Juan's World: Saints keep hope alive

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Welcome into Juan's World where the Saints beat the Buccaneers 31-24 to keep hope alive. The hope I'm speaking of is the that this win will 'eventually' lead to a Saints playoff appearance next year.

Next year.....sounds like we keep reading from the same script from this team. Once upon a time, 'wait til next year' came with a chuckle and a hope of making it to the Super Bowl some day.

Now, it comes with a scowl because this team, this franchise is as far from making another Super Bowl as they've ever been. Saints fans just want to play deep into January again.

Today's performance against the Bucs served as another reminder of how frustrating this team has been this season.

Win one, lose one. Win two, lose two and what do you have? A seven and eight team that found out it was 'out' of the post season discussion before today's game against Tampa Bay even kicked off.

Three consecutive years of no playoff football is like that lump of coal that you just don't want but realize that, maybe, you truly deserve.

After-all, it's the Saints and....as they say, we'll just have to wait til next year.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Juan's World, Juan's World. Excellent!!!!

    One of the major storylines to develop in the Saints 36-20 loss to New England, was the fact that the Saints benched safety Kenny Vaccaro midway through the game. Now after the game, Vaccaro said he didn't know why he was benched. Twenty-four hours later he still doesn't.

    After a 37-7 thrashing at the hands of Mississippi State, LSU fell out of my poll this week. The Bulldogs enter the rankings at No. 23. The national AP Poll still has the Tigers in, barely at No. 25 We knew BYU and Chattanooga were not worthy competition to gauge how good LSU indeed was. This past Saturday in Starkville, we got our answer. Both the offensive and defensive lines of the Tigers are thin. They were flat-out embarrassed by State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald.
