How good are we, really?

Can we beat the top tier teams this year?

We only have 4 games (Chargers, Packers, Saints, & Eagles) to prove ourselves against top teams (on our schedule).

So if we go 0-4 against those teams, will we be considered a bottom feeder once again, even if we smash the little fella's on our schedule?

Your thoughts?

after NEW ORLEANS we'll know!
We need to take at least two of those games to get some real respect.
This is a question best saved for around mid-season, or at least after the Saints game.
you only listed 2 top tier teams - Saints and Packers, Charger's are just in a bad division and the Eagles are big question mark.

We are good, but not Packer and Saint good, although we could beat the Packers if things went our way, but the Saints are GOOOOOD!
We're pretty damn good, but not good enough to win all of those tough games. IMO, this year (assuming Alex is solid at QB) is the next step in the evolutionary process of building a winner. You start winning most of the games you should, and some of the games you shouldn't (which generally puts you in the playoffs, but not beyond).

Next year (if all the critical pieces are still in place), should be the year where we win most if not all of the games we should, and most of the games we shouldn't, which gives us a chance to go deep into the playoffs and potentially a shot at a 6th ring.

saints fans are giving us a lot of respect. many actually think we'll give them one of their few losses this season.. we better blow out seattle and keep up with new orleans
