Jimmy Graham: The Easy Way Out

Every offseason it seems something weighs heavily on Saints fans’ minds.  When was the last time we had a “normal” offseason?  In 2010, the Saints won the Super Bowl, (definitely not a normal offseason but welcome).  The 2011 offseason began incredibly unceremoniously, with the “Beast Mode” run.  2012?  Let’s not talk about 2012.  Now this year we have the Jimmy Graham situation.  Every fanbase in the league is looking at this situation like a homewrecker watching a marriage on the rocks.  They just assume that this is headed for a messy end, seemingly forgetting that the Drew Brees situation was far more contentious (and important to the future of the franchise) and yet that seemed … Read entire article »

12th Man Once Again Loves 12th Man

After the Super Bowl win, I wondered if Seattle fans’ inferiority complex would continue to manifest itself. As we saw throughout the Seahawks’ impressive Super Bowl run, “The 12th Man’s” favorite subject of conversation was what amazing, stupendous, previously unseen thing in which The 12th Man was currently engaged that unamazingly, unstupendously, had happened before. From causing “earthquakes” FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. To being the FIRST TEAM EVER TO CALL THEIR FANS THE 12TH MAN, Seattle fans have been busy patting themselves on the back for doing things that have been done before. Today should be no different, I guess. Seattle’s victory parade is ongoing as we speak and Seattle police are estimating that 700,000 people … Read entire article »

Narratives, Legacies, and the Power of Groupthink

“If everyone is thinking alike, somebody isn’t thinking.” – Gen. George Patton This morning we find ourselves buried under the postgame avalanche that always accompanies the day after the Super Bowl.  However, this year feels strange. Reactions are being fired at us from every corner of television, radio, and the internet. A diverse multitude of people from every region of this nation and countless others, firing away with opinions on what happened yesterday and what it all means.  Yet for the diversity of those who opine, the opinions all seem to sound the same. “Manning Choked“, ”Manning’s Legacy in Question“, “Manning Failed“. I understand why it would be easy to go along with this story line.  Denver lost by 35 points … Read entire article »

Cajun’s Super Bowl Pick

Super Bowl Time!  That’s right!  Time for Super Bowl XLVIXILLLI! (ok, so it’s XLVIII.)  Cowboy and I are going to try to do a podcast later this week breaking it down in excruciating detail but I had some words in me that just had to get out so here we go. DEN-2.5 vs. SEA at MetLife Stadium, this Sunday at 2:25 AKST.  And yes, I did the time trick on purpose.  Not often we Alaskans get to make y’all do the time conversion.  SUCK IT, EAST COAST! I’ve been eagerly consuming Super Bowl talk for the past week and I’m looking forward to more.  Good places to start are with Bill Barnwell’s discussion of Denver’s offense and … Read entire article »
