Re: Sizing Up the Saints' 2013 Opponents

Speaking of sleepers, I have this feeling in my gut, that the 49ers game this year is going to be kind of like the famous "rematch" of the Vikings-Saints NFC Championship game in the opening week of fall 2010. Hyped to the skies, everyone makes a big ballyhoo about it, probably be a marquee Sunday night or Monday night game, over-the-top hype surrounding it, and then it's gonna turn out to actually be kind of a boring, dull, snoozy, uneventful game, like that Vikings game was, which the Saints win without any real drama or excitement.

That comes out to 11-5 actually....but I'd still be happy with the result, particularly if it gets us the division.

Yeah, I had 3-1 versus the NFCW but that appeared a little overly-optimistic.

I changed it to 2-2 but didn't change the total.

Anyway, 11-5 and the #3 seed still works for me too.

9-7 I think we are still a year away from making it back to the post season. Losing Kromer alone will hurt our offensive production a lot more than most think. Thats before taking Bushrod out of the equation. I really think our season lives or dies by the production of the O-line, even more so than the defense maybe. We have been swapping out lineman every year for the last few years at a position that consistency is key. I fear without Kromer we are really going to start seeing the results of that.

Re: Sizing Up the Saints' 2013 Opponents

there is not a team on the list the saints offense can not beat if the LT position is addressed.

question is can the defense make enough stops to give us the win

I'll take that 14-9 snoozefest win over a 45-42 barn-burner that the Saints lose lol...

And I could definitely see it being the first SNF game of the season. Guess we'll find out in about a week.

SNF week 1 should be 49ers vs. Saints. The Niners being the team that fell short in the Super Bowl, and the return of Sean Payton to the sidelines. That's hype-worthy.
