@kd: He didn’t make much of a difference for the first New Orleans game. He’s a bust.

Hmmmm… I remember a certain set of bloggers bragging about how they were going to get a complete season of “good health” out of “Pro Bowlers” Jones and Weatherspoon…

It’s not worth debating but I don’t recall anyone saying that. Doesn’t make sense to forecast someone being impervious to an injury free season barring someone sneaking kyrptonite onto the field. Oh well, what ever you say myth-meister.

Wow, ankle injuries are probably the most common and the least gruesome of all injuries. I suffered at least 30 ankle injuries throughout my time playing sports. My ankle looked like tennis balls and I was still able to do any activity I wanted within four days. There has to be something else going on with Spoon because if there isn’t he is really going to look soft.

@arizona dipsh*t, i hope your ready for a sixth straight loss because that offense cant hang with matty ice and only one defense has held this team to under 20 points and that was 19 against dallas with a third ranked secondary that couldnt do squat against atlantas passing game. Dont take it the wrong way when atlanta puts the beatdown on little skellton and that arizona team.

Unbelievable that the Saint fan been hiding under they rock all season and now that they won a few game think they City don’t stink. Don’t this define what a “Fair Weather Fan” do. Ain’t got nothing to say when times are tough, but can’t shut them up when things going OK. What a bunch of losers.

Yeah, the guy who said Julio Jones is a bust, go ahead and come back to earth now. Yes I know that absolutely no “truely good” professional football player has an off day and all, and I’m well aware that a sophomore receiver to the NFL making Roddy White(one of the leagues best possession receivers) get the second look on numerous snaps along with a major cut in long balls thrown his way, isnt very impressive but lets just pretend he is an asset to this teams vertical attack and mutually decide that your opinion from here on out not only is not worth consideration but should be over looked from here on out. But hey at least you didn’t make yourself look stupid right?
