No penalties by Saints

In summary, there were 2 serious injuries and 17 Grade A penalties by the Saints.   In comparison to 15 serious injuries and 19 Grade A penalties by the 49ers.

Truly, if injury is your concern, the Saints are not Sinners.  There must be a logical connection between a program designed to injure, whack or cart off players and actual on-the-field evidence.

I can see none, and there are two independent stories that give credence to my premise.  See these “Bounty Busting” articles.

    It is not about bounty program all this mess is about the Super Bowl and who’s hosting it. The NFL commissioner and the teams knows the New Orleans Saints is a elite team and they has the weapons to take the Super Bowl in 2013. Look at 2010 they were in the playoff don’t make it by beating themselves. 2011 they were in the playoff again beat themselves by turnovers. We as Saints fans watch our team every game all 4 quarters we knows our team is unbeatable and every team in the NFL. To be on the real if the New Orleans Saints can focus on their penalties, and turnovers they has the weapons to go undefeated in 2012 and win the Super Bowl. No; NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is not trying to find the truth because there is know bounty program with the Saints. They can’t match up another team with the Saints because they are hosting the Super Bowl this part in the bounty Hunter scandal KILL THE HEAD, THE TAIL WILL DIE. This is what Roger Goodell are doing to the Saints he took away the Head Coach, Assistant Coach, GManager, and some players all this is not to stop the Saints from winning the Super Bowl at home.
