As tough as it is, we need to move on and get back to legitimate football.
After the Green Bay Packers “loss” to fall to 1-2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, the Packers somehow must regroup and play the New Orleans Saints Sunday at Lambeau Field. The Saints enter the game a somewhat surprising 0-3 on the season. With the loss of head coach Sean Payton for the entire season thanks to the Bountygate scandal, the Saints seem to be a team without a direction.
The Packers “lost” to the Seahawks 14-12 on perhaps the most controversial call in NFL history. With the regular referees back on the field, the officiating hopefully won’t be something the Packers need to keep an eye on. The Packers defense kept the team in the game after the offense once again sputtered, mainly in the first half when Aaron Rodgers was sacked eight times.
The Saints enter the game after losing on a last minute kick at home to the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24. They currently have the worst defense in the league, giving up a whopping 477 yards per game and 216 on the ground. On top of that, quarterback Drew Brees seems to be struggling without Payton calling the plays. Brees has thrown seven touchdowns in three games but also has five interceptions.
