Preseason is over! The long nightmare of watching games between 2nd stringers, 3rd stringers, and finally stadium vending employees, is over! The Saints and Packers get to be the special opening game of the season, which is the second year in a row the Saints have been involved and the 3rd time since 2007.
I don't know the statistics on opening game for the Packers, so whoever does know, tell me in the comments and I'll update the post...if I'm not feeling lazy (hint: I'm always lazy).
But please, use this thread to ask any questions you want answered about the Saints. I'll try to answer what I think will be the most asked questions below the jump!
*Please rec this post to keep it up till next Thursday.!!*1. I'm very excited about the offense, and kind of worried about the defense. I have a feeling the game is going to be a shootout, and the winner will be the team who has the ball last. If it does become a defensive game, the Packers are going to win...easily.
2. Matchups to watch: Drew Brees vs. Secondary (It's interesting to see which Brees is going to show up)
O-line vs. Clay Matthews (REALLLLY worried about the possibility of Bushrod going one on one with him.)
Saints pass rush. (One of the keys for the Saints is going to be getting to the QB. The pass rush has been very mediocre during the preseason. If Rodgers has all day...well...)
3. In his spare time, Drew Brees is known to walk around New Orleans and willing people back to life. Though so far, he's only managed to bring back 2 people and a cat.
4. Yes, Sean Payton's balls do in fact weigh more than his head.
5. YES I'M GLAD REGGIE'S GONE,
AND I HOPE HE BURNS IN HELL DOES WELL IN MIAMI!
