Everyone's got an opinion. He wasn't that far off on a lot of things. Most of the article was pretty complimentary actually.

With that said, I too hope he eats his words

"the defense just isn't good enough to put this team on par with AFC powers like Indianapolis..."

I love that line...what a moron.

I should have read: "We'll see game one if this defense is good to put this team on par with AFC powers like Indianapolis..."

It's our first game and one of our biggest challenges. If we can start the season beating the Super Bowl champions then our D proved something. Then again Indy's D was the worst in years to win a SB, so who needs a top ten D when you've got the best O in the league?

I posted an article about how "offense wins championships" in the NFL these days. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/column...ohn&id=2910089) it's a pretty interesting take.

I don't know it has been said many times over you have to have a solid "D" to put away a power house offence but even that will only get you half way there to getting a “W” at the end of the day

But lets get serous…
we all know the saints have a power house offence
but I think these idiots are overlooking one thing
last season this defensive unit really came together,

personally I’m glad that all of them are underestimating us and I have faith that come game day they will bring the pain and not just because I have always had faith but because they proved last season that they can pull it off

one last thought on this I personally can't wait to see our Defensive linemen sitting on their QB's chest

sounds like the jealousy is getting as deep as the … is in between there ears

the only thing he forgot to mention about the saints was,
they were one game away from the superbowl and while i agree the defense may not be elite they don't have to be.
they just have to be good enough to win....
i did not think the colts defense was elite and they won the s.b.
