The New Orleans Saints and the Routing of the Arizona Cardinals

If there was any question as to the brilliance of Sean Payton that was put to rest last Sunday in the game with the Arizona Cardinals. The holding back of Reggie Bush for the last few games and allowing 3 losses in a row, although a little disappointing, allowed for this player to shine last Sunday and really show his stuff.

The combination of Drew Brees and Bush is just unbeatable. For me, someone who didn’t used to be a football fan until this Saints season watching the plays that Brees and Bush pulled out in the last game really gave me an appreciation for the display of the incredible skill and mastery that professional football can serve up.

An of course it’s exciting at the same time to see your team winning because in New Orleans it means so much to us. This city being such a spiritual city, and I mean that in many senses of the word, not just religious. And it can be a religious experience watching this team or any team on top of their game as the Saints were with their matchup with the Cards.

In the first 30 seconds of the game when the Cards scored an easy touchdown seemingly running right down a perfectly clear field was almost like taking candy from a baby. Or so it seemed. It was a stunner and seemed like it was a portent of things to come.

And it was but not for us, for the other team. For the Saints quickly got their act together and scored touchdown after touchdown debilitating the Cards early lead finally beating them handily 45-14.

Seeing this game gives us hope that what’s going with the Saints this season is not just a fluke but is true and honest to goodness. What the Saints have been able to pull off this season is not only remarkable for us but for any team. We just have to keep the momentum going, let the holy trinity Sean Payton, Reggie Bush and Drew Brees do their thing and take us all the way to the Superbowl.
