Re: Now the $64K question

I'm copying my post from another thread because it's appropriate here.

We all know that if the Saints of Weeks 13-16 show up in the playoffs, we are doomed. We need the Saints of Weeks 1-12. And I believe we can get back there. While I do think that a win over Carolina will greatly help them get back into it, I think it may not be absolutely necessary. Beating the Panthers will do a few things. 1) clinch HFA regardless of what the Vikings do. 2) Get the players mentally ready because a) they'll have beaten a team that was getting hot down the stretch, thus improving their confidence that they CAN still win games when they need to, and b) they'll know that they'll have the Who Dat Nation behind them throughout the playoffs, which we all know is stacking the deck when the Saints are on their game. and 3) show the rest of the league that we're still a force to be reckoned with.

Anyway, regardless of the outcome of next week, the Saints will use the bye week to mentally and physically prepare themselves for the final stretch. (If they lose to the Panthers, SP and GW will likely set the grass at the practice field on fire and tell the offense and defense to go at it.) With the rest of our big playmakers coming back into the lineup, I think the team can come out in the Divisional round and prove why they are the #1 team in the NFC.

*deep breaths.* Okay. I'm done. Sorry that got hard to follow in a few places.

Saints fan since he watched them play from his crib.

Re: Now the $64K question

Make the defense play until they can demonstrate they can tackle anything other than field turf.

Re: Now the $64K question

I'm from new orleans and have been a die hard fan all my life I live in louisville ky now and I'm prolly the only saints fan so I enjoy rubbing the victories in but I really want the superbowl more than anything I've already bot plane tickets to come back home and party in the big easy so whatever they do for the last game wouldn't bother me just get to the big game

I'd treat it like the 2nd preseason game.

Re: Now the $64K question

I said after the pro-bowl when Drew got hurt that I never wanted to see him in a meaningless game ever again.
