Both men addressed it after the game.  "No, I would tell you if we were in a heated exchange. So why don't you ask him. He was into it, we were all into it.

Four straight years the Saints have lost their season opener.  "It's just one game," Drew Brees said afterward.  That's what fans want so desperately to believe. ...

So, what was probably only a couple of seconds exchange seemed like five times that. What to make of 'this' kind of confrontation after the first game of the season? Well, it was Peterson's return to his former home. And Peterson had seen much better days than his six-carry, 18-yard performance. And Peterson's always been 'the guy' in the offense. S...
