People say that a lot, on the internet, but it's really not entirely true.

The only times that rookie or unknown "nobody" quarterbacks looked really good against the Gregg Williams Saints D, was when the QB on the field wasn't the same QB that the team prepared for during the week (Seattle playoffs, Titans game), or else when the QB was changed mid-season and there wasn't a lot of film on them (Arizona, Cleveland and the Rams all made a major QB change only a week or two before the game, for example).

When the QB on the field is who the Saints are expecting to be there, rookie quarterbacks tend to look okay but not great, if the Saints were prepared for them. Josh Freeman (38-7), Cam's first game against the Saints, and Matt Stafford in the '09 opener for example. Stafford played okay that day, he made some nice plays, but the game was still a total blowout. That's kind of what I see happening here on Sunday, I see this as being very similar to that Detroit opener in '09.
