Saints fans enjoy undefeated status, already entertaining playoff hype

Before the season started, national sports writers were picking the Saints to finish in the middle of the pack, at number 16.

Today, they have a little more respect.  Most NFL power rankings list the Saints at number three, behind the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.

Some fans are afraid to predict a playoff run this soon.

“Let’s give it a coupla more games.  But I’m optimistic we can go all the way,” one Saints fan told us.

But others are even bandying the “s” word:  Super Bowl.

“I think the Saints are going to the playoffs.  I’m not saying Super Bowl, but I believe they’re going to the playoffs,” said another.

The Saints still have to face the Bears in Chicago Sunday, then they go to New England for a tough matchup with the Patriots.  Add to that a challenge from the Seahawks in Seattle the first week in December…and lots of unknown territory to cover in between.  Be cautious?  Of course.  Be optimistic?  Without a doubt.

As one Saints fan put it:  “let’s keep the enthusiasm going.”
