Week 15, Bucs at Saints: Trouble No More ~SaintsWin~The past 11 months have been neither enjoyable nor encouraging but, like many things in life, they turn for the better after awhile. In a seeming moment the discontent and disillusion faded, with hope and a promise of redemption assuming their place.
So begins the transition to the 2013 Saints' season.

We are hope despite the times ~moosedenied
~So much for the ridiculous notion that the Saints had "given up" or "don't give a shit anymore." So much for fans resigning themselves to 1970s-style Saints football for the next ten years because Roger slammed the window shut. So much for the offense having lost the Magic. So much for the defense being hopelessly, irredeemably shitty. So much for Mark Ingram being The Next Troy Davis. So much for Joseph Morgan being The Next Onome Ojo. So much for Jimmy Graham being a one-year-wonder. So much for the 100 Million Dollar Man being in the early stages of being washed-up and/or having lost his edge. So much for this team being a shell of its former self. Sunday's performance reaffirmed that the killing machine of the last three years is still in there somewhere. Feel free to exhale now.

Saints vs Buccaneers: A Skunk Never Smelled so Sweet ~Saints Tailgate
~One really cool thing about the game is the perception that the players were playing for their jobs. I didn’t see that today; I saw guys playing for pride. I saw guys who remembered they were supposed to protect their home turf, and thanking the fans who bought the tickets and came to see them play.
