Default Could the Saints go undefeated?

http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/33424889/ns/sports-nfl/

Quote:
The Patriots set the NFL record for touchdowns in a season back in 2007 when they scored 75. They broke the mark of 70 set by the 1984 Dolphins. The Saints have so far scored 25 touchdowns, putting them on pace for 80. New Orleans has scored 192 points. The Patriots at this point had 182.

Quarterback
The passing stats of Tom Brady in the first five games of 2007 and Saints quarterback Drew Brees so far this year are uncanny. Brees is 110 for 159 (69.2 completion percentage) with 13 touchdowns, two picks, four sacks and a yards-per-attempt of 8.81. He’s thrown for 1,400 yards.

Through the first five games of 2007, Brady was 117 for 158 (74.1 completion percentage) with 16 touchdowns, two picks, three sacks and a yards-per-attempt of 8.75. He’d thrown for 1,383 yards.

Like Brady in 2007, Brees has the ball out so quickly defenses are failing to put any significant pressure on him. And Brees’ accuracy on intermediate throws — on display in the Saints’ 48-27 shellacking of the Giants last week — has been the strongest part of his game. He and his receivers are so good it hardly seems fair to defenses. Like Brady in 2007.

Running back
So far, the Saints’ committee of running backs, Pierre Thomas, Mike Bell and Reggie Bush, have combined for 712 yards. The Saints as a team have gained 798 yards on 173 carries (4.6 yards per carry) and nine touchdowns.

The 2007 Patriots got 672 yards from Sammy Morris, Laurence Maroney and Kevin Faulk. And as a team, New England had the same number of carries as New Orleans — 173 — for 775 yards (4.5 average) and four touchdowns.

The Saints’ rushing attack is, according to Tucker, what’s making the offense go from very good to truly great.
Interesting take.

The Dolphins have upset potential this week if they can control time of possession like they did against the Colts and the defense can step up for them.

Hopefully the Saints beat the Dolphins though...for obvious reasons.

They could--their D is playing well b/c of the pressure their offense puts on other teams to score. With some luck it is possible...2 games left vs ATL, 1 game vs the Pats and 1 vs the Cowpukes

Robert Meachem ain't no slouch either. And then you have Jeremy Shockey at TE. Breez has some weapons to go along with an offensive line that gives him all day to throw.

I don't know if they'll go undefeated, but they are the clear cut Super Bowl favorites, IMO.

If anybody on that schedule has a good chance, it'd be the Falcons IMO.

Default Re: Could the Saints go undefeated?

When the Saints finally decide to make it through the second half of a season without imploding we can start talking about them being undefeated. They have always had that tendency, no matter how well they do.

I don't think the question should be could because of course any team in any league could do anything. I think I would ask are they.

Nobody is going 19-0 until the Texans in 2010. So no, the Aints are not going undefeated.

Plus, they have Pierre Thomas running really well in the backfield. Mike Bell isn't doing so bad either. Even Reggie Bush is contributing.
