>A significant injury will be incurred by a high profile player, spoiling the day for one side.

>Bell and Bush split touches; Bush shines, Bell is a disappointment.

> Smith and Grant each have 1.5 sacks and the team has 6 total.

> Moorstead doesn’t muff any punts; in fact, the Saints only punt once, and it’s downed inside the 10.

> The Saints’ history of futility (including the 1-win season) is mentioned 5 times during the game, sparking at least one comparison of Stafford to Archie Manning.

FriarBob

1) Oh man, after Hap’s video I got no choice on this one. Saints get another opening-day shutout. We’re due.

2) Reggie gets a hat trick. Don’t care how, he’ just gets at least three TDs. (Can you guess he’s on my fantasy team?)

3) Stafford actually looks pretty good, including at least one "acheman"-esque escape from a sack. It’s still a rude "welcome to the NFL" day for him.

No

No

I don't really think so.

Jee

- This is a game decided by defense. Saints’ D will shine, 2 INTs, 3 FF’s/1 recovery. 4 sacks (2 by Ellis, 1 by McCray, 1 by Shanle -yes I just typed that). Lions D, however, will give us fits. Honestly, don’t underestimate these guys. I see a close game.

- Brees throws 3 TDs (one to Shockey, one deep one to Meachem, and a screen pass to Bush) and has over 300 yards with 1 INT. He gets sacked once.

- Lions punt away from Bush every time. KR Rod Harper struggles, his long being 24 yards.

> Brees will pick apart the Lions’s secondary, not that it’s particularly bad, Brees simply does it to everyone. He’ll have a killer game week 1.

> Bush is very successful on screens and dump-offs, and has himself a nice 90yd game. w/ 2 TDs

> The Saint’s secondary effectively restricts Matthew Stafford from having a great game, their looks are frustrating for the rookie QB.

    1. The first prediction is obvious and conveys the rarest of opinions: Lions win, solidly. Predicting this years Lions-Saints outcome based upon last years results is like going up to Larry Foote, Julian Peterson or any of the other 9 starters on the defense and blaming them to their face for last years result. Better duck fast.

    2. Matthew Stafford (one sack) shines with over 300 yards passing. (Bonus) Detroits running game produces almost 200 yards.

    3. Drew Brees is sacked four times and picked off twice in the shocker that introduces the Detroit Lions to the NFL.
