If the Saints were a stock ...


CNBC's Jim Cramer would be screaming for you to SELL!!!

Yeah, yeah, I'm shocked there wasn't something taped to my office door this morning from Roy Lang about the Saints improbable comeback victory at home against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fine, enjoy it now, Saints fans. You deserve to savor every morsel of this 5-1 start. However, the bye week couldn't come at a worse time for the Saints. Those guys are rocking and here comes the time off to bring back some reality.

Look ahead on the schedule and you'll see more pitfalls than there are in an Indiana Jones script.

Losses ahead to Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati ... heck, put an L whenver you see a team from the AFC. The end of the season NFC East trifecta is incredibly daunting and then the playoff ending, one-on-one, thrill-kill versus the Panthers. (Who by the way have won four in a row.)

It's been a great run ... but it's time to sell.

If Michael Messerly was a stock, the SEC (and, no not the conference Husker Boy) would have delisted him.
Ernest's it is for my winning bet.

Wait a second, lose to Cincinnati? Didn't the Bengals lose to Tampa Bay -- a team the Saints beat? Your logic is like your place on the podcast -- irrelevant.

I would have agreed with you any other year, but this year the Saints are a different team.

They gave up some big plays against the Eagles, but the Saints owned the fourth quarter.

They held the NFL's No. 1 offense when it mattered most, and then reeled off the final 8:26 with the game-winning drive.

You think the Saints would have done that in previous seasons? Especially after the Eagles rallied to tie the score?
Heck no. Previous Saints teams would have folded in the fourth quarter.
