Do you think they will be in the super bowl.
Welcome to the board!
This poll is interesting... it's kind of like, "How much do you like me?"
a) A whole lot
b) A lot
d) Yeah, sorta
I think the Saints are a definite threat to win the NFC (and then probably get beaten by an AFC team in the Super Bowl). The question is balance. They gave up 39 points (some off 4 turnovers, right?) to the Bears in last year's title game. The Bears. The Rex Grossman led Bears. Enough said.
Gotta do better than that.
I'd argue 50/50 they go all the way to the NFC Championship / Superbowl.
The only team I see standing in the way of the Saints are the Bears; I really can't name any clearly dominant NFC team other than those two.
Unless some team erupts from out of nowhere, the destiny of the NFC lies in the arm of Rex Grossman.
Yeah i think they need homefield advantage .
I certainly HOPE NOT!! Sorry, I know you and Elle are pseudo TEXAN fans, and I appreciate that, I think. BUT, I am 100% TEXAN, 0% Saints fan!!!
Since this is not a smack forum, I will leave it at that. My bet is on the Bears or Hawks. SOMEDAY, the Niners!!!!!!!
I actually think, assuming McNabb stays healthy, that the Eagles will be the NFC representative. I'm expect the Saints to make the playoffs, but I don't see them as the easy favorite out of the NFC.
Pretty much my line of thought as well....of course it helps that my fav NFC team is the Eagles. They draft well and i expect Kearse will be back with a fire and Bunkley to make a bigger impact at DT this year. Tony Hunt will be pushing for the #2 spot behind Westbrook and i think Reid might have finally figured out how a good running game can really help what he loves to do most. Pass the ball. I know they lost Stallworth but i think Curtis can pick up the slack and Reggie Brown Continues to develop into a solid receiver.
The Saints will definately win the south and will press for homefield.They would've gone last year had Reggie not been stupid in Taunting the Bear's D. I'm expecting at some point thisyear Rex will get pulled for Greise. Say what you will about Brian but at least his play isn't not schizo like Rex.
The Eagles ? we beat them twice and i dont see Mcnabb staying healthy all season , Yes i think the Bears , Hawks and Saints will be the best in the nfc . I like the Texans , and hope they do well this year , i just bleed black and gold sorry.
Yeah Im no pseudo either ,maybe psycho, ooh watch out!
I truly hope the Pats fall flat on their figurative faces. I doubt the world will be so lucky, though.
The Pats are scary ,but the Saints can take em.
I hope someone else takes them before it gets to that point.
Maybe the Texans? then play the Saints in the bowl and saints win , but hear me out . The Texans are primed for a run the next season and they become an AFC dynasty.
I like the saints, but then I like a lot of teams that are historically bad. I guess I'm always hoping they break out and become a contender. That's just what the Saints did. Plus they play a fun type of football with the puissant offense.
The Texans are due and I think they take a big step up this season. Maybe not the SuperBowl, but they have a shot to get into the playoffs as a wild card. There's always some breakout team so why not the Texans?
I just think it's amazing how last season at this time the Saints were, well, the Saints, and now they are probably the consensus favorite to represent the NFC. It's a strange world.
I hope the Texans make the playoffs that would be nice, Im tired of the Colts,Pats, etc. . and yes i pull for the underdog to , Saints fan for 30 years and its nice to get some respect.
But, the Saints are your #1 team?? I've been a NINER fan since I was 15 y/o, followed them all through the GOOD years, absolutely worshiped Montana, had as much NINER stuff around my house as I did Oiler. Traveled to SF every chance I got just to see them play. BUT, when the Oilers played the NINERS my heart stayed with my hometown team, as it does now with the TEXANS!! I NEVER go to the NINERS board and brag about how they are my #2 team! Sorry if that bothers you, but, TO ME, and I admit, I am old and pretty much set in my ways, that is disrespectful.
Its ok to have two teams , atleast we are here , dont get upset I am a Texan fan and you cant stop me . I am a Saints fan to and you cant stop me
In the NFC I am a Cardinals fan. AFC team is really the Bengals. I do like the Texans and hope they do well but that is more attributable to the fact I live here in Houston. Plus they fit the underdog mold I have.
I think the Saints have a excellent team, are well coached and will most defintely be a favorite for the Super Bowl...if they stay injury free but that's any team.
I've heard or read they are not a powerhouse defense but have to confess I don't know enough about them on that side of the ball to know if that's true.
Brees is outstanding though and certainly Reggie is a threat everytime he gets a touch.
I have thought of several ways to respond to this post, but, I will just leave it alone. After all, this is a thread about the Saints and the mods will be quick to remind me that it is in the appropriate forum. Besides, I have been on this board for six years and I don't want to get banned!
