When they were getting blown out, I didn't think that they had quit. I simply thought that the Falcons offense was red hot and the out-manned Saints D was getting boatraced.
BUT, the second half played out and the Gallant Saints showed heart and effort and closed the gap. Instead of getting blown out, they beat the spread in a close loss.
GO SAINTS GO! GO SAINTS GO! GO SAINTS GO!
