Fans Should Pull For Saints Tonight

Joe hopes the Saints drop a Deuce all over the Packers tonight

On the surface it might seem like Bucs fans should cheer for the Packers tonight against the Saints in New Orleans on Monday Night Football.

After all, the Saints are a dangerous division rival and knocking them down to 5-6 should be a priority, right? Wrong.

The Bucs must beat the Saints at home on Sunday. No question about that. But if the Bucs pull out that Sunday win, they’d rather have the Saints be 6-6 after that game rather than 5-7.

Tampa Bay needs the Saints to stay in the hunt until the final week of the season, when they play Carolina at home. Likely, the Bucs season will come down to the final week, and nobody wants the Saints to have a meaningless game against the Panthers.

Go Saints!

    I’d rather take my chances with the Packers taking care of the panthers next week in GB. That way, we can split the car and atl games and still win the division. Don’t forget the panthers still go to the NYG in a few weeks.

    They definitely dropped a few Deuces. Bucs are going to win out, so all this other toalk is meaningless
