How I think rest of Season will play out.

- Saints will win the division even if Carolina closes in.

- Saints will lose @ Seattle.

- Saints will probably finish at 11-5.

- Saints will split the Carolina games.

- Since the Saints will finish 11-5, I see them losing 3 more games, that is 1 to Carolina, 1 to Seattle, the other will be either at St Louis or home vs Tampa, reason we could drop one at home vs Tampa is resting starters once the #2 seed is locked up.

- Seattle will gain the #1 seed most likely with a 13-3 or even 14-2 record, but this is not the end of the world.


Why is it not the end of the world?....... Remember the game @ Seattle I say we will probably lose? I think come playoff time in the Divisional, we will beat whoever is there, lets face it, their is no one too impressive outside of Seattle/N.O. right now in the NFC, maybe even entire NFL. But we will go into Seattle in NFCCG and Win, its hard to beat an opponent twice in 1 season, call it dejavue for the 2010 season when we beat Seattle at home and lost to them on the road in the playoffs. Remember, Seattle is having some of those moments where they struggle vs some teams, remember Tampa Bay? They struggle vs any opponent in the playoffs like they did with TB and other teams like STL, those teams will take advantage of it and deal Seattle a big loss.

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

If we go 11-5, we could be looking at a wild card. Panthers can go 5-1 in division, we need them to lose to Miami, TB, or jets because I don't think they will lose to Atlanta.

I think after this win, if we can beat Atlanta on short rest(is this really even a q?) we should go 12-4. Yeah rams defense is suddenly back against the pass thats one to worry about but they have no SJax either and our secondary isnt our problems. That though is gonna be the tricky game. If we beat Seattle we should still go 12-4 I believe we will lose one of those road games. Thats good enough for 1 seed.

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

I think we can beat Seattle with the long week before, and then they have to play @SF which is a really hard place to win. Assuming we split with Carolina I could easily see both teams going 13-3 with us holding head-to-head and conference record tiebreakers over Seattle.

I said 13-3 before the season started, I still think it can happen. But that's looking a little bit ahead.

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

As Jack Vegas said, i think we both wind up 13-3.

We win all except @ Carolina

Seattle loses to us and 40-whiners

I dont trust Carolina to be dominant all the way through, but I can see them getting a WC.

Still a long shot, and we have 4 divisional games left which are always tough.

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

We are playing too good on both side of the ball to go 11-5.

I see Seattle dropping at least 2 away games. 49ers and the Giants are making their typical end of year push.

Saints vs Seattle in Seattle is a coin flip for me.

That puts us still in contention for HFA at the end of the season and we are resting no one... Partly due to injury we cant rest anyone.

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

You guys are hyping up carolina like they played. NE yet.. if they beat them then I'd worry. I think its possible we win out. Seattle hasn't really played anyone like us and seeing how we stopped gore I'm hype. Wishing that Greer wasn't hurt but next man up!

Carolina will drop at least 3 more games maybe 4. We may only lose 2 more if that many.

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

In the 2nd round a team like the 49ers or Carolina could take out the Seahawks, giving us the NFCCG in New Orleans. That is assuming we get the 2 seed and win our div round game.
