    this is a butt kicking from the saints put on the falcons. what do you guys think about the saints? do they have a legit shot at doing some damage this year and actually going to the playoffs?

    They certainly have a chance to win their division if the Panthers don't rebound (and soon). Once in the playoffs, anything can happen.

    They had the right defensive scheme for Vick that is for damn sure. They made the number one running team look terrible.

    First game back in the Superdome with all the hype, media attention, and activities of a Superbowl...I don't care if they were playing the All Madden team, they were going to win that game.

    As for the future, yes they have an excellent running game and a good enough defense, but I don't think it'll hold up for long. Just like with the Rams and every other team in the NFL, after 3 games it's tough to say what'll happen, but I predict no playoffs for the Aints.

    As one-sided as that game looked and as bad as the Falcons played, I almost got the impression that Atlanta was "under orders" to lose.

    As far as the Saints being for real? They beat Cleveland in week 1, Green Bay in week 2 and looked impressive last night, but it's still a bit early to say they can keep it up.

    I wasn't a believer of the Falcons, and no offense to anyone, but I'm certainly not a believer in the Saints. Until proven otherwise, I honestly don't think either team did that much just yet. It's week 3...

    as impressive as they looked last night, i just want to point out that they beat the browns and the packers in weeks 1 & 2, two 0-3 teams.

    That's the best point to be made here, I think. Tampa Bay will be doing nothing this year, especially after they lost Simms. Even with him they were pathetic offensively and couldn't contain Vick whom they've been able to handle for a while now. Carolina just doesn't seem like it's got everything together, so despite a lot of preseason hype they need to win me back if they want me to think they're going to be a contender this year. I still expect Atlanta to take the division though, simply because I think over the stretch of the year they'll be more consistent and successful than the Saints. Let's be clear about New Orleans. Not only were their two first wins against poor teams, but they weren't exactly dominant wins either.

    Re: are the saints for real?

    This what I predict from what I've seen so far
    wk-4 @ Carolina, maybe
    wk-5 vs Tampa Bay, Win
    wk-6 vs Philly, Loss
    wk-7 Bye
    wk-8 vs Baltimore,Loss
    wk-9 @ Tampa Bay, Win
    wk10 @ Pittsburgh, Win
    wk11 vs Cincinnati, Loss
    wk12 @ Atlanta, Win
    wk13 vs Whiners, Win
    wk14 @ Dallas, Win
    wk15 vs Washington, Win
    wk16 @ Gmen, Loss
    wk17 vs Carolina, maybe

    As Nick stated, Carolina hasn't shown me anything to date. Atlanta has a good defense, but their running game which has won their games so far obviously has been figured out by the defensive coordinators now, and I have zero faith in Vick to get the job done in the air. Tampa Bay stinks. This division reminds me a lot like the NFC north.

    All I know is that this year looks to be exciting, with twist and turns in each division that will be decided in the last two weeks of the season for division titles and wild cards. I LOVE IT!

    Saints win at Pittsburgh and win at Dallas ??? Not on their best day.:x

    So you're saying the Saints will go 12-4 or 10-6 at the worst ? You feeling ok bigredman ? We're talking about the Aints here.
