10-6 or wishful thinking?

Can the Saints clean it up enough to finish out 10-6, or would we all just be kidding ourselves?

Looking at the final games the only ones that should be questionable to outright "gonna lose" are Denver and KC (both winnable in my opinion).

Thoughts....?




By the way, Venturi Sucks.

Any record that keeps Haslett but does not include a Superbowl win is a bad one to me. Just MHO.

10-6 was pushing it from the beginning. Now that we\'ve seen how bad they can be, there\'s gonna have to be some real improvement for this team to get there now.

5-11 seems more realistic. If we really improve dramatically then we beat Atlanta twice and get to 8-8. I figure we can be counted on to lose 2-3 of the division games that we should win against weaker teams. (playing down to the competition and all)

I mean, Honestly!
This is basically the same team and for sure the same staff we have seen for 4 years.
No locker room \"Cancers\" yet.
NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!
If I am wrong I will be the happiest fan on the planet.
But again, Honestly!!!

More than anything, I hope the Saints just show up to play. I\'d be happy not winning another game if that\'s what they do.

Show up.

But, as usual, that won\'t happen very often.

SD - Win
KC - Loss
De - Win
At - Win
Ca - Win
Da - Win
TB - Win
At - Win
Ca - Win

Final Tally - 11/5

Damn, what am I, stupid? there\'s 3 more losses in there somewhere. But Saints v38.0 is going to crash unexpectedly. Maybe we can get Bill Gates to buy the team. He\'s used to putting out buggy product.

Xan, your 3 losses you missed:

1. San Diego. Have you watched them play this year?? They\'ll do what Seattle did to us but surprise us with it like Arizona did. LT is going to have a field day on our non-existent run D. Maybe 220 yards, 2 TDs. Watch out for the Chargers, they look like an if team, that could end up winning the West or crumbling....hmm...sounds like the Saints most years.

2. ATL. I think we at the most split with them, although they are the one team i wish we beat always. I HATE THEM!!!!! They\'re not as good as their record....but then again, maybe neither are we.

3. DAL. Yup! Vinny Testaverde/Hanson/anybody they put in looks like a QB God and somehow finds a way to have the best game a 40 something QB/ rookie ever had.

I think there is one more loss on top of all those in there if things remain the same woth our beloved Saints. Crazier things have happened, and i pray i have to eat my words. i truly do. But guys, you are trying to predict a winning season for a team that has played the way it did the first 7 games??? Are you serious?

If we stop the false starts, our receivers catch easy passes, and our D-line/LBs show up and stop at least some runs....we could easily go 7-2, 6-3. But as things look right now, and the way the team is playing I would say 5-11, 6-10.
