What Saints Fans are Saying

Recommended Posts

At least they excelled in making some bulletin board material for our "D" for next Sunday night.

 

It's the only thing they excelled at last night! Sharks smell blood in the gulf for sure.

Saints at the dome are scary.

I think we kick their teeth in at Carolina. In order to win at NO....WR need a RB to have a a game we really haven't seen this year

they are scary there, but they are also very vulnerable...esp. to the things we typically do well there.

 

i don't think they can stop cam. they had no answer for the run threat that wilson brought and i think cam is better in that regard. i think they don't have anyone thst can stop tolbert. i don't think they've ever had an answer for dwill who pretty much has relied almost exclusively on his stats against the saints for relevance. he may not show up in many games, but the one team he's always shown up for big time is against the saints and i don't see this season being any different. if we have hartsock back, i think our run game looks very dominant against them. our run game will look better than it actually is against the saints.

 

i think their secondary also gets thinned out because of injury to their squad and and cam's ability to spread out the ball. i also think that rob ryan's defense has been exposed..which usually happens in the second half of the season which is why they have lost three of their last seven and should have lost to the 49ers.

 

if charles johnson is back, i think that with the addition of addison and horton we now have the rotation from hell and that front four will dominate their OL and keep heavy pressure on brees all game forcing him to make mistakes like he made last night. if blackburn is back, i think with the rise of klein that our LB corps is better than ever and will control things consistently in th  middle of the field and add that little bit of unpredictable pressure on brees and help shut down their run game. i like the combo of keek, davis, and mitchell to beat up graham and take him out of his game. i think the secondary does what it did against the pats and keep everything in front of them without giving up much at all in the way of big plays and forcing three and outs and capitalizing on forced errors brees makes because of the pressure coming from our pass rush and the limited options the secondary leaves him.

 

i see us starting out slowish again, but within a couple series finding our groove, pulling out ahead, controlling the clock, and forcing the saints to play from behind the second half and taking the crowd out of the equation.

 

i saw an intereting stat last night that the saints have never come back from a 20+ point deficit going into half time. if there is another team who can do that to them, its us. 

 

i felt good about our chances seeing how san fran did there. i feel great about our chances after watching seattle last night.

 

i don't see this as a guarantee by any means, but i think that we could very well leave ther with a win. i feel confident in saying that if either team is going to sweep the other, its going to be us sweeping them cause i sure don't see them coming to charlotte and winning in less than absolute perfect weather and with the crowd being louder than it has been in years. the saints don't deal well with adversity and that's definitely what they have to finish the season.

I read a couple of the topics over there and most of them sounded pretty realistic about the possibilities of Carolina coming in and mopping up. The realists far outnumber the blind homers.

I will say this...

 

Seattle is a different type of defense than ours. We both are strong but really in different places. They played and matched up perfectly with the Saints. They have big strong DB's that cover like your grandmas neck.

 

I think the offense will be fine but we need to get away from dwill/stewart and our 2nd and 9's.

 

I think we will beat them but it's going to be close....real close.

Cam is our weakest link and our wins are all smoke and mirrors... got it, exactly what I would expect from Saints fans.

The Saints are weak mentality and are going to have a short week. Not only that but we are actually as healthy as we are going to get on for this game. We have played harder games this season and faced better teams. If we ever expect to win in Seattle we need to win this game.

Our CBs are not great but they are physical and as a whole our defense is better than the Seahawks. If we can stop the Pats we can stop the Saints.

Saw the same thing.  Many posters are saying that we are and should be licking our chops to get a hold of the Saints this week.  And that nothing they saw on Monday night should make anyone worried about playing the Saints.

I think @ NO is the toughest game on our schedule. Not by a large margin but I put that slightly ahead of SF.

Saints are two different teams. The tough one plays at the dome

I agree with you.

 

I would feel great about this game if it were here....and I wish we had the first matchup here.

 

Saints in the dome are one of the toughest teams to play....we will need our A game.

So is SF and you have to deal with the wind. I don't think it will be a cake walk but your talking about intangibles and right now in the minds of our players its the biggest game all year, a playoff game.
