Re: A scenario where we could still make the playoffs.

Here's a vote for low expectations. How about only 4 interceptions this week?

I'll be happy if the defense gives up under 450 yards!

It would be nice to at least make the Giants work a little harder for their pick 6's. Not throw it to them from our own 20. That would be a step in the right direction.

That's where I'm at ... without a H/C and after all the turmoil, the Saints have managed to compile a better W/L then 30% of the league and would be in last place in NONE of the divisions ... hell, they'd be in second place in the AFC East (tied) & West! I look at teams like the Cardinals, Panthers, Lions, Eagles, Raiders, Chiefs, Chargers, Titans, Chiefs, Jaguars & wonder WTF is wrong with them that they can't even compile a better W/L record than a team without a H/C.

It ain't over 'til it's over, I'm gonna' sit back & enjoy the ride ... .

Re: A scenario where we could still make the playoffs.

If we make it, I think it happens like this:

2012 NFL Playoff Machine - Simulate Matchups and Scenarios - ESPN


We need the following to happen somehow...

1) Rams - Lose any 1 game - @ BUF, MIN, @TB, @SEA

2) Vikings - Lose any 1 game - CHI, @STL, @HOU, GB

3) Bucs - Lose to Saints ONLY - PHI, @NO, STL, ATL

4) Cowboys - Lose to Saints and NY Giants win NFC East or Lose to Saints + one other game - @ CIN, PIT, @NO, @WAS

5) Redskins - ANY TWO losses - BAL, @CLE, @PHI, DAL

6A) Seahawks - 3 losses or 2 NFC losses - ARI, @BUF, SF, STL

OR

6B) Bears - Lose 3 games - @MIN, GB, @ARI, @DET

Re: A scenario where we could still make the playoffs.

Going by the mantra of one week at a time, the big games this week will be NOvsNYG of course, SEAvsARI really need the Cards to step up and win this one, CHIvsMIN will be pulling for the Vikes!, WASvsBAL go RAVENS!!! I just trew up a little, CINvsDAL win one for the Ginger! This is going to be a fun filled football weekend. Also, Go ARMY beat NAVY!

Re: A scenario where we could still make the playoffs.

I think we absolutely can win out but I still don't think that will be enough to make the playoffs. With the tiebreakers, Seattle is going to be very difficult to catch with 3 of their final 4 games at home and a soft schedule. I actually think we have a better chance that Chicago loses 3 games. Either way it starts this week with the Giants. Living in NY this is a game I circled on my calender, would love to have bragging rights with my friends.

Re: A scenario where we could still make the playoffs.

For us to make the playoffs, we have to win out and get really lucky. Our franchise is a lot of things, but lucky isn't one of them. I am going with no.

Settled today with 52 emphatic NOs...

180 minutes of football left to watch until 2013 preseason...
