The real New Orleans Saints please stand up
Tonight's prime-time showdown against the 5-1 Pittsburgh Steelers should provide a much-needed litmus test for the New Orleans Saints.
Tonight we find out if they are playoff contenders or simply pretenders to last season's throne.
We find out if they are worthy of the dynasty discussion they boldly kicked around this offseason, or simply the latest one-Lombardi wonders who smelled greatness for a season but failed to retain it for posterity.
Seven games into their Super Bowl title defense, we still don't know quite what to make of these Saints.
Are they the gritty, find-a-way-to-win grinders who toughed out victories against the Vikings, 49ers and Panthers?
Or are they the take-no-prisoners banshees that battered the Bucs two weeks ago?
Or are they the lethargic mistake-prone misfits who muddled through ugly losses to the Cardinals and Browns?
Tonight the real Saints stand up. Or lay down.
i'll stand behind that thread. lets see who's in the house tonight.
