The next 5 games are absolutely brutal.
We'll find out soon enough if we're contenders or pretenders.
3-2 over the next 5 would be great.

Re: Saints sprinting along rare path toward Super Bowl contention

The defense has really gotten me into believing this is real. Though our offense isn't as dominant as it's been in the past, a real defense is what makes you into a championship contender.

I'm still hesitant to go into sunshine pumper mode given the past few years of mediocrity, but pendulum is moving in the right direction.

Our D is getting nasty. I friggen love it, and the way they played yesterday against a bunch of classless idiots...that could bring them even closer as a unit.

I still think we are a couple of players away from out D really being something special. Its good to see they have good locker room... for the test that is about to come.

I think Rankins could use a little more help inside; need a big nasty type [Suh, without the dirty play]

And possibly a Okafor upgrade, but he's decent in his own right...

I would think the Saints FO would keep Alex next off season. He's been good/above average since day 1 of camp. You can never have enough pass rushers.

According to PFF ratings from last week, Okafor is #28 ... Cam J was ranked #1.

Great to see DEFENSE!!! Different to see passes not caught because they're off. I know Drew's numbers look good but there are a ton of short screens etc. Downfield he's missing as much as hitting. Elbow compress suggests a problem?

Tendonitis or a little soreness; not that big of a deal...
