So far the Saints have only beaten 1 team with a winning record. they started this season with a fairly easier schedule than the Cowboys did. yes they are a good team BUT not as much as they are hyped up to be.

Plus the refs really protect Drew Brees, he got 2 roughing the passer calls on the Jets game that was pure bullcrap. If it was Romo, NO WAY he would get that call!!

I don't think you can over rate Brees. He is a good down the field passer and our secondary has been getting torched all season.

I think we could possibly win this one if we can play them like we did Denver. I think Romo can outscore Brees. Our D must stop them some this game though.

Jerry it aint Rocket Science. "Its the Offensive Line Stupid"

 

And for the next four seasons, Aikman would be protected by the biggest, baddest offensive line in NFL history.

320-pound left guard Nate Newton, "The Kitchen."

The other starters, with weight and nicknames: right tackle Erik Williams, 324 pounds, "Big E;" Allen, 326, "Odd Job," from the character in the James Bond movie "Goldfinger;" center Derek Kennard, 333, "Big Baby," as in Huey; left tackle Mark Tuinei, 305, "Pineapple," because he is Hawaiian.

Saints are over-rated every year but that's because they're good.  Explosive offense and a defense that's improving under Ryan.  I wouldn't rule them out of the Super Bowl race in January, even though almost every good team in the NFL is in the NFC.

Playing at home, in prime-time, after a loss is not a good way to face the Saints.

everything involved in this mediocre, parity-filled league is over-rated.

do you realize the crappy cowboys could be holding the #2 NFC playoff spot if they win against the Saints on Sunday Night?!

lol

Doesn't matter whether they are overrated or not.   What matters is our play calling and execution.
If we don't run the ball well or score points like we should we won't win.  But that comes with every game.  On any Sunday, Monday, Thursday... a team can win.    We have to make the most of our time and I don't feel that we do.  

I'm still agitated over how long it takes us to ADJUST our game plan to make drives successful.
We should have contingency plans already drawn up if a team doubles DEZ?  If they double DEZ and WITTEN?  If they double DEZ and TWill?   etc....   We should see this early on and move to that plan rather than waiting and wasting an entire half of football.


The opening drive of each game seems to determine our game production or outcome.
We need to come out on fire.  Come out like we are prepared.   Have short passing plays in the mix and running plays and screens rolling.   Introduce some things early so you know how they will attack it.  Toss in a 4 or 5 wr set in early and see what they do.  No huddle.  We don't appear to set the opponent up.

How can that be?

We have 4 losses and the Saints only have 2 with a 3 way tie in the North with 3 losses?

So exactly what is the Saint's rating? How was it calculated, who calculated it and how is it higher than it's true intrinsic value? Do you have a link to show all teams' ratings? What is the Cowboys rating and how does it compare to the Saints' rating?

We will have 10 total games and some of these teams will only have 9 games completed because they already had a bye week. That is the only math that makes any sense...

It still doesn't add up. I think he simply made a mistake.

 

No way we can be the #2 seed after week 10 with 4 losses.

 

NO would have 3 losses and Seattle and or SF have 1 and 2 heading into week 10 even if every team in North lost with 3 losses each.

 

Best we can be is the #4 seed regardless of the outcome against Saints.
