Remaining Schedule

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't get why everyone thinks the pats are such an awful team. They're 6-2 (only one game behind the all-mighty Broncos, lol) and still have a top 5 all time qb under centre...yeah they don't Welker or Hernandez but ...

*To clarify, by saying "us as his receiving corps" I am referring to B&G posters.

Re: Remaining Schedule

Here's the big problem I see: Kaepernick, Newton (2x), Wilson.

Geno didn't do crap against us through the air but the Jets gashed us on the ground and Geno ran one in for a TD. We sucked against mobile QBs last year and we lost to the one we faced this year. I think we'll be darn lucky to win one of those four.

Go ahead, beat me up, or, at least give me reason to hope I'm wrong.

Re: Remaining Schedule

Before yesterday, I had 13-3. Now... torn between 11-5 and 10-6.

I say we drop SF and SEA. I think we drop one to CAR and one more to someone else. After yesterday, I think anything could happen really. Depends alot on health of our players -- and the health of our opponents.

Everything staying the same with health -- I say 11-5 or 10-6.

Are we a wild card at 10-6?

Besides Geno's one scamper he didn't do sh*t on the ground against us either, mind you he didn't have to cause Ivory had a monster day.
Still, I stand by my statement and I'll add that we can stop the run when we scheme for it properly...case in point, we kept Matt Forte in check and that dude just ran for 125 yards against the Packers (that Packers d-line aint a bunch of pushovers either).
San Fran will be our hardest game at home and Seattle will be tough on the road, but given that the Hawks' o-line is in such rough shape right now, I honestly don't know what to think of them. Just go game by game I guess, if you wanna go down the doom and gloom path go ahead, I can't stop you, just like you can't stop me from saying I have faith that we can adjust our scheme and get the right players on the field to shut down pretenders like Newton.

Re: Remaining Schedule

I thought Rex had there run scemed well.He used the agressive defensive line to his advantage. He knows our defense so will know how to expose it.

That means 5-3 the rest of the way. Obviously we'll have to play better than we did Sunday.

3-1 at home
2-2 on the road
Yes you did I remember the post, and at the half way point I'm on board with 11-5 - possibly 12-4.

Our two losses are AFC losses and frankly I think the JETS game was the egg we were going to lay eventually anyway. I don't see us playing that poorly again.

Re: Remaining Schedule

11-5.

Road playoff team.

Health is key but not more important that Sean calling a good playoff game as HC.

That would mean the Panthers would liekly have to beat us twice and go 6-2 against...
@San Fran
New England
@Miami
Tampa Bay
@New Orleans
New York
New Orleans
@Atlanta

And we'd have to lose to the Panthers twice and one more somewhere else.

Re: Remaining Schedule

Something else I want to add, the Jets didn't beat us with their ground game alone, we had to make about a million mistakes for them to steal a win from us in their house. Not just the Toon dropsies, but Meachem missed some easy catches and Graham had a key drop, plus that horrible holding call when Toon finally made a big catch on that last drive. It wasn't that we were exposed as some team that haemorrhages points and yards, we just proved that anything can happen on any given Sunday....so get off the ledge!
