    Over/Under

    To say Jimmy needs to show up when it matters is not accurate or sound football analysis. If a team puts 5 guys on JG should he still show up? Seattle for instance played man to man bump and run single coverage on all of the Saints WR on every down last year daring any of them to beAt them deep. This should be exactly what a WR wants. Last years Saints receiving core had no one who could get open vs tough man coverage. Jam Jimmy at the line and give help over the top at least doubling and often triple teaming him. Crowd the line of scrimmage with 8 in the box and dare the Saints WR to beat you. This was a great gameplan vs last years Saints. I believe the addition of Cooks will defeat this strategy as I hope I get to watch Richard Sherman try to cover Cooks one on one. I bet he wouldn't try to jam him unless he had safety help.

    Wow, I feel that way too. Then I wonder, am I jus concocting these scenarios in my own head. Remember, the Ram's for instance are in the same division as AZ, SF, and Seattle. Their division record is 1-5, which means they're a pretty good team.

    I used to bet dogs--occasionally they'd run Stake's Races, like tournaments where Kennels would enter their best, from all grades. They would run with the big dogs, and they'd eliminate all but the top few in each couple of races, then run the rest. Each round you could follow those who dropped out, and the longer they ran with the good dogs, the better they did when they got back to their grade.

    The Ram's have been running with some good dogs, and let's face it, the Jet's have a pretty awesome defense, AND the guy is Ryan's brother--that makes you think a bit.

    I sure hope you're right, along with an entire fan base I'm sure.
