I probably scratched my nuts more times in the first half than their total rushing attempts the entire game. I know they're one of those pass first teams and they struggle running the ball, but it goes to show you how a balanced offense is more than likely the solution to teams like the Saints.
We've seen teams try and play the Saints like this all year long, and not even one of the top Passing offenses in the league stood a chance, but we saw Steven Jackson and the Rams take them out with a balanced Offense running the ball and passing to Brandon Lloyd.
Bottom line, why try and beat them in their own game?
