Is that so? The last rookie/backup the Saints faced was Jarod Goff last season and the Saints held him to 214 yards passing, sacked him three times and picked him off once. Saints won 27-13.

Before that the most recent was Denver and Trevor Siemian who was sacked SIX times and picked off twice. We lost that one on the blocked extra point return for two.

I don't think we have faced any others since those two last year.

Re: On To The Lions

Highland Park is injured a lot but somehow he still makes plays on Sunday. I'd blitz early and often. Slap him around & re aggravate something. Often times he's a beast when injured.

Dome needs to be rocking & players on both sides of the ball on their A game ... bring it.

Re: On To The Lions

Stafford will be playing on Sunday ... even if it's on one leg.

He's about as tough as they come at the position.

You took the words outta my mouth. Stafford is one tough cookie, one of the reasons I like him so much. Which reminds me, we had a Detroit fan on our forum for a while a few years ago...can't remember his name offhand. He was a positive contributor to this forum, but I can't recall seeing him on here in a while...

He's playing. Very seldom is a starting QB benched for sprains. If he practices this week, even limited he will be out there.

Advantage for us would be poor mobility. Probably see more blitzing just to make those injuries stew around.

Hit him early and often. He's tough but he is human and can only take so many beatings before he gets gun shy.

Yep, SloMotion. Good guy, always pleasant to talk to and has great insight. He's probably traveling the world as we speak.
