Saints Set DVR: That's So Raven

We are less than three hours from the Saints and Ravens Monday Night Football skirmish in the Superdome.  At the end of the evening, the Saints will either be the sole-division leader with the worst record (5-6) or tied with Atlanta atop the NFC South with the worst record among division leaders (4-7).

Joe Flacco: Delaware Blue Hens QB
This game will come down to whether or not the statue of Delaware's greatest quarterback in Blue Hen history, Joe Flacco, will have time to exploit the Saints glaring weakness at safety.  Flacco comes into the game cooler than chilled concrete with a TD:INT ratio over his last four games of 5:5 after starting the year (first 6 games) 12:3 (CBS Sports). 

Rafael Bush is out, leaving recently-signed-from-Minnesota's-practice squad, Pierre Warren to sort things out in the deep middle third of the field.  




Warren, a Saints standout in training camp who didn't make the cut, should have a pretty good grasp of Rob Ryan's terminology and schemes. Whether or not he can prevent "The Smiths (Steve and Torrey)" from performing their greatest hits from "Louder Than Bombs" remains to be seen.

"The Saints never lose prime-time games in the Dome!"  
That line of reason will be firmly tested tonight by a Ravens team hell-bent on keeping up with their Edward Starks' as Quad-Wardens of the (AFC) North. 

Pierre Warren in the lineup is reason for concern.  Pierre Thomas back from his four weeks on the shelf with rib and shoulder injuries and no one is happier to see him than #9.  With rookie Brandin Cooks done for the year, Thomas out of the backfield can do wonders for Drew Brees passing percentage on seam and drag routes.  Always a tough matchup for a floating defensive end or linebacker, Thomas could prove pivotal to the Saints success tonight.

Mark Ingram is expected to maintain his role as the primary pulpwood hauler among the Saints fleet of running backs.  A close to perfect scenario would feature game-ending stats similar to:

Ingram-21 carries, 107 yards, 1 TD
Thomas-10 carries, 63 yards, 1 TD, 6 receptions, 73 yards, 1 TD
Cadet-5 carries, 31 yards, 4 receptions 38 yards

Jimmy Graham really seems to show up in these spotlight games.  I would be surprised by an output below 8 catches, 80 yards, 1 TD.


Follow Me To Freedom!
And then there's Brees.  The Saints savior so often has been the fuse for the bomb that has destroyed this team throughout the year.  With a turnover ratio of (-9), Brees draws the greatest criticism for his 10 interceptions and costly fumbles.  If there is one guy the Fleur de' lis fellas can count on to lead them out of the abyss, it's Drew Brees. 

Tonight, Saints fans will follow him to freedom and a much-needed win to snap a two-game funkfest in the Dome. Final score? Saints 37, Ravens 30.

Calvary QB Gets SEC Offer And High School Playoffs: Who Looks Good

Calvary Cavaliers' Shea Patterson QB gets offer from WOO PIG SOOIE Razorbacks. Would Arkansas with Bret Bielema be a better fit than Les' LSU Tiger team? Big discussion about that today on the show. Catch the podcast and hear what Fletch and a very angry caller had to say about why he isn't returning to Tiger Stadium until there is a big change.

Fletch and Coach Gatlin discuss a few of tomorrow night's high school playoff match ups:

-Fair Park has a good shot at the upset at LaGrange.

-Benton's defense will be right for Belle Chasse to cope with.

- Tough task for Woodlawn. Easton has best receiver in state and best group as well. Knights will put up a fight though, may just come down to who wants it more.

- Ab and North DeSoto got a pretty rough draw with 26 seed Northside. There needs to be an extra pack of gum ready.

Minden, with their athleticism and youth are on the way. Minden looks good in this matchup.

More Trouble For Parkway Football

Update (3:40 pm):
The LHSAA has ruled the player in question ineligible for the final regular season game. The young man is a senior and will miss his final game after he was allowed to participate in the Spring Game while ineligible. 

There is an additional cash fine of $700-$3,000 levied against Parkway for this violation.

There is no extension of team ineligibility through the 2015 season and no additional forfeitures as a result of this latest issue.  

The school is on Restricted Probation for 1-year.  

There will also be no litigation or attempt at arbitration to overturn the decision by the Executive Committee from Wednesday, November 5,2014.  As a result, Parkway will definitely not be participating in the 2014 football playoffs and the five forfeits will stand.  
========================================================================
Is there more trouble coming for the Parkway football team? Apparently so.

Parkway faces Restrictive Probation after another violation of an LHSAA rule, this one occurring during the Spring semester of 2014, has been reported.  If the ruling comes from the LHSAA in conjunction with the ineligibility violation the association dealt with Wednesday, the Panther football team's punishment will occur this season.  If the ruling carries over into next year, Parkway could be ineligible for the 2015 football playoffs.

The newly reported violation involves a reportedly ineligible student athlete's participation in the 2014 Spring football game. As we learn more about this, we will share.

Again, though... this is an apparent rule violation that has nothing to do with the success of the Parkway players on the field in 2014 and certainly has no effect on the 2015 season.

We urge the LHSAA to uphold the rules but redirect the punishment to properly fit the violation.  Taking kids, who have done nothing against the rules, and removing them from the playoffs by forcing forfeitures is an archaic, ineffective method of dealing with the issue.
