Time yet again to see how well all of you did predicting the results of yesterdays game. Here is what you guys thought would happen.
Reggie Bush will end the day with 125 yards receiving and 1 receiving TD and 45 yards on the ground.
Saints 28, Skins 23
Hmm...PT does have less than 80 but does have a TD. Defense has two sacks. Sort of close.
Close game but they didn't convert 50%. Reggie was close to 50/50 and Deuce's two carries could be considered sparingly.
Only part that was close was the Portis prediction.
Smith got his first sack. Saints do give up a big pass play to Moss.
|pukenbowl|| I knew from the beginning this one was too optimistic.
I am having this sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach that we could lose but I don’t think we will.
1. Saints 24, Skins 21
|Should have listened to your stomach. The rest of your predictions were a little off.|
|NYSaint||Not bad. PT has a TD. Brees always spreads it around.|
since I was so terrible last week, I will keep it simple…
|Can't even get that one right!|
I’m putting my money on the SKins running for a proverbeal ass-ton of yardage. Portis AVG over 6ypc. I don’t want to see it, but with the injuries we have sustained are going to hurt the run more than the pass defense. That’s going to keep the game closer than any of us wan’t to see.
The offense will play well though.
|Interesting. Portis had 96 yards. Not sure if that qualifies as an "ass-ton" but it was a pretty good performance. Bush did have a big special teams play.|
I will be going to the game and hopefully watching the Saints pull off a victory. The price you pay for being a Saints fan in the Washington DC area around a bunch of Skins fans is you can talk trash most of the time and it won’t affect you. Now that this is the 3rd time since I have been living up here that we face the Skins (the first 2 times we won), I am hoping this 3rd time will be a charm. I think it will be a close one, especially with our injuries, mainly Harper and Colston and the fact that the Skins are coming off of 3 extra days rest and are hungry for a win. I think they will try to run Portis and Betts on us, which should provide some production, so our defense will have to show up. If the defense plays half way decent, I think this will be a high scoring game, with the Saints pulling off the close one, 27-24, Geaux Saints!
|Another prediction regarding the Skins run game. Pretty close.|
1. Deuce will play and get around 50 yards and will score a short yardage TD
|Not as good as usual Satch. Close on Vilma. The Shockmeister was more like the Suckmesiter.|
Not too many amazing predictions here. No had the courage to pick the Saints to lose. Just as a note, I decided not to count Reggie's punt return yards as all-purpose yardage.
You guys vote for the winner!
