Happy Friday the 13th, sports fans.

I can remember, the summer before I went off to college, the day Richard Nixon resigned. The thought struck me that now Gerald Ford was our president, and I just busted out laughing. Then I stopped, because it wasn’t funny.

Joe Vitt, huh? Well, okay, Joe Vitt. What the hell…Payton thinks highly of him. Maybe there’s more to the guy than is readily apparent. I just hope the team doesn’t perform under his command like his linebackers unit has performed. I also hope our new linebackers will play well without a guiding hand, since that hand will be gone the first six games and busy the next ten.

As far as Saints news is concerned…take your pick of venues, that’s all there is. Payton out, Vitt in, on to the next mock draft. Speaking of mock drafts, Andrew Juge at Saints Nation has an article spotlighting five possible third-round picks the Saints may want to keep their eyes on. And over at SaintsWin, RNG is…well, pretty pissed off.

Try as they all might, Goodell—that bloated, soulless, bumbling, corporate emperor—and his pliant, errand-boy messengers of pre-packaged, self-serving media narratives cannot force this team to suck. It’s not going to happen.

    worried about this… Being pissed off about the suspensions is only going to carry us so far and I’m concerned that we’re really going to miss Payton’s fire and leadership. I’m thinking 9-7 but praying I’m wrong.

      I see it differently. I see them entering the season with a monumental chip on their shoulders. I think they’ll tear through inferior teams…and most teams are inferior, let’s be honest. But at some point, they will have a let-down and lose a game. That, I think, will piss them off even more.

      I don’t think Spagnuolo will have any trouble keeping the defense focused and ready. What worries me more than anything, frankly, is Drew Brees pushing too hard, starting to force balls like he did in 2010, and winding up throwing more than an interception a game.

        On Drew pushing to hard. Maybe, but I think Carmichael, will be more prone to use the running game. If so then this should open things up for Drew even more. I’ll go ahead and predict Drew throws no more than 13 picks this year, since it’s Friday the 13th. Stujo are you going to do a list here? There is a couple you can put me down for.

      As long as we get Drew signed I’m not worried. Our Defense, even with suspensions, and maybe because of the coming suspensions, under Spagnula, will probably improve. Couldn’t get much worse. I’ll predict 13-3 again, and at least a first round bye in the playoffs.

    Big fan of this here social club, Mr. Himself. An unabashed fan, in fact. One day when my interwebz confidence swells to proportions sufficient and lofty, I will attempt to post an image in the comments. I like to dream big like that. In the meantime, I’ll stick with rudimentary emoticons :-D

        Hell I’ll drink anything, so thanks. But I prefer a neat scotch most days.

    “Self Serving Media Narrative, cannot force this Team to SucK”. U know it, they still have come and play us, the Dome could be louder than it’s even been.
