The New Orleans Saints head to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday afternoon (noon CT on Fox) with a regular season win under their belt. Last season, the Saints were 1-0 headed into Washington and played horribly but still should have won the game.
If the Saints play horribly in this one, especially offensively, they will get crushed. But, I would say the Saints defense has reason to be optimistic.
Part of the reason, of course is the possibility of Donovan McNabb not playing. But the bigger deal is the loss of Guard Shawn Andrews, who the Eagles placed on Injured Reserve yesterday. The Eagles feature almost an entirely new offensive line from last season.
Continuity is a key for any offensive line, and subsequently there is almost no way the Eagles' line could have that this early in their time together. I would expect a lot of creative blitzes and/or stunts, twists, games, etc. from Gregg Williams to confuse the offensive line.
