It’s a pretty common occurrence for fans and analysts to make bold predictions about a game or season. If the prediction doesn’t come true, then that’s OK - you said it was bold! If it DOES come true, though... now you look like a genius!

So in that spirit, some of the Canal Street Chronicles writers were asked to share with me a bold prediction or two for the Week 7 of the regular season for the New Orleans Saints: facing the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau (without Aaron Rodgers). This is their chance to look brilliant!

Here are a few of the bold predictions provided by some of the contributors at Canal Street Chronicles:

  • It’s About Time - Mike Thomas has his first 100 yard game. (Sig)
  • Special Special Teams - Saints block a punt. (Adam)
  • Breeze Bounce Back - Drew Brees has his first 400-yard game of the season and has at least 3 TDs with no picks. (Hendrix)
  • Need for Snead - Willie Snead catches his first TD of the season. (Adam)
  • Saints Run Hard - Saints run for 200+ yards again. (Sig)
  • More of the Same - Cam Jordan records 3 sacks in the game. (Adam)

Here are my three bold predictions for the game:

  • The Saints defense records more interceptions than passing touchdowns they give up.
  • Saints successfully use a trick play (i.e. flea-flicker, double-reverse, or option pass) on offense.
  • Alvin Kamara leads the game in all-purpose yards.

So there are some of our bold predictions for the game. What are yours?
