Just read on saintsreport that Reggie Bush will be leading the team out of the tunnel carrying some symbolic baseball bat.  Hey, remember when we used to carry a bat around before it scared Odell Beckham Jr. and mean Ron made us put it away?  Good times.

He likely won't be carrying the bat since it's "against League rules" from the event you mentioned above, but he will be in attendance (along with a boatload of other players from our 2009 Super Bowl team) and is rumored to be leading the Who Dat chant. However, he may still carry the bat out like he did in the Divisional game against the Cardinals (which he wasn't supposed to do) and Benson will just pay the fine.

Are you really crying about it taking "Katrina refs" for us to smash you guys after it took a handpicked former Falcon on the officiating crew to beat us by only 3 in Atlanta? You guys were never in that game on Christmas Eve. They were already defeated before they walked in the Dome and it took a garbage time TD with 2:40 left in the 4th to pull within 10 after scoring a whole 6 points during the first 57 minutes and 20 seconds of game time.

I'm sure you do want us to get knocked out because I know you guys certainly don't want to have to come back down here without Blakeman...

Hand picked officiating crew???  See this is what I mean by stupid TRASH fanbase.  Three interceptions & you clowns STILL lost by three.  We don't fear you inbred swamp rats ONE BIT.  It won't matter anyway cause Carolina is going to send you slimy rednecks home Sunday anyway.

Yes, handpicked. The official and former Falcon in question, Phil McKinnely, was handpicked to officiate that TNF in Week 14. Do you want to know how I know that? Because McKinnely isn't even on Blakeman's officiating crew, he's been a part of Vinovich's crew since 2014 or so. Oddly enough, it was Vinovich's crew who also officiated last week's Falcons-Panthers game which was also poorly officiated. I'd say it's a mighty big coincidence that a former Falcon gets to officiate not one but two Falcons games in one month, both against division rivals, both in Atlanta, and both with horrendously one-sided officiating in favor of the home team who one member of the officiating crew happened to play for. I see one common denominator there. Might want to have your facts straight next time before calling someone else stupid but then again, you're a Falcons fan so I can't expect you to learn from your previous mistakes.

And yeah, we picked y'all off 3 times; one of which was a guaranteed pick-6 until the umpire (who's location on the field for the entire play is near the hash marks with the referee) mysteriously and randomly abandons his post and runs towards the sideline directly into Lattimore's path returning the INT, forcing him to change course and slowing him down just enough for Julio Jones to run him down from behind. Followed up with us successfully kicking a field goal before half, but due to a correctly called penalty, the points are taken off the board. However, we weren't allowed to use our last timeout to preserve a 10-second run off due to our penalty and re-try. So there's 3, possibly 4 points off the board directly attributed to poor officiating. If that series of events was called correctly, we're sitting on the ball or kicking the GW field goal instead of trying for a TD or tying FG.

No surprise you're hoping Carolina can knock us out because you, I, and everyone else on here know that your beloved Pigeons can't do it themselves in an evenly called game. Get bent.

Saints going all out for a wild card game lol

Yeah, just as soon since it's likely our only guaranteed home playoff game as the #4 seed. Only way it wouldn't be is if the aforementioned Pigeons can stumble their way in and out of both Los Angeles and Philadelphia with wins, but I don't expect that much out of that franchise.

I like being the underdog and hearing that we have almost no shot

Nah, man. Y'all definitely have more of a shot than some posters here credit y'all for. It should be a good game. Likely more entertaining than watching Gurley drag Atlanta's defense up and down the field.
