New Orleans Saints at bottom of NFC South after Week 2 loss

The New Orleans Saints suffered another heart breaker that came down to a touchdown attempt with a two-point conversion in order to tie the game and go into overtime.  Of course the results were the same as last week and now the Saints are 0-2 on the season and 0-1 in the NFC South.

This leaves the team in an unusual position of trailing their division for the first time in years.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers are tied for with a 1-1 record on the season and the division.

The Atlanta Falcons have played no division games yet but are technically undefeated with a 1-0 season record.  They will face the Denver Broncos Monday night and attempt to go 2-0 on the season.

The Saints haven’t started 0-2 since their 2007 season and missed the playoffs completely after having a magical season in 2006.  Their schedule doesn’t get any easier either as they will face some tough opponents especially on the road.

    New Orleans Saints is at the bottom with the cards stacked against them in the NFC south. With somuch negative things being said about them and against them with know peace of mind. One thing I can say and will say that I have faith in the New Orleans Saints and the players and coaches. They are a team to watch just because they are down two games and had a unfair offseason. Loss some key players doing offseason, and head coach season long suspension on a supposed to be bounty program and still know evidences to prove it. They time is coming they going to be in a spot leading to the Super bowl, key players going to be up and running. They window has not closed on them yet Saints knows they have lot haters, the only team in the NFL playing under hardships. They will be back in 2012 don’t miss it something that never happen in the NFL history going to happen in 2012 thru 2013 GOD IS IN CONTROL.

    The team is in a difficult postion rigth now, but I think that the offense isn´t as explosive as it was last season, and the defense is playing at the same level they did last season or even worse. Yesterday, the weren´t able to stop Panthers offense, and you can´t winn a game with only a superb offense team.
    They have to work it out, and try to realize that Sean Payton won´t return till next season and find a solution to win games with a defense more decisive.
    Go Saints!!!!
    I Never give up on you, boys. I hope to see the Saints playing the Superbowl in the Superdome
