Look, I'm not superstitious enough to think that a player who has been aptly nicknamed 'The Magic Man' is somehow going to mysteriously effect the outcome of football games with his ability to do clever card tricks. That said, I'm also not going to act like employing someone who is capable of wizardry is going to hurt a team that is a season removed from finding multiple, mind boggling ways to piss away football games.
I know that the Saints traded for Jon Dorenbos because he's a trusted long snapper, and their starter at that largely unrecognized position was hobbling around in a walking boot just weeks before the start of a crucial season. However, after witnessing losses that caused me to slap myself to prove what I was just watched was actually real life, I would have been completely fine with Sean Payton coming to the mic and saying "we traded for Jon Dorenbos with the hope that his mastery of the unknown can reverse whatever hex has this fucking team finishing 7-9 regardless of circumstance".
Hell, a 7th round pick that probably wouldn't make the roster two years from now anyway almost seems like a bargain price to pay for a guy that might be able to bewitch this team into believing in itself. To disagree with that premise, you'd have to have actively forgotten how haunting some of those losses were. Not only that, but you'd have to have actively forgotten that one of them was the result of a long snapper (that doesn't have a command of the unseen) getting hurdled in a fashion that allowed for a game losing 2 point reversion...
....so yeah, call me crazy, but I'll take 'The Magic Man' at that cheap of a cost.
