Re: Saints need 4/4 for HFA

The Seahawks loss adds another scenario into getting a bye now.

Packers lose either game and we win gives us a bye as the 2 seed

Seattle beats 49ers and we win give us a bye as the 2 seed.

Both scenarios occurring simultaneously gives us the 1 seed(though both scenarios would have always given us the 1 seed, nothing has really changed in regards to the 1 seed). If Seattle would have beaten Arizona, the only way we could have gotten a bye is if the Packers lost(and we'd got the 1 seed if Seattle beat the 49ers). If Seattle would have beaten the 49ers and Arizona, and the Packers would have won out, the most we could have gotten was the 3 seed. The reason being is Seattle, Green Bay, and NO would have been in a 3 way tie. The only other way, which would have been highly unlikely is if the 49ers and Seattle tied next week. The Arizona victory over Seattle opened a lot of doors for us in terms of getting a bye.

Well the Seahawks aren’t beating the 49ers next week. We have to trust Kirk “0-8 in prime time” Cousins without Dalvin Cook to beat the Packers.

I'll bet that the Hawks do beat the Niners.

Worst case scenario for Niners now

Seahawks coming off embarrassing loss. Winning at home is the difference between wildcard and division title.

I can’t see Seattle losing that one

Re: Saints need 4/4 for HFA

Seattle lost more than just the game today ...

RB Chris Carson, CJ Prosise and OT Dwayne Brown season's are over.

I'm all in on "Next Man Up", but those injuries will be difficult to overcome. Home field will be hard to obtain but at this point, I'll "settle" for a 1st round bye every day of the week.

Our guys need time to heal up.

Seahawks lost today.

Regardless of what happens between the Vikes/Packers on tomorrow night, Saints will be the #2 seed if we defeat the Panthers on next weekend... And we're not losing to the Panthers. Now if Russ can somehow ink out a W next week vs the Niners & GB lose tomorrow...Lagniappe. The Super Bowl goes through New Orleans & dome sweet dome . Concert time !

This 2019 Saints team can win anywhere though. They are mentally strong and well coached.

We need either the Vikings to beat packers to earn the number 2 or seattle to beat the 49ers. Absent either of those scenarios we are the number 3.

If both happen we are number 1.

I think the vikes win tonight.

Re: Saints need 4/4 for HFA

I absolutely hate it when other teams have to lose for us to have a better spot in the playoffs. It reminds me of the Saints of old. I'd rather determine my own fate.
