the only ratings I disagree with are them getting the O-Line edge and the running backs being even.

I haven't seen them play however...

How are their LB worse than ours?
Our special teams are great.
Our OL protects the QB, runs blocks and doesn't hold.

Offesively I feel we have a big edge, although they do have some playmakers. Defensively is a toss up, I just hope ours shows up. Special teams I would say goes to us. I also think that this may very well end in a kicking game. I don't know who they have as a kicker and hope he misses alot. I think we will win by 6 or less. I also don't like us on grass but I think Kasey will be fine on grass.

I hope kasey just avoids the grass. We already had a kicker get suspended for banned substances.

This is probably the toughest game left on the Saints schedule. It's a road game on grass in chilly weather. Johnson is an elite back who's coming into form and if the Saints have a breakdown in assignments or effort, he will take it to the house in the blink of an eye. Hasselback is a veteran QB who isn't going to be tricked or rattled by the Saints looks. The Titans are playing for their playoff lives. The Saints have a big game NEXT week. The Saints are going to have to show up or the Titans, who clearly are the less talented team, can easily get the upset.

No doubt. This is exactly the kind of game that we have to win if we're gonna be serious SB contenders since we'll have to play a couple on the road outdoors (SF and GB most likely).

Brrrrrrrr...........I know it's tough playing rugby in cold weather where the action is non stop and you don't get a chance to cool down. I can't imagine what it's like alternating from hot to cold and having to run out on the field ready to bring your best.
