Thoughts

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Lattimore on Funchess, Williams on Olsen, Te'o spies Newton, Robertson spies McCaffrey /Stewart and put the rest (DBs) on who you want. I am a simple man....

Olsen may be able to use his size to keep Williams away from the ball on the underneath stuff. Like a power forward boxes out for rebounds.

I really don't think Olsen is fully recovered from the leg injury. He only had one catch on nine targets last week facing the Falcons.

Falcons have much better LBs than we do.

Re: Thoughts

As Guido stated, Olsen is still injured and it was pretty obvious last week.

To avoid big runs on 3rd down from Fig Newton, I'd take a page out of Wade Phillips playbook & use single coverage on their WR's & flank Teo/Robertson outside the offensive line.

Their passing "attack" doesn't scare me. Especially with Latt & Crawley playing well on those boundaries.

Unless we get a flag-happy ref crew.

It appears we will get the Tony Corrente crew in the dome.

Which is strange, because he absolutely blew up 2 weeks earlier against Green Bay

In the nickel/dime, you could almost afford to put Crawley on him and have PJ cover the #2 WR (insert name here)
