Who do you think has to come up big against GB?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Hate to say it, but Brees continuing with the interception-itis from last year, that is my main worry right now. That's the Achilles heel -- trying to be a hero and ending up giving up the easy turnovers. Somebody clobbers ...

Hate to say it, but Brees continuing with the interception-itis from last year, that is my main worry right now. That's the Achilles heel -- trying to be a hero and ending up giving up the easy turnovers. Somebody clobbers a player and they cough up the ball, I can deal with that, it happens, it's part of the game. But all it takes is a couple of Saints possessions to end in those easy, gimme turnovers, the kind that are avoidable, and the Saints will quickly find themselves in a hole. If that doesn't happen, the Saints will be fine.

If our defense plays like 2009 we win if they play like 2010 we are in big trouble. I'm still not sold on this defense. The Saints running game will be the key to this game. If we run it well and no turnovers the Saints will win the game.

I'm not counting on the D stopping them much. A tipped ball here...a lucky strip there maybe, but from what I've seen in the preseason and what I know GB's offense is capable of, Drew and company are going to have to score most times they touch the ball to win. That or special teams will need to provide a spark.

Win in the trenches. A good push from our O-line to allow the guys to pick a crease, square up and bust for 5-7 continuously. That allows the play action to actually freeze somebody, keep them at home and leave the outsides one-on-one and the middle wide open for Graham/Thomas. D-line push to free up the linebackers, containment on the outsides keeping them in 3rd and long. If we control the line of scrimmage, we win easy.

I know, right?! I hate when he does that crap. And never, ever, ever, try to run the reverse again. We are one of the worst in the league at executing it.

Ever...

If Harper has a good game, we'll have a good shot. He's a big asset blitzing the quarterback. With Smith being out, him being able to put pressure on Rodgers will be even more important.

Unfortunately the best way to counter safety blitzes is with a stud TE, which they have.

GW will have a plan, lets hope it works.
