Maybe we won't make the playoffs

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Hell I'd love to see the playoffs. I just don't know if this team can win anymore games. We beat arguably one of the best teams in Green Bay and go to Pittsburgh and rough up a pretty good Steeler ...

Hell I'd love to see the playoffs. I just don't know if this team can win anymore games.

We beat arguably one of the best teams in Green Bay and go to Pittsburgh and rough up a pretty good Steeler team. Then we come home and lay an egg against Can Newton and the lowly Panthers. I don't get it.

Re: Maybe we won't make the playoffs

We can't beat the teams that are not elite but think they are(Cincinatti, Baltimore, Detroit) cannot beat teams who suddenly played inspired(Carolina yes they played that way did anyone think otherwise after we went and won week 9 and got cocky?). However we have been in close games or won against the elite teams GB, Pittsburgh, and should have beaten SF but.......thank Colston.

Same thing last year we get killed in St.Louis, New York, Seattle(defensive team) but win in Chicago and should have won in New England.

We may play on a home field, but we have lost any advantage that a home team may have.

These home fans walked out at the 4th quarter. Those footsteps are heard all the way up in Benson's suite.

Well, if we're being honest, the Dome is only half full of "real" Saints fans anymore. After 09 it become the fashionable place to go and be seen and socialize.

I can't really blame anybody who left today though. Normally I wouldn't say that, but the team just totally laid down and quit. It was embarrassing for me to watch and I was just watching it on a computer screen 800 miles away.

Re: Maybe we won't make the playoffs

You know what, I get the feeling the players had the same attitude many of the posters on this message board had.

Before the Steelers game, according to this board, we were one of the worst teams in the league and we needed to rebuild from the ground up. We have a solid win against the Steelers and all of a sudden we are going to win out and make the playoffs.

From a messageboard persective, this is ok, we can be ignorant / one-eyed and think things are just going to fall into place. As a player, you can't, but unfortuantely I think the Saints just thought they could walk out onto the Superdome and win. Well guess what, the Panthers came out and gave us a good old fashioned lesson in work rate. We got way ahead of ourselves.

I know you're hurtin' bro, but no one in Detroit makes the mistake of thinking they're an "elite" team ... at least anyone over 30 that has a lick of sense about football, .
