So Dallas is better because they beat Indy at home on an emotional night at home much like we did against Atlanta. Or maybe because they lost to Wash and we lost to Pitt at home and Cincywho is hot or the Ravens who are 9-2. We are that good when we play our football on any given Sunday we can beat anyone and thats what the NFL is all about

As the season progresses, many things become clear. The Saints are a decent team (and great in terms of progress), but NFC isn't so hot. Once you accept that, their record isn't that mysterious. Their "losing streak" involved losses to 3 out of 4 teams with winning records, AFC teams generally, and last years Superbowl winner who is better than record. Given the state of the NFC, it isn't completely ridiculous for the Saints to have a chance at making the Superbowl this year. I think the team that scares me the most is Seattle, who suffered a bunch of injuries and could be closer to last year's form at end of year. (They always beat us too) After that, you really don't see anybody the Saints couldn't possibly beat in the NFC. I'm not that sold on Dallas or Chicago from what I have seen. Dallas sometimes has problems focusing and neither QB scares me that much. When the Saints offense is on track, good defenses won't completley shut them down. The best defense we played all year was Baltimore but we still got 22 points. So, I could see us beating a Chicago or a Dallas if we didn't make mistakes or they were a bit off that day. It's not like some years where there were always a few teams in NFC that seemed clearly out of our league that we would never, ever beat.

Relax. People here are just excited about their team. Yes, some of the talk borders on ridiculous but hey it's good to see people excited. You have to remember this team was written off and left for dead just a week ago. We all got hear the smug gloating from the "talking heads" over their predictions of a collapse for the Saints. So of course everyone's here excited about a 18 point victory over our bitter rivals.......
