Re: can the saints beat the colts in the opener?

Well Lets see. I have a little wager on it and i say WIN!! Tony Ugh will have trouble defending Peytons Blind Side. Therefore, Clancy and HT will be pushing the inside of the pocket. Can't scramble there is Grant. We Were gashed in the championship game by long runs sustained run drives. We can stop the run, Addai is a beast, but is more dangerous after the catch; I know I followed him through college. We will WIN mark my words!!!!!

Re: can the saints beat the colts in the opener?

Someone posted earlier that David should cover Reggie and MM should cover Harrisson. Just wondering, wouldn't MM match up better with Reggie and David match up better with Harrison? Also someone posted that Payton gets rid of the ball to quickly for us to effect him. I don't think it's the sacks as much as hitting him in the mouth everytime he passed the ball that will make him nervous in the pocket. The saints have a great chance to win this game, but if they don't take care of the football it will be a long night.

I just don`t see the Colts as the better team in this matchup, I`d say it`s a pretty even matchup after you evaluate all the weaknesses and strengths of each team. Who ever wins the turnover battle wins the game. period.
With that being said, I look for the Colts defense to concentrate hard on stripping the ball, just like Chicago did in the NFC Champ game.

The Colts had problems stopping the run last year and IMO they'll have the same problems this year, they'll have a very hard time stopping Deuce up the middle.
Last season Ron Dayne had over 200 yards against the Colts, the Texans beat the Colts in that game due to a great running game by Dayne..
I love our chances this year against them...

If we can't cover Wayne then we will lose....same thing that would have happened in the SB last year. The Colts lost most of their D save for the DE's and Sanders. They lost both DT's. We have the No.1 Offense so we can score. I say we beat the poop out of them.

Bump and Run and Tarik Glenn is gone. We put pressure on his blind side and they'll lose. C'mon Manimal!

Re: can the saints beat the colts in the opener?

Everyone of you know that Payton is spending time every night looking at the Colts-Texas film and the Colts-Jags film. His game planning is going on right now (and has been for quite a while) and will involve heavy doses of Deuce up the middle and play action passes. He wants this game and the Saints will win on the road IF - and only IF - we don't turn the ball over. Turnovers turn his plans into one-dimensional catch-up.
