Well, a win is a win. Our D and the fact that Drew Brees was off picked this one up. On to next week to smack the Panthers >Smile

Thats like in the Cardinals game when Fitzgerald walked off the field when Lindley fumbled. Just because it was a bad call doesn't make it okay to stop trying!

I don't think you can blame that fumble on Turner tho. He had like 4 Saints grabbing for the ball whule he was standing up for like 5 to 10 seconds. You can only hold on for so long. The whistle should have been blown.

FWIW the smartest sports writer in football just wrote an article on how history shows you should stop doubting the Falcons

Brilliant.
When I saw the Grantland link, I thought it was going to be a Simmons article. But then you mentioned that the author was a smart sportswriter, so I knew it couldn't be him.

THAT'S NOT NICE SIMMONS IS A GOD. Simmons is pretty polarizing because people hear that he talks a lot about his favorite teams. What he does with Grantland is pretty amazing though. What Grantland, SBNation, and to a lesser extent B/R are doing (looking at you scar Wink) is changing the way a lot of people look at sports media.

Read writers not sites. Lots of good guys at B/R. Lots of guys they brought over from other sites. Also lots of guys that don't know what the hell they are talking about.

You weren't here by 2009-2010, were GDT's would go over 25 pages and there would be extremely long discussions between scar and ATL (now swoosh) in practically every thread.

They disagreed on everything, was quite fun.
