This player is amazing and can do it all on offense it seems. Outside of Kamara he is becoming increasingly the most important player on offense. He is pivotal in setting up field position for N.O with his returns. On jet sweeps he is hard to tackle. When it comes to recieving he has great hands. He can also do long routes and catch the ball in heavily contested traffic.

This Sunday his impact on Special Teams and offense are going to be a key reason why N.O wins. Tampa is going to be busy guarding M.T A.K and Sanders which will give Harris some great opportunities

Man, Sean Payton is such a “dawg”!

IMO, a big part of his game plan against the Bears was to get MT AK, n DH some much needed reps n touches to get em back in the flow on O, n wit Drew.

But like others have said, Payton plays chess while everybody else plays checkers! The 7-8 targets to Harris were also for the Bucs D. They are formidable, no doubt, but their pass coverage is a lil suspect.

So “Let’s give em somethin to talk about”!

You are right, the Bucs cannot and that goes for most teams, possibly cover all of our weapons!! The key is keeping Brees upright so he can scan the field before the pocket collapses. The other key would be these quick crack like plays to Harris and AK so they use their speed to get outside and dominate.

We'll most likely be able to score against the Bucs defense, but that was never the question. It's if the Saints can cover all of their weapons now that Brown is supposedly fully meshed into the offense.

I love how Sean game plans for certain players to exceed amongst the elites like MT and AK. I was hoping he would get Calloway involved but maybe this game against the Buc’s will be his game to shine.

I had said before the game I was most excited about him returning this week than any other player. He certainly proved me right. He was all over the field on Sunday. It's really great to get players back for the playoffs for once.

Again, IMO it was Fournette who literally carried the day for TB against Washington. He ran for about 90 yds, which gave the Bucs some sorely needed balance. Pretty sure DA has already taken notes. I don’t think he’ll overplay the run, jus make his D is well aware of it.

Harris gets a lot of YAC, often doubling his reception yardage with nice YAC. He punches above his weight, spinning away from the first tackler and even breaking an occasional arm tackle. His shiftiness gets him open on a lot of medium and deep routes. He's doing what I wanted Cooks to do, and even though his stats are way in front of Harris, I don't miss him.

It’s his acceleration man. His longest play where he caught the ball standing nearly still, but split between two defenders about 2-3 yards away from him on both sides, then immediately is running at full speed and picks up like 10 more yards was really kind of insane. You could tell the DBs thought they had an easy tackle and were caught off guard when they were so close yet couldn’t quite get to him.

everyone keeps talking about how will the saints slow down fournette, jones, gronk/brate, evans/godwin/brown.

they have an equally, if not harder, game of trying to slow down, ak/murray, thomas/sanders/harris/callaway, hill/cook/trautman.

plus bucs pass d is giving up 69% completion % compared to saints 59.8% (2nd best). i think they struggle against are offense more than we will against theirs.

with that said. a pick 6/punt return td. missed fgs. can change the course of the game very quickly.

He converted something like 4 third downs. Unexpected but a lot here have been saying for the last couple of years that we need him more involved in the offense.
