Great incentive for hosting playoffs in the dome
You guys have a brutal schedule to close out the year, I see no chance of the Saints being complacent. If Cam plays the way he did tonight, you guys are going to have a heck of a battle with them.

Re: How I think rest of Season will play out.

FYI to those interested in the tie-breaking scenario.

If the Saints would lose to Seattle and split with Carolina, and Carolina wins out, the tie breaker goes all the way to conference record, which would favor the Saints at 10-2 vs Carolina 9-3.

So Carolina pretty much has to sweep us to win the division.

Saints at 12-4 get the all important #2 seed.

I would rather talk x's and o's but I guess I will throw in my opinion. While I certainly wouldn't begrudge anybody the notion that The Saints can beat the Seahawks I will throw in a few tidbits.

1) This is the best Seahawks team I have ever seen including the 2005 Superbowl team in which we were screwed. That team had a better o line but that is it.
2) The Niner team you beat was one controversial play away from beating you on your home field. Their offense put up a staggering 6 points of drives not aided by turnovers and still came oh so close to a win. The same Niners team we beat 29-3 and 42-13 our last two games.
3) You guys are very borderline with injuries to your db's and we are as healthy as can be with a motivated and supremely talented Percy Harvin added to our offense. We won our games this year while missing 3/5 of our offensive line.
4)You couldn't beat us in Seattle with our worst team since Pete Carroll arrived here, what makes you think you can beat us with our best team? I think you guys are in for a rude awakening.

Here is to a great game in two weeks and if you guys win I will be back to face the music
Sure sure.... you know what? We will see you on the field of play.
Love how you beat the hapless Viqueens this weekend and suddenly you guys are so bold. As for head to head, how did it work out (AT HOME) almost losing to our weakest division opponent? Because all I've seen from your team is a lot of luck (Lambs, Sucs, Texans) and your team not as impressive week to week as you might think.

If you think Sean Payton and our team won't be ready for your Seahags, you're going to be in for a shock. Check history.... this team is known to AVENGE losses. So if you think beating us 3 years ago helps you today, then you seriously need help.

And another thing, we have a nice surprise for you - a keg full of whop azz from our defense, which is arguably better than our offense this season.

Anyway, glad you came and we will see you after the game as you claim.

And do you realize that the Saints team you beat that year was decimated by injuries? That team on that day was probably the worst team we'd fielded that entire season.

We had Julius Jones and Deshaun Wynn starting as our main RB's. We pulled both of them off of bar stools late in the season to stop the bleeding at RB.

You'll see a different Saints team next week.

But your team deserves respect. I think the top 4 teams in the league are Denver, New Orleans, Carolina and Seattle. I also think we'll play you guys twice this season.

Our game will be a great one. I can't wait for it. The fact that we have the Panties playing better only helps us. We may go undefeated the rest of the way. Please come back to face the music, because it's going to be a show!

Re: How I think rest of Season will play out.

To me there's not really much difference between the #1 and #2 seeds. It's the difference between #2 and #3 that matters to me, the extra game and the week's rest and the home field. I personally think we will end up no better than #2 behind Seattle, because Seattle's remaining schedule is a gift-wrapped tiptoe stroll through the sugar-coated cupcake garden. They will be this year's team to end up a puffed up 14-2 with an overblown sense of self-confidence, just like we've already seen from this thread.

Much different, Gregg Williams was never one to teach how to tackle either, which ended up being used against them greatly.

I agree, the only problem is for a Dome team is this puts the NFCCG in Seattle in late January.
Of course on that note the SB is early February in N.Y..
Both suck.

Ah, but that assumes that the Seahawks will win their games, to be able to host the championship. A lot can happen in the playoffs. Yes the Seahawks are very good at home, they have a VERY strong home field advantage. But if they're the #1 seed, before they get to host us, they will NOT be playing games against the Vikings, Titans or Jaguars at home, when they get to the playoffs.
