  1. The. Same. Story. Every. Year. 

     

     

    Fire Sean Payton - he has had 5 YEARS to figure this thing out on defense...coaches change, players change, schemes change, yet here we are and nothing has really changed in play. Still looks as bad as it did 5 years ago. Officially done with this....

      You pretty sum up my worst fears of it...Was your neighbor's cat a miniature, like really small? That's what I have. All miniatures. The biggest ones are about half the size of a natural cat. 

       

      It's strange though cause it was only this one cat. i have a white one who is a miniature too and she had kittens and tended to them like any other cat (but sadly they didn't live). You mention another cat adopting the kittens as their own, and that is exactly what my white one did several months ago with a kitten that managed to survive to another cat (the mother died sadly) . 

       

      This specific cat though, it's so strange and it's been giving me headaches for months. First off, it went into heat back around March when it was still somewhat cold. It had kittens, and I'll never forget it just having them and leaving them there...she didn't clean them or nothing. It was like she had them, and moved on...I have had to force that cat to tend to them. This last litter that got killed off, I was forcing her into a box to make her feed them.

      In response to your question,my neighbor's cat wasn't real small or miniature. She was over a year old, so didn't have kittens too young. I have no idea why she abandoned them; sometimes it just happens in nature,. 

       

      How is the cat's health now? You had mentioned that her body was broken after having kittens. That's quite  a large litter for such a small cat.

      Hmmm, that might be a combination of issues come to think of it. This cat is less than a year old too. I didn't think a cat could go into heat at 7 months old, but it happened. 

       

      Her body suffered damage internally. She had 5 kittens and is real little, so it tore her insides up. She had difficulties with using the bathroom, which is hard to talk about without getting graphic and I don't want to gross anyone out. She lost most of her weight too, it's barely anything left to her weight-wise. 

       

      5 kittens though out of a small cat, oh yeah, it's hard to believe cause that's such a large litter. 

       

      All my cats are miniatures. Some of them are bob-tailed. The tail will be like a nub. I had some a few years ago with absolutely no tail at all. 

