6 games into the 2009 season we have scored 238 points.

In the entire ........ season we scored ..... points.

2005 - 235 points
1999 - 260 points
1997 - 237 points
1996 - 229 points
1990 - 274 points

and then you go back to the sixties where it gets really ugly.

Life is good.

Saints could shatter single-season scoring record

Two years ago, the Patriots established a new single-season high-water mark for points, with 589.


In 2009, the Saints are on pace to best that record by nearly 50.


With 238 points in six games, the Saints are averaging a hair under 40 for each 60 minutes of action. At that pace, the Saints will score more than 634 points over the full year.


A lot can happen over the final ten games, but given that the Saints have scored 48 against the Giants, 48 against the Eagles, and 46 against the Dolphins -- three playoff teams from 2008 -- how many will New Orleans put on the board when they play the Buccaneers, the Rams, and the Buccaneers?


Of course, the single-season scoring record is meaningless. And the teams that have put together the top three scoring seasons (2007 Pats, 1998 Vikings, and 1983 Redskins) failed in their quest for the most meaningful annual achievement.


Winning the Super Bowl.

Lets ride this all the way back to Miami.

I hope we don't let off the gas when we get up big on some teams this year. Since everyone seems to think it's OK for the Pats to run up the score, why not take away their record?

Not predicting either, but I'd even go 13-3 rather than 16-0 if given all power to set things and that sacrifice led to 60+ in both Monday night games. It'd be nice to run it up on the Patriots themselves, and well, Atlanta -- need I say more?

Hey if the saints go to the superbowl all bets are off and historic trends, stats and mystrious happenings mean nothing.

If we get to the promised land undefeated, most points, most TD's, Drew breaking any QB records, Sharper breaking any CB records are all consolation prizes and will do nothing to discourage this team from putting the final nail in the coffin that is our past as they launch us into the future!!!

I strongly second this.

Typically the points decrease throughout the season as scores become tougher to come by on account of cold and snow, but our schedule gets easier from here on out, and no real cold weather games to speak of. Could happen
