Not going to be a pretty game vs. GI-aints

77 hours out from kickoff, the weather forecast is for severe thunderstorms associated with the remnants of the tropical storm that is currently pounding Cam Newton's Panties. 80% chance of rain, high winds.

What is the gameplan? How do we think it will affect the defense? Do we have a running game? Do we have a defensive line?

Not gonna be pretty fellas. Their defense has improved with Snacks and Hankins making a tough duo to run on so don't expect much from Ingram. Our defense has possibly gotten worse since we played them last year thanks to the Breaux injury. Gonna take another Herculean effort from Drew.

I think the stiffer the wind the more chance we have and if it's raining will make the footing a little more difficult. Remember if not for one play our defense would've held Oakland to 92 yards rushing and we let Oakland score 25 points in 18 minutes after Breaux was a no geaux.

Heavy rain
Run Ingram and Hightower into the ground time snd time again. Kill the clock and keep the defense off the field

Re: Not going to be a pretty game vs. GI-aints

FWIW - Stats of Brees/Payton vs Giants:

2015 - 52-49 Saints
2012 - 52-27 Giants (No Payton)
2011 - 49-24 Saints
2009 - 48-27 Saints
2006 - 30-7 Saints

Brees sure hasn't had a problem lighting up the G-Men over the years. I'm sure NY fans are praying for heavy rain .

Re: Not going to be a pretty game vs. GI-aints

I can see another really high scoring game.
My worry is not Brees putting up numbers but the numbers coming the other way and the potential for Brees to think/need to do too much. When he has been forced to be overly aggresive it can lead to turnovers. The good thing is now though he had receivers that will go and get the ball in Snead and Thomas.

Its simply going to boil down to the pressure that th dront 7 can get to not expose the front 7. If they can force Manning to just get rid he could easily put up 3 int's. Get enough pressure and we can win a shoot out. Dont and you are leaving inexpierenced backs exposed to Beckham/Cruz/Donell and Sterling

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

the weapons have changed but with the exception of 2009 and 2013, Brees has always had to carry this team on his shoulders due to a horrific defense

Re: Not going to be a pretty game vs. GI-aints

I agree with that.
Im more talking on the game when its been bad and the offense has failed and he has had to be very aggresive and its cause him to make silly picks. Its not criticism of him him as he has had to try and make something happen. Its the type of QB he is,they will be games of T.O
