2006 Saints Power Rankings..........
Week\18___10-6____6____Saints players aren't treating time off as a vacation. No Vegas trips this week for these guys. Instead, players are staying low-key and getting healthy.
Week\17___10-5____4____With Deuce McAllister topping 1,000 yards and Reggie Bush figuring it out (2.6 ypc and 0 TDs in first eight games vs. 4.8 ypc and 5 TDs in last seven), Saints have as good of running game as anyone in the NFC.
Week\16____9-5____6____Saints won the NFC South, but after losing to the Redskins and scoring their lowest total in any game this season, only a few players bothered to put on the commemorative hat and T-shirt.
Week\15____9-4____3____We'd have to give our MVP vote to LaDainian Tomlinson, but it wouldn't be without thinking long and hard about Drew Brees.
Week\14____8-4____7____The ''Reggie Bush has arrived'' moment came in the second quarter when he caught a short pass on the 49ers' 15, left three defenders grasping for air, plowed through two more and carried a few others down to the 1.
Week\13____7-4___10____New Orleans had zero turnovers in win over Atlanta, which leads to this stat: Saints are 4-0 when they commit zero turnovers, 3-4 when they have at least one.
Week\12____6-4___13____The Saints' defense (118 points allowed in last four games) is starting to play the way everyone expected at the beginning of the season. That's not a good thing.
Week\11____6-3____9____Even in a loss, it's oh so obvious that Drew Brees is the best free-agent signing of the season. He's emerged as the Saints' leader and best player.
Week\10____6-2____8____After a big win against Tampa Bay, Saints players heard the magic words from Sean Payton: 'See you Wednesday,' meaning they had an extra day off.
Week\09____5-2____9____Trick: It's all good football-wise in the Big Easy, but remember there's still work to be done in the city.
_______________________Treat: Where to start? Reggie Bush, Marques Colston, Drew Brees, win in Superdome reopening, first place, happy fans …
Week\08____5-1____5____He's not getting the spotlight, but Deuce McAllister's return from knee surgery this season is amazing. He's averaging 4.9 yards a carry, his career high as a starter.
Week\07____5-1____7____The offensive rookie of the year may be in New Orleans, but it might not be Reggie Bush. Marques Colston -- the seventh-round pick from Hofstra -- please step forward.
Week\06____4-1___13____It took 100 touches before Reggie Bush scored his first NFL TD. It won't take 100 more for him to score again.
Week\05____3-1___15____Yeah, it's easy to see why the Chargers let Drew Brees go. He's only completing 67 percent of his passes, thrown 4 TDs and had two 300-plus yard passing games this season. Who needs that kind of headache at QB?
Week\04____3-0___14____Emotion was obviously a huge part of it, but the simple fact was that the Saints were just the better team Monday.
Week\03____2-0___17____Yes, it's just a football game, but it should be some scene Monday when the Saints host the Falcons in their first game back in New Orleans
Week\02____1-0___24____Thirty-six carries for 151 yards between Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush. The Saints will take that every week.
Week\01___3-13___29____Reggie Bush is going to be some kind of fun to watch. That said, he's going to learn pretty quickly that running side-to-side in the NFL doesn't work as well as it did in college.
Just a friendly reminder of how hard the Saints worked and how far they had to come last year.
