I was watching the replay of the MNF Patroits game and they said that
the Saints were 32-0 in games where the led by 10 points or more.

After that game it was 33-0. Don't know if the streak is still alive.

Re: 25th ranked defense...So what!!!

yea I found it amusing during the build up to the SB when the hacks like Skip Bayless kept referring to this 25th ranked defense...of course they failed to mention that defense was ranked 15th or so when everyone was healthy... and showed it against the Annoited One Peyton Manning.. 17 points.... now we have added depth at Corner Back and DT in the draft... we have upgraded at Defensive End.... and today we have plugged the gap left when Fujita left.... not to mention we have a couple of draft choices from last year that didnt see the field... At worst we should again be mid level... 13-18th.... and with our offense that enough for another deep run.......

I think Tampa broke that streak. Weren't we up 14-3 at one point in that game?

Yea, but I don't think it should count. Most of our first string was on the sideline injured.

Exactly. All you heard that year was "The Greatest Show on Turf." When the shoe was on a Saints foot last season, all the talk was about how subpar the defense was. All that talk was cheap, worthless. I don't pay much attention to what media "experts" say. Eventually their feet wind up in their mouths.

Even worse; we were up by 17-0 but as the 19-0 record was gone we went for another one and got it. The first team to win the Superbowl after losing their last three regular season games. So we lost that on purpose...didn't we....?
