If we don't bring it...
 
While today's win was encouraging, it still puts us a game back of the Vikes, which means fate is not in our control.

Next week against the Eagles is going to be one monster tough game to win. I'm watching what appears to be an outclassed and outmanned Philly team open a real big can of whoopass on Dallas. Their defense is solid, their offense is just as difficult to manage as any that's given the Saints trouble this season.

We're having a hard time beating the likes of AZ, I don't see much of a shot against a mean and fearless Eagles team. Not liking the looks of this.

Wow! It isn't that bad. We gave Arizona 7 pts to start. And Patten was very very clumsy i.e. unprofessional on the one-handed carry that led to a 2nd fumble.

In many ways, the Saints cruised this game. Yep, we weren't perfect. We gave up some plays. But I didn't see "hard time beating the likes of AZ" today.

At the mo', (3rd Q 13 mins to go) the Eagles are doing very well AND Dallas is stinking. But it is only a 4 pt game. Romo gets stronger asthe game goes on. So we will see. At least the game is giving the Saints a chance to scout the Eagles best plays.

The Saints are in that familiar territory that we all hate. Sure they can win out but again their fate hinges on other teams losing to make the playoffs. I'm hoping that the Saints can get out of the 8-8 average that they have maintained for so long and bring forth some consistent winning seasons.

So here I go again...
Go Bears. (I dislike the Bears so it'll be hard to cheer for them.)
Go Bills. If the Bills beat the Giants next week (the Giants play the Patriots the following week) it will benefit the Saints if they do indeed win out.
Go Ravens. I just don't like the Seahawks.

Most important: Geaux Saints!

Not to get into jinxing territory, but I have always said that I never worry about the "tough" games with the Saints, it's the easy ones they always seem to give away.

I'm an eternal optimist...



with an ulcer by the end of regular season. :p

The Saints just need to win their last two, and not worry about the rest of the NFL. My guess is if they can pull it off, things will take care of itself. These next two are going to be about as tough as it gets, lets hope for a miracle.

All I want for X-mas is a repeat of the 8 minute miracle drive that did in the eagles in game one of last year. That was a thing of beauty.

I wouldn’t call it “a can of whoop ass”. It really wasn’t that lopsided a game.
You have to consider that Eagles-Cowboys is a big in-division rivalry, I’d say of late bigger than Cowboys-Redskins. The Eagles were playing for their season, the Cowboys weren’t.

The thing about the Eagles defense, they’re smart. The DC always defends the strengths and attacks the other team’s weakness. The Eagles went in to stop the Dallas running game, and then expose Romo for the poser that he is, and they did.

Here’s the key for the Saints offense: contain the blitz. If they can find a way to deal with the blitz, then it’s daylight.

Here’s the key for the Saints defense: stop/contain Westbrook. I don’t think Mcnabb is all that in the passing game. As for having trouble stopping the Cardinals, the Cardinals’ strength (passing) is the Saints weakness (defending against the pass). I’d take Warner, Boldin, and Fitzgerald any day over McNabb, what’shisname, and whothehellishe.

Add to this, that the Eagles have to be emotionally spent after the last 3 weeks, then getting bounced off the hunt last night… It is VERY important that the Saints score first, and early.

That*s some funny stuff there, but then most things that are really true are quite humorous. Thanks for the laugh* :)
