Do ya'll think that we are the best team in the NFC right now? What about the league? I mean, if you look back at the games so far and think about it:

NFC:
-Vikings @ Lions: Very close game. 10-0 at halftime. Vikes win, but barely.
-Eagles @ Carolina: Complete Destruction (then we turned the tables on Eagles and avenged our divison rivals)
-NYG @ Cowboys: This is possibly the worst game EVER!! haha

AFC:
-Pats @ Jets: Didn't watch the game, but it didn't seem close at all (and the pats damn near lost to the Bills)
-Steelers @ Bears: Bears beat the steelers, but not the Packers?
-Texans @ Titans: Once again, didn't see it but seemed to be NOOO defense.

Anyhow, looking at our first 2 games, do you guys think that we are one of the best teams in the NFL? Just asking your honest opinion, try to step out as a fan, and into the eyes of a(n) spectator..

Well during the preseason, our first stringers dominated Cincy, Houston, Oakland, and Miami, but those dominating performances were dismissed because those teams were supposed to be terrible, however they are playing better than expected so far. Each of those teams are 1-1, except for Miami that plays Monday night and are currently 0-1, but didn't look bad last week. Then we crushed the Lions, and they looked much better against Minnesota. Then we crushed the Eagles, who looked like world beaters last week. So the body of evidence indicates that this Saints team is very good. Some rankings had the Eagles as the best team in the NFC, so I think the Saints have played like the best team in the NFC, so now it's just a matter of keeping it up.

It's still early, but we look like the team to beat in the NFL right now.

It's still WAY to early rlto make that call. I would wait until after week 4 to start drawing conclusions.

with all due respect, um, you are wrong. I didn't say are we the best team in the NFC by week 4? I said are we the best team in the NFC? That means, right now, at 2-0 (not in week 4) are we the best?

Thanks for playing.. :jpshakehead:

Right now, this very week? Yes, it's pretty hard to argue otherwise. Getting a decisive win over the Lions (poor Lions!) was something that most pundits predicted, but going into Philly and putting up 48 points against a tough, talented defense was even sweeter. Our defense is shaping up better than I thought it would, sooner than I thought it would, too; they only need to be competent and yet they're looking downright sharp (or should I say Sharper?). And our offense...wow, they're terrifying, and I love it!

It's obviously far too soon to say we'll be the best team in late December (though we're certainly laying a firm foundation for a good post-season run), but right this moment...yeah, I'd have to say we are. Here's hoping we stay up top. :)
