Sunday Night Show Down In New Orleans!
The New Orlean Saints & the Carolina Panthers are tied at the top of the NFC South division and the Sunday Night Show Down In New Orleans is going to change all of that!
The key match up here is how well the Panthers defense handles the NO Saints high powered offense. But, wait a minute! Didn’t the Saints get shut down just last week by the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 34 – 7? Are the Saints on the ropes?
With back to back games in prime time, (last Monday night in Seattle & again on Sunday Night Footfall) the Saints who rank in the top ten in both offense and defense had best get back on track at home.
This game is being billed in some circles as the second “vital” Saints game of the season, and rightly so! (Last week they lost the “First” one.) The winner gets a firm grip on the division with just three games left.
Most of the Main Stream Media (MSM) types try to make us believe this is a match up between Brees & Cam Newton, but I have to laugh every time I see those comparisons. Have any of you ever seen oposing Quarterbacks on the field during the same play? I didn’t think so.
The problem is that if the Panther defense cannot throttle back the air attack of Drew Brees it’s going to be a sad night for Cam, because the Panther air attack is NOT in the same class as Brees.
The Seattle secondary shut down the Saints recievers last week, and did it with just one sack on Drew Brees. That’s unusual. Can the Panthers Greg Hardy and Charles Johnson create enough preasure off the edges to make Brees uncomfortable?
Can LukeKuechly suddenly become better covering tight ends? He needs to be. One of the keys for Carolina will be the play calling of the Saints DC Rob Ryan. He tends to be agressive, but against a QB like Cam Newton it can kill him.
I have a feeling that NO is going to bounce back from their loss last week and maintain serve in their home court, but as they say, “Any given Sunday”, & this Sunday Night Show Down In New Orleans promises to be a must watch game.
