This team is not the 2009 Saints. In '09 we started out 13-0, finished 13-3, and were pretty beat up. We needed the bye to get players rested and healthy.
This team is largely healthy, abet a little weak at the secondary level, with Lewis questionable, and Vaccaro done for the season. I actually think Lewis will be the greater liability, if he can't play in Seattle. This team needs to keep playing, to keep from getting rusty. The D needs to maintain it's level, and the O needs to keep on improving. If the O-line can play like last week, then we can beat Seattle, and I would be fine going either back to Carolina, or SF, and have a rematch with either team. Hopefully whichever team we face is beat up from playing each other.
