Bears Saints

As for Bear-Saints tonight, the Saints are the ultimate home/away animal...great at home in the dome, and inept on the road....add in the freezing Chicago weather, and "da" bears should win easily...As great a coach as Payton has been in the past, we should thank our lucky stars for an absolutely TERRIBLE coaching job this year to maximize the draft choices !! GO BEARS !!

Yeah, but we want the Saints to have something to play for in their last game of the season, at home against Carolina. NFC South teams are already ridiculous at home against each other -- I think they may even be undefeated -- but the Saints need every game to get into the playoffs. They lose tonight, and they'll have no incentive against Carolina.

It's almost like a question of: Do you want your advantage this year (with the Saints winning and having something to play for against the Panthers during the last week of the regular season) or next year (with the Saints losing and the Giants getting a better draft pick)?

Not to sound heretical, but I myselfdon't think a #2 seed in the playoffs would be the end of the world. The weather might be better for Eli and the team. Also, they might be angrier and play tougher In addition, we saw what happened a few years ago when the Panthers came into town for the playoffs.

Four Giants finished second at their positions: Tackle David Diehl (209,447), fullback Madison Hedgecock (229,081), kicker John Carney (128,929) and special teamer Chase Blackburn (133,623).
