"Run it, run it, run a play. Stay out here."
Those were the words the Detroit Lions defensive linemen were hurtling across the line of scrimmage as New Orleans lined up to go for it on 4th-and-inches from their own 38 and leading by a field goal with 6:26 to play in the third quarter Saturday.
It was not until quarterback Drew Brees procured the necessary two yards that the Saints linemen really started talking back, taunting Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley like I can only imagine.
"You got what you wanted. Be careful what you wish for," Saints left guard Carl Nicks recounted.
