New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks In NFC Wild Card Playoff
Written by 

The New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks will battle again this year, but this time, it will be in the NFC playoff game and in Seattle’s Qwest Field. 

The game is scheduled for Saturday at 3:30 pm (CT) and will feature the 11-5 Saints against the 7-9 Seahawks.  Seattle won the fourth seed after beating the St. Louis Rams 16-6 on Sunday night.

Earlier during the day, the Saints lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-13 in the Louisiana Superdome.

In November, the Saints beat the Seahawks in the New Orleans 34-19 with Drew Brees passing for 382 yards and with four touchdowns passes, and with Chris Ivory and Marcus Colsten having banner days for the Saints.

Ivory suffered an injury on Sunday’s game against the Bucs and Colston did not play due to a surgical procedure on his knee earlier this week.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future.

It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
