Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Bennett, the team's all-pro defensive lineman, won't play in Sunday's game vs. the New Orleans Saints and surgery is a possibility to fix cartilage damage in his knee. Instead, Byrd has spent his entire Saints tenure either injured on the sideline or playing not to get hurt. But during that time, there also have been games where the defense has held its own and the offense has struggled to reach the end zone.
But I do think an upset is possible. Finally, Snead is mister reliable, he's the surest hands on the team, the guy Drew Brees will often go to on third down. Brandin Cooks added 58 yards and a touchdown in seven receptions.
No, we're not talking about on the streets of the French Quarter, rather in the Superdome on Sunday afternoon. I need to prepare myself for anything.
Brees has thrown for 1,820 yards with 13 touchdowns and three interceptions in six games against the Seahawks. Maybe playing New Orleans will help. He is a worrisome kicker because he is young and a rookie, and thus likely impressionable. "Jimmy's been great since he got back and has his legs underneath him".
Unger has been a good addition for the Saints as he's provided a foundation piece on the offensive line over the last two seasons. I would advise to prepare yourself for anything because as Saints fans, that's exactly what we do.
"We're going to play in these close games". At least he has made all 21 of his PAT attempts, so there's that. He'll be tasked with keeping Cooks from getting behind Seattle's defense for explosive pass plays.
@Iitoxity: Who do you think is the best wide receiver for the Saints right now?
Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro said he expects Graham to be eager to show the Saints what they're missing when he returns to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the first time Sunday. Even in that contest, New Orleans allowed 417 yards of offense.
Finding a defensive core, keeping them around and staying at the top of the rankings in the salary-cap era of the National Football League is arguably tougher than doing the same on offense - New Orleans has enjoyed an even longer run of success on the offensive side of the ball - because the defensive side of the ball has no position quite like quarterback, where a player like Brees or Tom Brady can ensure success even with things changing around them.
Seattle is looking to move to 5-1-1 on the season, and they will get the job done this week against the Saints. Unfortunately, they do not always play smart. Each week, I will force him to make a bald prediction, and will make it tougher on him as the season goes. Drew Brees is having one of the best seasons of his career and is hoping to lead the Saints to another huge win. "So it's amusing to hear the stories and so this will be another one".
