Love for Brees to get Snead the ball early and involve him. Let Minn adjust to that.
I'm completely over Coleman and his ball-handling. At some point you learn, adjust, etc to put the ball away.

I hope that SP doesn't abandon the ground game if the Vikings are able to limit it.

Michael Thomas is Superman. You can't stop him.

Thomas needs to smoke Rhodes to break this game open and for him to get the recognition he deserves...

Otherwise, he'll be another Alshon who pads stats and disappears in big games and at crutch time...

If Thomas and Brees can get it going early, it'll be an avalanche and we'll break this thing open big...

Thomas will get a few catches on slants and curl routes but Rhodes will largely shut him down. Itís imperative that someone else steps up. I just beg that we please, please, please donít try to make Tommylee Lewis that guy. Have Taysom Hill run some routes if we have to lol.
