You can coach the living tar out of your players, but can you coach your players out of the tar? Has head coach Pete Carroll done this very thing? We give coach Pete his credit, he has earned much respect as a college head coach and now the long-running head coach of the Seahawks. It’s certainly easy for armchair coaches to criticize, it’s easy to point fingers and say what we think should be done, but we are not in the mans shoes. 

We see what happens week to week and we form opinions. Sometimes are opinions are fantastic, and sometimes they are way off the beaten path! It seems that coach Pete is losing his grip on this football team. The Seahawks were a once proud franchise that not so long ago beat the brakes off the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. It’s close to sacrilegious to say the Seahawks are the underdog at home, but can they beat the Saints tonight? It’s going to be a battle. Dial up the bookie and get moving with a top-notch deposit bonus. Start winning tonight

Carroll says he doesn’t want his team playing with a sense of urgency. We say that he is losing it! His team must play with urgency or they will quickly be buried in the cellar of what is arguably the most difficult division in the NFL. Only the Giants and the Lions have worse records than the Seahawks. “It's going to be a long way down the schedule, there are a lot of things that will happen around the league, and we have to take care of our business. As it is always the case, postponing judgment is a powerful tool if you have it and that's what we have to do." 

Well listen, ha, coach Pete can tell us all to “withhold judgment” as much as he likes, but we see the product on the field. YES, injuries are a killer and losing an all-pro quarterback such as Russell Wilson is devastating, but you know something Mr. Carroll, you need to dig deep and motivate this team, you and your staff are the one the buck stops with, will you deliver a game winning plan?

The Saints are fresh off a bye week with defensive end Marcus Davenport scheduled to play for the first time since week 1, linebacker Kwon Alexander, and starting receiver Tre ‘Quan Smith - all back in the mix. The saints have struggled with their passing game and have desperately missed the services of Smith, he brings a new dimension to a stale offense. 

Winston has been good, not great, not bad, but good. He comes in with 892 passing yards on the season, with 12 TD’s, and 3 INT’s. We can’t make a QB comparison in this game, without Wilson, it simply doesn’t exist. Having Smith back for the Saints is a big deal, and you can count on him touching the ball all night long.  

The Saints are scoring 25.4 ppg to the Seahawks 23.3 ppg. The Saints are allowing 18.2 ppg, while the Seahawks are allowing 24.8 ppg. The Saints are putting up 306.6 total yards of offense against 366.7 for the Seahawks. The Seahawks are better in the air for the fact that Wilson makes them better, he is out. The Saints have a better ground game – 125.8 yards-110.7 yards per game. The Saints allow 79.0 yards on the ground, and the Seahawks are allowing 140.8 yard per game on the ground. 

The Saints are not a bad football team and the Seahawks are reeling with injuries and player mismanagement. Coach Pete may have great hair, and look engaged on the sidelines while chewing the gum, but that doesn’t manufacture wins! Call your offshore bookie and jump in for a great chance to win big money on a Monday night.  

Pick: Saints -4 Over 42
