They DO Come Bigger - But Not Much

So, we're "only" 3.5 point favorites against Carolina.

Both 9-3. Winner controls their own destiny.

They're on an 8 game win streak. We're still licking our wounds.

This is a BIG game. I'm very thankful we're playing at home, and I think that's going to make the difference.

We're giving 3 1/2. LOL Anybody nervous. "Not I", says Saintfan.

"These are the times that try men's souls" ~ Thomas Paine

This is what you watch football for, IMO, but win or lose, at the end of the day, you're Black&Gold, so it's still a pretty good day ... just got to give her that 24hr rule if you lose in these next several weeks ... "You get 24hrs to mourn a tough loss, no more, no less. After that, you suck it up, put it behind you & don't look back".

Y'all know what I'm talking about, .

That just means that the Vegas gamblers are jumping on the Carolina bus. Not bandwagon, bus. That's a fan-less bandwagon.

Re: They DO Come Bigger - But Not Much

I see them trying to mimic Seattle's game-plan, guess we'll get to see what adjustments Rob has implemented...

Not worried though...

Everyone is gonna' try and mimic that gameplan & Carolina probably has the closest level of personnel to do it ... they ain't gonna' be able to take the audible out of the game, so that's how things get back on track in the Big Easy, IMO. .

Re: They DO Come Bigger - But Not Much

As I flip through my handy dandy book of kung-fu I reflect on the last time we played a team on a 9 game wining streak. I see a note at the bottom.

*Atlanta goes home no longer undefeated.

Re: They DO Come Bigger - But Not Much

That's fair given we just got hammered across the country and are on a short week, plus carolina is surging. In addition, it's a divisional opponent and those games are always too close for comfort.
I would love to have the Saints come out and make it a statement game, but I don't expect it.

I know it's an old cliché but the bigger they are the harder they fall.
