Forecast: Saints headed to playoff showdown with Falcons
Tennessee (+3.5) vs. New Orleans: You trust this defense on the road? I wouldn’t trust the Saints defense against Billy Joe Tolliver and 10 folding chairs. I’ll give Gregg Williams credit for at least failing each week in a different way. He’s tried the 4-3, the 3-4, not blitzing, blitzing, and still teams drop 400 yards on the Saints as easily as I just crushed a family size bag of Doritos.

To all of you screaming, “The Lions only scored 17 points. That’s all that matters!” The majority of the Saints best defense against Detroit involved waiting for the angry and confused Lions to set themselves on fire. If I accidentally set my curtains ablaze and my house burns to the ground I can’t call it stage one of house renovations.

The Titans are 22nd in yards per game and 21st in points so in theory they shouldn’t be unstoppable. The problem is Chris Johnson is back and the Saints give up 4.9 yards per rush. I fully expect the Saints to slow Chris Johnson and allow receivers and tight ends we’ve never heard of to look fantastic.

Tennessee on defense is middle of the pack in yards per game but sixth in points allowed. Drew Brees will look mortal, the defense will look like it always does, and the Saints will experience death by field goal.

Titans 27-24

I think my man Junior is in for a very good day. Play the edge to contain and blitz the lb. I'm worried about Cam Jordons end. I hope I'm wrong. We will need speed on the ends for this game. And to he!! with this. Saints by 6.

He is saying some of the same things we have been saying.

He ignored the fact that CJ is getting goping UT we have been better against the run.

It should be a good game. If we don't make a good showing in this game I dont see anyway we could go to GB - in January & win.

I see a loss. As unfazed by lions pre-game, unfazed here, too. Outdoors, cold, two game lead, on the road. Yeah, showing up will be a challenge. Probably 14 down before Vilma finds his helmet. Brees might throw three gopher balls and Ivory puts two on the turf.

Just start drinking now, let the anesthesia take hold before the horror.

Damn xan I thought I was pessimistic.

Are you guys for real? Maybe I am not as worried cause I have Hasselback on my fantasy team and have first hand knowledge of his crappy play. His play has been going down since Britt got hurt. None of his receivers are speed guys. Why do you think they went in the crapper and are just now starting play good? Tennessee does not have enough fire power to hang with us.

The game plan is simple. Stop CJ and we win, plain and simple.

Some of these "fans" go with the saying of "expect the worst and there will be no surprises!"

As long as the Saints win, I don't care if Haselbeck throws for 1,000 yds and CJ runs for another 1,000!

The only good team the Titans beat was the Ravens. We all saw SF vs Ravens. Both have no offense to speak of. It was like watching 2 old ladies fight, painful but kind of funny.
They lost to PiTTrapers/Failqueens/Been-gals/Texans
Next will be Saints :)

GW will amass 20 personal foul late hits on "Hasel broke beck mountain" to pay him back for the playoff, and Johnson will be allowed to run 3x for 100 yard TDs so he will vomit himself out of the game, and have to go eat something.

Besides according to my research, last time we played them the NFL wasn't even using Pads

There is still a possibility of getting the number 2 seed if sanfrancisco loses another game. If the Saints get the number 2 seed they will be off the first week of the playoffs which has proven to be very good for them in the past. I cant remember what the record was after a bye week but I know it was more wins than losses :-) That would mean they would play either the cowboys or the niners at home. Either way they would still have to play the pack in Lambeau unless the falcons, lions or giants beat them. What a Christmas present that would be. Packers lose and the NFC championship is played in Neworleans. I know what is on my Christmas wish list. Geaux Saints!!!! Who Dat!!! Two Dat!!!

I don't trust this defense from one quarter to another, much less from one game to another. Do we have the talent to be better? ABSOLUTELY, do we have the INTELLIGENCE to be better? Ahhhhh, that is question.
