Saints will take division lead over next 3 weeks

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Definitely want them to go to the playoffs, no matter what kind of shape they're in. Need more banners up in the rafters of the Dome. Then you can point to them when you're sitting next to Falcons fans....

Re: Saints will take division lead over next 3 weeks

You take what comes your way. In some ways the entire season is a playoff. Last year we were 5-1 at the bye week and the mood was very depressing because it appeared we needed home field advantage in the playoffs, and at 5-1 it was hard chasing the Seahawks, 49ers and more - we were already 1 game behind the curve.

This year the NFC South is bad and there's actually hope at 2-4. It just is what it is. Whether we're mathematically in or out, I'll always be here rooting for the Saints!

I agree, you have to get into the post-season to even have a chance. Let's win the division and see what happens, could get everything working at the right time. If we get beat in the playoffs, at least we had a chance.

GB is hot. how hot? 25th rank offense that is now the 4 ranked scoring offense in the NFL. this will be a hard one

the key is to beat all teams in the division. on the road or at home. they all are must wins to pull this off.

9-6-1=9.5/16=.593 Win %
9-7= 9/16=.562 Win %

Higher Win percentage wins.

You get 1 point for a W. 0 points for a L. .5 points for a T

We missed our opportunity on Sunday when both the falcons & panthers lost. How did that not motivate this team to bust balls to beat the lions.

We played our best game of the year so in some way we did. We just aren't mentally tough to close out games. We played 55mts and thought we had it won it seems to me. Had to have been a long plane ride home.

I would have agreed with you before Detroit. However: 1) the D figured out how to play 3.5 quarters and 2) Drew was getting rid of the ball when it wasn't there for most of the game, 3) Colston remembered how to catch the ball.

Run blocking was sh*tty, but, we were playing the best D in the league so

Listen, dude, you will be happy if we make it to the playoffs at 7-9. And, if we somehow manage to pull-off an unbelievable playoff performance and win it all in the Show -- you will crap your pants with joy.

So, please, STFU.
