It’s time for a reality check Saints fans, whether you want one or not. Here is the low down on the Saints as of today. And they’re heading into what once again is a virtual must win for a team trying to make the post-season.

The Good: The Saints seemingly rose back from the dead by way of their recent win vs division rival Carolina.

The Bad: That win was accomplished against a severely depleted Panther team without the services of its all-pro tight end and an all-pro quarterback. Cam Newton was as far from a hundred percent as the Saints have been from a recent playoff birth.

The Ugly: Saints fans have seen this all before. The money that has been doled out to Drew Brees, Sean Payton, and GM Loomis has to start to show more dividends. One Super Bowl win isn’t enough.

Like the hit Janet Jackson song entitled: “What Have You Done for Me Lately?” The bottom line is that the Saints have not gotten the job done for the last three years for sure. And they cant keep living off the lone Super Bowl win and appearance to continue to cover their lackluster results on the field.
