I seasonally serve it to Saintfan with a hearty Itoldyouso stuffing and a whatwereyouthinking glaze on a bed of rice . He does bring his own wine though , a vintage year of ButBrooksstatsarenotthatbad.

There is room at the table for those who think the Saints will get past 9 wins with Hasbeen at the Helm and Brooks under center ......

I'm hoping that it all finally comes together this year.
I have yet to see a prediction (magazine or online) that has the Saints higher than 8-8. None of them are predicting a wild card either.

I think alot of people are going to be surprised this year. Maybe even 1999 St. Louis Rams surprised, if you get my drift.
Frankly, I think our playoofs start in week one. If we start off beating the Panthers in their house, we go 12 - 4. If we lose that first game, 6 - 10 sounds about right. It all depends on week one.

He says alot of stupid stuff though
Actually, I have heard MANY people say positive things about the Saints, but then they get to the inevitable "But even with all their talent on offense, with Aaron Brooks still under center..." and then they mark us down as 8-8 and move on to more interesting subjects. Cause lets face it, most sportswriters have just photocopied their analysis on the Saints for the last few years. "Talented, Inconsistent, Medicocre"

Welcome to New Orleans, the only point in the world where the Sum is LESS than it's parts.

The answer might be :

with Aaron Brooks still under center , "Talented, Inconsistent, Medicocre"

First of all

The Saints will always suck? Well, we haven't "sucked" for 5 years. We've been the most consistently average team in the league. Sure, that's not great, but .500 ball is not sucking. Underachieving? Absolutely.
That was really funny. Thanks for the laugh. Anyways, about this underdog business and being picked to finish 3rd or 4th in the South, I have a few things to say.

1. How can you blame these guys for picking us anywhere else than 3rd or 4th? I'm sure most of these people who make "predictions" are tired of picking the Saints as a team to watch for or a team who could surprise many people with their talent. I'm sure they have finally learned their lessons and will now just pick us to finish last or next to last until this team can prove them wrong. I know if I didn't hold a special place for the Saints in my heart, I would probably pick them to finish dead last in this division.

2. However, despite these embarrassing and maddening predictions, I don't think I would want the Saints to be anywhere else than under the radar and being picked by all these "experts" to finish 8-8 or worse. What I am hoping is that this disrespect that these players are receiving daily by columnists, opposing players, opposing coaches, and other various people associated with the NFL will piss them off and they will play with a HUGE chip on their shoulder and really feel like they have something to prove (like picking the Saints to finish last was dumb).

O well, I guess in a few weeks we will all see whether or not our beloved Saints can finally shed the label of mediocre laughing stock and transform into a legitimate title contender.
