That Shit Kinda Hurt

Raffy! Raffy! Raffy!
After three grueling days of fevered insults from a God unknown, I settled in to watch the Saints trounce the niners in a nationally televised game at my dad's house. Up 14-7 with little time left in the first half, my fever broke and I started getting sticky with sweat only to realize that Drew Brees' fuckfaced interception for 6 is what broke my fever. Yay! Booooo! Fuck.

So, with the fever gone, I convinced myself, selfishly I might add, that the pick 6 was for my benefit and since the fever was now gone, I could actually enjoy what was to occur in the second half. Well. Damn you, Drew Brees and your 14 foot high tipped pass to Marques Colston that not only nearly got him killed but also was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. I want the fever back, with a 6 in the 'W' column. Not happening. So be it.

Whatever. I'm still mad too. At all kinds of shit. The Randy Moss OPI that wasn't called that would have been an interception that didn't hurt too bad because they kicked a field goal anyway? Yeah, fuck that shit. The replay shows douche bag line judge just looking directly at Jenkins getting spun around, only to be all "nothing to see here...move along." The Joe Morgan OPI call where he pulled the defenders arm to save an interception after being pushed to the ground? Garbage. Stinky, smelly, Good Friday Crawfish Boil garbage.

Fuck it. Even with all the calls going against us, we still could have won if, Good Drew had shown up instead of Bad Drew.

"Don't kill me, guys. Won't happen again."
That's ok. This kinda shit happens to guys who throw balls into tight spaces with amazing accuracy on a regular basis. After the touchdown pass to Colston up the seam between what had to be three defenders I told my dad that I didn't think 80% of quarterbacks would have the balls to throw that pass. Having the balls to throw that pass is why we got the What the Fuck interceptions for touchdowns. Is it ok? It's ok, right? Tell me it's ok. Pretty please? Screw you. It is ok. I've learned to live with the really bad interceptions that will sometimes cost us games because of how damn good he is in 90% of his appearances.

There was more to take away from that game last night that very well might be lost in the emotion of the loss, but let's not disregard the fact that the defense allowed less points than our offense scored, which will win most games.

Falcons Owned By Saints: Business As Usual

falolcons fans
The Saints are to the Falcons what the 49ers used to be to the Saints in the old NFC. The Falcons deserve misery like no other. There are no two ways about it, and 11-2 record over the last 13 games officially qualifies the Falcons as the Saints whipping boys. They talk a big talk, but can't score from the one yard line.

Falcons receiver Rodney White seems to think that the Saints didn't go out there and actually, you know, win the game, but rather the Falcons "gave it to them". What a sad, sad, sideshow Rodney has become. He still puts up big numbers and makes plays week in and week out, but the trouble is: he just can't shut his mouth.

Following their first loss of the season and making such outrageous claims about the Falcons pedigree to go undefeated, you would think that White wouldn't be looking to give the Saints motivation for the next match up in just three weeks. But, alas, White is a clown and just doesn't get it.

Safety Thomas DeCoud knows the truth. He gets it.

"That's one team you don't want to have your first loss to," Atlanta safety Thomas DeCoud said.

A moment before, as reporters stood feet away, DeCoud was talking to a few other defensive backs.

"The bandwagon is over," said DeCoud, who then mumbled something about how the crowd at the Georgia Dome next Sunday probably will be filled with fans of the Arizona Cardinals.
