We just need more speed to stretch the field. Cooks is the only one who can at the moment. Plus he's like 6'2". Brees should be able to get him right. A 6th rounder is worth the chance.

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

ONE week at a time...

We are not the dominant team we once were. And evidently a 27 point lead will not be enough.

One of my favorite phrases soon to come:

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

We are not in the playoff race. However, we just defeated an undefeated division opponent. Next up, we got up 27-0, on an OK team who looked good against the Pats, while we were on the road, while creating 3 turnovers and getting lots of pass rush, and playing balanced on offense ( Pass 266 / Run 183 ). The trajectory we are on right now -- says our stock is rising.

Lots to do though -- we still gave up 376 yards. There are way too many penalties. Receivers and QB still not in sync. And, we need to learn how to finish games.

Commit to improving in 2015 = not embarrassing yourself.

We'd need a few good bounces to finish 8-2. Its possible but there's no margin for error.
10-6 probably gives us a 50% shot at a wildcard.
9-7 will require some luck.

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

Beating a 4-3 NFC New York Giant team at home this Sunday when you're 3-4 will help start the playoff talk again.

We need to start piling up NFC wins...oh, and get to .500 first.

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

nine games remaining...We will definitely be favored in 6, def underdog at ATL, and question mark games will be home to Carolina and @ Wash: 2-3 points + or -

so... we'll be the better team in 7 of the 9 remaining games
