I don't care, everytime the QB drops back to pass, someone is trying to hurt somebody. Bounties have went on since the beginning of football time. I find it amazing that the Saints beat all these Super Bowl QB's in 2009, and all I ever hear about is "but but but they had a bounty on this one and that one" who cares. Favre had his chance to beat us. I am not going to lie, the Vikings totally shredded our defense to bits in that game, but the turnovers won it. The Saints forced 5 turnovers over Minnesota, they need to get over the bounty crap.Most people don't even want to admit it, but statistically, Minnesota would have won without all those turnovers that the Saints forced.
Manning had his chance to beat us, and he threw a pick, and people want to blame that on a bounty now. Don't even get me started on Kurt Warner, the Cards never had a chance in that game, and did he complain about how he got roughed up? We also beat Eli Manning and Tom Brady that year, 2 more Super Bowl QB's, I guess we had a bounty on them too I guess.
I'm so sick of this crap. I hear it every other day. Before this, you had to be reminded of Hurricane Katrina every game "Gee the Saints are so good since Katrina" (yeah thanks nice commentators for reminding me of losing my house, that's just one of the best memories ever) now they can't go a game without saying "bounties! The saints are so bad!".
Roger Goodell is a joke, and should be removed as commissioner for the mess he's created with this. If you're gonna go after one team over this, you might as well go on a league wide witch hunt, which he is not doing. The Jets are doing bounties, and they turn the other cheek. Houston has already had a player tell media they have a bounty pool, nothing wrong with that I guess.
Bounty or not, you cannot deny that the Saints gave Brett Favre the beating of his career. Why wasn't his O-line protecting him? More than half of those hits we gave him, were not illegal either. He was rushed, blitzed and beat down in that game. I don't care how you look at it, but his offensive line should have been held responsible for that. People need to get over this and stop whining about bounties. We barely even touched Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl, and next I have to hear we had a bounty on him. The Vikings O-line ALLOWED their QB to get beat up like that, just like the Niners O-line allowed Joe Cool to take the beating of his life in the 1990 NFC Championship that no one is accusing the Giants of having a bounty on him from.
