It's going to be windy and rainy. Run the ball and give Drew an opportunity to warm up on short passes.

The not fit for long passing weather is what bothers me. Play calling is a game of chess. When the weather isn't fit for a long pass what is the defense least likely to expect? Watch Drew throw long off the bat.

Re: Did the Seahawks peak against the Saints?

The Seahawks will take the long 1 on 1 passes in the rain. Wilson will try and throw the back shoulder fade or go over the top. They will always do this between the 30s. The last 3 games the Hawks had basically 2 kinds of pass plays, 1 on 1 shots, and play action to TEs on the seam. Obviously, there is the outlet to Lynch and bubble screens to WRs, but those are almost like runs.

Seattle does this low-risk high-reward type of passing game. Because of that they end up punting a lot. Fans wish they would add some wrinkles, like a slant, or cross or something. It is shocking to see them throw underneath.

Seattle receivers aren't that special. How do you Saints fans think your corners will hold up in the play action game against Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin, and sometimes Jermaine Kearse? None of them are household names, but they are play makers. If the Saints blitz like last time, it is likely that Wilson will just chuck up the teardrop and hope his receiver can run under it, you remember the last time. Can the Saint corners hold their own?
