How often do you see something like that? Indy, Philly, Cincy.....we have them all edged out. Can you just imagine what it is gonna look like next year with our O-line having the experience playing together, Brees, Colston, Henderson, Horn, Copper, MacAllister, Bush with another year under him, and a shored up Defense with the draft and F.A. It is a good time to be a Saints fan!!!

I hadn't realized that, thanks.
It's been quite a turn around this year.coach Payton could get coach of the year.

Can you imagine what this team would be like if the turnovers were just even?

Yep. We're actually middle of the pack giving it away but 2nd worst at taking it away. Our defense really needs a playmaker or two.

I woke up one day and we were the Rams. I don't wether to be happy or mortified.

just think if we had a relatively decent defense....

We really haven't had a good defensive unit in some time and just maybe this staff could pull something out of its hat for next season.

I agree lipstick. Made some comments in the other thread about it. I think Sunday was a good start. We mostly shut down the Falcons passing game and their running attack, and Vick compiled that 166 "getaway" yards in lieu of the other (mostly) shut-down facets of the game. I was encouraged that we only gave up 13 points to them.

Turnovers.... if we don't turn the ball over on offense... we don't lose another game this season.

Sure... I'd be nice to get some takeaways on defense... but it's not necessary with this offense... the defense can be middle of the road and give up 20 points a game... as long as the offense doesn't turn it over.

If the offense does not stop itself.... no one else will. We are averaging 400 yards and 25 points per game with a -9 turnover margin.....

If the that margin were at 0.... we'd likely be cose to undefeated.
