Does anyone think we'll get a scheduled SNF game this year?

In 2013 we still got one game after a 7-9 record. But last season was worse than that season and there are a lot more teams that had more wins than us last year. I mean can we still get at least one game over a team like Buffalo who went 9-7 or teams that may deserve more than 1 SNF game such as Arizona, Kansas City(9-7 though), SF(but do they?)? If lions get a second game I could see it being against us. Denver will have better options and KC is playing them in London. And Seattle hosting Detroit is unappealing. We also have them, Arizona, Indianapolis that are all SNF worthy. But with how we have been dogged by the media this offseason I don't know if NBC considers us worthy of SNF.

Saints will no doubt remain on because of Drew Brees.

i say it depends on the draft. get some of those glorified press friendly picks and we have a shot at more than one. go a boring draft, get little media coverage and i agree it will be strictly the Drew factor that could land us one.

Re: Does anyone think we'll get a scheduled SNF game this year?

I am going to say probably two games for the Saints. Despite the down year and the loss of Jimmy Graham, the Saints are still considered a good team by many and still has decent national appeal mainly due to Drew Brees. IMO the most likely match up would by the Dallas game and the second being either Indianapolis or maybe one of the Carolina games.

Re: Does anyone think we'll get a scheduled SNF game this year?

I don't think so. These decisions are driven by ratings and popularity and the Saints are NOT all that anymore, not after last year, or the last 2-3 years.

If they're competitive, they may get a later game FLEXED into prime time, with playoff implications, but I don't see the networks investing a lot of interest or energy in the Saints right now at the start of the season. Maybe ONE game if there's nothing else going on that night.

You saw how when we traded Graham, the Vegas odds of us winning the Super Bowl went down so much? No Sproles, no Graham, front office turmoil, no big name celebrity players besides Brees, who the media desperately wants to see traded somewhere else -- they are not that interested in us, my friends. The Super Bowl was a long time ago.

It's 'what have you done for me lately?' The Saints got blown out by Dallas (boring game) and they only beat the Packers barely, because of Rodgers hammie. I'm not saying that's really the case, but that's the way these people think.

They decide these games based on ratings and media storylines and lowest-common denominator type fluff stuff. Seattle will have a ton of games as will Denver. Giants will have 2 or 3 games because of Odell Beckham's one handed catch and Victor Cruz's dancing. You really can't overthink the level of this stuff. We are basically like, on the level of a lowly San Diego or Cincinatti right now -- maybe one or two good players, but they really don't care what we do.

The less the better for me
Getting up at 1/2am isnt fun.
Saints home games are 6pm for me and though its a rush to get back from work its the best time.

we will get at least one and maybe 2. We might have a losing record but never bad like we used to be. We lose in the game most of the time. I would love to see us play Carolina or Atlanta just because. I don't think TB is going to do much this season.

We still put up points and that is what fans want to see. Expect at least one prime time game.
