New Orleans Saints still lack the consistency to win it all

By Editorial Staff

Although the New Orleans Saints are one of the better teams in the National Football League, their play has been very inconsistent from week-to-week this season.

But the Saints should have some momentum going into next weeks NFC South divisional match-up with the 5-3 Atlanta Falcons after decisively defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-16.

The victory over the Buc’s comes on the heels of one of the worst losses in the Sean Payton/Drew Brees era; last week the Saints showed that you have to do more than show up, you really have to play as a team to win in this league.

While Saints quarterback Drew Brees is leading all quarterbacks in passing yards, the flip side to that is that he’s second in the league lin interceptions with 11, which is behind only his San Diego Charger predecessor Phillip Rivers.

Every week the Saints work hard in practice to try and correct mistakes made in previous games, the player’s inconsistencies, and the new players in the line-up due to injuries.

But if anyone would have told me that at the end of week nine, the Saints would be on top of the NFC South with a record of 6-3, I would think that was great.

Just imagine if the Saints finished off the rest of this season like they played the first 13 weeks of the 2009 season, where they were defeating every opponent by a large margin.

As a Saints fan, I would like to hear about my team as much as the rest of the highly rated teams do, but like coach Payton always says, let all of the other teams get the attention right now, “we will have our time”.

I know head coach Sean Payton likes that the Saints are flying under the radar, as far as the media is concerned. Honestly they just don’t get the coverage the Packers or Patriots do, and that’s just fine.

The Saints have earned their respect back after their latest win, but they also know that there are no guarantees week to week in this league.

Who Dat Says that the Saints will win Super bowl 46, we the fans do, and don’t care what the big media outlets even have to say about it.
