And worst of all, we dug ourselves a VERY deep hole. Right now we're only back up to a little better than a 1 in 6 chance of the playoffs.

NFC Playoff Picture


Between Carolina and Atlanta, it is hard to imagine BOTH of them cratering, so the division is likely out of reach.

That leaves us fighting for a wildcard and there are a bunch of teams ahead of us in that race:

Falcons 6-1
Vikings 4-2
Rams 3-3
Seahawks 3-4 (better NFC record)
Redskins 3-4 (better NFC record)
Eagles 3-4 (have head to head win over us)


We have to pass up 5 of those 6 teams and stay ahead of those we are already ahead of (DAL, TB, CHI, SF, DET) to be the 6th seed. TALL ORDER.

I have a sneaking suspicion that loss to Tampa in week 2 will be the deciding game against us... Typical Saints luck.


For now I'm enjoying the small victories - some sacks and turnovers - and not looking big picture (at least not seriously). Hope the players are doing the same because we can't say the corner on this season has been turned yet...
there's nothing incorrect about your post. We have a long way to go, but at least it was better than the frigan Eagles game

Re: Don't eat the cheese...

YEa yesterdays game was cool and all and felt good to at least get a win but it showed we still do not know how to close games. It took us jumping in front of a bad team by 20 points to win that game. It was a lot closer than people seem to think.

I do see improvement but dont kid yourself this is not a playoff team. What you saw yesterday will be our season. We will win some games against bad teams and get to see some rookies develop and get to see improvement. Its just not enough to start thinking playoffs this year.

Re: Don't eat the cheese...

The big picture is looking at next year. I like what I saw but for us to make the playoffs we'll have to go 10-6 at a minimum, that is doable the problem is we aren't going to do much from the 6th seed. Very long shot to make it at all.

Most disappointing is Drew getting hurt. I bet if he was healthy we win the tampa game and Carolina game. 5-2 would be much better than 3-4...

We couldn't have jumped out in front of a bad team by 20 at all a few weeks ago. Definitely we are showing improvement. That's what I'm geared for this season, and I assure you all I'll be thrilled if this team finishes better than .500. I'm not indicting them. As I've said, we are learning, and our future is bright, and I'll be the first in line at the crow bar if necessary, but we're a long way from being a playoff team.

Next test will be the G-Men who aren't exactly lighting the world on fire either. I think our momentum will take us through at home.
