New Orleans Saints enter playoffs as NFL's hottest team
 
1 Attachment(s)
So far, 2012 has been a very good year for the New Orleans Saints. Twelve hours after New Orleans celebrated the New Year, the city's beloved football team celebrated the culmination of one of the best seasons in club history with a 45-17 rout of the Carolina Panthers.

The fireworks show at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday rivaled anything that took place over the Mississippi River the previous night. The "oohs" and "ahs" reverberated through the French Quarter as the Saints rang up their third consecutive double-digit blowout in stunning fashion.
Points erupted.

Records exploded.

Milestones detonated.

Thankfully, there were no reports of falling bullets around town Saturday night but records rained out of the sky after the Saints kicked off Sunday.

The Saints set so many league and team marks the official stats crew couldn't calculate them all. Some officials joked the club set a record for setting records. The working number of league and club marks tied or broken was 15, but it's believed to be higher.

The Saints shattered so many marks they almost ran out of game balls to give to the record-setters afterward. Darren Sproles received a game ball for setting the NFL record for most all-purpose yards in a season. Roman Harper got one for setting a club record for sacks by a defensive back. The team received one for eclipsing the 2000 St. Louis Rams' NFL record for total yards in a season. And Jimmy Graham received one for setting the NFL mark for receiving yards by a tight end, even though it was subsequently broken by New England tight end Rob Gronkowski.

"It was crazy," guard Carl Nicks said. "It was a great year. We made history."

We aren't going to get complacent though, we have to play with a chip on our shoulder like we have for the past 8 weeks, stay aggressive, stay balanced and force opponents to play catch up, that's when we are at our best

At least one sportswriter for the Times-Picayune should make it a point to bring up the Rams game everytime they interview the Saints.

Maybe it will help keep them focused on how much looking past a team can cost them.

I'm with you. I don't think there's any way we look past the Lions, but I damn sure can't get it out of my mind.

Its the ONLY way the Lions can win.
