All Day To Throw

30 Oct

This rare photo by Michael Hebert shows a Saints defender somewhere near Peyton Manning.

 
In their last game of October 2011, the Saints fell to the Rams in an absolute debacle. The Who Dat Nation cringed at the Rams’ outplaying of a (supposedly) superior team from New Orleans. They began to lose faith, and many questioned the playoff chances of a team who could drop a game like that in such embarrassing fashion.

And yet, the fanbase would be treated to eight consecutive regular season wins, a division title, and an ill-fated run Deep Into The Playoffs.

See where I’m going with this? You like what I’m getting at? Then fuck off. Not on this blog, folks.

The SportsJoes Podcast

The Angry Who Dat records his first podcast

Another first for the Angry Who Dat: this morning I joined the Sports Cajun from SportsJoes.com for a chat.

We talked bountygate, of course, the Brees contract situation, how the fuck Mike Florio became the voice of Saints fans, and what to expect from the 2012 season (hint: not 6-man blitzes with 40 seconds left in a playoff game).

Hit the link below to listen, and don’t forget to follow @SportsCajun on twitter.

Amazing.

But with that final (or not?) piece in place at the linebacker position, the old phenomenon rears its ugly head.  Every time a team signs an inordinate number of linebackers in one offseason, the fans start howling with joy.  “THREE FOUR!” they proclaim.  Yep, we have more linebackers than we need, so we must be going to a 3-4 base set.  Come on over and sit down.  We need to talk.
