Under the radar is far from what we have been since 2009.
We earned that during the season though. Reggie gave us a little more national press that we have had in the past but I have never heard so many people admit we have a scary team nationally.

Anyhow I didn't mean under the radar so much as everyone seems to be expecting us to win and there is a lot of hype. I'll believe it when I see it.

Last year, the media was all over the Seahawks & Broncos' jocks. They were right. Whether the media loves us or not can be a maddening topic, but totally irrelevant. Barring major injury, we are who they think we are. So, go ahead and crown us lol.

Re: Im optomistic about this years team but...

It's the media hype not the other teams

I about stopped my car today when I heard some announcer on MAD DOG SPORTS comment that the Jets probably have the best pass rush in football right up there with the Saints and Seahawks

why are the Panthers known so well for their front seven
yes they are good but it's because they don't have a complimentary offense

the media respect Drew and company and Payton and Ryan's genius
but they are hesitant to embellish us
they practically bend over backwards for anything Brady
take away his o-line and see how successful he is

Re: Im optomistic about this years team but...

We get national hype because we beat the media's beloved, over-hyped, and over-publicized NFC East and their division champs Eagles in their house...in January...and outside in the cold where we are supposed to be an average-to-below average soft & finesse team.

We have a good running attack and a near elite defense; "they" always say that a good running game and a good defense travels well. My major concern is our kicking situation and the lack of discipline we've seen on both sides of the ball so far.

Re: Im optomistic about this years team but...

Without a doubt this is the best Saints roster on paper in history.With Atlanta and Carolina both appearing weak. This could play out as a very favorable schedule for us. Yes Tampa looks better but I say Brees beats Josh McCown every time. We could go undefeated in the division. Meanwhile, Seattle's division includes the 49ers, the Cardinals and the improving Rams. Plus Richard Sherman graced one of the new Madden covers, so they're done. If we can get the 1 seed, I love our chances of playing in the SB.

If we get #1 seed we will effing wreck shop all the way to the SB.

Saw some magic tonight, that's for sure.

Re: Im optomistic about this years team but...

I just finished a fresh pitcher of black and gold KoolAid. Barring injuries, NFC Championship game is where we land with a 12+ win regular season.

If the NFCCG in NOLA, place your bets, we're on to the Superbowl.

If it's not in NOLA and NOT in Seattle or San Fran or Green Bay - still think we are on to the Superbowl.

Otherwise it will take our A+ game and the ball to bounce our way several times (+1 or more in TO ratio or sack differential).
