The New Orleans Saints are not a bad  road team. Far from it. But the fact the Saints are an elite team at home creates the perception they suffer on the road.

Head coach Sean Payton is not too happy with that stereotype.  Terry Blount and Mike Triplett of ESPN have the quote:

“I think it’s a typical stereotype with a dome team,” said Payton, who knows the topic will come up often this week as the Saints prepare for a Monday night road game in chilly weather against the Seahawks. “Someone needs to do a little research on it so that we don’t spend time answering dumb questions.”

We’re inclined to agree with Payton. Of course the Saints will struggle in Seattle—what team doesn’t? The Seahawks have not lost at home since December of 2011.

The Saints have a major opportunity to break the stereotype with a win against the Seahawks. Break the streak? Stereotype goes away. Then we won’t have silly media questions about the Saints struggles on the road.
