After showing up late because he won his tennis club title and received a trophy so hideous his wife mocks it, Andrew Juge of The Saints Nation discusses why Steve Spagnuolo being flexible is a good thing for the Saints. Ralph wonders if an overlooked key to the rest of 2012 is the Saints getting their running game cranked up. Andrew explains why Jonathan Vilma playing might be more than just an emotional lift for the Saints, how Joe Morgan can help the running game, and why he wishes the NFC was as bad as the AFC. Ralph compares the lucky 2012 Atlanta Falcons to the 2010 Saints and Andrew predicts an ugly messy game in Tampa. *** WARNING - SOME ADULT LANGUAGE ***  Podcast Powered By Podbean
