Last year Leon Washington led the NFL in all-purpose yards. The Saints must not let Leon make plays on special teams and on offense. Leon is like Reggie in an open field he is scary. This matchup has two teams with game changers on special teams.

I'm past being scared of anything.

The Jets will need more then a few yards from Leon Washington and some good returns to beat us at home.

The Jets don't scare me... I respect them, but definitely don't fear them. No team in the NFL scares me.

If these Saints continue to play well in all three phases, and make the necessary adjustments when challenged, we will be in every game this year... We'll also win many more than we lose. JMHO

Desean Jackson and Ellis Hobbs was suppose to scare us on Special Teams, didn't work. McKelvin and Parrish was suppose to scare us, didn't work. I'm not worried about Leon Washington. Our coverage units have been impressive over the past couple games and I look for that to improve.

Yeah ST could be a big factor in this game. Jets D is legit and their running game/offensive line is pretty good. If their D has a game like when they played the Pats, one big ST play could have a big impact on the game.

i get really tired of the word "scared". We should not be afraid of other teams. We play the game and the one team will win and one will loose.

i don't see anything to be scared of.

Desean Jackson was our special teams test. We have corrected most of our ST problems. See Week 1, and the weeks following that. All problems fixed!

Nobody is afraid the Jets. It's just a quirk in the English language. When you anticipate getting beaten, or recognize there is a possibility of being beaten, you say you "fear" or you're "scared" of being beaten. That doesn't mean anyone is scared.

Reggie is not anywhere near Leon Washington's league as far as being the "X-factor" return man/3rd down back/backfield receiving threat. Leon is what Reggie should be.

Agreed. I love to watch Washington play.
