man, you would think by all the talk from aints fans that only an act of god would stop the team from going 19-0 & winning every game by at least 30 points this season. as we were told, drew brees is better than every other HOF qb ever combined, their defense was going to curb stomp every offense it faced, bill walsh couldn't hold sean payton's clipboard ... blah blah blah blah. how's that working out so far ? at this rate you diehard fans will be wearing bags over your heads again. contender my balls. mediocre at best.
