    The New Orleans Saints (2-4) suffered yet another crushing, hard-fought loss on the road against the Detroit Lions (5-2) on Sunday after allowing 14 unanswered points in final four minutes of regulation.

One particular reporter learned the hard way in the news conference that followed Sunday's game—which the (2-4) Saints lost to the Lions, 24-23. Things got a bit chippy in the presser after the game.

He then had his playcalling come into question regarding how he managed an offensive series late in the fourth quarter. The Saints head coac…

  • Goodbye To All That
    This is my last post here, because I'm done with the NFL. So let's get one thing straight from the beginning: this is not a response to the Saints' loss at Seattle. Actually, I had been planning something like this for quite a long time, to be posted after the last game of the season—whatever that game was, however it ended. This is all about the damnable behavior of the so-called men behind the current NFL.

    Three and out. Savor those words. Let them sink into your brain and emboss their shape on your cortex. Three and out. The phrase describes almost perfectly the course of this, one of the epic losses in the long, tawdry history of New Orleans Saints losses. It describes the Carolina offense, which was helpless until it wasn't. It describes the Saints' offense, which needed just ten yards to seal a victory already won, and instead gained no yards at all. I wonder: does it describe the end of our season?
