Our chances?
 
very few people outside of the Who Dat nation, if any, are giving us a chance this season. There is talk about Carolina and Atlanta, Green bay and The Giants and the teams of the NFC but we seem to have been written off. I say...GOOD! I am pleased that we have been given a very small chance of making an impact this season because then people will leave us alone until they wonder how the hell are the Saints playing for The Superbowl.

Everyone's so focused on the bounty BS and bashing us every chance they get they are completely missing whats been going on. They might lose some defensive players to suspension but so far Loomis has signed players to fill in (and in most cases) upgrade at that particular position (except for a DB or 2 which expect they will get in the draft). Brees will be signed before May 21st...trust me niether he nor the Saints really want to go the route of him sitting out OTAs & Training camp. The only real adjustment that they will have a challenge with is the state of flux the coaching situation is in this year which IMO isn't as big a deal as everyone makes it seem.

I don't get why people are counting us out. I think its more cuz they WANT to count us out rather than there being a legitimate reason why the talent we have can't win 10 or more games and make it to the playoffs. Like I was telling a coworker the other day that predicted we would go 6-10 on the year cuz we won't have a defense. We didn't have one last year either...and we still went 13-3. And the last time I check other defenses still had a hard time stopping us from droppin 40 a game.

What a stupid question. 100%!!! 17-0!!! It's the off season for god sake. Who Dat?

Vegas likes our chances. 10-1 to win championship. Atlanta 18-1, Carolina 50-1, Tampa 100-1. Oh, SF is 10-1, too.

If we can go 13-3 again without
a head coach, what does that say about how vital Paytons roll on the team is. Whats the point of even having a hc? We will see a drop off. Our schedule is brutal this year. How much of a drop off is yet to bee seen.

Same JackWagons that predicted the Eagles to be the team to beat last year.... Dallas the year before that....

I'm an OG Sunshiner but Goodell really put a beat-down on the New Orleans Saints. It's an uphill battle that few teams could face and overcome. The Saints are talented and the organization's leaders are smart (except when trying to cover up something they were told to discontinue:rolleyes:) so I'm not ready to sell the 2012 season.

Due to all this asinine over-reacting by the NFL, sanctimonious fans, and self righteous members of the media, winning the Superbowl in February might actually rival the feeling of winning the Superbowl two years ago.
In any case, it's a familiar "us against the world" feeling and I'm ready for the season to start. Right now.

It says Payton put together a heckuva coaching staff and taught them how to function without him? Army of One?

Well, I like the Saints' chances. :bng:

It will be hard to say until a major decision comes up, thats when Payton shined through like gold, except for those stupid end arounds, I could never see what he saw.
