First off let me say it's gonna be a great atmosphere tonight and I fully expect the Saints to come out swinging. I can easily see the Saints winning 31-17 or something like that. However if the Falcons somehow pull off a win on this special night when our team is giving it their all... I just think it will be so deflating for our team. I don't know if we will recover in time for San Diego so 0-3 might turn into 0-4 real fast. But I say we go into SD at 1-2 and come out of there being 2-2 going into the bye week!:9:

We are 2 games into the season and are down 7 starters, I expect this team to compete and I believe we can still win because I think the Coaching will be the difference but i think its a tough task to not be full strenght this early in the season and try and stay afloat until some starters return.

It's not just the quantity, it's the quality too.

We will be without our best offensive lineman, our best cover corner (well 5 best), our best LB, our best safety and one of our two best WR's and our 1st round pick.

To put that on top of the team that has the most dead money and fewest draft picks playing it's a whole lot to ask because we don't have the quality depth some other teams may have.

Sounds like it could get ugly for us tonight, but it would be just like the Saints to get this big W, then beat the Chargers, and then lay an egg after the bye when we get a little healthier

Tonight will be a test to see if our "next man up" slogan hold to be true. After watching the Patriots win Thursday night with their 3rd string QB, anything is possible for us. Who Dat.
