this pisses me off.....

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think the Browns game was encouraging that we pulled the win out when in the past we would have sabotaged ourselves, but it isn't by any means a sign of we're going to the playoffs. Not that it couldn't ...

I think the Browns game was encouraging that we pulled the win out when in the past we would have sabotaged ourselves, but it isn't by any means a sign of we're going to the playoffs. Not that it couldn't happen. Teams turn around so quick in this league with free-agency. But at least we know we're getting better. But we're definitely not the worse team in the league by a long shot. But I think the Alanta game with humble us. I'll be satisfied if we're even "in" the game and not blown out. We were 3-13 last year.

we won the first game of the season last year...

We have 15 more games so with a little luck we should at least get back to 3-13 this year.

I still stand by my definition of a successful season this year. It has two major components:

1) Beat the teams we are supposed to beat.
2) We are competitive in our division by splitting each of our rivialries.

This should translate to 6-7 wins. Anything else is absolute gravy.

BTW GB is one of the teams we are supposed to beat. And I hope that we can be competitive with the Falcons. We have Brian Scott who was a Falcon last year. Maybe we can use some inside info from him.

3-0 would be sweet no matter what happened the rest of the year.

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

SFIAH, I agree, 3-0 would make the season just about. My preseason prediction was just that, 3-0 finishing 6-10. I hope for more, that they are the cinderella good feeling story of the year. The success I ultimately hope for is more than wins or losses- solid good play. Do that, then the wins will follow. That is the legacy of most HOF coaches. Sometimes they win more, sometimes less but always have teams prepared, motivated, and playing hard. There are so many variables with injuries, simple ref calls, and the bounce of the ball luckwise, etc., that no one can predict Patriots runs or a Steelers dash from the wildcard spot. What you do see is those kind of teams consistently meeting that solid play criteria though. It has been just one game, just a spark to a flame. Already though in camp and that game I have seen some good things that have not been evident with this organization in what seems like I don't know when.

Who cares what this

willie sniffer thinks. All I can say is we need to be ready. We've always lost games like this Sunday's' game.. We should be stomping their butts and I'm hoping we will but we always seem to want to help out a team that's down.
