WWL-TV Sports
Time for everyone's favorite game - Saints 20 questions. One question per person, will answer the first 20 non-repeats.
WWL-TV Sports
1.) If I were a betting man, I'd say he's playing. Don't gamble, kids. RT : how is Lance Moore looking for Sunday' s game?

WWL-TV Sports
2.) Tighter coverage on back end, forcing Cutler to hold ball, allow line to pressure. RT : How do Saints keep Cutler from big No.s?

WWL-TV Sports
3) Played well, but ATL also appeared unprepared, not ready. RT : Did CHI defense look like MONSTERS last week against the ATL?

WWL-TV Sports
4) Kasay's nearly 20 yrs experience better than Jasper's 0. RT : why did the saints not sign Josh Jasper?

WWL-TV Sports
5) Both were running today. I'd say Colston, though. RT : hartley or colston. Who comes back first

WWL-TV Sports
6) Good question. Had trouble in camp conditioning. Certainly an issue. RT : Has Rogers got his endurance built up?

WWL-TV Sports
7) I expect better D the rest of the year. RT : Should we expect Haslett-era defensive perf. for the rest of the season?

WWL-TV Sports
8) No. RT : Do you believe (as Wootton said earlier this week) that Bears LB Urlacher is going to have the game of his life?

WWL-TV Sports
10) I'm not sure pumped is the word. I'd say 8-9 on a scale of being focused. RT : on a scale of 1-10 how pumped will urlacher be?

WWL-TV Sports
11) Ingram. A bruiser for a bruising defense. RT : what running back to you expect to get the most carries?

WWL-TV Sports
12) Keep the ball away from Hester on punts, KOs. RT : How will the Saints use Morstead to their advantange against the Bears?

WWL-TV Sports
13) Maybe a bit role. If Moore returns, don't think you'll see him on field a lot. RT : Do you think Arrington will contribute?

WWL-TV Sports
14) Neither. Maybe 100 yards combined. RT : will forte have 100 yds rec, rush, neither, or both?

WWL-TV Sports
15) A heck of a lot. 0-3 against Bears while with Saints. RT : How much does Brees want to beat these guys?

WWL-TV Sports
16) No. See this being an air-attack style game. RT : does Ingram get his 1st TD?

WWL-TV Sports
17) Ooh. Between Jenkins & Graham. I'd say Jenkins. RT : Brightest future - Ingram, Graham, Jenkins or Jordan?

WWL-TV Sports
18) Peppers vs Strief/Bushrod. RT : Which matchup do the Saints need to win this week?

WWL-TV Sports
19) Big on punt return, big on Brees checkdowns. RT : what's sproles impact against bears?

WWL-TV Sports
20) Leigh Torrence, Patrick Robinson, Turk McBride. RT : who do you think will step up defensively ?
