Tight end Jimmy Graham and backup quarterback Chase Daniel of the New Orleans Saints both tweeted Wednesday night that workers at Atlanta's Hartfield-Jackson International Airport egged the Saints' bus as the team arrived in town for its game against the Atlanta Falcons on "Thursday Night Football" (NFL Network, 8 p.m. ET).
Wow, as we’re boarding buses on the Tarmac @ Atlanta airport, we start getting eggs thrown @ us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!— Chase Daniel (@ChaseDaniel) November 29, 2012
Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! "RISE Up" smh— Jimmy Graham (@TheJimmyGraham) November 29, 2012
The NFC South powers have developed quite a simmering rivalry in recent years (despite what Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton says). Falcons wide receiver Roddy White said earlier this month that he "don't like nothing about the Saints. The colors. The city. Nothing."
