Reason we will WIN Sunday

Recommended Posts

Ok it's the Wednesday before the playoffs and I've read about every reason in the book on why we will/should lose Sunday. It appears there is no hope. BUT... that's why they play the game. So, with that said, I want to hear why you believe we will win. Here are mine:

1) We know exactly what we are getting going up against the Saints and can gameplan for it. They have no reason to change their gameplan considering it has worked thus far. They haven't seen our best yet this season (I hope).

2) Greg Olsen is bound to have a big game sooner or later and the Saints haven't seen him yet this year. 

3) Going off point #2, their starting MLB (Klein) and safety (Vaccaro) are out. The Saints are now playing Manti Te'o and his girlfriend on the back end- we can attack this.

4) Cam Newton has been known to have bounce-back games. From all accounts he was at the Bank late all week and is putting in the time. Business just turned up.

Now get over your new years lull and get on the bandwagon.... because we going to the 'ship

We will win because Cam and Luke will feast. 

The Saints* should win, but we’re gonna pull it off.

I really dig this cats enthusiasm.  I also didn't know that Te'o's girlfriend was in the secondary of New Orleans.

Funchess has to step up against lattimore.  Saints corners have been great.   Can't have another game with no WR production.  Funchess cannot allow himself to be taken out of the game.  We will win though because we will finally see Cam and McCaffery play ball control all game whilst our read zone defense limits saints to a few FGs in critical moments.  Maybe we can even create a timely turnover, and get a splash special teams play.  Honestly I think we need all of those things to win.  But I'll be praying like hell that we do.

I just re-watched Dec. 3rd game and it's amazing how different the game looked without emotions. Watching that game gave me the confidence that we will win this game minus the mistakes made back in week 13.

We need to be able to run the ball and control the clock to have a shot at winning this game.Keeping Drew Brees off the field is very important. If not he will shred our secondary.

We've lost twice against them. This game will show how much they want to win

There wasn't much shredding in the week 13 game. It was more things ;such as, Pep getting the late hit out of bounds call, Clay fumble on the punt return and Kalil missing blocks (Well still no answer for that one) but everything else seemed fixable.

The Saints defense can be exposed.  If 41 points is what we need to score I don't doubt that we can get there.

Two reasons... Cam and Luke.

Cam coming off terrible games always bounces back and carries the load on offense. Gonna happen again this week and it'll be scary for that NO defense. 4 total TDs from Cam with no turnovers.

Luke is probably the best playoff defender in the league right now and it's not even close. We've never allowed more than 24 points on D in the playoffs with Luke and Rivera and I don't think that's changing this weekend. Luke will get a takeaway or two as well and possibly a TD, while shutting down their run game.

 

31-20 Panthers

The loss of Klein and the return of Olsen change everything. Klein had a bigger effect on their defensive success than they want to admit. He was calling plays and making adjustments like his mentor, our own Luke Kuechly. We've still got Luke and well, AJ will be on the sidelines or at home recuperating.

Klein's calls were also a big part of their pass defense success, but he also could worry next to nothing about Olsen. I don't think they'll have that luxury again. 

Our defense has only gotten better, so I think we'll see Pep and Mario feast on Brees. It wouldn't surprise me to see KK bring down Brees once before it is said and done. I also think that they'll use Shaq as a spy on the Saints' running backs to keep them honest coming out of the backfield.

We can and will win this one. And Cam will have one of his best playoff performances in history and we'll remark at how he was able to thread the needle time and time again.

A list stating the reasons why we will win ending at 4.

Now make a list of realistic reasons why we won’t win.

Then compare. And be sad.

We get good Cam. He's on target with his passing.

We get a heavy dose of the read option.

We get a heavy dose of designed runs for Cam.

We go for it on 4th and short at mid field-ish.

Back should pass to Funchess.

Olsen attacks the middle of the field.

Screen pass to CMC in space.

Defense focuses on punching or stripping the ball out at every opportunity.

MAYBE we can keep it close.
