Where there's smoke, there's fire. The Saints 2012 season went down in second half flames today. - Chris Graythen
Working in tandem with one of the most profanely impactful game-changing replay review calls, the Saints combined with the officials to turn a 24-13 lead into a 44-38 loss to close out the 2012 season.
As the 2012 season and year mercifully draw to a close, the New Orleans Saints, with an assist from a travesty of a replay review from the refs in the third quarter, somehow turned a 24-13 game into a 41-24 laugher (or slaughter, if you're violently-inclined), and the Carolina Panthers finished strong to win, 44-38.
Some records were set and tied along the way, both good and bad, but I'll let someone else write about that.
It was a very crappy way to end the year, and I'll just do my best to get out of the way and let our comments on this pitiful end to a pitiful season pave the way for a better and brighter 2013 for us all.
Thanks to everyone here @ CSC for a sometimes fun year, and always for bringing your "A" game. Time to retool for Payton's return.
