RE: [patriotzip] Saints Threatening 2007 Pats Records?
- Well, I'd rather see the Saints win the NFC championship than have it go to the Giants. The Vikings would be OK with me too; although I dread the media overkill on Favre. (That despite the fact that I personally remain a Favre fan.) I don't have many "I hate' em" teams in the NFC. Cowboys, because of Jones, are in that group; but I don't think we have to worry about them this season. I have a few of them in the AFC! :-)

Subject: [patriotzip] Saints Threatening 2007 Pats Records?Right now the Saints are on a pace to break the 2007 Patriots' record for points in a season. They're scoring more per game than the '07 Pats AND, for now, they remain undefeated. Plus here's a big difference between the teams which helps the Saints. New Orleans plays in a dome, and their divisional foes are southern teams. They don't have a lot of games in the northeast in bad weather late in the year. The Saints may not face as much of an offensive drop off late in the year as New England did.On the other hand, the Saints are doing this despite back to back sub par performances by Drew Brees against the Bills and the Jets. Both ended up being Saints wins. Then Brees throws 3 picks and loses a fumble yesterday. Saints still score 46 and come back from a 21 point deficit. Scary.Their defense gets lots of turnovers, but it does seem vulnerable at times.Scott Sheaffer
