No matter what happens next week

Itís been a great season.
We went from a 3 time 7-9 team to a team that beat a divisional rival to make it to round two.
We saw our defense make a huge rebound.
We saw a historic running game
We saw positive results from our draft IMMEDIATELY.
We have been in just about every game we have played
A good competitive team to the end.
I feel like we found our passing game at the right time.
Bring on Minnesota. Saints have a fighting chance.

Oh yea and Brees isnít done. A tight end or speed receiver and we are hanging 50.
Little more help on D and we will be a SB team.

Very pleased, appears or seems for the first in a long time, our guys, including reserves are just better, tackling, blocking and I think it’s in part to our position coaches, new and old.....

We have a punchers chance next week, but regardless it’s been a great season with a lot of fun moments.

Need to get faster on the front 7, must get a DT that can rush the passer. Offense needs a WR or TE that can be a threat for Brees.

Vikings Case Keenum. He's no world beater under center.

Of course we have a chance. I stopped doubting this Saints team after week 8. Saints are a legitimate team capable of beating anyone.

Any Given Sunday.

Agreed but if I didn't say I was as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs for next weeks game at Minny, I'd be lying.

Lutz from 44 yards out for the win. ITS GOOD!

Saints win 23-21 and will host the NFC Championship against their divisional rival Atlanta Falcons.

Their offense doesnít scare me. Their defense is tough but if we can get the run going itís on. Has upset written all over it.
