Was that the same guy who said the Falcons we're playoff bound? We've proved the analyst wrong so far.

Re: NFL.com analyst says no playoffs

I'm not convinced this is him being a delusional hater, however I'd happily take a bet against him! Have you seen the Panthers remaining schedule for a start? Good lord! Falcons twice, Saints twice and Patriots make up 5 of 9! Not easy at all.

In fairness he is right that our O-line is really not all that smart right now, but if you play to a 6-1 record with an O-line that needs work, you are unlikely to miss the playoffs!

Re: NFL.com analyst says no playoffs

It's kind of funny how our team has so many haters in the media. And make no mistake, that is nothing but a hater. For whatever reason, there are always a number of people who desperately want the Saints to fall flat on their faces.

And that's not because of bounty nonsense either, it was this way well before any of that happened.

Re: NFL.com analyst says no playoffs

All about Ian Rapoport and his picks:
Cowboys, Chicago Bears, Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers;
Wild Cards: Packers, Seattle Seahawks.

The guy is believing that
Carolina will do better overall in common games than the Saints - the 2 games between the 2 teams stick out
and then
Saints losing to Seahawks.

His prediction becomes seriously unstuck when the Saints win 1 or more of these 3 games.

Basically he has a serious fixation about the Saints (negatively) and about the 49ers, Carolina, and Chicago (absurdly).

I reckon we don't have to worry about him after week 14.

Re: NFL.com analyst says no playoffs

We'll lose one game by seasons end ... But we will embarrass Seattle ... The 2nd comes to whomever we seem worthy of a late bye week preparing for the playoffs ...

Seriously ... Were 6-1 and the 1 came at the last second , HOF Tom Brady at his best with the refs on his side and Sean Payton having a bad day...

If that's what it takes for us to lose , I don't see us losing many more games ... Add In we're getting healthy again on d , stills is blossoming in front of our own two.

We won't play a better QB than what we have all season perhaps until the Super Bowl. Match that with a 4th ranked scoring defense , you'll be at least in a few more superbowls

You Can't Say Impossible without first saying Im Possible ...
