Re: Saints Playoff Chances - Computer Power Rankings

So what would we prefer? The giants ending Carolina's undefeated season which would kill any chance at the postseason or giants losing to Carolina and winning the last two.

The redskins are going 8-8, that much is obvious. When a team face eagles and skins back to back on the road or at home, the skins have had matched or had the only win[Jacksonville last year, Dallas 12, Seattle 11, TB 09] and I'm expecting Washington to win. They will win in Dallas last game too as it's a rematch. I don't see them beating eagles. The redskins if they go 8-8 will have won three common games[two vs nfc south, one vs afc east] and giants if they lose to Carolina and go 8-8 will have won three common games[one vs nfc south, two vs afc east]. 3-3 division records, followed by a deadlocked common tie-break, will end in a conference tie-break which skins will win. Eagles will lose this week and to giants to make this possible. Eagles end up 7-9. Giants are runner-up in east in running for a wild card.

Chicago is 4-2 on the road this season and has won four of their last five road games. They can win out believe it or not. Chicago won in Green Bay and Minnesota has lost their last two home games and won close games against StL and KC after a dominant home start. Also, the home team has won a division game among the four teams twice, both involving the lions[lions win at home, lose on the road]. TB if they lose to StL will have nothing better to play for than Chicago. And if Chicago loses that game it' no big deal if TB loses to Carolina as far as our chances if this plays out. Minnesota CAN lose out, the giants play defensive teams well on the road. The giants have won the last two and while they have given up a lot of yards, they haven't TDs. Losing in GB is the icing.

Atlanta is falling apart big time and the only think keeping TB ahead of us in a tie-breaker is division record, we have them beat or tied in common games, and will win one more AFC game than them or tie. We would have to beat Jacksonville for this to happen.

St.Louis is done when they lose in Seattle.

Can we win the next two? We can win the next one and ince it is Monday night we next play and Minnesota and NYG lose it could become a real posibility, ntm the jag game is moved to late afternoon, the outcome of giant-vikes will be revealed beforehand.

But I think most likely week 17 SNF Minnesota/Green Bay tilt will ultimately decide this. Would GB care if they got in via division or wild card? I'll be honest, GB will have to go on the road in second round anyway and they just may concede the division to avoid facing us.

But if we were to get in the playoffs, Carolina goes 16-0 as I doubt Atlanta will beat them next week. Are we pulling for us to make the playoffs or giants to win this week?

Re: Saints Playoff Chances - Computer Power Rankings

Am surprised to see the Falcons that high. Especially with how bad Ryan has been this year.

I hope we dont win another game. I would rather see some bench players get reps and get a better draft pick. All winning out does is hurt us in the draft.
