Me either!
Look, I get what you are trying to say, to make yourself feel better. But let me ask you this -- have the Patriots been BLOWN OUT on the road, by anybody, this year? By anybody? Have they been embarrassed, been punched in the mouth, or been blatantly outcoached?

I'll answer that. They haven't lost a game by any more than 7 points and one of them was very close in overtime. They've been IN every single one of them, which means they are COMPETITIVE on the road. I hate to burst your bubble, but the Saints, there's just nothing intimidating or scary about them on the road, this year. They are very average on the road, very beatable, and teams are not afraid of them. For good reason.

I saw the game and they didnt try to run enough. Brees kept throwing where he shouldnt have. He takes too many chances and against a team like that he gets burned. You don't get big yards unless you are committed to the run. Our backs are not used to getting a large amount of carries. I was on the chat saying we needed to run the ball. And I know Jenkins was getting away with non calls and stuff but we should be used to this by now. We used to be good on the road in the reg season I don't know what happened to that.

What are you fairies smoking?

Or have you just been listening to the talking heads too much?

Those 3 wins two are against division rivals who we have pushed around for some time now. the other one was a road game against a team who's defense took a step back and it was week 5 not in the cold. And the bears do not possess the defense the rams or sehawks do atm. Nor is Cutler in Brady's league either.

But we lost all four road games against the two divisions we played between jets, pats, seahawks, and rams.

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.


If we sweep Carolina, I hope we don't play them in the playoffs. because if they were to knock off Seattle they would get the "hot" label and the one playing off of rematches and would give us a hard time even at home. I'm going to hope they lose in the wild card round. Then we'll need SF, Philadelphia, or Detroit to go to Seattle to win or we need to face our fears head on. Dallas is the truest lock to lose in Seattle.

If we get the 2 seed, Carolina (6 seed) would probably have to defeat the Bores in Chicago. We all know how tough that is.

Re: We need to win on the road

I'm sticking with my 11-5 season but I think we beat the Panthers on their field but I think that we play Tampa soft. My question is if we beat Carolina and lose to Tampa what would the seed order be?

Beat Carolina and we clinch the 2 seed. The Tampa game won't mean a thing.

We were just bad vs Seattle that Monday night, but I think it would be a much closer game if we played them again.

Besides the Seattle game, when we have played good teams on the road, we have played well. If we play a bad team on the road, we play bad.

I expect the Carolina game this week to be a pretty close one. I don't think we'll blow them out like we did at the Dome, but I still think we're very capable of winning.
Agreedů..Carolina will be close, but I see us righting the ship. Coach P's post game interview was scary. I think we'll be ready. You have to almost throw out the Seattle game, it's just a nasty, difficult task for any team to play well there, period. Throw out the flukes, like Rainys performance up there, give the chickens a chance to prepare w/ an off week and its as close to the 7th level of Hell as it gets.

And if the Saints were 7-0 on the road and 3-4 at home some of you would still be pissing and moaning!

The Saints don't get any style points, or extra draft picks if they win road games by 20+ points.

I thought the object of the exercise was to get into the playoffs! Considering how the Saints finished last year AND that we are perfect in the division, and one game from being .500 on the road, I am happier than a dog with 2 tails.

I am not saying that there aren't issues, but there are a lot of teams that would swap places with the Saints in a New York second if they could.

I am so mad about that loss by Detroit. Bears have already played us. I do not want to play them.
