Used to live in New Orleans for some 20 years before the storm hit, then moved back to North Texas. But continue to follow this team, and they've been much more successful under Sean Payton consistently than under any other coach in Saints history(Payton, IMHO, has a good system going with them).

A classic nailbiter, the Dome will be wild, but I think the Pats will pull it out in the final moments.

I wouldn't bet money either way, but you have to like the Saints' chances. New England's defense isn't what it used to be and the Patriots* haven't fared well against good teams the last couple of years.

I probably asked before but where did you live? I lived at the corner of Napoleon and Baronne (2 blocks off St Charles) when the storm hit and I lived in Algiers Point for a few years before that. I went back in October 2005 and worked for a couple months, then moved to the MS Coast. I'd been planning on leaving NOLA for a while and Katrina speeded up the process.

Not to mention too NE's coaching staff has been gutted since their 3rd Super Bowl win - now their OC is down to some guy with very little experience. The assistant coaching staff means ALOT - look at Bill Parcells over the years when he didn't have his regular guys(i.e. in Dallas, he had an average one at best). Andy Reid, OTOH, he's been fortunate to keep his staff intact throughout his entire tenure in Philly.

For about 15 years, I lived on Freret St across from both universities(Tulane and Loyola), then I moved to River Ridge in the summer of 2001, an lived there until a year after the storm hit. During the evacuation period of a month(Jefferson Parish residents were the first ones they allowed back in), I was in SW Louisiana with my brother, and in Ohio for about a week with my dad's family. I lived in North Texas throughout the 80's, which is why we ended up moving back here.

Hope everything turned out OK overall for you.

to an extent...

jim johnson just passed, and childress is coaching the vikings, and harbaugh, the ravens (both have proven far more worthy than any belichick disciple who has gotten a HC job.)

im not sure if its d. scharnechia calling the plays (hes been there for years). i think youre right, it is some new intern or something. regardless it is brady's and belichicks offense and either will over turn a call if they see fit and teach the coordinator on the fly.

i think the saints are actually being over looked in this one and have shown that even if they get down, they can come back swinging. the patriots rarely face opponents like that, and when they do its usually the colts punching them in the mouth.

saints win.

im not kidding myself. im pretty sure no matter what happens, the patriots got the answer written on the bottom of their shoe?

but then again, i guess it doesnt matter what the coaches call (with or without cheating or genius or any other advantage) it still all boils down to having the players capable of "executing".

hmmmm... :scratchchin:

Game preparation is key.

ouch. that hurts. your not suggesting that matt cassell is more capable of executing a gameplan than ben is, are you?

mike ditka said a funny thing on the radio this morning sorta pertaining to the steelers/cheifs game. it was a reference to parcells and a head coach being able to cook the meal and being able to shop for his own groceries (i forget which coach or team he was particularly referring to)-

"you cant win a horse race with a donkey"

what i saw last sunday in KC was 22 thoroughbreds vs. 22 donkeys...

i guess horses have a jockey for a reason. :noidea:

is coming to the dome.....:sofunny:

I put my money on the Saints. This team seems to personify the community and what they've been through. A tough resilent people that have come together in the face of tragedy and found solace in their football team.

Compare that to the Pats* and what they've contributed through their actions, and well........:sofunny:. Nothing positive comes to mind, and god trust me I've tried. Classless cheats is all I've got and nothing else.

No offense of course to you Patriot.

I do think karma is going to continue to bite your Pats* in the ass though, and I believe it will rear it's head to get ya in New Orleans. Go Saints!:tt:

Is this really a question?

Pats* will not have an answer for the Saints O.

As far as NOLA goes....
I lived in the Garden District for about 7 years, then in the Mid-City area just above Fontainebleu for about 7 years; then on the West Bank in Park Timbers (off of Gen. DeGaulle) until the Storm. Stayed there thru Katrina and helped evac people out of Touro Infirmary until the Friday after. Went to stay with relatives in Memphis for about 5 weeks. Then went back to Touro for about a year and a half. Finally moved to Selma, AL in Sept. 2007 because there just weren't enough patients to go around at Touro.

Selma sucks. I'd give anything to be back in the Big Easy. (or The Burgh!)
