The Saints are going to have to dig deep into themselves to bring the heat this year.
Replacement refs, the election, the economy. There are a lot of reasons the 2012 football season seems to be one of the most lackluster in memory. Is there still fire? Yes. Is that fire still in players' bellies? Hell yes, and it's time to come out. Let's hope the rest of the NFL follows the Saints' lead and the rest of this season finishes with a huge, explosive, gut-level bang. A smelly bang.
