1. Finish Strong, win out, and clinch a Wild Card spot 

Okay, now we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves.  But there is certainly nothing wrong with dreaming, and or asking Santa Claus for something so big.

Look, the New Orleans Saints are a bad football team.  Their toughest opponent (Carolina) is next on the schedule, so maybe a win could bring a little boost of confidence.

The Saints’ remaining schedule is not something I’d necessarily call difficult, and it’s any given Sunday, but completing a task like winning five-straight and clinching a Wild Card berth is near impossible for this far less than impressive football team.

Maybe the Who Dat Nation is on Santa’s nice list, but I certainly wouldn’t get my hopes up.  This team needs a lot of help in almost every aspect of the game.  This will without question take a Christmas miracle.
