This is the game I thought everyone was talking about in this thread. LOL

And I'd agree that the Giants game was in no way a trap game and that Tennessee might very well be the trap game.

I thought the same thing. This was a trap thread for me. I finally realized from a comment that it was about yesterday, and then I saw the date.

Yeah, there's no way to define yesterday as a trap game. We own the Giants and I thought we might blow them out, but they aren't bad enough to overlook. They just can't beat us in the dome.

Not so sure... The Titans are having QB issues.

I wouldn't say we own them and they can't beat us in the dome...we were a penalty away from losing that game. Glad we came away with it though.

Re: This could be a trap

The Dome magic seems to be coming back. But, the injuries to Swann, Ellerbe, Kikaha, and with Byrd and Vaccaro getting nicked up, it is a bit concerning. Throw in three emotional wins in a row and anything is possible. It will truly be a big test for the team.

True. But we all know how well we perform (or don't perform) with lesser QBs...

We were a penalty away from losing? We were tied before that penalty put us in field goal range, and it wouldn't have been close if it weren't for the Saints blunders and all the penalties thrown AGAINST us.

The Saints have blown out the Giants in the dome going back to the Haslett era when Joe Horn pulled out the phone. Yesterday was the first close game against them at home in a couple decades, and we still won. That's why I said can't beat us in the dome... They haven't. That doesn't literally mean it's impossible for them to beat the Saints in the dome ever again.

The Saints won at home, 45-7 in 2003, 48-27 in 2009, and 49-24 in 2011. We also beat them on the road, 30-7 in 2006.

The only blemishes were losing to them in the katrina season on the road in what was supposed to be a home game, and in 2012 on the road when the team had just fallen apart. We've won 5 of the last 7 overall, and 4 were blowouts.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: This could be a trap

It was a trap maybe because we didn't know what to expect. their running game was a mess, they had one playmaker on offense and that's it. I thought given how they looked against teams like Dallas, Philadelphia, Buffalo(even though they won), Atlanta that with how our defense was playing we should be able to throttle them but an expected good defensive game turned into a offensive shootout and to me that defines a trap.

Can our defense really play as bad another week against a weaker offense at home again? The offense is my concern here because Tennessee is good at exposing flawed offenses.

Re: This could be a trap

This one's the test for the CROWD.
Its a noon start, which is always tough for NOLA, but this is the game we
need the crowd to step up... get there early, start early, and raise 12 kinds
of hell till the gun goes off.

DO YOUR JOB - CROWD!
