    Poll Who Dat?

    So the question is will the Saints overcome starting 0-4 and blowing the game with Tampa Bay to clinch the wild card spot in the NFC?

    Also, I'm not sure one the poll options is valid. If the Giants drop two straight and end up at 9 - 7 along with the Saints, I don't know who would get the nod in the case of the tie. I guess it would have to do with either their divisional records or conference records.

    I think the tie-breaker is conference records. Currently, the Giants have a 7-5 mark in NFC games w/ two AFC opponents left. If the Saints win out, their NFC mark will be 8-4.

    If the saints lose to the bears team I saw last night I'm gonna lose it. Now if the saints lose to the weather in Chicago, that'll be another story.

    From the N.E. potentially going undefeated thread:

    Guess where my vote went? :icon_wink:

    Yes, and for the record, the Saints also hold this same tiebreaker over any other NFC teams that may potentially finish with the same record as them, including Washington and Minnesota (assuming the teams were to be tied at 9-7 overall).

    Sure do, and I think the Saints have a good chance if they can win out. I think Minnesota can easily lose to either one of their remaining opponents. If the Giants dont beat Buffalo, they will definately lose to the Patriots. I see the Buffalo game as a playoff game for the Giants, they need to win or they wont get in, IMO.

    I think the tiebreaker is record in the division before record in the conference. I think the Saints get in but I have homer points involved in my guess. My favorite AFC team is a shoe in -- Go Patriots

    Everyone knows what is gonna happen..the Saints will make the playoffs, get hot and go all the way to the Super Bowl and guess who they will play.....the undefeated Patriots..That would be the Saints luck...Even when they get good, they still have the worst luck. Now, doesn't that sound like a true saints fan..lol...there's always next year!

    1. Saints played neither team. (Minnesota beat NYG)
    2. Saints (6-4) 2 left, Vikings (6-5) 1 left, Giants (7-5) done in conference
    3. Saints & Giants vs. common opponents ~ Saints 3-0 (2 remain)/ Giants 5-0 (Saints win out, this is a tie)
    Saints & Minnatoada vs common opponents ~ Saints 3-0 (2 remain) / Vikings 4-1 (Saints win out, they win this tie)
    G-men & Vikings vs common opponents ~ Giants 7-4 > Vikings 5-5 (1 remain) (Doesn't matter, Giants have this one)

    No need to go any farther. I don't see any possible scenario to go to the 4th tiebreaker

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Well, that's not exactly what I would call bad luck. I mean, holy crap, this is the Saints we're talking about here. The team that's never even been to a Super Bowl - a feat that only 5 other teams can claim (with 2 of them having been in existence for less than 15 years). Having never been, it's pretty tough to come up with a scenario involving both the Saints and the Super Bowl that paints a negative picture for me.

    I'll take what I can get, even if it ultimately means being a footnote on N.E.'s undefeated season.
