NFC SOUTH!!!!

Aight, aight, so the New Orleans Saints lost to the Washington Redskins, but the Carolina Panthers also lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers so the Saints are your new NFC South Champions. It has been 6 years since the Saints have qualified for the playoffs and, being that it is the first year they return to playing at the Louisiana Superdome since the awful tradegy that struck the southern city, it was a great time to do it. There are still 2 games in the regular season. The New Orleans Saints travel to the north to face the New York Giants, and then return home because the Carolina Panthers will be coming to Jazz Town.

Mike Karney's time to party

What a game. The New Orleans Saints massacred The Dallas Cowboys in last Sunday's upset of a game. The Cowboys coming fresh off a 4 win streak and the Saints coming off a not too shabby 3 game win streak of thier own had a game that will be remembered for a long long time, at least by Saints fans. Everything the Saints tried seemed to work. Plays were firing off perfectly and the offense/defense/special teams not only did thier individual jobs great, but complimented each other every quarter. Mark Karney has got to be loving life right now though. He, who did not score a touchdown in the first 43 games of his career, scored 3 touchdowns Sunday night. Drew Brees, who is a really impressive QB by the way, commented on Karney's touchdowns, "It was not in the game plan to do, but he deserves the opportunities to score since it is usually himself that is openeing the holes for Reggie or Duece to get it in."

Upon ariving back home in New Orleans at 2:30 AM, the Saints were greeted by hundreds of happy and elated fans welcoming thier boys home after the 42-17 victory. Several people in N.O. are going to have a case of the Mondays but at least there will be good water cooler conversation.

Thanks, Giving to the Fans

The New Orleans Saints NFL Team Owner Mr. Tom Benson is giving back to the fans who have been selling out the seats for the enormous Louisiana Superdome this season. The Saints are in first place in thier devision and usually with sold out home games that would mean an increase in ticket pricing for next year. Tom doesn't feel that way and he expressed it to a hometown crowd during the 4th quarter of the game against The San Francisco 49ers and the fans could not be happier. The same great seats for the same great price 2 years running.

The team from San Fran scored a field goal to start things off. Those were to be the only points in the first quarter. After that it was victory all the way for the Saints. They donned thier black on black uniforms spelling doom for the west coast team scoring at least one touchdown every quarter following. They have not worn that combination since the last time The Superdome played host to these 2 teams. It was a dark day for The San Francisco 49ers as they lost to The New Orleans Saints 34 to 10. With only 4 games to go in the season the Saints play thier western neighbors The Dallas Cowboys on December 10th. If you want to see some live football this year then now is the time to start getting ticket orders in.
