Fear the Saints?

Cut and pasted from Pro Football Talk, I know many do not like the site, but I thought it would be worth a read for you guys.




=====
FEAR THE SAINTS?

The talk in league circles is that teams believe that the Saints have worked out their early-season struggles, and that they'll be back with a vengeance as the season unfolds.

After the 2007 Saints fell to 0-4, we explained that the 2006 version of the team likely would have been 1-3 with that same opening schedule, with the only aberration being a loss to the Bucs in Tampa.

The difference between the last year and this year is that the 2006 Saints would have been hard pressed to put a beating on the Seahawks in Seattle.

Of all of the one-win teams in the league, the Saints are the one that folks believe can turn it around. They'll have a chance to move another step closer when facing the Falcons on Sunday.

Re: Fear the Saints?

So, if I'm following this correctly, Pro Football Talk predicted a 1-4 start for the Saints, only they thought the solo win would come from TB and not Seattle. So, since the Saints beat Seattle (which they didn't predict) then the Saints could even better than they first thought. Is that what they're saying?

Re: Fear the Saints?

Ok, here's little something to cool your excitement about what this article says.

From an 0-4 start a team must go 9-3 just to go 9-7 for the year. IF they can pull off 9-3, they won't even be guaranteed a playoff spot.

They may be the best 1-4 team out there, but it is going to take a ton of things going their way to make the playoffs.

Re: Fear the Saints?

it's not looking by the play of the NFC EAST, that we'll be able to take the wildcard...we'll probably have to win the division outright, which means we'll have to beat eveyone we face from our division from here on out...who dat :P

Re: Fear the Saints?

I just gon try and enjoy the season. Some guys are already to prepare for next season which IMO doesn't make sense if you call yourself a fan. Yeah...we're 1-4. But until we loose 8 games...I still have hope. I've seen stranger things happen in sports.

I'm a true FAN.

I Love em when they win. I Love em (even though I don't like it) when the lose.

So I have faith.

One game at a time.

Go SAINTS Go!

I just think it's a good opportunity to let our young talent develop and get some playing time. Cause lets face it, we've got nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
