New Orleans 31, Tampa Bay 14: The Saints are serious. Consider Marques Colston making 11 catches for 123 yards and a touchdown. Consider Reggie Bush having 11 rushes for minus-5 yards. Colston now has 700 yards receiving, fourth in the league. At midseason, who's the offensive rookie of the year? The seventh-round pick from Hofstra or the second overall pick from Southern Cal.

And Drew Brees, signed as a free agent, went 24-of-32 for 314 yards and three touchdowns. Who's second to Manning in the MVP race? Why not Brees?

other things of interest, but this is what was in about the saints.
granted it is from yahoo.

New commissioner Roger Goodell prefers the term "competitive balance" to parity. How about mediocrity?

This was the week for whatever term you prefer. For us, it's the latter.
In eight of the 13 games, underdogs won straight up, topped by Miami, 1-6 entering Sunday, handing Chicago its first loss. Two other lowly teams, Houston and Cleveland, beat the spread on the road. They certainly scared the highly rated Giants and Chargers even if they didn't beat them.
I can't stand these idiot sportswriters who hate on the concept of parity every chance they get. Yeah, let's watch Dallas or Frisco roll on to another Super Bowl win. THAT'S exciting. :angryrazz:

It sounds like this dope lost a lot of money and is hiding from his bookie.

Oh yeah, I like what he had to say about the Saints.
