The Saints Nation:
Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?!?! You kidding me?!?!?! I just hope we can win a game!
That's pretty much how I, and all of you, should feel about the Saints' chances at this point. BUT, I'm not one to give up until there's no mathematical chance. Ever if there's a sliver of hope and 785 things have to happen in perfect order for the Saints to get in, I will continue to root for that until it's a physical impossibility. After all, for years before the Sean Payton era, especially in the 80's and 90's, I turned the art of calculating how the Saints could possibly get into the playoffs down to a science. Of course, these complicated theories always rested on the Saints winning out, when losing out was a much more realistic end scenario. None the less, teams get hot and a switch can flip overnight. The Saints' backs are against the wall. They will need to win their final 4 games to have a shot. Here's the competition:

Pete Carmichael Jr. took over for Sean Payton this season as the offensive play caller and while the players on the field are carrying out the plays, I wanted to look out how this offense has compared in 2012 to all the other seasons when Sean Payton was either calling all the plays or at least overseeing the team.

Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation stops by to break down the disaster in Atlanta. He compares watching it to watching the Heath Shuler led Saints. He and Ralph discuss if the Saints would have been better off if they had played the good teams on their schedule early in the season and Andrew explains why the offensive line has struggled and what it might look like next year.
The way New Orleans middle linebacker Curtis Lofton sees it, the Saints have two defensive coordinators.
Steve Spagnuolo and himself.
"Really, I'm the on-field coordinator," Lofton told FOXSports.com in a telephone interview. "In this system, you've got five different calls in one (defensive) call. Your job from what you are seeing is to get the defense in...
The New York Giants are mad. After their Monday night loss to the Redskins, those that are students of the game knew that they would be.
Atypically for them at this stage of the season that means that they next team up on their roster has to pay a large tax for the events of the game prior.

The New Orleans Saints know they are long shots to make the playoffs even if they beat the New York Giants on Sunday.
Still, they haven't given up - taking inspiration from the Giants, who made a postseason run from a position similar to one in which the Saints find themselves now.

Despite their 5-7 record, the New Orleans Saints have one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. That has been the case ever since Drew Brees came to the Bayou in 2006, but New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is not overly concerned about it.
Coming off a loss to the Washington Redskins, Pierre-Paul believes defending Brees, Jimmy Graham and company will seem like...

Giants fans how do y’all feel about RG III?
Here is a quick run down of the things that we learned in week 12 of the NFL.
1. Falcons got the last laugh at the Saints … Well for this year. Somebody cut Sean Payton a check.
2. 49er’s coach Jim Harbaugh might have made a mistake … maybe, …. probably ….. likely.
3. Don’t look now but Broncos won again, that makes...
