Saints are up to 12th in the NFC. St. Louis, Arizona, Minnesota and TB are all ahead of them, and I can see all four of those teams fading. Would have to beat out Detroit and Seattle for the 6 seed.
As for the schedule, I see the Saints splitting with the Falcons. Seems as if they split quite a lot with few sweeps. If the Saints commit to the run, they can split. The Saints have to beat Carolina, TB, Dallas and Oakland. They're better and should win. That leaves huge games with the 49ers and the Giants. The Giants game is in NY, and the Giants don't play well at home. It could happen.
If this team could go 9-7, it'd be impressive even if they failed to make the playoffs.
Okay it's time to give those Falcants their 1st lost of the season. We have won 10 of the last 12 match-ups.
Has anyone noticed how they're using J Rogers as a poor mans D Sproles? I guess I can't blame Mike Smith for trying to emulate our offense.
