I’m watching Monday night football, enjoying watching two other teams slop through a game (Dallas and Carolina), kinda gloating over “my team,” the 3-0 Saints, who haven’t missed a beat so far.   In fact, my black and gold boys are setting a standard this year.  I agree with Saints radio commentator and former QB Bobby Hebert, talking on NOLA’s WWL radio this past week when Hebert suggested this team looks like something special, maybe the dream that has eluded us longsuffering Saints fans for lo these many years.

Pierre Thomas's day-before bout with the stomach virus wasn't apparent as he galloped through the Bills defense for two 2nd half touchdowns. (Thanks, AP, for the great photo!)

Yesterday’s 27-7 gulping of the Bills showed two more dimensions of this team that we didn’t see in the first two games.  First, Buffalo shut down Drew Brees’ air attack, but we found out we really DO have a running game that can carry the offense (the rest of the NFL says “Yikes!”).  Second, the defense locked Buffalo down.  I mean, the Bills were dominated!

It’s way too soon to jump to conclusions, but for the time being, this sure is fun!
