I'm so confused...

So many of you here are better talent scouts than I am. I go a lot on feel. Vibe. Karma (lol).

Still, having been unable to watch most of the games this year due to my divorce (our games and other team's games too), I'm in 2nd place in my pick league with a record of 97-48, picking straight up. My point being that there must be something - some credibility to my approach. It ain't just luck.

I can't get it out of my head that this team, our team, is about to go on a run. The evidence for it isn't clear I confess, but I can't convince myself otherwise. I smell trouble for our next 3 opponents. I can't justify it really, or maybe I'm just too lazy to try. My gut tells me we are exactly where we're supposed to be - that THIS team needed all this drama...all these close, heartbreaking loses.

We're going to come together. We're going to win the division. I'm going to stop short of predicting we win it all - too many variables - but we're a dangerous team, and I think our guys are about to recognize that they've had enough and that they have all they need, right now, to change their collective fortune.

Don't believe me?

Hide and watch...

I like what you said, I really do.I had that feeling last week only to feel the blues this week. I hope your right!!

It looks like we end up 9-7 with the NFCS lead and a playoff berth.

Don't worry, 73. He can't actually explain it because it IS crazy talk. Why would any team who COULD go up by three scores against us actually game plan NOT to?

Re: Great vibes coming from the team

I agree saintfan. This loss feels a LOT different than the Lions loss. I can't really speak to why, but I said the same thing after the game yesterday. I wouldn't be surprised to see us win 5 of the next 6.

Then again, based on how we've played thusfar, it also wouldn't surprise me if we went 3-3, & missed the playoffs altogether.

What a strange season, across the board.

I'm hoping we run the board from here out however I'm prepared for some high draft picks next year if not.

Re: Great vibes coming from the team

I think we win out. No way we lose 2 in a row at home and got to believe in prime time at home Payton and Brees get their first win against the Ravens.
Pitt is too up and down and I think we can beat them. After Pitt I believe the rest is a cake walk.

Re: Great vibes coming from the team

I see PITT and Chicago as issues. Chicago only because of time of year and they have been terrible at home and that is bound to change (usually our luck). Having the two division teams that have a chance to overtake us having to come to the Dome is a huge advantage. However, let us not forget, beating Tampa in the Dome wasn't easy and could easily have gone the other way.
We keep waiting on the Saint team we think we have to take the field and finish the season strong, but there has only been sightings of such. Again this week we will take our places as fans and see.

Re: Great vibes coming from the team

So the only game we got blown away was Dallas.
Lot of close games which supports the theory that
this is a highly competitive team and could finish
out with 6 out of 7 wins down the stretch.

1 Sep 7 LOSS AT Saints 34 Falcons 37 GAME DAY
2 Sep 14 LOSS AT Saints 24 Browns 26 GAME DAY
3 Sep 21 WIN Vikings 9 Saints 20 GAME DAY
4 Sep 28 LOSS AT Saints 17 Cowboys 38 GAME DAY
5 Oct 5 WIN Buccaneers 31 Saints 37 GAME DAY
6 BYE
7 Oct 19 LOSS AT Saints 23 Lions 24 GAME DAY
8 Oct 26 WIN Packers 23 Saints 44 GAME DAY
9 Oct 30 WIN AT Saints 28 Panthers 10 GAME DAY
10 Nov 9 LOSS 49ers 27 Saints 24
