Why we win / Why we lose

In order for us to win I think we absolutely have to get early and often pressure on Rodgers. If he has any time at all I believe he will carve us up.

We also have to catch the football. Our offense is designed to march up and down the field but along the way we'll have lots of 3rd and shorts. This has routinely been the area where we could on Lance Moore, but without him we'll need Colston, Meachem, & Henderson to step-up. Colston has had the dropsies the last couple of seasons and we all know that Henderson isn't very reliable in the short-passing game.

We need our WRs to catch EVERYTHING thrown their way tonight if we expect to keep drives going and run down the clock.

TO WIN -- these are exactly the same as any game in the current Saints era:

- the "chess match" of Drew moving the opposing defense around the field to where he wants them, then exploiting it (Clay Matthews, the Packer secondary, etc)
- offensive line shows up
- Payton coming up with something unpredictable that works - going for it on 4th, onside kick, 3 TDs by the unknown fullback, etc

LOSE - these are exactly the same as any game in the current Saints era

- Drew with the turnovers, "forcing" it too much
- sloppy tackling
- poor special teams

I couldn't resist
Yes but there is a lot of truth to this than one would think.

I don't care how or what... or even ughly.
Win - no matter how we have to win... when the smoke clears the score showing us with more points gets us the win.

Win-No turnovers.....Oline protects......Dline applies pressure consistently
Lose-Lose containment on Rodgers....Turnovers......Unable to protect Drew

The other team's QB must go down, and he must go down hard.

We need to run for 100+ and we need to get pressure on Rodgers. I think it's that simple.

Win -

Sacks, hurries, knockdowns are limited. Protect Brees!

Run the ball down their throats. I mean 120yds or more.

Malcolm Jenkins has an interception.


Lose -

Minus in the turnover category.

3 and out on the first three drives.

Rodgers is allowed to make plays with his feet.
Yea if we dont run the ball more than 120 yds we are screwed. With all the backs we have if we dont run for more than 120 yds combined something is very very wrong. If we dont run the ball more than 120 yds tonight we will not win a game the rest of the season thats for sure. ONE of our backs needs to run the ball for 120yds.
