Austin ArnoldContributor IDecember 6, 2008


Keys for Saints:

1. Control the Passing game- Drew Brees will need to beat young and inexperienced corners Horton and Grimes

2. Time Control- Keep Micheal Turner from burning up time

3. Shut down short passes- Roddy White, Jerious Norwood, and Harry Douglas have an unique ability to turn short passes long

Keys for Falcons

1. Come out Strong- Gain tempo and quiet crowd

2. Stop Running game- Stop Reggie Bush and new found talent Pierre Thomas from running up your defence. Force Saints to be one- dimensional.

3. Control the time.- If the Falcons control more of the clock than saints the game is over.
