Someone posted early in the season that HazHadits theory for this year was to start with the collapse and end up with a bang.
You should have posted this when the Saints were 1-4 and added: \"The collapse part worked. Great job!\" Ah yes, sarcasm.
Every year there\'s one team that makes it into the play-offs by luck. This year this team seems to be the Panthers. 3 OT-wins in away games - maybe instead of practicing the whole team was send out during training camp to collect Lucky Four Leaf Clovers.
I\'m waiting for the bang.

WhoDat and Clone don\'t believe we can catch Carolina. But, I do. That\'s what I\'m hoping for and I don\'t think it\'s out of the question. I think Carolina will go 3-5 the rest of the way.
Famous last words.

OK, so some of us want Carolina to beat TB this week. I say, so what? There\'s no way that\'s going to happen. I\'m not a betting man, but if I were, I\'d be putting it all on the Bucs not just to win, but to dominate this game. They are having problems this year, but they still think like the champions they are (until January). They will be pumped for this game for a couple of reasons. First, they are desperate not to fall below .500. Second, they want revenge for the game they should have won against the Panthers earlier this year (remember the blocked extra point as time was running out that sent it into overtime?). I don\'t think you\'ll see the Bucs giving up 6 turnovers this Sunday.

Not only will TB bring their \'A\' game to Carolina, they are a better team to begin with, and that\'s a hard combination to beat. So whatever playoff scenario you are hoping for, you might as well assume the Saints will be 2 games out of first after Sunday (three if you include the tie breaker), and one game behind Tampa in the wild card hunt.

Incidentally, I\'d rather see the Eagles win than the Packers. I think nocloning is right that they will win their division, meaning they won\'t be competing with us for a playoff spot. Of course, we\'ll still need to beat them when the time comes, but I\'d rather count on Dallas to lose 5 games than count on Philly to lose 4 at this point.

So Tampa is not a better team than the Saints, and they weren\'t concerned about the two games we took from then last year? They didn\'t have \"something to prove\" last Sunday? In the NFL, you get up for every game. The way Tampa\'s run D has been playing Stephen Davis could run all over them.

PS - Aaron Brooks sucks, Jake is better!!!!


tee hee hee - I just want to get things churnin\' again. (insert Joe cringing here)... (insert Saintfan writing this one down and using it in a month when I compliment Brooks for a great game to show that I\'m really up to something and not to be believed).

Naw, I don\'t take notes like I probalby should Whodat.

Lemme say I agree with rich006 regarding the Panthers Bucs game Sunday. I don\'t think there\'s any way in hell Carolina beats the Bucs again. They had no business winning the first game really, and for that matter they\'ve won a number of games this year they had no business winning. Sure, it says something about the character of their team, but it says more than that. It reaks of getting lucky...really lucky...and that type of thing eventually evens itself out. That luck was with \'em two weeks ago in New Orleans when they won (or were given) the game against the Saints. That luck ( or specific favors from the officials) wasn\'t there last week, and the lowly Texas beat \'em even tho they ran the ball as good as they have all season...see what I mean?

I had completely forgoten about Atlanta as bad as they are playing right now. It sure would be sweet to see them help us out for once, but knowing the damn Falcons they might lose the rest of there divison games just to spite us.

Knowing the falcons, they\'ll upset us at home and lose the rest of their games.

They have a history littered with upsets over us. This game scares me more than Tampa.
