Okay, so you still are walking around mumbling about what happened to the Saints’ once-promising season. You recall a formerly trustworthy pundit who happens to inhabit this space predicting a possible Super Bowl appearance. Even after slogging to a 2-4 record, loyal Who Dats rationalized by saying three of those losses came by a total of six points and just as easily could have gone the other way.
In a desperate attempt to figure out this whacky NFL season from the local perspective, I went right to America’s most popular source for answers to puzzling questions. I went to Google and punched in “teaser.” In only .35 seconds, I received 23,400,000 possible answers, and I began sorting through them to find the right one. My discerning eye immediately was drawn to website addresses for several Teasers Men’s Clubs, with locations in Twin Forks, Montana; Flint, Michigan; Key West, Durham, North Carolina, and elsewhere. The Teasers of Phoenix even awards its customers a pint of draft beer for $3 to go along with, well, you know, its other treats.

My mother-in-law, the Saints fanatic, has been talking about selling her very nice house in the Lake Terrace community and buying a high-rise condo. Thankfully, this decision has been tied up in the committee of her four daughters and their four slobs of husbands who are allowed to listen but not speak. If a decision had been made prior to Sunday’s 37-34 Saints’ loss at Atlanta, then the eight of us and probably selected teams of the New Orleans Fire Department would have spent Sunday night and probably most of Monday coaxing her off the ledge.
The Atlanta Falcons beat the New Orleans Saints in the Georgia dome 23-13. As a result of the win, the Falcons are now 11-1. The loss for the New Orleans Saints puts their record at 5-7.
Down here there is still talk of the New Orleans Saints at 5-6 making the playoffs.
San Francisco 49ers win reminded New Orleans Saints of WereDat’s
The New Orleans Saints faced their toughest opponent of the year this week, the undefeated Atlanta Falcons, and was more than ready for the task. A 31-27 win have the Saints on the road to the respectable season after the horrid start.
Drew Brees led New Orleans Saints held on to a slim lead defeating the once-undefeated Atlanta Falcons 31-27.
In the minds of some around the NFL and perhaps the commissioner Roger Goodell, today’s showdown at the Mercedes Benz Superbowl is a match between the “dirty birds” against the “dirty Saints”.
The 8-0 Falcons are coming to the Mercedes Benzon Superdome Sunday in a game that could turn the season around or forever doom it for our local heroes.
