True to a degree. But I think respect is being earned in the national media week by week, and game by game.

This week Mike Golic picked the Saints to win in Pittsburg on the Friday NFL Live for example.
Joe Theismann has us tabbed as the best team in the NFC.

I think that the Saints still have more work to do. Their acid test are tough defenses. They lost to a top 5 defense in the Ravens, and had problems with others like the Panthers and with Tampa to a degree too. We need to prove that our offense can be productive, especially running the ball, against defenses that are geared to stop them.
