Is a 7-9 team REALLY going to make the playoffs?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I didn't see anything out of the Lambs or the SeaChickens that impressed me. I think we win this one without much problem. The problem is how tired will the team be coming back from the West coast......

I don't think the Seahawks are ranked very high as far as rushing attack but they looked decent tonight. Hopefully we can keep those RBs in check.

Fyi the Seahawks have an all-time record of 51-26 at Qwest Field, including 4-1 in the playoffs, and 5-3 during the 2010 regular season.

So even though they typically played poorly on the road this year (with a couple of notable exceptions), and I do agree that the Saints probably ought to win this one, I wouldn't take the game for granted if I were you guys. At home it's a whole different ball of wax.

It's a tough venue to play in for opponents.

So it must have been a really tough venue for the Giants to win 41-7, or the Chiefs to win 42-24, or the Falcons to win 34-18, against that scary 12th man of yours, huh? Seems like the actual playoff caliber teams that played in your building had a really hard time getting any points on the board out there.

I don't care what there home record is we lose what once or twice this year on the road i give respect to any team but this may be a blessing to play the Seahawks and win a game we should win by at least two TD's and build our respect back around this league and then go to Chi-town and beat a really good team and go from there but we can't take this team lightly go up there and handle our business.GO SAINTS

Seeing a 7-9 team in the playoffs is embarrassing ... losing to a 7-9 team in the playoffs would be humiliating.

I think the Saints should adopt your attitude, scoff at the Seahawks as serious competition at Qwest, and immediately begin thinking about the Divisional Playoff Weekend next weekend because that's what's really important.

Sounds like a good recipe to me!

It is the only attitude you CAN have, when you are signing guys on the way to the airport as your new running backs.....

I assure you no one is thinking about the divisional round. I am only thinking about three non-NFC West teams that spring to my mind, with winning records, who did not seem to have very much trouble scoring points out there at Qwest, some of whom have offenses that aren't even as efficient as the Saints. That is all. Not overlooking anything.
