OK, Polly Positive. I got sucked in by this team in 2013, 2014 and 2015. We'll see.

I do like our chances in the division, right now, for sure. Especially while watching the Failclowns get shut out in Foxboro.

0-2 in the first two games ... against other teams who are good .... does not exactly instill confidence. I think it's a little early for talk of the post-season.
But, trust me -- NOTHING would make me happier.

Re: What we learned from Saints' 26-17 win at Green Bay

I understand being cautious with the optimism. God knows I've been convinced every year that we had corrected the mistakes of the previous year and we'd be good again. This team looks a lot different though. This team has shown that it can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. That mentality was totally absent the last few years and it's hard to shake the PTSD that causes. I felt that old familiar sinking feeling after Hundley ran for that TD, but instead of going limp in the face of adversity they dug in and came back swinging. There is fight in this team again. There is talent on defense that hasn't been there in over a decade and they're playing better together all the time. The offense seems to be finding it's stride and we have a running game again. They've officially made a believer out of me and I will go ahead and put it out for all to see, for better or worse.. This team is for real, the defense is for real and we're gonna make the playoffs.

Been here for awhile. I like my seating. I don't need to do this to actually be this:

Actually, I had an account here in 2008. Lost the password, dammit. So, re-upped in 2013.

Re: What we learned from Saints' 26-17 win at Green Bay

Today a game was played. A game filled with good moments and bad moments, but ultimately overcoming the bad to come out with a W IN LAMBEAU w/ inadequate weather. Cool, regardless that doesn't ERASE the potentially costly mistakes that were made. If a poster wants to talk about bad moments that WERE apart of THE GAME then so be it because at the end of the day those mistakes HAVE to be fixed in order for the Saints to play good football and make a Real run in the playoffs IF they get there. Good comeback win on the road, but the Saints still have work that needs to be done before I personally take them as a serious playoff contender. The potential is there, but its just that right now...potential. It does matter how you win and how you lose. Take the good w/ the bad because they go hand & hand.

And they gave up 60-70 plus rushing yards in the second half maybe even more honestly and 150 plus total rushing w/ over 7 yards a carry....that was the most disheartening thing because the Packers didn't seem very interested in throwing the ball too much...their O seemed very limited.

Yea, somehow if you acknowledge the saints miscues after a W your a "Bandwagon Fan"....I thought bandwagon fans were only around for the W's , but ok.

Re: What we learned from Saints' 26-17 win at Green Bay

I am not convinced. What if the opposing team scores more points than we do, huh? It's too early to start dancing. I will wait until we win the Superbowl before getting ahead of myself, thank you. I will just sit here in Hundred Acre Wood with my tail nailed to my ass! 😁
