Good stuff but I still have to pick at this. I think if Jenkins plays both tackles at once we'll lose

He does have outstanding footwork.

I was at the Michigan v. Michigan State game his senior year. He made an interception on the sideline I'll never forget. He one handed it, backhand and got his foot down inbounds. It was incredible and right across from where I was sitting. 

I wanted him in Green and Gold from that day forward.

Not awful

That depends.
If you're a 300lb DL wearing 10 lbs of restrictive gear + a helmet...  then 87 degrees, high humidity and a 40 % chance of rain... kinda sucks.
Some teams melt in 2nd half in Jax in Sept. -  and if you talk to people from the area - they'll tell you its a major challenge that northerners just don't appreciate

The Saints talented OL + RBs will be leaning on the GB DL early and often, hoping to tire them out. Its an early season test.

Oh I know it's uncomfortable, but was glad I didn't see real temps in the 90s. Felt like it could have been worse.

I live here and although daily temps have dropped around 5 degrees from 90-95 a day, just working outside can still be oppressive. I mean - it's downright nasty. Depending on what you're doing, it can be exhausting hot. You either have to pick your times or simply buy into it, accept you're gonna sweat like a pig and drink like a fish so you dont keel over.

These tropical storms all bring warm / humid air up from the equator. You can feel the humidity jump when one is passing in the area. I couldnt imagine putting on football gear and getting at it in this heat. If anything, all games should be at night. That at least would take the sun out of the equation.

Position of the Week to watch for the Saints is that CB room. They only have 4 CBs on the roster and one of them is Crawley who might be out with a hammy. Behind him is Trufant who they just picked up last week. Only other CB on the roster other than Lattimore is Adebo.

PJ Williams can also play CB even though he's listed at Safety. He can play the Micah Hyde role.

I'd be surprised if we're not wearing our home green uni's as well....

I think we'll see some CGJ in the slot as well, but still, they're hurting. They just nabbed Roby but he's suspended this week. Could possibly see Kadar get some snaps Sunday. Pretty sure he's on their PS. 

Should also see quite a bit of Ringo and Montravius at DT.
