Re: How We Will Beat Seattle

We will need two cornerbacks as good as Antoine Cason and Jerraud Powers. The pass rush is also going to have to crush it.

We are also going to need some luck.

Seattle is beatable.

Re: How We Will Beat Seattle

A few comments to some posts I see.

In all of our losses and wins both on the road and home our passing heavily out weighs our rushing except for last Sat. That is how we play.

We run when we can. I do recall PT getting knocked out of the SF playoff game on the 5 yard line in the first Qtr?

While incomplete passes might kill the clock.. When you are averaging 7.9 yards/attempt passing but 3.9 yards/attempt rushing.... You throw to move the ball.

Time of possession isn't a litmus test for winning. Eagles had the lowest ToP of all teams by nearly a full minute 26:24 and had the 2nd ranked offense in yards and 1 win more than the league leader in ToP the Chargers.

You run when you can run, you pass when you can pass. We don't turn the ball over, and take what is given.

This team is built and plays differently than past teams. More defense and less offense... It may be different but it works well together and gets the job done.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: How We Will Beat Seattle

Force turnovers, make no turnovers.

But I love how you correlated the historic Payton trends in playoff losses with the SEA losses this year. We should all remember, AZ beat them in their "impossible-to-win-in" house by running over 40 freakin' times. Our running backs are much better than AZ's, and AZ's O-line isn't as good as ours. If Carson Palmer can go in there and do it, Brees can do it. SEA is already looking past us to the winner of the SF/CAR game. Excellent...

Arizona has a running game. Their O-Line is, I would say, comparable to ours -- they certainly aren't worse. They also have a pass rush and a secondary that defended some mind-blowingly accurate throws. Watch that game again. Carson Palmer did everything he could do to lose that game. Arizona's D PLAYED IN THEIR BIG BOY PANTS.

And, yes, they ran the ball -- EVEN WHEN THE RUN WAS NOT WORKING. Wore Seattle's D down. They also got some VERY LUCKY calls by the refs, too.

We'll need to bring our A game -- and some luck too.

Commit to the run in 2014 = winning.

Wore Seattles D down are the key words, thats what the run game does. The big men up front getting crashed and pounded on time after time will slow down eventually. Our O-line has to out perform them and good things will come.

I think Brees needs to check his ego, be a team player, and understand hes not going to win the game on his own. Be methodical, and take the sack.
Um, I don't know where you have been for the last few seasons but there are some new type quaterbacks in the game right now, and they are winning football games ( with their legs ).

There is talk of this type QB "changing the game". Notably, three (3) of these QBs are in the playoffs this season: Russell Wilson, Cam Newton and Colin Kapernick.

I am a Saints fan -- hello. Note my name -- WHODATINCA? I'm just arguing for Drew running the ball just a LITTLE more. That's all.
