Possibly the first team to wrap up their division.

I'm more excited about getting Ellis, Porter and Greer back and in game shape for the playoffs.

Clinch what? Your girlfriend?

Seriously. Get healthy, then talk playoffs

The division.
No you are wrong- we are close to clinching the division, and that is the first step

Getting health is beyond important, but that is not in anyone's control. Who is talking playoff's? I said clinch the division.

Sorry, but this is not premature. We are possibly 1-2 weeks away from cinching- it is a perfectly legitimate topic, and is very important.

Further-I am enjoying the ride. I am not going to sit here and worry the whole season long. This is an important first step, and it is exciting. How do you talk about getting healthy.

Let me try- Hey sure hope we get some guys back soon. That would probably help, ya know, if we could get some guys back soon.

How many different ways can I keep saying that xan? Seriously, I am worried about getting healthy, but it isn't all I am going to talk about. Enjoy the season man- it might end special

Re: Will Saints be first to clinch?

Yep, with Atlanta and Carolina now completely out it, the Saints should be able to clinch a playoff spot and a division title shortly. One win should be a lock for the playoffs, one more win and an Atlanta loss would clinch the division, or just two more wins period and it's locked.

The Saints are actually in a good position to not let down over the last part of the season. With the Vikings playing like they are, it means every week will still count for something, with home field advantage being played for.

Re: Will Saints be first to clinch?

I think next week is the only game we have to worry about. Atlanta is starting to fall apart, Dallas is starting their usual slide, Washington has no chance, we proved today that the Bucs aren't even in our league, and we can beat Carolina if we play our starters. Which we will if we're 15-0.
