We are still not officially eliminated regardless of Dallas' win today. See the excerpt below from this article Brees leads Saints over Bucs, 41-0 - Yahoo! Sports

The Saints will still be alive for a playoff berth when they kick off at Dallas next Sunday, but will have to finish in a multi-team tie at 8-8, which would require several other teams to lose their last two games. While the Bucs could finish 8-8, their conference record would be 5-7, dooming them to lose all possible tiebreakers.

Re: **NO HATERS, please** Saints still alive (...but barely)

I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that we aren't making the playoffs, even if we are mathematically alive, its a huge longshot. That being said, I do want to see our team play well down the stretch. I want us to win out and and at least finish 8-8. I think defensively we're making progress and young players are stepping up. Win out and give Sean & co. something to build on for next year.

I'm not holding my breath. It is possible for the giants to lose out(ravens lost to broncos and at home again to try to clinch their division). But cards blew out lions, which means likely they'll be caught off guard by the bears. Vikings could lose to Houston but who knows, and would GB really help us out by sweeping vikes to get a bye?

Its all too complicated, we should have beat SF or not kick that fg on 4th and 1 against the giants. It was those games that hurt our season.

Well, being a Lions fan all my life and aware of the Saints history since entering the league, I'm pretty familiar with the drill.

If someone says there's a chance, then there's a chance and it ain't over until the last minute of the last game of the regular season.

Of course, I'm gonna' let someone else do my stressing for me and just enjoy the rest of the season without worrying about playoffs or winning it all ... and be pleasantly surprised if we do, .

At this point..... And for the rest of the season, we have not EARNED a playoff spot.

Even if by .00005 we fall into a playoff spot, we didn't earn it, and we have not played well enough at any point in this season to give me reason to believe we have at least a 50/50 shot at winning a playoff game. Which would make us merely a stepping stone, a catapult if you will , for some other team.

So.... Why in the hell do you want to get into the playoffs? Glutton for punishment? You can't be a fan of the Saints because they will not make it to the post season?

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Did somebody make you angry at work recently? Geez dude, if you wanna say there's no chance then say it. But why be so harsh on people who want to have something to talk about? And by the way, that is the aswer to your question of why do we want to make the playoffs. As long as we're mathematically alive, why not talk about it? The draft is a long way away.

I'm not saying it's realistic to think we'll make it. I personally declared the season over after last week. But it just so happens that we are still alive enough to have something to talk about.

Hypothetically speaking, if we were to make the playoffs, why do you say you've seen nothing to tell you we could win a game? We just won 41-0. We also beat the current top seed in the NFC, and if not for Drew gift wrapping the other game for Atlanta, we would have swept them. It's a Jekyll and Hyde team, but when we're on we can beat anyone.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
