I'll use the words "difficult" and "challenge" rather than something along the lines of "unfair"...

Facing the Superbowl champions on Sunday, then turning around in a short week to face the other Superbowl team on the road four days later.

I uh... Wow. Thanks NFL. :9:

Meh, that was last year. This year they are 3rd and 4th in their divisions, not worse than anything else the schedule makers could have cooked up.

To be fair, the schedule as a whole seems to be pretty favorable this year. I don't begrudge this

just another challenge for the Saints to overcome. I think the best game for both would to be to run the ball down their throats. That will help with the short week and keeps our defense fresh and ready to fly around.

We will win both. This team is coming together.

This ain't your typical 4-4 Saints.

I think the next 3 games are winnable, if they play the way they played these past 2 games. I think if the defense can keep the other team to around 24pts, they'll win

Saints have a history of playing up or down to their opponent. They should be up for these upcoming games.

I agree. They typically rise to a challenge like this. Will they go 2-0? Who knows. But they'll be ready. Then it's a long break and then too very important games at home (Rams and Lions).

I'm not sure if you were being facetious or not, but it's not the NFL's fault we have to play football games
