How would you guys prefer to see the season play out?

There are two ways of looking at this. Either the Saints win the division and lose probably embarrassingly in the playoffs like every year when we actually have good teams, or make a deep playoff push which i think at this point is highly unlikely.

Or not win the division and get better draft position? To be honest could we really even win a playoff game against another team? I dont think we could beat the Jaguars right now if we played them. Currently we sit at 10th in the draft, now i dont know the type of talent the draft has yet, but we could certainly pick a top tier player for one of our many needs. If we're one and done in the playoffs we would jump all the way to about 21st. The talent difference between 10-21 is huge imo. We could draft some playmakers. If the front offfice could draft them, dont get me started on the crap.

I'm not saying suck for players, but at this point do we really want them to win some games to only be disappointed in the end? Nothing would make me happier to see us win the super bowl with a losing record., but really do you think it is possible with THIS team? I'm not condoning losing out, but at this point it would be better for our team in the long run.

This is an easy one, win the division and hope for the best. We know a major retool is needed, so this may be the last playoff chance for a while.

Win the next 5. Go into the playoffs healthy. Win at home. Travel to Arizona and win. Have the other wild card team advance. Have the NFC Championship in the dome. Win. Go to the Super Bowl and beat the Bills. (LOL.) Have the best CB, OLB, RT, WR, G, C, and RB in the draft fall to the Saints in the draft in rds 1-7. Sign the best UDFA's in history to take the place of Byrd, Grubbs, Watson, Bunkley, Lofton, S. Graham and Hawthorne to clear some cap space. Hit the Powerball. World peace.

Re: How would you guys prefer to see the season play out?

I admit to not being the fan of college game as many of you.

That being said - are there 1-2 players in the top 40 picks (assuming we did finish bad) that are going to turn this thing around fast?

I have not heard of them if there are...

No team in the playoff hunt scares me. Playoffs are all about getting hot at the right time.

We have just as good a chance as anyone to win it all. Besides, having a late 1st rounder means we might actually select a top OG, OC, DT or LB.

At this point I would say it would be nice to win it just to keep Atlanta or Carolina out, but it might be nice to watch one of them get in and get embarrassed. I think I would just prefer to lose out and get better draft status. I think of all of us Atlanta looks like they are actually improving as far as their play. Coaching is hurting them them just as bad as the team is.

Win. I'll take the potential to achieve glory over the potential of draft picks every time.

Ah! A repeat of the question from 17th November.
My answer remains unchanged:

Better that, always. And better that especially than coming 2nd or 3rd in a bad year.
