      The only way that they will or can be "for real" is if some of the players that they have who are considered to be mediocre or even just plain bad emerge into quality players in a way that no one has or will foresee.

      The truth is, they just don't have that good of players on their team. They are currently starting a corps of LBs that were all backups for NFC East teams last year. That's how bad they are at LB. They are also employing no names and young guys at the DT positions. McKenzie is a good player in the secondary, but outside of him they have young unproven players and mediocre vets. Hell, they are starting Roman Harper, who, though he ended up being a second round pick, was projected as no more than a 4th rounder by every draft service I ever saw.

      The rest of your post seems to indicate that you have a hard time realizing that this might in fact be true.

      Your comment about NFC East back-up linebackers also makes me think you have trouble realizing that the NFC East might not be all it's hyped up to be, which again is a hard time realizing that what is thought to be true is false.

        So if the Saints go 9-7 they aren't "for real"? What does for real mean? Hell if the Saints go 8-8 that would be an amazing season for them. Anyone expecting them to go 12-4 is an idiot. But they could finish the season 6-7 and sneak into the playoffs. I don't see why not.


        Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

            The Saints are playing pretty good, but making the playoffs? Which 6 of these games are the Saints going to win (assuming 9-7 gets them in)? I don't see more than 4 or 5 wins here.

                Reggie Bush was the offensive MVP last night. I don't care what the stats showed. When Reggie was on the field, all eyes were on him. It seemed to me that the Falcon's biggest priority was to stop him. I felt like a big reason why the Saints won was because they gave too much respect to Bush, and not enough to Brees.

                  I'll be suprised if you beat the Panthers once, let alone twice.

                  You will beat the Bucs twice-You will probably lose to 3 of the 4 NFC East teams-And you will probably upset one of the AFC North teams-leaving you with 4 more, maybe 5 more wins.

                    They'll win:

                    1 - one of the Carolina games
                    2 & 3 - both Tampa Bay games
                    4 - either Philadelphia or Baltimore @ home
                    5 - San Francisco
                    6 - Washington

                    9-7

                      Just like all the experts had Atlanta blowing us out last night. *yawns* I prefer it when people sleep on us. Keep it up.
                      The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                          Well, you have every right to be confident right now. I would be too if I were a fan of the 3-0 Saints, so more power to you. But the Panthers started to click this week and I have to think that with every game Steve Smith plays, that team will take their game to the next level. I think the Panthers will win by 10+ this week, but by no means do I look down upon anyone for thinking the Saints will be 4-0 one week from today.

                              And, they still just barely beat a pretty 'eh' Tampa Bay team.

                                Someone brought that to my attention, that ATL was throwing that game....and honestly you never know, they beat that team up like the Saints outmatched them at every position, and the Falcons started off so horrible it was too hard to come back from....


                                but that game being thrown was brought to me by another person and its not totally out of the question


                                but looking at the remaining schedule, they could easily come out with 7 wins this year, so that means they would only need 2 upsets to make 9 wins...why are you guys acting like in the NFL the only team that wins is the favorite, have you never seen an underdog win before?

                                Why do you think its so hard for teams to not go 0-16, because one of those powerhouses you see on the Saints schedule will look over them to the next weeks opponent and end up losing because of it, so please lets not look and say oh they will lose all these games, when you have no idea how that will play out, we know how tom coughlin prepares for games, injuries could happen in that timeframe, and teams just flat out dont play well some sundays, if 7 wins is almost a lock for them, they could sneak out another 3...
