Must win

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We have to take care of Carolina. I don’t think Atlanta is as much of a threat, have been beaten by Carolina and we have their number. Without sweeping we are almost surly in the playoffs unless we lay eggs ...

Must win

We have to take care of Carolina. I don’t think Atlanta is as much of a threat, have been beaten by Carolina and we have their number. Without sweeping we are almost surly in the playoffs unless we lay eggs against the Falcons. Cam was injured and couldn’t run much first time around but he’s second in ypc after Kamara. Okafor will be missed. Crawly is going to help take away the pass which Cam has not done well with so far.
Offense on our side has to execute or we are in trouble.
We need to cheap shot Cam early and often to rattle him. A courple of nice sacks early can put him in scared baby pout mode. I’ll take a penalty or two against us in our house.
Maybe not cheap but get to him. Penetration is key here and we can come out with a win.
This is a playoff game and a good team will miss the wildcard. We have to win this one and move to Atlanta with a healthy Lattimore.
We have been lucky in every game except the Bills and Dolphins who suck. Played 3 playoff teams with franchise QBs out or very banged up.
Cam will run like his career is s on the line.

Re: Must win

They've all been must win - since Minnesota...

Amazing how a Week 1 loss, where Payton didn't trust an effective running game, but trusted the No. 5 CB (Harris), may cost us home-field advantage in the playoffs...

Re: Must win

Who else was suppose to play? If not Harris?, He has played poorly but he WAS NOT the only one Rafael Bush missed tackles Pj Willaims had a bad game as well and KV. Defense was dumbfounded last Sunday lets hope they are past their brain farts offensively and defensively.

Tell me how we got lucky in the Redskins game, playing without our top cb for most of the game and without klein.

And how did we get lucky in the 1st carolina game?

I dont think you win 8 games in a row in the nfl being lucky.

Crawly.

We got lucky that Cam was banged up and couldnít run.

He did run a bit though. We did a better job containing. He is running more often because his shoulder is hurt and itís effecting his throws. He is going to try and run more this week but the D should be ready for it.

I donít know if this is a must win, but it makes the rest of the season much more important.

4-1 for the rest of the season and we take the division (maybe first round bye)
3-2 should get us a wildcard spot
2-3 might not make the playoffs

Home field advantage is over rated. See 2016 13-3 Dallas Cowboys .

Everyone is 0-0 & battle tested come playoffs. One slip up ... done.

Especially in the Dome. The visiting team fans are showing up in record numbers and making noise when they want to. Not exactly producing "Fan Impact Plays", but it's unnerving.

All the while, the Season Tix - Club seats sit on their hands. You stand up and shout and you'll be told to sit down and "enjoy the game".

Let's just WIN.

So you saw this in the Dome this season? And where do you get your record number of visiting fan statistics? How many games have you personally attended in the Dome over the past couple of years?

Have others here experienced this? I know I haven't.

Well?
