I voted yes. History of this team under this era has proven you dont have to have a defense to win games, you just need Drew Brees on his game and the offense clicking and we can outscore anybody. Would a defense make it easier ? Of course. Can we still do it without one ? Absolutely !!!!
not with this D if we are in mathematically, they most likely will lose out in dramatical fashion(D that is) they just arent reliable . hopefully things change but it needs to in a hurry when we win this sunday against the chargers it will be a big help going into our bye week, just having Sean in the Dome should be EPIC. lifting the Team up.
Good poll, and last week I'd have voted yes, but 0-4 is such a huge mathematical hole to be in. We need a 4 game winning streak just to get to .500 and that's not going to get us to the top of the division. Too many little things go wrong in every game to allow us to be as lucky as we need to be.
We've got an offense with potential, but our playmakers are dropping the ball. And the D...good guys, but none who are overcoming in the new scheme...
I hope I'm wrong, maybe the wildcard race comes down to an 8 win team and we could get in like the year of Steve Walsh...but that year we had a coaching staff and this year we've got a rookie head coach.
I believe we can still make the playoffs, but we need to get our running game going and the defense needs to play alot better. It looks like they are starting gel better each week. only time will tell. One game at a time, one win at a time.
