This could be a trap

I hope not but we are likely to destroy them but when we are likely to destroy a team we tend to be overconfident and it bites us. Well that was the case in the early Payton days and with rookies now on the team that could return. Also, Ellerbe not playing I am concerned about.

I agree!

SP needs to make sure they are NOT overconfident and that they have the right mind set before the first snap!! Then we will be ok!

Ellerbe is a huge concern. Good God if he could stay healthy. That dude really is good. I still think we have enough to beat them, if we give maximum effort. That is what is comes down to. If we give the effort needed. If over the last 2 weeks we learned what was needed, in terms of effort, then I think we can win.

I don't consider it a trap game only because we are not 6-1 or 7-0. We are 3-4, I don't think we can really get trapped. I felt we had a chance to lay an egg in Indy due to the divisional rival game on Thursday night that we won, but I don't think we will get trapped. That said, your concern is real, we have laid eggs going back to last year. We have had a tendency to come out and put no effort forth. I keep hoping that is behind us and we are ready toplay week in and week out.

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Re: This could be a trap

A trap game is when you are playing an obviously inferior foe. The Giants are not an inferior foe

There is no such thing as a trap game this year for the Saints.

When your 3-4 and lose a 27pt lead the week before you have no business being overconfident.
