We have injected enough new and or different blood on both sides of the ball that we will not take a siesta one Sunday. Perhaps Byrd and Bailey can seed some cold weather tolerance into our defensive backs. This is Cooks and the rest of our draft picks first year so nothing is a "home game" until next year. Cooks also played in Oregon and should be accustomed..

The cold hurts old athletes, getting younger may help that.
@ CLE is September 14th, so cold weather shouldn't be the deciding factor, although this has been one jacked-up year for weather forecasting and it could be a freakin' blizzard that day.

I like your rationale about injecting Bailey & Byrd for the DBs to provide leadership in preventing a Sunday siesta, and I like the fact that those 2 are more than accustomed to cold weather, outdoor games (cold weather, outdoors...wow, that was profound...I'm an idiot).

Anyways, Payton's teams have shown in the past with taking at least one Sunday siesta against an inferior team home or on the road...let's hope this year that doesn't cost us home field or for that matter a division championship. And help us all if it costs us a playoff spot...this site will melt down and we'll be pulling people off of bridges.

If we manage to avoid the trap games and win the games we're supposed to win by a good margin, it's a credit to the level of concentration this coaching staff has gotten this talented group of players.

Coordinator McMahon excluded, of course. He is an idiot.

Re: Im optomistic about this years team but...

I agree with Oak. We aren't flying under the radar anymore.

1. Drew Brees is in EVERY discussion on Elite QBs.

2. Bountygate - f---ing Gotohell

3. SP - since he became coach we have been in the discussion. Even in 2006. Since then he has only gotten better.

As long as we have coach and Drew we will never fly under the radar. So I hope that's for at least 10 more years.
