I'd be funny if the Saints

Postby wildarmz » Sun Dec 26, 2004 5:22 pm

made the playoffs, lol. I think stl has to lose vs philly. interesting considering how bad their defense is 8-o

The Saints playoff road is simpler after Seattle's 24-21 victory at home late Sunday vs. Arizona.

A St. Louis loss or tie tomorrow night vs. Philadelphia would give Seattle the NFC West title, clinch a playoff berth for Minnesota and would eliminate St. Louis from the playoff chase. The winner of the Saints-Panthers game would then be the sixth seed in the NFC.

If the Rams beat the Eagles, the Saints would need a victory vs. Carolina and a St. Louis loss or tie at home to the N.Y. Jets on the season's final day to qualify for the postseason.

It would be funny b/c they'd have to go on the road and then win. But considering how bad the NFC has been this year, they could potentially pull an upset win.

Funny.
Briefly heard the ESPN radio guys talking about this.
"Unpack your bags? Can you really fire a coach who makes the playoffs?"
Does anyone know if any coaches who made the playoffs were ever fired?

I couldn't find anything about NFL coaches being fired after making the playoffs.

It would be very funny if we made the playoffs but haslet should still be fired and brooks still should be benched for bad play. I know that may seem harsh but fans are always most critical of there own team.

The Saints just have too much offensive talent not to have a better record. I think it's a direct reflection of their coach.

If Brooks had half an ounce of judgement and decision-making ability, the Saints would do a lot better, too. I'm not sure you can blame the coach for that - Brooks has a lot of talent but makes dumb decisions way too often to be a consistent winner. It's too bad because I've liked Brooks ever since he was with the packers.

I agree Brooks should shoulder some blame too for bad decision-making during the game. However, to have a talented QB in Brooks, a stud RB in McAllister and WR's like Horn, Stallworth and Pathon, they should be offensively better than they are. Maybe the offensive coordinator and Haslett need to move on.

i blame haslett. i dont really see in motivation to win from that team in general. the defense is finally showing some signs....so much talent has been wasted in the last few years. haslett needds to get canned even if they make the playoffs. they still have a crappy record, and wouldnt make the playoffs under normal circumstances (ie: nfc teams all sucking)

You guys are all wrong. Its the defenses fault. The fact that Brooks, and to a lesser extent haslett, could overcome that terrible defense is a testiment to the offense. Sure Brooks screws up once in a while, but the offense is still pretty high scoring. Blame the defense.

(Just another way of looking at it)
