They still have their week spots. Plus I think we have the strategic edge as we kind of know what to expect from Kromer but he has no idea what our new defense is all about other than what he sees on film. We have a little insight into how hes gonna play the line.

Playing devil's advocate here, but don't you think he's going to be sharing his knowledge of our offense with their defense? It works both ways...

Re: The Saints have the 6th ranked defense.

Kromer didn't work under SP last year, I'm sure he's planned for that. They won't be able to stop Graham, Colston, Sproles or PT all at once. Especially with Cutler reeling from that game against Detroit, he's not a big bounce back guy.

Re: The Saints have the 6th ranked defense.

I do not take the bears lightly one bit. there defense still plays with pride and the offense is like that old chevy parked under a tree. some time it miss fires and sputters and other times it purrrs.

stop the run and force cutler to beat ya.

the OL better do it's job. if that defense gets cocky it will be trouble

Da Bears in chitown are always a danger

Re: The Saints have the 6th ranked defense.

This would be the week to start getting it together up front on the offensive line.

Re: The Saints have the 6th ranked defense.

2 important stats you neglected...

Offense - Rushing yards per game 81.2 25th in the league

Defense - Rushing yards allowed per game 112.2 22nd in the league

Those 2 stats are going to catch up to us. Especially when we play a really good team.

Is that this week or next week or down the line? I don't know. But I do know that both of thing stats need to improve.

Yep, how far we get in the playoffs depends on this here. If not I guarantee one and done.

Re: The Saints have the 6th ranked defense.

The league offenses seem slower out of the gate - but our defense has a high ceiling, so I like our trending upward...

I wouldn't! A Saints' victory is far more important than Brady breaking Brees' consecutive game TD record.
