Re: We need to win on the road

It's not just that the Saints "can't win on the road" (although right now it seems they can't). It's that THIS YEAR, the Saints aren't even scary or intimidating on the road -- absolutely no one is afraid to have them come into their house. They're averaging 18 ppg on the road, which is pretty mediocre, and that probably went down last night. Even the most average team (the Rams, Jets) can usually score more than 18 points at home. For a good playoff caliber team, it's a chance to feast. Not good.

Re: We need to win on the road

I really don't get it. How in the world is there SUCH a disparity between this team at home and on the road? I understand Home Field Advantage but we are just pathetic away from the dome. I don't get it.

The old formula of "win at home, split on the road" should be enough to win your division. We had a great chance at that but blew it by losing to bad teams on the road, namely the Jets and Rams. And we haven't just lost, we've looked AWFUL.

We can still do it with a win over the Panthers but if we can't beat the freaking Rams on the road a week after they lost by, what, 30 points or something? I don't like our chances.

Guilty as charged, well except the smoking fairy part.

I've heard numerous times that great teams strive to win their home games and split on the road.

We're exactly on pace for that.

Re: We need to win on the road

For 31 teams 8 & 0 at home and 4 & 4 on the road is a great year, but if its the Saints its a bad year. wth We have been in 1st place in our division since week 1, I am looking forward to them remaining there in 6 days and finishing 12-4.

Re: We need to win on the road

There is such a huge difference in this team on the road, and two of those road losses have been beat downs. That is why the road losses get blown up into this "can't win on the road" belief.
Dropping out of the #2 seed will be aweful because then they will all be on the road. The Carolina game has just become the biggest of the season, a lot like the seattle game was, let's hope we play better this time.

Look, I hope I am wrong, I hung my head and held back the tears, we are not a playoff caliber team.

I can't fight this feeling anymore.
I won't say it out loud for the fear it maybe the truth.

When your diehards start to question and feel abandoned...where do you find the courage to start to believe again.

This weekend was a sucker punch in the gut.

C'mon people! The Saints stunk up the joint a couple games! It's not like we haven't seem them do it before.

We WILL win out, beat whatever team has the misfortune of having to play us in the Thunderdome and then go pluck a bird!!
