The last occurrence of Saints-related Bradyface was pretty spectacular.

That game was what finally made the public realize that the Saints weren't some flash in the pan. Up to that point I kept hearing everyone saying, "Yeah, well, who have you really played yet?" And remember, this was when the Pats were true royalty, and it was a night game IIRC.

The next morning the country knew who we were, and that we were comin' for 'em.

Yeah, exactly.  That was the big "they're for real" statement game, and it was specTACular.

InmanRoshi: Jim from Saint Paul: InmanRoshi:  I'm not sure where the hype of Rob Ryan is coming from considering he faced his first good passing defense for the first time last week and allowed their QB an AYPA of 9.4.

Well, alot of it has to do with the Saints giving up more yardage then anyone EVER last year and they have looked more then just "functional" so far.

 I guess if you put a lot of value into things like total yardage, you would be happy.

However, I would be more much more happy that I have the 2nd best   offense in the NFL that is able to overcome a defense that allows an opposing an AYPA of 9.4

Wasn't the majority of that 9.4 off of the bomb Chicago caught in garbage time?  I think the game was already 26-10 when it happened.  By the time Chicago adjusted their offensive scheme and started getting yards, the game was all but over.

vicejay: ..Then again, this was shot last year, and didn't do much for the Cowboys' D.  Hmmm

They had an average defense last year with about 30 starters out. He completely overachieved with what he was given to work with.

So naturally Jerry Jones canned him
