Nice article and good perspective.

The fun part about the Saints’ offensive show is no one is really noticing.

What with Brett Favre doing commercials, Mark Sanchez cementing his place in Canton, Ohio, and Jerry Jones comparing the opening of a stadium to winning a Super Bowl, the Saints have barely been noticed.

I’ve never quite understood fans getting upset when the national media ignores their favorite team.

As I said on Friday, I fully expect the Saints to be basically ignored until at least the Jets game.

Sorry dude, but your team is getting notice. You're already starting to become the darlings of the NFL. Now that Brady looks like crap, it's going to happen even sooner. Brees is the new Brady

If the Patriots had dropped 93 points after two games, ESPN would be sending sick children to Boston so Tom Brady could cure them and broadcasting it live all week long.
hahaha, has a humorous ring of truth...

Rex Ryan knows how to bring the heat, it will be fun to see how Drew Brees can kill you with quick passes.

The Giants have a monster pass rush, and I expect our Offense to struggle against that front 7. The Giants what it takes to beat an Offense like this, they harrassed Tom Brady all day long in the Super Bowl.

Both those teams are going to be TOUGH

Didn't the Saints just play one of the best Defenses in Philly? And how many points did we put up??
The Philly Fans will be quick to point out that they didn't have Stewart Bradly (starting MLB) and Jim Johnson (DC, R.I.P.).

So by all means, no the Philly Defense SUCKS and we still have yet to play a good Defense, you know, minus that whole 5 turnovers vs. the Panthers thing.

At least we have the benefit of playing both in the Dome

I think it will take a great defense and a great balanced offense as well.
A great defense will not be able to stop us for a whole game. It will need some help from their offense ala keeping the ball out of Drew's hands.

I think everyone's looking right past the Bills. They're perfectly capable of ruining our fun.

But Ryan is still running a version of the 46. A quick thinking QB with shorter routes by the WRs can kill a 46. It will be a tough game yes, but if they leave that same hole in the middle of the field they were leaving with the Pats, Colston and Shockey will kill them.

I definitely think we have a chance to beat you guys. But I don't necessarily think that it will be because we 'stopped' you offense, or at least the yards will be there. Maybe we get lucky in the red zone a couple times though. Mostly though, don't sleep on our offense. And don't expect Edwards to turn the ball over 3 times like Stafford and Kolb did.

And with the way the Jets have been playing, I got to go with them as the answer to this question. That should be a fun game.

Fans might be, but do you honestly think the players are? The Bills game isn't a trap game. They will not be over looked for the Jets (lol). The Bills could easily be 2-0, so trust me, the players only see the Bills.

Buffalo would come to mind......I can't believe you put that much faith in their record after two pathetic offenses led by QBs playing their first game ever in the NFL.
