Bobby Hebert: Saints Hard-Pressed To Win If Cam Plays Well
Former Saints (and Falcons and USFL) quarterback Bobby Hebert, perhaps the most well known fan for all things Louisiana football joined Mac to discuss the upcoming clash for the top spot in the NFC South.
On the Saints loss to Seattle: The NFL is very humbling. Whenever you think you’re the best or you’re invincible, you get knocked off your high horse.
On the Saints being a different team in the Superdome: It’s perception that the Saints are unbelievable at home compared to the road. It’s somewhat correct, but really when you look at the facts, it’s not really the case.
On the Panthers offense: You have to give Coach Shula a lot of credit, how he’s coached up and handled Cam Newton, working to rely on the people around you. You’ve got a great supporting cast, utilize those running backs. When you’ve got make a big play down the stretch, just limit your mistakes and Cam can be truly unbelievable. If Cam plays to his ability, the Saints might be hard-pressed to win.
Bobby discusses other keys for both teams, including their strengths and weaknesses and what he ultimately thinks happens in this two game set between the two teams.
