2nd seed now a possibility for the Saints?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; My opinion is that the 49ers aren't that good. They are a beneficiary of a weak schedule. They only played 3 decent teams and that's counting a sliding Giants team. The other 2 are the Ravens and Cowboys in which ...

My feeling also - We have the ability to win the last 6 & it would be great...

Gotta stay positive:
1- they lose two more, we win out -> we get the 2
2- we get the 3, win at home, and then go to SF and win. Busting with confidence, we do NOT lose on the last play of the game, and we head to Indy

If we win the next 6; then we gotta win 9.

Just when you think you know this team, you find out that one of your key DB's thinks like a thug.

In the '09-'10 season we won our first 13 games before being defeated by the Cowboys. We went on to win the Superbowl.

Who are we missing from our Superbowl squad that is a net LOSS? ...? Exactly, we are a stronger team TODAY than we were as World Champions. That's just my humble, novice opinion.

Can we do this? Sure. Am I confident? Absolutely.

Can we blow this? Sure. Am I worried about that? Absolutely.

If we remember what got us to a Championship, we can repeat as Champions. Lets just hope the G.W. and Payton have good memories.

HERE WE COME, TA GE' CHU!!!!

I agree. I've been watching their schedule. IT is kinda weak overall.

So who are the two (2) losses on the remaining schedule?

Dec. 04 vs Rams

Dec. 11 @ Cardinals

Dec. 19 (MNF) vs Steelers

Dec. 24 @ Seattle

Jan. 01 @ Rams
Probable Losses by the 49ers are Steelers and @Seahawks (who've been pretty good this year and have a stout run defense.

The Rams are a rival (like the ones we have) so both of those won't be pushovers either; and the Rams did beat us...

I disagree. You are underestimating the 49ers. I believe they are legit, in spite of the loss to Baltimore.

Man, would it be fun to play the 9ers in the divisional round at Candlestick, and beat them! But. lets not get ahead of ourselves. The Saints still have to secure the #3 seed... and that's not going to be easy. Beating the Giants Monday night would help a lot, but I am still skittish about that game, since the Giants absolutely have to win that game in order to have any realistic chance of making the playoffs.

I agree we need the Niners to loss two NFC games and their remaining schedule is week with that said the Saints just play whodat ball for the remainder and let the chips fall where they may
