Incorrect, Philly was not preparing for the run they were prepared for our pass game, they were not loading the box, our run game will not be as good as last week. Not saying we are doomed but dont be surprised if our ypc goes down

They tried to adjust and still could not stop us. They knew we were going to run. They even said as much. Don't believe me, go listen to the sound FX of the wild card game. I still say if our line plays like they did in Philly, Seattle won't be able to stop us.

Who What Where Why When How.
Seattle might know How. They might think they know Who.

But they do not know When and Where.

We are not going to run the ball every down.
We are not going to pass the ball every down.

Stacking the box and daring Drew to throw.

Can't remember if that's ever happened since he's been a Saint. Most teams try to shut down one or two of the Saints receivers.

I kinda like the thought of it. Sherman's one of the best CBs in the game today but he can only cover one guy at a time. And you know Stills, who is faster than Sherman, will be trying to stretch the coverage early and often. That should open up either Graham or Sproles.

It'll be fun to see the way that plays out.

Don't forget, Sherman has 30+ mph wind gusts on his side

Of course we're prepared we do run everything out of 8 man fronts anyway.

Yeah, I hope the winds die down. That could seriously limit the long ball.

Brees is going to be doing even more checkdowns than his close to 10-11 per game. He's #19 in yards per completion because of the short dump offs.

We all know Brees doesn't have a cannon but is more of a timing and finesse passer with great touch.

How will that play out if there's wind gusts? I doubt Brees will be going downfield too often unless it's a "throw it in the vicinity of Graham who has a height advantage."

I give the QB edge to RWilson. He's always a threat to take off with the rock, has Houdiniesque escapability and with the big mitts and high release, can pierce the winds much better than Brees.

You won't find many games where you'd take another QB over Brees but given the supposed conditions of today's game, the nod has to go to RWilson for the above reasons.

If you think about it critically, you'll realize I'm not typing while shaking Hawk pom poms and wearing Green/Blue shaded lenses.

That's not how I roll.

Considering we led the league in 20+ yard plays this season, I'll take our cannon-less QB... Just depends on what direction the wind is coming from
