Well, we’re three down and only one more to go. I hope your belly is full of the things that you like and that you’ve hunkered down for the day. Not sure about you guys out there but the wind is howling and growling up here, blowing the darn snow everywhere. A source in New Orleans has told me that the weather inside The Rich Fella’s Car Dome is hunky and dory, if you can believe it. So how will this thingy in front of our eyeballs play out? Let’s go…TO THE GAME!
There’s a 65% chance that this is the last time Jerry Richardson can look down on his team, metaphorically and physically. I guess I have to back up a bit here. The Saints have taken both tilts from the Panthers this year by a combined 31 points. What you’ll be hearing pre-game is that IT’S SO FREAKING HARD to beat a team three times in a season. Fact is, 65% of the time the winning team that has won before will end up being the winning team again and the losing team will be the same. Got that? No? Good.
Best RB in the league:
His name is Ingram Kamara and he’s run at a 4.7 ypc clip all season long. You should try and pick him up early in your fantasy draft next year.
It’s a fine line…:
As the Wallenda’s will no doubt tell you, ‘balance’ is of the utmost importance. Mr. Brees can state matter-of-factly that an adequate running game will cause you to drop to the ground behind the line of scrimmage only 20 times in 2017. That’s a 3% sack rate and the fewest times he’s been down in ten years. His 270 yards passing per game is the first time he’s been below 300 in six years.
My Hot Takeaway:
The Saints ain’t gonna lose this one.
Roar down below, mes petits tigres.
