I am an Eagles fan and season ticket holder living in southern New Jersey. I was thinking of buying tickets to the monday night game and of course rooting for the Saints. I think it is extremely unfair that Giants ticket holders get to buy tickets before the general public. I am sure most people have other things to worry about than home field advantage but if any Saints fans have a season ticket account # they want to lend me I would like to go up there and root for the Saints.

Plan and simple... The Saints are playing for their city. I have read and heard all the stories and interviews with Horn, Stallworth, Conwell and the entire team. These guys are playing with everything they have come game time. They are now America's Team. From Horn text messaging Stallworth and telling him to ...handle our businees and ride for our people. To Conwell going into a Wal-Mart and buying a new engagment ring for a man with no money to give to his wife, to Stallworth clearing the shelves at a Wal-Mart. These guys are playing for NO and they are gonna ride, PERIOD!!!

This game has a 7 point spread, which I think is crazy. These teams always play super close games. The only way I see Carolina covering is if the mental fatigue sets in late and the Saints fall apart.

I like Carolina this year. I think they are set up to have a good season and I pick them to win the South. The Saints are even more of an enigma now than ever. This could go 2 ways....increased focus and passion leading to a team that finally lives up to the potential. Or the wheels falling off and life being a bit too much for the boys to take.

Having said that...I was inspired by what Horn said. The idea that they will ride for the city....that makes me want to put on a helmet. But....that won't keep him or Dante from dropping a ball on 3rd down. The difference may be their ability to immediately bounce back. Maybe they'll say...it's just football, let's do this.

Carolina has a really well rounded football team and a better defense than us. That could be the difference.

Yasoon's keys to the game:

1) Neutralize Peppers. I fear a backside rush where he smacks the ball out of Brooks' hand.
2) Which Jake shows up? He was off the last time we saw him, let's hope it happens again. We need Mike/Dwight to pull one out of the air in a big spot.
3) Saints run D. No explanation needed
4) Beerman vs. hehateme. Haven't heard this mentioned...not sure why. Close games in the NFL are often determined by a key play on teams. We look primed for a breakdown in coverage. Let's all hope that the little man from the big easy comes through the wedge with a fury.
5) AB has to pick his spots and let Deuce be the man. Work some playaction and loosen the secondary with some deep balls. Get the ball out on time and don't run backwards.

1st Note , Hope that everyone in NO is as well as can be and I hope that the football provides some temporary peace of mind for you all.

that won't keep him or Dante from dropping a ball on 3rd down.
Well No way that's happening on 3rd down, 1st.....maybe!

Anyways Deuce always seems to step up against Carolina and that will have to be the case here too. Control the clock early and don't let Car get off to an early lead as happened last year in the 1st encounter. On D I really like our Agressive secondary. With Brown, Mckenzie and Smith all ready for int's, it's up to the front line to get pressure on Jake and make him throw those lame ducks he's capable of. With Smith,Grant and Howard pass rushing I like our chances. after setting the tone with the run, Open up the play action and let Donte loose to test the Secondary out!

See how things go from there and enjoy the win!

JENGA....I Win!

Jake wasnt off vs the Saints last time, he just had no time to throw and got injured early in the game. The last 10 games of the season Jake threw 22 tds and 5 int.
The Panthers oline is key, they have looked great in preseason. Mike Wahle is a beast, Gross is back at RT and doing great like he did in 2003. the only question is Wharton who is a 2nd year vet but the first time playing LT, in preseason he looked really good and rather good going up against Rucker. I dont think the Saints will have the same success against the Panthers oline this time around like they did in week 16. 3rd stringer Matt Willig was playing RT and got owned all day long.



also Deuce had 22 yards against the Panthers in there 1st meeting so i dont think he ALWAYS steps it up.

Wrong. He missed moose wide open deep at least twice. Watch the tape. Jake had a bad game. I'm no Jake hater....I love his game, but week 17 of last year was not a good game for him. He fumbled all over the place. And we took advantage.

You're obviously a Panthers fan and that's fine. But you gotta admit when your boy has an off day. If Jake hits those throws to Moose, ya'll are in the playoffs.
