NFC Playoff worries

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think we should have realistic expectations. Not every game is going to be played inside the Superdome....

Of all the playoff contenders, here's a list of teams I wouldn't mind get knocked out before we play them. Ain't skeered of any of them, just my personal preferences.

1. San Fran - Yeah, we beat them already but they're the kind of team that would give us fits even in the dome.

2. Carolina- Division foes with a good defense are always serious threats. Defenses travel well.

3. Arizona - Its one of those teams coming on strong, good defense with an improving offense. They are trending upward.

4. Philly - Coming on strong with an unconventional offense, which typically give us fits. The unknown factor bothers me about them.

Teams I'd rather play in the 2nd round
Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, Green Bay
LOL there arent many left besides these

That is not fair at all. SaintsBro is making sense. Saying that SEA is a good team and it will be very difficult for our team this year to beat them is -- wait for it ------- THE TRUTH.

Re: NFC Playoff worries

At home, we always play exceptional.

On the road, we play up/down to our competition.
Winning @Chi and @NE (where we should've won) prove we can play well on the road.
We dropped an egg vs Seattle, not even going to lie. Although I think if we played them again it would not be a blowout.

I think we stand a good chance to potentially go deep in the playoffs because *usually* we play well on the road if our opponent is also a good team.

Apparently, so, which I've just learned from you.

#1 Don't be rude to your fellow fans.

I have a new rule:

#2 Don't tell a fellow fan that they are a bandwagon jumper when their argument is logical.

Arguing and calling them a *****(but bypassing the profanity filter) like you did, is two very different things...

Mitch, go get a beer man, this loss and SaintsBro's speaking reasonably about Seattle and our team right now, is getting to you.

Oh, and using the eyeroll thing is kinda rude.
