The Bye Week prediction

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Steelers did get to Cutler a couple times last night and Forte may have sprained and ankle. Jimmy Graham will own the Bears if they try to cover with Briggs. He's a good LB but he can't drop back in ...

Steelers did get to Cutler a couple times last night and Forte may have sprained and ankle. Jimmy Graham will own the Bears if they try to cover with Briggs. He's a good LB but he can't drop back in coverage as well as Urlacher did.

Re: The Bye Week prediction

I'm still not drinking the South Florida kool-aid. They beat a very banged up team, at home, on the last play of the game. Atlanta gave them every opportunity to win.

I think we will really rattle Tannehill. He's reckless back there, and I don't he will be able to handle the noise level.

Re: The Bye Week prediction

Ok ... anyone want to go out on a limb and predict our record at the BYE? Sort of like the question in the title?

Re: The Bye Week prediction

Bears give up a ton of points.

Patriots are hot and cold. Even their hot is nowhere near ours.

We win both.

Re: The Bye Week prediction

I see absolutely no reason why this team could not be undefeated come the bye. Not the same thing as saying the team doesn't have any flaws, but:

Can they win ugly games when things don't go their way? YES

Can they hold a lead, and hang on? YES

Can they score, when they need to score from behind, to get the W? YES

Can they make the other (good) team have a bad day? YES

Given those things after only 3 games, the sky is still the limit here. Until proven otherwise, they are kicking a**. There will be time to worry about the fatal flaws and Achilles Heels and ticking time bombs later. My biggest complaint about yesterday is that apparently Rob Ryan did not burst into a bar somewhere and buy another round of drinks.

Re: The Bye Week prediction

The only thing stopping me from saying 6-0 is that I don't want to get ahead of myself. I want to be a little cautious but....

I simply cannot see us losing against the Dolphins. That could get real ugly and show the Dolphins up.

Bears away is not an easy one but if our D keeps doing what it does then our offence should easily take care of business.

Patriots D is improved but I doubt their rookies are going to be given much grace and Brady could be smashed a number of times.

So 6-0 is probably what I do think, but 5-1 is what I will say to give myself a cautionary loss in there somewhere. Bears is hardest game on paper but if we 'have' to lose one, the Patriots game is the least damaging and allows us to head into the BYE week to recover and reverse any problems.

Repeat after me... "It is ok to get ahead of your self, it doesn't affect the team one bit. There is a huge difference between being positive and a delusional Falcons Fan... "
