Mid Iowa Posted January 13, 2021 Share Posted January 13, 2021 We've got a lot to discuss here, so I'm starting the thread earlier than usual. This matchup has me chewing my nails a little bit.Week 1 against the Buccs was close, and we saw a QB under a new HC and in a totally new system with only 1 familiar target, along with no preseason, OTA's, Training Camp etc... and we squeaked it out.Week 9 against the Buccs was NOT close, and that has me worried. The Saints absolutely dominated that game to the point where the "valuable" Buccs starters were pulled, AND it was Tom Brady's worst loss of his illustrious career. He's not going to let that happen again. And I ask, what did the Saints see on film, and what did they do that made this game such a lopsided contest? The Saint need to start week 19 like they did week 9. Only allowing 2 first downs in all of the 1st half, and zero points. Whereas the Saints, aside from a lost fumble, could do nothing wrong, and trotted into the locker room with a 31 - 0 lead. Only 10 more points were scored that game, and the Saints were clicking on all cylinders, including picking off Brady 3 times. So here we are, Week 19, which is different. One of these QB legends is going home with the final loss of the season, and possibly forever. So literally EVERYTHING is on the line for both these teams. We all know pulling off 3 wins to the same team in the same season is difficult, but it happens. We're seeing continuity with our recently regrouped offense, the defense seems to have gotten over their late season slump and are playing tight, and we're looking to have a fairly healthy roster as a whole. Our FG unit is the only question mark, at this point. Thoughts, gentleman? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
