Nobody asked me, but:
Saints cornerback Fred Thomas is a better cornerback than he showed against Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson although he was beaten for two touchdowns. Thomas is big (5-9, 185), but he uses his veteran smarts to harass receivers. He doesn´t intercept many passes, but he doesn´t give up big plays either. The Saints play more man coverage than most teams, and Thomas is good at breaking up passes and wrapping up receivers after the catch.
Look for the pass-happy to become more grounded on Sunday at Atlanta. The Saints have 7 turnovers in the last two games, and running backs Deuce McAllister (81 rushing yards) and Reggie Bush (53) were at their two-headed best in the first match up against the Falcons in Week 3. Look for the Saints to try and establish McAllister, their trusted workhorse, and stick with him throughout the afternoon. Ravens running back Jamal Lewis ran for 91 yards and 3 TDs last Sunday against the Falcons.
