Re: playoffs?.........playoffs?.............yes

I looked over the remaining schedule over and over and IMHO I think it favors the Saints, if they play like they did against the Seahawks they can win most of their games remaining, if they can put up 21-28 points per game and our defense plays well ( 5 sacks against the Hawks) I think the Saints are in the game toward the end of the 4th QTR.
They have to take it one game at a time, beat the Falcons Sunday which I think they can because the Falcons are playing terrible against the pass.
9-7 in the NFC gets you a wild card IMO.
We'll know a little more about how Saints after the Falcon game, with a win everyone will again be excited including the players which is the most important...

Rest In Peace JoeSam, thanks for everything my friend.

Re: playoffs?.........playoffs?.............yes

I like what sportsline is saying, but lets not get carried away. I told many buddies of mine that it would not be a shocker to see the Saints turn the season around, based on their remaining schedule. The Saints have no one left that is going to automatically beat them. Well, maybe Jacksonville, but no one else. It would be an amazing feat if they happen to pull it off...

Another thing I told my buddies is the Saints are going to do something to get us all interested again, and believing that they are going to turn it around and have a big season after all. Well, one win against Seattle and I see the headlines ever where. Let's see how this pans out in a few more weeks...

Re: playoffs?.........playoffs?.............yes

If that same team that played Seattle sunday night keeps showing up then I think we have a good shot at the playoffs. It's probably gonna take some help though. Tampa is 4-2 with a weak schedule ahead. I don't see Tampa running the table, but I do think it's very possible that they can get to 9-7. I don't think we're gonna have much room for error from here on out.

Re: playoffs?.........playoffs?.............yes

9-7 is very possible for us
I think Jax can beat us and I always think ATL will upset us once and a while.
fear the falcons - always fear atlanta.
even after last night.
but yes 9-7 is possible if and only if we beat atlanta next week.

Re: playoffs?.........playoffs?.............yes

Hmmmm Other then the fact that statistics, history and the preformace in the previous 4 games(to Seahawks game) begs to differ with this dream...

Statically we are below average in almost every catagory both offensively and defensively vs teams that are not the Falcons. And we have already spotted the division 1st & 2nd place teams a divisional game against us.

Historically only 1 team has ever over come an 0-4 start to reach the playoffs!!!

I know we want to be optimistic but OMG playoffs...

Ha Ha just kidding. Right?

I look for 10-6 or 9-7. Both could get us in.
