Saints/Eagles Prediction

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think the Saints starting defense will get pressure on McNabb. There proabably won't be any blitzing, but I still think our front 4 will get to Mcnabb early and often. I also do not think the Eagles running attack ...

Saints/Eagles Prediction

I think the Saints starting defense will get pressure on McNabb. There proabably won't be any blitzing, but I still think our front 4 will get to Mcnabb early and often.

I also do not think the Eagles running attack will be very effecive against our starting defense. I look for our 2 safties to provide stong run support.

When the Eagles pass I think the only thing they will have success in the short underneath stuff.

On offense I think we will struggle to run the ball since Duece will not be playing tonight.
I think we will go to the screen pass a lot and acutually have some success with it.

When Aaron throws the ball I think he will have plenty of time to look over the field and complete the pass, because I beleive our line is much improved with the departure of Kyle Turley.

I also think Bouman shoud have a big night becuase we are so deep on the O-line and at the receiver postion and he will be playing against the 2nd and 3rd team defense of the Eagles.

Just my thoughts.............

Saints/Eagles Prediction

With being still stuck in the Philly area (job assignment) all of the local talk around here is with the Staley hold out. This seems to be a major concern of the fans and some players but is being down played big time by the office staff of the Eagles. No signs of either side giving in yet.
People are really big on the Eagles this year and are looking towards this game as a first sign of the season to come. This sounds the same for N.O.
Most here think the Eagles won\'t risk injury to McNabb or most of their starters and won\'t play them much. Especially against such an agressive bunch like N.O. (not my words). That\'s just about all from Philly....God I miss Biloxi

coastalkid,

I feel for you being stuck in Philly but at least you will be able to see the game.
I\'ll tell everyone here in Biloxi you said hello. There are about 500,000 people here on the coast now and almost all BIG saints fans.

On the eagles website they said the starters would play for the first full quarter.

Saints/Eagles Prediction

They skeered....very skeered. They won\'t admit it but it\'s true.
Not all of thier starters are going play let alone start, according to Andy Reid. He claims, as all coaches do, that this game means nothing as far as win/loss but is to evaluate new talent and get a better feel for where we are versuses the competition. This is all true but believe me the players want to win...both sides.
I\'m also not overly concerned with the win although I hope we do but I want to see a few things improved upon from last year..such as defending the screen pass, which the Eagles ran well last year, our pass rush improvement, our LB\'s play, our back up RB\'s. Show me improvement in these areas and I\'ll be a happy man no matter the out come. However being here in Philly a loss will cost me soem serrious $$$$$. But I\'m a Saints fan and it goes without saying I have more money than brains!
