Id like to get the LARAMS if for no other reason, than home game in Tampa.
And if the Bears can beat the Aints, then why not GB too, and then we get the Bears in the NFC Championship game, at home, on the way to a home super bowl.
I can’t speak for everyone else, but I’m honestly rooting for them to get a first round exit in Brees’ likely last season. I’d freakin LOVE that!! Plus the bonus of hosting a Divisional round game is icing on the cake.
If you told me we were beating the Saints then yea I would take them but after how they beat us last game I dont know i would believe you and just hope the bears take them out. Besides the chiefs I think the Saints are the only team who I think would blow us out in a game. Other games would should be close and think we might be able to win against.
Important matchups we need to win on defense is cook need a safety or corner on him, kamara on the flats, Davis has Thomas clamped.
Armstead vs JPP he totally stifled jpp last game Armstead closest thing to a weakenss is his ability to handle a bull rush that is converted from speed to power. Jpp isn’t gonna go around armstead but all he can do is collapse that left side to make things uncomfortable on rush downs
On the outside on offense torch those corners on go routes when they press, and Brady needs to let it rip like Fitzpatrick two years ago. Rb’s Attack the flats force those linebackers to get out of the passing lanes and cover ground pickup those paper cut yards of 3-5. All these will lead to more time and their defenseline on their heels.
He’s 0-4 against Payton as the Bucs HC, and in embarrassing fashion.
This is a chance to redeem himself.
Yup. Might not find ourselves in this position again in near future. Let’s get it now rather than see how long it will take to get back. Also let’s send Brees on retirement without a ring to close it out. Nothing would be better. Except winning then winning the nfc championship game but we will have to get there first and beat the saints!! Go bucs!
The nice thing is that I think the Rams defense will handle the Packers, so if we get by the Saints, we’d host the Rams for the NFC Championship game (oh wait…bad memories rolling in here (’79, 99′)). I’m confident our offense will be a lot better this time around. They’ve started using a lot more of the concepts that Brady has used for years, mixed in with the bombs. Plus we’ll actually be healthy on offense, save Cappa. Last time we played them, we were really struggling with concepts and timing. The offense really wasn’t playing well during that stretch, but did find ways to stay in the games against the Chiefs and Rams. The adjustments they made at the Bye have been quite profound and should make a difference.
