Capitalizing on three Aaron Rodgers interceptions, the Saints ran away with a Monday Night Football game that went from first-half shootout to second-half execution shooting, winning 51-29 thanks to an offensive onslaught powered by Drew Brees. Brees completed 20 of his 26 passes for 323 yards and four touchdowns, picking apart the heralded (and wildly overrated) Packers secondary.
But, since it was Monday Night Football and the Packers were playing, the story wasn’t really about Brees and the Saints. According to Tony Kornheiser, this game was all about Brett Favre. “Hey Jaws, don’t the Packers HAVE to be wondering about whether they made the right move by trading FAVRE?” Repeat that sentence for three hours, and you’ll have the gist of last night’s transcript.
I try not to complain about announcers, because anything after the combination of Joe Theismann and Mike Patrick is a gift, but Jesus Harold Christ is Kornheiser horrible at his job. Just try to sit through MNF without booze. I dare you.
