Once again - opportunity is knocking...

Despite an aggravating 0-2 start where we saw a great offensive performance botched by horrid defense, only to be followed the next week by a stellar defensive performance being wasted by poor offensive and special teams, the Saints are actually still right in the thick of things.

The Panthers are losing now and could drop to 1-2. Tampa plays a tough Rams team and could do the same. And we have the 1-1 Falcons at our place in prime time tv where we normally roll.

That's right - when week 3 concludes, you could say the Saints could be in a 4-way tie for 1st place. Or you could say it's a reboot of 2016 and that the NFC south race is a 13 game affair.


I think since I've been on this board I've posted something similar a dozen times.

Opportunity to turn this season around is knocking. It's right here for the taking come MNF. Will the Saints open the door this time unlike many times in the past?

Let's hope so...

We need the Vikings defense and we'd never lose the division

So 8-8 may win the division? I'll take it.

8-8? We have only lost two. Until I see anything different the Saints are going 14-2.

And the candy-assed offensive line that has made Scam Newton look like a god is not what it has been.
