The Saints don't get any style points, or extra draft picks if they win road games by 20+ points.

I thought the object of the exercise was to get into the playoffs! Considering how the Saints finished last year AND that we are perfect in the division, and one game from being .500 on the road, I am happier than a dog with 2 tails.

I am not saying that there aren't issues, but there are a lot of teams that would swap places with the Saints in a New York second if they could.

Does a dog like having a second tail?

I can't fight this feeling anymore.
I won't say it out loud for the fear it maybe the truth.

When your diehards start to question and feel abandoned...where do you find the courage to start to believe again.

This weekend was a sucker punch in the gut.

I'll tell you where I get the courage, because I know that no matter what happens, this is my team, because New Orleans is the city I grew up in. All my family is from Louisiana for the last several hundred years. So, win or lose they are my team, and I will be rooting for them and no one else. So, in the big picture, it really doesn't matter to me if they win next Sunday, or even ever again.

That said, this team with Sean Payton, Drew and all the other play makers that have been around for awhile --this is the best team the Saints have ever fielded. So, there is hope and a sense of urgency, right now for these particular years. And, I hope this team fights hard and plays its guts out because we all know that if they do that, they are capable, THIS YEAR to go all the way. We can see it. And, then we see **** like the Rams -- and it's disappointing -- but we know they are better than that.

So, here comes the hope part...I will be hoping on Sunday, watching my team play a division game....and I will be sending all the crazy ass mental vibe **** out to my team in Charlotte hoping they win. And, if they fight hard and play as well as they can play ( like Dallas did against the Packers ) and still lose, then I will be sad, but I won't stop believing in them for one more reason: Any given Sunday, baby.

Shutdown defense in 2017 = Championship!

Re: We need to win on the road

I think the trick to "fan courage" on Sunday is going to be, to stay calm in the opening quarter. If the Saints can survive the first fifteen minutes without a total implosion, without completely tanking the whole game away in one half a quarter, THEN I think the cooler heads on this team will come to the fore, guys will get their game faces on, it will settle down, the veterans will inspire the new young guys, and Drew will roll up his sleeves and start dissecting and doing surgery. But if that first quarter is a bunch of Football Follies goofiness like bobbled squib kicks, Captain Munnerlin pick 6's from the 9 yard line, big blotches of grass ripping up from the field, mystery fumbles in the pile that nobody sees, delay of game penalties and stupid stuff like that, then it's gonna be rough. But if that first quarter is just a regular quarter of normal calm football, THEN I'd feel really confident -- the Saints should be in very good shape to pull it out. But surviving that first onslaught of craziness is gonna be key.
