Happy Thanksgiving Week
I know that some of you show up on the webpage to check out my comments on the Saints games. Unfortunately, I have to keep it short. I am writing on a computer in the local public library because my family house doesn't have an Internet connection. So I'll keep it short.
- Fred Thomas has had some good games with the Saints, and I know he's hurt. But yesterday he was Milton Mack bad. More than half the yards the Saints defense allowed was his fault. He was burnt THREE TIMES on long passes. Thanks, Fred. I blame him for the loss more than anything. It was 10-10 when he got burnt the second time, and it was 17-10 when he got burned the third time. Both of those could have still been overcome, even with all those turnovers.
- Terrence Copper is still on the list. But so is Devery Henderson. He would have had the biggest receiving day in Saints history if he wouldn't have dropped so many passes.
- Of course, I can't name any Saints receiver who didn't drop a pass yesterday, except maybe Reggie Bush.
- Drew Brees made too many mistakes again yesterday. But you can't rant on him yet, because he's the reason why we have 6 wins.
- I think it's time to retire my Kyle Turley jersey. My two jerseys are Turley and Ricky Williams. I hope you understand why I'm afraid to buy another new jersey. Every time I pick one, the guy flames out.
- I just read that the Cowboys/Giants game wasn't flexed for next week, so there's still a slim chance that the Saints/Cowboys could get the call. Of course, I'm not sure that I want America to see the Saints right now. At least until we stop turning the ball over.
And, on one unrelated issue:
- I am FULLY CONFIDENT that LSU will beat Arkansas Friday. Don't ask me why. I just have a feeling. I want that to happen. I want to get a BCS berth. I want to play USC in the Rose Bowl. I think the chances of that are less than slim, but wouldn't that be fun?
So anyway, that's all for today. Have a happy holiday. I'll be on the road and may miss the Falcons game. So my best guess is, everything will be back to normal in 2 weeks.
