[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']Saints might just finish the year 11-5.[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']Saints are not going to lose at home. They split their road games and they are in. Admitted, you know the Panthers are in trouble. From 8-2 to out of the playoffs. Wow how depressing would that be? Tampa, they are in the drivers seat for the division. If Saints can pull the upset they have a great chance. If not the wildcard is a real possibility.[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']Delusional huh? Let's see Panthers @ Green Bay (L) @ Giants (L) @ Saints (L) lose one of the two against Denver and Bucs and finish 9-7 or even win their home games and finish 10-6 they lose the tie breaker against the Saints, Bucs or Falcons because they would have 6 losses against NFC teams. Saints win their home games and split with Bucs/Bears and finish 10-6. If they beat the Bucs they have a great chance of winning the division. Falcons have a very similar situation. If they can beat the Bucs then the game against the Saints might decide the division.[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']I think you might be right. Bucs schedule is easier but if the Saints beat them next week then the game the following week with the Falcons might be for the division.[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']Not trying to be a Saints homer here but if they beat the Bucs on Sunday they have a great shot at winning the division. Look at the schedule and the fact that one of their losses was to an AFC team and you will see what I mean.[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']You might want to rethink that. Mark this down, if the Saints beat the Bucs then they will win the division. Now that is a big if because the Bucs are very good at home but Brees always has a good game against the Bucs so they have a good chance. So you might be thinking I am crazy but here is the logic. Assuming all the trends continue like home team winning in NFC south games (excluding the Saints/Bucs of course :
Saints Bucs Panthers Falcons
@Bucs=W @Saints=L @Packers=L @Chargers=W
Falcons=W @Panthers=L Bucs=W @Saints=L
@Bears=L @Falcons=L Broncos=W Bucs=W
@Lions=W Chargers=W @Giants=L @Vikings=L
Panthers=W Raiders= W @ Saints=L Rams=W
Saints win divison because of better divisional record[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']Not too well. Bucs D was just too tough and Brees didn't get it done when we had the chance. Bucs will win the division even if they lose to you guys on Monday.[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']When you guys lose to the Bucs or Broncos, Giants and Saints who will be at home then?[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']I am telling you, 9-7 very real possiblilty for the Panthers.[/quote]
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']Here is another good one that we can come back to at the end of the season.
The Panthers are the only team in recent memory that started the season 8-2 and did not make the playoffs.
[quote name='wdk/blackandgold10']I was dead wrong with a lot of the things I have been saying over the last few weeks. I am a blind loyalist to the Saints and because of that I believe things about my team because I want them to happen not because they are true. After the game last night I was done, ready to find another team and stop this madness. By 2:00 in the morning I was looking at next years schedule (which is a b*tch for NFC South teams). By this morning I was looking at the draft boards and now I have come up with a good excuse and blaming it on our injuries. .[/quote]
