Re: Getting back in the playoff race

Got to thinking and you have to look at it this way. Last year this whole division sucked. Some won the last few games and some won more in the season early. We had a real shot at winning the division until that last Panthers game in spite of a losing record at the time. Who is to say that the division has improved all that much? We have arguably had the hardest schedule out of any of our division rivals already having played 3 division games and a good Arizona team. We could have easily won every game except the Eagles debacly. We beat ourselves more than the other teams beat us. Who is to say Atlanta and Carolina dont drop 4-5 in a row?

We almost beat Carolina in their own house in spite of some injury and shoddy play. Carolina did just beat Seattle but I dont think Seattle sees the playoffs this year.

Atlantas offensive line just got exposed and our young players are really starting to step up. I also see heart and attitude again on this team.

stranger things have happened.

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

I think we are precisely 2 and 4. We are not good and if I'm being honest I don't see us making the playoffs. I will hope and pray and beg but I don't see it. Of course I hope I'm wrong and we win 12 games. I hope I hope I hope...

Hope to squeak in a wild card spot. Gotta get our head above water & see .500 first. Very excited about our young guys getting it together after 6 games.

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

Carolina might actually be for real.
Atlanta has been exposed, but will make the playoffs based on their schedule. They will travel to Arizona or who knows in the NFC East and lose, 1 and done.

Minnesota is still the team in our cross hairs (thanks Slo, for the false hope this week)

Minnesota, Arizona. We need those teams to start losing some games.

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

I'm growing more optimistic as our young defense gels. Kikiha, Anthony, Breaux, and Swann have rally solidified two positions of need that have plagued us for years. I believe Byrd being healthy has really helped Vacarro as well.

Offense is my concern. Brees worries me. The lack of receivers worry me. The inability of Payton to stick with what is working concerns me. Mark Ingram dominated. I would have kept running the ball down their throats last night. Instead we kept seeing Khiry Robinson get the carries whenever CJ Spiller isn't on the field being used terribly. We should he actively pursuing weapons on the trade block, even if it means giving up a #1. Send the Lions whatever they want for Megatron and send that 6th rounded for Cordarelle Patterson. Bet our offense looks like 2011 then.

Get to 500 and I will entertain it. Right now, no. We are looking better. Still not making up much ground on Panthers and Falcons.

Patterson is a bad route runner. Can't get open on regular basis. He won't help us.
