    I think the Saints are for real and why I'm saying that is coaching. After watching the game last night, and then the previous two, Sean Payton is excellent at play calling, scheming, and finding how to attack the opposing offenses with his defensive personnel.

    What Payton has done is taken out the "I' in "Team" and made this a cohesive unit on both sides of the ball. Brees is improving with each game he's played, Colston is turning into a stud and could possibly be in contention for OROY, and Bush leaves opposing defenses guessing.

    Our questionable offensive line hasn't allowed that much pressure to get to Brees, our WR's are really stepping up, Deuce is showing that he still has what it takes and that all he needed was someone to spell him from time to time, Reggie Bush adds that other dimension to the offense and is as explosive as they come.

    I know their schedule is tough but I see some upsets in the future.

    I think we beat Carolina at least once. (1)
    I think we beat TB both times. We play them hard and their offense is struggling (2,3)
    I think we beat SF (4)
    I think we beat Washington (5)
    I think we beat NY Giants. I'm only saying this because Coughlin is losing it as a coach and his teams confidence in him is fading. (6)

    That would put us at 9-7 and I think it would also put us in the playoffs.

    Our far as the conspiracy theory. That's been eating away at the back of my mind. I hate to think that ATL just threw the game but they didn't look like a team that has knocked around TB and CAR. New Orleans looked really good and ATL looked really bad which makes me wonder.

      Atlanta threw the game. :roll: Yeah, it's that hard to believe the Saints are a good team, people are saying the Falcons threw the game. :roll:

      Some say the Saints don't have the talent, how did they win, blah, blah... Well, the Saints DO have talent, they were just missing the Coaching Staff, which they now have. Sure, we could use some more players, but most of the talent is already there. Just because you don't hear the players name on ESPN all the time, doesn't mean he isn't a good football player.

          its not as far fetched as you think...personally i think NO outplayed the falcons and the atmosphere was more of a difference then u knew unless u were there....but it could happen and probably has happened before...


          thats the govtmnts way of saying im sorry, im sure if they wanted it to happen they could of, if you doubt that then you have no idea what the government can pull off...

          I dont believe it, but all im saying is i dont doubt it either...nothing against the Saints, because Payton is an offensive genious and he has been my favorite coach a long time, i liked him here in dallas and hated to see him go, but im glad he ended up in a good situation instead of somewhere like oakland

              Just like all the experts had Atlanta blowing us out last night. *yawns* I prefer it when people sleep on us. Keep it up.
              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, they still just barely beat a pretty 'eh' Tampa Bay team.

                  could end up 9-7 but i think the two wild cards will come from the nfc east.

                    I don't think the Saints will have to worry about a wild card spot, I believe they'll win the NFC South.

                      U will know if they beat an actual NFL team on the road and if they can continue to play that well at home.

                        If you consider "for real" to be a team that competes for a playoff spot in the NFC, then yes, the Saints will be "for real".


                        The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                        If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

                            In that stadium, on that slow surface concealing their defense's lack of speed*, I have no doubt they will win most if not all their home games. That means they will go 9-7 - 10-6, and that's assuming they do not win any road games which is unlikely.

                            * Re-watching the game, I saw Mike McKenzie, a corner who has looked like he was past his prime in past seasons run step for step with the Falcons fast receivers, when they weren't falling down on the turf. I also saw the Linebackers (Fujita, Simoneau, Shanle) contain Vick and Dunn on the edges, something Carolina and Tampa didn't have enough speed to do. Although one negative of that turf is Reggie Bush wasn't very explosive for the same reasons. The turf played a large factor in that game, and will continue to be a huge advantage for them the rest of the season.

                              OMG! Look I can use the " :roll: " too. Does that make me special? It must make me special because this thread is obviously a contest to see how many " :roll: " one can use.

                                Have you not been a big proponent of Dwight Freeney, in that you think the negative vibe about him is false? Because using this argument, then Dwight Freeney is indeed a product of the turf in the RCA dome. I could be wrong, but if I'm right, than what you said could be seriously contradictory.
