Don't under-estimate this win :)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ladies and Gentlemen: We have a TEAM. Yes there were some mistakes, and they did give up a lead, but they took it back! Not only did they take it back, that last drive that consumed all the time left ...

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have a TEAM.

Yes there were some mistakes, and they did give up a lead, but they took it back! Not only did they take it back, that last drive that consumed all the time left (8 minutes) and culminated in the winning FG as time ran out was a thing of beauty.

Five and One!

RE: Don

The last drive just killed the Eagles, we left them with no time left on the clock, how discouraging is that to a team who wants the ball one more time to have a chance to make a few plays...
Great play called by coach Payton on the winning drive, the last dirve.

Yet some will come on here and say "Oh they still aren't that impressive. We only beat one good team. The Falcons don't count because that was all emotion."

All of you skeptics, spare us. We would like to enjoy our team.

Yeah, this was a big win. Can't rationalize it away. The fact is, there is parity in the NFC. Carolina, everybody's Superbowl pick , isn't exactly blowing teams out either. Seattle & New York also had a couple squeakers. Chicago is really the only team in the NFC that's consistantly winning by mutiple scores. I like our chances against the rest of the schedule, though. Of course Baltimore (will McNair be back?), Cinny, Pittsburgh, New Jersey and the Cowgirls are all potential loses, and it's doubtful we'll win all 5 of those games, but week-by-week, I'm picking us each time. Because we'll be in all those games! And by the way, if we lose all 5, we're still 10-6.

RE: Re: RE: Don

Every win in the NFL is hard to come by. Look at how some "great teams" are doing. 5-1 is an AMAZING record at this point and I don't think any of us had them doing this well. Every week is a joy to watch and I feel more confident that we've got a shot at the playoffs tough schedule or not.

It's been 6 years since I felt this confident about our team.

Haslett's first season was pretty awesome too, if you remember.

It's a DAMN GOOD FEELING!

We handed the Eagles their asses for 30 minutes. Then were resiliant enough to take their best shot and win the game anyhow. Don't forget - this is the 2nd best tam in the NFC, undoubtedly one of the top 5 teams in the NFL at large. We beat their asses. It means a lot.

This was a game that if the Saints lost, no one would have been surprised. A good team, maybe a top 5 team, coming off a nice win against an upstart. Thing is, they faced a good team, coming off a nice win.

Don't want to play the Eagles again, they are good. But today, the Saints were better.
