You didn’t think there was any possible way the Saints could screw the Vikings tonight did you? Well you thought wrong.
The Saints, even without knowing it or trying to, stuck it to the Vikings.
You know that trade the Browns made to get up to #22 and get Johnny Manziel? The same trade the Vikings were trying to make before Cleveland swooped in?
That trade only happened, according to Jay Glazer, because the Saints took WR Brandin Cooks after their own trade up.
Yup, it’s true. Had the Saints not gotten Cooks, the Browns would have waited for him to fall to them and would not have moved up for Manziel.
The Vikings would have been able to make the deal with Philadelphia and get Manziel themselves.
So, the Saints are the reason Johnny Football is in Cleveland right now instead of Minnesota.
And you thought you hated the Saints before? We will remain strapped to that particular karmic wheel forever, evidently.
