Open Thread - Chiefs v. Saints

New, comments

When: Tonight, 7:30 pm CDT

Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO

The New Orleans Saints certainly got the most exciting pick in this year's draft, Reggie Bush, but they still have a lot of work to do.  The Saints have the same preseason record as the Chiefs, 1-2, and probably have looked equally as poor.

The Saints beat the Titans in their first preseason game, 19-16.  The last two games they have played Dallas and Indianapolis, losing by 23 and 13 points respectively.  

This game should see more play from each team's starters, making it the most legit preseason game yet.  To watch for tonight:

  •  
  • The backup QBs.  Will Brodie Croyle be our #2 QB come the regular season?
  •  
  • Still watching the O-line.  Maybe tonight we'll be able to see a better picture of what we can expect in the regular season.
  •  
  • Reggie Bush of course.  For no other reason than he is the NFL's new Michael Vick.


Here are some articles to read today as well:

The Saints are 3 point underdogs tonight.
