Re: Sunday @ Oakland

I am not one who likes making predictions, because I usually suck bad at it. What I will say is at least on paper, this could be the first game this year that the Saints blow out an opponent.

A blow out probably will not happen, the Raiders are having a bad year, but they do have pride, and should be an interesting game. The Raiders also play much better at home than on the road.

I do expect Carson Palmer to drop at least 350 yards on the Saints defense, key is limit the scoring, and hopefully the Saints can stop the run, and hold Oakland to field goals.

On offense, I really don't expect Drew Brees to have a great game, it is outdoors, and since 2006 his outdoor stats are not great. Expect a heavy dose of the running game from the Saints, and hopefully some timely passes that work out.

Saints must control the clock, and actually score or at least not go three and out. Field position in a game like this, where the weather elements may be bad, is very critical.

Expect mistakes and turnovers if the elements are bad, still, the Saints are on a roll and need this one badly. McFadden for this game is questionable, he could be the key guy.

Yeah, the game was brutal but the weekend overall was a blast. And that was my first time to Mile High.
(Actually, I think where my seats were was a mile and a half high)

Re: Sunday @ Oakland

Lets see,
1.We're on a roll
2.We just beat our hated rival
3.We're on the road
4.We're playing on grass
5.We have San Fran next week.

This certainly reeks of a trap game. This game is a toss-up.

Run or backs, all of them. Pt, Ingram, Ivory .... keep them going. Like dano said about a trap, dont get caught looking ahead. We just need to control the clock, and the run game.... things will work out for us.

Re: Sunday @ Oakland


I hope we're practicing under the sprinklers this week.

I consciously avoided this game in my travel plan this year. That is going to be one UNfriendly crowd.

Re: Sunday @ Oakland

As far as it being a trap game....I think they know by now they cannot afford this loss. Pretty sure Brees and Vitt feel we need to get to .500 now to strengthen our chances of making the playoffs. The weather will be an issue but I think if we go with the same offensive game plan of the last 2 games and just keep it balanced we'll be ok. I mean Doug Martin of TB ran for over 200yds and like 4tds against these guys. If we stick with our ground game and just get the W we'll be fine. There is no need to focus on blowing them out or running up the score....just focus on excuting then winning.
