Sunday's game promises to be an exciting one.
It only takes one big win to turn a season into something special.
A victory vs. the Eagles would certainly qualify.
I wish I could be there to lose my voice for my team.

Good Luck to those who do make it to the dome.
DON"T SELL YOUR TICKETS

My prediction fo the game:

The Saints will win if: Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush can RUN the football. They both have to grind it for 4 Qtrs. I am not going to put a total on it, but over 150 combined is a must. I liken this Eagles offense to the Colts of years past. The overall talent is not there, but the components are. A QB highly efficent at making plays, a RB who can stretcha 3 yard run into 6-10. And WR's who catch the ball when they are open.
That being said, the best way to control them is by not letting them get comfortable on the field.
Make them try for a play that is not "there" simply becasue they haven't gotten anything done in the game.

As for the Defense:
We need pressure. I have not been happy with the play of our front 7 the past two weeks. Theyt have played well enough to keep us in the game, but certainbly not well enough to control a game. With a QB like Mcnabb you can never simply "take over" the Eatgel O-Line. McNabb has the ability to make a play with his legs at any time. So you need to pressure and frustrate him.
My simple minded solution, bring in an extra DB, send a Stoutmire or Bellamy. For added effect drop Will Smith into spy mode a few plays.

Finally, We need to win the TURNOVER stat catergory. I still remember week 12 of the 2003 season... Deuce fumbliing on the goal line in the first half.

We can beat these guys, they are human.
Plus,
WHO DAT? WHO DAT? Who Dat say they gonna beat them Saints?

RE: Wish I could be there.

To reitterate,
Run the ball, stop the run, win teh turnover battle

I sound like John Madden
Here's a team who needs to score more points than the other team, in order to win the game.
