    Yeah, no McCourty would be a HUGE loss. We are going to need all 3 of our top CBs for this one. No Washington would be significant too, but not as much. We need the run game to control the clock and an effective, but not necessarily prolific, passing attack IMO.

    We can afford to drop 1 of the next 4 games, and by playing either Washington or McCourty, we could be setting ourselves up for more than 1 loss. I'd rather have both those guys at full speed next week, and not risk losing them both for the next 3. Yes it'll hurt our chances at winning this week, but what do we do when Hawkins is asked to start the remainder of the season?

    Just about every playoff simulation has us losing this game, but still making the playoffs if a few things fall into play, which IMO are very likely to happen.

    If Cinci beats Houston and we lose this week, I think we're pretty f***ed. To be safe, I'd like to see the Titans win out and that means all hands on deck this week.

    Definitely got to hope Cincy loses.If we win Sunday i think our chances increase dramatically of likely making the playoffs.

    Campbell is cleared for this week right? Well if McCourty is out we'll get to see Campbell covering Lance Moore or Robert Meachem, it'll be interesting.

    Jared Cook will be the X factor in this game, but only if Nate is out....I'm predicting he goes off for 7 catches, 105 yards, and a TD

    Not necessarily. The Bengals will still have to play the Ravens.

    I'm actually most concerned about the Jets at this point.

    I see us winning this game due to the weather. Wind projected 5 mpg NE, temp around 40. I'm not convinced Brees and he WR's have great timing or hands outdoors in cooler weather. I think CJ and the OL are getting prime.

    I think we'll be in reach in the 4th quarter and need a mistake or two by the Saints to take this game. It CAN happen! (I'm bringing up 10 teenagers. Told them NOBODY rides home unless their voice is gone :-0 )

    Nashville Police need to pull over the Saints bus and arrest Drew Brees for a crime and give him no bail, and then release him after the game for mistaken ID.
