| More Sports Board|| Is Chase Daniel the leagues best backup QB? - afatgreekcat on 12/29/13 at 6:07 pm|
The only guy who is even close to being as good is Cousins IMO
Mccown (Chi) is pretty good too but I'm attributing his success this year more to Trestman and the system. ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| I have a feeling we will take a RB - afatgreekcat on 12/23/13 at 2:57 pm|
A lot of our issues this year on offense can be attributed to our absolute joke of a run game. I am aware that we need a lot of help on the OL (and I'm sure the coaching staff and the FO know this too), but our backs do not help. Sproles is up there in age and isn't sturdy enough to pound the rock a...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Someone give me a rundown? - afatgreekcat on 12/23/13 at 7:27 am|
I missed 85% of the game because of a family emergency.. I saw some of the first Qu and the very, very end.
How did Armstead look? I assume not very good based on some threads I see, but I'd like a rundown regardless. Better or worse than Brown?
Did our D play well outside that final drive? 1...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| You guys are too negative - afatgreekcat on 12/22/13 at 10:50 am|
We're winning this game. Without-a-doubt. The prediction thread is pathetic.
We are winning. Have some faith in your team.. They know they need this. They will not fail.
If you don't believe this, get off this board. We don't need you.
:whodat: :saints: WE GOT THIS...

I've got pretty good options but I'm struggling with the final decisions.
At DEF I've been playing Arizona all year and they've been beast, but I don't like their matchup. My other options are StL (leaning towards this), Miami or SD.
At K I can't decide between Phil Dawson (SF) and Alex Hene...
| More Sports Board|| Is there a coach out there who could consistently challenge Nick Saban? - afatgreekcat on 12/14/13 at 7:09 pm|
In the wake of "He stayin'" I've given a little thought to LSU's future in the SEC-West.. and I'm willing to admit it's pretty terrifying thinking about CNS being at Bama for another decade (or more).
This led me to ponder this: Is there any way we could get a coach who could consistently challe...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Keenan Lewis signing in hindsight - afatgreekcat on 12/5/13 at 11:12 pm|
Man, what a great move by the FO. It's borderline terrifying how screwed we would be without him right now.
I just thought I'd post this so we could all recognize the greatness :bow:...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Worst offensive performance of the Payton era? - afatgreekcat on 12/2/13 at 10:58 pm|
I think so.. BY FAR.
We need A LOT of help on the OL and with WRs. Moore and Colston (bless them, I'M NOT HATING) are getting up there in age and seem like they've lost a step. We need more speed....
| More Sports Board|| Seriously: name a better play? - afatgreekcat on 12/1/13 at 12:36 am|
The attempts at discussion about this on the SEC Rant have been unsuccessful.
Let's talk about this. I'm sure there are a lot of people here who have a lot more knowledge than me about this sort of thing.
Is there a better play EVER in the history of CFB than the one that happened tonight? Acc...

He said that IF Auburn wins next week, he thinks that the computers will put Auburn at [b]number one[/b], meaning that it would only take some voters putting Auburn at 2 for them to be IN the NCG, even with an OSU win.

"MsGarrison" makes the stupidest ones that have a bunch of stupid, useless characters in them and he/she makes the threads for every auburn game on the SECRant.
Plenty of people on other boards do similar stuff but his/her's in the most annoying.
Can we just establish some sort of basic format...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Some random thoughts on the Seattle game - afatgreekcat on 11/22/13 at 8:15 pm|
I've just been thinking about a couple small discussion topics about the game and wanted to see how you all felt.

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Thoughts from my first @ATL game - afatgreekcat on 11/22/13 at 12:31 am|
Just some quick thoughts/questions. Overall I had a pretty good time. The game was pretty boring but there was a lot of cool people around me and I got to interact with Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders some.
Is our fan presence always so strong there, or is it just because ATL sucks this year? Th...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Never been to an @Falcons game before - afatgreekcat on 11/21/13 at 6:52 am|
Can anyone tell me what to expect tonight? How hostile are the fans?
The tickets I have are a Falcons-season-ticket-holder who has given up on the team (:lol:) so I will probably be surrounded. Can anyone provide any insight? I'd just like to mentally prepare myself.
Section 128 if anyone car...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Cadet should handle all returns - afatgreekcat on 11/17/13 at 4:54 pm|
Not JUST because of that return, but also for the health of Sproles. Sproles is too important to our offense to risk injuring him.. and Cadet doesn't get any actual snaps so he will be fresh for returns.
I can't remember if he ever returned punts (I don't think so?) but I'm sure he could learn.

Are people going to look back and call the 2006-2015(~) Saints the best offensive team of all time?
Seriously. We've shattered so many records it's stupid. ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Success in the run game = Unstoppable passing game - afatgreekcat on 11/10/13 at 9:06 pm|
5.1 ypc so far. 77 yards, 15 carries.
If we could run like this every game we would be borderline unbeatable. Yes, it's Dallas' D. Still. I'm impressed.
Let's run more.

With week 9 mostly in the books, who ya got?
I'm trying not to be biased here. IMO, the most likely scenario at this point is
Seattle vs Indy.
I really like what Indy is doing right now, and Seattle's easy schedule will give them 1st seed and they probably won't shite the bed in the playof...
| More Sports Board|| The future of Terrelle Pryor - afatgreekcat on 11/3/13 at 5:06 pm|
What does Oakland do with him after this season?
It's painfully obvious that he's the only reason this team has any wins.
That said, I'm not super dazzled by his play or anything. But he's definitely good, and with more help on his line and at the skill positions I think he could be a real QB....

I can't decide which I hate watching football on the most. :banghead:
(IMO) CBS has better on-screen graphics and I feel like they do a better job of quieting the crowd noise so you can actually hear the commentators.. But then most of their commentators suck so it's a catch 22.

| Music Board|| Did anyone catch this from Jimmy Fallon? - afatgreekcat on 10/9/13 at 8:43 pm|
Miley Cyrus and The Roots were on Jimmy Fallon the other day and they did an A Cappella performance of Miley's "We Can't Stop" ..
I was sort of surprised because it was really good. Obviously The Roots is the real talent here but Miley has a great voice when she's not on top of terrible music.
| More Sports Board|| Should the Texans draft a QB? - afatgreekcat on 10/6/13 at 10:01 pm|
There is a lot of QB talent coming in this next draft class. There will be future starters available outside of the top 10 picks, which is good for a team like the Texans.
Guys like Mettenberger, Murray, Manziel, Thomas, etc, will all most likely be there for their pick (wherever it may be; I'm t...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Is an upgraded line gonna fix this rushing attack? - afatgreekcat on 10/6/13 at 2:21 pm|

Do we think he can turn Jennings into a badass in one offseason like he did Mett? Obviously not to the same degree but still "good."
If he can then maybe 2014 isn't lost after all. I was in a dark place during half time last night, but I'm feeling better now.

For a TE anyways.
458 receiving yards through 4 games. Project, that's 1800 yards.
He's 2nd in the league in receiving yards right now. Tied for 1st in TDs.

Could y'all ever justify this after the disasters that we've had trying to take them early the last few years?
Because we really sort of do need some help there. I know our O-line is underperforming, but we could really use a strong back who can fight for yards.. Like Ingram was supposed to be. W...
