Why are we giving Seahawks news sources face time?

Yep, our offense seems to roll out in 5th gear then downshifts right before halftime.

Re: With the Saintsí defense, you never know what you might get

There are a few more important numbers that make the NO defense stand out above the rest.

OPP Yds per game ( yes true)
#1 SEA
#2 CAR
#3 NO
#5 SF

But
Team Opponent Plays per Game
#1 NO
#3 CAR
#6 SEA
#11 SF

Team Opponent First Downs per Game
#1 NO
#2 CAR
#4 SEA
#7 SF

Team Opponent Third Downs per Game
#3 NO
#13 CAR
#15 SEA
#18 SF

Team Opponent Third Down Conversions per Game
#3 NO
#7 SF
#9 CAR
#10 SEA

Team Opponent Average Time of Possession
#1 NO
#4 CAR
#11 SF
#20 SEA

Allowing less time of possession, 3rd and 1st downs, against a SEA offense ranked from 7th to 18th in the most important stats should give us a huge edge in the game.
The truth is SEA needs home field advantage to look good.

Like most here, I completely agree that the NO offense has serious consistency problems. Usually its the offense that we all asume will put 30pts up, home or away. Being the Best offense for the last 7 years, but for the 1st time, not this year.

Saints proved that pigs could fly in 2009.
Now its time for another miracle SuperBowl and go where no pig has gone before.
