NEW ORLEANS ó Saints offensive lineman Ben Grubbs once opined the only thing man is granted is hope.

Itís not far-fetched to say that before Sunday night, thatís about all the Saints had to show for itself after an 0-4 start to this anything-but-normal season.

There was no swagger.

There was no confidence.

There was no, well, no bravado.

Just hope.

Nearly three-and-a-half hours after Sunday night's game began, as Oct. 7 turned into Oct. 8, itís safe to say theyíve still got hope thanks to a 31-24 win over San Diego.

And now theyíve got the swagger and confidence and bravado they sorely lacked in the opening quarter of the season.

Thanks to a change in game plan and maybe even philosophy, the Saints were able to show us who we thought they were.

True, but the defense proved if they can play 1 complete quarter a game, that's all the team needs to win some games.

Also, the Chargers were not a cup-cake opponent - just sayin.

If it makes you feel any better, I can guarantee you we'll pitch a shutout next week.

with a possibly season changing victory last night where there was improvement in all phases except runninng the ball but i'll give it a passing grade because of the better playaction rythum causing eyeballs to bite and theres somebody that will never join the victory party. pat urself on the back soulman.

You watching NFL Classisc?

My mother in law was tricked that way once also... Thought Ron Guidry was back on the mound for the Yankees.

I just hope they can squeak out wins against tough opponents. We are in the position now to win close games.

I didn't think the defense was all that bad...
Back in weeks 1-3 when we were getting carved up Isaid to myself...
