As promised yesterday, here is your Open Thread for a live chat to enhance our (re)viewing experience of the glory that was last year's 23-17 season-opening victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
It's part of what I have dubbed All-Saints Day on NFL Network, given the amount of Saints-related programming that is airing today on the channel, and to help us get in the mood for the game, let's walk through some of CSC's pre- and post-game coverage from Week One...
Remember when this guy's elbow was on the mend while he was still hanging onto the roster by a thread? (Stu does, I bet.) Here's what Ryan Edwards thought it would take to beat the Falcons. We love Dave Choate the Falconer (even though he predicted a 28-24 Falcons win)!! Here's what HansDat thought it would take for the Saints to win (hint: one of them had something to do with SJ being gassed. Stujo4, you feeling me?).
There was some pretty sweet afterglow in the commentary immediately following the game, and a PODCAST, too!! P-Rob was in a walking boot?!?! Uh oh!! Who knew this unsung hero from the game (FPK) was actually barely hanging onto the roster by a thread? Week One prediction results (Spoiler alert: Kazmi killed it!!). Julio Roddy expertly broke down the film on the D's last stand. Andrew's player grades: offense and defense/special teams. If you want to dig deeper, here's a link to the September 2013 archives page I mined for these links.
Okey dokey, I hope we have a good crowd here today - let's enjoy the game with deja vu all over again!!
