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.

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

While I know the following stats are preseason stats, the Viqueens allowed an average of 22.75 points per game, the Saints 10.25 points per game, not factoring in actual points given up by the defense. If we did the latter, our stats would be even better. If we were to juxtapose the very same preseason stats from the last few years, we would see a difference. It would appear we are remarkably improved on defense, any way you slice it. It'll be fun to see just how much in the next few games.

Adrian Peterson. He went to Oklahoma. Baker Mayfield. He's at Oklahoma. Saints take Baker Mayfield with the 32nd pick in the NFL Draft next year.

Or we take Lamar Jackson in the 2nd or 3rd after everybody doubts his ability to play QB at the next level.

AP goes for 150 first game and 3 TDs.

True, but you'd have to take into consideration the opponents they played against, who those opponents fielded out of the roster, what were the goals they tried to achieve in the games, etc. - and then look at the same variables from the Vikes' and Saints' point of view.

Having watched those games fairly closely, the Vikes held out many starters from all of the preseason games or gave them just a handful of snaps.

I'm not saying they are world-beaters - just trying to keep a cool head.

Gunslinger, ability to rally the troops (see OSU game last night). I see a lot of Derek Carr in him. Baker could possibly become the 1st QB taken. If he keeps playing at a high level, highly unlikely he drops out of the top 10.

I think they'll keep the kids from USC and Wyoming ahead of him because of his size, but I like him too. He's got swag.

While I wish AP the best, who I really want to see stick it to the Vikings, is Kamara. The young man touched the ball like 4 times in preseason, and each time it was electrifying.
