Who Dats react to Saints loss

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - It was a sentiment felt across the Who Dat nation.

"I was disappointed in the game today," said Tracy Deihl of Pascagoula.

Saints kicker Garrett Hartley missed a much-needed field goal late in the fourth quarter, which took the game into overtime.  A Tampa Bay field goal put the Bucs up by three, handing the Saints their second straight loss of the season.  Despite the disappointment, the Who Dats we caught up with said they're standing by the black and gold.

"You win some, you lose some.  You got to keep going," said Danny Butler of Gulfport.

"We still have time.  We still have time.  I'm thinking we can do it," said Tracy Doiron of Gulfport.

But, this hopeful sense of optimism isn't shared by all.  Some doubt the Saints, will be able to shake off the loss and keep their Superbowl ambitions in sight.

"They lost, so I'm like, Man, then they lost again. That's it. It's over now. They ain't come back from that. I'm sorry, I'm sorry Saints. Colts, we're going to take it all the way," Darrin Madison said.

Others find themselves a bit torn on which team they'll be rooting for in the post-season.

For the next few weeks, it will all play out on the gridiron.  But, for those who bleed black and gold, they say they already know at least one team that will play for the ring in Superbowl 44 - The Saints.
