They're calling us the "sweethearts of the league."

Ravens: We won't feel bad beating feel-good Saints

In the Ravens' minds, they aren't playing just the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

They are playing, as coach Brian Billick puts it, "the sweethearts of the league."

"Everybody loves them, and deservedly so. You go in and beat them, you might as well go and beat up Mother Teresa - you know, 'You scums, what are you doing here?' " Billick said. "But that is what we are going to try to do, because there is a great deal of energy and emotion there right now."

METAIRIE — The Baltimore Ravens have never played a regular-season game in the Superdome going into Sunday’s key matchup with the New Orleans Saints, but they have played one exhibition game there.

Maybe the trip to New Orleans will have the same effect on McNair and Co. as it reportedly had on McNabb... where they said he was physically and mentally drained from visiting the streets of N.O. prior to the game. yada yada yada

May the best team win.

I hope

This gets posted in the Saints locker room before Sunday's game. I guess no one will believe the Saints are a legitimate team until we win a Super Bowl.

I don't really buy the excuse that by touring the devestation somehow the team is less likely to want to beat us. Tampa and Philly both nearly DID beat us, it was only because of things WE did that allowed us to win.

To somehow say that they don't try as hard is insulting to the Saints players who brought their game and pulled off a win.

I am not saying thats what the article specificly says, but alot of other fans and media out there are implying this.

+1.

I don't think its funny or cute, if that was Billick's intent. I also find it insulting and too close to the conspiracy/excuse crowd of Eagle/Falcon fans.

IMO, this is an attempt to "cover your arse", in the event of a loss. You know, "well we lost, but remember what I said last week", type of thing. Furthermore, I think it's a shot at the refs, if you really want to read into it. Watch his post game comments; he'll reference how he told everyone last week that we were the sweethearts of the league, and the PI call on Ed Reed was BS. Heh.
