NewOrleansSaints.com is proud to welcome a new addition to our staff in the form of veteran tight end
Hey guys, I'm sorry there was no blog last week, but even an esteemed journalist like me needs a bye week.
What I'd like to do this week is touch on the Saints’ journey thus far and recap the things that have gotten us to this point.
Five weeks into the NFL season and the Saints are sitting at 4-0! We have seen great plays by old faithfuls like
At the beginning of the season I remember sitting with
The first two games we saw Drew Brees play out of his mind throwing 9 touchdowns and proving once again why he's the best quarterback in the league and we are the number one offense in the NFL!
By game 3 if you would've told me Drew Brees would not throw a touchdown the next two games, I would've guessed we lost pretty bad. But surprise-surprise, the pass happy Saints have a run game.
This four-headed monster of
Now for the biggest change from the past three years and the real reason we are 4-0 is our Defense. Now the obvious would be to talk about Darren Sharper and how he has picked off five balls in 4 games, two that he returned for touchdowns!

So now where are we really? Sorry to say Saints fans, it's too early to buy your tickets to Miami just yet. There's a lot of football still to be played, with games like the undefeated Giants this Sunday, Cowboys, and Patriots, there's still a long road ahead.
Oh, by the way, we haven't even got into the NFC South yet.
Our bye week came at a perfect time. Giving the players an opportunity to heal, rest, and refocus. Some guys even got a chance back to check out their alma maters play.
So what does all this mean? We've had a great start and now we are focused on continuing the type of play that has gotten us here. No turnovers, no sacks, run the ball, and dominate on defense.
If we can continue to do all those things, this just might be the season that New Orleans has been waiting for and deserves!
My challenge is to all the Saints fans with tickets to the game this week. Let’s make this the loudest and most passionate game of the season. The atmosphere was great against the Jets, but we can do better than that. The crowd started off strong, but the noise sort of toned down in the second quarter and third quarter. We need four strong quarters of the Who Dats! Be Loud! Be Proud!
