Saints News 5/7/13: Former Saints Kicker John Kasay Retires

Kevin C. Cox

He signed a one-day contract with Carolina to retire as a Panther, but we shouldn't hold that against him. Kasay stepped in as the Saints' kicker during the 2011 season after Garrett Hartley sustained a season-ending hip injury during the preseason. In other news, Aaron Rodgers loves the "freer" feeling of the Packers' throwback uniform pants. He seems to suggest they help him and his teammates play better. So, let's send Mickey a fax asking him to improve the Saints' accursed black pants by making them from whatever fabric those Packer throwbacks are made of. FEAR THE BLACK PANTS!

NANTZ: When the Saints won the Super Bowl, the game didn't come down to the last play, but it was the first one I called after I lost my father. The first game I ever attended was with my dad. It was in New Orleans, it was Game 1 of the New Orleans Saints franchise, November of 1967. My dad had been transferred to New Orleans, and he took his 8-year-old boy to watch the Saints, a football team that really is important to that community. So to be there for the first game in the history of the franchise and then in later life to declare that the New Orleans Saints have won the Super Bowl on national television, that one meant a lot internally to me.

"The pants are the most comfortable pants I’ve ever worn. You ask Donald [Driver]. It had something to do with that touchdown [against San Francisco in 2010, a 61-yard catch-and-run]. The greatest play in his career, one of the greatest I’ve ever been a part of. The pants definitely had something to do with it. I mean, I don’t know what the other material is. They’re so comfortable, definitely a lot freer than the yellow ones we wear."
