Defensive end Turk McBride (ankle) was the only player that did not practice on Thursday. Wide receiver Marques Colston (foot) and LB Jonathan Casillas (knee) were limited in practice. QB Drew Brees (ankle), safety Roman Harper (wrist), and WR Devery Henderson took every rep in practice. The Saints are about as healthy as you can be headed into Sunday’s tilt with the Kansas City Chiefs at noon in the Superdome.
0 and 2:
The saints have their backs up against the wall as they try to avoid going 0 and 3 Sunday against Kansas City. Several players told me this week that the team has remained even keel, almost as if they were 2 and 0. “As much as we would like to go out and win 14 games this week, we can only win 1 game.” Brees said. The Black and Gold are not used to being in this position, but none the less remain as optimistic as ever… despite their shortcomings the first two weeks of the season.
Yeah, I definitely said it in week 1, but I really like the Saints in this match up. They’re at home, they are angry, and frankly don’t want to start 0 and 3. That’s why I like the Saints. They’re favored by 9 points, and I don’t think they cover by 8, but I do think they win. I can see it in the neighborhood of 30-24. The defense makes some strides, but all in all the offense carries the team.
