Feet never touched the ground that season, he said. The fourth game of the season we came back to Philadelphia to play the Eagles and the West Chester Marching Band played at halftime. I played well, was presented with the game ball and we beat them.
The league brisk investigation of New England meant that whatever punishment the Patriots received (the team was stripped of a first round draft pick and fined $250,000 while coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000) would not reflect anything beyond a superficial understanding of the team transgressions. When NFL executives turned up at the Patriots stadium to examine the evidence after the punishment had been meted out, they (not the Patriots) shredded documents and stomped on video cassettes. The ostensible goal was the immediate snuffing out of any ill gotten New England advantage.

As despicable as it may sound, a win here could put Carolina in sole possession of first place in the NFC Gone South division. With the Saints traveling to Pittsburgh and Arizona visiting the woeful Falcons, it very well could happen.
Saints kicker Shayne Graham practically became a folk hero in New Orleans after making a 32 yard field goal to beat the Eagles. While that may seem like an overreaction to a relatively routine kick, keep in mind that Saints fans were forced to endure the maddening inconsistency of Garrett Hartley for much of the season.
