Alvin Kamara has some choice words about Minnesota Miracle

Saints running back Alvin Kamara has a colorful way of looking at the end of last season.

And that color is primarily blue.

In an entertaining profile of the second-year back by Master Tesfatsion of Bleacher Report, Kamara riffed on the crushing end of the Saints season, in which the 17-point deficit they erased in the second half of the NFC divisional round playoff game was erased by the Minnesota Miracle.

“It’s a certain point where you f–king just do everything could do, and s–t still don’t go your way,” Kamara said. “That’s how I felt about that game. I felt like we did everything. We came all the way back, and then s–t just happened like that. That’s like some one-in-a-million-type s–t.

“I couldn’t even be mad. I was mad, of course, but it was like how does that even f–king happen? That’s not even real. It’s almost not realistic, like what the f–k?”

Somewhere, Lee Elia nods approvingly.

His greater point holds, as the Saints were on an incredible roll before Stefon Diggs‘ last-second game-winning touchdown sent the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game. And Kamara believes that momentum would have continued against the Eagles, and he clearly thinks it will continue into this season now that they’ve put it behind them.

“We’d beat the s–t out of [the Eagles] cause we was rolling,” Kamara said. “If we won [against the Vikings], I knew nobody was gonna stop us cause we came all the way back. . . .

“We know what the standard is. So, yeah, f-k Minnesota.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. I mean, not without being George Carlin.

  1. The real miracle was Saints getting a INT, then a strip sack, then converting a 4th and 10 to kick the go ahead FG. Vikings dominated them for 7 quarters last season and will do so for 4 more when they face off this year.
    SKOL!

  2. One in a million is an apt phrase for any time the Vikings win a playoff game. Would he venture a guess as to how many zeros would be needed to accurately peg the Vikings chances of winning a Superbowl?

  3. “We’d beat the s–t out of [the Eagles] cause we was rolling,” Kamara said. “If we won [against the Vikings], I knew nobody was gonna stop us cause we came all the way back. . . .“

    Im not so sure of that. Even if you take away the miracle play you would only have the Saints barely beating the Vikings. The Eagles totally blew the Vikings out of the water so I suspect they would have done the same to the Saints or at least beaten them. The Eagles had gotten into full monster mode by that point in the season.

  4. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. I mean, not without being George Carlin.… or Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor ….

  5. And Kamara believes that momentum would have continued against the Eagles, and he clearly thinks it will continue into this season now that they’ve put it behind them.
    +++++++++

    Much like the Purples, “all this momentum we have will continue forever”.

    You lost your last game, Sir. 7 months ago. There is no momentum.

    Well sure, and any other comedian that cusses. But since thats most of them you cant be expecting he should list them all. So he picked the one that actually spoke to the topic of cussing during an act.

    DUDE LOOK, those were tangible things that happened to put us in position to win, that’s called being there before and knowing how to win, im sure you remember 2009.

    How’s that trophy case looking.

  8. Really? Let’s review some facts Alvin: 1. The Vikings DESTROYED the Saints in game #1. 2. The Vikings DESTROYED the Saints for 75% of the playoff game. 3. You were GIFTED two short fields in the playoff game via a boneheaded interception and an assignment mistake leading to a blocked punt. The game shouldn’t have even been close! Grow up!

  9. It was luck AF. We all know it! Vikings fans want to delude themselves into thinking they deserve to be in the Super Bowl this year. However, if it were not for that huge gaffe by the defender. It would have been 1 playoff game….1 loss and go home. Yet, they are the preseason champs this season!

  10. He thinks Brees would’ve beaten Nick Foles?…Mebbe Wentz, who lost 2 games he started and finished, but Foles went undefeated in every game he started and finished…

  11. “We know what the standard is. So, yeah, f-k Minnesota.”

    You mad bro? Thanks for the bulletin board material tough guy. The only thing better than a Zimmer defense is a motivated Zimmer defense. Maybe we’ll see rat face Paytons Skol clap again. October 28 can’t come soon enough.

  12. Alvin, remember the first half? I don’t think you were rolling.

    For once, they were on the right side of a Hail Mary. If Rodgers does it, he is the best ever.

  13. Let’s be honest here. He’s right. In the NFC Title game, Kennum’s arm was moving forward and they still ruled it a fumble, changing the game. Vikings were about to tie the game at 14, and the refs took care of that, just like the refs took care of the Eagles in the Super Bowl with those 3 TDs that were not overturned and should have been. As far as I concerned, the Saints were the best team last year.

  14. What’s funny is watching queenie fans try to act like they actually won something that matters, although I guess when you never win anything the small things start to seem more important.

  15. The Saints didn’t get it done. Neither did the Vikings, or the Patriots. The Eagles did. That’s all you really need to know. Oh, and the Falcons can say that all they want, too, about SB 51. But they didn’t finish either and the Patriots did. Aint over till it’s over, son.

