Peter King and his MMQB



1st off, I'm still bitter and pissed about this loss because I think we should be sitting at 6-0 during this bye week. However, King has us as #4 in his power rankings and I can't link it from my phone but this is his quote, "In a couple of days, the utter shock of Patriots 30, Saints 27, will wear off and the team will go on its bye week, and New Orleans coach Sean Payton will appreciate where the team is. Think of the Saints on October 14, 2012: 1-5, in the midst of a horse crap bye week with no hope. Think of the Saints on Oct. 14, 2013: 5-1, and in 14 days, they beat the 3-0 Dolphins by 21 at home, beat the 3-1 Bears by eight at Soldier Field, and almost beat the 4-1 Patriots by a point in Foxboro. This team's got a ticket to the NFC title game, minimum, barring a major injury streak."

That's great and all. But if that NFC Title game is in Seattle, we have a problem.

I agree. With that being said, the Saints control their destiny as a poster said in a previous thread. We play Seattle and SF. I'll be pumped to go 1-1 against these two but if we can win both then you can book us for home field.

One of the most inaccurate things I heard mentioned several times in major media this past week is that the Saints are nowhere near the same team on the road. This may be the perception but the reality is that the Saints have the best road record in the NFL since 2009. Now 23-12.

The 12th man for the seachickens is legit but no team wins on the road like our boys.

Not basing expectations based on past performance should be applied like for investments. The appeal of the NFL is parity- on any given Sunday. Late in the 3rd qtr Denver only led Jax by 2 pts.

Drew said earlier this season that the NFL is a series of 16 playoff games. This week losing heartbreaker, or if had been a rout either way, has zero to do with the outcome of the Bills coming to the dome.

Well, the perception comes from our playoff away games.

And isn't that what we're talking about?

Again, the media hype for seattle is incredible. they aren't this unbeatable juggernaut.

Seattle struggled with Tennessee yesterday at home and I'd say the Saints are a little better than the Titans with their back up QB.

That said, Seattle's weather in January is a bit overstated. It rarely gets below freezing like in Chicago, and even if it rains, it's generally a light rain.

Seattle is good, but people are putting a ton of weight on that SF game.

I'm so glad this was finally mentioned.




The Saints are sitting at 5-1 going into a bye, with 2 very winnable games after. hey are two games the Saints will be the heavy favorite in, followed by a prime time game vs the Cowboys at home. This team easily, and should be, 8-1 after 9 games.

After that, comes the tricky part.

SF
@ATL
@SEA

If the Saints somehow manage to go 2-1 over this stretch I think you can pencil them in for a top 2 seed. That would have them at 10-2 with CAR, @STL, @CAR and TB remaining. I would bet money on them winning 3 of these at a minimum.

I think we are looking at a 12+ team this season, if they can stay healthy. That was a tough game against New England, but the bye week should really help the team out a lot. The Seahawks will have a few more slip ups, the team is in good shape right now.

More than likely will come down to the head to head with Seattle and unfortunately we play them up there in December. It's going to be a tough one to win as we all know Drew struggles in wet cold conditions.

this is an outstanding point... I have a friend who's from Seattle (big Hawks fan)... we talked about the weather there 1 day... Seattle's in like a perfect spot between the ocean and mountains to where it doesn't really get all that cold (as cold as you'd expect for that part of the country) and snowy there

and the perception is usually about our offense. We've moved the ball in the playoff losses just fine.

Freak turnovers against SF and bad defense has cost us.

we know this?

In Cold weather games he's completed over 65% of his passes and has 19 touchdowns to 9 interceptions

LINK

He plays better in cold weather than any other condition. He's only played in 2 wet games in his entire career, so we don't know shit

I say 12-4... Maybe 13-3. Championship game against Seattle or Dallas and 50/50 shot of advancing to Super Bowl vs Broncos (probably).

Not really a credible sample size.

Away football games are away football games. The person who gets himself psyched out over the playoffs is the guy who will not succeed, whether it is home or away.

In cold weather, we do struggle there no question. I felt we had a very good change this year. I dont want to play a playoff game in Chicago or Seattle or Green Bay or SF for that matter.
