5 Reasons We Should Be Happy With 13 and 3

Now that the dust has settled on the regular season and in the lull before the playoffs begin I thought I would reflect on the season so far with my list of 5 reasons to be happy with the 13 and 3 record.

1.  It's the best record we've ever had!  I couldn't have asked for a better season to watch from my bed and couch whilst recovering from spine surgery.  Talk about great bad luck!

2.  For the first half of the season we looked like the most complete Saints team I've ever seen in 27 years of support (I would say 32 but I don't remember the first 5 years of my life).  Yes the D is not looking anywhere near as good as the early season but we've still got a heck of a chance if we can just get some basics working again... T-A-C-K-L-I-N-G!!

3.  Being 13 and 3 lets us dream that one day we can better the record.  Sure it may never happen in my lifetime but you've got to have goals and if we had have gone perfect I think a lot of people would have settled permanently for living in the past like them dam Dolphins.

4.  Drew Brees was the best QB in the NFL this season and that's the first time you could say that about a Saints QB.

5.  It's been a hell of a party all season and I've enjoyed reading loads of great posts by the likes of Saintseester, Michelle/Saints Rants, Chef Who Dat, Hakim Drops the Ball, Black and Gold Patrol and Moose Denied to name but a few.  I'm sure y'all know about them already but for the odd folk who doesn't they're all are on my blog roll if you want to go read them.

Now the regular season is over I am getting confident again about the playoffs.  I think the time to regroup and recharge will end up doing the team good.  If anything it may just focus a few minds on what is at stake now the hype has died down.  Here's hoping!!


  1. I am looking forward to the playoffs, and I think I am going to especially enjoy the relaxation of watching our competition go at each other during the first round.

    Happy New Year, from one Saints' blogger to another.

  2. Me too. It's nice to sit on the sidelines this week and watch our opponents get tired and banged up ahead of our clash.

    Happy New Year Saintseester. I hope you had a great holiday with the family. Here's to a great start to 2010 and a Saints Super Bowl win!
