Welcome in to Juan's World and I love that the Saints still have some unfinished business that they have to tend to next week. It's satisfying that they've accomplished their first goal of the season and that they reached it by beating the hated Atlanta Falcons.
Making the playoffs for the first time in four years is huge but it's not enough. Winning in Tampa Bay next week will complete the journey back to the top of the NFC South, giving the Saints that division title and a much-deserved home game to open the playoffs.
The Dome was rocking. I mean, it felt like the 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2013 seasons all over again. That's when the Saints were considered unbeatable at home. They look that part again this season as they've won seven of eight games on Poydras St. It's not imperative that the Saints open the playoffs at home because I think they are built to win anywhere and everywhere. But, playing at home would be a nice reward for a nice resurgence this season.
The Saints are heading back to the playoffs...doesn't that sound nice? Now, let's finish the job and beat the Bucs on Sunday.
Juan's World, Juan's World...Excellent!!!
