Which New Orleans Saints team will play against Houston Texans tonight?
Written by 

spag-vitt2-newIf the New Orleans Saints play like they did the last time they matched up against the Houston Texans in pre-season, it will be a long night for the home team in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

If they take on the Texans as they did during last year’s regular season, Brees and gang will score often and prevail against a powerful Houston offense.

 

 

Saturday night’s game is a showdown between two 2011 division champions.  During last year’s exhibition season,  the Texans manhandled the Saints 27-14 at Reliant Stadium.  A month later, the Saints overcame a Texan lead and won 40-33.

Much depends upon how Drew Brees does in what appears to be a game where the first teams will play much of the first half.

The Houston Texans certainly have their weapons in  Arian Foster and Ben Tate.

 The Saints hope to get great mileage from Brees, Colston and the rest of one of the most prolific offenses in decades.

The Saints take a 1-2 losing record into tonight’s match as they were surprised by a sharp performance by QB Blaine Gabbert of the Jacksonville Jaguars last Friday.

However, the Saints did get a good performance from its QB’s.  Drew Brees completed 10-of-13 passes for 133 yards with one touchdown pass and a 134.5 passer rating. Chase Daniel completed 16-of-21 throws for 185 yards with two scoring tosses and a 134.0 rating. 

Houston enters the game 2-0 having walloped the Carolina Panthers 26-13 and the San Francisco 49ers 20-9, a team that beat the Saints last year in the playoffs.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
