I think its just logical.

Probably 3/4 of the NFL teams are good enough to beat you on any given day, so beating a "decent" NFL team 3 times in the same year is like winning a coin toss 3 times in a row.

You have to beat playoff teams to get anywhere once you get to the playoffs.
I donít know if you saw the Panthers yesterday, but that team couldnít have beat the Browns.

I'm going to remind you of this the next time I say the draft is a crap shoot.



I agree though. But there are things you can do to tip the odds in your favor. Or you can flip them in the other direction, like with ill-timed otherwise unnecessary fake FGs.

After landing on heads two times in a row, the odds of landing on heads a third time are still 50-50.

We also beat Atlanta.

For the most part, the NFL is a week to week league.

It is clearly harder to not lose to a team three times in a season, especially when that team that won the prior two is playing at home.

And the Bills too. Also take a look at the losses. 5 losses. All to current playoff teams except for TB, including a #1, #2, and #3 seed. And honestly there were extenuating circumstances with most of them:

1. Minnesota: PJ Williams was a starting CB and Lattimore was playing in his first game.
2. Patriots: Same and Anzalone was matched up with Gronk. Talk about a mismatch.
3. Rams: Lattimore and Crawley didn't play at all.
4. Falcons: Brees put a winnable game in jeopardy with a stupid throw in the red zone.

The team out on the field this upcoming Sunday is different, and better, than the team we fielded even a month ago.

I really think Dude is simply steeling himself for the case that the Saints do not win the SB. Of course each and every team that makes the playoffs wins the SB each season. NOT! I really think more of us here need to be like Buffalo Bills fans: don't worry about the outcome, just enjoy the fact that you get a chance to take the ride.

Super Bowl Championships: New Orleans Saints:1, Carolina:0, Atlanta Chokers: STILL ZERO

Only Atlanta choked in an unchokable situation... Life is definitely good.

Home (3 - 1) lost to NE badly
Away (1 - 3) lost to Falcons (but not really), Min, LAR
We've lost 18 players to IR. We aren't even the same team. We will be beyond lucky to make the NFC Championship game.
