Not even a chance for Spoiler Role

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What about the scenario that Tampa loses to Washington, we beat Carolina then we beat Tampa at home. Does that seem unimaginable? Will that give our team anything to play for if we are tied atop the division at 6-6? ...

What about the scenario that Tampa loses to Washington, we beat Carolina then we beat Tampa at home. Does that seem unimaginable? Will that give our team anything to play for if we are tied atop the division at 6-6? If this team didnt give up after starting 0-4 I dont think they are going to mail it in only being 2 games out of the division race. Even though we started out in the crapper it was somewhat refreshing that this team didnt do alot of fingerpointing and placing the outcome of a 60 min game on one person. They seem to understand the whole concept of winning and losing as a team. Sure one player can make a mistake and affect the outcome of the game but there are 10 other guys on the field that could have affected the play as well. But man I cant understand why J David still allows wr to get behind him.

I'll play sunshiner today. The Saints pick themselves up and win the next three games. We beat Tampa in the process. Tampa still has a 3 game stretch where they play Washington, us, and Houston. The possibility of losing 2 of those games could happen, bringing us to a tie with them.
Unfortunately we're still a half game behind because of the division standing (at the time us 3-2, them 3-1). So we'd have to find another december loss for Tampa, preferably a division loss.

But say both Houston and Washington come through and we thoroughly beat TB at home. That 3 game losing streak puts them in our rear view.

Now on to the playoffs (sunshiny here remember). We'd be the third seed hosting a home wildcard game. Then we could hope against hope that we pull Dallas in the divisional round. Remember that it was less than a year ago they were soundly whupped by the Saints. It could happen.

Green bay falls to the Giants (5th seed) in Lambeau, and the NFC championship rolls into the Big Easy! Onto the Super Bowl!

I guess I'll wake up from this sunshiny dream now as it's stranger than fiction.

Re: Not even a chance for Spoiler Role

sure we won 4 strait to get back to .500 but that 4 game losing streak left us no room for error. and this team is not polished enough for little room for error. Any given week we need to be able to take a loss and still have a chance. The Saints arent bulit to play with they're backs against the wall. We are all fools to sit here and think we will win 6 strait to go 10-6. We are fools to think that we will win games solely with our offense. It Brees is off...we lose plain and simple. Our defensive line is average. But everything past that sucks. LB and Secondary is horrible. Personally I would like to see Jason Craft take Jason David's spot. At least he makes plays occasionally. Our offseason turned out to be a nightmare. FA and the Draft. Our whole draft class besides PT are roaming the sidelines passing out towels in street clothes.
