Re: Where they rank: Saints at Seahawks

They are severly lopsided. It has worked well for them but I'd rather have a team in the top five on both sides.

Re: Where they rank: Saints at Seahawks

that's all the more reason why i feel the saints will beat the seahawks by a score of 37-17! opposing teams are only averaging 18pts per game against our defense. our offense sputters on the road however going into this game i feel the saints have the taste of revenge in their mounths. i feel this saturday the offense will be poised, silence the crowd early and beat those seahawks in a convincingly fashion.

Hauschka has been inaccurate of late. So, happy they get a taste of Hartley-phobia.
