Saints 2009-2010 Season Recap (Part 1)

1. Detroit Lions: W 45-27

Drew Brees and Company started the season hot as they played a great game in their opener at the Superdome. Drew threw six touchdowns and passed for over 350 yards. Although Shockey caught two touchdown passes, Devery Henderson was the hot receiver with five catches for 103 yards, and Mike Bell was the big runner with a career-high 143 yards. Sharper picked off Stafford twice as the Saints rolled through game number one.

2. @ Philadelphia Eagles: W 48-22

Many people wondered what kind of away team the Saints would be this year. Last season, the Saints lost nearly every away game and Philly wasn’t exactly an easy road test. The Black and Gold received an A+ and all of a sudden became a team to watch. Drew threw another 300 yard game and got three more touchdowns added to his season total of 9. Colston picked up 98 yards on 9 catches and Bell rushed for 86 yards in the big defeat over the Eagles. Darren Sharper got another interception that he brought 97 yards to the house.

3. @ Buffalo Bills: W 27-7

Whoa, hold on! The Saints can play defense too? Yeah the Bills have a sorry offense but their only touchdown was on a fake field-goal. With four sacks, a fumble, an interception, and Terrell Owens playing a catch-less game, the Saints defense was stout, and defense wins championships as the Saints roll through their second straight away game. Drew Brees didn’t even throw a touchdown and didn’t even hit 200 yards after his amazing first two games. On the plus side, Pierre Thomas made his debut with 2 touchdowns and 126 yards all gained in the second-half.

4. New York Jets: W 24-10

Drew plays another bad game, but the new, aggressive Black and Gold defense eats rookie Mark Sanchez alive. 2 of the Saints 3 touchdowns came from a fumble recovery and Sharper taking another one to payday for 99 yards. The fumble recovery came from an aggressive hit to Sanchez in the end zone.  Pierre Thomas was the Saints’ number one receiver and rusher with 132 total yards.

5. Bye Week

Will the Payton’s new strategy of just giving the players the bye-week off work?

6. New York Giants: W 48-27

Yes! The Saints beat the daylight out of the 5-0 Giants and the Saints big, powerful offense is back as they put 493 total yards on the Giants’ defense. Brees gets back into his swing, tossing 4 touchdowns and breaking his streak of two games without one. Colston was the games top receiver with 166 yards. The Saints still haven’t trailed this year and have beaten every opponent by 14 points or more. Are the Saints the new elite team? Will they be this year’s champions?

The Saints first six weeks proved to Louisiana and the country that the Saints are a new team. They proved that they have a powerful, aggressive defense that can make huge plays and score points. How much longer can the 5-0 Saints keep this up?
