Do any 0-2 NFL teams still stand a chance to make the playoffs?

I say the Saints will got into the bye week at 2-2, get on a roll and win the division and at least one playoff game.

"The New Orleans Saints also have a puncher's chance. Despite sitting at 0-2, they are only a game back of everyone in the division. The Buccaneers are young, the Falcons are sporadic and the Panthers haven't really gotten off on the best foot (their running back, Jonathan Stewart, is already hurt). New Orleans still has Drew Brees, who has thrown for 686 yards already this year. The issue for the Saints is the schedule. After their Week 5 bye, they get the Panthers, Chiefs and Seahawks in successive weeks. After traveling to San Francisco, they get the Broncos and Panthers in back-to-back games, so it certainly won't be easy. But if the defending NFC champion Panthers falter, the division could be there for the taking."

We've seen it happen with other teams, excluding the Browns of course....

There is no reason why they can't. I have faith.

That's right.....except for our corners I feel pretty good about this young group. Moore has played well but we need Breaux and Williams back before I have any faith in this defense.

I choose not to be negative. I'll probably outlive everyone here who insists on being negative all the time.

Oh, and black and gold. Always black and gold.

12% sounds about right. We will need to catch fire at some point like last year's Chiefs.

You're the most negative person here, pal. Your level of faith in a team doesn't define your whole personality. Same with anyone else.
