• Somehow, a 4-0 record didn't have people convinced the Saints were the class of the NFL, but beating the Giants should do that, right? Could there have been a more convincing display of that fact?
Offensively, Drew Brees is my MVP, but let's consider this, too: Darren Sharper for Defensive Player of the Year. First, let me point out to anyone who missed the game that Sharper returned another interception for a touchdown. It was negated by a silly roughing the passer call, but it still happened. If it had stayed on the books it would have been his third pick-six and sixth interception in five games.
Think about how well he fits in New Orleans. The Saints offense is scoring boatloads of points, and their opponents are constantly in a hole -- which means they're passing desperately. That gives Sharper more opportunities to make plays in coverage. And when he does, he puts that quick-strike Saints offense right back in field position to score again. And so it repeats. Sharper for Defensive MVP.

I've got a huge man crush on Sharper this season like I'm sure many of you do as well. At this point in the season I kinda like him more than Ed Reed... disregard - I do like him a lot more than Ed Reed (At least for this season and in GW's defense)
