A little tension is brewing down on Bourbon St. The Saints were supposed to be contending for the cover of Sports Illustrated every other week and instead find themselves 0-2 on the season with a very good chance to go down 0-3. Now I know the ladies from Chicks In The Huddle think that Reggie Bush has an axe to grind with Vince Young, being that he stormed the mountain top that was USC and killed their repeat chance back in college! I would guess that he does, but Reggie needs to get on with learning how to run inside and take hits from men instead of 19 year old kids. The Saints are looking pathetic and weak. They have stopped feeding Deuce the ball and consequently their running game has gone down the drain. Bush has reverted back to his high school daze of juking everybody side to side only to find himself going nowhere. All of this has put pressure on Drew Brees to find openings in the middle of the field that just aren’t there like they were last year do to defenses stacking the box.

Tonight Vince Young comes to town to do it all over again. He’s an underdog of 4.5 points and that is a real bad place to be if you’re a Saints fan. Young is 11-2 as a Dawg and 6-1 on the Road in his career. Head Coach Jeff Fisher is 63-37 as a Dawg and 58-44 on the road in his career. The Titans have an excellent offensive line that will create some holes against a smaller defensive front of the Saints. The Saints have not been able to cover anybody of late and this will put pressure on them to play soft zones and drop 7 into coverage leaving Young plenty of opportunities to get out on the edge and run wild!

A lot of people are expecting a shoot out tonight down in the Big Easy but in my opinion it could easily become a very physical medium scoring affair. The Saints have to have this game if they are to get back on track and get the Panic out of the air inside the locker room. The Titans relish being an underdog and flying under the radar of the media. Tonight they will get a chance to Come Out under the Bright Lights of Monday Night. I think this game will be very close and come down to a play being made by either Vince Young or Reggie Bush for the win.

Being that this game looks so close I wouldn’t bet on it but if I had to I would go with Vince Young and the Titans +4.5 points. The Saints may very well take this game simply because they have to but I don’t believe they will cover.

Bet Ya–
