Peaking at the right time.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I honestly believe we are hitting our second wind at the right time considering we have faced the gauntlet of game outcome scenarios and conditions (except OT). Blowouts, a real beat down, close games, come from behind games, hostile environments ...

Peaking at the right time.

I honestly believe we are hitting our second wind at the right time considering we have faced the gauntlet of game outcome scenarios and conditions (except OT). Blowouts, a real beat down, close games, come from behind games, hostile environments ...you really need that IMO to be a SB contender or experience with it and we do. Some of these other PO caliber teams I just don't see it.

Getting crushed in Seattle could turn out to be the best thing that happened this season as far as facing adversity. If we play in that stadium again, (the deity upstairs willing) the 12th turd will be less of a factor.

Other than Dallas, what other beat downs have we put on any team this year? What other come from behind games? Only 1 ( SF ) and that was marginal because the score was never that far apart. The games that we have gotten behind in this year -- we have lost. Hostile environments? The only hostile environment that we have been in and won is Chicago. I wouldn't call ATL or Tampa hostile environments ( we have to play there every year and the Who Dats are there in-force ).

I'm not trying to rain on your SB parade, man, but come on. How do you figure that if we play in SEA again the 12th man will suddenly be neutralized?

And, please don't call me out for not being a fan -- because NOTHING would make me happier than if you were right. But, seriously, I don't get your logic.

Commit to improving in 2015 = not embarrassing yourself.

I can relate to what you say but I think if we do get to play Seattle again and I believe we will, our x factor so to speak is Sean Payton, we got embarrasses in Seattle, Payton will not get blown out again, the expressions on his face during that game said it all, we will go in there a totally different team he will make sure of that himself he does not like being humiliated like that and will be out to return the favor. As far as being a good road team, well we will have to be is all I can see if we want to win!! Have faith!! To take the 12th man out we just have to put a southern a$$ whoopin' on Seattle, Saints style. Have faith you'll see!!

Seattle is not undefeated. If they can lose in the regular season, they can lose in the divisional round too.
