I'm not taking the Rams defense lightly at all...They have had our number the last few times we've played them. Plus let's not forget the fact that Gregg Williams runs their defense and he is very familiar with what the Saints want to do. I expect some different looks to try and confuse Brees and I definitely think they'll be some pressure packages put in play to try and generate turnovers and help their offense which is exactly what the Saints must avoid in this game. I sure hope Armstead is ready because we need the offensive line to be at it's healthy best.

In a perfect world I'd say the best way to beat the Rams is to jump on them quick and put up points and therefore take the threat of Gurley out of the game. That being said I'm sure we'll see a lot of empty set Shotgun passes. I just pray to God that they're are no fluky turnovers by Brees because that's one recipe for disaster. The other is the Saints Defense taking the Rams lightly and giving up TDs on stupid trick plays because I'll bet the farm that a few will be designed to try and trick us....BANK on it.

Max Unger vs Aaron Donald is one of the matchups of the NFL season. Both playing at an extremely high level
Great point...I totally agree

Considering how they have owned us in the last few games with them, I'm in favor of poisoned darts.

But seriously, we must find a way of keeping another rookie QB from looking like a Hall of Famer. If we just do that (and not try to kick anything :covri: ) we will win. :9:

Blitz on D and pass to setup the run. Oh, and most importantly, try and not give up any blocked kicks.

On 4th down inside their 40, go for it (no field goals).

Go for 2 after every touchdown (no PATs).

Blowout.

Like Red Beaulieu from the University of Louisiana Cougars did when he faced Coach Klein & Bobby Boucher from the SCLSU Mud Dogs.

Just score once and keep giving the ball to the Rams offense. That offense is so bad, they'll find a way to lose the game on their own.

They should ram it, of course.

GW knows how to get inside Brees' head. Beat him up physically early and often and Brees has tendencies to throw Pick 6 and fumbles

I wonder if SP has enough confidence in our defense to play a ball control, field position game and take Brees getting beat up early out of the equation.

Seems like GW defenses have problems with TEs. Don't know about the Rams this year. Unfortunately for the Saints offense, TEs may be the best way to attack the Rams D... unfortunately.

Armstead better be ready to go because Aaron Donald vs Lelito or Kelemente is a recipe for disaster.
