It’s the no call that’s going to haunt Saints fans for the rest of their lives. It’s going to be in the back of their minds as they party their asses off during Mardi Gras. It’s going to be on their minds during LSU games. It’s going to be on their minds at the Jazz Festival. Everywhere they go – for years. Decades.
I received a text last night and it was simply, “Can’t wait to hear the NSFWBDs take on the PI.” It would’ve been wrong on my part to pump out a post last night during the heat of the battle. This one needed to simmer a little bit. I needed to see how people reacted this morning after getting a good night of sleep — or not — to see how this one feels the next day after getting absolutely hosed on a blatant pass interference.
Yep, the BDs aren’t happy and 6-7 hours of sleep didn’t help matters.
Let’s go to Rams DB Nickell Robey-Coleman to hear his reaction to the ref not flagging him on that one:
“Oh, hell yeah,” Robey-Coleman said, via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. “That was P.I.”
Robey-Coleman drilled Saints wideout Tommylee Lewis in the head (he didn’t call himself for helmet-to-helmet on a defenseless receiver, but he could have), and a penalty would have allowed the Saints to burn the clock and kick a game-winning field goal.
Saints fan just speaking the facts here:
