This one was a nail-biter. That's me, on the right, making my Monday Night Football debut courtesy of NYSaint. You can catch it for yourself right around the Jonathan Goodwin injury late in the game.

Just a few quick notes because it's very late at night. These ought to get the conversation going. I will let you guys do the rest of the talking. My personal pictures and the game thread roll call are after the jump.

  • My voice is gone. The crowd was raucous and loud. And drunk.
  • Anyone else starting to get worried about how long this is going to last? I'm not trying to be a downer and 7-0 is pretty freakin' sweet but injuries alone might do the Saints in, let alone the usual bad luck.
  • It's a damn good thing the Saints have a secondary they can rely on. Did I just say that? What a difference a year Gregg Williams makes.
  • I think it's time to start having the Garrett Hartley discussion.
  • I found out that my seats are next to WWL media seats.
  • Sloppy play in a lot of areas. The turnovers have got to be cleaned up.
  • David Thomas was announced as the starting fullback. Is that what we're calling him now?
  • Reggie Bush was the only Saints running back not to fumble. Just thought I would throw that out there. He looked good.
  • The Saints pulled out a win with the black pants. And broke the Sports Illustrated curse. Nice.
  • The weak Panthers are next on the schedule. Can the Saints go back to just kicking other teams asses by 21 points. I thought that was kinda fun and certainly less stressful.

Fujita was taking notes.

Here's the roll-call. Huge amount of comments. Glad the overflow thread was useful. Thanks to everyone.
