No unless he plays defense as well as he does offense.

No. Megatron is one of the great seven unstoppable, undroppables in the NFL...

But, Stafford is throwiing interceptions wholesale, so maybe the Saints defense can improve on the turnover stat...

We'd have to teach Jimmy Graham to play CB to cover Megatron. He'll get catches, but the Saints have to figure out how to put pressure on Stafford so he makes mistakes.

Well the lions had Megatron play DB this year (to cover last desperation play) so why not?

But seriously, even back in '08 when our DBs sucked bad Megatron only had 1 TD that was called back when a guard or tackle lined up wrong.

Megatron won't kill the Saints. This is like the NYG D line is so scary thread last week.
