Think the Saints will repeat Sunday's performance against the Rams?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The Saints said last week that they wanted to become the team they were going to be starting with that game. If that's the case, then yes, I'd expect them to put up at least 40 + points to the ...

Just hope we win. Little worried because we are away and we blew up last week. Plus we have two big games coming up after this one. I am hoping we don't come out flat.

I don't care if it is by one point, just get the frickin W!

If our secondary actually tried to stand up a ball carrier instead of diving at his feet, I would not be scared of anyone. Driving high through a tackle, though you may not bring the guy down, will delay the runner long enough so that your teammates can close in and stop extra yards.

You'd be surprised how effective that is and how little it hurts.

Just a thought.

oh, yeah, 42-10.

I really don't see how we can loose to these guys, they have absolutely 0 offense, but God I have seen worse.

Hopefully, this game won't be close.

BUT... last time the Saints played the Rams in St. Louis in 2009 (BB-before Bradford) it took a great game from Reggie Bush, a kickoff return TD from Courtney Roby, and an INT from Usama Young to win 28-23 (too close for comfort). Two of these three players no longer wear black and gold.

Let's hope this one gets settled before halftime. Maybe the Saints will get the ball first for the first time this season?

If all they have is Jackson then they are one dementional. This will present the opportunity for us to focus on the running game. As for the Pack being shutout in the first half by the Rams, I think the Saints are better than the Packers despite their 7 -0 start. The Saints will score at least 40 & the Rams will score no more than 7.

We need to tackle... Stephen Jackson is deadly... What we have to do is play so if Bradford is out then they are definitly gonna try to run the ball... Can we hang 40+ on them sure.. But I would like to see a goose egg on the defensive side for us....

My Prediction = Saints 42 Rams 6

Harper seems to be the one guy back there who will actually bang with the bruisers, and steps up to the challenge when presented. That gut is always soft and tender, more so than a knee to the Riddell if you miss going low.
Bite down on that mouth piece and go for it! Oh yea, keep your eyes open.
They should be getting good practice licks from Ivory.
I keep forgetting the new "full pad" limits in practice.
They couldn't tackle last year so that can't be it.

I don't want just a W' I want a convincing win over another horrible team. Our defense needs to feed off energy from last week and match or beat their performance. We need to make another statement sunday. ESPECIALLY THE DEFENSE. TWO DATT!!!!!!!!!
