Saints Can’t Stop Marshawn Lynch Yet Again In Sloppy Loss To Seahawks

CBS Houston

By Danny Cox

Going into Seattle, head coach Sean Payton knew that the Saints wouldn’t have it easy. The entire team knew it was going to be hard to come out of there with a victory, but they swore it would be different than the thrashing they took from the Seahawks six weeks ago.

It was a different game, but the outcome – for the Saints – was unfortunately the same.

Coaching Grade: C-

It really wasn’t too bad of a game called by Saints head coach Sean Payton, but there was one call in particular that ruined the whole day. With just over four minutes to play, the Saints faced a fourth and 15 while down by eight. Instead of going for it, Payton called for Shayne Graham to attempt a 48-yard field goal.

A 48-yard field goal attempt…into the wind.

Graham’s kick wasn’t even close; the Seahawks took…

A lonely quest for scientific fact on GMO crops


Rainbow papaya, GMO and grown on Hawaii for decades = 3/4’s of the papaya crop

From the moment the bill to ban genetically engineered crops on the island of Hawaii was introduced in May 2013, it garnered more vocal support than any the County Council here had ever considered, even the perennially popular bids to decriminalize marijuana.

Public hearings were dominated by recitations of the ills often attributed to genetically modified organisms, or G.M.O.s: cancer in rats, a rise in childhood allergies, out-of-control superweeds, genetic contamination, overuse of pesticides, the disappearance of butterflies and bees.

Like some others on the nine-member Council, Greggor Ilagan was not even sure at the outset of the debate exactly what genetically modified organisms were: living things whose DNA has been altered, often with the addition of a gene from a distant species, to produce a desired trait. But he could see why almost all…

Seattle Puts the “D” in “We Dat!”

CBS San Francisco

By Matthew Asher

Last week the New Orleans Saints were able to get their first ever franchise playoff win as an away team. Seattle’s defense made sure they ended the Saints good fortunes on the road as the Legion of Boom was able to hold off Drew Brees and the Saints passing attack for the second time this season as they win their Divisional Round game 23-15.

The Good

Marshawn Lynch gets an A+

Get the Skittles ready! The last time Lynch faced the Saints in the playoff game was during the Beast Quake. And while this game may not have the legend of an earthquake during any runs, Beast Mode certainly lived up to his nickname.

In the first half, Lynch was responsible for 15 of the Seahawks 21 rushes, had 69 of their 95 rushing yards and scored the lone touchdown of the game. By the end of…

a darkness inside the light

Work in Progress...

hot tears streamed down her face as she sat patiently. this overwhelming connection to the father she never had  grabbed her by the throat. it choked her. gripped her chest and weighed heavy as she tried to breathe. she slowly looked into the framed mirror. saw someone quietly sitting there she did not want to see. saw the evil she came from. the evil she thought she could consciously hide from. but there it was. staring at her with its tear stained cheeks. she tightly squeezed her eye lids shut, trying to block out the image of her hands.

“not my hands. not mine.” she screeched inside her head. but the images kept coming. images in black and white, choppy, soundless on old celluloid film. she saw herself walking to her car. her shift had ended at 7pm but there were emergency admissions at the hospital, so she stayed four…
