Definitely right on this but Antonio Brown & JuJu are significantly better than any WR on Philly's roster. They'll get tested for sure. I just don't see them getting lit up like that did vs that awesome comboBoth corners have to be solid for the playoffs. Big Ben tested both Lattimore
AND Apple and we nearly lost that one.
Yeah, Tate worries me. He has given us serious problems in the past but we did manage to shut him down the first time we played Philly this year.Tate is a Saint killer I think Jeffery with a good QB is at least can make a case for Jeffery over Juju idk we’ll have to pay a good game period
I think she picked Saints vs Chargers in the SB before the season started. Pretty damn good forecast (and with a Saints win!). Yep Kay knows a thing or two about the NFL. Hats off. RespectWhat I like about Kay (beyond the obvious) is that before the wildcard round games began, on one of her shows she talked about being from Chicago and talked about how she wouldn't mind seeing the Bears advance to the Divisional Round. But she never turned into a homer and picked the Bears to go all the way in the playoffs. Since the beginning of the season she has been loyal to her prediction of a Saints SuperBowl victory and continues to give her support to the Black & Gold. How can you not love her for that?!?!
This girl knows her stuff!
That near loss wasn't necessarily because of the defense. Remember, the Saints panicked on offense after the Steelers scored the first TD after the Saints went up 24-14. Payton started throwing the ball around instead of sticking to the balanced attack that got them to that 24-14 score.Definitely right on this but Antonio Brown & JuJu are significantly better than any WR on Philly's roster.

When playing Tate in the past with Detroit, the Saints didn't have a solid trio of CBs like they do now. They would either be weak at the slot, one of the outside corners, or both. Now they are pretty solid at all three positions, the safety positions and pass rushing with Jordan, Rankins, and Davis. They are also shutting down the run. Remember, this defense is extremely young and should only get better with time and experience.Yeah, Tate worries me.

Foles had that same quick release in 2013, and the Saints had Greer and a couple of lesser talented corners, especially in the slot. They beat the Eagles in Philadelphia with Foles in the wildcard game in 2013 in 30something degree weather. This Saints team on both offense and defense is better than that 2013 team.The key to the defense in this game will be overcoming the quick release rhythm nature of Foles game. I believe it was NFL playbook that said the saints must jamm at the LoS and disrupt the timing, while giving the Dline and linebackers time to get home.
If that is in fact the game plan going in, and the DBs succeed, the defense pass rush will look like the heroes. The bottom line to me is that this game comes down to our DBs being physical.
