NFC South

Looks like it's going to be the division to beat. Top to bottom, there's going to be a dogfight. I just hope that the Saints can finish 4-2 in the division. Saints gotta have a few tiebreaks considering the common schedule.

Gotta love Seattle right about now....

And you Jake bashers should give him some props for beating up on a depleted Patriots' secondary.

It's a good thing that TB and Cincy are giving us the blueprints to beat Minn and Buffalo. Should we begin thinking that 5-0 is within reach? Or should we wait to see if last Sunday was a fluke against the Giants?

The Bucs look really tough so far. Their defense is back to the dominating defense we know them to have and Carnell Williams looks to be the real deal in his first two games. I really don't like the Bucs so this bugs me.

The Panthers beat the Patriots today and looked good doing it. The Saints beat the Panthers last week so I find this encouraging.

The Falcons were in the NFC Chapionship game last year. Their defense is good and has three very good running backs in Dunn, Duckett and Vick. I don't like this team either so their loss to Seattle today made me very happy.

The Saints are the most inconsistent team in the NFL and I really hope that they can maintain their focus throughout this year. If they continue to improve on defense and make smart decisions on offense (ie. clock management, Deuce, Deuce, Deuce) then I feel pretty confident in this team.

If the Saints win tomorrow night I'll be geeked but somewhat trepidous. They've gotten good at building me up only to smash everything beneath me.

What are those blueprints? Against Minnesota - score more points. Against Buffalo - allow fewer points. LOL

Actually it sucks...since we could have had Carolina in an 0-2 hole.

LOL. Well, I think the key to beating them will be having more points on the scoreboard when the game clock expires. If we can do that, then I think the odds are pretty good that we can pull off wins.

Now this I will agree with. Nothing would have been better than having Carolina down 0-2. Jake bashers, Brooks bashers, whatever, for the SAINTS, this would have been very good. Now we just have to do our part tonight and make sure we are still ahead of them. We would have a 2-0 record, but we would also have two NFC wins, and one win over a division opponent. The NFC wins is what screwed us out of making the playoffs last year, besides being 8-8 and losing to two previously winless teams earlier in the year.

If you are a true Saints fan you will always pull for an AFC team to beat an NFC team (that isn't the Saints) no matter what the circumstances.

I don't see how you have rooting for AFC teams beating NFC teams as being part of a "true" Saints fan. Let's just say I'm a big Cowboys fan also (though I'm not) and they were playing the Broncos (a team I'm not a big fan of)... so if I'm rooting for the Cowboys then I'm not considered a "true" Saints fan anymore?
