Re: WIN IN SEATTLE? LOSE IN SEATTLE?

This game is a riddle.

On one side its hard to see us winning in Seattle, but then again you see the fact that maybe Seattle has had an easy schedule.

Seattle is beginning to remind me more and more of the Falcons, lets see if they can choke it up like the Falcons, afterall, TB hung with them in Seattle, for all we know, we could completely blow Seattle out of the water.

But you want my opinion, some games are better to be lost, this one is probably one of those games, that way the potential to win the rematch is that much greater.

Even if we did win, we swipe the #1 seed from Seattle, but how long would we keep it with our schedule? You have to hope Seattle drops 2-3 more games.

But if we lose this one, I can be ok I think. Just wanna slap Cam Newton silly... But I am getting ahead of myself.
Its gonna be tough. If we come out healthy I will be happy. A win would be great, but I think the way its shaking out the Panthers are the ones we really need to worry about.

Regardless of the outcome, both teams will still be considered 2 of the top 3 or 4 teams in the NFL.

Its a coin flip.
Yeah I have it 20-17. Whoever wins the turnover battle has 20.

This is a good and valid question.

Seattle could conceivably go on the road and lose to San Fran on a short week.

So if that were to happen, New Orleans could split with Carolina and win out and keep that #1 seed. Otherwise we would have to run the table all the way to 14-2.

Seattle having to go play the Giants on the road could be for NFC East title implications. So don't sleep on that game just yet.

Saints will take care of the Rams and Bucs and at the very least split with Carolina. So I see us going 3-1 down the stretch.

My buddy the Cowboys fan was talkin' that smack before the smackdown. He was not entertained (I was very much, but my smack talk afterward had weight.)

Re: WIN IN SEATTLE? LOSE IN SEATTLE?

We have lost two on the road outdoor cold weather games.

Anyone know what we are doing to prepare?

Hope to be there in Seattle - have seen games there before - it is loud and seattle this time of year sucks! It ain't that bone chillin cold like Buffalo or Greenbay but a slow damp chill that kills ya!

Win in Seattle


The Saints have all the drive from the 2010 playoff games that we almost came back from

The o-line has been playing better each week and the d line is jelling

Hopefully we can keep russell wilson contained and not given much time to throw

If Drew doesn't try to float one over here and there we should win the turnover ratio

The 49er and even Falcons games were good tests

I see Colston continuing to be a bigger factor

Re: WIN IN SEATTLE? LOSE IN SEATTLE?

The Thurmond suspension has now swung the pendulum towards the Saints.

Can we take advantage of them being down 2 CBs?

I would think so.

49ers beginning of the season were pretty terrible before turning it around a little bit, this is when Seattle got them.

Most believe that they should have lot to Houston, many of the games Seattle barely got by was a product of the other team going completely stupid near the end of the game, Houston, STL, and TB should of probably beat them, that is difference between 10-1 and 7-4.
