    Yeah, It's not like the last two calls were completely terrible, they were close.

    At least we dont have to listen to Favre stories for two weeks. Close game, I still covered with 3 1/2 points.

    Two very tough and close calls went the Saints way. It happens. Vikings outplayed the Saints, but couldn't close the deal. It happens.

    Saints vs. Colts should be a nice game.

    Officiating decides every close game. It is just a matter of timing as to how noticable it is.

    I'm glad the Saints won, the city of N.O. deserves some happy times.

    Minnesota should've won the game, but they couldn't hold on to the ball. That was pathetic how many times they fumbled. I'd be furious right now if I was a Vikings fan.

    The refs were pretty bad once again. Quite a few times they gave an extra foot or two on spots on key plays in the game. Also, the Brett Favre roughing penalty was putrid. Reminded of the Justin Smith/Gradkowski play a few years ago.

    It's amazing that all season an Adrian Peterson handoff/run was more risky than a Brett Favre pass attempt.

    It is amazing. It's very ironic that he's been the best back in the game over the last few years, yet he's the worst at holding onto the ball.

    I agree but I also think the play where he hurt his ankle should have been a penalty because it was a hit on the knee area, hence the Tom Brady Rule

    Chester Taylor's an Unrestricted Free Agent and will remain one even if there's no CBA. I'd love to see the Bengals go after and get him and have him and Brian Leonard available as backs. If we're committing to the Running Game, then commit all the way and have Taylor on the team. That'd be better than a fullback.

    I gotta think this sets the stage for a week of people protesting the league's overtime format. Prepare yourselves.

    i hope so. i like the NCAA's structure a whole lot better than the NFL's sudden luck structure.

    The Vikes definitely outplayed the Saints.....475 total yards and 300+ yds passing by Favre. Turnovers kill, but the Vikes were able to recover and come back from them.... until that last one, by Favre, deep in N.O.'s territory at the end of the game. That was a killer, but over his career epitomized Brett Favre - trying to make something happen, force the ball where he shouldn't.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Yeah, tomorrow I bet we hear he's retiring and then he'll be signed by the Bears by the Super Bowl.
