the saints only real shot at the playoffs is that second wild card and right now they have tampa, minnesota, and seattle in front of them. the first wild card will most likely go to whoever finishes second in the nfc north.
God knows why they abandoned the run in the second half. They did nothing yo take pressure off of Brees, even though it was obvious he was struggling.
His consecutive games with a TD pass is gone now also. At 5-7 I think their playoff hopes are gone. They'll come prepared for the Giants next Sunday, but I think if the Giants jump out to a double digit lead the Saints will lay down and play dead.
Football has been very, very good to us.
In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
