So, Saints, you've just beaten the three worst teams in the NFL....

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The Jags just barely beat the Bucs, and the Saints are clearly playing better than Tampa Bay, right now. And the Jags have a good defense but not a good offense....

The Saints are definitely playing better. No one can deny that. Also, I'll be the first to admit that im about as happy as I can be right now about the win today. However, if the Saints are going to want to keep this up there is one thing that needs to change. So far this season in almost EVERY game the saints do decent in the first half (if not blow the other team away e.g. today) but when they come back from halftime it's almost as if they don't try. They were destroying the 49ers today in the first half. When they came back onto the field they should've been playing alot better than they did. San Francisco shouldn't have gotten any goals :P. Now I'm not complaining and I'm going to say right now again that I'm about as happy as I can be and will be wearing my Saints jersey proudly tomorrow. But if we keep playing like we do in the second half it's going to be a sad season for Saints fans everywhere.

A win is win thats all that matters in the standing. Maybe these loses were a good thing. They wont take winning for granted and maybe they learned that every game is a trap game in the NFL. Who really thought after the way Washington played against the Packers they would look like an 0-7 team against the Pats. Did I think they could win? No. Getting B slapped like that? No.
So welcome back boys the true tests are coming up.

As for the title of this thread......

1. Seattle has a better record than we do.
2. The three worst teams are Rams, Dolphins, and Jets.
3. The Cowboys and Patriots have beaten up on crappy teams this year. (See AFC East.)

We are gonna be fine folks.. Go Saints!!!

I can remember before the Seattle game how many people on this very forum didn't give the Saints a snowball chance in hell to beat the Seahawks, but they did, and now that wasn't even good enough. Seems to me that the Saints can't please some people regardless of what they do, well when you're 0 - 4, a victory in the NFL is a victory, it don't really matter who it is that you beat as long as you beat them. Quick question? Are the Bucs(4-4) and the Panthers(4-3) that much better than us? The Bucs beat the Saints, Rams, Panthers, and Titans. While the Panthers beat up on the Rams, Falcons, Saints, and Cardinals. Yo, I know we haven't beaten the Colts or the Patriots, but who has, but like I said, credit is definitely due because they could have gave up on the season just like the Falcons, or the wheels could have came completely off like the Jets(1-7). Remember boys and girls, there was a lot of people talking about Mangenious giving Coach Payton a run for the 2006 COY, of course that didn't happen, and Payton got his boys playing better ball right now. Hey, you could be a Bears fan after getting swept by the Lions for Christ sake. Just be happy that there's some type of light at the end of the tunnel. GO SAINTS!!!!!!
Well said blacksaint... well said.

We got on a roll last year starting the season off by beating up on 3 "bad" teams in a row (Browns, Packers, & Atlanta), and that was enough to build confidence, gain momentum, and carry us to the NFC Championship. Don't under estimate the importance of confidence and momentum in the NFL.

Atlanta was 2-0 when we played them in that game.

All you can do is play the schedule that is dealt to you. Should we try to swap with another team so we can have better competition. And as far as playing Jax when they are a little banged up I'm all for it. We will play all the rest of our games without our best player "deuce".
