i think atl should be number 1 on this list...vick will be suspended atleast 3 games-imo-and will probably go to jail for a few years....they traded away shaub...a team with no qb...a lot of turmoil!

...it's been smooth sailing for the Saints because the Saints finally have people of character from top to bottom. And it will be smooth sailing for a while.

Quite frankly, I am a little wary of all of this off-season positive publicity. I liked it better when we were below the radar, especially with our schedule.

Our first month's schedule is tough. The Saints may be America's new adopted team now, but the NFL is still sticking it to us.

lol me too. but we are doing fine, just because teams expect us to be good, doesnt mean they will beat us. its not like we went out and got those big name players, going to get the solid, high character players is what the analysts are liking

I wish they would jump of our band wagon. I liked it better under the radar too.
All the teams in the south scare me. Carolina will be back in top form, as will Tampa and well Atlanta is Atlanta you never know what team will show up each week.
Sweeping the NFC South is the first step.

"Under the radar" is relative. Not because the media doesn't talk (or doesn't talk ill ) about the Saints is cause for the teams the Saints play to ignore the Saints. Other teams' coaches don't look to ESPN for scouting reports.

In any case, there is no "under ethe radar" this year. When you think of the coach the Saints have, the QB they have, the RBs they have, the WRs they have, the lnes they have, the performance of the entire team last year, this year, expectations have to be high, and everyone is going to know when the Saints are coming to town.

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

Agreed-
The point I made was primarily about our players reading their own headlines. Last year they were hungry, overachieving. Once we would get on a roll, though, we stumbled- Baltimore, Washington & Cincy were all bad, unfocused losses.

This is one of the reasons I hope Patten makes it- we need that veteran come-back-to-earth presence in the locker room.

Good point. Patten - even if he's not an impact player on the field - can be am impact on the locker room. I hope he brings rings in and tells the guys what it takes to get there.
