I was in the Dome on Sunday as the Saints pulled out an impressive victory over the division-rival Falcons (or, Dirty Birds as I prefer to call them). Coach Peyton was clearly happy to see Pierre Thomas prove himself capable of carrying the load that once belonged to Deuce McAllister, whom many suspect is in the process of playing his last few games in a Saints uniform. This impressive performance by Thomas contributed to a rare good day on the ground for the Saints, who have thus far mostly relied on the passing attack to move the ball. Because of the run-heavy play calling, Drew Brees fell nearly 100 yards short of his season average (and NFL leading) 322 yds/game. Nonetheless, he managed to lead his team to victory in a game which went down to the last drive. This will be a tough week of practice, for we only have three days until we leave for our Thursday night game in Chicago.

Saints guaranteed Super Bowl victory! posted on 12/11/2008

Thats right- the Saints were guaranteed a trip to the 2009 Super Bowl today as 3 inches of snow fell on New Orleans. For only the SECOND time since 1989, New Orleans took on snow on a bizzare Thursday, December 11th. Select schools and businesses closed througout a city which is home to NO snowmobiles or drivers who know how to handle snow on the roads. Many joyfully speculated that the occasion was rare enough that the Saints must be on their way to good fortune.

The blissful irony of the day lies in the fact that the Saints, who travel to Chicago today, will be playing in dry weather. Chicago is forecasting cold tempurature and wind chills (perhaps as low as in the 20s) but no snow. This weather will most likely have an effect on the game, and Coach Peyton has most certainly structured the gameplan around this. If winds end up being bad and Drew Brees had trouble getting the ball through the air, we will see a lot of Pierre Thomas in hopes that he is able to continue the success that he experienced last week. I went to the game in Chicago last year (week 17) and the conditions were miserable. Soldier Field is right off of lake Michigan and the winds that come inland can be brutal and they dip way down into the stadium. It would not surprise me to see a run-heavy game for the second week in a row.
