    Running up the score

    Do you remember when the press used to jump all over the Pat's for running up the score? I haven't heard much outrage about the Saints pounding of the Colts 62 - 7. http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/recap?gid=20111023018 Can you imagine how ESPN would be reeming us if we did it?

    Re: Running up the score

    I think most of the criticism against us came in '07, when we put up multiple 40-50 point games in a row. I guess when you do it several times, it's more "unsportsmanlike" or whatever.

    But I really never understood the outrage over running up the score. If you can't stop us from scoring, don't be mad at us for doing it, be mad at your defense.

    Not that we've ever had the score run up on us, but you'll never hear Belichick or Brady complain about this type of thing. They'll just say "Look, we got beat badly and we have to play better." That's the smart, mature thing to do.

    You are correct, so far not a peep about what the Saints did to the Colts.  For the most part, it is a "Pats" thing when it comes to running up the score.  For other teams, they simply played REALLY well!!

    The Saints have become saints for real in the media, can do no wrong.  YET.  The dog bites the hand that feeds it pretty fast in football team/media relations.

     Why care what the freaking media says or writes. They have their own agenda based on making a profit.

    It will be interesting to see what the score on 12/4 ends up being.

    The pulled Brees when it was 48-7. I guess the truth is Indy's defense couldn't stop the Saints run game in the 4th.
