“Our Fans Travel Good. That Helps A Lot”

October 11th, 2011

Times-Picayune reporter Bob Fortus ran around yesterday asking Saints players what they made of the Bucs getting mauled by the 49ers.

You can read about it here. Saints cornerback Tracy Porter also elaborated on this Sunday’s game and is excited to see New Orleans colors in the stands.

“Playing on the road, all the odds are against you,” Porter said. “We look at it as adversity. We’re pretty good playing against adversity. And our fans travel good. That helps a lot.”

Joe sure hopes there’s not a mess of black and gold among the home crowd Sunday, though it’s probably inevitable.

    Hopefully the fans possess a better grasp of grammar.

    Putting up only 3 points in the 1st quarter against the mediocre 49ers and then getting shut out completely by them the last 3 quarters while schooling the Bucs on scoring certainly doesn’t bode well for the Bucs… That’s not going to draw fans to fill seats, ESPECIALLY against the Saints.

    Damn Mikeck, you stole my thunder. Your response is gooder than mine.

    Tye, why do refer to a 4 – 1 upcoming team as mediocre? In the NFL a 4 – 1 record is great, not matter the schedule etc. This is a typical season when a few teams are better than expected and vice versa. No one gave the Bucs a chance against the Saints in 2009 or 2010, but they split both years with them. Many on this site swore ATL was going to come down and whoop the Bucs, but they did not pull it off.

  5. McBuc Says:

    sorry for the typos….

  6. Espo Says:

    I don’t know about travelling well, but there is a large fan base already here. Theres a few Saints bars here and I’d be more upset about it if the food wasn’t just so damn good!

    I amazes me when I hear “Our team travels good…” knowing that this guy was in college. I guess I won’t be referring any of my family to Indiana University. Apparently their English teachers are broken.

  8. Espo Says:

    You’re referring to a group of people who think “whodat” is an actual word.

  9. Capt.Tim Says:

    I heard Indiana U. Is the Bestest place to make your grammar more gooder!!
    Remember their Motto- ” come to I.U., We are more better than da rest! Really!”

    Yeah, I’ve met some Saints fans. In this case- like team, like Fans!

  10. DCBUCSFAN Says:

    I just hope the Bucs don’t make a mess on the field Sunday. I could care less about what is in the stands!

  11. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @Capt Tim, It be “make YO grammer MO gooder”, foo.You need ta learn sumfin. Go back to skoo…… preferably Indiana University. lol

  12. Mauha Deeb Says:

    I lived in New Orleans for 3 years….. I am not exaggerating when I say the majority speaks like that.

  13. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    They might sound like idiots when speaking, but they sure can play some football. I hated to do it…but I had to pick the Saints in my pick ’em pool this week. I just don’t see the Bucs being able to compete against the top ten teams in the league until later this season if at all this year. Sucks to admit that, but I believe it to be true unfortunately.

  14. McBuc Says:

    WOW, FLBOY…THey make you turn in the picks this early! What if Drew goes down on Thursday?

  15. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    McBuc…I turn in the picks by Wednesday so I don’t have a chance to have doubts and second guess myself. It works for me. I’m in second place out of 500 people so I’ll keep doing it this way for now. Hopefully a top QB won’t go down in a weekday practice and ruin a pick for me.

  16. McBuc Says:

    FLBoy, keep to what is working! I am sure Breeze will be fine. I hope you miss that pick, but hit on the rest of them my man!

  17. stimpy Says:

    The bucs will win this game.

    Thats right, i said it!

  18. Capt.Tim Says:

    Well, we got Tanard back. We are a sure bet! Sorry, Flboyindallas, but the Mighty Tanard changes everything!, lol

  19. patrickbucs Says:

    I have 4 friends from New Orleans that always come down for the game in Tampa and I go when Tampa is there. There are a lot of “Saints” fans that travel well in the Southeast due to they were displaced by Katrina and never moved back. The other is they won the Super Bowl a few years back that always gets you so more fans for a while.

  20. SteveK Says:

    Anybody see the cheap shot by Tracey Porter on steve smith last week?

    I hope he tries that crap on his and he gets jacked in the jaw with a Blount fist.

  21. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    I’d love to be wrong. I’ll take a Bucs win over a pick ’em win any day.

  22. rickster Says:

    I hope no one gets there jaw jacked by blount’s fist…
    we need him.

  23. Adam Says:

    Funny… New Orleans fans don’t seem to travel when the largest hurricane in history is heading towards them…..

  24. Al Says:

    @Adam yikes dude! Not cool

  25. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Yeah for real Adam, not right. I cringed when I read that.

  26. Capt.Tim Says:

    Ya can’t loot if ya leave!!

  27. Bobby Says:

    That was a typo by Joe. It should have read…”Our fans travel. Good. That helps a lot.”
