In the words of Marshall Faulk, I'm ready for another 40-burger from the Saints.

We've all heard that we're the first team since the 2001 Colts to score 40 points in the first two games. I don't have the energy or time to look it up, but has any team in history scored 40 or more in their first 3 games? Or 4 or 5?

Uhhhh.... no? :idunno: :shrug:

From all I've read, if we put up 40+ on Sunday vs. the Bills, it will be a new NFL record for starting the season with that many points for 1st 3 games. :cool:

:gosaints:

Rainy game so I'm not expecting it to be as high scoring. Never know though - maybe Shanle will take one to the house on D and Reggie will take one on ST.

It's not going to be rainy and they have artificial turf.

Drizzle at the most, but the wet field benefits the offense. I'd expect a 40-burger with a side of fries and a shake.

Rain forecasts must have changed eh? I haven't been keeping up.

Didn't know about the artificial turf either.

Hey - maybe we'll "hang half a hundred on em"

40 Burger = 400 more burgers

A 40 Burger on the scorebooard and maybe Greg Bensel will order the team 400 hundred burgers for the plane ride home just like when they came back from Oakland.

A few reminders for fans getting too lathered up or excessively despondent over how great or awful their teams are two games into the season:
  • <LI sizcache="0" sizset="119">The Buffalo Bills started out 5-1 last year and didn't make the playoffs. <LI sizcache="0" sizset="120">The Miami Dolphins opened last season 0-2 and won the AFC East.
  • The Sports Illustrated cover curse will claim a victim or two before it's all over.<LI sizcache="0" sizset="121">The New England Patriots lost their first two games in 2001, including a seven-point loss to the New York Jets in Week 2, but claimed their first Super Bowl title five months later. <LI sizcache="0" sizset="123">Like Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, Ryan Leaf also started his NFL career 2-0.
  • One significant injury can change the course of a season. There are players on each team a fan would dread losing to a torn ACL or a dislocated something-or-other.
  • The 1998 Bills started 0-3 but made the playoffs.<LI sizcache="0" sizset="125">Rex Ryan joined two other rookie head coaches who started their careers by not allowing an offensive touchdown in back-to-back games: Red Miller with the 1977 Denver Broncos (AFC champs) and Kay Stephenson for the 1983 Bills (didn't make the playoffs).
  • Four words: performance-enhancing substances policy.
  • Pete Carroll won his first two games as Jets coach. He finished 6-10 and didn't return.
  • Al Groh won his first four games as a Jets coach. He finished 9-7 and didn't return.
  • The Jets have opened 2-0 nine times in franchise history. They've gone on to make the playoffs twice: in 2004 and 1968, when they won the Super Bowl. They're combined record in seasons when they win their first two games is 63-56-2.<LI sizcache="0" sizset="126">Jerod Mayo will be coming back for the Patriots eventually. <LI sizcache="0" sizset="127">If Terrell Owens can heat up, the Bills' already-surprising offense can do some damage. <LI sizcache="0" sizset="128">The San Francisco 49ers are 2-0, just like they were two years ago. They finished 5-11.
  • The Bills shut out the Patriots 31-0 in the 2003 opener. SI put the Bills on the cover. They couldn't reach the playoffs, and the Patriots won the Super Bowl.<LI sizcache="0" sizset="129">The New Orleans Saints are the fifth team in NFL history to post 45 points in each of their first two games. Only two of the others reached the postseason.
  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees tied Charley Johnson's 44-year-old record with nine touchdowns through the first two games. Johnson's 1965 St. Louis Cardinals went 5-9.

Since the 12 team playoff system came in in 1990, only 5 teams who lost their first game have gone on to win the SB, the other 14 won their opener. Even at 3-0 our chance of winning the SB based only on the historical stats is barely over 10%, but had we blown the first two before winning tomorrow our chances would be less than 2%. Every week helps, but 1:10 is still a long shot (better than 1:30 but still long odds). Get to 6-1 and you get to a 30%+ shot. If you mess up and go 7-0 without going much further, thanks to the 1991 Saints, 2007 Patriots and the 2005 Colts, your chances of winning the SB drop back to 1:4.

There's nothing wrong with us scoring 40 points or more in this game or every other game......I just want the W!
