New Orleans Saints: 13-1

Dude, what is your problem? Seriously. A 24-yarder?

Finally. The Saints at last fail to pull a rabbit out of their helmets and their unbeaten streak is no more. No thanks to Nick Folk (you jackass!) who pulled a Suisham. I'd really like to know what kind of voodoo curses or crude sexual taunts the Saints are using that unnerve their opponent kickers so badly that they miss chip-shot field goals at key moments. Magnets? Hypnosis? Anyway, the ultimate nightmare scenario has been avoided. You know, Drew Bress, leading his team to a 19-0 perfect season, capping it all off with a Super Bowl victory in the very home stadium of the team that not only passed on him twice but previously stood as the only NFL team to post a perfect season. Not gonna happen. One down, one to go. The Colts luck needs to run out soon too. Hard to see them losing to the Jets or Bills though. A loss, if it is to come, may have to wait for the playoffs. Maybe long-time Dolphin fans will wind up rooting hard for Brees after all, but as the instrument that drives a Super Bowl stake through the heart of the Indianapolis Colts' drive for a perfect season.

I don't know what Folk's problem is. I thought that he was going to be one of the better young kickers.

By the way, during the offseason, you guys should do a feature on "What ifs" in Dolphins history.

For example:
1. What if Rusty Chambers, Larry Gordon, and David Overstreet didn't die?
2. What if the Dolphins drafted Louis Murphy instead of Patrick Turner in the 2009 draft?
