Keeping up offensively should not be an issue. In fact, it should be the other way around. We have an elite quarterback, 3 solid running backs, a deeper core of receivers, and two solid TE's.

The Texans have a second tier quarterback, Ben Tate, a banged up Derrick Ward(who is questionable), Arian Foster who will not play, (though all world) one receiver, and a pretty good tight end who has not found his groove yet.

We have the advantage offensively.

Don't let them make big plays on special teams and we should take this one.

We should be able to run on them providing Payton chooses to do so. Seam routes to Graham should be money. Schaub likes to roll out to his right, hello Will Smith. Greer needs to blanket Johnson and maybe roll Jenkins to his side as well. Texans TE's are average so we should be able to cover them. If we protect Brees from mario, we should win this game by 10.

Tate is the guy I don't like, against us that is. He's the one that can keep Drew off the field, and wear the defense down. If we keep him stacked up all day and force 3rd and long most of the day, we take this one easily. If we "let" Tate grind out 4, 7, 12 ... and breaking tackles in beast mode, we will struggle to beat this team. Ball control will rule the day.

For the most part if you look back on the Saints defense. When they know they have to stop a running back they usually do. It's the running backs that they don't prepare for that eat their lunch. Pretty much always contained AP with the viqueens. And usually it's 1 cutback run that produces the big yardage against us.

He's proven you wrong in about 16 out of his last 19 games.

Not in coverage ...sorry Danno i know you love Harper..but the guy is a liability in that department..im pulling for him to do better. I still think we overpaid..like you do about Morestead...Except Morestead never got OKIE Doked twice in one game...an important game at that..
