The phrase “statement game” is typically misused.
What they really mean is “imperative game!” – a game in which one team or another makes a forceful declaration of its place high upon the totem pole of pigskin.

In the realm of literature, Chuck D’s mundane “It was the best of times it was the worst of times” is a statement. But Dante’s chilling “Abandon hope, all ye who enter!” is an imperative.

In football, a 21-20 victory by an underappreciated team over a highly touted opponent is a statement game.

But an explosive 48-27 dismantling of what was one of the best defenses in football that’s over at halftime is an imperative game!

And that’s exactly the message that these poetic football Florentines we call the Saints sent to the visiting Giants and the rest of the NFL Sunday afternoon in the Superdome. It was a game of the week that quickly turned into a divine comedy – a laugher for Drew Brees and the Saints that will probably go down as the signature victory by any team in the 2009 season.
Like Dante upon entering his literary inferno, visitors to the Superdome this season appear to have little hope.

Nice read. I like that site in general, not pretty and some misses, but a lot of good articles.

For a Saints organization that has been more often the joke than the joker in its 43-year history, their dominating victory over the Giants was a vocal statement – excuse, us, an imperative command! – to the rest of the league. Abandon hope, all ye who enter: the road to the Super Bowl goes through New Orleans ... and a visit there these days looks like hell.

My FAVORITE quote this season :D
