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

I kinda see where everyone is coming from, with NE and Indy being crazy good right now, and how they are guna win the SB....so should every team in the NFC jus quit cuz they have no chance??? F That.....the superbowl is ONE game. Its not a series like NBA or MLB. Once playoffs start, regular season records mean nothing. Any team can beat any team any given day. Honestly, the Colts can be beat, but a handful of teams right now. Are we there yet? no, is it possible to improve enough this season, get to the superbowl and play them and win? yes it is. Until we are mathematically out of the playoffs, we can win the superbowl. Thats it. No one can say we have no chance of winning, becuz there is a chance we can. Dont crown Indy or NE just yet....theres still alot of season....

is this all really happening????

All this talk about the Colts or Pats winning the Superbowl already is a bunch of crap.
Both teams are great but every team is beatable on any given Sunday. If the Pats keep going all out on teams once the outcome has been decided like they are doing right now some defensive player will take a cheap shot on Brady and take him out for the rest of the year and then the Pats are in trouble. There once was a mighty Colt team way back when that thought they were unbeatable and a young cocky QB from Alabama named Joe took care of that thought. So the bottom line is if you play with the confidence of a winner anything is possible and any team is beatable.

All of the players in the NFL are the best players in the world. Any team IS beatable, but nonsense is nonsense. I must be the only crazy person here that thinks that the Saints GOING to the SB muchless WINNING the SB, is a 1-42 chance long shot. You guys are talking about playoffs and SuperBowl like we are 6-1 right now. I'm in no way dogging our team, I'm simply making the point that we are not ready to play teams on the same level as Indy or NE. If you think we can your blinding yourself as a Saint fan.

If we beat JAX like we did SF, I'll change my thought process. But don't sit there and pretty much call me stupid for pre-crowning NE. You can't compare Broadway Joe's victory over Baltimore to NE of 2007. Just because it happens in college football, how many times has it happen in the NFL in the past two decades?

Yeah the Colts can beat the Pats and the Pats can beat the Colts but as for as anyone esle you aren't living in reality if you think otherwise.

I have been on this band wagon from day one and NO RESPECT, I swear. We are a good team, not great, not close to winning a SB. We will need a lot of luck and no Faine just to get there. Sure YES we can get to the SB you I'll also use this disclaimer "because we are in the NFC".

We were a good 2-0 team, and they were a bad 2-0 team, and we proved that when the two went head-to-head.
2-0 bad team is called "surprise team".

I can agree with you that records aren't an indication how good your team is based on schedule of opponets and football gods have to be looking in on ya from time to time.

With this said you can see why we could say we over-achieved last year based on this arguement. We did look good against the 49ers but I'll agree lets keep this in perspective... its the 49ers, not the Pats. We might be the best 3-4 team out there but winning a SB is a bit of a reach.

However, luck will eventually run out, but good teams continue to win. Are you a closet Falcons fan?
LOL @ closet falcons fan.

You are basing your statement on what the Falcons later became. Even after the Saints game, the Falcons still ended up starting 5-2. Meaning that nearly halfway into the season, they were still a viable threat in the division. Just because they went on a 4-game losing streak and eventually folded into dogcrap doesn't mean that they weren't a "good" team at the time that the Saints played them in the Superdome.

The Saints started the 2002 season 6-1. During that season, they defeated Tampa Bay twice. Does that mean the Saints were never a good team during that season AT ANY POINT, since they "finished" by missing the playoffs?

For a person who predicted we go 0-5... damn I sense some optimism in there. He said we were a good team! Someone look outside and tell me if pigs are flying.

I hear what you are saying but you have to look at it as only a mere 'prediction' base on how they are playing. They are leaps and bounds over any NFC team. That is something we need to learn and strive towards. Are we in that league, honestly ask yourself that question. The answer, unless you living in World of Warcraft or some other realm un known to mankind is -NO-.
