| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Is everybody enjoying this season as much as they should be? - LasVegasBandit on 11/19/13 at 11:16 pm|
Remembering back to how awful last year was and I craved for us to be in the playoff hunt, jockeying for positioning (byes, HFA, etc)... it sucked so bad.
I kind of feel mad at myself that I'm not enjoying this season more - it's really had some fantastic moments... the thrilling wins over Atlant...

There is a long and heated (8 page) debate about whether or not Sean Payton should have taken a timeout with 2:01 left on the clock yesterday in the Saints / 49ers game. He was obviously trying to save as much time as possible for his offense to drive and score the winning points, as the 49ers' off...
| Fark Board|| Garrett Hartley Emo Kicker request - LasVegasBandit on 11/18/13 at 10:55 am|
Could anybody make this look more like Garrett Hartley (just blonde hair and a Saints fleur de lis, maybe a #5)? There's been a running joke on Saints board for 3 or 4 years about how Hartley is "emo". I'd like to have this avatar sized and rock it for good luck the rest of the season.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Falcons' health? - LasVegasBandit on 11/18/13 at 10:40 am|
I haven't watched the Falcons in weeks. Does anybody know how healthy they are?
Is Stephen Jackson still out? How banged up is their defense?
I'm legitimately worried about Thursday night - they can definitely try to get riled up for us. I do have a feeling however that it will be at least ...

I'm not sure what to make of this game, frankly. I've seen a painfully embarrassing small sample of Carolina Panthers football this year - but it seems like on paper their strengths match up well with how you'd ideally like to attack the Greatriots.
Then again, Bill Belechick and Brady have had ...

Seriously - he's known to have a gimpy ankle, the Chiefs have the best rush in NFL and they manage 2 hits, 0 sacks, and 0 knockdowns?
Our backs are better than the Broncos, our line is as good as the Broncos, and our coach is better than the Broncos... why can't we do the same thing for Brees - w...

Year after year it seems that Im more and more alone in my support of whatever SEC school is playing in the BCS Title game. It's now to the point where I'm basically John the Baptist when it comes to cheering for Alabama over whoever else in the MNC.

| Tiger Rant|| A history of Tiger Stadium field designs / logos - LasVegasBandit on 11/16/13 at 9:33 pm|
For some weird reason I've always been fascinated by field decorations / uniform design, etc. It's too bad I haven't been able to implement this into my career somehow, but whatevs.
We're lucky at LSU to have had one of the more colorful and unique field design histories of any football team in ...

I was only like 9 years old but I (eventual LSU alum) remember attending this game with my dad (LSU alum) and my grandfather (Ohio State alum) and sitting in the Ohio State section.

For those of you who watched the Jazz game - did anybody notice that Aminu didn't get a second of playing time after Hayward kept driving past him in 2nd half giving Jazz the lead?
His performance in Utah was hands-down the worst NBA performance I've ever seen from a single player.
It seemed l...

You used to almost never see it, and on the off chance that it happened you'd often see the return man realize what he had done and indicate displeasure with his decision.
Now you routinely see above average return men fair catching punts as deep as the 5 yard line, and then not reacting as if it...

He's such a pencil necked looking geek that it's hard to take him seriously; but he impressed the hell out of me with some throws last week in Seattle and he looks even more confident this week.
His progressions are better than Kaepernicks or Lockers or Ponders already and this is only his 4th st...

Really insane that they'd pick that game over the Bears/Lions battling for first place in NFC North. Sometimes I wonder who makes these decisions.
Bigger markets, better game. But no, go to tiny Green Bay (population 275,000) for a last place team v's a team playing a scrub QB :lol:...
