Sunday @ Oakland
 
I'm curious to see what all of your thoughts are on the game plan the Saints utilize in this one. The Raiders defense is horrible against the run and the pass. I actually see us running the ball down their throat with Ivory, Ingram and PT. I would not be at all surprised if they rushed for nearly 200 yards combined while setting Brees up to pick them apart. Also, the Raiders could be playing without McFadden and Goodson at RB this week, so I expect Carson Palmer to pass a lot if they are out.

I seriously think our worst football is behind us. I don't see this as being a trap game or anything. This has the potential of being the most complete game the Saints have played all year. Reaching the .500 mark would be such a relief after the way this season started.

Maybe. Maybe not. The Kansas City game was the wake-up call, if anything. They performed better the next week against Green Bay, even though it was a loss. Since then, the offense has been clicking and the defense has improved gradually week after week.

They utilize a zone blocking scheme, we always have trouble with zone blocking teams...

Dennis Allen is a former coach, no doubt he has inside knowledge about our offense...

Palmer is not an all-out terrible QB, we may have trouble defending the pass...

Did you happen to catch the Saints-Broncos game? That was probably the worst game played by the offense all year!!

I could see this game as a replay of the KC debacle, or the Saints could re-enact the beatdown the Ravens put on them last week!

I full expect the Saints to win this game, but I have said the same thing all season!!

45-18 Saints!!!

Wrap up. Don't let Moore and Heyward-Bey make explosive plays on us.

Would like to finally see us dominate all 4 quarters. On paper this looks like an easy win, however... any given Sunday anything can happen. I can remember a few years back when the Eagles were heavy favorites coming into Oakland and falling flat on their face.

Focus. Dominate.

It's supposed to rain out here on Sunday - in fact it's supposed to start on Friday and rain through Monday. The field could be an issue, and it could play to our advantage, especially if their backs aren't 100%.

If it's nasty we can just pound the ball.
although, if Ivory is going to start fumbling this will be the weekend.

Having lived in Cinci and watching the Bungles for twenty years I have had the opportunity to see Palmer in action on a regular basis (when the game wasn't blacked out). Palmer is a pretty good passer given time. The last several years in Cinci he took a real beating because Brown doesn't like to pay players who aren't flashy, such as O-linemen. So, he is gun shy. His last two years here his elbow was so bad the deep pass was not available. With good pressure our DBs should be able to get a few picks.
