Some are saying that Deuce will have a tough day going against the Ravens defense, could be but T. Bell with the Broncos rushed for over a 100 yards a couple of weeks ago in Denver and he didn't have a Reggie Bush on the field with him (Bell)
With the Saints having two weapons in the backfield I think we have a chance to rush for over a 100 yards Sunday..
What you guys think?

Rest In Peace JoeSam, thanks for everything my friend.

i think duece has a shot at 100 yards the way he has been playing. personally i hope bush has a decent day running the ball we all know he is going to get his yards receiving but if he can put up some nice rushing yards along with duece i think it would be hard for the saints not to win the game!!

It would be really cool if both Deuce & Bush score a rushing TD..

RE: Will Deuce be able to run the ball well against the Rave

Duece will be below his season average but above the Ravens average against. I'm seeing 3.3 yards a carry on about 20-22 carries. That's about 70 yards or so. Add another 30 or so for Reggie & we'll break 100 yards total.

As for a rushing TD. I don't see us going two games without one. The Eagles held us to passing TDs (which are fine), but I see at least one this weekend.

I'm ready for the game to begin, I can't wait for this one, more so than the Eagles game, I guess because this will be a good test for our offense, a tesi I think the Saints will pass.

LTF, I know what you mean. I think with their D, the Ravens could really test the O-line. I want to see how they handle themselves. I think they'll give up a sack, but other than that I think they'll do fine. This team is going to go as far as the O-line can get us. From their play so far, that's going to be pretty far.

Billick talking about the game against the Saints

" This will be like nothing they ever heard," Billick said. "They are the sweethearts of the league. Everybody loves them (Saints), and deservedly so. You go in and beat them, you might as well go and beat up on Mother Teresa."

I have the feeling this is going to be Reggie's breakout game. Everyone's going to stop buying the hype and focus on Deuce and Drew, giving Reggie a chance to really break it open and show everyone what he's all about. It's coming soon, just wait and see.

The Saints should have a decent day vs the Ravens, sort of like they had against the Eagles. Deuce should do no worse if not better barring reinjury. Bush will have a breakout performance one day, and it may be this one.the only thing that bothers me about Bush is the way he carries the ball. He doesn't cover up the ball or switch hands very often leaving him prone to turn it over. If he ever gets a lot of carries from scrimmage i expect some turnovers till he gets coached out of those bad habits. Hopefully the coaches are very aware of this.
