and this injury will tilt this game to the Saints I believe. This guy is a better corner than I EVER thought possible. I remember Plaxico burning him for multiple touchdowns in the 99' Citrus Bowl.(FL vs. MSU) But his work ethic and their coaching has really made a huge difference. He's been good against us since he was drafted and Payton WILL exploit his absence this weekend. Payton is very smart and knows how to scheme for Johnson's defense-look for Reggie Bush to be a big part of it as well on those bubble screens. Couple that with the fatigue factor-believe me, that was a VERY physical game against the Giants last weekend-and I've changed my mind about this game. N.O. will be sky high at home and will win this game. On defense, N.O. has holes Philly can exploit but not if N.O. stays aggressive and brings 9 into the box. Garcia can't throw a good long ball to save his life, everthing is dink and dunk-ultimate wimpy west coast stuff. I'm pretty confident Philly runs out of steam this weekend. N.O. 27 Philly 20.
