    NFC playoffs could see a 5-11 team in and a 12-4 team out

    Here’s how bad the NFC South is, and how good the NFC wild card race is: There are scenarios in which a 5-11 team is in the playoffs as NFC South champion, and a 12-4 team is left out of the playoffs entirely. We noted last week that it’s entirely possible that a five-win team…

If by some miracle the Browns won (which I don’t expect) this will be an opportunity for the Saints to reclaim first place in the division. If the Falcons won, then this feels like a must win to stay in contact for a possible playoff spot. There’s no denying at this point, the Saints are a team in real trouble. Despite the early season woes on the road we still have the invincibility at home to hang on to. Now the Saints have lost two straight home games after previo…

They have gained the ability to win on the road but are now struggling to win at home losing two games to the 49ers and to the Bengals. The Saints need to get in that groove of winning not only at home but on the road. The Saints have also given up a lot of turnovers allowing 19 and their defense has forced only six.Mark Ingram went down with a elbow injury in week two against the Cleveland Browns…

  • Goodbye To All That
    This is my last post here, because I'm done with the NFL. So let's get one thing straight from the beginning: this is not a response to the Saints' loss at Seattle. Actually, I had been planning something like this for quite a long time, to be posted after the last game of the season—whatever that game was, however it ended. This is all about the damnable behavior of the so-called men behind the current NFL.

    Three and out. Savor those words. Let them sink into your brain and emboss their shape on your cortex. Three and out. The phrase describes almost perfectly the course of this, one of the epic losses in the long, tawdry history of New Orleans Saints losses. It describes the Carolina offense, which was helpless until it wasn't. It describes the Saints' offense, which needed just ten yards to seal a victory already won, and instead gained no yards at all. I wonder: does it describe the end of our season?
