There’s no way around it, the New Orleans Saints kicked off the season yesterday in dominant fashion. With most of the sports media picking the Packers to dominate the Saints, it was quite satisfying for fans of New Orleans to see their team not only win...but look good doing it. As always, Saints Twitter was a fun place to be during game day & yesterday was no different. Here are a few highlighted reactions from the Saints 38-3 decimation of the Packers.

Man Sean just put the entire NFL on notice.— (@KevinWashJr) September 12, 2021
Jamis going crazy— Dementor (@KingHooplah) September 12, 2021
For all of the praise the Saints fanbase gave not only Jameis, but the entire Saints team yesterday. One tweet stood out yesterday that I’m sure will be a topic of discussion as the week goes on.
Chris Rosvoglou, a sports writer for the Spun & podcaster for Boot Krewe Media, had this to say after the Saints win over the Packers.
The story about today should be how dominant the Saints were. I'm sure the media will say the Packers looked awful.— Chris Rosvoglou (@RosvoglouReport) September 12, 2021
It’s hard to argue with Chris here. The story after a Saints win if you turn on most sports talk shows aren’t about how good the Saints were, but how badly the other team performed. I’m sure that the running story of the week will be focused on the misfocus of Rodgers and the lack of chemistry this team showed during the game. Regardless of what the media has to say, the Saints are now 1-0 and put the entire NFL on notice.
Another big story of the day were that Winston had zero turnovers. Much to the shock of the entire NFL fanbase, Winston showed both comfort and poise during the game while making smart decisions with the football. Apparently, the year under Sean Payton & Drew Brees has paid off for the new QB1 in New Orleans
Jameis Winston leads the NFL in passing touchdowns. Also has zero turnovers.— Danny Heifetz (@Danny_Heifetz) September 12, 2021

Jameis Winston with Marquez Callaway as his WR1: 14-20, 5 (!) TDs, ZERO turnovers, 35 point win, 130.8 rating
Another Saints player who dominated the Twitter timelines yesterday was none other than Marshon Lattimore. Lattimore played outstanding and managed to lock down Davante Adams for most of the game. If that wasn’t enough, he locked down a 5 year extension for 97.6 million dollars.
Marshon Lattimore to fans on Instagram live: I've got my feet kicked up ... Appreciate all of y'all. $100 million. ... I can't believe it, you know where I come from.— Katherine Terrell (@Kat_Terrell) September 13, 2021
