The Eagles are very good at condensing things in the red zone, in part because they're such a quick and athletic group.Because of this, the running game has a chance to be successful, since they are not as strong or physical as they are quick Again, the power running game should be successful. If Payton decides to go to a power personnel group (three tight ends, two backs) playaction becomes a good option something the Saints have long been good at under Payton.I don't see the fade, or any of the spread stuff the Saints do being a huge part of the goalline package this week. I think the power game is the way to go.In fact, just in general, I think we'll see Reggie Bush, Mike Bell, Heath Evans, and Jeremy Shockey as the offensive stars for the week. Yes, the Saints will hit some vertical plays, but that will only follow some successful running and an effective short passing game.I have a little more confidence in the offensive gameplan today than I did a day ago, when I thought we'd be lucky to score twenty points Even now, though I don't expect a super high scoring game But I do think the Saints have a chance.Geaux Saints! . Now they may come out flat and still win by three touchdowns because let's face it this is probably the worst team they play so far. However, the attitude needs to be one of focus in order to make a statement, and also not get surprised.
Northwestern let Eastern get back in it and Michigan has got to avoid doing the same.2) Containment and getting off blocks Michigan has got to continue to earn some style points, and they also have to work on defensive containment in order to prepare for the conference portion of their season. One thing that can be taken away from Notre Dame is Michigan could have some potential problems with larger offensive fronts. They have to use better technique, stay lower and use their quickness to get off blocks better. If they can improve on those items then they will be in a much better spot.3) Ball hawking and gang tackling Michigan has to get back to gang tackling. If every guy is pursuing with speed and intelligence, then Michigan is gonna bust some plays up and get into the backfield. Michigan also needs to force more turnovers. They made a big play last week in the third quarter with Steve Brown forcing a turnover, but it would be nice to see some aggressive packages and a few more interceptions.4) The young guys will get some time Denard Robinson will get more meaningful snaps at quarterback in this game, and will probably throw the ball a little more. He will also get another really big run showing off his speed again. Robinson had a couple opportunities to make big plays against Notre Dame but the gaps closed a little more quickly.
William Campbell and Justin Turner will get valuable time in this game as depth is necessity.5) Tate Forcier will complete more than 70 percent of his throws I don't how many times I've heard that Forcier is a freshman and that they are going to make mistakes. My answer is also that they generally get better with experience, and Tate is no different. This will be another excellent game for Forcier as he will have a completion percentage above 70 percent in this game and at least two touchdown passes with no interceptions. Roger Huerta’s decision to leave the UFC over one year ago to pursue a film career among other ventures presented the feeling that he no longer had the will to fight. That fighter’s mentality that is necessary to compete in the sport.After three rounds with Gray Maynard at Ultimate Fight Night 19, Huerta showed that though he may be indecisive on his career path, he still has the heart, skill, and, apparently, the pain tolerance to compete at the highest level of mixed martial arts.Regardless of what Cecil Peoples will tell you, Huerta won the first round through the use of solid combinations (a set of which even stunned Maynard fairly badly), along with incredible takedown defense against one of the best and biggest wrestlers in the division.Unfortunately, fatigue caught him in the second and third round as his takedown defense was not enough against Maynard’s wrestling.Yet the true moment that belonged to Roger Huerta in that fight was in the third round. Maynard had stuck Huerta to the mat, and even he was unable to scramble out of it.
Maynard worked for a kimura, and it looked like a very good one.With tremendous amount of torque put forth on his shoulder and arm, Huerta continued to remain calm He quite simply refused to quit. Maynard let it go, and several minutes later the fight had ended.Huerta came up short on the judges’ scorecards, though one judge saw it fit to give him the victory due to the close second round.This was Huerta’s first bout since August of 2008, a fight he lost to former number one contender Kenny Florian. After the fight, Huerta announced his indefinite hiatus from mixed martial arts and the UFC to pursue a career on the silver screen.The irony of the matter is that the Hollywood movies about the man who came from humble roots to success and stardom mirrors Huerta’s life in an uncanny way.Spending several years of his life on the streets due to a tragic fallout of his family, Huerta stayed in school and became involved in wrestling. The same person that coached him into the wrestler he is today adopted Huerta when Roger reached the age of 19.Shortly after, Huerta became involved in mixed martial arts, participating in his first fight on Aug 2 of 2003. Working his way through lower echelon organizations and promotions, Huerta rose to a career in the UFC.After two victories inside the octagon, Huerta took on a bout with Leonard Garcia. Sports Illustrated was looking to have a mixed martial artist featured on the cover of one of their magazines, believing Randy Couture was the man for the job.However, after three rounds of non-stop excitement and a tremendous photograph of Huerta in action, Sports Illustrated decided to give the boy from humble beginnings a place on the front of one of their magazines.Since that day, Huerta managed to win three more fights, along with gaining the support of fans worldwide, who were sad to see him walk away with such a promising future ahead of him.Yet, he stepped back into the octagon last evening with the same ability and desire to win that all of his fans had grown so accustomed to, as he showed the kind of heart it takes to be a fighter.While he may have came up on the short end a decision, Huerta came to fight, and showed no signs that he could not compete with the best in the lightweight division.
