When the Saints go marching in….

How bad does it suck to be the Colts this morning. What do you say? You literally got your ass handed to you by the Saints.  62 points? Really?  Even if your team isn’t firing on all cylinders…you have a multimillion dollar payroll….you’re paid huge cash not to play like a Pop Warner team. This is the stuff that really makes you count your blessings as a Patriots fan….Here’s the list of records set by the Saints against the Colts yesterday.These are Madden numbers for sh*ts sake.
