Saints Best Playoff Chances...

"If" the Saints make the playoffs I think this would be the best scenario for getting to the Superbowl. I don't want Seattle to get any home games and I'd rather not the Saints play at Lambeau in January.

1. Green Bay
2. Philly
3. Arizona
4. New Orleans
5. Detroit
6. Seattle

Rd 1
#5 Detroit @ #4 New Orleans
#6 Seattle @ #3 Arizona

Rd 2
#4 New Orleans @ #2 Philly
#6 Seattle @ #1 Green Bay

Rd 3
#6 Seattle @ #4 New Orleans

Anything can happen.

I thought of this exact scenario a few weeks ago, and I think that would be the best route to go.

I'd love to geaux to Seattle, exorcise some demons and exact some payback...

Re: Saints Best Playoff Chances...

I don't entertain playoff scenarios much because my team so infrequently gets there, ... but I've been thinking a #4 NO/#5 DET first round rematch in the Dome is a distinct possibility with the way GreenBay's been playing and the fact Detroit's final regular season game is always in Lambeau, in December, and they usually drop that one. Lions might finish 11-5 . Cowgurlz/Seahags may be the better teams though.

If it does happen, might be a good excuse for me to head south & do some tailgating, .

JP,
I think Philly can be had ... again. Their secondary is questionable at best.


As for Seattle.. I want no parts of Quest Field (or whatever they call that stadium). They are starting to get their mojo back.

Unfortunately, our secondary is questionable as well as our O-line and our D-line..........oh yes, our LB'ers are also questionable. did I cover everything? I doubt it.

Re: Saints Best Playoff Chances...

We can beat the Eagles.
It will all be about turnovers in that game,copying last years plan of letting Ingram, Robinson and Thomas grind them down with Colston and Graham short and Stills making sure they can't fill the box. Its on the offense not turning over and if the defense can create a but of pressure and the backs make sure they don't drop easy picks(Sanchez will offer the ball up a few times) we can win there.

Re: Saints Best Playoff Chances...

I like this - just switch Detroit and Seattle.

I want Seattle kicked from the playoffs by the Saints as game 1 of the playoffs.

Save the Lions to the NFCCG.

Re: Saints Best Playoff Chances...

The eagles have 2 things that concern me which is why I'd like to stay away from them.

1) They run a tempo offense which does 2 things. It tires a defense out and it makes it difficult to communicate defensive assignments. We already have enough problems communicating as it is. No need to make it worse.

2) We aren't very good at tackling quick shifty backs and have fairly slow lineman and linebackers so mccoy and sproles would be a huge problem.

I'd prefer seattle or detroit.

Re: Saints Best Playoff Chances...

First we have to win the south. Then we can worry about who we will play and where. Do we have the ability to win the remainder of our games?
We have been jeckel & hyde all year. We don't know which team will show up each week.
