The New Orleans Saints

Are 7-3 and leading their division now by a game and a half.  I have to say that the last 7 minutes of the Atlanta game brought back that feeling that all Saints fans are familiar with, and which Hokie Gajan so aptly put: only the Saints can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

That sinking feeling of games slipping away in the last moments was all too real for all too long.

But, what separates the Saints of the Sean Payton/Drew Brees era is that it dares us to believe the opposite.  Even when momentum shifts and it looks like the Saints will let a game get away from them, there's always the likelihood that these Saints will reach down deep and pull up something to earn a win.

That 4th down stop in overtime is just what we Saints fans have come to hope and believe is possible.

Geaux Saints!  And Who Dat?!
