This upcoming season provides the New Orleans Saints with an opportunity to get some revenge for losses they had in 2011.

The first big match up of the season is week 4 at the Green Bay Packers.  These two teams started off the 2011 season in a huge way combining for 76 points.

There were also two kick returns, one by rookie Patrick Cobb(Green Bay)for 108 yards, and a punt return by Darren Sproles(New Orleans) for 72 yards.

Green Bay took the early lead with three touchdown passes by QB Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter.

But Drew Brees, who also threw three touchdowns, and the Saints would scratch their way back by the end of the game, losing on a failed fourth down run by rookie Mark Ingram.

This was a tough loss for the Saints, and one of the most exciting games of the 2011 season, and I don’t expect neither the Saints nor the Packers to disappoint in 2012.

Another game the entire Who Dat Nation, including myself,  is dying to see is the week 12 rematch against the San Francisco 49ers, which also featured a boat-load of scoring the last time these teams met.

    The New Orleans Saints don’t have a grudge against any team we come to play ball like always but we not going to take any wooden nickels from no team. We coming to take what the NFL and Roger Goodell took from us our name and our respect this is what we want and going to get it. New Orleans Saints is not a team that you can push buttons on we are not playing for the NFL we playing for our owner, our coachesi, our general manager, most of all our fans so truly loves us. We the New Orleans Saints are hosting it and we going to win it do we need to say the rest. (SUPER BOWL 2013)!!!

    LI Saint; With you riding with me man I’m sure the Saints will alright we has a surprise for them all. LI Saint; I’m looking at no losses and high scoring games for the Saints.

    larryjames836, I see 11 wins easily after looking at the upcoming schedule with the Saints able to “steal” 2 more. I also see another NFC South Crown and a deep run in the playoffs. Like i said before nothing would be sweeter, and I mean nothing than to have the dictator (Goodell) have to stand on that podium in the Superdome in New Orleans and have to hand that Lombardi trophy to Tom Benson and the rest of the Saints. Bless You Boys!! GEAUX SAINTS!!!

    @JamesMorse; IT WILL HAPPEN JUST AS SHOW SAYING WHAT YOU SAYING THEY HAS A LOT TO WIN FOR THE ONLY TEAM IN THE NFL THAT EVER PLAYED WITHOUT THEIR HEAD COACH AND TOOK THE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

    @larryjames836 …I’m w/ U larryjames. We’re def. doing what needs 2 b done 2 try & improve the defense. I just hope Loomis keeps his word from his press-conference & gets #9 signed! W/o Brees, our Saints won’t b sh#t.

  • larryjames836

    @JamesMorse ; Mickey Loomis knows we need Drew Brees but he also knows the defense need some rebuilding I think he made the right move. I don’t think Mickey Loomis will get national TV and in front of Mr. & Mrs. Benson. Drew Brees is the last part of the puzzle.
