The silver lining of not getting the #2 seed

This team is too hot and too healthy right now to take a break.

I think that the timing of the offense needs to stay sharp and we will get some key D players back next week.

Going with the prediction that has served me well for a number of games now...


Saints 31 Lions 21

Im all in on your prediction,arsaint.
Bring on dem Lions...the Packers 2nd string QB ripped em up so I dont see Brees having trouble doing it either.

We will definitely need to account for him!

If this team can manage to Protect Drew Brees and make their assignments we'll be alright throughout the playoff's and beyond.
This offense if you ask me is FAR better than 2009's.. The Defense is need to keep consistent and stop falling short on assignments.

I'd say the defense is better than '09 if they could catch the ball... Run D is definately better

Our D wasnt great but didnt do BAD today. They did hold a high scoring offense to only 17 points. Detroit, like Carolina, has a high scoring offense and a not-so-great defense. I see the Lions having trouble keeping up with Brees & Co. and the outcome will be the same.

Saints 40 something
Lions less than 30

Have someone untie Suh's shoes and he will get pissed and stomp a Saint and get ejected

And, turn some corners and safeties into receivers, dammit.
