    I expect the Saints to win, but they're playing .500 ball the past 6 weeks so who knows. Just can't see Carolina, as bad as their offense has looked at times, going to NOLA and winning.

    The way cam is playing the saints win this easily... All Cam needs to do is be a game manager with his arm and run with his legs but lately the dude is a turnover machine and its amazing.


    16 interceptions and 9 fumbles

    I'm taking the Saints. They beat them twice in the regular season and have home field advantage.

    This is making lean towards Carolina. Tough to beat anyone 3 times in a year. Damn they beat them by double digits twice. I guess Saints win in a close one, as Carolina does make some adjustments, but the Saints overall owning of them proves too much.

    Carolina. Saints beat them twice and itís damn hard to beat a team 3 times in the same season.

    Cam generally ups his game under the spotlight. They need to get McCaffery the ball more in the flat like they did against GB.

    Brees tends to flop in big games. But that might not matter when you have that 2 headed running game of Ingram and Kamara.

    Drew Brees has 24 TDs to 6 INTs in 11 playoff games. 100.7 rating. 2009 (Superbowl winner) he had 8 TDs to 0 INTs for a 117 rating that playoffs.

    I wouldn't say he flops at all. And you even alluded to the running game, so even if he was a flopper, this is a different type of Saints team. They need him to manage the offense not be the offense like he was in his career.

    This Saints team is good and wouldn't be surprised to see the Saints vs LAR in the NFCCG.

    He hasn't been to the playoffs since 2013 where he looked fairly pedestrian. He has thrown an interception in 3 of his last 4 games. This isn't your NFL MVP Drew Brees. But right, this also isn't a team that needs NFL MVP Drew Brees.

    This is the absolute worst matchup for us in the entire league. Nothing shy of NO ******** the bed and us having a great game will help us. Our trash receivers won't do anything on their secondary, so CMC and Olsen are our only threats.

    I'd bet at least half his turnovers are on his receivers this year, with KB causing the majority. Once KB was traded Cam had two INTs before the **** show in Atlanta, and both were receiver errors. Cam started the year rough, but at this point he can only do so much to fix the trash around him. I have almost as many career yards as our #2/3/4/5 WRs combined. Byrd was looking good then got IRd, so now we're back to the same slow and talentless offense we were when KB was here.

    Teams that play another team 3 times after going 2-0 in the regular season are 11-5, so statistically it is easy to beat a team 3 times lol.

    McCaffery one of the most over-hyped/rated guys in the nfl. If your a top 10 pick as a back you should be getting 1K on the ground to begin as a foundation. His pass catching is nice but the guy barely has over 1k yards from scrimmage combined rushing and catching. His YPC is pedestrian. If I wanted a slot receiver I could find guys like Cole Beasley or Edelman undrafted or in the 7th. 7 total tds. I mean he still has potential and COULD be a stud, but I hear announcers and writers talk/report like the guy is some amazing **** right now. I was big on him before the draft, but have cooled a bit. His run blockers aren't the greatest, but I still think he should of produced more as a rookie. RB the easiest transition to the NFL.
