The issues the saints are experiencing isnt something you want to take on the road in the playoffs you want to be playing like the arizona cardinals going into the playoffs! not like the tampa bay bucs! imjs
Seattle is dominant at home record wise, but they played, hands down, their best game of the year against us (Arizona just showed they are beatable with the mediocre Palmer offense). The Rams have matched up well against us for the last few years and had probably their best performance against us. Most of our road losses have involved some real bad luck. I just don't think this trend will continue and if the Saints can just get this whole "road" issue off their backs with one good showing on the road, I think they can make run at the right time. The Saints have their issues on both sides of the ball, and some are significant, but so does every other team in the NFC. I just like our chances in every scenario I can think of if the saints play smart football. IMO.

5th seed still gives us a realistic chance to host the NFCCG in New Orleans

LOL... my guess is that Arthur Blank gives him one more year to get it together.

Did you see Blank on the sidelines fuming? Probably counting the season ticket holders that won't renew. Lol.

Really enjoying your optimism, MG. I agree with almost everything here except the part about Seattle having issues on both sides of the ball. They have some issues on offense. Their defense is scary.

I agree. Their problem this year wasn't coaching.

It was entering the season with huge holes on the O-line, secondary, and pass rush.

I hate to say this but they're about 3 solid additions from being a 10+ win team again. OT, OLB/DE, and DB.

If Blank is furious its with their GM, that Tommy Smirnoff dude.

no doubt #1- Smith is the same mediocre coach as in years past, but their genius GM is the one who is responsible for this year's personnel

no doubt #2- they will have an easier schedule next year and easily win 9 games
