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.
