Could The Saints Have Beat Philly?

In light of the results of the game yesterday where MinniHaha was wiped off the football field, would the Saints have provided a better matchup and hence a better game? Would we have even won the game, or were our injuries simply too much to overcome?

As much as it pains me to say this, no one could have beaten Philly last night. It was their night to shine.

I think the game would have been closer. I think the only reason Minn got as far as they did was their Defense. Outside of that they didn't have the offense to beat a team like Philly.

The other think I liked about Philly was they didn't mess around. Instead of running the clock out at the half they put the foot down and drove the ball down field. GO FOR THE WIN all or nothing.

Homefield adavantage also huge.

This is why I wanted Atlanta to beat Philly.

In any case...Minnesota got lucky on Sunday when you consider that now they won't be the first team to lose a Superbowl in their home stadium.

Might have been a post-birdie FU by the Vikings- pretty hard to continue a high level of play after such an emotional game.

That, and Philly was just lights out good.

Would we have won? Yes

Yes, maybe, one thing for sure, it would have been a lot better game.

Re: Could The Saints Have Beat Philly?

Yes I do think we would have won because having been given little chance of winning against the Vikings and then doing so, the Saints as always, use the negative from the pundits and media to up their game and try and prove people wrong.
We again, would have been given the underdog tag going to the Eagles, understandably but I think that would have been the fuel the Saints would have needed to get the win.

Looking forward to see how things go for us next season.

GEAUX SAINTS! WHO DAT!

Maybe, maybe not.

Saints must find a way to secure home field next year. The off season (free agency), upcoming draft & guys staying healthy will be key to our success.
