Saints Nation: Pregame vs. Cardinals

The Saints will host the Cardinals today in a matchup that I actually think it quite favorable for New Orleans on paper. Also for some good news, everyone on the active roster for the Saints is expected to be healthy enough to play. The four players listed on the injury report: Malcolm Jenkins, Lance Moore, Bobby McCray and Pierre Thomas are all expected to go. This also means other players that have been on the injury report for a large part of the season are as healthy as they've been all year (Shockey, Bell, Sedrick Ellis, Randall Gay, Vilma and Sharper to name a few). Anquan Boldin and Gerald Hayes for the Cardinals are both gametime decisions, but word out there is that both are a stretch to play.

Check out my pregame thoughts on this matchup by going HERE. As the title suggests, I expect a shootout.

Enjoy the game, Saints fans, and if you're going: make sure you are LOUD! Deuce McAllister will apparently lead the team onto the field today as an honorary captain. That will be a sight to see for sure. This is the playoffs, so it's time to get fired up! Win or go home. GEAUX SAINTS!

and just in case you needed an excuse to get fired up...
