Yes, earlier in the year the Saints looked like world beaters but recently they have down to earth. I don't usually watch MNF but I was on the road and flipped in on in my hotel room, they were playing the Panthers. 

My thoughts:

1.) The Panthers have a physical defense and did everything possible to keep them in the game. 
2.) Cam Newton is a quitter and is either hurt or he sucks (maybe both). 
3.) The Saints were in a physical game, have a short week to practice (and were on the east coast).
4.) The Saints were down to 5 offensive lineman and are looking at the waiver wire to add at least (2) more. 
5.) The Saints have all but locked up the #1 seed and finish the year against the Panthers (at home). 
6.) Cam Newton is a quitter and is either hurt or he sucks (maybe both). 
7.) The Saints have a monster back-up QB (#7) and we'll need to keep an eye on him when he's in the game. 


Maybe we have a chance?????

No, but Id like think so... Last weeks game was good. No Cam Hayward this week and maybe no Bud dupree. Also, the Saints will score big points on our defense.

The Steelers offense cant keep stalling against Drew Brees and the Saints. They will need to match points. for each drive. I just dont see this happening. especially how many times we couldn't convert

on big drives against the Patriots.

I wasn't happy as most with the win over the Pasteritics***. Yes, I'll take the win but they still had a chance on the last pass. It was almost a blah-blah win to me, especially with as many penalties they had.

I've got a funny feeling we might beat the Saints, who knows?

So far it doesn't look like Connor will play either.

Maybe he's been talking to Bell's agent. LOL!!!

Saints have two very good running backs Kamara and Ingram
Saints have the number two run defense in all of football
Saints have Drew Brees who has struggled the last two games

At one point it looked like the NFL was going to be a pinball league but a lot has calmed down lately.

Still picking the saints to win by 7.

Ravens will beat the Chargers

Good tmes

I've said it before, I'll say it again: if we play our game, we can beat anyone. If we don't, we can lose to anyone. The big question, is which Steeler team shows up? I have no idea. I wouldn't be surprised if we win. I wouldn't be surprised if we lose. Somehow, I would be surprised, though if we got blown out. I do think we keep it close. But we'll see.

It's why I always hated Fantasy football. How do I cheer for the other team's success? Smile

Looks like the Panthers are shutting Cam newton down for the season. Shoulder issues. Who knows what his future holds.

At this point (10:17 left in the 3rd, Saints about to score again) Its currently 17-14 Saints.

We'd look to have about a 10% chance. Cant defend shit, and our "O" has been dubious

Still typing: Kamara scored. 24-14

I guess the answer to my question is no, they can't beat the Saints (and the refs).
