Re: Saints exciting but they won't last...

why is it no one ever remembers the teams records at the time we play? I think the only teams that had losing records at the time we played was Bills, Rams, panthers, Bucs, and Redskins(off the top of my head). Someone else can look it up but I don't even think any of the other teams we beat had more than three losses at the time we played them. NFL is a copycat league and the Saints have beaten most opponents by double digits. If you were a head coach and had to play a team that the Saints beat wouldn't you be watching that film? Wouldn't you do what worked for them? Wouldn't that give you a better chance at winning? Would that make the Saints less of a team if you did win?

12-0

All that matters.

He brings up points that worry me a bit. Hopefully we will get everybody back for the playoffs and this won't be an issue. All of these other teams have weaknesses that can be exploited too.

This article was clearly written before Minnesota got owned by the Cards. Too late to revise now!

Don't let other peoples stupidity get the better of you. When the Patriots won their 1st SB many opposing fans and bloggers said the same thing, that the Patriots were not as mighty as they 'pretend' to be. Every year since, the comments abounded that the Patriots would not be able to go better than 8-8. Although this season they just might , it's been 10 long, successful seasons. When someone makes statements like this one, ignore them. Getting yourself upset does nothing positive. Let the team speak for itself. I guess I'm saying that, when your team is on the top of the pile, expect the opposing fan bases, and most of those media 'experts' to do nothing but attempt to find all the negatives, truthful or not, and it's only because they are jealous of your team's success. The hardest time you will have will be to hold back on your responses to them. If you don't respond, they will eventually go away.

I also remember that there were too many victories in all those successful seasons that wore PatriotsNation down. Whether you win by 20 in an easy game or squeak out a win at the last minute by one, it's still a win, and that's all that counts.

Good luck. Continue on.

That is so true. We Saints fans have not experienced this type of success ever, so we are much more used to people/the media laughing at us rather than trying to find the proverbial chink in the armor.

It almost reminds me of the NFL draft: the media spends the last weeks of the college season hyping up their darlings, then the spend February to mid-April destroying them.

We played with the starting corners out and two "new" corners and a rookie. Fuji was out and it was a muddy field. That is the ONLY game like that we have to play this year. He seemed to miss that point. Most injured team in the NFL is 12-0..stick that one in your cap Bub.

Hartley is an animal!

.. I would tell him to stick it some place other than his cap, but that's just me.
