While watching the Detroit Lions play the Carolina Panthers this past weekend, one thing was abundantly clear. The Lions secondary, which looked so strong through their first couple games, seemed out of position and generally ineffective against the Saints’ NFC South divisional rival. In fact, the Lions secondary let both the Atlanta Falcons and Panthers receivers run absolutely wild on them.

A turnaround can happen very quickly. Our boys better be ready.

Hopefully the turnaround will apply to us instead of them.

I don't know when the last time I actually felt like we were going to blow an opponent out before the game started. There's no way that I'm that confident yet. This will be a good test for the defense.

Not really buying it. Slay is usually no joke and he will probably be on Thomas most of the game. Other guys will need to step up and get open.

Don't eat the cheese. Over the last few years, the Lions have game planned well against our offense. This is still a dangerous team. I'll be surprised if Allen doesn't blitz often on Sunday.

The Saints need to play well in all phases of the game. If we do that, chalk up another W.

Glover Quin always gives Brees fits though.

Lombardi knows them fairly well. Ya think? Defense keeps them down and we win.

Who knows in the NFL of parity we have today.
I'm sure the Panthers thought they would drop 50 points on our secondary in week 3....
