Every week on many news websites the headline leads off with the Colts still being undefeated and the Saints being undefeated is like a second thought article. Tonight the Saints beat the Pats 38-17 and MSN's site had it tucked away to only the sports blurb when the Colts being undefeated goes right up there at the top of the screen. What do the Saints have to do to get some love from the press? Draft Tebow? Naw, if they drafted Tebow then he'd be getting the virtual Lewinskis from the press while the Saints would continue to get no love or respect.

How about win a Super Bowl?

Seriously, the Saints are getting plenty of recognition this season. As for respect, there's just not enough of a track record for New Orleans thus far. Win a title this year, and that will be solved.

well...I would say that all I seem to be hearing about here in phoenix is about your team, so Im not sure what kind of coverage you are looking for. If you get past the Vikings, it looks to me like you wont be stopped. Win a couple of SB and you will get the respect. Your team was bad for so long. You remind me of a bad team that turns on the burners red hot for about a year (85 Bears), but I just see you guys losing 5 games next year and buring out. This year however, you are going to the SB for sure, Bret Farvre is good, but he wont be playing defense against you in the NFC championship.

Prediction for SB:

NO 42
Indy: 28

The problem here is that you are getting your sports news from MSN.

All the reputable sports sites are falling over themselves to offer the highest praise of the Saints.

If you are a Saints fan, you should want them to fly under the radar. Teams that get hyped and lots of recognition are doomed to fail.

Case in point the Carolina Panthers. Last year, under the radar 12-4. This year high expectations probably 7-9.

I concur. I know all about that (1996 Broncos 13-3, upset by JAX in first playoff game). Although I am a Broncos fan in St. Louis, I will honestly tell the New Orleans fans that the 2009 Saints are a DANGEROUS team this year, very reminscient of the 1999 St. Louis Rams. The Saints are getting it done in a very quiet, effective but pronounced style week after week. You had one small "scare" against the Lambs here , but other than that you have owned your games, including the beautiful dismantling of Belicheat, Turnip Brady and the Patsies . The hell with the media, let New Orleans sneak in to the dance. Real football fans know the truth.

I bleed Orange, it's all about Denver to me, but if we're out of the running - GEAUX SAINTS
