My family and I have been cheering for the Saints for many years now. I don’t really remember the ‘Aints” era, but I do know that it is saying a lot when Saint’s fans are disappointed by a close loss in the second round of the playoffs versus disappointed with an entire season. I hate that they did not win today, but it really was a great game, and should a team really win when they have 5 turnovers? I think that my heart rate has finally returned to normal; I really thought thought that they had pulled it off with that touchdown by Jimmy Graham in the last two minutes, but Alex Smith and the 49er offensive was just too strong. I hope that during the off-season they can pick up a number of players to improve the defense. Here’s to next year, and at least that loss was from the 49ers and not the Falcons.
Just for the record, B.B. and I share the same hometown. He still makes it back to Indianola, MS once a year for a summer concert.
