Saints could use some love on the ESPN poll. They are asking the nation to rank the playoffs teams, and as of Monday morning the Saints are ranked number 4 of 8! I know there are a lot of dumb people out there, but this still kind of shocks me.
I kinda like it though. Even after the dominant season we have had, these last 3 games have almost brought us down to "sleeper" level (if such a thing can exist with a #1 team). What can be better than the Saints shocking the world AGAIN. 13-0 seemingly came out of no where. Now, we have to take care of the Cards, but the media buzz following the Vikings/Cowboys game will be the big story no matter what happens. In the AFC, the Jets are turning it on and demanding attention, but any combo of Jets or Chargers vs Colts will be a huge media story. Lets see if we can sneak our way into the big game.
Who cares what the nations thinks? I hope they win it all for the people of New Orleans! (and the select few odd ball fans out-of-state who have irrationally followed them loyaly since the days of Sam Mills) This is for us. I am sick of hearing people complain about how we dont get nation media coverage. And that Skipp Bailis doesn't respect us. And that no one will admit how good we are. WHO CARES! stop wasting your breath complaining over something that is so trivial and superficial! We will gain respect when we earn it...the only way any team really deserves respect...when we win the SUPER BOWL! 18-0 turned into a Super Bowl loss the Pats might not soon recover from. The Cards' amazing season and well played Super Bowl last year was erased by one drive and one amazing pass & catch between Big Ben and Santonio Holmes.
Whether we are winning flashy or ugly, with blowouts or come from behind squeakers, because of the offense or because of the defense...none of it matters. And it really doesn't matter what the media has to say about all of it. Thats why we have CSC. Dave gives the Saints the attention they deserve in our eyes. HE digs up the juicy nuggets that are too good to share with the entire nation. WE have Dave and the CSC all to ourselves! Enjoy it now, because when we win the big game, Dave will become a big media celebrity and forget about all us little people.
But i digress...if you want to go show your love for the Saints on the ESPN poll, here is the link. Or maybe we wont...maybe we should just show our love to Dave and thank him for the remarkable work he does day-in and day-out (even on his honeymoon). 2010 is gonna be a great year. We have the Saints AND we have Dave
