The New Orleans Saints could not be off to a better start. The Saints are 3-0 and return home to take on the 3-0 Jets of New York…as arguably the best team in the National Football League.

The Saints have long been considered a legit contender largely due to the play of their all-star QB and their high powered offense. But now the Saints are even more feared because of balance...

The Saints can run the ball; their special teams are playing well, and their defense…yes their defense…is moving up the charts.

... while the offense took a while to get on track, the Saints defense was dominant all day long. The Saints came up with four sacks and they limited the Bills to just 243-yards of total offense...

STs have come a long way since Game 1. Great job by the coaching staff making adjustments and paying extra emphasis to STs in practice. It definately paid off this week. We played the field position game w/ our D & STs like we have been doing that every weekend and we all know how far fetched that is. This game shows me the maturity of both this team & SP as a HC. We lose a game like this the last 2 years. Rather than figuring out a way to win w/ the run, the STs & the D, we would start forcing passes, leading to INTs & easy points for the opposition.

I.E. At Chicago in the NFCCG?

in the summer I got flamed for arguing that we needed balance, I am so happy with payton for realizing the run is necessary even though we have the best qb in the league...we can win any type of game this year
