As much as the offense rebounding from a slump to light up the vaunted Panthers' defense stole the story, the Saints' defense was again dominant. They didn't shut down the run, but they slowed DeAngelo Williams enough to force passing, then they covered well and harassed Cam Newton all night long. The Galette/Jordan pass rushing tandem is quickly becoming one of the most fearsome in the NFL. Holding the Panthers to two field goals early was huge, and the Panthers finished with just 13 points.

The boys recap the Saints 31-13 domination of Carolina. Andrew begins by discussing Ralph's romantic text while Ralph pats himself on the back for predicting the score. The show then gets back to football and Junior Galette giving out body bags to Cam Newton.
Are the Saints struggles on the road as simple as the offensive line sucks away from the Dome? The boys argue if the Saints receivers are still very good.
Should you care about the indoor noise record? How disappointed should we be the Saints handed out dish towels.
Andrew breaks down the improvement of Corey White. Kevin wants to remind America THAT DREW BREES IS THE GOD DAMN MAN.
Plus, the boys announce a winner in their insult a family member contest and take your Twitter questions like will Kevin marry a listener, are Sean Payton and Steve Smith boys, or if you couldn't think of anything to print on a towel wouldn't you at least text Brett Favre to see if he had some ideas?
They then preview the St. Louis Rams game with mediocre insight from St. Louis resident Kevin.

What a difference a week and a change of venue makes to what was previously a majorly slumping offense. Home cooking was all that was necessary to boost the Saints and help them gash a vaunted Panthers defense that was ranked 2nd in the NFL giving up an average of 13 points per game. The offense put up 31, and the Panthers were fortunate it was that little. But while the Saints threw all over the Panthers at will, they really didn't get anything going on the ground at all. They'll probably have to have more success in that area in two weeks at Carolina to win. Below are my grades for this game:no comments
I just got home from what was an AWESOME game to witness in person. After that BS we suffered through in Seattle last Monday, it was a pleasure to see the Saints bounce back and absolutely pummel a team that had won eight streak games and was being drooled all over by national media. Oddly the Panthers were up 6-0 in this game, with two drives ending in a field goal after the Saints went three and out. The Saints then ran 31 straight points on the Panthers, before the final score ended as 31-13. Below are my bullets on the game:no comments
There's not much time to sulk about Seattle as the Saints are right back at it 6 days later, playing the Panthers tonight. Both teams sit tied atop the NFC South at 9-3 and the winner will take control of the division for the time being. From a stakes standpoint this game doesn't get any bigger. The winner will also take control of the 2 seed with the loser pushed back to the 5 seed. Here's five things I'll be looking for:no comments
Lance Moore has played in 9 of the Saints' 12 games this season, missing three with what was "hand/wrist injury". Could that be why he's been having such issues? Whatever it is, Moore has had a miserable season. In 9 games, he had 21 catches for 219 yards and 1 touchdown. Even when he is catching the ball, at an average of 2.3 times per game played, he's not doing much with it. He's had drops, not much separation and almost no plays downfield.no comments
It took me 12 weeks but I'm ON THE BOARD BABY!! Y'all didn't take me seriously so of course I had to oblige and sneak a weekly predictions win for the first time this season. Of course I won on a tiebreaker by virture of picking the Seahawks to win the game... so that's a pretty huge buzzkill. Depressing really. Anyway I join pretty much everyone else in 5th place, still chasing my wife and Gary J.

The Saints' defense was bad, too. Everyone and their mom knew that stopping the Seahawks starts with stopping Marshawn Lynch. The weird thing is the Saints absolutely did that. They got in positions numerous times to get off the field. But Russell Wilson would make the 3rd down throws and he would scramble. The effort was there and the hits were vicious, though, and even with the game out of hand and the defense getting spanked, you have to give them credit for sustaining the effort level throughout.no comments
The boys recap the Saints getting their ass handed to them in Seattle. Andrew was stunned by the fact the Saints stuffed Marshawn Lynch and still got crushed. Dave says its the worst performance of the Sean Payton Era.
Kevin explains how he watched with the death flu and if we shouldn't be surprised Rob Ryan got desperate as the game slipped away. Andrew explains why the Saints defense isn't creating turnovers.
Should the Seattle lose change what our expectations are for the 2013 Saints season?
The boys preview the Carolina and discuss if Steve Smith is a Top 5 Saints killer.

The Saints sucked on offense from top to bottom against the Seahawks. They played a superior opponent and pretty much got owned every way you could imagine. The offense put up 7 points, couldn't run the ball, blocked poorly, the receivers got no separation, and Drew Brees never had a chance. That results in 188 yards of offense and an embarrassing loss. The grades below aren't pretty, but of course you didn't expect anything else.no comments
