31-21 Our defence seems better than last year preventing shootouts. Our offense is slowly getting back to the power it was before last years skid. Special teams is shakey especially since punters and kickers or avoiding Lewis. Saints pull away in second half.

with Dale Carter and sedrick Hodge out, I woudn\'t touch this game with 3-1 odds. I don\'t have a clue what might happen.
I\'m hoping we suck it up and play above our heads because of the injury adversity.
That does happens a lot.
Then again McNair may absolutely pick us apart. He\'s so hot and cold.
They will bring their A-game after being humbled by Indy. we\'d better be ready.
This game will tell us a lot more about our team than the Texans game did.
Anybody seen the odds?
I hope we\'re huge dogs.

Whether we agree or disagree; its all for Him.

This game has the look to be a grind it out on the ground game. I wish it was in the snow because it would then be a one of those real good madden game.

I expect Tenn to run the big boy up the middle often. They will go with the long drawn out drives to wear the saints defense down and George could be picking up 3-4 yds a carry late in the game. McNairs finger may be another factor in Tenn having more run plays.

To counter this the saints will have to give Tenn a big dose of our big boy. Saints will have to pound out long drives to keep the saint defense off the field for some breathers.

This game will be won in the trenches but could be lost in the secondary for both teams.

Tenn. is a good team coming off of a degrading loss. I agree that with McNair\'s injured finger we are likely to face a more run intensive game than usual, but if our defensive front can build on last week\'s much improved performance, I think the SAINTS can make a good game of it.

Brooks needs to be accurate with his throws (Tenn secondary is better than Texas\'), has to spread his passes between multiple receivers and he has to mix it up with some deep balls to keep the secondary spread. Duece just has to be Duece and I believe he\'ll get his first 100+ yard game of the season.

My prediction is 24-17 SAINTS.

Go SAINTS!!!!!

I think this week will give us a good idea about what to expect for rest of the year. The Texans game turned out about like you would expect, the Seattle game hopefully was just a bad day.

I think our defense is going to have a LONG day with all the injuries we have to try and deal with.

And finger or no finger, Steve McNair scares me, but a \"playing through the pain\" Steve McNair terrifies me. The more hurt that guy is, the better he plays it seems like.

Saints 30 Titans 20 (if the same Brooks shows up)

Having lived in NASHVEGAS for the last 9yrs (thank God I`m back home now) and knowing head coach Jeff Fisher, our boys will need to play mistake-free ball. Adelphia is a fairly new stadium and it will be packed and loud. Weather could be a factor depending on which way Isabel tracts after landfall. Fisher will try and rattle Brooks early. Titans will bring a rush and if it gets some success they will not let up. My guess is that the Titans will focus on #26 and try to put Brooks in 3rd and long and bring the heat. On offense, look for the Titans to spead our defense out and run draws and screens. And look for McNair to run on some keepers. I`m trying to get tickets to go, but finding tickets to a Titans home game is like finding $5.00 parking near the superdome on a sunday homegame.

If the O can stretch the field like in the 2nd half, I like our chances. They did it against 2 pretty good corners for Houston. The key for the D is pressure from the front four. If the D-line can get the kind of pressure on McNair that they did vs. Carr it\'ll be a good day. Some lafayette area radio people think the Saints have no chance. People are starting to kind of sell them short. I like coming from off the radar, that\'s when we\'re more dangerous!

This game has blow-out written all over it.
Titans embarrassed by division rival,
Coach blasts team\'s effort in local papers.
Injured Saints team coming to town.
Saints too happy about winning one they were supposed to.

I don\'t feel good about this one one bit!

(Head) Titans 31-17
(Heart) Saints 24-21
