So we're the only 13 win 3-seed since the merger?

Yeah, ever I guess, historic

WHO_DAT_CAT 01-02-2012 10:32 PM

Yeah, how many of these teams were peaking at post-season, playing like they could read each others minds and mostly healthy?

Stats, hmmmm......I agree it will be an uphill slog. But, not due to historical data.

After Sunday's game, I hope I am right about mostly healthy though. At end of season, no matter what is reported by Payton, "healthy", must be a relative word.

Where stats make no sense...

But then, the caveat – road trip! The Saints have played four road playoff games in franchise history, and lost all four, and all three of their losses this year came on the road.
Ok... but EVERYONE wants to say the reason why our offense is SO GOOD is we play in a domed stadium right??

Well one of our loses came to St. Louis... in a DOME.

All I can say is WHATEVER. Until KC, we were the only team to scare the pants off of the Packers, in fact we were 4th down on their 1 and couldn't score to potentially tie the game.

MUMBO JUMBO.....

Well, its true, but there has never been a team like the Saints historically at 3rd seed. We are the strongest team to ever have that position. And to answer who had momentum the 1976 steelers, 2005 steelers and 2006 colts. 2 won the SB.

Another article written by another non-believer who would have ever thought that. And just think about what they wrote during the 2009 season and what they wrote since we have been the Saints. These clowns just want stop, well I guess we have to turn the non-believers in to believers again.

All this list tells me is that the Saints will be the third team on the list with (won Super Bowl) after their name.

In 2009 no team had ever lost their last 3 games and lost to the Buccs in a season to then end thier season with a Superbowl win. Well as we all know Saints put both those stupid stats to rest, looks like it's time for them to bury another

TheKillerBs 01-02-2012 11:13 PM

Those aren't really stats. They're more like "fun facts".
