lets jsut be proud of our win.

Re: 8-0 for the first time!

I'm just happy we're winning and willing to accept what comes week to week. We haven't been making the playoffs often lately! I'll take the feeling of Euphoria, if even for a little while. I'm proud of our team, even when we're not so good.

I hear you on the Atlanta game. I live in Atlanta, and all I hear is wait till you come to our house. I hope we start getting on a solid roll here and punish them when I attend the game. Nothing would be sweeter for me than to sweep the 'Dirty Birds'.

First of all, "pride" is something you feel when you accomplish something.
I have not accomplished absolutely anything in the 8-0 start, and none of the players are my kids that I know of...

Second, the Titans really started 10-0 and did lose in the playoffs.
The Colts started 13-0 and lost in the playoffs as well.
Of the last 10 teams who started at least 8-0, they are the only 2 teams not make the SB.

And I don't know how long have you been a Saints fan, but remember all the lucky bounces and calls the Whiners got when they ruled the 1980's; remember all the calls/lucky bounces the Cowboys got during the 90's, or the Pats this decade. They won ugly along the way of their SB years.

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

Well said. I have been a Saints fan since day one. And I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly!! And I have seen every one of those calls/lucky bounces!! So I say, call it what you want. I'll take it every time. It's our turn man. So just enjoy the ride. We played a divisional foe that is a good football team, and won. Ugly? I'll take it.

Re: 8-0 for the first time!

An U-G-L-Y win is still a win, grant it. I am more concerned about hanging our hopes on UGLY. It CAN'T last...playoffs are one-and-done when you don't cross T's and dot I's - and that's definitely NOT how I want things to end. I can swallow bigger, stronger,faster; just can't stomach poor technigue, mental mistakes, and missed assignments: especially at this level. My concerns are the same as at the front of the season. Ladies and Gentlemen, even at an 8-0 mark...we are NOT there yet! I'm afraid to look at the 3rd down stops: 3rd-and-12, 3rd-and-7, 3rd-and-17...damn!

Re: 8-0 for the first time!

Love 8-0...BUT...we still need the games that we're supposed to win. That'll separate us from Saints teams of the past. With no major injuries, I think the team philosophy will carry us into the playoffs. Actually, our team is really deep throughout the lineup, and I think we can recover from injuries (they have already). Remember, though...we ain't in the playoffs yet. We have got to win those games ahead of us.

Nevertheless, I'm proud of our Saints.
