So Is everybody still celebrating the Saints 1-0 start? I know I am. Our beloved Black and Gold got their title defense off to a great start, even if it was a little sloppy at times. But just who were the best and worst of the week leading up to Thursday's tilt? Find out below the jump for the first time as we play SAINTS AND SINNERS!
Let's start with the good news first! Here are the week's Saints in no particular order.
We're talking about the Jets like we're talking about the Saints. They're the defending champs, and until they play tonight, they're the only ones can be dethroned.
This is all in addition to the fact that he's in a new Old Spice commercial. Nice one, Ray.
And we have enough sense as a country to again propel the Saints into television history. Last night's game was the most watched season opener in NFL history. Give yourself a pat on the back, Americans! Jay Preece, well... You can pat yourself on the back too, I guess, but remember the exchange rate.
And now the sinners! Dun dun dun!
- Al freaking Michaels: Look, I revere Al as one of the greatest play-by-play guys of our time, but someone has got to teach this man how to pronounce New Orleans. It's not New Or-lee-unz. It's New Or-linz. Two syllables in Orleans, Al.
- Dave freaking Matthews: I'm not saying that Dave was the worst possible act that could have played the Kick Off concert, but he certainly wasn't the best. Dave and I actually share a birthday. Did you know that?
- NFLPfreakingA: I don't know who organized (get it, "organized"? Ha!) that little show of defiance right before kickoff, but can't we at least get a little production value next time? I mean half of the visiting players missed their cue, and the entire cast seemed to be preoccupied. I can't imagine why. Hopefully the choreographers will get it together and speak with the AD about possibly cutting down the cast size in the first number.
