1000 Yards

I honestly think, that if things go right for our opponents, the Saints could give up close to 1000 yards rushing over the next 4 to 5 games. Probably 100 or 120 points on the ground too. Basically, it all depends on what we do in the first two drives or so. If we don't score, and our opponents jump up, it's all over. We'll have to throw to catch up, which will probably mean 3-and-outs without running much of the clock. Our opponents will want to control the clock and will likely just run it down our throats. All 3 of our next opponents definitely have the ability to throw the ball and do it well. But with our run defense, why? San Diego, Kansas City, Denver... NFL records could be broken by all of these teams. Haslett could be fired before we face another NFC South opponent. In any case, I expect us to give up at least 400 yards and 30 points every week for the next month. Happy Monday!! LOL ;)

WhoDat, you\'re living in a dream world. We all hope Haslett is going to be gone at least by the end of the season, but in reality he may be here another year. Does anybody know what his contract buyout is? I hope Benson is selling a bunch of cars!!!

I\'m not so sure, but you may be right. If the Saints get pounded by SD, KC, Denver, and ATL, and if they allow 1000 yards of rushing, well, I think that\'s enough to make just about any owner dump his coach.

The worst 4-game skid I can remember in Saints history was the end of \'01 when they allowed 160 points in December. The next four games has the potential to be worse, not only by points allowed, but in many other statistical categories as well. I truly believe that if SD, KC, and Denver are dedicated to running the ball, all 3 COULD go for 300 yards against the Saints. That\'s not to say they WILL, but they COULD, IMO.

hopefully, with fakir and mckenzie starting, it\'ll help to take pressure of the secondary. maybe we\'ll be able to concentrate more on defending the run, and if haz is making the calls, he\'ll be bringing mo\' heat to try and save his job.

If your team allow that much in 3 games you need to banned form ever putting on a headset in the NFL again. Good Lord!! Go back to the PAC-10 where you belong!!

...scary thing is it isn\'t exactly impossible. I agree though. Brown and MM as our starters will definately help.

Of course convincing Venturi the game is in Guatamala, then making sure he goes there would help too.

Why all the gloom........we are in pretty good position.....Mike M seems to be picking up the scheme....Brown is all over anyone he covers..........Grant is due to \"break out\" on the QB................Deuce will be on fire (after the fullback permanently lines up)...and Brooks starts to get Boo, Pathon, Horn, Hall, Stallworth and Conwell the ball on rotation (provided they hold it).................My only concern is our LB.......we suck...........call FSW and see if Cox wants to come back......ching

Isn\'t is obvious?

You\'re kidding right?

All irrelevent. Whodat made the point very clear: We cannot stop the run. We are going up against 4 teams that are in the top 10 in rushing, each averaging over 130 YPG. We are dead last in stopping the run.

Any team that can rush the ball at will, can and will dominate the game.

Shootouts can be entertaining. However most likely the Saints will end up on the losing end of such shootouts because of the defense\'s inability to get off the field.

Dude, take the rose-colored Billy brand goggles off, put down the WhoTang, and take a look. This team is the football equivalent of the LA Clippers. We always got loads of young talent... and that always amounts to exactly horse poo.
