Week 16: Atlanta @ New Orleans: A funeral with music

Ed Wyatt calls for a “jazz funeral” for the New Orleans Saints, who instead of dancing into the playoffs, bumbled and stumbled their way out of the NFL post-season.

About Ed Wyatt

Ed Wyatt grew up in Halfway, Maryland, following the Baltimore Colts like his football coach father. When he lost his Bert Jones #7 jersey at the Lincolnshire Elementary School playground, he should have taken it as an omen, since the Colts left Baltimore for Indianapolis. Ed has managed to avoid full time work by talking on the radio, smiling on the television and tapping on the keyboard of his computer. He won a number of local Emmy awards with the Seattle-based comedy show Almost Live! and hosted the Super Bowl live on Australian television for nine years. He is a graduate of Stanford University.

Week 15 – New Orleans @ Chicago: The Saints beat the ‘aints

When they were bad, the Saints used to be called the ‘aints and fans wore brown paper bags over their heads to remain anonymous. Ed Wyatt was stunned to see Chicago Bears fans bringing out the bags on Monday night.

Week 8: Green Bay @ New Orleans – “Not with a bang, but a whimper…”

Okay, so it may be going a bit OTT to link T.S Eliot’s ‘The Hollow Men’ to Green Bay, but a match that promised so much ended up being something of a rout.

About Steve Baker

Steve Baker cashed in his horses for choppers and went tear-assing around ‘Nam, looking for the shit. He’s been known to chopper in t-bones and beer and turn the L-Z into a beach party. Steve’s the defending ‘Most Pessimistic Dallas Fan’ champion and is in the midst of a life-long campaign to one day buy the Cowboys off Jerry Jones and end the madness. He’s also chief button-pusher for the Footy Almanac Podcast, so you can blame him.
