Saints’ social media team raises trolling game in wake of another upset of Bucs
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Saints’ social media team came out as aggressively as the team’s defense following Sunday night’s 9-0 upset of the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In a pair of Twitter posts on the @Saints account, some championship-level trolling was in effect. The team first showed a revised version of the pregame predictions from the NBC Sports crew covering the game. Seven of the eight broadcasters - including rapper Snoop Dogg - picked Tampa Bay to win. The lone exception, naturally, was former Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
Next came a highlight video for Saints fans to revel in Monday morning, after a second consecutive win kept New Orleans’ playoff hopes alive. This one was simply titled, “Good Morning.”
Future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady and his Bucs (10-4) entered the game as 11.5-point favorites before being dominated by the Saints (7-7). Brady is now 0-4 in the regular season against the Saints as the Bucs’ starting quarterback.
And though the Saints’ social media personnel weren’t responsible for this meme, Saints fans will enjoy it nonetheless:
“Hey Microsoft Surface, can y’all send me a new Surface Tablet?” C.J. Gardner-Johnson asked on Twitter. “I need to give it to a friend who broke his. Thank you and Merry Christmas.”
Finally, take a look at how Coach Sean Payton weighed on one of his own:
