    Some observations as we're headed to the last 2 minutes of the Saints vs Vikings game.

    On D:
    • If RT Zach Strief is out for a long time, it could be tough goings for the Saints OL (aka movable force)
    • Of course, that may not matter versus the inept NE rush (aka resistible force)
    • Kamara is as scary as Kareem Hunt -- we'll find out if it's the NE scheme that was the issue or simply not having enough talent on the front-seven
    • Brees is still Brees but there are obvious kinks with his new receivers (they miss Cooks)
    • Ramcyz, the LT they got for Cooks' 1st rounder looks like a rookie
    • Peterson looks done but he may squeeze out a good game at home
    On O:
    • The Saints secondary looks as confused as ever, leaving Pats-sized holes for big plays
    • Cam Jordon must be contained -- the guy can single-handedly wreck the passing game
    • Mante Te'o can be exploited but hey no Julian (hopefully MCD can better utilize RBs pass-catching talents)
    • Speaking of, with Foster now out of the system, boos on trading Lewis and he could have a big game
    • If NE OL can give similar level of protection that Bradford got today, I think Cooks and Hogan will have a big game
    History:
    • The last time NE played in NO, they got blown out 38-17
    • That was the infamous game where Brady and BB talked about the lack of mental toughness on the team (hmmmm)
    • The last time NE played NO was at home, the thrilling comeback win 30-27 but you know, different players, different teams
    It's a huge game for both teams as one will go down 0-2. Per Oddsshark.com:
    If Brady and Company pull this off, they get the terrible-looking Texans in Week 3. Time to start a winning streak.

    That wasn't even the best comeback of the day.

    Maybe I'm scarred from Week 1 but I think I'd take Saints +7 all day.

    As expected Hightower and Amendola were not at practice today.

    Kenbrell Thompkins!
    Show ponies!
    That's your quarterback!

    .....

    Ortiz steps in
    Benoit the big right hander delivers
    Swing and a high deep drive into right!
    The ball was scalded to right
    Hunters on the move
    He's racing back
    It's over his head!
    He's over the wall and into the bullpen and that ball is gone!
    It's a home run!
    This game is tied!
    This game is tied!
    David Ortiz!
    David Ortiz!
    David Ortiz!

    Gronk said he just had the wind knocked out of him on the non-TD. Hopefully he looks a bit better Sunday
