  1. Today
  2. But do we really need him to be dominant? He doesn't have to be a bell cow, 1300 yard runner. We've got Kamara to split carries and we all know that we throw the ball more than 90% of the teams in the league. It was just a hypothetical. I don't imagine we do much of anything other than fill bottom roster spots until season's end and we get to talk with Drew.
  3. Well, we DID have Jason Craft at the time....
  4. To be fair, Fran Tarkenton and Joe Montana also beat every team. There were only 28 teams in the league when they did though.
  5. Yep. He beat us good -- 4 Touchdowns. 3 to Antonio Gates.
  6. To no one's surprise, personally I wouldn't extend him at all. Not only is he coming off a suspension and in line for an even longer one if he messes up again, but his whole whining and drama of this past offseason wasn't particularly endearing either. He's old, cut the cord now and get a cheap replacement in one of the mid rounds or sign a cheaper one in free agency. Kamara is not replaceable but what Ingram does isn't nearly as unique (and if our defense sucked less we would have won all our games played without him, too). Extending a 29 year old running back, unless he's the second coming of Barry Sanders, is just a bad business decision, so far as I'm concerned.
  7. This is a tough one. Ingram is vital to our offense. He's also at the age where Rb's historically begin to fall off the cliff. Walter Payton and Marcus Allen are the only exceptions I can think of who were still dominant into their mid 30's.
  8. I just really, really like Mark Ingram.
  9. It also means Peyton beat the Colts and Brett beat the Falcons, Packers and Vikes.....So I guess I can live with it.
  10. Was that the Aaron Brooks backwards pass to an offensive lineman game? I know that game was against the Chargers. If it was, you could argue that the Saints beat the Saints that day.
  11. It wasn’t hard to do back then
  12. Yesterday
  13. This means that Drew beat the Saints.....dammit....
  14. If the Saints beat the Ravens, Brees will become just the third quarterback in NFL history to beat all 32 teams. The only quarterbacks that have pulled off the feat are Brett Favre and Peyton Manning.
  15. I would say we do exactly what we did last time we signed him. Let him find his value and we match it. No one is going to overpay for a 29-year-old RB. I would think he gets 4-6 million a year. I would like to get him for another 2-3 years. I think he will be ready to retire at 32. Either that or be all used up. With him having shared duties I still think he can run good till around 31-32 in a committee.
  16. Baltimore -always- gives us fits. I had this game marked as an L at the beginning of the season. This is a tough stretch for us but I’m glad we are going into it 4-1!
  17. Why you gotta tease me like this Dru?
  18. This is a hard one to put a finger on, the matchups are pretty equal in a lot of phases. I do think our offensive line with Peat seeming to be closer to 100% is on the verge of dominating, this will be a good test for them. I'm hoping that Flacco is Flacco and under pressure throws us a few. I think our D getting turnovers will be a key in this game...I also think if we can have some success in the run game early we can score on them, IMO if we can get to 24 points I think we win the game, not sure why I feel this why but i do....
  19. I would be disappointed if we didn't go 4-1.
  20. This next stretch of five games before Thanksgiving is really tough. I'd be happy with 3-2 before we beat the Falcons again. But would you be surprised if we went 4-1 or 5-0? Not with this group. This team has a chance to win every game they play. Bring on the Ravens!
  21. Last week
  22. We know this saying, we know coach is too. The Saints are coming off their bye and we have a steep challenge and this weeks key is to not even sniff that fromage. I like challenges, we faced the daunting #1 D in Washington and we know how that ended up. This week we once again face the #1 D in the league. Odd how that happened, yet here we are. If you glance at this weeks power rankings you'll notice something odd. We're top 2 for the most part in the view of the media. Where the hell did that come from? Well, it's been the emergence of the D, plain and simple. I mean c'mon we've had little to no doubt about this teams ability to score from game one, it was the ability to not stop the other team from scoring is how we ended up at the bottom of the barrel for the league in yards. Brees circled this game, this is a game he hasn't been able to win and one he wants badly. We are playing in the open field of Baltimore and not the confines of the dome, people will say. This is the time where we remind people that Drew played outside in the mud and the muck at Purdue and did just fine. This is a game Payton wants Brees to win like any other, but we have to really bring our A game across all 3 phases. This is a true test of where we are and where we're going, sadly it's that way for both teams. The Ravens have a D that is built to give teams like the Saints O fits, we have a true challenge. We also have one of the best interior linemen in the league. This is where we are going to really find out how elite that line is. They have size power and quickness and its been on display, but they've not faced an O like ours. The team has benefited from an early bye week to rest and recoup as well as the gameplan for this team. If Lattimore passes protocol we will have our D back to full strength. We are the #1 running D in the league by the numbers currently and that will be tested all game. Flacco is going to be Flacco, he has decent games and downright awful ones. If we unleash Davenport and Jordan consistently then Flacco will have the latter. He doesn't respond to pressure well. Neither does Brees which is why it will be key for our interior linemen to hold their ground. If they do so we can win this one with some comfort. If we collapse consistently, we're going to be in nailbiter territory and no one wants that. Geaux Saints!!!!!
  24. I can never say that
  25. Saints in sole possession of 2nd place in the NFC with the Panthers and Bears going down today.
  26. If Jackson caught that ball, I think he was in the endzone.
