Wow, the Saints are freaking dirty. ADP said it. And everyone knew it watching that game. And now it's documented.

The Vikes outplayed the Saints. Almost doubled their offense. Saints only had 70 some yards in the second half. They got lucky, and were playing dirty.

Who outplayed who?

Doesn't matter. The Saints won. The Vikings lost. It's well past time to get over it, friend.

Just like the Saints/49ers this the year, the team that scored more deserved to win. TOs are a huge part of the "outplaying" formula. To ignore turnovers and special teams might be convenient for you, but we both know the truth.

Oh please. Vikes didnt have turnovers to that magnitude the entire year. If that game was played 10 times, who would you bet on to win more games? You dont like :moneybag: if you say the Saints. End of story.

Players wearing Vikings jerseys put the ball on the ground, or threw it to the other team. Feel free to remove mistakes from your outplaying nonsense, but you're wrong, and the scoreboard is all the proof that matters.This is what's great about football. No goalie standing on his head, or no pitcher with his best stuff that day. Outside of an officiating gaff, the best team that day ALWAYS wins.

Apparently the cold isn't the only thing that's still bitter in Minnesota. :lmao:

Wow. As if this drivel wasn't put to bed in the 20 threads after the game. Saints were the better team all year, and on that day. This is pathetic.

Remember when Jared Allen got fined for going for Matt Schaub's knees over and over.

Minnesota almost doubled the Saint's offensive production. And now it is confirmed they were cheating. Saints were outplayed, and got super lucky and they know it. Case closed.

Laughable. Of course you had more offense. The Saints started all of their drives on Minnesota's side of the field because of vastly superior special teams, and the fact that the Vikings choked the ball away all day. Vikings were overmatched by the more talented team with better coaches.

Do you really think that Jared Allen or Ray Edwards would have hit Brees softly if they ever had the chance? Or do you think they would have tried to take his knees out like they did to Schaub?

Like I said, this is pathetic crybaby stuff. Guess what Vikings, in spite of all of this controversy, the Saints will still be better than you next year and for the forseeable future. Get over it. You lost.

Did you watch the game? Vikes dominated, and despite 5 turnovers, still took the Saints to OT. You won the coin toss, CONGRATS!!! :rolleyes:

Ok, AE is a PITA, I know. As a vikes fan, he does us very little favors.

That said, objectively, the saints were obviously (and now it has been confirmed) playing dirty, and the officiating was terrible. The vikes turned it over far too many times, admitted. But you can't tell me the saints were the better team. And if you say 'yes they are, cause they won' then you hate logic. Worse teams beat better teams all the time.

Im still very confused what the saints did illegal on the field? Every team in the NFL gets charged for roughing the passer or hitting a defenseless wr, are they all cheaters??? This is a rough dirty game and everyone plays it. The problem with the saints was off the field. If you want to say which team "deserved" to be in the superbowl, neither the Giants or Patriots would have been in. If turnovers dont count to how bad or good you played then that would be a Baltimore SF superbowl. BUT, this game is based on who can play better on ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, and in the playoffs you have to perform when it counts. Turnovers are a huge part of this.

Simply put, there are 3 components to football teams: offense, defense, and special teams.In that game, the Vikings were definitely the better offensive team. But the Saints won the defensive and special teams battles. So I'm not sure why you think it defies logic to call the Saints the better team that day when they were better at 2 of the 3 facets of the game. If you want to say the Vikings were clearly the better offensive team, I doubt you'd get much argument. Unfortunately, there's more to it than just that.

Are you nuts? The Saints didnt win the defensive battle.. They only had 70 yards in the second half. Minnesota was dominating both sides of the ball.

Vikings lost the game because they gave it away. Too many turnovers.

How many turnovers in OT did the Vikes have? Saints won the coin toss, they got lucky. That's all.
