New Orleans Saints 25 @ San Francisco 49ers 22: Who Dat Say?!?!


Holy Cow! It could might is!!  Saints win! Saints win!  Saints win on Hartley's partially blocked knuckleball FG as time expires.  The Week 2 victory provides us with much to process, dissect, analyze, and discuss, so let's get right to it.

Make the jump to start your post-game reading...


Official_Saints "I thought I made good contact with (the final kick) but when I heard the ball get tipped I just kept saying Go! Go! Go!," said Hartley.

jeffduncantp No official word on Reggie Bush's injury. He was on crutches post-game, never a good sign. Said he will have tests performed back in Nola.

Official_Saints Saints start 2-0 for 2nd straight year for the 1st time in team history. NO has now won 6 straight contests vs. SF.

MalcolmJenkins That was a great game... Gotta love the close ones now we gotta turn around on this short week and get better... Who Dat!!!

jeffduncantp ESPN reporting that Reggie Bush will be out 4 to 6 weeks. No specifics on the injury.    

jeffduncantp Check that: ESPN reporting Reggie Bush will miss at least six weeks. That's much different than 4-to-6 weeks.    

sharper42 Its killing me to be watching my guys play in san fran, still have 4 weeks till I can get back and ball. I know we will get it done tonight

dmcallister26 Big shout out to a miss. kid anthony dixon on scoring his first td on mnf

sharper42 One thing about being a saint, when you got the man upstairs behind you you can't lose. WHO DAT
