A Little Concern

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; JoanieNTX - that is some dedication there to re-run the game before tomorrow. Can you go talk to Greg Williams please. I hope that it is not just hope on my part but I feel that there are some kids ...

I hope that it is not just hope on my part but I feel that there are some kids stepping up on the Saints defense since the last time Lions outing that ought to reduce some of the Lions effectiveness. Ok, the Lions too have some better personnel coming in.
So to tomorrow. May the Saints bring their A game and get this game over.

Lets put our jocks on straight.

Good points Joanie. It would be idiotic to think the Lions are just going to roll over and hand us this game. I think they're capable of scoring, scoring fast, scoring from behind, defending, getting after the QB, and they're a good enough team to ruin our day. We've lost to worse teams than the Lions, and they can beat anybody on a good day. They're going to come out ready for a fight.

Fortunately, our coach and players have a habit of preparing, and being ready. Every guy in our locker room seems to have his head screwed on straight, and all our guys seem to have the character to get the job done.

All we can do is get in those seats and raise 7 levels of hell to keep our boys fired up, and to remind our opponent who's house they're visiting.

great to have you here... glad you found B&G.

The Saints would have won game regardless of penalties or anything else. Yeah it might have been closer but we would have played it different in the 4th if the Lions had been breathing down our necks.

Yep, after we scored 31, we went into clock-kill.

We rushed 7 times and only passed twice, and that was with 7 minutes left in the game.

Here's to a good game, should be fun. Wish I was there.
Honestly jokeray, we'll have to see. Lions will have to play flawless football AND no personal fouls and YES they do have a shot. Any team would on any given Sunday.

I was just SHOCKED at the attitude and personal fouls and I think the Saints are able to press the Lions buttons... don't think they won't try again tomorrow.
We'll see. Will be a great game to watch.

I saw it last night too Danno and you're right, we watered it down.

I am not angry at you Joanie. No one is.
I agree with x626x and others. The Saints can win this game.
Yes, Detriot is strong team.
Absolutely yes.
The Saints are well aware of where DetLions are the strongest and the weakest.
We can only trust the Saints will work it tomorrow as they have been for the past 8 weeks.

Being the Saints fan that I am for over 30 years I can't help but be nervous about the game. Last year the first game I didnt feel nervous about in a LONG time and we got our asses handed to us (SEATTLE). Detroit is dangerous. And have all the confidence in the world right now. Stafford is playing lights out!

I see Payton coming out in the first 15 (script) with a healthy dose of the run. Much like he did against ATL and CAROLINA to end the season. Remember we will have no Lance Moore and it may not seem like a big deal but it is. He has the best hands on the team and it our reliable possession receiver. Need Meach to step up like he did last week. Not expecting much from Devery.

As long as we jump to a 10-14 point lead we should be fine. I think Stafford is at his worst when he has to force the issue and/or come form behind. He is mistake prone. Also he's made of glass...Roman folds his ass one good time and he may be on the bench. And for the love of god don't let Megatron have a big day.
