I know we're overdue for Saints talk on the Yellow Blog. Just let's get through the election first. Suffice to say last night came as a welcome relief from the mounting frustrations of this year in football. This bit was particularly gratifying.
The 2012 season has been one long story of denied catharsis. Saints fans looking for revenge for the many hardships imposed on them by Goodell have had their frustrations compounded by the 0-4 start and again by the blowout in Denver just as things began to look not so bad for a moment. LSU fans waited all year to get one more crack at Alabama and then.. okay I'm not ready to talk about that.
The point is, unless the Saints figure a way to be one of those rare 7-9 playoff teams and then Marshawn somebody out or something, the only hope left for anything approaching the karmic payoff fans believe they are owed is to beat Atlanta this week.
Or, at the very least, we can get to work completing this statue.
The "unknown punter" needs a Falcons jersey. At least for this week it does. Does anybody have one handy? I'm afraid to even ask this guy.
