After the Saints game I watched alot of football today mostly the after shows to see what other channels except NFL network are saying about the NOLA Saints. To be honest I was really suprised on how at 13-0 and playing good football (not great football) the Saints are still not getting the respect from alot of the past players that appear on these shows.
Drew Brees gets his praise (as he should) but the talks about the Saints in the playoffs are always over shadowed by how good the Vikings are even with a few losses on their record. Aikman, Irvin, Sanders, Sims, Sapp, Collinsworth and Harrison are just not really respecting the Saints season.
Comments about them playing several rookie/backup QB's, banged up RB's and teams that didnt produce as to what their records were last year, really start to grind on me.
On a positive note it is sort of nice to be "Under the Radar" and not really being respected throughout say like the Colts are. It should give the Saints players a little more pop to get themselves ready each week, while also limiting the media that surrounds the team as the head forth into the next pahse of the season.
There is still alot of football to be played here........?
Does anyone else feel that the league and its followers are passing on the Saints in the playoffs for say Brett Favre and the Vikings to be the cream of the NFC?
Geaux Saints, Bless you boys!!!
