    Crazy how we used to play the CB right up at the WR - must be the rule changes that have changed that for us.

    When they came out of that tunnel was when I knew they were going to win. One of my all time favorite productions - The Silence of the Rams...

    They just looked so stunned almost from the outset, like they were expecting something entirely different.

    And poor Madden - everything he said we'd do, Tom did just the opposite.

    4th offensive play and they're talking about Brady's ankle :D

    Law is one thing, O T I S was big and physical but not all that skilled or fast at that point. I'm not sure he'd be playing like that with today's rules.

    how big was OTIS?

    I always loved BB line to Pioli after the game "Can you believe we won with this team?"

    Listed at 5'11", 190 - not all that big I guess but bigger than we've got and he played big.

    That was my reaction watching the lineups scroll by at the start :eek:

    It's kind of strange watching than years offense, I've gotten use to this years crisp moving one. This feels like Bronze Ages. The defense was better though.

    Honestly, I don't think the defense was about the same. We gave up the same number of points (2 more this year) and from a quick look at scoring stats, scoring is about the same now as it was then.

    It makes me want to cry watching this game, remembering the "IT'S GOOD! IT'S GOOD!" moment. The joy, the disbelief...just incredible.

    I know it's easy to get caught up in everything, to be anxious for the upcoming game, to take all this success for granted, but I hope everyone takes the time to appreciate what this franchise has done the past several years. It really hits you watching these past games.

    TY LAW TD!!!

    "7-3, that's the first time they've led" oh really, Pat??

    I love watching this game but man we got lucky that flag wasn't thrown on the hit on Faulk out of bounds.

    Wish we had Law on the other side from Samuel. What a solid tandem that would be.

    No kidding. I wonder how much more money he ended up getting than we offered. It's hard to believe we haven't been in a SB since he left, it seems like forever ago when he was here now.

    True - maybe that's why it seems so long ago.

    I still get goosebumps when I see the team introduction. Even though I almost know this game like the back of my hand, I still watch it whenever its on.

    That's probably my favorite TD of all time. It's right in the corner of the Superdome where I sit for Saints games.

    I forgot all about Grant Williams and how much he stepped up in this game. That block on the 3rd and 2 just before the end of the half was awesome.

    Ahhh...Bono is playin' our theme song. :D

    Ty never made any more leaving here than the offer that was on the table. Last time I checked he was down $1M over the 4 years. But then we won it all with Asante Samuel and Randall Gay in 2004. That is why Bill won't pay 8-9 bazillion for a corner in this system. Ty was a more talented athlete than Asante, and a lot more physical shut down corner - but Polian rendered those moot.

    Thanks, I've wondered about that the past few weeks - money being equal I bet he'd have liked to be on this team the past few years.

    I forgot how well Antwain Smith played in this game. Some good runs in there and he outplayed Marshall Faulk.

    Maybe that's why Marshall is so unattractively bitter...
