Super Bowl Preview? We Might Be Seeing It Tonight. [Monday Night Football Live Thread]

11/30/09 in NFL   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

Tonight's game might be a Super Bowl preview. The Saints have the best record in the NFC so far, and the Patriots showed that they can compete with anyone in the AFC right now, despite losing to the Colts a couple weeks ago. That's why tonight's game is a pretty big one, and could give us a glimpse at what we could see in the Super Bowl.

66% of FanIQ users picked the Saints to win. It might be a little tougher than originally thought, however, with Reggie Bush sitting this one out due to a knee injury. The Saints' starting corners are out as well, meaning Randall Gay and rookie Malcolm Jenkins will get the start. That could bode well for the Patriots passing game, which is already one of the best in the league.

If you're watching the game (8:20 pm EST on ESPN), chat it up here from start to finish. And as always, enjoy the game!

LOL, That is funny.
 
I know all Saints fans are not bad I have two very close friends who are Saints fans. They have been with us both times we have gone to the Super Dome and even they have been appalled at how we were treated and they were even ridiculed for bringing us. Love the city hate the team.

You are right there are bad seeds everywhere but I have been to numerous fields all over the country my buddies and I have been going to at least one away game a year for the past 20 years and by far the worst experiences we have had has been the two games that we have been to at the Super dome. So I am sorry if I am a little disenchanted with the Saints. I will say however that they are one hell of a football team and even though I want them to lose I would put my money on them to win it all. I hope that makes you feel a little bit better.

Sorry man I have had some real bad experiences with Saints fans at home and at away games I have gone too things like being spit on and beer bottles thrown at me and my kids, my wife being threatened and my kids being taunted and yelled at so I do not have much love for the saints, but I will root for LSU in their Bowl game.

If it makes you feel any better, University of Hawaii fans are, by far the worst. I had season tickets for their undefeated season, and let's just say I'm glad I bought a Colt Brennan jersey, and I'm also glad Boston College didn't visit Hawaii that year. I would have been forced to root for the away team, and I might not have gotten out of there in one piece. They can be vicious there.

man what an awesome game - i figured if the Pats kept it close, they would squeak it out. not showing a lack of faith in my Saints, but respect for one of the most dominate teams of recent years. never in my wildest dreams did I forsee the game being like that last night.
can we hit 16-0? no idea, but man its gonna be one hell of a fun ride to see if we can do it!
Brees MVP 09!

If that was a Super Bowl preview, it was a preview of a rerun of Montana blowing out Elway. UGH

You mean a blowout.

Anyway, Jubinator beat me by three for the second straight week which is pretty maddening, but Drew Brees definantly had a standout game.

Let's hope that wasn't the Superbowl. That game stunk the joint up.

Not sure about end of era but beginning of a friggin powerhouse.  Trying to find anything wrong with these Saints.  They have been doing this to everyone and I don't see any weaknesses on this team.  Brees is outstanding and he has weapons all over the place.  The D is stout when it needs to be and the corners are agressive enough to make even one of the best in Brady look bad at times. 

I know my Giants have been horrible but they were playing good football albeit against not the greatest of teams.  Then they met the Saints and the season has been a downward spiral ever since.  Not saying the Saints caused it but after the thumping the gave the Giants I just saw a special team there.  I only hope the Pats or the Colts, whoever gets to the Saints in the Superbowl, are at the top of their games when that time comes.  We have had some great Superbowls of late and I can see this topping the others easily if the AFC can hold its own agains this awesome machine that the Saints have become. 

In sports it is never safe to say sure thing.  But I have to say Colts or Pats vs Saints seems about as sure as I have ever been for any sport any time in my life. 

Steeler fans, no disrespect to you at all.  You are the defending champs.  Just stating what I have been watching each week. 

At this point, I honestly hope it's not Pats vs Saints. They're freaking ridiculous, and I'd rather not see another debacle like that in the Super Bowl.

The Saints are for real!  That was a beating they delivered to the Pats.  They did give Brady a couple of wide open receivers that he over threw, which would have made a big difference.   Brees was dropping passes in everywhere, what an individual performance!  Congrats to the Saints.

Maybe the Saints and the Vikings play to see who gets to beat the AFC in the Super Bowl, much like the Pats and Colts did in 2006.   

11/30/09   |   pizzlewizzle   |   224 respect

Brees is the best QB of the past three years. Payton is an innovative and bold Coach. McKenzie is the hottest secondary player out there. It's a lock for the Super Bowl win this year. It's just too bad that it cant be the Vikings and the Saints in the Super Bowl.

11/30/09   |   Boski93   |   375 respect

Holy Bobby Hebert! I did not see the Saints beating the Pats with a cue ball wrapped in a sweat sock like that.

Obviously, since there were no Patriots WR's within 10 yards or so. There were 3 Saints defenders, however. Ummm... awesome job there, Brady.

 That pick to Sharper gave me bad flashbacks to SB XXX when O'Donnell threw it right to Larry Brown.

There's a long way to go, but if we could have two undefeated teams playing in the Super Bowl, that would ensure that the '72 Dolphins would be forced to shut up.  I'm not sure about the Colts yet, but maybe.

It would be cool if the Brady would pass the ball PAST the line of scrimmage on 3rd down.

just like that, it's 17-7 Saints, but the Pats have the ball
