It's not over 'til it's over
By Jeff Merron
Page 2 staff


If you're a football fan, your favorite team may be the Redskins. Or the Giants. Maybe the Packers or 49ers. Perhaps the Bills. Possibly (you mensch, you) the Bengals.

At this point, you may be tempted to follow your fantasy team a lot more closely than your real team, figuring that a wild-card spot is but a distant hope, anything beyond that a Jennie Finch dream.

Time to give up? Not a chance. There are still seven games left, and just about anything can happen. These 10 teams tell the tale of great midseason turnarounds

Damn Billy, don\'t you know by now you can get arrested for posting positive propaganda on this site? When will you EVER learn?

Yeah, I know saintfan. You\'ve got to have some thick skin on here if you are a positive person. I just try to give the positive folks everywhere a little hope that it\'s ok to believe. It\'s ok not to give up. But, I do notice that even all the folks that wrote this team off a while back are talking playoff possibilities now. Go figure -- :P

DOUR TEAMS FOR TWO WILDCARDS...
DALLAS-9-7
NEW ORLEANS 9-7
SEATTLE 9-7
TAMPA BAY 9-7

If NO beats TB, and Dallas, we get in on tie-breakers.

DALLAS-9-7
NEW ORLEANS 9-7
SEATTLE 9-7
TAMPA BAY 9-7
Not to mention:

GREEN BAY 9-7 (easy schedule)
NY GIANTS 9-7 (they tend to finish strong)

I won\'t worry about SF and Washington. This one is going to go down to the wire, whether the Saints are in it until the end or not.

Everything seems to be lining up for the Saints. Here\'s how our cinderella story is unfolding.

1. Lose half of our defense at the beginning of the season.
2. Lose first 4 of 5 games.
3. Fan\'s start calling for Brooks and Haslett\'s head.
4. Beat a couple of nothing teams.
5. Get robbed out of the game with Carolina.
6 Beat the Super Bowl champs heading into the bye week with a great defensive effort.
7. Get most of our injuried players back.
8. Get new astro play turf. I think the old turf was what has been \"the curse\" for the Saints.
9. Get to beat up the falcons when we return from the bye week to have much confidence to make the stretch run.
10. Saints go on to win the Super Bowl and I spend weeks serving up the crow. -- :P

You know, I think you\'re right! There must have been a voodoo curse on that stuff. Come to think of it, Tulane has been disappointing too. You just gave me a reason to hope for the rest of the season. OK, not that I needed one, but it\'s nice to have one anyway. Thanks, Billy!

Read it and chuckled. We\'re supposed to feel better b/c a 1971 Canadian league team started off 3-4 and still made the playoffs. Woo-hoo. Billy\'s optimistic after reading this - why? b/c in the last 60 years, ten teams have started almost as bad as we did and they still made the playoffs. That puts our odds at about 10 in a trillion. Now I feel better! LMAO.
