How to stop the Saints.

The formula to stopping the Saints is so clear...
1) Stop Drew Brees Passing.
2) Stop the Running Backs making yards.
3) Stop receivers catching the ball
4) Study film until your eyes bleed so you know who to stop.
5) Realise you know who to stop but there are just so many of them.
6) Realise you can't do 1) unless you get past the O-Line.
7) Realise the O-Line is near impenetrable.
8) Realise you can't do 3) because of 5).
9) Start to panic because you've only a few days.
10) Rock back and forth while crying.
11) Realise that, while everyone knows what they SHOULD do to stop the Saints, actually doing it is another matter entirely.
12) Get a job at Popeyes. It's less stressful and there's chicken. mmm...chicken...

Seriously though, everyone we play has to say that they know what to do to take us down as they can't say 'we don't know what to do so we will do our best'. If they do, they will get their arse kicked for being so wishy-washy. The Wildcat does concern me because although Philadelphia tried it against us, Miami are the best at it and they have better personnel to do it. However, if we get in front again then they may well have to abandon it and it seems to be their main offensive weapon.

Number 10 will be happening a lot this year for opponents!

Great write. 2 days to wait the Saints D is going to be prepared to make the Dolphins Offense one dimensional and with Brees taking advantage of their secondary I just can't see them keeping up.
