. I would say that is something to cheer about. If they were your team you would be cheering too so don’t deny it. SF did it their first year when they went 13–3. Having said that I wish the NFL championships were played on neutral ground because they are like unbeatable in that stadium and everyone knows it. Whether they can advance and win the SB is another question and will be answered in the coming weeks. In the meantime they do have something to cheer about so why throw cold water on a team that is clearly on a roll? BTW I am not a Seahawks fan. I am a SF fan.

  101. dboynola216 says: Dec 4, 2013 2:38 PM

    I’m not throwing cold water if the day comes where my saints are putt of the picture than the Seahawks are who I’m rooting for. but I see all of these posts just trashing brees and the saints cause they had a bad night. Every body knows that after that loss and the way it happened that the saints are gonna make the adjustments they have to make and beat the Panthers this week and when they see the Seahawks again that game will be an upset cause nobody in the league learns from mistakes and adjusts game plan to get a victory better than Sean Payton and co. Just sayin NO WHITE FLAGS

  102. dboynola216 says: Dec 4, 2013 2:41 PM

    All I was really trying to say is to the fans of Seattle greatness isn’t measured in regular season home games it’s measured in championships. How many rings have the Seahawks claimed ???

    You talk like people respect 2009, or as if the Saints have say, four Super Bowl wins?

  104. dboynola216 says: Dec 4, 2013 5:02 PM

    You can say what you want they have their ring the seahawks dont whether or not YOU or your people “respect” it means nothing. The fact is the saints made it to the big one and won it Seahawks haven’t and whether they will or not has yet to be seen it only takes one loss in the playoffs friend

  105. dboynola216 says: Dec 4, 2013 5:04 PM

    They only have one super bowl ring and as long as it is the fans of a team like Seattle bashing then for having a bad night one is all they have to have

  106. sallier says: Dec 4, 2013 6:26 PM

    Seahawk fans were so cute Monday night with their little purple megaphones.

  107. fanme57 says: Dec 5, 2013 2:45 AM

    Brees is a class guy, I don’t doubt the Saints can play better, even in Seattle.

    Respectfully, I don’t think they can play better enough to actually win a game in Seattle this year.

  108. jimmyjames65 says: Dec 5, 2013 6:04 AM

    Can’t cheat without the refs. Go ask Tomlin. Nevermind, he won’t come clean.
