Saints vs Bucs Recap: Time to Walk the Plank

Last week, I predicted the Saints wouldn’t be taken down by the over zealous Bucs and their quest for redemption. Well, it takes a big woman to admit when she’s wrong. And I…Nola Chick…am not that woman. A more noble woman might say that we Saints fans should give the Bucs credit for playing a better game all around. They did everything they needed to do. They earned...
