Angry Have to get this off my chest....

My brother in law (a Broncos fan) is giving me grief cause I'm excited about the Saints being 8-0. He says, "Win a Superbowl and get back to me" Really?!!!!!! Then he says, "You Saints fans act like you've already won the Superbowl".....REALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!??????

I assure you, and I think I can at least speak for us long time Saints fans, we aren't counting chickens just yet. No, we are counting the wins that we have already accumulated.

Since when was it a rule that the only time you can talk trash and be excited is only if your team has won a Superbowl. It's a great accomplishment and warrants a bit of cockiness on their part, but really......LET US BE EXCITED AND KEEP YOUR PIE HOLE SHUT!!!! Should we just sit quietly on our hands and make the "keep my mouth zipped" sign just cause we don't have that trophy? No, we'll continue to be excited and scream at the top of our lungs that we are accomplishing something that no Saints team has ever done and most teams in the league would love to do. I'm just going to go ahead and not dwell on what we haven't done and be cautiously optimistic about what we can do.

These other fans are just making up rules as they go cause they are simply envious of our possibilities cause they are remembering their glory days of the past and we have them right here in front of us.

Yeah, it's amazing how some fans like to live in the past when their team is currently riding a 2-game losing streak.

Tell him to come back and talk to you when they win a SuperBowl this decade.

Heck, tell them to score more than 3 points against Pittsburgh's defense and you'll begin to talk to him.

This is all that needs to be said... Saints fans don't live in the past.

If we were living in the past paranoia would be running rampant across this board. I count our blessings every day for the board being so upbeat beacuse of what we have accomplished this season!

Re: Have to get this off my chest....

Yep, and remind your B-in L that nearly every Bronco's fan was screaming for Josh Mac Daniels head over this past off-season. The utter hatred for him for messing up the Jake Cuttler situation, at the ownership for firing Mike Shannihan, and for making their team into a doormat. As it turns out Josh knew wht he was doing after all and now all the fans are on his bandwagon. So they are off to a good start, but have lost 2 straight, gotta wonder if they are going on a losing streak like the Giants have.
And in the what have you done for me lately department, it ain't much. They haven't been to the playoffs in at least 3 years, and haven't been a contender for more than that. We'll see where they are in 3 or 4 weeks. It may not be 1st place. SD is beginning to come on strong.
