Let's see what the Saints have got

All right Saints fans, here we are again.

That's right, the Saints are in the playoffs. They've won only one playoff game in their history, much less the two in a row they'll need to reach the Super Bowl or three in a row to win it.

The guys in Vegas think the Saints can get Postseason Win No. 2. New Orleans is a four-point favorite over Philadelphia.

And the Saints have been in the divisional round before, losing at Minnesota back in 2000.

So what should we all expect Saturday against the Eagles?

Who knows?

The Eagles didn't exactly set the world on fire on Sunday. They may be about to run out of gas after a great run.

Or the Saints could sputter on offense enough to expose their defense.

We just don't know. But we do know this, rarely has a Saints team had the weapons this one has. Defense is an issue, but the Saints should be able to score points. That alone means they have a chance.

What does this say about my hometown team, the Detroit Lions, when the Saints (THE SAINTS?!) have a legitimate shot at the Super Bowl while the Lions just extended Matt Millen's deal for another season.

If the Saints do make it to the Super Bowl, there will be one less team on that "never to have played in the Super Bowl" list of teams. Ah, but the Lions will still be there! Let's just hope the Lions don't take Brady Quinn with the No. 2 pick.

If you Saints fans can't stand Tom Benson, at least you don't have the Ford family as owners.

Oh one last thing...

the Lions have won one playoff game since their 1957 NFL championship.

Enjoy it while you can Saints fans. Hopefully, this is the start of something big for you.
