It's A Win!

Hey, we're not winning the big game this year. I expect we will miss the playoffs. But we're young.

We just beat a game Dallas team hurting worse than even we are. We clawed our way to a win.

Now we need to beat a healthy team. Then we need to do it on the road.

We're building. And from that perspective I like what I'm seeing.

So many of us had high expectations. Rightfully or wrongfully. Either way, if you look at us from a building perspective we're cooking with fire. We have a long way to go. Last night was a big step.

Re: It's A Win!

With the rookies we have I think we could be very dangerous in the coming seasons if we draft and treat Free Agency correctly.

Re: It's A Win!

Does it feel good? Yes.

Does it cloud my judgement? No way.

We could have easily lost this game by two TDs

You're absolutely right. Easily.

But we didn't, which I guess is my point. Overly-optimistic as I may be sometimes, we have to win these first. I think Xan said '2 years' in chat last night. I'd buy that.

That doesn't make me feel better. Honestly, we have to wait that long?

We very well could win the big game this year. There aren't any real dynasty type teams anymore. Atlanta and Carolina will be exposed. Does anyone really think Atlanta and Carolina are unbeatable juggernauts?

As long as we keep improving each week we may sneak into the playoffs.

The playoffs are about who's the hot team going in. It absolutely 100% could be us.

My 11-5 prediction looks a little off now, but I think 10-6 is attainable.

Don't get me wrong. I'm optimistic as well. But I said in a post before the game that it was more about the way we win (or lose).

Last night I saw us shoot ourselves in the foot just as much as the previous games but one less time than Dallas did.

Happy for the win. Not thrilled with the overall product.

Health on defense is critical. O line still a work in progress...

Re: It's A Win!

Until we are mathematically eliminated, we have a chance at another Lombardi.

The ONLY team in the NFC that concerns me is Green Bay, (still not sure how we managed to dominate them last year!). The rest of that division is a dumpster fire.

The PEDhawks after tonight could have the same record as the Saints.

The Saints could very well start the failclowns on a downward spiral in a couple weeks; I don't see them losing to Washington.

The Yucs play the Jags so that one is a coin flip

The kittens will be scratching in the litterbox on a bye week.

No team in the NFC East scares me

As much as I want the Saints to win the division, I will be happy with a wildcard berth!
