So is the season still over from some...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; we're 2-5, when we hit 7 losses I think its officially over. If we can win 4 of our next 5 we'll be at 6-6. Thats when I'll start believing we have a realistic shot at that 6 seed....

17..... that is a number that is relevant right now.

17 teams in the NFL are less than .500 and have losing records, 8 of those are NFC....

Div champs is gone, there is no way Atlanta drops many, if any of their final 9 games.. Of their final 9 games 1 has a winning record, 1 is .500 and the rest have losing records. Even if we pop Atlanta twice the best we can hope for is a Wild Card.

Yep, we're only 3 games behind the wildcard leaders. It'll take one of our 8-1 runs to make it, and hope the teams above us beat each other up. They all play each other several more times.

I think 10-6 gets us in. 9-7 might but will require some bizarre tie-breakers.

While I certainly hope for it to be different I still see 3-4 losses unless our defense miraculously improves. Does anyone realistically think we go 7-2 or better on our remaining schedule with the defense we are fielding? I don't see it. I will cheer my heart out but I have to be skeptical about it and try to look beyond the fanatic and view it objectively.

The writing is clearly on the wall. We need to win Monday and continue to improve. We likely won't make it but we can still lose and get in so no reason to stop fighting until we get eliminated.

Is the season over? No way. It's only week 8 of a 17 game schedule.

We're going to turn things around against Philly this week. Drew has had some of his best games on prime time T.V. and if there's any team this defense can get a turn over from, it's the Eagles. When was the last time this offense had two bad games in a row? And then they're gonna spank some falcon butt cause that's what the falcons are for that's what they're best at. And then they'll beat the Raiders cause the Raiders suck.... and so on...
