Why the Saints are still the team to beat....

BEST NEW YEARS WISHES FOR THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS!

#2 - NFL Passing Yards 4781 - Drew Brees
#4 - NFL Sack Leader 12.5 - Cameron Jordan

#4 - NFL Total Defense
#5 - NFL Total Offense

Sounds like we have more than a great chance against anyone.

If I was any team, I hate to have us on the schedule no matter what our record has been in the past 4 weeks. Sean Payton is a formidable foe and certainly learned a few things after a few losses. With our playoff experience, it could easily be argued that we are still the team to beat in the NFC.

I agree with you 99.9%, but that .01% team that shows up is the Saints uniform that I don't like seeing.

Re: Why the Saints are still the team to beat....

After a couple of days of being extremely pissed I'm optimistic again as well. Wouldn't surprise me to see us completely dismantle Tampa Bay while Atlanta upsets Cam Newton and the Panthers. Who might I add, have a stagnant offense.

If our offense ever shows up and plays the way they're supposed to, we're blowing out every team in the NFC.

From watching the teams play, Seattle's offense is mediocre, the 49ers offense is better, but still not what the Saints SHOULD be, and the Panthers can't really score on us either. This is our year. I think we'll heat up. Who's with me?

Re: Why the Saints are still the team to beat....

The stats are what frustrate me. They show the potential. But if take out the home games, we're probably in the bottom 5 or 6 in offensive stats. awesome at home, awful away. Sorry to poo poo on the thread, I know it's purpose is to be optimistic. Just don't feel like this team really wants it bad enough right now.

If I was another team and had to play us, I'd certainly be concerned. What I see in the numbers is a bright future. Gotta love the direction of the D.

40whiners are a team that scares me now. With a healthy Crabtree their offense is improved.
