I Still Like Our Chances

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm not ready to give up yet. Here's why... We could have easily won the 49ers game, and I think they are probably the best team in the league right now. Yeah that second half was ugly but a couple ...

Re: I Still Like Our Chances

I'm not ready to give up yet. Here's why...

We could have easily won the 49ers game, and I think they are probably the best team in the league right now. Yeah that second half was ugly but a couple breaks (or some better officiating) and things could have gone the other way.

I'm liking what we're seeing from the Defensive Line. They're young, tough and starting to create some pressure. Our LBs are actually pretty good. I just don't understand why we've been so bad.

Streif will be back soon and that's going to help a lot. Our O-line is better than it's been given credit for. Our starters are all solid and both our guards are exceptional. Unfortunately our depth has been decimated.

I like Vitt. No, he's no Sean Payton but he is a pro and I think his confidence translates well to the team. The job isn't too big for him.

We have Jimmy, Lance, Tusk, Marques, PT, Sproles. And they don't.

Our QB is better than their QB.

Re: I Still Like Our Chances

We need to win nine in a row, and the ninth one is at home.

It's like in the movie "300" where wave after wave of weirdness and violence is coming at us, and we have to hack through them all, which is right where Drew Brees wants to be. He loves that movie, and this is exactly why. We're hacking through all the different waves of warriors, to get to Xerxes.

We need a couple of teams in front of us, to take care of their business and beat a couple of the people behind us, to do us a few favors. Then we rise up and murder them. And we need that fat coach at Tampa Bay to make a couple of stupid mistakes at Mile High or against the Rams, and sink his own ship, like we know he will. We need the Bears defense in December to play like the Bears defense in December. We need the 49ers to keep beating up on people, and we need Dallas to keep being the Dallas Cowboys, which so far they already are.

And that's really all we need, by way of outside help.

Plus, if we make it through the first eight to that ninth game, the odds of us winning that last one are suddenly like eleventy billion to one, in our favor, like no game ever before in history. It's in our house. Home. With our banners up there in the rafters and our Steve Gleason statue outside. So there's still plenty to fight for, and no reason to give up. Those dudes in Sparta sure didn't give up.

Re: I Still Like Our Chances

The cbs thing for Seattle is interesting but three of Seattle's last five are at home, thats not gonna stop them. The thing to look for now is Wilson putting the team on his back. Should Seattle drop two of next three, Carroll will pull Wilson and put Flynn in. In fact I think Wilson has to win this week or Flynn takes over. 49ers don't have enough on him either and Flynn could carry this team to the playoffs. Tampa Bay has to go 4-1 remaining. But the game in Atlanta last game should we win tonight will still be a meaningful game for Atlanta as they will need to seal HFA. I see bears at 12-4 and 49ers at either 12-3-1 or 11-4-1. So if our 7th loss were to be to TB, we would still possibly finish ahead of them if they lose in Atl. Redskins are the team I am most worried about as I am hoping they go 0-2 at home coming up. The browns game will be a challenge though as they can stop the pass and the redskins don't think much to run the ball when they should. If they did they could have beaten Carolina, Cincinatti and Atlanta. Thats Shanahan for you.