  2. 8-8 is a winning season only if you make the playoffs. Outside of la la land in this forum where that's used to justify the Colts mediocrity in Pagano's coaching, it's pretty much well agreed on that an 8-8 record makes you an average, mediocre team and not a "winning season." If you make the playoffs at 8-8, then you can tell us how this is a winning team who fails to achieve 9 or 10 wins...
  3. Most players on coke and other illegal drugs like that cannot perform at a high level. LT was an exception of this...Weather he was on crack or not, I don't see where it gave him a boost of performance since most people can't play that great when they're high like that on something like coke. Parcells has blamed himself for years about LT's behavior issues and drug problems, stating that he failed him as a person, so have to disagree with your comment that he ignored it. LT played in an era where quarterbacks weren't treated like gods and you could beat the living crap out of them and not have to worry about fines, excessive flags, or "bounty" stuff...He is far from the only one of his era who wouldn't be allowed on the field today. Ronnie Lott, Rickey Jackson, Clyde Simmons, Reggie White and Bruce Smith would be getting fined every week for how brutal they beat up quarterbacks in this same era. He still redefined the position of linebacker and completely changed how the position is viewed and played. Joe Gibbs has said before that he started using 2 Tight End sets back in the 80's to try and do something to hold off LT's pass rush from getting to the QB...
  4. Seat Geek is good for tracking down tickets for concert venues too.
  5. Can't believe people like Savage so much when they ripped on Brock all last year. And now he's getting outplayed by Watson through sheer athleticism, even funnier! Brock was bad too, but he couldn't get the benefit of the doubt from many people for some reason...People wanted to see him fail since he won games in Denver, though Elway was 100% correct when he said they don't win that SB in 2015 without Brock to win a few games for them. The coach is the problem in Houston and always was...He's went through quarterbacks like a pair of socks - Hoyer, Weeden, Brock, and now Savage and Watson...He still hasn't hit on a QB and yet he gets none of the blame for some reason.
  6. Awesome video I saw this morning and had to share. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ba3akiNi1sA Some of you may be too young to remember LT, and I myself didn't really get to witness him until the tail end of his career. Arguably the greatest linebacker to ever play the game, straight up beast and amazing to watch in old videos.
  7. um not yet....the Raiders had one of the worst defenses in the league last year and were winning close games. In many ways, they were like the Saints last year, but with a lot more luck. This is only week 1. Let's see how they look after 5 games, and then we know if they're for real, or another year where it's simply a great QB carrying a team with no defense and getting lucky along the way.
  8. Go Cowboys. This is a great game where Dak can shine and have a good one, I'm hoping. Love this kid and am rooting for him every step of the way. Dak is going to be something special in the future...
  9. Fragile Bradford strikes again....The Saints barely even touched him in that game. Our defense is amazingly awful... Boy oh boy, Vikings gonna be so disappointed come Sunday when they realize that any QB looking like the reincarnation of Steve Young or Dan Marino only happens against the Saints. He will regress back to an average QB in a few days, probably even more so if Pittsburgh brings the heat and can knock him down constantly.
  10. Jim Mora built an awesome defense in New Orleans - The Dome Patrol, who were at one point, an elite group and the best LB core in the league. Rickey Jackson is in the Hall of Fame, Pat Swilling arguably should be in since he has the numbers is and is up there in the top 10 sacks list and won DPOY award back in 1992. Sam Mills should definitely be in the Hall of Fame, and probably would be if cancer didn't take him back in 2003 when he was coaching on Carolina's SB staff.... Vaughan Johnson was awesome an awesome inside Linebacker too....Saints defense also had some other pretty good players like Frank Warren, Wayne Martin (hands down, the most underrated Saints palyer ever) and Toi Cook who was a pretty good safety in his prime. Mora not winning a playoff game really hurts some of these great players from being recognized. Sam Mills I think absolutely belongs in the Hall of Fame, and Pat Swilling probably gets in too had they just won a single playoff game. Swilling winning a Defensive Player of the Year award was huge back in 1992. But beyond how awesome Mora's defense was, it don't erase how conservative he was...There are many instances you can find in those Saints teams where Mora would blow it by playing things too conservative and not taking risks, not trusting his offense at all, even in games where they were doing good. My favorite one is the Falcons overtime loss in 1991...Mora could've went for like 55 yard field goal with his Hall of Fame kicker Morten Andersen who was the record breaking kicker who could hit those long distance field goals...Instead, he punts, and the Falcons end up going down the field and winning....Other instances like Mora not going for it vs the Eagles in the 1992 playoff game, things could've been a lot different if he was more of a risk taker with those teams. I love those old Saints teams and always will. They were my childhood heroes, and I'll always have a place in my heart for Rickey Jackson and Sam Mills but there is no way I would hire Jim Mora in today's era....Sean Payton probably is going to get fired after this year and will deserve it, but I like him a lot better than Mora cause he will take risks and gamble and do stuff...The onside kick in the SB, and aggressive 4th down play are things Mora would've never ever done. You have to take risks and gamble sometimes to win, and Jim Mora would never do those things to go the extra mile and try to win.
  11. As long as Marvin Lewis still has a job, they don't have the stones do to it.... Keep in mind, this is the team who drafted Joe Mixon after that video leaked of him punching the woman in the face. They also gave extensions to Pac Man Jones and Burfict, who are players with a history of dirty play and haven't changed one bit.
