After an up and down performance last week, I think it’s safe to say you should sit the Saints defense. I mean, I’m going to start them, but I always do. That’s just what I want to do.

But this is a dangerous Lions offense, and no matter how well the Saints have played defensively at times they’ve never managed to hold it together for a full game. The Lions will likely be one-dimensional, as they have no running game to speak of and the Saints have played well against the run recently. But until Delvin Breaux looks like Delvin Breaux against, I can’t trust the secondary.

Also, who knows if Vaccaro will play.

This game should be a shootout. Go offense, offense, offense. And defense, too, if you’re feeling reckless.
