I heard the money the Saints collected from “the bounty” was paying for the water. Kind of a “giving back” program…

Saints Dismal History- You just plagiarize your own blog postYou just copied an article by several columnists and cut and pasted in a blog.. You take any of your paragraphs and google them you pull up the true writer- most of your article came from a bleacher report article dated march 2nd of this year.

Your acting as if your some writing guru.

Seriously I would have more respect for you if you had actually thought of writing that off your own thoughts rather than taking up some crazy space that you copied other’s articles.

loser.

Challenge to Falcons, stop pizzing the bed, put on your big-boy pants, play championship football. One day, you’ll stop letting the Aints, Packers, Giants, slap you around. Really, 2 points in your
last game last year?? Arthur should have apologized to the City for that one as well.

Anyway, we see you’re scared, shaking in your shoes so hard your cleats rattle, your teeth chattering and the look of a little league team on thier first game day. We need you to be men, stand up and be counted, bleed for us, swet for us, represent us, and at the end of the day, if you give it your all, and shed the aura of weaklings, of pansy boys, or falcant’s, you will show us that you are who we THINK you are, winners, proud, elite, chanpions, and MEN!

Falcons we have been with you, supporting you, cheering for with, crying with you, and it is time, that we can claim you as our SB champion…we won’t accept any more excuses…new caoches, new schemes, a learning curve…you are seasoned fballers, and the objective could be not more basic than what it is…score more points than your opponents…yeah, it IS that simple!

@ Falcon (plz this year!!??)

Agree with you 100%….well said.

Last year Atl was to “Rise Up”", and they “laid down”, (Last game vs. the G-men)…Was shameful to say the least. How can they look at themselves after that one? Asante, kick some arse, please.
