NFC South Teams 0-1 In Week 1; Scouting New Orleans Saints Week 2

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

The Saints defense will need to make some serious adjustments in tackling and run defense. 

Bears runnign back Matt Forte gashed the Falcons on an electric 56 yard touchdown run.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has something to prove after being called soft last year and the Saints defense will need to apply pressure often. 

In the past, Cutler began to make mistakes when pressured and frustrated (you can always tell by his constant spitting). 

The Saints will need to do a better job getting pressure than they did against the Green Bay Packers. 

New Orleans secondary will also need to make serious changes.  Bears receiver Roy Williams showed he can still have a good performance.  Receiver Johnny Knox cannot be overlooked either.

Saints fans are licking their chops because the Bears will have to play the Saints at home in the Superdome. 

Who Dat Nation is looking for revenge, after not only the 2007 NFC Championship loss to the Bears, but the alleged horrid treatment of Saints fans in Chicago.

Urban legends of batteries being stuffed into snowballs and thrown at opposing fans by Bears fans are being spun like a good Brothers Grimm story. 

No matter what is said, the hype leading to this game has a championship feel to it as well as a good old fashioned grudge match.  The Saints will face off with the Bears Sunday, September 18th at 12:00 p.m. (CT).

    Jay Cutler Spitting and our Bears fans throwing battery snowballs at you. LOL don’t make stuff up, I have season tickets and Soldier field is about the pinnacle of safety. (Unless you climb on the side of it in which case… as happened last year… you could fall) . Next time instead of railing about our fans try buying us a beer and get to know us. BTW last time I went to a game at NOLA it was Saints Browns, and your fans were not being very respectful after that was over and that is something I witnessed with my eyes not heresay.

    Sorry Union, Cutler’s a spitter. It looks like he’s spitting bits of notebook paper during the game. I also have season tickets to the Superdome and we’re pretty fan friendly in my section, even to Falcon fans. The treatment in ’07 was given. Not saying it was you but you can’t control everybody. Some very close friends and family(think I’ll tend to listen to them) relayed what happened. The battery comment you’ll notice had the words “Urban Legend” and “Brothers Grimm” i.e. fairy tale. I thought most people would get the sarcasm but obviously not. Besides people talk about the Dome and our fans and it dosen’t really bother me. It usually bothers people when they take it personal. Besides every venue has a crazy story(Philadelphia Eagles fans booing Santa Claus, etc.) so try to relax. See you Sunday and thanks for reading Who Dat Dish.

    I’m not offended, trust me there! Nor am I mad, I just like a little online smack talk. You look like your grasping for things to make fun of the Bears on going into this weekend. See you game day :)

  • unionbobbyandthebigtrucks

    you’re – you got in my head with all of your logic magic!

  • Gene Higginbotham

    Understood my friend. Hey no need to grasp when it’s within reach. I’ve gotta wipe my TV down whenever Cutler has a bad series. Do you plan on making the game?

  • OsielMartinez

    As a Bears fan who will be at the game on Sunday and reading this post should I be worried about the safety of my wife at me at the superdome? I do not condone the way NO fans where treated in the playoff game, we even root for the Saints in the playoffs outside of games against my beloved bears. I’ve followed my team to many venues around the country and we have never had any issues really. How are NO fans with visiting teams?

  • Gene Higginbotham

    Osiel you have nothing to worry about. UnionBobby and I were just doing some good natured ribbing of each other. While I’m sure you’ll agree that there are “overboard” fans everywhere, the Superdome is fine. I sit in the new Bunker Club Section and we always have a good time with opposing fans….even the Falcons. Not sure where you guys are sitting but don’t be worried. You can read my article on my interview with “Voodoo Man” who loves hanging out with fans for the other team and buys them drinks. While the ’07 game may have been bad, my sister and aunt attended the Wild Card game in Seattle in January and said that was the worst(people flipping them the bird, numerous Katrina references, and one guy jumping in my sister’s face screaming, “F*** you and the f***ing Who Dat Nation!”). Some guys just can’t handle Vegas! Just get yourself a poboy(the Debris Poboy at Mother’s Resturant is excellent) or some chargrilled oysters(Drago’s tops ‘em with garlic butter and cheese..nuff said) and enjoy the atmosphere. It’ll be a good game for sure!

  • Gene Higginbotham

    BTW Osiel, speaking of Seattle, thanks for taking care of them for us in January! Everytime Hasselbeck cried about a call, an angel got their wings. Was rooting for you guys too on Sunday against the Falcons. See you Sunday!!

  • Gene Higginbotham

    @unionbobbyandthebigtrucks exact opposite, I really respect the Bears defense not making fun. But Cutler does make it easy for me, so no need to grasp when it falls in my lap! :)

  • OsielMartinez

    Thank you so much Gene, we are seating in section 617 row 33,if thats near where you seat and if you see a chubby guy with a beard a Peppers jersey and a bears hardhat, say hello and let me buy you a beer. I’ve been to New Orleans once on business and did not get to enjoy the city, but this time we are spending a few days in your fine city near the french quarter so needless to say we are very excited about our trip. Being a Chicagoan living in Texas, we will be driving from San Antonio, and are looking forward to some good Cajun food, could you recommend a good place near the french quarter? We’ll hit both spots you recommended! BTW we where Saints fans last Thursday, soooo close! Hoping for some overtime on Sunday!

  • unionbobbyandthebigtrucks

    @Gene Higginbotham Gene, you must realize we deal with Packer’s fans up here, we take nothing seriously. We can’t. We’d have gone totally crazy by now.

  • Gene Higginbotham

    @OsielMartinez you usually can’t go wrong anywhere in the Quarter brother. The Bunker Club is actually the newly renovated area on the bottom level. You’ll be above us on the opposite side in the Terrace. Just do yourself a favor and get some grub before hand since food prices are $$$ in the Dome. On the Packers game…very close. Just hope Ingram can do away with the tip toe style of running. Thought they were going to give it to Pierre Thomas who is a master at those kinds of situations(goal line leaps). Hope you guys have a great time and hopefully we might get a chance to catch up. Thanks again for reading Who Dat Dish.

  • Gene Higginbotham

    @unionbobbyandthebigtrucks touché my good friend! If I heard another Go Pack Go last Thursday…Safe to say you guys are looking forward to facing them again. Might get to see Urlacher do “the belt”. Btw a little jealous the Bears snagged Brandon Meriweather! Hoped we’d pick him up.
