Week 5 playoff forecast: Saints a virtual lock

...The Saints keep rolling thanks to a great running game and defense. Their playoff chances are now close to 95 percent. They are especially strong because what was supposed to be a three-team race in the division is now just a two-team race between the Saints and Falcons. Tampa Bay is also worst than expected. In preseason forecasts the Bucs averaged six wins, but they now appear to be a two or three-win team...

Every time I read something like this I feel like I'm living in some weird parallel universe.

If things go right over the next few weeks, we could be playing to clinch the South (for all practical intents and purposes) when we host the Falcons on Monday night in early November.

I'm not even too worried about the South at this point though - I'm focused on the Giants/Vikings/49ers for home field throughout.

I love cheese. Also, I love Kool-Aid. These are two things I will be serving at my party. In February. For sure.

Watch what happens if we win a game behind 2 TD's off of punt returns. Then the pundits will applaud our special teams, and their heads will explode from all the nice things there are to say about us.

And to think...at the end of last season, I would have been happy with just one of the two. Now we have both! It didn't happen overnight, that's for sure, but the changes that have been made on both sides of the ball have created something very, very special that is a pleasure to witness. And now it seems the critics are taking notice. So much for flying under the radar...but even though we're being viewed as a serious contender I don't think that many of our remaining opponents can do anything to stop us.
