The energy the Saints are presenting...

A lot of times after a team wins a Superbowl, teams tend to become so displaced by their egos that they have a hard time getting the motivation to repeat again or have a winning season the following season(aka the Pittsburgh Steelers). I sort of like the energy that the Saints have, it is almost as if because of all the media projections on how it was a fluke that the Saints still have "something else to prove". I mean I'm not in the players heads or anything, but just hearing players talk and how they are approaching it, it feels like they still have a chip on their shoulder.

Re: The energy the Saints are presenting...

Things not in our favor:

1. Past history of super bowl winning teams' following season
How Super Bowl Winners Fared the Following Season - Super Bowl History
2. Complacency
3. Changes in personnel

Things in our favor:

1. Stable "system" and coaching staff
2. Returning starters
3. One formidable division rival

Payton is a genius. We win the Superbowl and he still has us flying below radar.
