While we were sleeping (bye week)...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The Pee-hawks' schedule the rest of the way is a combined 22-35. That is against STL twice, without a starting NFL QB. They lose no more than 2 the rest of the year and are walking into the playoffs 14-2 ...

The Pee-hawks' schedule the rest of the way is a combined 22-35. That is against STL twice, without a starting NFL QB. They lose no more than 2 the rest of the year and are walking into the playoffs 14-2 or 13-3 with home field advantage throughout. If they beat us, they wrap up home field Week 14-15 and tank the last one. Our D will shut them down, but we better have that running game cranking, 'cause the way it's looking is that we'll play them twice @ SEA before it's all said and done.

We're gonna have a rough time @ NYJ, SF in the Dome, @ SEA, @ ATL (yes, they are down but our battles are epic), and BOTH the CAR games. CAR gives us fits every year regardless of how bad they happen to be.

BTW, SEA's defense is good, but not as good as they're made out to be. IND put 34 on them. The rest? Scoring offenses of CAR (16th), SF (11th), JAX (32nd), HOU (29th), TEN (23rd), & AZ (25th). They ain't and won't play but one top tier offense the rest of the season.

Still way too much football left to be played by all teams to start the "what if" playoff scenarios.

Re: While we were sleeping (bye week)...

Wouldn't it be funny if we met the Colts again in the SB? Just dreamin'. When we pick Sam Bradford off, someone might pay attention to him as a tackle, unlike anyone did with Peyton ( other than Tracy Porter signaling his posse to move the big guy out of the way ). But, wow, tough Sunday for Peyton, no? The Colts are looking very good this year -- and the Broncos slightly less formidable.

Agreed. Really hope Daddy is in the situation room drawing up a plan that avoids that scenario.

Saints are 2nd in the NFC with .833 and 4th in the League.


Cushing broke his leg AND tore his LCL. he is done for the season.
You do know that divisional wins only comes into play for tie breaking purposes.
Overall record is what makes the playoffs.

Re: While we were sleeping (bye week)...

Lots of football left - and we control our own destiny for HFA - just have to win the games on our schedule.

Seattle is off this week, so a win over Buffalo puts us back even with them at 6-1.


But without someone jumping up and stealing one, the Seahawks only have two challenges left - us in their place followed by a trip to the 49ers. They are going to have to majorly screw up or have big injuries to finish worse than 13-3.

The 49ers schedule is not any better. They host the Seahawks and travel to our place. Other than that they will have to screw up to drop a game = 12-4 at the worst.

Yep I am..

Carolina is 3-3 and presently 8th (Overall Record) in the NFC with only 6 NFC teams going to the playoffs they are 1 win away from being tied with 4 other 4-3 teams except for the fact that even if Carolina were 4-3 which would put them in a tie with the other 4 teams they have zero divisional wins putting them out of the playoffs.

Carolina is no where near being the NFC South Champions and with out that title they are thrown into the Wild Card mix which they are not very close to being in either.
Look at Carolinas remaining schedule.. Do you think they have much of a chance (over 50%)?

6 Divisional games
49ers
Patriots
Dolphins
Jets
