Saints have an identity
The team that has lacked an identity for years has one now - they're Reggie Bush's team, and Drew Brees' team and Deuce McAllister's team. They're a team being molded in the way new coach Sean Payton wants -- character, toughness and intelligence. Let's face it, the Saints were lacking all three of those last year.
Knowing their history, you keep waiting for the Saints to do something stupid. So far, in the Payton Era, they don't appear to be doing anything head scratching.
That may be the biggest upset of all.
