Our two options

If you had told me these were the two options at the beginning of the season I'd have scoffed at you and called you an idiot as the Saints were primed for a superbowl year. With the safety position depleted after the loss of Rafael Bush I have lost every speckle of hope I had going into the Bengals game. I see no strength, leadership, or sync in this team. Considering the holes in this team I would prefer a higher pick and not make the playoffs.

Re: Our two options

Problem is we probably gonna finish behind Atlanta without any option because I don't see this team winning more than 2 or three more games tops right now.

The said thing is, say we win the last three division games; that could put us in the playoffs

I voted for the playoffs, come on no one wants to see the team give up and strive for a lower draft pick...

Re: Our two options

Hmm!!!! A higher draft pick or a extra week to be miserable from a lost if we made the playoffs.... Very tempting but I have hope if they were to get into playoffs they could win it all

Re: Our two options

Well, there's no 'Andrew Luck' coming out in this year's draft (as far as I know), so you might as well "play to win", eh? .

Re: Our two options

We are talking the NFL, professionals always play to win no matter what. Now as a fan, I hope the Saints can win the division and get into the playoffs. The biggest issue going into next year isn't the need for a high draft pick, it is the need to figure out a way to get out of the salary cap mess they are in.

Re: Our two options

Funny, this sounds exactly like the Bengals board before the Saints game.

Y'all are welcome back on board after we defeat the Ravens.

Re: Our two options

It is a no-brainer and don't even hesitate, always always always pick the division win and the playoff game, no matter what.

Because it's another banner for hanging in the rafters of the Dome, to put next to the other ones. Then you can point to it and tease visiting Falcons and Panthers fans before the game. In 4 years, nobody will remember the crappy record it took to get it, but they will always see the banner and know we have another division title up there, that we were better than the Falcons.

We need as much fabric hanging in the rafters of the Dome as we can get. That's called history.
