Then Atlanta would win the division.

If the Falcons werent so far ahead at 8 wins to our 4, and Tampas 5.

I say the Falcons would slip, they still could go 1-7 the rest of the way, they havent really beaten anyone convincingly except SD and you got to believe the 2nd half of the season gets tougher.

they aren't going to go 1-7, 4-4 at worst I think.

Re: One Playoff Spot Available, Version 2.0

I would rather Atlanta win the division so we can knock their overrated arses out the first round! Anywho, i dont see why some of you think this is such a hard schedule. Watching too much ESPN maybe?

wk 11. @ Oakland- Ok so the only thing that worries me about this game is that we always get too confident and end up losing (ex. Kansas City) but the Saints have always fared well in Oakland and I just dont see how the Raiders defense will be able to stop Brees. Should be no problem.

wk 12. San francisco- The Saints remember very well what could have been last year. This will be a very heated match with a lot of emotions. And even if Alex Smith does play, this is not the same defense it was last year IMO. Dome will be rocking and Saints should win.

wk 13. @ Atlanta- This will be tough because the Saints will have maybe 2 days of full practice. BUT it is the Falcons and the saints will know what they're playing for (7-5). Besides, the Falcons have been noteably worst at home this year. And Who Dat fans always make it their home anyways . Saints win in a more defensive battle.

wk. 14. @Giants- Seriously? Have you seen the Giants lately? They have went from one of the best teams in the league to one of the worst. Eli hasn't thrown a touchdown pass in like 3 games. And Giants are probably the worst team in the league at home. Saints should have no problem.

wk. 15. Tampa Bay- We should have beaten them worse at their place. But, Kroom was very conservative with his play calling and it almost cost us in the end. Yes, their offense has gotten better but so has our defense. And their defense is the same. Plus, this ones at home.

wk. 16. @ Dallas- This one probably worries me the most because Dallas has such good pass rushers. But their secondary really isn't all that great. How many games have they won at home this year? Like 1? If Brees gets good protection from his line, I see no reason why the Cowboys will beat us.

wk. 17. Carolina- Should have beaten them at their place. But our defense will be much improved and the Saints will actually have something to play for (unlike Carolina). The Saints could still probably lose another game and make the playoffs but I just don't see this being that loss. Division game or not, something has happened to the Panthers and they will have a lot of questions to answer after this season. Saints should win this one easily and have some momentum going into the playoffs!

That's just my opinion. Take it or leave it!

Re: One Playoff Spot Available, Version 2.0

not out of the question to win out.

We did about this time last year.

What really does concern me though is the Atl game.

I dont know if Atl will show up in that game or not, its actually too far ahead atm.

40-whiners couldn't beat a weak Rams team yesterday.
Atl Probable loss- I am not sure what you are basing that on, but the Saints have beaten the Falcons the last 4 times they have played each other; I think it goes to 5.
Saints have beaten the Giants 3 straight times since 2006, including a road win when the Giants did not run a play on the Saints side of the field!!
Dallas possible loss-I don't see that happening
Carolina possible loss- The main reason the Saints lose to the kittens late in the season is because the Saints are resting players for the playoffs!

If the Saints stay healthy and the defense keeps improving, I see the Saints running the table to finish 11-5!!
I agree whodat, but also

SF (WIN), spag knows this team up and down and the rams defense always kept it close. Its one of the teams spags knows how to defend against.

@ATL (WIN) I think because they are now demoralized. Their players almost consider us unbeatable at this point. If we had lost the 1st game I would agree with you. But they knew with SP gone, and all the other things this was their best shot to beat us. I think we win this.

@NY (Win ) we have these guys number , like they have NE. They have no answer to our offense.

I see these as logical wins, added to what you said

Time to make the DOMENuts !!!!
