Re: Eagles fan here

Also welcome, I think for us defensively--we have to somehow contain shady, not necessarily stop him, he's way too good for that, but slow him by containing the edges. Our ends over commit frequently, we need to stay home; and we have to hit him every time he doesn't touch the ball. EVERY time, this primarily keeps the timing of the screen game in check (at least to a certain degree). I thought Dallas did a good job on the corners/edge and although Shady had a good game, at least Dallas had a chance at the end. D Jax also scares me and Celek could have a big day. For you, your gonna need to make every offensive play a struggle, if we get into a smooth tempo you are in trouble. If you blitz us, you better make the play, or Drew will torch you. As far as Jimmy, like others have said, it seems he's not into the physical aspect of the game (contact).

Best of luck to you sir.

Re: Eagles fan here

I just hope its a well called game.

We've all seen way too many games decided by a blown call, some very blatantly blown. The Saints have been victims of at least two blown calls that cost us W's, and if you count that absurd personal foul call against Strief in the @Carolina game, 3 games.

Re: Eagles fan here

Our DLine is awesome. Hicks, Jordan and John Jenkins are all Pro-Bowl caliber and Bunkley, Walker and Foster could easily start for many teams.

Our LBs are all solid and Junior is a star on the rise.

Until our backfield got decimated by injury it was also very strong. Thanks to great depth we still have a decent group but it is the way to go if you're looking for a weak link.

If you want to stop Graham all you have to do is do what the Pats did. Put your strongest DB on him and and mug him all day and hope the refs never make a single call on it all day.

Otherwise get a strong rush up the middle and force Brees into errors.

Re: Eagles fan here

I clicked on this expecting a trollfest but I was pleasantly surprised.

I think if the Saints win this game it will be because of our pass rush. Contrary to popular opinion we don't blitz much, we really get pressure with four guys - Cam Jordan, Junior Galette, Akiem Hicks and a couple of rotational guys subbing in for Bunkley at the nose on passing downs. Technically Galette is a linebacker but he is really just a speed rushing DE. Hicks and Jordan are big power bull-rush types and do most of their damage inside.

Our secondary is vulnerable with Greer and Vaccaro both out for the season. Keenan Lewis is the #1 corner and I expect he'll be the guy on Jackson most of the day. I think the #2 corner Corey White matches up well on guys like Riley Cooper and Jason Avant. But Harper and Jenkins on the back end will give up plays over the top.

I am also a lot worried about McCoy, we have struggled against elite running backs and some of our young DL and LBs have struggled with gap discipline at times.

No smack talk here, I think this will be a good game but I am afraid we are going to lose and have to hear for months about how weak the Saints are because they can't win on the road. I hope I'm wrong for our sake but I'm prepared for the worst.
