Black and Gold B.S. – The Falcons Blew a 16-Point Lead with 11:12 Left in the 4th Quarter

Lifelong friends and self-professed New Orleans Saints nerds Jacob Krasnow, Sean Haspel and Allison Pratt ~tchoup~ it up, exploring the joys and sorrows that come with the fandom of their favorite football team.

Black and Gold B.S. now has its own feed on Apple Podcasts! Be sure to like, subscribe and leave a 5-star review – even if you decide to slander the hosts in it. In fact, chaos is welcome.

This week, the gang does a jig on the corpse of the Falcons (and Atlanta as a whole) after the team blew a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter; celebrates the return of Michael Thomas: horror movie monster; and Jacob wonders aloud whether NFL refs are actual humans or if they’re born out of the mud like the Orcs in Lord of the Rings.

Time codes:

1:20 – The Saints pulled off an epic win but should we be worried about the sloppiness?

15:17 – NFL refs continue to lower the bar for success (or failure?)

16:43 – Is there cause for concern regarding offensive and defensive lines, and the defense in general?

22:11 – The Bucs looked old and vulnerable against the Cowboys

29:15 – Week Two predictions…will the Saints win by 90??
