The counter to this will be that Drew's FF numbers will be down if he doesn't have to throw 45 times a game

Since I don't play FF this is just fine with me. Since 2006 the Saints record when drew throws 35 attempts or less is over 90% wins.

In two weeks or so, I won't be a bit surprised if Bradford aka Captain Check down is sacked at least 3 times by the Saints D. "Pressure" might do him in. Vikes defense is top notch but I'm sure our offense will be up for the task.

27-17 Saints .

After seeing their "dress rehearsal" the other night...Bradford may be reduced to potted meat behind that o-line. I'm going to say 5 sacks on opening day

I haven't given any other teams the eye test though and this is going to be a tough division. I can tell you with almost certainty we aren't looking at the same old Saints. I see a competitive NFL team.

I see mis matches on that Vikes O line. Bradford could be in trouble if Kikaha, Okafor and Cam get into rhythm.

If we dominate them up front I'll stay out of the political forum for a whole week!
