Eagles Next

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Keep Drew clean and we've as good a chance as anyone to beat the Iggles. But if Drew is running for his life we're done. This one is all on the O-Line if you ask me (and nobody has)....

Re: Eagles Next

I'm hoping to see a lot more of CJ Spiller, Willie Snead, and Josh Hill. Spiller is the ex factor for us. Snead is the new Lance Moore.

Re: Eagles Next

Don't let Sproles or Jenkins make game changing plays.

Re: Eagles Next

ok this is the game to make some solid strides on both sides of the ball and get focused. falcons are next and we need this win, lets not make the final drive the winning drive and lets see if the saints can stop anyone in their two minute drill.

OL needs to step up, open up holes and protect Drew better
Rob needs to stay away from freaking zone in the final two minutes of the either half. idiot

Re: Eagles Next

We are catching them at the right time.
They've gone from NFC fav with GB down to a team that lost to the Redskins.
Get up early, and make some plays to slow down the offense

+1 on CJ. Interesting stat I read on PFF yesterday on the Eagles ...

They rank 29th in yards per play.
31st - rush yards per play.
24th pass yards per play.
29th 1st downs per game.
31st 3rd down pct.

This would be a good weekend for the Saints to get their mojo going.

Re: Eagles Next

There is an opportunity here.
Living in the area I listen to the 2 Philly sports talk stations and the doubters (including grumbling from some players, like Murray) are not feeling Kelly's coaching.

Things to capitalize on:
1) The Eagles O line is a shambles. Pass protection is shoddy at best and they have not been able to open up the holes for a rushing attack. That leaves them heavily reliant on Bradford to get rid of the ball quickly. Our D could have a BIG day if they can get pressure.
2) The Eagles secondary is HIGHLY suspect. They paid big $$ for Maxwell who doesn't appear to be anything close to shut down in coverage. Can we PLEASE see some deep passes?
3) Their D against the rush is currently 20th, but every team has had success pounding the rock. Give it to Ingram and Spiller and let them grind them up!
4) Their WR's are weak. Their top receiver Jordan Matthews is rangy but a work in progress. Round them out with Riley Cooper (slow with suspect hands) and an aging Miles Austin and I believe our now healthy secondary can keep them out of play.

The key to most of this is whether our O line can keep Drew upright with time to spare in the pocket. If they give him a little more time than they did against Dallas, this is a winnable away game!

On a personal side note: PLEASE SHUT THESE IGGLES FANS UP!!!!! If they win, it's going to be a loooong week for me in Eagle Hell!

GEAUX SAINTS!!!!!

That's a false hope. He's taken quite a few good shots so far this season. He's not going anywhere from a shot or two. Now sack him 4+ and that's a different story!
