There are numerous threads and topics on the AFCCG but not one on the NFCCG (unless I missed it). Just wanted to start this to know what the thoughts are on Saints vs Rams match up and predictions rest of the way. My thoughts: While Saints are a very good home team, they can be contained. They struggled right from the get go against Eagles in the divisional round. Brees’ interception on the first part of the game gave Eagles momentum right away. Saints already beat Rams in a shootout once at home but if they start slow or turn the ball over early, Rams won’t let up. While home field certainly helps the Saints, I don’t think their defense is entirely capable of shutting down Rams. McVay is a creative play caller and knows how to get the best from his guys. Most, if not all of their losses, were due to poor performance by Goff. On the defensive side for Rams, the have many big name players, but, aside from D-line I am not sure their overall defense is that good. They need to get off the field and give Goff as many chances as they can to score. I do not know too much about match ups, schemes, Xs and Os and so on. I’d appreciate if anyone can post in detail what match up are favorable for each team. As for the best Superbowl match up, I think Saints vs Pats makes for a great match up. Two of the great football minds going at it. Lot of story lines to go with this match up. Also, it’ll be nice to see Brees and Payton win a second ring. Rams are a young team and are definitely capable of being back on this stage. For that reason, I would like to see Pats vs Saints in Superbowl. Also, McVay is only 33. So he has plenty of time to win Your thoughts ?
