Week Seven Outlook

Week Seven Outlook

Heading into this Sunday’s game against the Saints, I’ve been asked a few times if I’m expecting a shootout against Drew and if I’ll be able to match him.

The defense will prepare all week to go out there and play really good defense; that’s what they do every week. That’s the same thing we’ll do on offense.

We have so much to worry about on our side of the ball, just as they do on their side. We’re just worried about going out there and putting out a good day on offense. As long as we can do our part, everybody can do their individual part, then everything else will take care of itself.

I don’t necessarily think playing the Saints means we have to do anything different on offense ourselves. I think when you get into the game, and certain situations come up, then yes. The play-caller may be affected in certain ways. But as far as I’m concerned, we’re going out there and trying to put up 50 points every week. It shouldn’t really matter.

In regard to Drew not being as tall as guys like me-- I think so much is made about guys that are undersized playing in this league. It really just comes down to guys that can play, having the talent, having the drive to work as hard as he does. He’s just a good QB.

The other part of that is he works really, really hard at what he does. He deserves everything he’s gotten.

We have a good game plan in place for this week on both sides of the ball. As long as we can execute like we know we are capable of, then our chances of walking away with a win should be pretty good. But the Saints are a good team. They aren’t going to make it easy on us, just like we are not going to make it easy for them.

In the end, this one could come down to who can make the big play when it matters most. In situations like that, I like our chances.
