added Playoff Machine


Offensive rank puts us at 11-5 w/ 5th seed... Defensive rank 5-11 w/ no advance

None of the other predictors placed us into the post-season.


??? It didn't give me Dome Field advantage when I put it in... must have not loaded.

Saints can get into 6th place by beating the 49ers
and..
Miami beat Seattle
Chicago beat Minnesota
Atlanta beat Tampa Bay.

Simple as that. We were 0-4 and left for dead.

Miami beat Seattle


biggest question mark game of those, and possibly the biggest non-saints game left for the entire season.

3 out of 4 aint bad


I've been going over all the scenarios on the scenario generator, and it's pretty clear 10-6 gets us in. With all of the playoff contenders in the East and North playing each other, and Seattle playing Chicago I easily see us getting in if we win out.

9-7 is surprisingly very very possible too as long as Seattle loses to Chicago and Tampa loses to Denver this week. Giants beating Skins would be nice too.

If those two games go our way, I really think we get in at 9-7 as long as we beat Giants, Bucs, and Cowboys. We can afford to lose to ATL or Carolina.

For some reason we're getting all the tie breakers if a bunch of teams end up tied at 10-6 or 9-7.

Just have to win that 3 game stretch at NYG, Bucs, and at Dallas.

That is the key.

Still VERY much alive people.




Gotta put this L behind us and get ready for a quick turnaround in ATL.

re: Saints Playoff Machine


New scenarios:

Saints 9-7 PLAYOFFS
- Beat Atlanta, Lose to NYG, Beat TB, Dal, Car. This same scenario works for any way we go 4-1. We will have every tiebreaker, no matter what game we lose. It is really pretty simple. Go 4-1 and I like our chances. We just have to beat either Atlanta or the Giants.

Saints 8-8 PLAYOFFS
Making it in at 8-8 will be extremely tough, but its possible.
- Pull for Atlanta to lose the rest of the way. Not because of the division, but because we need them to have to win vs TB in Week 17.
- Seattle needs to lose at home vs Arizona or St.Louis
- Dallas needs to beat Washington in Washington in Week 17
