Sorry, I'd love to jump aboard this train but you are asking a 3-5 road team that has never won a road playoff game to go 4-0 in the post season with all of them away from the Dome?

Really???

And where did we play that game? The point I am trying to make is this team for some reason CANNOT win on the road. In the playoffs they have NEVER won on the road including losing to a 8-8 Seattle team two years ago. If losing on the road was not in the teams head it is now for sure!

I think he's saying anything can happen in the NFL and the playoffs. We start 0-0.

I'm also a Saints FAN until the day I die, whether the team wins or loses. Was a Saints fan my entire life before the Superbowl, have been and will be my entire life after.

No doubt, I don't get to the board usually on game day and Wow, some of this is ridiculous.

Tough loss, but we are still heading to the post season and there is a relatively strong chance Atlanta can beat Carolina at home. The Rams game was a killer, but either support the team or jump off.

Thanks Halo, go Saints.

Anything CAN happen, but we lengthened any potential trip back to the Superbowl by 2 road games.

That's not true, the Saints have won on the road this year.
You're right we have not won a road playoff game yet.
The criticism of the Saints is NOT that they can't win on the road, rather that their performance on the road is not nearly as good as it is at home.

Sure we deserve the playoffs! It's not like we're the first NFL team to back their way into the postseason LOL

Re: Saints do not deserve the playoffs

And no team ever won the SB going into the playoffs on a 0-3 losing streak either.
Anything is possible.
