The Panthers are for real and this division is theirs until we prove otherwise.

Falcons will crumble trying to find another identity.

Bucs will struggle with a rookie QB

We are insanely mediocre and in too much of a cap hell to do anything about it

Meanwhile this panthers team has won 2 out of 4 Division crowns since drafting Cam.

The scariest thought is we know Cam is playing nowhere near his peak. Like not even remotely close.

They play Seattle closer than anyone .. Don't say I didn't warn ya.

They went 7-8-1. That's not "for real". They won the same amount of games we did.

Agree!

Bucs will struggle with a rookie QB
Double agree!

Insanely mediocre with a really young team and a Hall-of-Fame quarterback is better than being like the Bears or Giants or something. At least we have a lot of good stuff to build on. And "cap hell" does not exist given the way these GM's can creatively work around contracts. Just ask the Cowboys, they were supposedly in cap hell this offseason but now they look like a threat to go all the way.

Meanwhile this panthers team has won 2 out of 4 Division crowns since drafting Cam.
Yeah, because they went 12-4 when we went 11-5, and then they went 7-8-1 when we went 7-9. Not like they're dominating anything. We're not at a significant competitive disadvantage with that team. In fact, in two of the last four games we've played against them we beat the dog crap out of them.

We aren't Seattle so I don't give a crap. No offense. Are we supposed to hang our heads in shame if they go win the Superbowl or something? I don't know about ya'll but to me the NFL becomes irrelevant unless the Saints are playing a game. I couldn't care less what any other team does.

Who cares, they can't beat either of the Packers or Seahawks in Green Bay/Seattle... I mean, let's get all excited they beat the Cardinals whose defense has struggled mightily the past few weeks and who was starting a QB who was on the Chargers practice squad for most of the year...

I call sham.

They beat a team on its 3rd or 4th string QB. This is a QB driven league. If not for the hot start and get Cards D they would not have made it to the playoffs with Palmer going down.

Seattle will mop the floor with them, or Green Bay will. Either way they are one and done and get a LATE pick for their 8-9-1 finish

Well they won the Division and still playing our lockers are empty.
However in my opinion this is the end of the road. If the Saints
won the Division we would be in the exact same situation. The only
good thing was that it wasn't the Atlanta Sewer Birds.

Re: Like it or not ...

Carolina has a good d
Cam is immature and does not have the drive to win
When do you see him on the sidelines studying the d positions on the last drive
He is an oversized Mike Vick

Their defence will be raided in free agency
Cam will get a huge contract

They are an 8-8 team at best

Re: Like it or not ...

I wish people would quit crying about our salary cap situation!!! The Saints were in salary-cap hell last year and we signed Jarius Byrd AND Jimmy Graham.

Loomis will work his magic and massage the contracts of Brees and some of the other high dollar vets will either re-negotiate their contracts if they want to stay with the Saints or they will be let go.

The Saints are still the team to beat in the NFC South and to some degree in the NFC.

Carolina is a team that plays good against weaker teams or teams that aren't playing their best. They are one and done in the playoffs.

The failclowns are like the cooter on a 90-year old woman; everyone knows its down there but no one gives a damn!

The Bucs are years away from being more than a spoiler!

Re: Like it or not ...

I give credit where credit is due. Carolina was the better team this year. But, as long as they have Cam at QB they will only go so far. Their D is the only thing keeping them competitive. His passing game is too inconsistant. If it weren't for his legs he would already be someone else's backup. They got healthy and hot at the right time. But consider who their four game winning streak came against to close out the season. They beat us and Atlanta, the 31st and 32nd ranked D's in the NFL. The other two wins came against Cleveland and Tampa by a combined 6 points. Now they beat a team in the playoffs with a 3rd string practice squad QB and a D that peaked weeks ago, has been on the decline and couldn't tackle anyone in a phone booth. They're going to get destroyed next week.
