then Deuce should be able to break a few big ones. I think if the offense plays its usual game and posts around 30 points and the defense can manage to play a solid game we will be smiling at games end.

I feel good about this week\'s game. SF has a good team but I think the Saints are a little better. One thing that caught my eye was the punt return for TD they gave up. Believe me that guy was no Michael Lewis. I don\'t think they have the secondary to hold up against our receivers even if Donte doesnt play. We will put a lot more pressure on Garcia. On the down side--Terrell Owens-We gotta stop him. Also we gotta figure out how to stop a screen play. If Keyou is back I think we are a little better at corner. Hawthorne is probably out this week. Maybe he can use a week off to take alook at his game and maybe pull something out of it. He was terrible against the skins. The interception was a tipped ball that went up for grabs but he failed to defense a pass all day. Look for our special teams to dominate and our offense to shine. Won\'t know about the defense until the injury story is cleared up as the week goes on.

I am looking at a win for the Saints
If the defense gets a little more healthy I am looking for a big win

I think the saints may have seen the best front seven outside of Tampa that they will see all year. Duece didnt have as good of a game as the stats show. He had the two big runs, but was shut out most of the day. I dont think the 49ers defense will be able to stop Duece or man up against the offensive line. With Bronson out for 6-8 weeks the safeties shouldnt be cheating up much. I see Duece having another big game and the Saints walking out 6-1.

But that\'s the great thing about Duece. He didn\'t have a monster game against Washington. For a while it looked like Washington had him stuffed. But then, bang...48 yards...boom 15 yards...he pops another big run and then your looking at another 100 yard rushing day for Duece and another win for the Saints. Duece is a threat to go all the way on every down. I think this throws the opposing defense out of sync, especially since New Orleans has a pretty good passing game meaning that the defenses can\'t load up in the box like they would when we had that Ricky Somebody guy. San Francisco doesn\'t have the defense to stop the Saints. Our biggest challenge will be stopping their offense. I think our defense is showing up a little more every week and will be up to the task.

Saints win and move to 6-1
