Anthony Henry and Terrence Newman have to be like kids in a candy store thinking about that matchup
Actually Henderson is looking pretty damn good and he's as fast as anybody in the league. This 3rd year player is Horn's backup and is quitely having a breakout season. He has 7 TDs to his credit in limited playing time which is amazing. Believe me the guy can play. Copper is also looking pretty good but has had to crutial fumbles in the Cinny and Pitt games that cost us any chance to win.
Yea their not our A team but with defenses focusing on Deuce, Bush and Brees, it really hasn't mattered who is out there at WR. Brees just seems to get them the football. Still, I think you will handle them with ease.
Cute the first time, not anymore
Dang, and so many of you fell for it the first time.
And the best CB you've faced with Henderson and Copper as your primary WR's is the immensely overrated DeAngelo Hall. As a Saint's fan, I'm guessing you have seen a lot of him and probably realize that hes just not that great. I think Newman is a much better CB than Hall, not to mention that our defense is much healthier than the Falcons at this point.
Don't worry. I'm the one worring. If we win, it will make it all the more sweeter.
Copper will be a real familiar case study for them, I know nothing about Henderson except that he shouldn't start.
Yeah, that is all well and good but if Newman and Henry can shut down, or limit the output, much better receivers than them then I am sure they can control them.
With Coltson and Horn out... what do you recommend, Obi? Should we use the force?
Dallas had one of those fast as anyone players at one time, his name was Randal Williams and he didn't play more than a couple of years. I yawn at your Bob Hayes wannabe for they are a dime a dozen.
why shouldn't Henderson start? (is he hurt?)
he's an underrated player for them.
he's also been great on my fantasy team the past few weeks thanks to Colston's injury and Mr. Brees' resurgence.
He is starting out of necessity, you wouldn't start him if the other alternatives were ready to go. As for fantasy I don't pay any mind to that, it is not intereting to me. I only care about wins and losses and playing well enough to contribute to wins.
The difference is Henderson can play. People blink looking at Deuce and Bush and he's by you. That's why he has an incredible 7TDs in limited playing time. He may be better than Horn at this stage of his career anyway.
Denied by Newman just like Santana Moss or Andre Johnson or Steve Smith or Marvin Harrison.
look at him as an arguably faster more dangerous version of Patrick Crayton.
fantasy or not - the dude can play.
We'll see. Crayton would probably struggle in a starting role as well. Notice Sam Hurd and not Crayton started against the lowly Cardinals.
Ya I agree SaintsFan...Henderson is a gamer.
Too bad he's most likely gonna lie up against Newman. Henderson's a good player but, Newman will completely shut him down.
That's pretty impressive. Did you know that in 2004 the Saints traded 2 #1 picks (which we got for Ricky Williams) to trade up and pick Newman. Instead we picked fat arse DT Jonathan Sullivan who is now out of football.
UNREAL. We know about Newman.
correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe that's because they(Hurd & Crayton) play different positions...
