Sunday night football was awesome–our beloved Saints beat the Steelers 20-10.
Our favorite Saints cheerleader, former QB and now radio-announcer Bobby Hebert, put it best on the WWL radio talk show this evening: The Saints beat the Steelers at the Steelers’ own game”: Hard-nosed defense, punch-mouth slugging, and see who’s best.
If I had to boil the game to its lowest common denominator, I’d look at the quarterbacks. The first half was a draw as each QB measured the opposition to make successful plays. The outcome was undetermined at the break.
In the second half, the difference between Drew and Big Ben showed up: Drew figured it out, Big Ben never did. Drew completed an ungodly 20 out of 22 attempts in the half as he shredded the Steelers’ masterful defense, often using the short passing game to make up for the run that the Steelers so successfully defended. Drew’s play resulted in points on the board. Meanwhile, Poor Ben floundered to the end as the Saints defense poured it on.
What else can we say? Geaux, Saints! The “Who Dat” attack is back!
