Hollywoo!

1) Suspensions are put on hold till legal issues are resolved…Smith and Deuce play!!

2) Saints get revenge, win the game by more than the spread. (which is 3.5. I think.)

3) I’m with Puke…Shockey gets into the endzone…

Yes

Yes

1. I think the Saints’ defensive strategy will be based on stopping Michael Turner. That can be done, and I think it will be. But whether or not that leaves Matt Ryan a free hand is no better than a coin flip, seeing as how our secondary is different every week. Who’s playing now?

2. Drew doesn’t often have bad games twice in a row, and he plays better at home. My guess is a completion percentage better than 60%, over 300 yards and 3 TDs.

3. That should be enough to win. 31-24. But I’m not going to rag on Dave the Falconer anymore. Dude has me spooked.

Yes?

No

No

Steve the fan

1. Jamaal Brown will have three holding penalties, 1 in the first, 2 in the fourth during the furious Saints rally from 2 scores down only to come up short on a Brees INT (that’s right the Saints lose, but it means better draft position for the WR we will take in the first round; And no, I am not bitter at all).
2. Brees will be 32 of 47 for 328 yds, 3 TDs, 1 INT, 2 sacks (even with the holds), and 3 rushes for 12 yds with one of the rushes being for a first down during the fourth quarter rally.
3. Payton will call a sweep toss or wide receiver end reverse on third and 1 for reasons only he knows.

No

No

No

HansDat

1) Falcons score on 3 Elam FGs and 1 Turner TD run

2) Secondary has awesome 2nd game vs. IceIceBabyRyan and holds him to under 200 yards and just over 50% completion rate

3) Bush fumble with 2:15 to go in the fourth Q causes Jason David to have to save the day by breaking up a “Big Ben” hail mary pass on the Falcons final play (finally reversing some of those bad Steve Bartkowski hail mary losses to the Falcons in the late 70’s early 80’s when we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory).

1. Decue and PT find the endzone
2. Bush returns a punt for more than 25 yrds
3. Robi has a big return for a TD

No

Ditka'sGhost

1. Pierre gets most carries, 14+ for around 65 yards
2. Bush another ineffective day, low rushing avg, a couple of dropped passes,
loses ground in punt returns
3. Deuce, if you blink you won’t even spot him on maybe two carries during the game.
Both Pierre and Bush will be stopped in short yardage situations, prompting the normal Monday question and answer sessions with Payton about Deuce’s status.

No

satchmo26

1. The Saints D contains Turner “the Burner” by holding him to under 60 rush yards, but Matt Ryan will light up the secondary with 250+ passing yards and 3 TDs.
2. Pierre Thomas rushes for close to 100 yards and scores 2 TDs; Once again and much to the dismay of the fans in attendance, Payton barely uses Deuce.
3. Shockey finally scores a Saints TD and puts up close to 80 yards.

No
