I was at a party a little while back and some fellas were making predictions about how the Saints were going to do this year and everyone was really getting in to just how good they thought the team would be. Guys, were saying, “Going to the Super Bowl!” and “They aren’t going to be that good but I think they are going to the playoffs!”
When it got to be my turn I just said “8-8.”
It was received very well but I simply said that I have no idea how they are going to do because they are, after all, the Saints. And simply because they are such it is easy to say they will go 8-8. It’s actually not such a gloomy outlook. They only did it once between the years of 1967 and 1982. 8-8 must have seemed like the Super Bowl then.
So, 8-8 in 2009 /2010, 2010 / 2011, 2011 / 2012, 2012 /2013 … The Vargmatrix is the never-ending prediction that the Saints will go 8-8 until Armageddon
