TM, I think you'll learn where your pass rush is this week. We've been
a rollercoaster in a lot of areas, but we consistenly keep Drew Brees upright. If you can (God forbid) get to Brees, you'll have something to hang your hat on.

Wade Phillips is a tried and tested D coordinator from hell, and you're going
to like the results.... Im hoping your defense doesnt "gell" this week.

And if Drew does happen to torch you, it does not mean your DB's are weak. He torches a lot of defensive backfields, using a blinding assortment of receivers. If you've never heard of Pierre Thomas, you will Sunday. At some point, he will do something impressive.

All BS aside, our defense is, in my opinion a big ?. So if you run over us on the ground, you might be on to something, but I wouldnt make too much of it.

If I were laying odds, I'd have us -2 for home field advantage, and thats about it.

Hi y'all. I have to disagree with Mike. I think we'll learn where our passrush and secondary is in this game. We'll also learn something about our pass protection. It looked like Tate struggled with blitz pickups last week and that could be a problem. I see us passing enough to keep your D honest and if y'all start stacking the box, we have a pretty good play action/bootleg game.

I think we'll scheme to try and keep Brees in check and dare you to run. That could be dangerous since y'all have Thomas, Ingram and dat gnat, Sproles. I think you really improved your running game in the offseason.
Hopefully we can keep Brees under 300 yds and maybe get a pick or two. Don't laugh. This is my dream.
The outcome should depend on who's D shows up for 4 quarters and who wins the turnover battle.
I'm glad I'm not a betting man.

AlaskaSaints, that shoes scam cracks me up. Someone has tried it on me every time I've been in the Quarter.
I'll be pulling for you guys after this game, so here's to a good game with no injuries.

Speaking of gnats, what did y'all do with Trindon Holliday? He's always on the training camp roster every year but when the season starts you don't hear anything about him. Is he on the PS, on the team, or cut?

Never mind, I just looked it up and see he's on your PS.

I seriously do think this will be a test for us both teams on both sides.

regardless of whether miami or indy are any good, I remember going into
the Falcons game in '06 2-0, and we hadnt beat anybody yet either. When we beat Atl, we knew we had something going on.

A Regular Season game in our Dome will be different than Pre-Season game in your stadium. The noise is crushing.
Our DL is completely healthy, and we get our best DL Will Smith back for the game.

The difference in this game just may be the home field advantage.

Agreed. That +3 you get for playing at home might just be all the difference in the world.
