We are in another world that we have NEVER been to before. It's like being on Star Trek... exploring strange new worlds. Undefeated... errr... ummm... Saints? 11-0??? I know I am dreaming or on life support somewhere but if that's the case... just leave me right where I am!
I live in Cowboy land. Home of the Death Star. And guess what? The game against the Saints is three weeks away and guess who they are talking about... you got it... the Saints! That's when you know your team is big time! When your team is the hot topic of conversation across the country and when they are the TEAM TO BEAT!
And... what am I supposed to do with the Saints all but assured of at least a first round bye? In seasons past it's always been about checking out the standings and trying to figure out how the Saints would be able to claw their way into the playoffs... either by one team losing or some other winning. Hell... I would cheer for that most hated of teams (Dirty Birds) to win if it were to help the Saints in securing a playoff spot! This year I don't have to! So how do I replace that almost favorite pastime?
So now I have a very very good team to cheer for and... I can't believe I'm saying this... EXPECT to WIN! Not just show up and give it their best shot... but to actually expect greatness!
All I can say is... enjoy this with every fiber of your being... this is OUR team that we've been waiting for since they first came into the league. WE deserve this... the city of New Orleans deserves this... and we may never get the chance to bask in this kind of glory again.
