NEW ORLEANS — Sometimes even Santa can’t deliver what you want. For residents of Who Datville, that means no Saints in the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

The Grinch stole whatever remote postseason opportunity existed at 3 p.m. Sunday, when Minnesota defeated Houston. That was about the time the Dallas Cowboys rallied with two late touchdowns to force overtime, during which Jimmy Graham’s hustling fumble recovery set up Garrett Hartley’s field goal that gave the Saints a 34-31 victory.

So there was one nice present for the Black & Gold Nation. But no more.

“No one with a white beard’s going to come down the chimney and hand us a divisional championship,” interim coach Joe Vitt said Monday.

Or even a wild-card berth.

But, Vitt emphasized, the Saints (7-8) have plenty to play for in Sunday’s finale against Carolina (6-9).

“We can’t look in the past,” he said. “But we can say to ourselves, ‘We have one more chance to get better’ because we won’t be playing football after this week.”

4-2 in the division would be nice too.

The kittens have benefited from the Saints resting players for the playoffs the last few years, so I am ready to see the Saints play the final game of the year with something on the line.

Re: Saints’ aim becomes 8-8 finish

I wouldn't have thought it at the beginning of the season, but after having lived it and under the circumstances, 8-8 is pretty darn respectable, IMO.
