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.
