Saints really need to step up there game if they want to beat Rams!

Recommended Posts

From what I saw against the Eagles, even at home, the saints  better play with more  intensity against the Rams. 

I thought that this would be less of a competitive game at home for the Saints. but they had better bring their A game against the Rams next week if they want to go to the Super Bowl.  I still think it will be KC vs the winner of this game.  I think the better matchup will be the Rams vs KC.

It's theirs to win or lose. It will be interesting. But the Rams have a lot of talent, so they better play with more urgency against them, than they did against the Eagles.

The Eagles' D seems to play better with their backs against the wall and Foles did not put them in many difficult positions like Wentz did. Plus, Jernigan being injured suddenly made their "can't run against" D very much prone enough to the run as the season went on. Then he came back. 

 

The Eagles were a hard out and they did not play like their seeding. If the Eagles played the Cowboys, the Cowboys would have been toast, IMO. The Eagles were probably the 3rd best team in the NFC, among playoff teams though their seeding did not reflect it, IMO.

 

The game plan vs the Rams for the Saints - stop the run and force Goff to beat you. Without Cooper Kupp, Goff's passing efficiency went down against good playoff teams, so that will be the Saints' game plan.

    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change. 
    • I had us going 10-6 and winning the AFC South. I knew with Luck back we'd be at minimum .500, and I thought by adding Nelson, Ebron, and Cain, our O would be pretty decent, and enough to take the South. We were 10-6, but didn't win the South.  I wasn't counting on our D being as good, so I guess they overachieved. Honestly I'm still not sold on our D. This year will be a much bigger test.
    • There appears to be a possibility that the Pacers acquire 31-year-old Eric Gordon, the shooting guard for the Rockets.   Houston wants Jimmy Butler but they don't have cap space to sign him. The 76ers would have to sign Jimmy and trade him to Houston. But Houston cant send the 76ers matching salaries because Philadelphia already has to sign Tobias Harris, JJ Reddick and soon Embid and Ben Simmons..   So the 76ers and Houston have to find a third team who could acquire some salary. In the theory of this trade: That team would be the Pacers who would take the final year of Eric Gordon's contract at $15 mil   Obviously, Gordon is an IU grad and Indianapolis native. He comes off the Houston bench behind Chris Paul and James Harden. 16.2 per game last year and 16.7 for his 11-year career..   Forgetting how crazy Houston's locker room would be with Paul, Harden and Butler, is there a downside to acquiring Gordon, who would start until Oladipo returns? We might have to give up next year's No.1 pick.
    • Here is a serious question, does anyone want to win the NL Central? I mean seriously  . We are winning it but just give games away like the Brewers and Cards do as well.