  12. Baltimore choked a game away that they had a 14 point lead in....twice Keep blaming Deflategate all you want...But they choked that game away when they had it in the bag. Deflated balls didn't make Joe Flacco throw that bad interception late in the game. Plus, this is Baltimore...before the deflated balls thing, John Harbaugh was going nuts over the trick play pass from Edleman...That team can't handle losing without coming up with conspiracy theories. Kinda reminds me of Brad Childress and his whiny Vikings team. Another team of sore losers that made up a big conspiracy theory rather than admitting they turned the ball over 5 times and lost it off that. Deflategate was one of the dumbest controversies in recent NFL history. I'm sure if it was another team and not New England, people would think different. Aaron Rodgers flat out said he likes to have a big ball over-inflated....Most of the NFL thought it was ridiculous. Outside of la la land in Indy and Baltimore, the rest of the NFL thought it was dumb as hell. There used to be a time when instead of blaming the refs and making up conspiracy theories, fans agreed on one thing and that was getting home field advantage for the playoffs. This theory comes from the 1981 Chargers, and how failing to get home field in the playoffs led to them having to travel to Cincinnati for the AFCCG which is known as the "freezer bowl" and played at -50 degrees. Their high powered offense became useless in a major cold weather game...Watch the Missing Rings documentary on that team and they specifically talk about the importance of having home field advantage in the playoffs to avoid something catastrophic like that. Maybe that's what Baltimore and Indy should've done in 2014 so they wouldn't have had to travel to Foxboro in the first place..
  13. Oh thank you! It's a golden retriever big dog. A friend of mine sent me the picture some time ago and I just had to save it. I have 2 dogs, but they are little dachshunds. They do wear clothes around Halloween but it's so hard to find Saints stuff where I live since Alabama wins every year. I'd love to find a scarf to put over one of them for fun.
  14. And yet Marvin Lewis still has a job and has been there so long. This is like his 16th year...He should've been fired years ago. Any other team would've never put up with all the first round playoff losses.
  15. I wouldn't blame Luck one bit if all of this ends up being true down the line. This team has failed him...He was drafted by an organization that intentionally tanked to draft him, and robbed him the chance to go to another team that could've maybe done things better. Lack of quality coaches, lack of offensive line, and now he's pretty much been killed behind that line to the point he's damaged and could be a risk for a career ending injury. After all the hell he's been through with injuries, I don't blame him at all if he truly does feel this way or gets to feeling this way down the line... If Luck does come back at ANY point this year, what's the point in even starting him? He's just going to punished more behind that offensive line and risk another major injury. This team isn't winning more than 6 games...Their ceiling with Luck is around 6-7 wins. It's no use in risking him to get injured again. I feel sorry for the kid. He deserves better than this. His talent is pretty much being wasted and he had so much potential when he came up in the draft.
  16. The Saints ain't beating this Patriots team. The Saints just let a crappy mediocre QB have the best game of his career. The Vikings are going to be so disappointed next week when Sam Bradford goes back to being average at best, cause this sorta thing only happens against the Saints. Forget the run game, we make QB's look like Steve Young...Tom Brady will probably look like he's 25 again and all of us are going to look stupid for saying he was done last week. We're pretty good at this too...It goes back to 2011 and that one playoff game that pretty much is the only reason Alex Smith still has a starting job in the NFL. If you want your QB to look like a Hall of Famer on any day, just start them against the Saints... The Pats have had 4 extra days off, a whole week of hearing "they're done" and lucky for them, they get to play the team with the worst defense going on the past 4 years straight who they will undoubtedly take all their anger out on.... I think the Saints will make it interesting early on, back and forth, but this is going to be a game where Brees is in Favre style 'hero mode' cause he knows his defense can't stop nothing, so he's going to try and score at will, and I think he'll end up getting picked off a few times. Brandin Cooks will have over 200 yards receiving, book that...The Saints will have such poor coverage and man to man defense, I think Cooks goes off on us. 48 to 24 Pats. I'm honestly beginning to think the Saints should fire Sean Payton. He's had 5 years to figure this thing out on defense, and yet here we are in groundhog day repeating the same thing over and over...This is year #5 of making crappy QB's look like Steve Young, and I'm getting tired of it...there is no excuse anymore...Take Brees off this team and we would be a 1-15 or 3-13 team at best.
  17. Get back to me when you have one of these...
  18. Adrian Peterson should've never been signed to begin with....and to any Saints fans on Twitter saying he needs more carries, NO...He's washed up and done...and I'm praying he gets cut tomorrow...I didn't want him on this team to begin with, and have had to endure an entire summer of fans who used to laugh at him for being a fumble machine take a complete .360 spin and start defending him as if he is Reggie Bush or Darren Sproles. They crossed the line with defending child abuse...he didn't even play a single game for us and fans were treating him like he has rushing records for us. Any quarterback can look like Tom Brady against the Saints, so Sam Bradford owes us for making him look like god tonight...I am so looking forward to next week when a 40 year old Brady is going to look like he's 30 years old again playing against our defense that hasn't changed a bit. Fun times!!
  19. Vikings gonna be so disappointed to learn next week that this only happens against the Saints...

