Lest We Not Forget

The Saints are a really good football team.  The Rams are not.  A lot has been forgiven, Rams fans, during the Rams “win streak” (2 weeks in a row without a loss!), but let’s not forget the previous 7 excruciating games.  The Saints have a high-powered offense and run 4 top-flight WRs on the field.  Ron Bartell (hopefully healthy), Quincy Butler, Jon Wade and Justin King will have their hands full.  They also sport an outstanding TE in Jeremy Shockey.  The Rams have had problems covering the tight end in the middle of the field in 2009, and Shockey will only increase that problem.

However, there is some silver lining to this cloud.  The Saints have been vulnerable to the run in their past two games against Miami and Carolina.  Both teams kept the game close, before New Orleans blew the doors off in the second half.  The Rams don’t have the defense that either Miami or Carolina does, but they do have a good run game like both those teams.  The Rams need to concentrate on running the ball and controlling the game.  That way, the Rams defense will stay off the field, which will keep them fresh for the fourth quarter.

Am I saying there is a chance?  No, but at least the Saints show a vulnerability to the Rams main strength.
