2-4 and looking ahead

Alright boys we're 2-4. To some of you, you're thinking big deal... we still suck. That's fine... if you don't feel upbeat with two straight wins, I can't help you.

Here's a look at the rest of our schedule...

Oct 28 @ SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS 3:15PM
Nov 04 vs. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS 12:00PM
Nov 11 vs. ST. LOUIS RAMS 12:00PM
Nov 18 @ HOUSTON TEXANS 12:00PM
Nov 25 @ CAROLINA PANTHERS 12:00PM
Dec 02 vs. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS 12:00PM
Dec 10 @ ATLANTA FALCONS 7:30PM
Dec 16 vs. ARIZONA CARDINALS 12:00PM
Dec 23 vs. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES 12:00PM
Dec 30 @ CHICAGO BEARS 12:00PM

Now I'm not going to sit here and try to be Captain Sunshine but our next 8 games, a majority of them look winnable. It's time to stop being so dull... we're slowly turning our season around. There's also plenty of room left on the bus.

Talking Re: 2-4 and looking ahead

At last, a couple of wins, we now officially have a winning streak. Ye! Ha! I know there is still a long way to go in this season, but at least we now have something to cheer about.

Geaux Saints!!!!!

Jacksonville, Eagle and Bears are the toughest. I would like to see more Pierre Thomas. reggie made plays whne we needed them, but not having Deuce makes all those decoy plays unavailable.

Hopefully they'll win 3 in a row which would put them at 3-4, not bad.
The Bucs loss today, that really made the win today substantial.

Agree on Jacksonville. Not so sure about Philly or the Bears.

Truthfully our focus needs to be on division games. We get each of our division foes for another round this season. It is imperative that we secure wins in each of those games. A winning division record will go a long way towards the team's success this season.

I always see the season in terms of the groupings against the other segments we play during the season. Let's recap:

Division: We really needed that Carolina game. We need to finish the sweep against the Falcons and split with the Bucs and the Cats to be successful in this group. Yes that means going 3-0 in the division down the stretch.

AFC South: Best division in football by far. They will continue to pound on our division. We can actually steal one away if we can find a way against Jacksonville. I don't expect anyone else in our division to break .500 against this group. I hope against hope to break even but frankly would be satisfied if we split the remaining two games.

NFC West: Weak sisters of the poor. Every game against this group is vital. We're off to a good start taking out Seattle on the road. We need to continue by being stout against the run and pressuring whoever SF props up at QB next week. The team needs to plan on sweeping this group starting next week.

Other #1s from last year: Nothing short of two wins against both Chicago and Philly are acceptable. Look at yesterday's game for evidence. And with a 0-4 start, we'll probably need both in order to move forward.

So to sum up:

Division: 4-2 (nothing else acceptable at this point)
AFCS: 1-3 (2-2 ideal)
NFCW: 4-0 (3-1 probably close to reality)
#1s: 2-0 (nothing else acceptable)

Total: 11-5 (anywhere from 10-6 to 8-8 probably closer to reality)

It may be enough.

Here's Hoping

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.