      I can't see whatever that is at the bottom. I'm using Chrome, that might be why...

       

       

      Yeah, Goff is going to come back down to earth too. Your team made him look like Kurt Warner, that was as shameful as the Saints making SAM BRADFORD look like Dan Marino.

      And now the Minnesota hype train begins!! lmao

       

      Here's my guarantee ahead of time...If the Vikings do make the playoffs, I promise that they will lose and either blame it all on the field goal kicker (1998 NFCCG vs Atlanta, vs Seattle a few years ago), or the refs (Drew Pearson hail mary!!!) or something stupid like 'Bountygate' (Saints NFCCG)....I hate this team and their whiny fans so much, cause nothing is ever their fault. They can never just take responsibility for losing. No, it's always someone else's fault or they make up a conspiracy like they did with Bountygate. They're the Hillary Clinton of NFL teams - they think they've automatically won in the playoffs before the game is even played, and then have a laundry list of people and things to blame when it don't go their way. 

       

      GO PACK GO...WIN THAT EASY DIVISION AND SEND THEM HOME CRYING IN PURPLE RAIN. 

       

       

       

  20. So yeah, um this custom jersey exists....

      The only thing you have to hang your hat on ahead of time is that a Brees led team has often shown up vs. the Pats, even in a loss.

       

      But this was the Brees teams without the slow child abusing aazz.

       

       

      Holy crap, I just realized another game was on. lmao I looked up and said Wait it's Denver? lmao 

       

      Oh good another crappy L.A. team.......

      The only positive of today is that Coby Fleener actually looked good and caught some tightly contested passes. 

       

      When Fleener is your only positive, that's not good. lmao

       

      Rex Ryan is commentating that Denver game too...I figure he won't be that bad on there since Rex does have charisma and is likable (and hilarious, weather that's intentional or not). 

    4. Jules

      Jules

      I am just glad I got to see another awesome Saints prime time game that I make time to watch. lmao I swear whenever I see them on at night the last few years they look like trash.

       

      Your offense btw did look out of sync, maybe it is the Peterson effect and his slow child abusing aazz.

       

      AP also looked POUTY, I am getting Tomlinson vibes now. But LdT never hurt a child, he is nothing but class. He is a very classy person.

  21. They would be smart not to play Luck at all. This season is lost with a horrible roster. They'll be drafting in the top 5 with or without him...Not worth subjecting him to punishment and letting him take more beatings to risk undoing his surgery.
  22. Don't know if you're serious. They made Jared Goff look like Kurt Warner and the Rams looked like the GSOT... Hope and pray that the Saints or San Diego or Denver can put 46+ on MNF, otherwise the Colts defense is going to be ranked at the bottom.
  23. Can you even blame Texans fans? Every QB they've had under Bill O'Brien has been terrible...He's putting together a resume of crappy QB's that almost mirrors Jim Mora's years with the Saints where every QB we had was terrible too.
  24. Savage is terrible of a QB. Yet another year Houston don't have a QB.
  25. Credit due for Detroit. They closed out a close game and took it away with that pick six.
