How the hell are the Bears going to stop Sproles and Graham?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Comments are good! "Might as well chalk this one up as an "L" and move on. Saints will make what Detroit did to the Bears look tame by comparison. It'll be a blowout, at home, no less." How the hell ...

Does it ever lol. Smarter bunch than I would have given them credit for. I don't think the bears offense will be able to do much against our D though. We owned Cutler last time we played them, with a far inferior defense. Anyone else remember the picture of him getting yelled at by his midget QB coach? That look on his face? I definitely think this defense is more than capable of putting that same look on it.

Miami did the same thing... Its other teams fan-bases seeing things our fan-base doesn't want to see because they still live under the veil of last year. Some of us see it, others want to "save judgement" until week 16... That is like playing pick-em on Tuesday for the week before.

at 4-0 yes it is a trap game.

trap is believing your that good and the other team saying they are not as bad as their last game.

throw records out of the window the day after a game and suit up for the next.

one game at a time

Well, I gotta' admit, I thought Chicago was gonna' be the toughest game of the next four on the schedule until I saw what Detroit (who I consider to be a junior version of the Saints) did to them. Playing at Soldier's Field is still a concern, but as has been pointed out, it's early in the season and the forecast is for a balmy upper-50's ... watch the wind though, I've been getting blown around the lake pretty good here lately, ... and I'd like to get an official ruling on exercising the option of turning in my Pick-em's the Tuesday after games, if I could, .

That onus falls on the creator of that weeks thread.

I didn't create this weeks thread. Responsibility side stepped.

re: How the hell are the Bears going to stop Sproles and Graham?

I actually have the Bears as slight favourites in this game and I reckon they will have a marginal lead in the spread, very marginal but only just.

We are a better football team. Fact. We are explosive on offence and our defence is playing superbly. We may not generate the turnovers they do but we get more pressure and we ship a lot less points.

Having said that, we are playing at their house. Like it or not, Drew is not the player on grass and away from home that he is AT home and on astro. Don't also rule out the inside slant that Aaron Kromer and Jermon Bushrod will be able to offer on the Saints as a whole.

I still think the Saints will win but it is incredibly close. Foolish to think otherwise.
