Beating the Detroit Lions -- who didn't win a game last season -- by 18 points is one thing. To beat the Eagles -- who played in the NFC Championship Game last season -- by 26 points is something else. And that's why this convincing victory stamps the Saints as the top contender in the NFC.

Sure, it's early in the season, way too early to be crowning anybody. On the other hand, maybe the Saints will get even better as the season rolls along, although it's hard to believe they could be any better than they were against the Eagles, who manhandled Carolina 38-10 on opening day.

[FONT=Arial, Helvetica]They were in control almost the entire game and their offense seemed to be able to come up with a big play whenever they needed it. And their offense seemed to know that. You could practically see them yawn in the huddle. [/FONT]

[FONT=Arial, Helvetica]Of course, Saints coach Sean Payton found flaws in his team's masterpiece, because that's what coaches do. The Saints could have won 100-0 and Payton would have been unhappy with the way the lined up for the national anthem. [/FONT]

This is a fantastic quote.

This is the best quote I have ever read!

quote: But make no mistake, the Eagles didn't lose this showdown -- the Saints won it. And it wasn't what the Saints did that was so impressive as much as how they did it -- with apparent ease. They were in control almost the entire game and their offense seemed to be able to come up with a big play whenever they needed it. And their offense seemed to know that. You could practically see them yawn in the huddle.

If this doesn't get you fired up and almost weeping tears of joy, something is wrong with your ticker! lol