  16. What a poor sport? You can tell he is immature and a rookie. The Saints were down 17-0 at half time. They wouldn’t have even been in the game if Case Keenum wouldn’t have thrown a terrible interception and a punt didn’t get blocked.

    At the end of the game thou, both teams deserved to win. Yes the play was a miracle.

    Also no guarantee the Saints would have won in Philly. I believe in NFL history…no dome team has ever won a conference championship game outside. Either that or it’s a very low number like 1. So history would have been against the Saints winning just like it was against the Vikings winning.

    Nobody outside of NO remembers the team… just the scandal. How’s the asterisk on your only trophy? This is your last year before Brees retires and the Saints are irrelevant for another 40 years.

  18. Big mistake, Kamara. Huge mistake. That Vikings defense is going to hear your little childish comment and it’s not going to be pretty. That quote is going to HAUNT him and the saints this year.

    Also, tell this moron that HIS team is the one who messed up on the play. And HIS team was down 17-0 at halftime. That’s the Saints fault and their fault entirely. That’s football, moron.

  19. Hey….we scored 17 unanswered, they scored 17 unanswered. Came down to the last few seconds of the game.

    Maybe you should blame your boss Payton for mocking the Minnesota fans with the SKOL chant!
    Ahhh……that’s priceless!

    It’s called karma , Alvin.

    Play 60 minutes……we did!

    SKOL!!!!!

    ++++++++

    Let me get this straight. Bulletin board material is sufficient to fire up a Zimmer defense. But a chance to play in the Super Bowl in front of the home crowd is not.

    Sounds like a Zimmer problem to me.

  21. Regardless of what any of the Saint players have to say, they can never take away that magic moment.

    And let me tell you, that Minneapolis Missed Tackle Miracle Trophy looks amazing sitting right next to Stefon Diggs’ Most Contested Pass Reception Award.

    Pretty soon, we’re not going to have any room left in our trophy case for just brooms anymore.
    skoLOL!

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

    After getting smoked for the final quarter of that game, you’d think they would have been “motivated” on January 22nd, as well…

  23. Since when does “rolling” include being down 17-0 at halftime? That crazy ending totally warped his perception into thinking they’d been in control the whole time when in reality they were outplayed for most of the game. Philly beats them just as badly as they beat the Vikings.

  24. There is no way the Eagles will put this up on the bulletin board on November 18th. And there is ABSOLUTELY no way they will use this as motivation to thrash Mr. Kamara.

  25. Any given sunday, I’ll grant him that much. At the same time, the Vikings dominated the Saints all season, and much of the divisional round game as well. To say they would have rolled over Philly – who completely dominated the Vikes – is laughable. The Birds were on a tear last season, and all the while without key players such as Wentz, Peters, Sproles, Darby for much of the season, their starting kicker, starting MLB (Hicks), and special teams ace. Most teams would have folded under the weight of so many key losses to their team, but the Birds excelled through all of it. They were a uniquely talented team – stressing the word team.

    Any team can win on any given sunday, but lets give credit where credit is due.

  26. Well he isn’t wrong. The saints absolutely destroyed them in the second half. Minny defense got exposed. With that being said minny won. It was a lucky miracle play but they won. Neither team should be talking at this point cause the eagles are the champs.

  27. I like Alvin Kamara even more after these statements. I researched this Lee Elia guy and what he said and I hope one day Kamara can craft a speech as great as his.

  28. Momentum can change quickly in football and it’s hard to stop. After the Saints finally scored a touchdown after three quarters, Keenum threw an interception up for grabs on the very next play. That’s the primary reason why he isn’t back this year. Two short fields after the interception and the blocked punt and a 4th-down conversion does not mean the Saints “exposed” the Vikings defense. I might have given the Saints the edge in this year’s game because they’ll want to avenge that loss, but Kamara’s comments probably put an end to that. They shouldn’t help motivate professional football players, but they do.

  29. If he’s right about momentum carrying over, the Viking defense is going to suck eggs this year.

  30. Apparently if the Vikings had beaten the Saints 3 times last year rather than 2, it wouldn’t have been enough for this guy to admit his team just wasn’t as good. And the Eagles were by far the best team in the NFL last year, deserved every inch of the Lombardi, would have squashed the Saints, and this guy would have been saying “F” the Eagles instead of the Vikings.

  31. Obviously AK has already had too many concussions. Ton of talent that will go down the drain. Runs too hard; won’t last the year. Fantasy buyers beware!

  32. Has anyone drug tested this guy?

    You didn’t beat the Vikes, and you wouldn’t have beaten the Eagles.

    Tom Brady still lost the Super Bowl, and the Saints and Vikes got to watch!

    -EaglesFan

  33. The Saints must be so pleased to have such an eloquent spokesman as the face of their franchise.
