New Orleans Saints motto for the 2012 season: "If there's a chance, then there's a battle"

Some in the football world believe it will be nearly impossible for the New Orleans Saints to end the season 12-4 and although they have won two games in a row, they are far from “greener pastures.”

But the one degree you can count on is if there is even a chance with the Saints, there will be an all out fight. Having moved up dramatically in the NFC South, the New Orleans Saints are very much still in the “picture.”

One of the team’s greatest highlights is the fact that the suffering defense made some surprising stops during Sunday’s game versus the Bucs. In fact, they came up with five stops straight in a row during the middle of the game.

What is clearly evident is the notion that Saints quarterback Drew Brees seems to be in his flow, finishing with 377 yards and four touchdowns on 27 completions. He was able to locate and pinpoint the team’s receivers when it was much needed.

The Saints are not bothered by their current record, but of the future games giving them more chance and reason than in any other seasons past. This group of players believes in themselves and will have plenty to prove.

    New Orleans Saints you can’t go wrong if every player believe in themselves. Now this is faith players hold onto that you can do it, yes there is a lot of people’s saying the Saints can’t make the playoffs. No one can make this call but the New Orleans Saints on the win or lose stages, New Orleans Saints say they can run 12–4 and believe they can its done.

    You clowns are dreaming. 12-4 with that defense? Yeah right. “Having moved up dramatically in the NFC South, the New Orleans Saints are very much still in the “picture.”. Moved up dramatically? Where? One game out of last place. Still 4 games out of first. That’s what you call movement? Still in the picture? Dude, you got 2 wins. Be realistic. i don’t care how many points the Saint offense score. You’re not going to win 12 games in a row. The Saints defense can’t stop ANYBODY. And do you really believe the offense is going to out score every team they play. If that was true. They would be undefeated. Stop fooling yourselves.

      Man you need to stop hating anything could happen in football. Just because the falcons 6-0 don’t mean they will make the playoff nor the SB look at GB Packers in 2011 all win didn’t play in the SB nobody knows the game but the players. So don’t you fool yourself saying a team can’t win 12 games in a roll, because it can be done and your defense don’t need to be hitting on all 8 cylinders either. Only a QB and the players knows what they can do to win, me myself and any team playing has respect for the New Orleans Saints because they are a team that will beat you if you go in with your head in the air this is what Tampa Bay tought.

        I never said it couuldn’t be done. I said the Saints are not going to do it. Give me one instance, where a team started 0-4. Then won 12 games in a row. Name one. Come on man. You know better than that. Unless your defense does a complete 180. it’s not going to happen.You beat the Chargers. We know how GOOD they are. (MNF) And you beat the Bucs. One of the worst pass defenses in the league. Do you really believe it’s going to be that easy the rest of the way. And what the hell do the Falcons have to do with this.

          Because the New Orleans Saints going to beat them with the defense they have.

            Man, if they beat the Falcons. it won’t be because of the defense. Even YOU can’t believe that,
