Random thoughts caused from alcohol toxicity:

I don't think we'd be torched again by Brady and Bradford if we played them a second time. I think we had some significant coverage confusion in the early part of the season and Allen has cleaned it up rather nicely.

We shut out a pretty good Dolphins team who is looking like one of the better teams in the AFC right now.

One of the most impressive things about this team right now is that we are looking good on the road. Think this has a lot to do with the emergence of Kamara as a part of our great RB tandem, as well as a solid defense. Even in our best years we are usually much better at the dome than on the road. I'm not convinced that will be the case this season, as I think we have a team that is built to win anywhere.

The rest of the NFC south is looking quite vulnerable and I'm think we have a pretty decent shot at a first round bye. I think we've looked the best thus far out of all the NFC south teams. The falcons/patriots game tonight will really give us a good indication of what the division looks like.. must watch game imo.

Agreed with the above post.

Saints are playing just about as well as any team in the NFL right now. There isn't a team on the schedule that we wouldn't have a bona fide chance of winning.

Drew Brees turned the ball over twice.

If Aaron Rodgers had been on the field.....
They better get it together because the Bears running game is tough.

They have beaten up teams with bad offenses. Brees and company will give them fits. The Bears only win when they force turnovers (two today). If Kamara & Ingram protect the ball & the Saints defense continue to make plays, we're good.

Da Bears had 4 completions, 5 first downs and 153 yards of total offense. If their O plays like that against us their D is going to have to put up a lot more points.

I don't think we need to get ahead of ourselves, but we came back from a pretty awful first half by Drew, and are now first in the division in Week 8 - and that's something to celebrate today...
