Complete NFC South playoff picture

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Wow...we've come a long way, baby. Folks hoping we don't make the playoffs for fear we'd embarrass ourselves. That we'd lose a playoff game in the Dome. The shame of losing a playoff game at home. Even if it seems ...

Wow...we've come a long way, baby. Folks hoping we don't make the playoffs for fear we'd embarrass ourselves. That we'd lose a playoff game in the Dome. The shame of losing a playoff game at home.

Even if it seems there is little hope for greatness at this point of the season, why in the world would we be afraid of at least the opportunity to try to achieve greatness by the end of it?

We've lost playoff games in the Dome before. I'll take the chance because I want us to make it in.

Can we embarrass ourselves any worse than last week???

I'm embarrassed the we have fans that would rather have a higher draft pick than have a shot at greatness.

At the risk of being told that I see everything through rose colored glasses, me too.

Unfortunately, that shot at greatness will look very much like a highlight reel for the opposing QB's and RB's.

When the idea of picking top ten came out I was sick about the idea.....I warmed up quickly though as I watched the product the Saints put on the field. We don't draft well in the middle or later rounds. Sad but true.

Although now that I think about it we don't draft well period, so where we pick probable doesn't matter. Win out and we're still in the fight. Who Dat!
