Alvin Kamara is still very, very angry

And it’s making him say very, very dumb things

We know that the last football game that the Minnesota Vikings won came on the strength of one of the greatest plays in NFL history when Case Keenum found Stefon Diggs for a 61-yard score. Apparently, one of the more prominent members of the team that was victimized by the play is still a little bit angry about it.

Alvin Kamara, who we last saw mocking fans at U.S. Bank Stadium when he thought his team had the game in the bag, recently did an interview where he made it very clear that he still just isn’t quite over how the game ended.

“We’d beat the s--- out of [the Eagles] cause we was rolling,” Kamara says. “If we won [versus Minnesota], I knew nobody was gonna stop us cause we came all the way back.”

The conversation gets Kamara excited for the upcoming season. He described 2017 as an “experiment” year for the Saints, and he believes everyone in the locker room knows what they are capable of accomplishing in 2018.

”We know what the standard is,” Kamara says before pausing for a few seconds. “So, yeah, f--- Minnesota.”

Now, I don’t have a crystal ball or anything, nor do I practice Santeria. Would the Saints have beaten the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game if the Minneapolis Miracle hadn’t happened? They may have. Then again, they may not have. After all, if they weren’t good enough to beat the Vikings. . .twice. . .then I’m not sure how you make the leap to deciding they’re good enough to beat the team that beat the Vikings.

But, none of us will truly ever know. Because, to borrow a phrase from noted latter-day Russian philosopher Yakov Smirnoff. . .


If Kamara and his teammates want a measure of revenge, they’ll have another opportunity to job to the Vikings on Sunday Night Football in Week 8 at U.S. Bank Stadium.
