The Bucs up 31-15 w/ 10 mins left (not insurmountable like we saw last week... but Whitehurst is no Vick) it seems we won't get the help to get into the playoffs this week.

that said... what are the chances next week's game against TB is flexed to Sun. night? How will the result of tom. night's game impact whether the Bucs/Saints game gets flexed to a night game?

i think if we lose to atlanta it could be a very good chance the game is flexed to night because it woud draw the most viewers for a early playoff type game.

I know it's not something Saints fans want to think about, and I am 99.9% positive that this wouldn't happen, BUT....If the Saints lose on Monday Night and then lose to Tampa, you guys could STILL get in the playoffs!

if Tampa beats New Orleans, Chicago beats Green Bay and Washington beats the Giants BOTH y'all and Bucs make the playoffs..imagine that..3 NFC South teams in the playoffs..Bucs would get the 5th Seed and Saints would get the 6th seed. Unfortunately, it would put you guys on a road trip to Philly with Tampa getting the winner of the Rams/Seahawks game.

Like I said, HIGHLY unlikely, but there is still hope regardless of what happens. Good luck tomorrow night! Here's to a competitive game with no injuries :9:

Do you guys use your chat program during the game? If so, would it be safe for me to be there? lol...
As long as your not trolling, you should be good. There's about 30-40 saints fans that meet in the chat. Should be some good conversation as always.

Flex game?

Looking at next week's schedule the only 2 games I see as possibilities are saints/bucs or packers/bears. Chicago could have 2nd seed sown up by then and may rest starters. If I was NBC the saints/bucs would be my pick for game of the week. Any word on when announcement will be made by NBC/NFL?

I watch the game and occassionally comment on it..if it's a good play, I say good play (no matter what team made it)...If there was a missed call and I didn't see it, I will ask about it. But i'm not gonna sit in there and go "HAHAHAHAHA FALCONS WIN!!! WHAT NOW!!!" or even to a smaller extent, I won't sit in there and go "TOUCHDOWN FALCONS!! WOOHOO!!" I will save that for the Falcons chat..

There is NO way NBC will not show Packers/Bears if they can flex it. NFC south division rivals gets no respect compared to NFC north. If they don't flex it, it will be because FOX had the ability to block it.

another thread already up on this topic... and not for week 17... to ensure the best game for the final week is in primetime NBC can pick as late as either tonight or tom. night
They may want to be picking on Tues. night. Eagles result may have Chicago with 2 seed sown up.

Eagles would have to lose to Cowboys for Chicago not to have a vested interest in the game.

So I think NBC will take a chance and pick this game.

Eagles will not lose to Minnesota.

Using that same logic, NBC will not take a chance that Atlanta would have to lose to Carolina in order for the game to be meaningful to the Saints.

So you're an NBC exec in charge of making the decision, it's pretty easy isn't it?

Bears/Packers it is.
