Kurt Benkert invites trash-talking Saints fans to join him on the couch to watch the playoffs

New, comments

Saints fans attacked Benkert on Twitter earlier this week. It did not take long until he got to dunk on them.

The Saints suffered yet another crushing, debilitating, and shocking playoff loss on Sunday. Sean Payton coached the first team in NFL history to finish the regular season 13-3 and fail to advance past the Wild Card round, wrapping up yet another heartbreaking postseason loss.

It was glorious.

Falcons backup quarterback Kurt Benkert went down with a totally normal injury during preseason and missed the 2019 regular season. He has been active on Twitter through rehab, including this Tweet on January 1st, which drew the ire of the Saints fanbase.

Overlooking the fact that buying a child a Drew Brees jersey may be a form of child abuse, Saints fans wanted to let Benkert know the Saints were in the playoffs.

Do Saints fans really care about Atlanta’s backup quarterback? Apparently so, after they barraged him with Tweets like this one.

This was a bold move by this Saints fan considering what late-season Drew Brees looks like and the team’s tendency to continually choke in the playoffs in the last decade. As we now know, it only took a few days for these tweets age poorly.

Benkert did not forget.

Saints fans can enjoy watching the Super Bowl on their couches for the 10th time in the last decade. Benkert will bring nachos.
