it definitely has that feeling, but i'm confident that not so much. people are still sleeping on carr.So I don't listen to a ton of sport media but I do enjoy Extra Point Taken over at the Ringer's NFL podcast. I like Sheil and Ben, just find them fun to listen to, but I also enjoy football from a more nerd/statistical/analytical point of view.
Today on there Friday show Sheil was predicting the Saints to beat Green Bay. They both like are defense but are little sheepish on the offense. During the segment he said the Saint's will be like the '22 Viking. Beat bad teams, on an easy schedule, but no one will really take us serious. Basically we could end the season with 12+ wins, but no one will put us in the same league as Dallas, 49'ers, Philly.
The more I though about the more I though it might be a fair assessment. It's early and things can change but I can't see us beating Dallas or the 49'ers. While Philly would be closer I still think we're the underdogs.
So what say you Saint's Report, is this teams ceiling a decent record and Division win, only to be one and done in the playoffs? Do you really believe that we can beat the elite teams? I am not there yet but I am starting to feel like this has the potential to be a special season, when you hear these players talk you can tell that they believe they can beat anyone. I really excited about this Sunday's game. If we can get this offense to be just a tad more efficient we might be able shock some people.
