What I'm Hearing

Just generally covering what I'm hearing on TV and the radio today is that the Saints are overrated - that we're done. Drew is too old to go deep, our run game stands no chance against LA's defensive front, the loss of Rankins has doomed our ability to stop their run game...etc, etc.

I hope our guys are listening, because if they're hearing what I'm hearing they'll have all the motivation they could possibly need for this Sunday.

Me? I think we're going to shock the world. Again.

Going deep is nice, but ain't required. That's why we had a over an 11 minute drive in the third quarter on Sunday. Just get the job done. It ain't got to be pretty or spectacular.

That actually plays right into our strengths (to me); It always seems we do better when less is expected. When all the pundits are on board, that's when I become most uneasy.

Tom Brady alluded to the very same thing...

Re: What I'm Hearing

Speaking of PUNdits did you know the largest Knight Of The Round Table was Sir Cumference? He got that way from eating too much Pi. I wondered why the football Lutz kicked kept getting bigger and bigger, then it hit me! There was the EGGSPURT who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in-ten-did.

I have a really positive feeling about this one, which scares me. Our offense is due for a big game and I think the team is focused.
