Let them focus on Peterson and Brees will light them up like the sky on the 4th of July.

Not if fan of this talk from Peterson. Slightly out of contex? Probably. But why give them bulletin board material?

I like the idea of finishing these guys off in the 4th quarter with a 10 play 10 minute drive...

Just hammering away with the run game with Peterson...

Re: Adrian Peterson: I want to stick it to the*Vikings

I think a lot of people are really underestimating the challenge the Vikings are going to be.

It's definitely not going to be a cake-walk facing that defense, which might have actually improved since last season.

Their offense will be better as well with Cook running the ball and actually an OC running the show, who'll play to the strenghts of the players.

I hope the Saints are going to win, but it's not going to be a blow-out.

Well, we're in the minority about our chances on Monday night because the rest of the football world likes the Vikes...

Kenny Vaccaro better not get on back on the plane if he lets Sam Bradford embarrass him the way he did Roman Harper...

AP and Mark Ingram will be like Bread and Butter, Milk and Cookies, Thunder and Lightning, Catholics and Wine......well you get the message. They will open up the passing game for sure. Like that needs to be anymore open than it already is!

Well the Vikes have arguably the best 4-3 NT against the run in Linval Joseph and very fast LBs in Kendricks and Barr, so it's probably going to be hard to get to the second level with the runs.

And if Ingram and/or Peterson can get past the LBs - the secondary headed by Harrison Smith is no slouch open-field tackling.

If we're getting past the linebackers in the running game, then it doesn't really matter who's in the secondary. We've already accomplished what we need, if we're getting to that level.

If we take care of the ball and control time of possession, 20 points should win this game. Sam Bradford just doesn't get the ball down the field and that offensive line is sketchy, at best. If the Saints defense has improved as much as we think it has, then it will be an especially long day for Bradford.

I think the Saints will score more than 20, though. I think we can get at least around 27 or 28, despite the Vikings solid defense, because I have a feeling the Vikes D will be on the field for a large portion of the game. If we are somehow consistently running the ball 5 plus yards, then I think it could be a blowout. But I anticipate that this will be a game we lead much of the way, and put away in the 4th quarter by 10 to 14 points.

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