Sundays Hall of Fame game

I am sooooo ready for some fkn Saints Football... I am also torn about how excited I am about Sundays game.


I can see it now:

Saints take the field... Who-Dat... let get it on!

40 seconds later... Who in the hell are those players?


So my questions to you: How much play time do our starters get on Sunday? Do we go out there and play everyone to get a feel or do the New Orleans Saints take the field and dominate in this game to make a statement to Goodell and the NFL that they cant keep us down? This is out first chance with the spotlight only on us to show the world we will be victorious!

Depending on Chases hand, will Drew start or will a third stringer?

I think our entire starting defense should be on the field all preseason... They have new sh1t to learn, and they have new team mates to learn.

Who coaches? Do we go with Vitt, or prepare for the first 6 games and use who will be coaching then? "That guy" needs a break in period.

This is anything but a standard preseason for us, normally we are looking at set schemes, set coaching and who starts is the only question... This year there are multiple questions unanswered and a lot of exercises are needed to get them answered.

I realize this thread is nearly entire speculation but good discussion.. I have no doubt that 19-0 will be the answer, just curious about how we get there.

I'm definitely ready for some Sunday night football but I probably won't pay any more attention that I do for any of the other preseason games. I can say this. I'm going to be in New Orleans this weekend and I'm definitely going to vary my daily jogging path to take me around the SuperDome and through Championship Square.

On that note: On which side is the statue of Steve Gleason. It's up on the main concourse... right?

In the picture, I could see the Macy's parking garage which makes me think that's where it is but isn't that where the Vietnam Memorial Statue is?

I honestly am making a best guess. If I head to the post office today or tomorrow I might pass by and see if I can eye-ball it.

Can't tell if that's where it was placed or dedicated.

Saw this video too: Gleason's punt block memorialized outside Superdome | wwltv.com New Orleans

I thought it was supposed to be NFC vs. AFC and we're playing a conference opponent. We also just played the game in like 2007.

What's the back-story again??

The starters should come out and put 30+ on the board in the first quarter since I am sure all we will hear about is the bounty crap, then they can say this team is pissed off, watch out for them this season.
