Saints running back Alvin Kamara has a colorful way of looking at the end of last season.
And that color is primarily blue.
In an entertaining profile of the second-year back by Master Tesfatsion of Bleacher Report Shaquill Griffin Jersey
, Kamara riffed on the crushing end of the Saints season, in which the 17-point deficit they erased in the second half of the NFC divisional round playoff game was erased by the Minnesota Miracle.
“It’s a certain point where you f–king just do everything could do, and s–t still don’t go your way,” Kamara said. “That’s how I felt about that game. I felt like we did everything. We came all the way back, and then s–t just happened like that. That’s like some one-in-a-million-type s–t.
“I couldn’t even be mad. I was mad DeVante Parker Jersey
, of course, but it was like how does that even f–king happen? That’s not even real. It’s almost not realistic, like what the f–k?”
Somewhere, Lee Elia nods approvingly.
His greater point holds, as the Saints were on an incredible roll before Stefon Diggs‘ last-second game-winning touchdown sent the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game. And Kamara believes that momentum would have continued against the Eagles Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey
, and he clearly thinks it will continue into this season now that they’ve put it behind them.
“We’d beat the s–t out of [the Eagles] cause we was rolling,” Kamara said. “If we won [against the Vikings], I knew nobody was gonna stop us cause we came all the way back. . . .
“We know what the standard is. So, yeah, f-k Minnesota.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. I mean Eric Rowe Jersey
, not without being George Carlin.
Broncos General Manager John Elway said recently that the Chargers “may be the ones to beat” in the AFC West this season and there are likely others who feel the team is in good position to make a playoff run after finishing last year with nine wins in their final 12 games.
Those nine wins left the Chargers with a winning record, but not a playoff spot as their 0-4 start came back to bite them. The Chiefs were the division champs last year and Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said they remain on the top rung when asked about Elway’s comment on Thursday.
“That sounds like a mousetrap to me,” Lynn said on NFL Network. “That’s all I can say about that drill. We know Kansas City won this division, they had a good draft, they brought in some key free agents. To me Tre'Davious White Jersey
, that’s still the team to beat in this division. Until we beat Kansas City, we can’t even talk about playoffs and things like that. We gotta beat Kansas City. I take it as a compliment, but we have a lot of work to do.”
Lynn did say he thinks the team has the pieces in place to improve on last season’s finish and it would do them a lot of good if those pieces come together a bit earlier than they did in 2017. Womens Kalen Ballage Jersey
