It's hard to imagine a Week 5 game having so much on the line as this one does. Having suffered a critical loss to Green Bay was one thing, but having two other division opponents already sitting at 3-2 makes this practically a 'must win' game to keep us in the NFC South race.

The only positive thing about where we stand in the division right now is that by virtue of our win over the Bucs in Week 1, winning tonight would put the Saints back on top in the race for the NFC South crown with the best divisional record. It sure looks like winning the South division will have to be a top priority because there's still a lot we don't know about who will emerge as the teams to beat in the NFC. Every Game Counts!

It will also be important to get a win tonight since we will be going into our Bye week next Sunday and then have to face the ever-improving Panthers on 10/25. We need to stay healthy tonight and get everyone back to 100% for a stretch of games that could establish a firm hold of the top spot in our division, when the Saints will face division foes in 3 of the next 5 games after the Bye.

So let's beat the Chargers and get into our Bye week as the South leaders! Our Saints need to get ready for the remainder of the season which hopefully will be free of any additional Covid postponements. Keep those hands washed people!!! :9:

It's hard for me to watch all the pregame stories on WDSU from inside the Superdome and see an empty building for a big Monday night game. I can only imagine how an empty Superdome feels to the players who are starting their pregame warmups.

If this season is ever going to feel like the real thing, the ability to have fans in the stands is going to have to become a reality soon. I understand all the reasons for shutting it down. But the frustration level is getting sky high for me.

Excited to find out if we are winning the Super Bowl or tanking for Trevor. Too bad I have to wait for a couple drives into the first quarter before posters in this thread let me know!!

Just do what I do. Decide for yourself where the Saints are going based on what you see tonight. Your guess is as good as anyone else's impression.

I rarely get the feeling I get like tonight. I feel like the Saints are going to dominate this game, but I've been drinking since like 3 PM lol.
Ditto minus the drinking. I feel like Bress will show out for his last MNF.
